A form of potent, hand-rubbed hashish exported from Nepal to Europe and North America in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Nepalese temple balls were spherical or egg-shaped, and smoothed by hand with a polished appearance.
Nepali Buddhists revere hashish as a sacrement, and use it in their rituals.
If you got your hands on some some real temple balls, you were very fortunate, and were in possession of some of the best hash in the world.
Nederhash refers to hashish produced in the Netherlands, and typically sold in coffeeshops in Amsterdam and other Dutch cities. It is made by compressing the cannabis resins produced by marijuana plants, into a flat, slate-like form.
We traveled to Amsterdam for the Cannabis Cup competition, and smoked some great nederhash.
Someone who's interest in cycling extends beyond mere enjoyment of the sport, and who is overly infatuated with the equipment itself. Obsessed with purchasing, or at least admiring, the very latest, overpriced frames, components, and even the apparel worn like spandex shorts and carbon fiber shoes.
A bike geek will spend $8,000 on a pro racing bike just to ride laps around Prospect Park, and then keep it next to his bed at night.
Grey mist is a product exclusively available at the Grey Area coffeeshop in Amsterdam, Holland. It is produced by separating cannabis trichomes (THC crystals) from the mature marijuana flower buds that produce them. In other words, it is a powdered form of hashish in it's purest form.
This popular product has elevated the American owned-and-operated Grey Area coffeeshop to legendary status in the cannabis comminity.
We smoked some Grey Mist trichomes, and got incredibly buzzed.

slang for a tubular bicycle tire commonly used by professional road racers and track riding specialists.
A tubular tire is constructed by completely enclosing the inflatable inner tube within the rubberized tire casing, and then literally sewing the casing together around it with an industrial sewing machine (hence the term "sewup"). A protective strip is then bonded to the tire to protect the stitching from abrasion. The tire is physically attached to the wheel rim by gluing it in place with contact cement.
This design is somewhat archaic, and has been replaced for the most part by the more modern, beaded tire, or "clincher", which utilize a separate inner tube and open-style casing held in place by air pressure alone, much like an automobile tire.
Sewups, or tubular, tires are best suited to high-performance applications, because of their inherent lighter weight. However, due to the labor-intensive mounting procedure and higher manufacturing cost, the popularity of this design has diminished in recent years.
Lance Armstrong rides sewup tires in the Tour De France so his wheels are as light as possible for the mountain climbing stages.
