Lime Green Piña Limonada

JULY 03

2017

You could say I am playing a dangerous game, but I think I’ve good a good handle on it.  Truthfully, I AM playing with fire, but it is for good reason.  I am allowing males to live in a sequestered part of the garden because I am slowly mining them for their leaves.  I have recently learned about the power of raw cannabis.  I started with this article on Leafly and kept reading more articles about raw cannabis’ benefits.

Prior to learning about their vast nutritional value, I was simply pulling the immature male flowers off of the plants.  Now that flower is in full swing, the number of male flowers has increased greatly.  I have an eager ‘Medellín Magic’ who wants to impregnate the world.  Seriously.  I have to watch day and night just t make sure I have removed all traces of sacs swollen with pollen.  And now that I am making smoothies, I cut off 6 inch lengths to get the leaves and to not have to deal with removing so many sacs in small groupings.  This way, I capture 5 or 6 flowering sites.  Some, like the Rosetta Stone, put out a whole lot of leaves and I am more than happy to snip snip snip.

And one of the best ways to ingest this raw cannabis is with tasty smoothies.  Therefore, my latest incarnation is this Lime Green Piña Limonada.  I feel like I am on the beach in the Caribbean.  Next, I’ll make a concoction with coconut milk.  Let’s see how it all turns out!

Advanced Autumnization

I am not even sure 'autumnization' is a word, but it definitely appropriate.  My Purple Trainwreck and some of my Pre-98 Bubba Kush have been undergoing a colorful transformation similar to the beautiful show the New England countryside puts on very year.  The only...

I have begun to make Hash from this years garden

DECEMBER 04 2017 After washing three different plants last week - Icer (bred by R-Kiem Seeds), Bloodwreck, and Rosetta Stone (bred by Gea Seeds), I feel myself getting back into the groove.  I squished hash today to make uniquely flavored hash rosin.  Pictured here...

Making Good Hash Rosin = Life

Hell yes for the Holy Headband Hash Rosin

13 JUNE, 2017 Running behind, but Hashish must be made into Rosin Time is ticking and I feel a bead of sweat pearl on my brow.  Clad in a grey suit dress, I am ready to make my way to the NCIA Cannabiz Summit in downtown Oakland.  However, as a concentrates producer...

Cannabis Lasagna

SEPTEMBER 05 2017 As soon as I got back to California, I made use of the freedoms we have here. I love that I can eat my plants as well as grow them. Today I had the last of my weed lasagna.😞 I really wish I had more 😣.  Making the lasagna was wonderful as I love to...

Sour Split Autobuddered

29 MARCH, 2017 This is a curious post on which to start blogging, but one has to start somewhere.  This picture depicts heaven on parchment.  Actually, I would say that about any hash or hash rosin over a 8.5 (on a 10 point scale), so don't take my effusiveness quite...

It has been a while, but things were in the works

I must admit that I did not build out this section of my website as I had planned.  However, I remember every single detail of what happened along the way of getting my first large(r) outdoor garden going.  This past summer, I grew the following cultivars: Holy...

Gelato and Sour Tangie Hashish

OCTOBER 02 2017 Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of teaching an exclusive hash class at @greenflowermedia‘s studio.  I had most of my tools and instruments n hand. At its core, hash making is fairly rudimentary – cannabis, buckets, sieving screens, water and ice....

O-O joints turn Spooky Sesh into Smoky Sesh

OCTOBER 31 2017 Living in Miami Beach, Halloween was always a big deal.  Lincoln Road would become an endless river of new, bold, personal expressions that usually bordered on the extreme.  Although the people pressed upon me was a bother by the end of...

My cannabis plants are chilly and I need to be patient

03 JUNE, 2017 It's the first week in June and this is when everyone in the Bay is putting their cannabis plants outside to enjoy the bountiful sunlight.  I put my plants out a few weeks ago.  Acclimating is taking a little longer than I would like.  The plants are...

Dank for Dankness Sake

NOVEMBER 26 2017   Dank for the sake of dankness...because the sun shines with no apologies to the clouds. I walked into this hashmaking game totally fresh faced and a bit reluctantly, but I definitely wanted the opportunity to write for a magazine I had read for...

Tropical Fantasy BubbleHash has me swooning

28 April, 2017   I grew a great amount of cannabis on the roof last year.  I have provided patients with a few pounds.  However, I have mainly been doing nugruns of my flower.  I prefer concentrates (and particularly bubble hash) to flat out smoking flowers, so...

Trash into cash? Not so much…

05 JUNE, 2017 When people first starting paying attention to cannabis concentrates, one of the mantras was, “turn trash into cash.”  This was an oversimplification of the newly discovered uses for the sugar trim that is leftover after the last stage of trimming....
