Cannabis Now Article Thrills Me for Days

OCTOBER 03

2017

I am not going to lie…I am excited for all of the amazing days to come.  I woke up yesterday to see this absolutely beautifully written articie about…Me!  My garden, filled with Spanish and Mendocino genetics was featured on the Cannabis Now website.  I sure do hope it comes out in print also.  There is something about the written word held in hand *fingers crossed.*

I am overjoyed also because I have worked hard to make a positive impact in the cannabis industry.  I have only been over here for three years, but I am always eager to learn something and to boldly forge mutual beneficial partnerships both here and abroad.  As I get ready for another trip to Spain (5 more days!!!), I am keenly aware that many eyes are on me and other movers and shakers of the community.  Cannabis has been maligned for so very long, but the tide is turning.  Those who are dedicated to sustainable and above board practices must be the leaders of tomorrow.

The author, Ellen, and the photographer, Gracie, visited my garden last year.  As this year’s garden is significantly larger than last year, I am eager for them to see my growth; no pun intended.  My plants, many near harvest, sway gently in the ever present wind.  It is late morning and the rustle of the leaves is the dominant sound on this quiet, clear day.  As Ellen and Gracie walk around the concentric circles of plants, marveling at the different hues and pungent aromas, I stand to the side and smile.  I wonder how many other cannabis fairylands are located on the myriad of Oakland rooftops.  Urban farming is the new trend.  Cannabis forests on rooftops will be a revolution!

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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....

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...

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....

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...

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...

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...

Making Good Hash Rosin = Life

NOVEMBER 27 2017 I strive to approach life like making good hash rosin; moving methodically with consistent purpose and always putting my best fot forward.  Details like filling the bag to the edges and the method of folding parchment paper really do matter and make...

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...
