Dank for Dankness Sake

NOVEMBER 26

2017

 

Hashish pressed flat on my handDank 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 years.  In effort to prepare me to be able to talk eloquently about Hashish, Frenchy poured his dedication into teaching me; dazzling me with stories and patiently answering every question. I eventually came to appreciate the conversation that we hashmakers have with the material, the ice, and the water.  However, I took to the pressing action right off the bat.  To tell the truth, it is the moments of yielding that is the crux of my enjoyment.  When dried resin is piled together and rolled with hot glass, it fuses together.  Once thoroughly pressed, the mass of resin is ripped swiftly from parchment or polyurethane in one fell swoop. The warm mass is then massaged into a beautiful specimen of dankness.  Allowed to relax, the oil expresses and oozes through the surface.  How can I not fall in love with the gleam and sparkle of unapologetic dankness.

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...

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...

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...

Making Good Hash Rosin = Life

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...

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...

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...

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....

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...
