Cannabis enthusiast and student of the art of solventless extraction
Frenchy Cannoli’s impact on the cannabis community helped shape an entire industry, specifically the hash-making game. He forever changed the way that hash is recognized and appreciated, inspiring countless individuals during his life. Even after his passing, he will undoubtedly inspire many more. Thanks to his primary apprentice, Cherry Blossom Belle, and others in his inner circle who learned directly from his expert-level skills, the traditional ways of making hash continue to emerge in this high-tech space.
Cherry Blossom Belle is not only the lead hash maker at Heritage Mendocino, she also leads the Lost Art of the Hashishin Workshops that Frenchy Cannoli pioneered.
The Lost Art of the Hashishin workshops are put on by Belle and Madame Cannoli to continue Frenchy’s educational legacy. Participants spend a day learning the ancient technique of sieving but with a modern twist, using a very basic mini washer easily purchased online. Belle gives a hands-on demonstration of the ice-water sieving method that Frenchy adapted and perfected.
The instructions will go beyond making ice water hash with a small, compact washing machine that the home hobbyist can easily obtain. She also provides insights and guidance on the commercial application of this process.
So whether you’re a small-scale hash maker or you’re looking to incorporate this craft into your commercial brand, The Lost Art of the Hashishin workshop has something for you.
