Master Hashish Maker Frenchy Cannoli Has Died
He lived nomadically for over twenty years, staying with traditional producers and learning techniques handed down over generations.
This took him from Morocco to Mexico, to Nepal, Pakistan, and India, where he spent eight growing seasons living in caves and harvesting cannabis resin with Parvati Valley cultivators.
Eventually, Frenchy finally settled with his family in California, where early medical access laws let him go from hiding his life’s work to producing legal cannabis concentrates.
Arguably, Frenchy has done more for elevating hash and arguing for traditional hashish production methods—than anyone else in the modern cannabis industry.
His passing will leave a void for his family—and also his many, many fans in cannabis.

Frenchy was a California-based teacher, consultant, artisan, and activist dedicated to the production and appreciation of traditional cannabis concentrates.
Born and raised in the South of France, he left home as soon as he could, inspired by the promise of exotic adventure — and by the imported hashish common in the late-60s Europe.
