A Tribute to Frenchy Cannoli

Frenchy Cannoli
December 13, 1956 – July 18, 2021

Green Alley honors master hash maker Frenchy Cannoli, well-loved teacher, consultant, artisan and activist dedicated to the production and appreciation of traditional cannabis concentrates.

Frenchy grew up in Nice, France but left home as soon as he could, inspired by the promise of exotic adventure — and by the imported hashish common in late-60s Europe. 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, he 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.
