The dangerous (and failed) experiment of cannabis prohibition is slowly, very slowly, coming to a close.

There is a modern market for cannabis of all varieties and preparations. Amongst them remains a historical constant:


Hashish has evolved quite a bit since the 1100s. TEchniques, technology, and terminology have all grown substantially, yet the essence of hashish and what it offers the cannabis user remains the same since those times. What is it that hashish offers? Well, that is a rich and complex conversation. It is also a conversation that we have The Dank Duchess on  Adventures Through The Mind to have with us for this episode!

Dank Duchess HashishOakland, California-based The Dank Duchess, an internationally recognized cannabis cultivator, hashmaker, and writer. She has made it her mission to impart her knowledge of cannabis and hash to anyone who will receive it. Duchess is well-versed in cannabis bubble hashmaking, cannabis media, and cannabis culture. She journeys to cannabis-friendly locales worldwide to expand her knowledge, host educational parties and spread cannabis awareness.

The Dank Duchess is on the show to discuss hashish, from what it means and how its made to why it matters in the modern cannabis market. We also discuss the ongoing impact of cannabis prohibition on black culture in the united states; harmful trends in the modern cannabis culture; and the power of hashish (and cannabis in general) to bridge our social divides and lay foundations for a better world.
