Art of Cannabis

The excitement I had when Rhys said, "You're educating people about extracts? I'd be happy to let you use some of my photos for that," is hard to measure. I think it speaks volumes about who he is as a person. I am incredibly grateful to incorporate his work into this project.Can we also talk about how incredible his photography is? I think the shots he composes are jaw-dropping, mouth-watering, eye-capturing beauties.

Brian is one of the nicest and most friendly people I've met in the industry. He has spent a lot of years working in cannabis extraction- he knows his stuff!. Plus, not only does he have a lot of stories to tell, but he's great at telling them.


I'm quite fortunate to know Bsteevie. He flies a little under the radar but is a wealth of knowledge for in-depth extraction chemistry. Without a doubt one of my favourite people to chat with, I have learned a lot from him.


Hashtek is a super friendly, collaboration-minded company that focuses on designing and manufacturing solventless extraction systems. Promoting education and staying connected to cannabis culture, they are one of the bright spots in the industry.


Irrazin is part of one of the coolest cannabis projects in existence- the Indian Landrace Exchange. He and his team work to preserve local genetics in the Indian Subcontinent and beyond. In the process, they also document the ethnobotany of the cannabis plant in the region, which includes hash and hash making techniques.

Landrace Genetics

Landrace Genetics works to collect and preserve wild cannabis and farmed cannabis in Pakistan. They also document the culture of cannabis farming and the production of hash in Pakistan in a very eye-opening way.
