RIP Frenchy Cannoli


Elite Hobbyist
The guy taught me how to make hash...on videos.

I love listening to his passion...and a master hashishist.


From Madame Cannoli, Kimberly, Frenchy's wife⁠
⁠Dear Friends and Loved Ones,⁠
⁠It's with profound, heartbreaking grief that I share with you due to complications from surgery Frenchy left us on Sunday. ⁠I'm sorry I couldn't share this with you in person. This seemed like the best way to let you know directly from me. ⁠

Frenchy often shared there were 3 main periods in his life - first, the 18-year timeframe from when he left home in Southern France to travel, wandering the world, enamored of new cultures & experiences, then the period of fatherhood from his mid-30s to early 50s, and then finally the period of becoming the teacher that followed when he came to the states in the 2000s. I cannot begin to express how much meaning and joy his interactions with all of you brought him. He truly cherished this unexpected evolution of the latter part of his life.⁠

His passing was unexpected and leaves his family with a gaping hole of emotion where his smile and energy usually filled us so completely. I think what we all appreciated about Frenchy so much was his authenticity and passion. It would give me great solace to see his face lit up with a smile right now. If you have a smiley photo with Frenchy and want to tell me about your connection/meeting with him I would be honored if you would share it with us.

Fucking truamatized. Frenchy was the shit! One of the coolest cats I personally have ever met and talked weed with. Smoked my first piece of temple ball style hash with him lighting it. This is truly a great loss for the community, thankfully he lived at a time when much of his amazing knowledge has been shared, documented, and archived so not to be lost. RIP Frenchy you will be greatly missed.
Found out about this early this morning and couldn't believe the news. I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person but we messaged each other on IG a handful of times and he always replied to my questions Iike we were longtime friends. I'm willing to bet he treated everyone he met that way and I wish I could learn to be that way with everyone I meet.

Frenchy Cannoli's Lost Art of the Hashishin

Cami Cannoli · 2m ·

From Madame Cannoli - We have an IT genius who is helping me with the celebration of life today for Frenchy today (Aug. 15th). He's convinced me that YouTube will be more convenient for many of you to view the proceedings. So, you can also see the Livestream on as well as FB or IG. You choose.
Remember, for those who just want to participate in the Sesh in Frenchy's honor that will start around 12:30 pm California time. We're going to try and pass the smoke around the world starting with La Kalada in Bacelona. Here's the basic flow we're aiming for.
La Kalada will pass the smoke to Mila in Amsterdam, and so on until it reaches us in California. Let's hot box the heavens a little for Frenchy today.
