Last fall Farmer Tom had a chance to take an international trip to Spain to participate in Spannabis. I have a long history with one of the private cannabis social clubs in Barcelona, Greenardos. I first met them when they stayed with us on the farm for about a month, four years ago. During their visit, they got ahold of one of my seeds — a cross between Amnesia Haze and our Power Kush– and it turned out to be an amazing phenotype. The club has carried it at their location for the last three years, and it has been one of their top strains.
Spannabis was a blast. I got to connect with cannabis enthusiast’s from around the world – all the top players were there. During my stay in Barcelona, I was warmly welcomed — not just because my strain had won many competitions throughout Europe — the locals are just genuinely very nice, gracious people.
One of the highlights of my trip was seeing BC Barcelona play football. We watched them win, and Messi score the winning goal. I spent a day making high quality solvent-less hash with the Dank Duchess and Blue Eyes. I learned a lot and had a wonderful experience with these great people. The best thing about Spain was the food. I had some of the most amazing, high quality food I’ve ever eaten. From the seafood — fresh from the Mediterranean Seat and North Atlantic — to the fresh fruits and veggies. My favorite was Hamon — a kind of ham made 100% from Ibérico pigs who are allowed to feed and roam completely free range. The stuff you live for.
After Spannabis I spent a day touring LaRambla, where we stopped by Weedmaps Spanish headquarters, and also went to visit Sensi magazine’s Cannabis and Hash Museum. I was warmly welcomed at both locations. We sat on the roof and smoked fatties at Weedmaps, and I got a personal tour of the cannabis museum by the curator and manager – it was quite an experience.
