Discuss _Heart of Dankness_ by Mark Haskell Smith

From Amazon: Reporting for the Los Angeles Times on the international blind tasting competition held annually in Amsterdam known as the Cannabis Cup, novelist Mark Haskell Smith sampled a variety of marijuana that was unlike anything he’d experienced. It wasn’t anything like typical stoner weed, in fact it didn’t get you stoned. This cannabis possessed an ephemeral quality known to aficionados as “dankness.”


Armed with a State of California Medical Marijuana recommendation, he begins a journey into the international underground where super-high-grade marijuana is developed and tracks down the rag-tag community of underground botanists, outlaw farmers, and renegade strain hunters who pursue excellence and diversity in marijuana, defying the law to find new flavors, tastes, and effects. This unrelenting pursuit of dankness climaxes at the Cannabis Cup, which Haskell Smith vividly portrays as the Super Bowl/Mardi Gras of the world's largest cash crop.

    Hey Melinda. Well, I've never put it to vote, but I personally have little interest in astrology, auras, crystals, and the like. However, if you suggested a good one that seemed to fit the tenor of the other books, I'd potentially be interested. I'm sure this two-sided response is all just what a Gemini would say.

      Hey guys, It is okay no worries, I don't expect anyone to understand what my science is about, it is very new, it really isn't new it has been around for thousands of years more along the time when knowledge was born and who knows really when that really transpired. I had written an earlier email and realized I wrote something that was completely confusing as my grandchildren are running around screaming.

    Nice three hour discussion on the book and the meaning of dankness more generally in our lives.

    Hello, I have many questions to ask to seek knowledge of the benefits of cannabis and it's ability to cure so many diseases. I am not able to make it to the meeting on such short notice. But, I will attend the next meet up :). Does this group study the other reality besides the 3d one? Just wondering, it sounded as though you guys do. Thanks so very much.
