i've heard that many artists actually sand down canson (smooth side) and use this as their ground. Has anyone heard of this and how is it done?:D

Yep, you can do that. Use a fine grit sanding block and lightly abrade the paper so that the soft nap raises. It doesn't want too much rubbing, of course. You can do it on either side and the textures are a little different. Try it and tell us how you like it!
