Cannabis Strain of the Week: Rosin

What is Rosin?

Rosin refers to a removal process that utilizes a blend of heat and pressure to push and force resinous sap from your cannabis material. The term “rosin” actually originated as a method of making a product used to lubricate violin bows. With cannabis, this method is very versatile and can be used with flowers or to utilize hash and kief into a full-melt hash oil. The result is a translucent, sappy, and sometimes shatter-like product. If created correctly, rosin can challenge the flavor, potency, and yield of other solvent-based extraction products.

How to Make Rosin

Materials Needed for At Home Rosin

  1. Hair Straightener (try to find one with a low setting of around 300 degrees Fahrenheit or lower to avoid burning off valuable terpenes.
  2. Cannabis buds, sativa, indica, or hybrid is up to you!
  3. Parchment Paper (unbleached, if possible)
  4. Collection Tool or scraper to collect cannabis
  5. Heat-Resistant Gloves for Safety

How to Make Rosin in 4 Simple Steps

STEP 1: Turn on your hair straightener to the lowest setting (280-330F) and cut yourself a small 4×4” piece of parchment paper. Now fold it in half and place your material in between the folded parchment paper before giving it a light preliminary finger press.

STEP 2: Carefully line the buds inside of the paper together with your hair straightener and apply a very firm pressure for about 3-7 seconds. You will want to hear a sizzle before you remove the pressures — it indicates that the resin has melted from the plant material.

STEP 3: Remove your sample from the hot surface and unfold the parchment paper. Now pluck the flattened nug away and grab your collection tool. This is a very sticky process so be patient and careful. For larger batches, use different clean sheets of parchment and collect your samples together at the end.

(OPTIONAL) STEP 4: Remove any visible plant material if you wish. Fold the finished product between the parchment and flatten it to your preference. Then use a clean tool to pick out any plant particulates. You may place the substance on a cold surface for a few seconds if you desire a more stable material to work with.

Now load a nice fat dab of your fresh new rosin and celebrate! You just became an extract artist!
