What is Rosin?

If you’re a cannabis enthusiast, you may have heard of rosin – an increasingly popular cannabis concentrate. In this post, we’ll explore what rosin is, how rosin is made, and the benefits of rosin-infused edibles.

Rosin is a cannabis concentrate made from high quality cannabis flower using just heat and pressure, without the use of chemical solvents. The simple extraction method preserves all the beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, resulting in a more potent and full-bodied experience compared to traditional extracts.

How Rosin is Made

Rosin extraction is a fascinating process that requires only two things: heat and pressure. Our hash rosin starts with bubble hash, a simple concentrate extracted from cold water and agitated cannabis flower. Next, the hash is pressed between the two plates of a rosin press machine, just like a giant flat iron. As the press closes on the hash and heat and pressure build up, the trichomes (those glittery crystals that are packed with cannabinoids and terpenes) burst open, releasing a rich, resinous sap.

Rosin vs Distillate

Rosin, a solventless cannabis concentrate produced using only heat and pressure, differs from traditional cannabis extracts made with hydrocarbon solvents. This simple extraction method preserves all the beneficial compounds found in the cannabis plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, which work together to create the entourage effect and enhance the overall experience.

Rosin vs Resin

Resin is another type of cannabis extract that is extracted using chemical solvents. In contrast, rosin is extracted using just heat and pressure, making it a more natural and solventless concentrate.

Rosin Edibles vs Regular Edibles

Rosin-infused edibles offer a more potent and full-bodied experience compared to regular edibles. Because rosin is a full-spectrum concentrate, it contains all the beneficial compounds of the cannabis plant. We are so excited to be able to offer solventless rosin-infused chocolate, Sugar-Coated Pearls, Mega Pearls, and Pips starting in Oregon!

Final Thoughts on the Benefits of Rosin

In conclusion, rosin’s simple extraction process yields a potent, complex cannabis concentrate. The solventless extraction method allows for the natural preservation of the cannabis plant’s beneficial compounds, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. This results in a more flavorful and potent concentrate. Compared to other cannabis extracts, rosin’s unique extraction process allows for a more complete expression of the plant’s properties.
