To help our readers become more familiar with rosin, we've compiled the Top 7 Benefits of Rosin.
What is Rosin?
Rosin refers to an extraction process that utilizes a combination of heat and pressure to nearly instantaneously squeeze resinous sap from your initial starting material - cannabis or hemp. The result is a translucent, sappy, and sometimes shatter-like product. Rosin can rival the flavor, potency, and yield of other solvent-based extraction products.
1) Rosin Contains Zero Residual Solvents
While rosin looks nearly identical to other cannabis concentrations like BHO, there is one huge difference. Rosin is completely solventless. Unlike BHO (butane hash oil), rosin does not require a solvent. Which means there’s zero risk of residuals in the end product.
The result is pure and organic
Butane is extremely harsh on the human body and the environment. Rosin produces a completely clean, potent product when extracted properly. In fact, rosin is comparable to BHO in potency.
For patients/consumers who desire or require clean, solventless concentrates, rosin is the best solution.
2) Rosin is Safer to Produce
Extreme precautions must be taken when producing butane extractions.
Butane is highly flammable and susceptible to explosion. It is an extremely volatile substance.
Unfortunately, a large number of accidents have occurred from people trying to produce extracts with solvents like butane. Granted, many of these accidents were caused by amateurs who did not follow safe extraction methods.
Nevertheless, making concentrations from butane is risky business. Even when handled with the utmost care, butane still poses considerable dangers. Serious harm or even death can occur.
Rosin completely avoids these risks.
3) Rosin is Simple to Make
ROSINBOMB presses are simple to operate and produce clean, full flavor, high potency rosin in just minutes.
The mechanics are relatively basic. Rosin presses apply heat and pressure. This process liquefies the plant's essential oils into a sticky wax.
The process of making rosin is incredibly efficient. In a single day you can produce a significant quantity of high-quality concentrates.
For new labs or caregivers, rosin production has a massive advantage over closed-loop systems, which can take months, or even years to get up and running and require significant time and expense to operate.
4) Rosin Offers Higher Potency
Rosin is highly concentrated.
Some reports indicate rosin can have 50 to 70 percent THC content. Flower, on the other hand, normally comes in around 25-30%. The effects of rosin are therefore much stronger.
The rich cannabinoid and terpene content of rosin make it a popular choice among consumers & patients. Less product is needed for the same desired effects.
Pure and potent, rosin is economical and practical. It is also a cleaner option when processed properly because there are no additives.
5) Rosin is Less Expensive to Produce
The cost producing solvent-based extractions is shockingly expensive.
According to High Times, assembling a closed loop extraction set up can run between $100,000-200,000 or more. Manufactures will have to incur tremendous additional expense to operate and maintain such a system.
On the other hand, our ROSINBOMB Rocket press is only $599 which delivers you significant cost savings and reduces the risks and hazards associated with a closed loop system.
6) Rosin is Extremely Versatile
Hands down, rosin is one of the most versatile cannabis extracts.
In fact, with rosin you can make crumble, wax, budder, shatter, sugar, and more. This is huge! Rosin enables you to make your favorite concentrates completely solvent-free.
The versatility of rosin is astounding.
It can be incorporated into just about every cannabis product you can imagine including edibles, topicals, and salves.
Rosin can also be consumed immediately. You can dab, vape, or add rosin to a joint or bowl right after making it. No additional processing is necessary.
You can also blend rosins together to produce a customized final product whereby you have greater control over flavor and THC/CBD levels.
The adaptability of rosin is a big benefit for cannabis consumers and producers.
7) Rosin is Fast Acting
Rosin is beneficial for consumers/patients who desire or need fast acting powerful doses of cannabis medicine.
Rosin is a concentrated form of cannabis, which is rich with cannabinoids such as THC and CBD.
A single dab of rosin provides a large dose of cannabinoids quickly. You would need to smoke 3 to 4 times the amount to get the same quantity of cannabinoids as dabbing rosin.
With rosin, a little bit goes a long way. The strong effects take hold swiftly so it’s best to dose a small amount at a time.
