What is Rosin?
Rosin is a Cannabis Concentrate made without the use of external solvents. Instead, it is produced through a combination of heat and pressure. This combination forces the compounds containing the trichome gland out of the Cannabis plant. It is in these glands that you will find all of the delicious cannabinoids and terpenes that give Rosin its signature flavour.
The extraction process doesn’t employ any harsh chemicals or solvents. As a result, not only is Rosin considered safer to consume, but the process of extraction is considered safer as well. This process serves as an alternative to closed-loop extraction, and is also used in the collection of essential oils.
Rosin comes in a variety of colours and consistencies, dictated by the amount of heat and pressure used during extraction. It is commonly made into Shatter and Wax, but also is widely available as Budder, Badder or Batter.
History of Rosin
Rosin was first introduced back in 2006, but it didn’t gain widespread fame until 2015. It was then that Phil Salazar was taking photos and posting them online while pressing some lower quality Hash.
While pressing the Hash, Salazar noticed resin had begun seeping out of the side, leaving the original product dried and unusable. Salazar quickly tried replicating the process, pressing hash between pieces of wax paper with the flat iron on his wife’s hair straightener. Once he ran out of Hash, Salazar switched to Cannabis Flower with the same results. The newly created oil became known as Rosin.
Rosin production has come a long way since 2013, now being made on a much bigger scale. Modern processes commonly use large screens and industrial presses.
