What Is Rosin?

Rosin is an intense marijuana extract that packs a powerful punch.

Although it can be made at home, many customers prefer to buy it in the store for convenience.

This product works like other similar ways to get high, such as shatter and dabs, which are highly concentrated. With rosin, a little goes a long way.

Unlike dabs and shatter, you don’t need a solvent for rosin creation. It’s easy to make rosin, even if you don’t have a lot of space or materials.

Why Customers Love Rosin

Cannabis customers are always into the newest and most exciting ways to get high. Many people may not have tried rosin before, and will be interested simply because it’s something new.

Those who have had success with dabs and shatter might love these concentrated forms. Thus, they’re more likely to try another type of concentrated cannabis.

Also, rosin also doesn’t use solvents, so it doesn’t have the chemicals that these products come with.

It looks a lot like other materials made with solvents, but it’s safer, more natural, and just as potent. Let’s take a look at how to make rosin to sell.

How to Make Rosin: The Basics

There are a few different ways to make quality rosin. It all comes down to your preferences.

Base Material

Rosin can be made using different parts of the cannabis plant, including the trim and buds.

Your methodology will need to change a bit depending on which parts of the plant you use. That’s because different parts of the plant have different THC concentrations.

Choosing your base material is the first step. If you use the trim, you’ll need a lot of it to get the same concentration of THC as if you use buds, for example.

Heat Source

Next, you’ll need a heat source to make your concentrate, such as a rosin press.

Extra heat has an interesting effect on marijuana. There is less oxygen when heat is applied, so the cannabinoids can have a different effect on the brain.

If you’ve smoked resin from a pipe before, you may have noticed this effect. Smoking resin tends to have a more relaxing effect, no matter what strain the weed was.

That’s because when marijuana is exposed to enough heat and oxygen to become resin, some of the THC is turned into CBN.

CBN, or cannabinol, has less of a psychotropic effect and acts more like a muscle relaxer.

When heat is added to cannabis, the plant loses its distinctive taste and smell. That’s why concentrates may not smell or taste like “weed” in the conventional sense.

Learning how to make rosin takes practice, so keep experimenting until you have the perfect product to sell.

How to Prepare Rosin

There are a few different ways to make rosin using this combination of raw material and heat. You’ll get a different yield depending on the method and the base material.

Rosin Making: Basic Method

First, let’s look at the most basic method for making rosin. You will need the following:

  • T-shirt press or another heat source
  • Parchment paper
  • Dabber, blade, or another tool for collection
  • Base material

1. Prepare the Heat

Set your press to about 200-320 degrees. Try different temperatures for different results.

You’ll notice changes in potency, flavor, and texture at different temperatures. By experimenting, you’ll learn how to make rosin that your customers love.

2. Prepare the Paper

Cut a piece of parchment paper that’s longer than it is wide – try 4 by 8 inches to start with. Make sure the paper is wide enough so you don’t lose your base material while heating it.

When making rosin in bulk, you may want to cut multiple strips of paper at a time to speed up the process.

Put the greens in the paper. Spread them evenly but don’t get too close to the edges where they will fall out. Fold the paper over to completely cover the greens.

3. Apply Heat

Use the press to apply pressure to the parchment paper for about five seconds.

If you apply too much heat, all the THC will convert into CBN, which isn’t desirable, so be careful.

4. Repeat

Let the marijuana cool, then repeat step three.

Now, you can throw away your base material, saving the resin that’s been left behind on the paper. If you have other uses for the old greens, you can also save them.

Consider putting the parchment paper in the freezer for a while, since this makes it easier to scrape the resin off.

5. Collect Rosin

Now, use the blade or other collection tools to scrape the resin (or rosin) from the paper.

This simple method can easily yield good-quality rosin.
