Rosin: a cleaner concentrate
Welcome to Concentrates 101! This week, we are spotlighting Rosin! Continue reading to learn how it’s made, how you can consume, and even products we suggest if you decide to try it for yourself!
What is Rosin?
Unlike Live Resin, Rosin is completely solventless and is extracted by using heat and pressure. There are a few different types of Rosin, such as Live Rosin or Hash Rosin; all are made the same way, just with different contents. Typically, Rosin is made from flower, shake or trim; while Live Rosin is made with frozen plants and Hash Rosin with bubble or dry hash. Rosin is a full-spectrum concentrate and tends to be more flavorful, pure and terpene rich versus others that use butane and solvents, which make it a very popular choice. When looking for a great Rosin, typically keep an eye out for a “clean” look, being lighter then Live Resin or a tan color. The smell and taste should also be very flavorful. Ask a budtender which Rosin is right for you!
How to Consume
Rosin can be used as a way to bring instant relief or if you prefer a quicker onset of effects. It is typically for individuals who love to dab, or just like a high terpene profile! But there are more ways to enjoy this concentrate. First, you will need a dabbing tool in order to handle most concentrates. If dabbing is your style or you always wanted to try this method, a rig and torch will be needed to consume. You may also want to try placing the Rosin in a dab pen, which is essentially a vape rig. Some great brands we recommend are Dazed, Gas Station, or Strait Fire! Rolling it up with your flower to add that extra “kick” is also a method people love, but experiment first before trying this method. Lastly, there are many different disposable vapes that provide a lot more convenience.
