How to Decarb Cannabis

Decarbing cannabis involves the process of decarboxylation, which is a naturally occurring chemical reaction made possible with heat over time. Decarboxylation impacts cannabis by converting its beneficial compounds from their acidic form into a non-acidic form (e.g. from THC-A to THC). This transformation unlocks the full extent of the cannabinoids’ therapeutic value, most especially in regards to psychoactivity. Decarbing cannabis lets us enjoy the effects we most fondly associate with cannabis consumption.

Hydraulic vs Pneumatic Rosin Presses

Hydraulic Rosin Presses and Pneumatic Rosin Presses are both common in rosin extraction, and equally capable of producing premium quality rosin. But what sets them apart, and how do they actually work? Both hydraulic and pneumatic presses operate on the same basic principles. Pressure is generated within the press itself, and applied as force through a driving ram into the rosin plates. In the squeezing together of the rosin plates, pressure is generated within the cannabis source material. This pressure combines with heat from the plates to create the outflow of rosin, the prize of our endeavors.

How To Make Live Rosin

✅ Updated 10/28/21 Live Rosin is a premium form of Hash Rosin with specific origins. Unlike traditional hash rosin, Live Rosin is extracted from bubble hash that’s been made with Fresh Frozen Cannabis. Live rosins have quickly moved from the fringes of solventless menus to now becoming the mainstay of hash rosins. And this is for good reason. To understand the value of Live Rosin, we need to understand the meaning of Fresh Frozen and why it creates a truly exceptional solventless product. refers to cannabis material that’s been frozen immediately after harvest.

Rosin Press Temperature Guide

Heat is one of the key ingredients that makes pressing rosin possible. While pressure is needed to amplify the flow of rosin between heated rosin plates, it’s the heat generated between your rosin plates that allow cannabis trichomes to liquefy in a way that we can isolate them for collection. An understanding of ideal temperature ranges, and the ability to control the temperature within those ranges during extraction, are must-haves in the extractor’s toolkit. The right amount of heat needed to press quality rosin

Hot Pressing vs Cold Pressing Rosin

Heat is one of the key ingredients that makes pressing rosin possible. While pressure is also needed to promote the flow of rosin between heated rosin plates, it’s the high temperatures that allow cannabis trichomes to liquefy in a way that we can isolate them for collection. An understanding of ideal temperature ranges, and ability to control the temperature within those ranges during extraction, are must-haves in the extractor’s toolkit. The right amount of heat needed to press quality rosin depends largely on the type of source material being pressed.

Top 5 Rosin Pressing Tips For Flower

✅ Updated 8/15/21 Hours of experimentation lead to lots of valuable insights when you’re pressing flower rosin. We’ve captured a few of our favorites here. The quality of rosin you collect is determined primarily by the quality of the flower you’re pressing. Given that your press is dialed-in, any shortcomings in your rosin can most likely be traced back to shortcomings in your flower. The importance of excellent material can’t be understated if your goal is truly connoisseur rosin.

3 Reasons Why You Need A Pre Press Mold

Pre-pressing cannabis material prior to rosin extraction provides multiple benefits to extractors. Pre-pressing is a simple and effective way to prepare flower, dry sift, or bubble within a filter bag to create consistent and even rosin flow from the material during extraction. The process of pre-pressing cannabis is straightforward. Using specially-designed rectangular aluminum molds (or cylindrical molds if you’re pressing Bottle Tech), loaded filter bags are hand-pressed within a mold just before extraction. After the filter bag is filled with material, use your fingers to compact the material inside the bag tightly and evenly.

What Is Nucleation in Rosin?

Have you ever seen clear, smooth, oily rosin transform into a seemingly sugar-filled, clumpy, and inconsistent substance? This change in appearance is due to nucleation, and it’s a relatively common occurrence in rosin. But what is nucleation, and how does it impact the quality of your rosin? Read on to find out. What is nucleation? Nucleation is simply a phase change in which crystalline formations occur in a liquid.

How to Rehydrate Dry Cannabis Flower For Rosin Pressing

✅ Updated 6/10/21 Effectively extracting quality rosin from cannabis flowers isn’t possible without the correct moisture content and humidity levels. Flowers grown in an ideal environment from good genetics can’t fully transform into exceptional rosin if they’re too dry during extraction. Excessive dryness in cannabis flowers causes decreased rosin yields, as bone-dry bud reabsorbs much of the rosin as it flows through the rosin bag. This reabsorption rate is significantly lower in flowers that contain the right amount of moisture, giving every extractor good reason to maintain correct moisture in their starting material.

How To Take Notes To Improve Your Rosin Production

The mechanics of pressing rosin are straightforward. With the application of heat and pressure, solventless extractors release the oils contained within cannabis to create a pure and potent form of concentrate known as rosin. Although the overall approach to pressing rosin is simple, many variables exist in the actual process, any of which can have a direct impact on the quantity and quality of your rosin yield. Over time and with experience, extractors gain a better understanding of how to control variables such as time, temperature, and pressure when pressing rosin.

How To Press Bottle Tech

Bottle Tech refers to a specific style of filling rosin bags and loading them into the press, so that the material takes the shape of a vertical cylinder rather than a flat rectangle. With a fundamental change in the shape of source material, bottle Tech gives the extractor greater control over bag pressure for more consistent results. Why use Bottle Tech to Press Rosin? If you’re pressing flower, especially if you work with the same cultivars on a regular basis, Bottle Tech allows you to more accurately dial-in your pressure application for repeatable and predictable results.
