Lipids, Fats, and Waxes in Rosin

✅ Updated 1/4/22 Lipids are a diverse group of compounds found in both plant and animal cells, providing long-term energy storage and protective insulation. Lipids are hydrocarbons composed of only two elements: hydrogen and carbon. They’re also hydrophobic, which means they are insoluble in water. Fats, oils, waxes, phospholipids, and steroids are all various types of lipids. The cannabis plant produces a variety of lipids, which make their way into rosin. Their presence comes through in the flavor

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.

How To Press Bubble Hash Rosin Starter Guide

✅ Updated 6/29/21 Bubble hash rosin is rosin that’s extracted from bubble hash. Bubble hash is a form of solventless cannabis concentrate, composed of trichome heads that are separated from the rest of the plant using ice cold water and agitation. In its earliest days, rosin was created by squishing dried and cured whole cannabis flowers between heated plates, like a hair straightener or a t-shirt press. Flower rosin is still incredibly popular today! However, as solventless techniques quickly advanced, more efficient and effective equipment was developed and different cannabis material was being pressed. Then, people started experimenting with pressing bubble hash

Why Is Pheno-Hunting Important for Rosin?

✅ Updated 12/28/20 The search for an ideal specimen of any given cannabis cultivar, or strain, is known as Pheno-hunting. The term “Pheno-hunting” comes from the word phenotype, which is the set of observable characteristics of an individual plant. These characteristics, such as bud structure, trichome production, terpene content, etc. are the result of the unique interaction between environment and genetics. While individual plants of a particular cultivar each carry the same basic genetic code, those genetics

Which Cannabis Strains Are Best for Washing Bubble Hash?

When it comes to finding the best cannabis strains for washing bubble hash, it all comes down to the trichomes. Trichomes are the tiny translucent appendages that glisten like grains of sugar on cannabis flowers, and they hold the key to the plant’s therapeutic benefits. The art of ice water extraction involves isolating, collecting, and preserving these miniscule globes. Some strains produce trichome heads that are better fit for ice water extraction than others.

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 Much Cannabis Do I Need To Make Bubble Hash

✅ Updated 6/10/21 Home Growers with a couple of cannabis plants often ask how much material they need to accumulate for a successful run of hash. It’s common to see people washing a pound or more of cannabis and pulling ounces of hash, but do you really need that much material to make your own bubble hash? What if you only have a small amount of starting material to work with? Preparing all the equipment and going through the labor-intensive process of ice water extraction takes a good amount of time and energy, so most bubble hash extractors won’t wash anything under a quarter pound (4 ounces) per run.

Caged vs Uncaged Rosin Press Plates

✅ Updated 6/21/21 One of the advantages to building your own rosin press is that it gives you the flexibility to customize an extraction setup that best fits your needs. By designing and assembling your own unique configuration, you can choose the tonnage capacity and plate size to match your expected levels of production. Another important consideration is whether you’ll install a caged or an uncaged rosin plate kit onto your press.

Hand Washing vs Machine Washing Bubble Hash

✅ Updated 6/28/21 Washing hash is the process of stirring and churning an ice water and cannabis mixture to release the plant’s trichome heads from the rest of the plant material. Turbulence and agitation in the water allow the plant’s trichomes (carriers of the therapeutic ingredients in cannabis) to separate in the icy slurry. Then, by filtering this mixture through a series of screens, or bubble bags, we can collect the trichomes which become our hash. Agitating the ice water and cannabis mixture for hash extraction can be done by hand or in a washing machine.

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.

Best Ways to Dry Bubble Hash

✅ Updated 1/13/21 When pressing rosin, ensuring the ideal moisture content in our starting material is pivotal to the quality and yield of solventless cannabis extract. We know that in the case of pressing flower, a raw flower plucked from a live plant is unworkable between the plates. The popping and hissing of moisture as it rapidly escapes the wet bud is a clear signal that conditions are unfit to extract rosin (and never to be repeated!). Just as drying cannabis flowers for rosin extraction is essential, so is properly drying bubble hash for the same purpose.
