Written By: Daniel Cina 

There are so many forms of sticky icky amazing cannabis in this wide world to try it can make your head spin. Well today we are here to talk about another amazing form of cannabis to enjoy! Currently one of the most high quality and sought after products on the market, its time to talk about rosin!

What is Rosin Rosin

It is a type of cannabis concentrate that is produced through a process called “rosin pressing.” This process involves applying heat and pressure to cannabis flowers or trim, in order to extract this  sticky, resinous substance. 

The process of making it is relatively simple. The cannabis material is placed between two heated plates, and pressure is applied to the material to extract the rosin. The rosin is then collected and after rigorous lab testing (like every product in our stores) it is ready for use! 

One of the key benefits is that it is made using only heat and pressure, which means that it is a solvent-less concentrate. For some this is an amazing choice should you want to avoid a BHO pressed concentrate. I am not knocking the Butane Hash Oil extraction process because many fantastic concentrates are BHO pressed, but it does use chemicals and flammable materials to generate. Some people prefer more natural forms of cannabis, and rosin is an excellent choice for that as it is made only using the natural compounds of the cannabis plant.

It is also considered a high-quality concentrate, as it is made from the finest cannabis flowers. It is typically made from cannabis flowers that are high in terpenes and cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN, and even CBG, which means that it is more complex, more potent, and more flavorful than your standard concentrates. This makes it a popular choice among cannabis connoisseurs who are looking for a very high-quality, and naturally produced concentrate. AVO Cannabis Farms in Oregon

Attributes and Uses of Rosin 

In terms of appearance, it can vary in color, consistency, and texture. The color can range from light amber to dark brown, and the consistency can range from a sticky and gooey to a more solid and brittle. The texture can also vary, from a smooth and creamy to a more gritty and sandy.

Another benefit of rosin is that it is versatile. It can be consumed in a variety of ways, such as being dabbing. It can also be used in the kitchen as an ingredient in edibles, which can provide a unique and effective way to enjoy your elevation. 

Cannabis rosin is also known for its high THC content, which can reach up to 90%. This means that it is one of the most potent forms of cannabis concentrate, making it ideal for those looking for a strong, fast-acting effect. However, it is important to keep in mind that cannabis rosin can also be high in CBD, which can provide a more balanced effect.
