Best Strains For High Rosin Yields

Best Strains pressing into Rosin

When it comes to rosin one thing to note is that all rosin yields are not equal. Of course having top quality equipment, such as the Ju1ceBox rosin press, can make a huge difference, but if you want to hit big yield numbers with flower rosin you have to select the right strains.

You’ll want to focus on strains that offer massive trichome production. Another key to pressing quality rosin is how resinous your plants are in general. Remember, the more resinous it is, the more rosin you’ll yield. While indica and hybrids tend to be the best choice, some sativas are worth pressing as well.

Here are a few of each that you should consider making into rosin:

High Yielding THC Rosin Strains

GG4 (a/k/a Gorilla Glue #4)

GG4 is an incredibly popular strain for cannabis users of all ingestion methods.

Many rosin pressers love its high potency and copious trichomes that make its flower look covered in permafrost.

With a high THC content, this may not be the best dab to end a night since many varieties can be stimulating, but it does tend to be suitable for any other occasion.

Papaya and its Crosses

Papaya is a potent strain known for its disease resistance and early maturation. It's also beloved for being a powerful indica dominant hybrid that's excellent for cross breeding.

The top crossbred strains are worthy candidates for water processed hash -- with some of the best washes and rosin coming from Kennnwall, along with many amazing crosses originating from Oni Seed Co.

Papaya fans cite its rich terpenes that fill the nose with fruit, mainly mango. Additional benefits of Papaya and many of its crosses include quick and long-lasting effects that typically bring joy while keeping a certain level of focus.

The White and its Crossed Strains

An indica dominant hybrid, The White is not part of the White Widow family but instead named for the color of its buds.

The white's name is the prime reason why rosin pressers love this strain. Its abundant, plentiful trichomes are perfect for pressing rivers of rosin.

The White’s beginnings are slightly unclear. However, what isn’t is its potency. Users are sure to enjoy the almost immediate impact of a White hit.

Those looking for quick, lasting pain relief should consider this strain for pressing. However, its terpene profile isn't its strongest trait.

As mentioned with GG4, if you're looking for a yield with noticeable terpenes, this strain might not be your top choice. If that is your preference, other OGs might fit your wants a bit more.

Some strains to also consider:

The chem lineage such as Chemdawg, Chem Valley Kush, Chemdawg and Sour Diesel. Any linage with Cookies or GG4 tends to have 20%+ rosin yields
