How does cannabis rosin compare to other forms of cannabis concentrates? Propane Hash Oil (PHO) may be less popular, but Butane Hash Oil (BHO) is arguably the single most popular form of creating cannabis concentrate. Solvent-less cannabis concentrates such as dry sift and bubble hash are also still relevant in the consumer market. It may be hard for people investigating concentrates for the first time to tell the difference, especially when it comes to weighing the benefits.
Using a rosin press creates a product that rivals the purity of the finest grades of both dry sift and bubble hash. However, rosin can be vaporized (or “dabbed”), which hash is far less likely to do safely. Rosin is actually more pure than concentrates produced by the use of solvents. Alcohol, propane, and butane extract the trichomes, but trace elements of those solvents will always make their way into the final product. Cannabis rosin is made by gently heating and compressing cannabis; thus, it lacks the residue left behind.
For good reason, cannabis rosin and rosin presses have been gaining popularity in the cannabis industry in recent years. Cannabis consumers are also following suit. Fortunately for them, one truly excellent tool for creating rosin at home is the Juice Box Handheld Rosin Press. This is a compact rosin press specifically designed for making cannabis rosin at home or on the go. The unique design prevents the plates from burning the terpenes while also directing the flow of the rosin. Furthermore, the gradual heating of the two metal plates guarantees the maximum possible yield without the need to press your cannabis a second or third time. Thus, the Juice Box handheld rosin press is both efficient and affordable!
If you are willing to spend over a couple hundred dollars and plan to produce rosin on a large scale or need 10+ grams of rosin a month a table top rosin press would be a good choice. Table top presses often have plates recommend to press 1/4 to 1/2 ounce of material at a time for the best results. The temperature control allows for a more precise temperature but always requires a 2nd or 3rd press.
