A rosin press is a machine used to extract rosin, a type of concentrate made from cannabis or hemp. The process of making rosin involves applying heat and pressure to the plant material, which causes the trichomes (the sticky, resinous glands that contain the active compounds) to rupture and release the rosin. The rosin is then collected and can be used for various purposes such as vape, smoke, or as an ingredient in edibles.
Rosin does not require the use of solvents or substances to produce the final product. The final product is very pure, potent and smells and tastes exactly like the strain it was extracted from.
What is a rosin press?
A rosin press is a machine which use a couple of heated plates. These plates are pressed with enough pressure on any cannabis material like the kief, buds or the hash. This pressure leads to the cannabinoids and terpenes to seep out in the form of oil, known as rosin.
Rosin has lately gained popularity because of its solventless yet very easy extraction process. With the help of micron filtration bags, rosin can be achieved in a matter of minutes with a rosin press.
What are the types of rosin press?
There are multiple forms of rosin presses available on the market.
Manual rosin press
People generally love using this simple, hand-crank and hand-powered rosin press. This requires absolutely nothing but elbow grease to produce the rosin. Manual rosins are operated using the pull-down levers or using the twist-style levers. These are used to apply pressure onto the plates as you go on pressing.
Hydraulic rosin press
These presses are made up of the hydraulic cylinders to produce pressing force that is needed to make the rosin. When working with more material, sufficient pressure is required to achieve the highest yields.
Variable hydraulic rosin press
These rosin presses are powered by hydraulic cylinders and they are typically larger in size and offer more pressure. An external foot pump typically controls the pressure, which is connected to an air compressor.
Electric rosin press
These are new to the market but are getting readily accepted due to their efficient functioning. They do not need any external pumps or compressors to function. An electrical outlet is enough to kickstart the extraction.
