You may have heard of rosin recently! It is easy to make, full of terpenes and THC. No chemicals are used to make it, so it offers one of the cleanest forms of cannabis extracts. In this guide, we will teach you how to make rosin easily at home. Using simple household items, you can make your own rosin, and try it out before the end of the day!

Rosin can be used for "dabbing", edibles, or even used for THC E juice for your vape. But what is rosin, and why is it becoming so popular in the cannabis community?

What is Rosin

There are many ways to extract the active ingredients from your cannabis flowers. Each way will produce a different form of extract. Rosin is made by applying pressure and heat to a cannabis flower. It differs from many other ways of making cannabis extract because it involves no chemicals.

By heating and compressing the flowers, the cannabis resins will be forced out of the buds. This will produce an amber, sap like liquid. This is rosin.

Smoking rosin can bring you a rich flavour from your favourite cannabis strain. It is clean, solvent free, and can be used in many ways.

The rise in the use of rosins are not just down to its taste and cleanliness. By using easily accessible items, you can make rosin, at home, easily!

Here is a list of the items you will need to make rosin easily at home. You may already have some of these items in the house. You might have to go and buy them. Either way, they are cheap, and will produce high quality homemade rosin.

If you have any questions about making rosin, then feel free to ask for help in our cannabis growers forum

What You Need to Make Rosin

As mentioned above, to make rosin, you need heat, and pressure. There are two good options for you here. One will be a cheap alternative, but will do the job fine. If you are thinking of moving to rosin for your main cannabis intake, then a proper rosin press might be a good option for you.

Using Hair Straighteners to Make Rosin

Hair straighteners are a good cheap alternative to a rosin press. But you will have to be cautious of what model you choose. Pick a model that has temperature control. If temperatures exceed 160c (320f), you could damage the terpenes in the rosin and effect the flavour and quality.

These hair straighteners have wide plates, so you will be able to press more cannabis into rosin in one sitting. You can buy them now by clicking the image to the left. Be careful when using hair straighteners to make rosin, they will become very hot. We recommend you wear some heat resistant gloves whilst pressing the flowers.

Rosin Presses

A rosin press is designed specifically for making rosin. A proper rosin press will cost no more than the average price of an ounce of street weed. A real good rosin press can range into the thousands!

You will only need one for personal use, and a small model will be fine. This is the best to make rosin easily at home. It might cost a little more on the initial investment. But if you like clean, cannabis extracts, it will be worth the cost.

Using Rosin Press Bags.

These are not a necessity, but it is recommended you use them. Using Rosin press bags, will stop plant matter getting into your rosin. It will hold all of the flowers in a bag, and let the rosin escape out of the sides. It will increase your yield, and will also keep your rosin free of plant matter.

This bag is a pack of 20 rosin press bags, and will last for a while. You can also buy reusable Rosin Press Bags, buy what is best for you.

Unbleached Parchment Paper ( Greaseproof Paper)

This will be used to collect to rosin as it is extracted from the flowers. It will also stop your hot plates getting sticky from resin.

Using an unbleached parchment paper will reduce the risk of contaminants in your rosin, and keep it clean of any chemicals. Using Raws own Parchment Paper is not only cheaper than most brands, but made specifically for making homemade rosin.

What Strains are Best For Making Rosin

Choose a strain that is high in cannabinoids and has a high terpene profile. The higher the percentage of cannabinoids, the higher yield you will get out of your rosin. Try and pick a strain with over 20% THC, ( or CBD) and a strain of your favourite flavour. The rosin will really bring out the taste and high of your cannabis, so choose what you like the most.

Collecting Rosin After Making it

Rosin is very sticky, and once it has began to cool down it will be easy to collect. Use a cocktail stick, or a pin, to gently scoop up bits of rosin into a ball. You can then use this ball to stick the rest of the rosin to, until the parchment paper is clean.

Make Rosin Easily at Home

Now you have al the items you need to make rosin easily at home! The process of making it is very simple. By following these steps, you can have your own homemade rosin in ten minutes!

You will be dealing with high temperatures. Wear heat resistant gloves as a precaution.

Place your Cannabis into Rosin Press Bags

The amount of cannabis you use to make your rosin will depend on the size of your plates on the hair straighteners/ rosin press. Do not overfill the bag, and make sure no plant matter hangs over the side of the plates.

With hair straighteners, 1g at a time should be fine. If you're using a rosin press, then anything up to 7 grams at a time will work better for you.

If you're not using a bag, just place a bud in the middle of the hot plates. It will be a little more messy, but the outcome will be the same result.

Using Parchment Paper to Catch Rosin

The Parchment paper is used to catch the rosin as it is extracted from the flowers. Fold the paper in half, or use two sheets, and place the bag of flower between the paper, and place into between the heated plates of the press.

Fold one more line on the lower part of the paper, this will form a gutter, to catch the rosin and avoid spilling it over the edge.

Temperatures for Heat Press for Making Rosin

Setting your heat plates to the right temperature matters. You can make 2 kinds of rosin depending on the temperature you press your flowers at:

  • Press at around 135c ( 275f) for a firmer rosin, similar to shatter.
  • Press at around 155c ( 310f) for a more vicious rosin, like sap.

Choose which rosin you will make, and then set your heat pads to the required temperature. When the pads have reached the desired temperatures, place your bag, and paper, in between the hot plates.

Pressing Buds to Make Rosin Easily at Home

Add pressure for up to 30 seconds. Press down as hard as possible if you're using hair straighteners. Be careful not to burn yourself, and heat resistant gloves may be a good option for you.

The best pressure range for pressing rosin is between 300 and 1000 psi. You will not be able to measure this if using hair straighteners to make rosin.

To press flowers with a Rosin Press 600-1000 psi is ideal. If you're pressing kief or hash 300 and 800 psi will work great.

As the flowers are pressed and heated, the rosin will be seen dripping from the sides of the hot plates. Be careful here not to spill any, it can move quickly when it is hot, do not let it roll off your paper.

Homemade Rosin!!

There you have it, it is that easy! As long as you have the correct equipment, you can make rosin easily at home. You have just made some of the cleanest cannabis extracts you have ever tried! Now you can try dabbing, which is a massive new craze in the smoking community.

All you have to do is collect the rosin off the paper, and use it whichever way you prefer. Rosin can be used to make THC E Juice, so you can vape cannabis anytime, without letting off a distinctive cannabis smoking aroma.

Ohh wow, the recipe seems a lil bit difficult but also good in taste. I never ever tried these things to make at home, I mostly buy my all vape stuff from ECig-City coupon code, but I will try it soon at home. 

Let us know how you do it mate Smile it's always good to have different opinions

Hey guys,

Has anyone used Rosin medicinally? Would it have the same affect as RSO on cancer/ other health issues?

Interested to hear everyones feedback I like the idea of not using chemicals to extract!

Thanks,

Megan

I never heard of Rosin and dabbing before I started this grow my own idea. 

I know about extraction using alcohol or butane gas but I like the Rosin idea a lot more. 

Can you smoke it in joints mixed with tobacco as well?

@doctor-x This is the one my wife got for me off Amazon

https://www.amazon.com/CNCEST-500-600W-Stamping-Extraction-Granules/dp/B08JLDSB45/ref=sr_1_15?dchild=1&keywords=rosin+press&qid=1603618679&sr=8-15

ive been using 200f and 90 seconds  first press I get some rosin,  then I take out the pressed flower and fold it over 2x and repress  the second press delivers much more rosin than the first.

after watching some videos i have lightened up on the pressure some

Ive been working out of town so I have not been able to use it as much as i would like.

if you get a press id be interested in your results
