DIY concentrate creation is on the rise in the cannabis community. This is all thanks to the growing popularity of rosin presses. A rosin press is a machine that allows you to apply heat and pressure directly to your bud, extracting the essential oils on the cannabis. This is referred to as rosin, and is completely solventless, clean and ready for consumption.
After a nug is pressed by the two plates, you simply (and carefully) unwrap the filter, remove the smashed plant material and you are left with a solventless, potent oil, ready to dab on!
The extreme temperature is what makes the most important part, (the concentrated THC and other oils of cannabis) run from the nug. Applying the extreme pressure ensures that all oil possible was extracted. Rosin press machines are truly revolutionizing how dabbers choose to consume cannabis.
When dabbing on rosin, you don’t need to worry about added potency or chemicals from any foreign solvents. You know EXACTLY what you are smoking on. So not only is rosin pressing extremely safe for consumption, but it is the most concentrated and pure form of THC that you can produce.
Here is one in action:
There are a plethora of rosin presses online, but only some companies have experience and a reputation unlike no other. Finding a good rosin press for sale can get a little confusing. When shopping for the best rosin press, you are looking for a long-lasting, durable press at a reasonable price. Dabbing Pro reviewed some of the most well-known presses to provide you with all the details and information you need to make an informed decision.
