What is rosin hash?
Rosin hash is the name of a new cannabis concentrate extraction method. It is a solventless hash made from trichome-rich cannabis extract. The extracted material is a dark and gooey concentrate, which can be pressed into a translucent sheet. This sheet can then be broken up into one-gram quantities known as “dabs.”
What is rosin?
Rosin is simply a resin that is derived from plants such as pine trees or cannabis.
What is rosin presses?
A rosin press is an extraction device that uses pressure to create extracts like rosin. The extractor requires only heat and pressure to produce the concentrated material. After pressing the material can be dabbed or used in edibles or topicals. Other extraction methods are more complex and require the use of solvents or gases. Solvent based extracts are called oils because they are significantly more viscous than rosin. Gaseous extracts are called ‘wax’ for their resemblance to beeswax.
What is the difference between rosin and other cannabis concentrates?
The main difference between other forms of concentrates and rosin is that rosin is a solvent less hash made from trichomes, while other concentrates utilize solvents to create the hashish. Solvents like butane or propane are flammable and dangerous, but they separate the trichomes from the rest of the plant material. Once separated, the trichomes are left with high levels of THC and terpenes, which make it into an easy to use, highly concentrated form. Rosin hash avoids these chemicals, but still retains high levels of THC and terpenes in one easy to use form that can be dabbed or used for other applications.
How do I make rosin?
To make rosin you need: 1) heat source, 2) parchment paper, 3) heat press or firm surface and 4) rosin press. Usually you need about 0,25g – 0,50g of dry trim for 1 press. For example, if you want to use five presses you will need roughly 1,25g – 2,50g of dry trim. To make rosin use heat press between 160°C – 220°C (320°F – 428°F) depending on your material weight and hold this temperature for roughly 30sec – 45sec depending on your material weight and heat press used. Press slowly and evenly to avoid burning your material! Rosin should have bright and whitish color without dark spots on it. If your rosin has dark spots on it it means that your material has been overheated and burned. Burned material is useless so you must start over!
How long does rosin last?
The shelf-life of rosin depends greatly on storage conditions and how it will be used. Resin sealed up and stored in a cool place will usually last for months, but if you plan on dabbing the rosin frequently, it may only last for a few weeks or less. Always check with the seller or manufacturer for more specific shelf-life times for any concentrate products you purchase.

At Chronic Store we have a small selection of hash rosin available for purchase. Hash rosin is different from other types of live rosin because it is a solventless extract, typically made from bubble hash. This gives the hash rosin a strong, pure flavor because it captures the live terpene profile of the cannabis plant without the use of solvents and is usually made from freshly frozen or live flowers. Most hash rosin tests at about 75-85% cannabinoid content with a 4-15% terpene content; however, the hash rosin strains available at Chronic Store hold an 85-90% THC concentration with a 10-15% terpene concentration.
