Let’s face it, pressing Rosin is the best way to squeeze out all the juices from cannabis. By using heat and pressure to extract resin from the herb (plant matter), anyone can yield some high quality resin.
The biggest problem with pressing rosin is the cost of equipment. Unless your willing to squeeze out tiny amounts of resin using a hair straightener, your going to have to spend a few bucks. I have seen a lot of great machines go for thousands of dollars, but spending that much wouldn’t make sense unless your running a business.
If your are interested in producing some good rosin at great yield your going to need two things:
High pressure – at least 500lb to 1,000lb ( 2+ tons preferred )
Heat – 150°F to 350°F ( 200°F preferred )
The finished product, check images below for links.
When Pressing rosin, less heat is needed at higher pressures, meaning you can almost cold press rosin, if you have the right equipment. But, lets stick to the script here. I’m about to show you how you can make your own DIY Rosin Press for less than $500.
Thats right, a press that can dish out 12,000lb of pressure with temperature controls for the most yields! Best of all, it only takes a couple of minutes to set up and use.
