MINT HILL, NC – What is live rosin?
While similar to live resin in the sense that it is harvested from fresh or flash-frozen plant matter, rosin differs due to its solventless extraction process. Instead of chemical solvents, live rosin is made using pressure and heat. The plant material must first be turned into ice wax or bubble hash, which involves using water, ice, and a series of mesh bags to collect the fallen trichomes.
Once collected, the trichomes are processed in a rosin press, which applies heat and pressure to extract the sap. Depending on the temperature and pressure used during extraction, rosin can take on a variety of colors and consistencies. You can find rosin available as shatter, wax, badder (aka batter or budder), and taffy. Unlike the resin production process, which requires complex equipment and training, rosin can be made at home with a simple press or even a hair straightener.
Putting it simple, the difference between resin and rosin honestly comes down to extraction process.
- Live resin is extracted with chemical solvents to produce a potent, amber-colored concentrate that packs a punch on terpenes and flavonoids.
- Live rosin is extracted in a solventless or chemical-free manner and therefore may appeal to those who want to avoid the possibility of chemicals in their concentrate. However, because of this slightly lengthier process, prices tend to be a little higher for live rosin.
Both concentrates have a high yet LEGAL cannabinoid content and provide powerful and distinct experiences. Because of their high potency, it is best to start low and go slow with consumption. Regardless of the product, a little goes a long way with cannabis concentrates. Compared to other concentrates made from dried and cured cannabis plant material, both live resin and live rosin are intended to provide unique, flavorful, and aromatic experiences.
