  • What is meant by Rosin?

Rosen refers to the procedure of oil extraction, which provides a good taste and smell to cannabis with the pressure in the heat applied to it. The procedure is effortless and does not require materials like butane and propane compared to other processes. There is no requirement for another solvent for its production. The results produced with the process are purified and similar in taste as well as smell to the strains from which it is extracted.

  • What is the role of temperature in extracting Rosin?

Temperature plays a critical role in the production of good quality Rosin. If the material is pressed at low temperatures ranging from 190°F to 220°F, the rosin will have a significant flavor and Terpenes, but the yields would be lesser.
