Rosin is a popular type of concentrate that is solventless, and it is used with heat and pressure to squeeze or extract the concentrate from the plant or flower you are using. This extraction technique has been used for many years, and is very popular for CBD flower rosin.

CBD flower rosin pressing is fairly popular and preferable due to its simplicity, and lack of chemical or solvent use. In this method, the proper use of heat and pressure squeezes the oil out of the flower.

When pressed, the rosin wax can be used right away or saved for later.

What is CBD rosin?

CBD rosin is the concentrated substance of the hemp flower that is created by applying careful amounts of heat and pressure, and the yield for a hemp flower is generally lower mostly due to its weight.

Although, when using careful amounts of heat and pressure depending on the weight, you can manipulate a higher yield. Most people use this method of pressing CBD flower rosin to maintain it chemical-free, since there is no solvent needed.

If you do get a lower yield, you can repeat the process once or twice more to try and increase the yield. Your oil will be the final product of the pressing process on the parchment paper.

In order to press rosin, you will first need to make it. You’ll need to gather a few materials for this fairly easy task, but the importance lies in the quality of the materials as well as the settings of the presser you are using.

What do you need to make CBD rosin?

  •     CBD Flower
  •     Rosin press or hand press
  •     High quality rosin bags
  •     Parchment paper
  •     Collecting tool

What's the process of making rosin?

An important thing to note while using a presser with settings you can change is that you don’t want to over press and decrease your yield. Once you complete the press, your product should be yielded on the parchment paper.

If you have a low yield, especially in the case of using hemp you can try once or twice more by placing the parchment back on the presser.

Repeat the same pressing process, and afterwards look at your yield again. You don’t want to over press, so gradually build the pressure and monitor the sample as you go along.

Once the process is complete, remove the parchment from the press and examine your yield.

Use a collection tool to collect the oil off the parchment paper. You can use a tool such as a dabber to scrape and collect the oil off the parchment paper.

After all this is complete and you’ve collected the oil off the parchment, you may want to twist, stretch, and pull it to change the consistency from oil to something a little more solid. Once it is cooler, the oil will change its consistency.

Alternative method for pressing

In addition, if you want to supplement a press machine with something less expensive or less professional you can use a flat iron instead. This is just as easy to use but you may want to use heat resistant gloves if you will be pressing on your own and trying to get a higher yield on your own.

This method works but with more attention and cautiousness needed to keep the right pressure, temperature, and time. Overall, this method for pressing CBD flower resin is fairly doable.

A lot of people choose this route so as to not have to invest a large amount into a presser, and also need to maintain it.

Either way you may choose to go, the materials that are needed, the pressing process, and the clean-up is easy.

Hemp and Rosin Yields

There are a lot of factors that control your yield when it comes to CBD. Hemp is a great plant to produce CBD but compared to cannabis, it yields less rosin. On average, you can expect a 10% to 18% yield depending on the weight for a hemp flower.

Some factors that can control your yield are temperature, pressure, time duration, and amount of CBD in the strain you use.

To produce the best CBD rosin, here are some recommendations:

  • Start with your press temperature of 240 degrees, for either 2 minutes or until you yield about 15%
  • Follow the manufacturers guidelines for the amount of weight to press
  • Always use a press that you can adjust the settings for in order to have the ability to adjust for the best yield

The method of pressing CBD flower rosin has been used many years. The quality and the process of pressing rosin has increased in popularity partly due to its ease and mainly due to the lack of solvent use.

This chemical free method of extracting the CBD oil has very few steps, though the most important factors are crucial in receiving a good yield.

The hemp flower is amongst the lowest yields, partly due to its weight. Factors that can influence the yield are temperature, time, and pressure. 

If using a presser, it is easier to monitor the temperature, time, and pressure. Following a manufacturers guide will give you an advantage in producing a better yield.

If using a flat iron at home, the process remains the same though more attention is needed to monitor the time, pressure, and temperature at which needs to be set properly for developing a good yield.

Another quality to note is that the rosin bags you use should be high quality in order to seal and keep the rosin from contaminating the product. This is important also to keep air bubbles from affecting the yielding process when under pressure.

CBD flower resin can be easily pressed to extract its oil, and it can be used right away or stored for later. Either way, the process is fairly easy and it is the best way to extract the oil without the risks that come with chemicals.
