All You Need to Know about Rosin Press Extraction.
Rosin is the concentrate and oil that can be obtained when cannabis is subjected to high temperature and pressure. The heat applied to the cannabis material when performing rosin press extraction is to liquefy the oil as the pressure mobilizes it before the filter separates the oil from the rest of the plant material.This process of extracting rosin will turn the trichomes and cannabinoids into a liquid extrudes it out of the cannabis that is under the mentioned pressure and temperature. Rosin press extraction is actually one of the simplest extraction methods of getting oil from cannabis. When under the pressure and heat the trichome heads will rupture and produce butter, shatter or oil that contains active compounds such as the cannabinoids and terpenes.
Due to the uniqueness of rosin extraction, it more often involves a series of wide experimentation with the key components before the desired final product is created. In order to gain full control and develop the needed consistency in the cannabis extraction, you need to do active exploration with the key elements of rosin extraction.Experimentation is required when using the rosin press method because each element of the cannabis exert its influence that can be felt in the quality and makeup of the end product.If you want to have more control over the influence of the elements, you should not use a primitive device to extract the oil from the cannabis.
Rosin press extraction depends fully on pressure and temperature to obtain oil without utilization of any solvent. Basically the moisture content inside the flowers help to decrease viscosity so that the oils can easily flow.
Through experimentation the rosin extraction method which is relatively a recent innovation is being improved each passing day.
The humidity of the cannabis material from which oil is to be extracted should be about 60% in order to prevent oil from soaking into the material in which case the yields will be lower. Temperature being the basic aspect of rosin extraction should be maintained at optimum levels. Raising the temperatures of the process beyond 230 F can cause damage to crucial ingredients of the cannabis material; generally, the temperature should range from 150 F to 230 F
More pressure does not mean more oil yields when the recommended levels even though the pressure is the basic component of rosin press extraction. A pressure of about 550 PSI to 1000 PSI is needed for optimum oil yields from the extraction method.
Time taken for the extraction to be completed and the quality of the plant material also affects the quality of the extracted rosin. In order to get the best rosin quality, you should not unnecessarily prolong extraction time and you must choose quality plants coupled with the optimum conditions.
