Frequently Asked Questions
What is Rosin?
Rosin refers to an extraction process that utilizes a combination of heat and pressure to nearly instantaneously squeeze resinous sap from your initial starting material. The word “rosin” originally came being a form of solid resin obtained from pines and certain other plants. With cannabis, this extraction technique is incredibly versatile, it can either be used with flowers, or further processed material like Bubble Hash or Kief, and that turned into a full-melt hash oil. With Rosin, there can be many different consistencies and end products such as buttery, translucent, sappy, shatter-like, crumble, and even made into rosin cartridges. If processed properly, rosin can beat other solvent-based extraction products in flavour, potency, and yields.
Why choose Rosin over other solvent based extraction products?
The Rosin extraction process requires no foreign substances, it is simply a mechanical process which utilizes heat and pressure to extract the essential oils from the plant or starting material. Other extraction methods use solvents such as butane, propane alcohol or CO2 (CO2 is not a solvent but extractions using CO2 is considered a solvent based product). With these extraction methods, if they're not purged properly or for the right amount of time residual solvents could be left in the final product, and you don't want to be inhaling those solvents into your lungs.
When Rosin extraction is done properly and especially through extra processing with bubble hash, it will retain almost all of the valuable terpenes that we want to get when we're using cannabis. We want all the terpenes because we're looking for more than just the THC and CBC, we want the full effect. What we don't want is the solvents that could be left behind in other extracts, and when you test rosin there will be 0 PPM (parts per million) of residual hydrocarbons.
We at Maple Melts believe cannabis should be enjoyed in its most natural and clean state, and the Rosin extraction process is the best way to go! We're not saying that other extracts can't be clean or purged properly, but do you know if they are for sure? Do you want to risk inhaling foreign chemicals into your body?
