noun, also called colophony
Chemistry: The yellowish to amber, translucent, hard, brittle, fragmented resin left after distilling the oil of turpentine from the crude oleoresin of the pine: used chiefly in making varnishes, varnish and paint driers, printing inks, and for rubbing on the bows of such string instruments as the violin.
The above definition covers all types of rosin; the hash type of rosin is something relatively new, or at least as far as online content goes. The technique has been popularized by producers and consumers who regularly post videos online in order to provide tips and tricks to their fellow cannabis enthusiasts.
The advantages of making Rosin hash
One of the main reasons why Rosin hash has become so notorious as of late, is that it is one of the cheapest ways to obtain hash from a cannabis flower. As demonstrated in the video tutorial above, the items needed are easy to find and can be used multiple times, and the process itself is fairly painless. The most common items required to produce Rosin hash are:
- a hair straightener
- a silicon mat
- parchment paper
- cannabis flowers
While the hair straightener can be somewhat of a pricey factor, since it does not require maintenance besides basic cleaning, and can be used as long as it is functional, there is no doubt its cost would quickly be paid off.
Another important reason which won over hash makers all over the world, is that the Rosin method is fairly safe. Provided one does not apply any body part on the hair straightening iron during the hash making process, the technique constitutes one of the safest ways to produce high quality cannabis extracts, especially compared to solvent-based extractions.
Moreover, it is also possible to produce Rosin from homemade hash. The process is the same, making the method an all-round novice-friendly, easy to master solution for consumers of all kinds.
