Rosin is produced by putting cannabis between two hot plates and putting pressure. A brownish substance that is spilled out is basically rosin.

In this article we will tell you how you can make your own rosin wax. Let’s get started! 

There are two methods of making rosin wax. The first one is making rosin wax with a rosin press and the second one is with a hair straightener. 

Making Rosin Wax with Rosin Press 

What you will need: 

To make rosin wax with rosin press, you will need the following: 

  1. Rosin Press
  2. 5g of Cannabis (you may need more of these) 
  3. Squares of Parchment paper 
  4. Pollen press
  5. Wax collecting tools
  6. 25-micron press bags 

 

  • The first step is to turn on the rosin press. (Figure out the most suitable temperature according to each strain) 
  • While the rosin press is heating up, you can grind up 1-5g of cannabis. (Adjust the amount according to your need) 
  • Make a disc from your cannabis using your pollen press.
  • Next, put the cannabis disc in a 25-micron bag. By doing this, you will have the cannabis and the rosin separated. Please note: Some of the rosin will be absorbed by the micron bag. While it is annoying, it keeps rosin pure and prevents cannabis from reabsorbing the pressed-out rosin. 
  • At the back of the envelope, place your micron bag with your disc.
  • Start the press by opening the heated plates.
  • Press your cannabis by placing it on the bottom plate and closing the plates.
  • 60-90 seconds are sufficient for the disk to be left between the plates at 220°F.
  • This step is pretty risky; hence it is important to be careful. Open the plates carefully, as there is a chance of getting burnt. Then go ahead and remove the envelope.
  • Once you open the envelope, you will see a sticky liquid. The sticky liquid is the rosin that you need.
  • Let the rosin on the parchment paper cool for about a minute after you remove the used disk of cannabis without letting it touch the rosin.
  • You are now all set to remove the freshly made rosin with a scraping tool.

Making Rosin Wax with Hair Straightener 

What You’ll Need:

  1. Hair Straightener
  2. At least 1g of Cannabis (you may need more later on)
  3. Squares of Parchment paper 
  4. Oven-safe gloves
  5. Pollen press 
  6. Wax collecting tool
  7. 25-micron press bags

 

  • Grind up 1-5g of cannabis. (Adjust the amount according to your need) 
  • Make a disc from your cannabis using your pollen press.
  • Make an envelope out of parchment paper for your cannabis.
  • At the back of the envelope, place your cannabis disc. Please note: Some of the rosin will be absorbed by the micron bag. While it is annoying, it keeps rosin pure and prevents cannabis from reabsorbing the pressed-out rosin. 
  • Then, turn your hair straightener on, and make sure that it is placed on a surface that won’t be damaged due to heat.
  • Put your oven safe gloves on as you will be dealing with heat. 
  • Next, place the envelope between the discs of the straightener and put pressure. A sizzling sound should be produced. 
  • Then remove the envelope and you will see homemade rosin wax on it. Make sure to let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Then, with the help of a scraping tool, separate the rosin. 

In both the methods, it is optional to press the cannabis one more time to get maximum rosin from it. You can press one more time to avoid wasting the product.
