What is the difference between Rosin & Resin?
There is a lot of confusion between Rosin & Resin. What is the difference between these cannabis extracts? We explore what the difference is to help you make a better buying decision.
What is Rosin?
Rosin is a solventless extract. It is often made by pressing bubble hash that was made from freshly frozen, or live cannabis flowers. The process of pressing the plant matter or bubble hash captures the live terpene profile of the cannabis plant. By doing this, Rosin often times has a much more diverse terpene profile that better represents the plant it was extracted from. This is one of many reasons why Rosin is such a popular cannabis concentrate across the USA.
What is Resin?
Resin generally means the concentrate was extracted using some type of solvent. Often times companies use BHO to preform the extraction for cannabis resin. This method is a single pass extraction which also generally produces more of the end product vs rosin. Resin has been around a bit longer than Rosin in the legal cannabis market. This means most concentrate companies have some type of resin product they produce and sell.
