Rosin is Trending! This is Why!
Rosin. A Primer to the Most Trendy of Weed Extracts.
Shop talk with Canna West Seattle’s vendors and partners is heavily focused on Rosin right now. It’s hot. Why? It all depends on your mojo of course, and those friends of mine who have become Rosin devotees typically only offer simple, straightforward explanations along the lines of, ‘the Rosin is so good. So clean and so good.’
If you want to know what time it is, relatively speaking, ask my stoner friends. If, however, you want to know how they built the watch simply ask Canna West Seattle’s budtenders. If you have time, they are more than happy to go into full detail about what makes Rosin different and how they support you in conducting your own investigations. Since Canna West’s budtenders are a bit busier than normal right now dealing with pandemic protocols, I thought we could save them all a bit of time by publishing some of their thoughts here:
What is Rosin?
Technically, Rosin is the result of an extraction process. In the case of cannabis, it is a sappy, shatter like substance that is mined directly from flower, kief or hash using extraction methods that do not involve solvents.
Why is Rosin so popular right now?
It is super clean. You can taste the terpenes. Most hash and kief products are derived from a process of extraction that involves the use of solvents, whereas Rosin is a natural process that doesn’t use solvents. If you care about that type of thing, then you might gravitate towards Rosin.
The Pineapple Express Rosin Batter by Dank Czar can be described as sweet and smooth. This applies to both the flavor and the experience. Hands down, the best and cleanest high I’ve ever had. ~ Canna Babe
How do I smoke Rosin?
Most people dab Rosin, but I personally like to throw a bit on top of a bowl full of good flower. It works just as well and might be a tad bit less intense in terms of delivery.
When do I smoke Rosin?
I suppose it depends on who you are and what you intend to do, but Rosin is not likely your daily type of smoke. Rather, it is like that really expensive Scotch or Tequila you store in your liquor cabinet for special occasions. You can store Rosin in the fridge for a long time. A gram, used properly, could last you months.
Where can I buy Rosin?
Canna West Seattle, when it is available. Despite being trendy, Rosin is in short supply and so it is difficult to source. To boot, there is not a huge demand for it yet from West Seattle customers, but that is slowly changing as people catch on to its clean and tasty nature. The price of a gram of Rosin ranges from $40 to $80, depending upon the producer.
Right now, Canna West has a limited stock of premium rosin by Dank Czar. Pre order online here, but do it quick as this supply won’t last long.
