Welcome to our guide on how to make rosin at home! If you’re a cannabis enthusiast looking for an easy and effective way to extract the potent goodness from your favorite buds, then you’ve come to the right place. Rosin is a popular solventless concentrate that can be made right in the comfort of your own home with just a few simple tools and some high-quality flower. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the step-by-step process of making rosin, so grab your herb and get ready to embark on a DIY adventure that will elevate your cannabis experience to new heights! So let’s roll up our sleeves (pun intended) and dive into the wonderful world of homemade rosin extraction.

How to make rosin at home

  1. Gather Your Materials
    Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary materials on hand. You’ll need some high-quality cannabis flower, parchment paper, a hair straightener or rosin press (if available), and a collection tool such as a dabber or scraper.

  2. Prepare Your Flower
    Start by breaking up your flower into smaller pieces. This will help increase the surface area and allow for better extraction of the cannabinoids and terpenes. Make sure to remove any stems or seeds that may be present.

  3. Preheat Your Press
    If you’re using a hair straightener, set it to a low temperature (around 200-220°F). If you have a rosin press, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for proper preheating settings.

  4. Place Flower Between Parchment Paper
    Take a small piece of parchment paper and fold it in half. Open it back up and place your prepared flower between the folded parchment paper, ensuring that there is enough space around the edges for the rosin to escape during extraction.

  5. Apply Pressure and Heat
    Using your heated hair straightener or rosin press, apply firm pressure onto the parchment paper with your flower inside. Hold this pressure for about 3-5 seconds before releasing.

  6. Collect Your Rosin
    Carefully open up the parchment paper after applying pressure to see if any rosin has been extracted from your cannabis flowers. If so, use your collection tool to scrape it off gently.

7: Repeat as Desired
You can repeat these steps with fresh flower until you’ve obtained as much rosin as desired!

Remember, making homemade rosin requires practice and experimentation to achieve optimal results in terms of flavor and potency! Have fun exploring different strains and techniques while honing in on what works best for you personally.


Thanks this is all I do at home press or open blast. I currently use a 7 ton dulytek press and love it. Such a cleaner taste to the smoke I think.
