After I press mine, I add them in my pot to make canna butter for edibles to get anything that's left out of themEnjoy guys! Be prepared for the tastiest dab of your life.
Here we have your Average cheap Hair straighter. Im using my wifes so no purchase necessary she said it was approx $25usd
This particular Straightener has heat settings and this is good as you want to stay between 360-400 degrees F.
You want nice little .4-.6 nuggets for this batch i used some 24c x ccb by Mephisto Genetics. You dont want to do bigger nugs then that weight and nice and dry guys so you can hear the Magic happen. Youl understand soon.
Now that we have out Hair Straightener pre heated and our buds broken down to a deseired weight its time for our patchament paper. This will be used to be folded around the bud and collect the wax when pressed.
Now we have our .5 gram bud placed between our parchment paper taco. Its now ready to be Heat pressed. Yes thats right guys im going to make wax thats solvent free with my wifes Hair Straightener. I wear a oven mit on my hand im pressing as it does get hot your third or forth nug in. So simply press the bud hard with as much pressure as you can using the hair straightener. Youl hear tbe magic i spoke of earlier. Itll be a sizzle press like your life defended on it for 4-6 seconds and quickly dump you bud from the parchment paper. Youl be left with this golden solvent free pure heat pressed wax.
Just wanted to clarify this parchment paper taco. Buds between the folded patchament paper that then gets the press to the paper. Use a table or counter to hold the hair straightener flat and allow you to get a hard firm press
Make sure to collect the wax AFTER EVERY press. You dont want to press your weed into wax.
The 4-6 second sizzle will leave this on both side's of the parchment paper. I simply scrape this off with my dabber or a razor balde if im doing bigger runs or want a big dab. I did 2 grams and got two nice dabs for me and my buddy. Yield isnt huge but its very quick and very very tasy guys.
Guys you can even press the Nugs a second time I did this and still squeezed some wax out of them.
and for all of you who don't have set ups to dab layer it in a bowl with some flowers.
Ok guys heres what the buds look like After i have Pressed them once let colled for a min the pressed again.
My first press time varies from 4-9 seconds
My second press i do 10 seconds. Yes guys you can press twice.
I then discard of the buds in the Trash as most THC is Removed.
Your right lol fair priced is very debatable .. yeah the last time I looked around the prices we're up there.. I just figure you'll see the price scale down before longFair priced is debatable, but there are some nice options coming availble for "ready to go" presses. Was just looking around today and found one that if I had better income right now I'd be strongly considering. New Vape makes plates to use with pnumatic presses that are heated using enail coils, and have started offering a complete kit that's suppose to have everything ready to go. Even ships to ya' in the little crate that serves double duty as a little rolling workstation for the press.
Bad news....they want $2400.00 for it. YIKES!!! (like I said...fair priced is debatable)
Holy shit things getting serious here!!! Good effort [emoji16]Decided that rosin pressing sounds like the way to go for what to do with all the flower I'm accumulating from growing. Didn't really like the cheapo hair straightener I tried previously, but it did work well enough to at least know that I like the method.
So after reading most of this thread, reading up on several diferent presses on the market, looking around at videos, etc... I decided to pull the trigger and ordered the 6 Ton press kit from NewVape this morning.
Will get some unboxing shots and maybe even try to do a little review vid once everything shows up. This should be fun!!!! WOO HOOO!!!!!
