Thank you. That was very informative.Enjoy 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.
This may have already been answered and is probably a completely noob question but if I first extract the kief and then press that using this method I would extract more wax, correct? I'm thinking for my trim and scraps and would be interesting to try this? ThanksOk guys so this is called the Rosin Tech it was introduced by a guy who goes by SoilGrown and was recently Discovered I'd say.
If you like to Dab and don't want to make BHO or don't Dab because your simply an all organic smoker.
This Process is the Simplest Safest way to produce some super Pure Headie Dabs!!
Stay tuned for steps and pictures..
If at any point in time you like this thread jump on up and give it the 5 star rating guys. Thanks
FarmerD, from my experience which is I got my press together on the 2nd the more it's handled the less rosin yielded. I would think you would have fine particles in it for sure. Also in the end it all depends on the strain. Some just don't yield for shit lol. Some are just oily, whatever you use, as long as it's quality you "should" get good product. Ripleys OG is the best so far for yield and very nice color and taste, strong too. The danker, stickier, frostier the better on average. Test it out and let us know.This may have already been answered and is probably a completely noob question but if I first extract the kief and then press that using this method I would extract more wax, correct?

Stay lit bro
It is a mess for sure! I tell you what tho, I did some GSC fresh cut and it had the most insane taste ive had yet. Messy with not a lot of yield but what a taste, it blew my mind. Will try it again for sure.In my experience you want to dry for sure. Too much moisture in the flower and/or leaf material and you end up with a runny, watery mess when you press it out that doesn't scrape up into anything usable.
Curing from what I've seen with my pressing seems to be more of a taste thing. No cure for me made a harsher, more plant tasting oil. Week plus of cure seems to give a more smooth, nicer tasting oil in my opinion.
