Make Rosin Dabs at Home with This Affordable Beauty Tool
Have you ever wanted to try to make your own dabs but weren’t sure where to begin? Guess what! It’s easier than you thought! There’s no need for expensive presses and equipment, you can make your very own rosin dabs safely at home using two common household items – a hair straightening tool and some parchment paper.
Rosin is a solventless extract created using heat and pressure. This makes it the ideal product to safely make at home from any of your favorite strains.
Here’s all you need to get started:
- A wide, flat hair straightener with low-temperature settings (215°-300°f). Anything hotter and you’ll lose valuable terpenes and cannabinoids.
- Base material – cannabis flowers, kief, hash, etc…
- Parchment paper
- Collection tool/ scraper
- Heat-resistant gloves
Pre-heat your styling tool to the lowest setting.
Cut one square of parchment paper that’s approximately 2x the width of your iron surface.
Place your base material on one side of the parchment paper. Fold in half.
Place the folded packet into the flat iron and compress for several seconds, until you hear sizzling.
Remove the packet from heat, open carefully and remove any plant material.
Collect the remaining residue. Repeat as necessary with fresh material.
TIP: For a more malleable product, collect the residual rosin into a small pile on your parchment paper. Refold and gently press to make a flat “disc,” then place on a cool surface for a minute or two.
