Because it's one of the most popular forms of solventless extraction, many want to know what the best rosin press is.
From manual to hydraulic, electric to pneumatic - there are all kinds of different technologies, but which is right for you?
There are tons of options out there, and shopping can get overwhelming.
Before we get into our detailed breakdowns of each press, we want to help you understand how we came up with these selections. We also want to cover some basic info on rosin pressing in general so you can make the most informed purchase possible.
When extracting rosin, whether it be from fresh flowers or from dry sift, there are two main factors - heat and pressure.
They are inversely affected by one another. The more heat you use, the less pressure you need. Conversely, the more pressure you use, the less heat you need.
You may think that more heat will result in larger yields. This is not true! Using too much heat will burn off terpenes and other compounds that make rosin so sought after. You should stick to lower heat.
For flowers: 220°F - 240°F for about 30 - 45 seconds
For dry sift: 180°F - 210°F for 45 - 90 seconds
As soon as you finish your press, remove rosin from the plates as fast as possible. This will minimize any degradation of active compounds and terpenes. Pure Pressure makes some really cool Gold Plates which you can place your rosin on right after pressing to speed up cooling.
As we mentioned earlier, there is a relationship between temperature and pressure. If you want to cold press (sub 200), you’ll need more pressure, and longer pressing duration.
The ideal plate structure of a rosin press is longer and narrower. This is because this shape maximizes the perimeter of your press.
Your rosin press should have uniform heat distribution. The way heat works to extract rosin is by melting the trichomes and other essential compounds into a lower viscous form.
By playing with the temperature, you can change the consistency of the rosin to either a shatter, butter, or pull n snap.
The followed are the best rosin press of 2022 that are available.
