Global acceptance of marijuana came a long way in 2018. Canada took a huge step by legalising the recreational use of marijuana. California, with its already thriving medical marijuana market, legalised recreational sales causing other states to rethink their policies. We are expecting to see the majority of states follow suit in the coming year. Additionally the UK faced a high profile medical case which resulted in the emergency issue of a license so that Cannabis Oil could be used to treat a high-risk patient, soon after medical marijuana was legalised and recreational could eventually follow.
The world appears to be loosening up, and for behind doors blazers, perhaps not much will change except for where you buy your bag, but there comes a shift in other things, too. With more minds open to the medical and recreational wonders of this plant, there are more creative ideas coming out on how to make the best of it.
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has been a rising star of the last few years as a treatment and self prescribed natural remedy for a number of conditions. The only problem is, with varying drug laws prohibiting and allowing the use of certain sections of hemp or cannabis plants, there are so many different versions, strengths and compositions of the oils, it can be difficult to know if what you’re buying really suits your needs.
This is where great minds come to play to generate a new extraction method that would come to be known as rosin pressing. Rosin is a high grade extract of marijuana which is obtained through applying heat and pressure, originally using a pair of straighteners. That’s right, home extraction! That means you oversee the whole process and know exactly what your end product is made up of, which by the way includes in tact terpenes and cannabinoids as they are preserved by the heat.
Techniques have already improved and the rosin press market is quickly expanding, with names like NugSmasher standing out for their simple, affordable, yet high quality presses that will stand the test of time. The best thing about using a rosin press is that no chemicals are required for the extraction, such as in other methods, so the results are clean and solventless. You can get your own NugSmasher rosin press and additional accessories at Trimleaf.
The benefit of extracting your own rosin rather than purchasing oils, is that you know exactly what you’re producing, and there’s no need to compromise when it comes to quality. There is no alteration in the product you’re dealing with, only the way you administer it later, so it’s the safest way to know what you’re putting in your body. Furthermore, rosin advocates emphasise that not only does extracting with a rosin press even retain its chemical make up, it also holds on to the natural flavours of cannabis, resulting in the most delicious extract you can get your hands on.
