Rosin pucks, otherwise known as Rosin chips, are small, disc-shaped used cannabis material that is ultimately the leftovers once cannabis has been extracted. Many people often quickly dispose of these chips due to being considered to be waste, but there are plenty of uses for them that you may never have considered.
This is because oils are still contained within those chips, which can easily be extracted and used for other purposes. If you are new to using cannabis, you may not know exactly what you can do with them, but this guide will give you some tips.
Here are some of the best things you can do with rosin pucks:
· Make edibles
It’s easy to make delicious edibles with rosin pucks, thanks to the unique flavor it provides through the oil. The process of extraction may take time, but the results are well worth it.
During the extraction, always ensure that you retain the active ingredients and dispose of the plant material to make the best of the contained oil substance. Keep in mind that you need to retain the lipids and fat content.
It’s easy to use rosin chips within recipes. Some of the most popular cooking options include cannabutter or oil. Regarding oil, you should add the oil and the chips to an infuser and follow the guidelines of the machine to achieve the best result.
· Repress them
What many people don’t realize is that rosin chips can be pressed again to extract more oil with the use of a rosin press. However, be aware that there may be less liquid, flavor, and quality each time you do this, but at least you are ensuring they don’t go to waste. This process may be more successful if you layer chips on top of one another during the pressing to extract the maximum oil content.
One of the most popular ways of reusing cannabis is to make tinctures. This is the act of dissolving the substance into alcohol to create a medicinal liquid. However, you’re going to need to use the purest alcohol you can find on the market for this to work to its maximum potential. Ideally, you should use 190-proof Everclear. However, this isn’t legal in many states around the U.S.A, so you may need to search for an alternative, such as the 151-proof Everclear.
It would always be a good idea to investigate the benefits of using the solution for your health condition and whether it is a good remedy for you. If so, simply drop some of the liquid under your tongue, and in a matter of time, you should start to notice the effects.
There is an abundance of ways you can reuse rosin chips to make use of those leftover cannabinoids, and the good news is that it doesn’t necessarily have to take a great deal of time and effort. Aim to collect the pucks in bulk to provide the highest output during pressing.
