When we talk about Rosin and BHO we mean a concentrated form of cannabis, or simply “concentrates”. As the name implies, concentrates are a more specific product made up of only the most desirable things in the cannabis plant (cannabinoids and terpenes).
You can almost think of concentrates as the “strong alcohol” of the cannabis world. Essentially, they are all a more potent form of cannabis.
Solvent and solvent-free extracts
The most noticeable difference between the extracts with solvents and those without solvent is very easy, the concentrates with solvent were elevated with some type of solvent (butanol and alcohol) to separate the trichomes of the cannabis plant. While solvent-free extracts separate without the aid of it.
What is the difference between Rosin and BHO?
Rosin and BHO are cannabis concentrates, but each is extracted in a very different way:
- Rosin: it is the result of an extraction method that squeezes the cannabinoids (THC, CBD) out of the cannabis material using only heat and pressure, making it “without solvents”. Rosin’s adaptability is of great benefit to cannabis consumers and producers.
- BHO, on the other hand, is extracted through the use of butane, a strong solvent that removes cannabinoids from the cannabis material. The extracted oil requires a thorough purge in vacuum furnace chambers to remove the butane so that it is consumable.
Many consumers are turning to the cleanest form of extractions to know that they are not smoking harmful chemicals when smoking or consuming cannabis oil.
Is Rosin Better Than BHO?
This is a somewhat difficult question to answer, as it is largely based on consumer preferences, on the other hand, there are some marked differences between the two concentrates.
Rosin’s hash is great, providing consumers with a safe alternative to making solvent-based extracts, such as BHO (a dangerous process), within the comfort of your own home. This is especially useful for those who do not have access to safe, quality solvent-based extractions.
In addition, Rosin is inherently safer to consume than concentrates made with butane, propane, alcohol …
Without a doubt, Rosin is one of the most versatile cannabis extracts. In fact with it you can do crumble, wax, budder, shatter, sugar and more.
