i have made wax by compressing/heating buds between parchment paper, i love dipping a ball of wax in kief , makes for a fantastic ‘‘hash like’’ smoke… they do make rosin presses for home use at a fairly reasonable price…

Hey @mikes - does the “wax” separate from the plant material? In using this method, are you basically “squeezing” the wax out of the buds?

yes, its rosin but they call it wax for some reason, although its not very waxy, i find it easier to leave it on the parchment paper & freeze it, then peel it off & put it in a silicone container for dabbing. its pretty sticky when its warm…

also the bud puck thats left is still smokable it will be less potent…

OK - got it! Essentially you’re doing a warm press. I do the opposite - freeze the sugar leaves/buds/etc and crush them. Sift the whole works through a silk screen (I use a 150 micron), which gives a fairly pure (80+%) kief powder. Very easy/clean/no-mess method and you can harvest even the smallest amount of “thc crystals” from the plant material. This is a simple version of the “dry ice using hash bags” method.

Thank you! It sounds a bit complicated…one day.

The only complicated part is justifying the price of a press :rofl:
