On today's episode of The Weed Show with Charlo Greene, we gave our live cyber audience a full course on Dabs 101. Chris from Dabberbox dropped by, ready with enails and presses to provide the full rundown. He walked Charlo and the audience through everything we need to know about dabs: what they are, how to make them, and the most proper way to dab.
Concentrates. Extracts. DABS. So many names, so many forms. Where do you even begin? Dabberbox says start with rosin: the process of using heat and pressure to "squish" the oil out of your buds. This process ensures all of your cannabinoids are preserved and that nothing foreign is added to your dab.
So, how can you make your own rosin? Jump to 51:30 in the video to get your four steps on how to make your own rosin.
To summarize, you'll first need some equipment: rosin micron bags and a heat press, both products Dabberbox makes available.
The first step in pressing your own rosin is to stuff your rosin bags with the flower of your choice. You then need to prepare your machine, which will vary in time and steps depending on what machine you have. For the Dabberbox press, you'll plug it into an air compressor and power source, and set your desired temperature. The third step is to physically squish your nugs on the press -- two tons of heat and pressure press down on the marijuana for about a minute, squishing out the most concentrated form of the plant's cannabinoids. The final step is to gather andprepare your yielded wax. When the wax is hot off the press, you can manipulate, scrape and smooth out your wax into a nice slab, a rosin coin, or whatever you like!
