    Default Unanswered: Pressing crystals

    Hi all, quick question. A friend of mine invested in a resin press the other week, he’s still waiting on its arrival but he’s planning on using 10g of crystals to press, would this actually get any kind of resin or would he just compact all those crystals?
    Looking forward to hearing what might happen

    Unless you mean a rOsin press which is something completely different as that melts the trichomes.

    Yeah, it was a cheap thing that came as a freebie with something else... big things, as you describe, are nicer but too expensive for my meager needs

    I use A press like MC, but it press's in several grams, if you want, much bigger. After I press all I can, I put in the oven on 250 degrees for A couple minutes just to melt the oils A little, than get several more turns on the press, and it turns out hard as A rock.

    That press you are talking about is something complete different, it gets out much more purer THC than just pressing A hash block.

    I believe REX has one of those press, maybe he will jump in when he see's this post, and explane it to you. I just use a simple Clay Extruder.

    Sounds like a proper rosin press then, which are generally used to press nearly pure THC out of very fine mesh bags. I have no experience with this but I'm guessing it could be used to press 'pollen' as well to end up with a much more pure product.

    Resin is another term used for trichomes which are the resin glands that produce our beloved high. The thing in M_C's picture is called a pollen press which makes things even more confusing as it's not used to press actuall pollen but kief to turn it into hash.

    Yeah I think he bought some micron bags or something? Like the ones for making hash I think... he was also planning on using the squashed bud he had left for infused coconut oil, although I’m not sure how effective that would be if it’s just had all the THC etc pressed out of it

    Pressing 10g of crystals sounds heavenly! Make sure to press at a very low heat about 80°c you should get some real fire, any hoter it will taste shit.
    You should get about 70/80% return from the crystals in wax

    U might only get a couple gram back from pressing on a rosin press as most static clean the trichomes to remove any plant matter then press through a 25 micron bag
    Farmer on here has a thread on rosin pressing

    This is a nice low-tech option for processing crystals/kief.
    There is a video in that thread as well and with a bit of luck Peanut Butter will start before the end of the year

    You won’t get 80% return,the pros are getting 25% max.
    It's nice to be nice.

    Isn't that 25% when pressing bud? If your material has more THC to start with the yield will be higher as well.

    Not exactly. The higher THC, means lower intake to get to some or same results. Making it more over all, but not more in A since like you were thinking. Benson123 is right I think. JMO
