Hash Rosin: What Makes It Different and Why People Love it
Compared to hash, which has had its fans for literally centuries, hash rosin is what’s looking to become a meteoric rise in popularity among cannabis users. In most cases, the reasons for the growing appeal point back to how hash rosin is made, which leads to a different user experience than the one provided by other concentrates.
What is Hash Rosin?
Before we get into the experience, let’s talk for a minute about what hash rosin is and the different forms it comes in.
Simply put, hash rosin is a concentrate of cannabinoids and terpenes extracted from various parts of a cannabis plant, including flower and leaf trimmings. The concentrate is created via a three-step process that begins with an ice water wash that knocks off and preserves the plant’s trichomes. The trichomes which hold almost all of a plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes are then sifted out and dried into a bubble hash or sand that is packed tightly together and then machine-pressed with just the right amount of heat to convert it into the sticky, waxy substance we know as hash rosin.
Concentrates can be made from cannabis that’s been dried and cured or from cannabis that’s been harvested and flash frozen. Hash from cured cannabis is referred to as hash rosin while concentrate made from fresh-frozen cannabis is called live hash rosin.
How Is it Different?
Unlike many concentrates, which rely on solvents to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes, hash rosin is made using only water, heat, and pressure to perform the same extraction. Because hash rosin doesn’t introduce any outside chemicals or materials during the extraction process, it’s considered to be a full-spectrum extract; that is, it preserves more of the full cannabinoid and terpene contents of the raw cannabis plant from which it came.
What that means to you is a high-potency, high-terpene product that not only kicks in fast but has meaningful staying power. Many people also feel that hash rosin products have cleaner flavor profiles and offer a more full-body, well-rounded high than other forms of cannabis.
Hash Rosin Edibles Have Arrived!
Long-standing fans of hash rosin are used to enjoying it smoked—often mixed into joints—or commonly dabbed. More recently, hash rosin has found its way into edibles, most notably gummies.
The Pass is excited to introduce two new additions to its Hash Rosin Edible line-up:
Cherry Hash Rosin Gummies Blueberry Live Hash Rosin Gummies
Described as “tasty” and “powerful,” both of these juicy-good products are earning praise for the “better buzz” and “different experience” they offer.
Maya’s also excited about the new offering as it provides a whole new way to feature Pass strains of flower and to use the terpenes as a part of the flavor profile. She adds, “We try to consider what will blend nicely with those terpenes when we develop the flavors. The aim is to not mask the hash flavor as is done in distillate gummies.”
