Cannabis resin extraction is an exciting technique that allows you to obtain high quality and potent concentrates. Whether you choose dry, ice, gas or heat and pressure extraction, each method has its own characteristics and benefits.
In addition, resin presses give you the ability to transform concentrates into compact, easy-to-handle products. Remember to purchase the necessary resin extraction equipment from reliable specialised shops.

Dry resin extraction is a popular and simple method of obtaining cannabis concentrates. This process involves separating the trichomes (resin glands) from dried and cured buds. The most common technique is to shake the buds in a container separated by a sieve, such as a Hash Shaker, which allows the trichomes to fall out and be collected.
Dry extraction is appreciated for its simplicity and does not require the use of chemical solvents. The concentrates obtained usually have a sandy or granular texture, known as kief. This kief can be used directly or pressed to form hash.
Ice resin extraction, also known as ice water hash extraction, is a method that uses low temperatures to separate the trichomes from the cannabis plant. The buds are mixed with ice water and shaken vigorously to freeze and detach the trichomes.
The resulting mixture is passed through a series of extraction bags of different mesh sizes, allowing the trichomes to be separated from other plant impurities. The resins obtained through this process are known as filtrate, water hash or ice hash, and usually have a high concentration of pure trichomes.
For this we will use washing machines, achieving a greater centrifugation and an easier, faster and higher quality extraction.
We have different complete kits that include washing machine, different types of mesh with different microns, pyramid bag and thermometer.
Gas resin extraction, also known as BHO (Butane Hash Oil) or cannabis oil extraction, is a method that uses gases such as butane or propane to extract the desired compounds from the cannabis plant. It is important to use the right gas for this type of extraction.
In this process, the gas is passed through the cannabis buds, dissolving the trichomes and other active compounds. The gas is then evaporated, leaving behind an oily and potent concentrate.
For this we use a BHO extractor, a cylinder that can be made of different materials such as metal (Roller extractor), plastic (Honey Bee, Gasolinator...) among others. Available in different sizes.
It is important to bear in mind that gas resin extraction must be carried out with caution and following the appropriate safety measures, as the gases used are flammable. It is recommended to perform this technique in a well-ventilated environment and with specialised equipment.
Resin presses are tools used to compact and shape cannabis concentrates, such as kief or hashish, into more manageable and easier to store products.
These presses apply pressure to the extruded material, compressing it and transforming it into a solid form. Rosin presses are available in different sizes and designs, allowing them to be adapted to individual needs and preferences.
Rosin presses are a popular way to extract cannabis resin without the use of chemical solvents. This technique uses heat and pressure to extract the desired compounds from cannabis buds, producing a high-quality concentrate known as rosin.
The rosin extraction process involves placing the cannabis buds between parchment paper and applying pressure and heat using a specific rosin press. The combined pressure and heat allow the trichomes to break down and release the active compounds, which then adhere to the parchment paper.
The resulting rosin is a sticky, viscous concentrate that preserves the terpenes and volatile compounds present in the cannabis plant. This extraction method has become increasingly popular among consumers and growers due to its simplicity and the purity of the concentrates obtained.
