In today's world, medical marijuana patients have access to various cannabis concentrates that are highly valuable due to their potency and high concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes. That being said, many patient advocates and medical professionals worry about whether or not the extraction techniques involved in the processes could pose health risks because they involve the use of solvents. This is especially concerning when these concentrates are consumed in large quantities by patients with severe and chronic illnesses. Luckily, there are some extraction processes that produce concentrates without the use of solvents, one product being rosin.

Rosin is a an in-home extraction method that is both safe and convenient, much different than the extraction methods that involve butane which can not only cause explosions, but also pose a health threat from inhaling it over time. Rosin is safer because it does not use any volatile solvents like butane or alcohol, and because no solvents exist in the first place, there are no potential health risks from residual solvents. Patients who would like to use rosin for their medical marijuana therapy could choose to dab, smoke, or vaporize the substance. Unfortunately, rosin extraction produces variable results due to differences in cannabis quality, equipment, temperatures, and pressures involved in the process. Rosin is a new and useful substance for medical marijuana patients who would like a potent alternative to other forms of cannabis without the potential harmful effects of other concentrates that involve solvents.
