With the normalization of cannabis use to treat medical conditions, new ways of consuming cannabis are on the rise.
Dabbing BHO concentrates and vaping cannabis products is becoming more popular among those seeking medical treatment, mainly due to convenience and increased desirable effects.
But there’s a new way to consume medical cannabis, and it’s growing in popularity – cannabis rosin.
What is Cannabis Rosin?
Cannabis rosin is a sticky substance that’s rich in cannabinoids and terpenes. It’s made with a solvent-free extraction process that uses pressure and heat – usually with a piece of machinery called a rosin press.
The result is a clean, pure, and potent cannabis extract that can be consumed in a variety of ways – with all the associated benefits of CBD.
1. Safe and Simple to Use
Using cannabis rosin is a safe and effective way to consume cannabis. Although it looks a lot like cannabis concentrates like BHO, it’s very different.
Cannabis rosin is made without using any solvents, which means that there is no chance of any potentially harmful solvent residue (like butane) getting left behind in the end product. Cannabis rosin is a clean, potent, and residue-free extract, which makes it ideal for medical use.
2. Quick Pain Relief
Individuals who suffer from painful nerve disorders such as migraine headaches and fibromyalgia can use cannabis rosin to quickly alleviate pain.
Cannabis rosin contains high concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it treats chronic pain more effectively than addictive opioids (which are fueling America’s opioid crisis) or NSAIDs, and it can also be used to quickly calm seizures.
3. Reduced Anxiety
Cannabis is known to relieve anxiety and reduce feelings of anger and frustration, especially among PTSD and generalized anxiety disorder sufferers. Cannabis may also help with the symptoms of depression.
The reason that cannabis can help with mood and anxiety disorders is due to alkaloids that seem to restore normal endocannabinoid function in the human brain – stabilizing mood and easing depression.
Cannabis rosin is such a highly potent extract that results can be achieved faster, with a smaller amount.
4. Better Sleep
According to the American Sleep Association, around 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders. Insomnia can cause impaired cognitive function – including memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and low mood.
Sleeping pills in the “Z” class (zolpidem, zaleplon, and zopiclone) are commonly prescribed to people with chronic insomnia, but studies suggest that these pills can cause early-onset dementia and other serious issues with prolonged use.
Using cannabis rosin before bed helps people who suffer from insomnia fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, without the harmful side effects of sleeping pills and hypnotics.
5. Increased Appetite
Consuming cannabis to stimulate a healthy appetite is one of its more well-known uses, and it is especially helpful for those who are undergoing treatment for cancer.
The high amount of terpenes and cannabinoids found in cannabis rosin are ideal for stimulating appetite among individuals who need to eat to keep their weight at a healthier level – including those with anorexia nervosa, thyroid conditions, hepatitis, and HIV/AIDS.
