Everything You Need to Know About Rosin Micron Bags!
Rosin Micron bags
With the world of cannabis ever changing, those of us keeping an insight on the industry have seen its fast paced evolution happen right before our eyes! From old school flower grown straight from the ground, all the way to high end concentrates created using scientific methods to extract all of the active oil compounds that make up the cannabis plant. Most notability being, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), while leaving behind all of the non-wanted plant material.
One of the newest forms of cannabinoid extraction is known as rosin, a process that uses heat and pressure to separate the cannabis plant from the oil, by the use of a Rosin Micron Bag.
What is a Rosin Micron Bag?
A Rosin Micron bag is a sown bag composed of NYLON mesh that acts as the filtration system to separate the cannabis plant from the cannabinoid oils that are desired. Much like a coffee filter, these bags come in different grates that are measured in Micron units. These bags can be cut into various lengths and widths depending on the size needed for use.
Understanding Micron Units
A micron is a unit of measure in the metric system equal to 1 millionth of a meter in length (about 39 millionths of an inch). The average cross-section of a human hair is 50 micron, and the human eye cannot see anything smaller than 40 microns in size.
50 microns – Diameter of a human hair
40 microns – Lower limit of visibility of a human eye 25 microns – White blood cells
8 microns – Red blood cells
2 microns – Bacteria
How to use a Rosin Micron Bag?
Rosin Micron Bags come flat in their packaging, and must be turned inside out, which will then resemble a pouch/pillow shape. At this point, you then take your desired material, break it down into a small form, fill the Micron bag and fold over the edge so none of your product will leave the bag during the press. You then place this bag within the rosin press, and compress the plates, once the plates compress, the heat from the plates and the pressure from the press then presses out all of the oils from the cannabis flower, through the holes in the Micron Bag and THATS IT! You have fresh rosin!
What size Rosin Micron Bag do I Use ?
Rosin Bags come in a variety of micron sizes, most commonly these bags range between 25u and 180u, and the different sizes dictate what type of material will be used with it.
25u-90u: used with finer materials, such as Dry Sift, Water/bubble Hash
90u-180u: used for cannabis trim or flower.
Rosin is breaking into the cannabis industry with a Big Bang! There are many pros to Rosin over other extracts that are available, due to its process, Rosin is one of the only extraction method that DOES NOT use solvents in order to separate the cannabis oils from the plant. Which is why, Rosin Micron Bags are more than just a part of the rosin process, but one of the most important, as this piece of material makes all the difference in your cannabis consumption!
