CannaPlates THCA Pictorial Guide

Updated September 30, 2019

Introduction to THCA:
There are many methods (times and pressures and techniques) to mechanically separating THCA from rosin. Most work well. Some do not. This is the one I use, as I have had consistent success with it.

CannaPlates THCA guide is only a guide. Your results may vary, as mine have, in this not so cheap adventure. Hopefully I have borne most of the cost of this adventure, so that you don't have to make the same mistakes. Thca is made by separating the components of the rosin. The mild heat and mild pressure of this process, causes the thca to separate from the rosin and solidify into a chalk like form, that snaps like drywall.

To begin with you need the right kind of rosin. Rosin that is clear or shatter like or runny will not work. Do not try to use these kinds of rosin and expect results. You will not get them. The rosin MUST be cakey. It must be chunky like ..well ... chunky peanut butter that has dried out.
The more crumbly you can get your rosin the better off you will be.

The return rate on this process is quite low, while the process I use gives a better than average return, so it can get expensive, but the payoff is melting your face off good. I have found on average, that you will get 1/3 of your weight back in THCA using this method, if done reasonably well.

 

 Have fun!

  • @chris I am RE-PRESSING flower rosin. This is not bubble hash rosin. Bubble hash rosin you are best to just let it do its thing in the jar.

  • Are you telling me that what’s left in the bag, AFTER the press is the THCA? It was my understanding that the THC was pressed out, and then that is collected and left to sit in a jar for a week with a bit of heat to it. The THCA crystals then begin to form.

    Please correct my ignorance, i thought we left the hash bricks behind b/c the cannabinoids were pressed out?
