Not so long ago, getting concentrates meant a trip to the dispensary. For some, that trip took a lot longer than others. The idea of making concentrates at home carried not only a learning curve but plenty of dangers. BHO extraction accidents sizzled across headlines, and people’s homes and bodies paid the price. But thankfully, Rosin press technology came to light, promising not only safer and cheaper extraction but better quality and flavor. Want to make your own concentrates? Here are some of the best presses around.
