Other benefits users report pain relief and an improvement in mood to combat depression which makes this a common strain to be used in the medical marijuana community. The genetic history on this one is a bit of a mystery though, which isn’t surprising considering how long it’s been around.

Getting its name from the wax-like substance that is rubbed into the bows of classical stringed musical instruments, Rosin is a similar looking compound with a MUCH different purpose. Cannabis Rosin is a newish extraction that’s produced via a combination of high pressure and heat. An admittedly simplistic process that produces a rich full profile product, Rosin is so simple that a crude form of it can be produced with a bit of cannabis and a hair straightener. It’s been catching on quickly mainly due to its simplicity and purity as there are no solvents involved. Live Rosin is becoming a true connoisseur’s dream as it has some of the richest Terpenes and Flavonoids out of any extraction on the market today.
The most common form of shatter on the market today uses what’s known as BHO extraction (Butane Hash Oil). Butane as you might be familiar with is used in lighters, it’s a combustible gas made from fossil fuels. Cannabis is mixed with butane in its liquid form which then dissolves the cannabis fats and oils into the butane, creating a mixture that is high in THC but also still containing the gas. A purging process to remove the butane must then be undertaken which given the amount of time dedicated to it can remove all or just most of the butane. These traces of butane left in the final extraction aren’t exactly healthy and they detract from the true flavour of the strain. This purging process also removes a large amount of Terpenes as they easily evaporate away if raised in temperature. As an added concern about BHO it is an explosive gas and there have been cases of labs being improperly handled and serious harm or even death can be a result of mistakes in handling the gas.
With less involved in the whole process and no chemicals added in Rosin is an obviously healthier choice, it’s a simple pure product. BHO produces some high THC extractions and it’s not going to kill you now or anytime soon but that’s all it’s designed to do, produce really high amounts of THC. There’s more to extractions and shatter than just the THC content and Rosin is the best full profile method to experience it all. Another option for extraction is the Supercritical CO2 extraction method, this method uses extremely high pressures and Carbon Dioxide gas at extremely low temperatures to extract cannabis oils. CO2 extractions produce a better cleaner product than BHO but they come in second to Rosin when it comes to a full flavourful profile extract. Additionally Rosin preserves other trace compounds found in the plants which are the key to the flavour of Cannabis Extracts. In short Shatter may offer you a higher THC product while rosin will offer you a complete product and more balanced high, while the price of rosins is typically about 50% more expensive than shatter.
This South Coast exclusive strain is the culmination of decades of breeding and tweaking to produce the pinnacle of Kush strains. No one else has the dedication and experience to produce a strain like this and South Coast has nailed this one, accept no substitutes. Said to be a combination of Pink Kush hybrid and the pure Indica of Bubba Kush, this strain is the absolute KING of relaxation. Produced organically in the pristine Sunshine Coast BC this Rosin has beautiful Terpenes with a full flavour profile that will leave you feeling stress free while not getting you too sleepy.
A multi award winning strain that lives up to all the hype it gets, Gorilla Glue #4 is a supremely potent Hybrid that’s in a league of its own. Pulling all the best charactistics from its parent strains, Sour Dub, Chocolate Diesel and Chem’s Sister, this flower has a powerful pungent nose with earthy and sour notes that take over the room. Get ready for some serious relaxation time as a wave of happiness and euphoria take hold and keep you melted and chill. GG#4 has been put to the test and passed with flying colours as it took home first place in both the Michigan, Los Angeles Canabis cups in 2014 and then getting first again in the High Times Jamaican World Cup, this hybrid takes no prisoners.
