Best Strains For High Rosin Yields

Best Strains For Pressing Rosin

When it comes to rosin one thing to note is that all rosin yields are not equal. Of course having top quality equipment, such as the Ju1ceBox rosin press, can make a huge difference, but if you want to hit big yield numbers with flower rosin you have to select the right strains.

You’ll want to focus on strains that offer massive trichome production. Another key to pressing quality rosin is how resinous your plants are in general. Remember, the more resinous it is, the more rosin you’ll yield. While indica and hybrids tend to be the best choice, some sativas are worth pressing as well.

Here are a few of each that you should consider making into rosin:
