Rosin extraction is safe and easy for both home and commercial growers because it doesn’t require any solvents with which to extract cannabinoids, nor does it require extensive safety measures like some other extraction methods do. But for rosin extraction to be most efficient — and produce the highest yield — professionally designed rosin presses are ideal. Today, rosin presses can be found in almost any shape, size, form, and capacity. Here are some of our favorite rosin presses for both commercial and personal use.
NugSmasher Pro Press — Rosin Press
The NugSmasher Pro is a 20-ton pneumatic/manual Rosin Press that comes equipped with some of the best features in the industry. Its outer appearance looks interesting regarding aesthetics, and it has impressive features. You’ll be paying a pretty penny, but, especially in this instance, you’ll be getting exactly what you’re paying for. With an unmatched warranty and good reviews, the NugSmasher Pro looks promising.
One of the most notable features of this unit is its 7″ x 10″ pressing plates. They’re massive in size and can press a large quantity of material during a single pressing session. To suit everyone’s needs, the NugSmasher Pro can be outfitted with any of 3 standard plate configurations. You can also custom order plates to a specific size that would better suit your purposes. This unit also sports a built-in plate pressure gauge as well as custom alignment racks. The NugSmasher Pro comes equipped with two LED screens that are built into a solid steel frame. Furthermore, you can control the digital timer and digital temperature control from the LCD screens.
The Pikes Peak V2 Rosin Press is one of the most durable, innovative, user-friendly presses available today. Updated for 2017, the Pikes Peak Rosin Press comes with all-new touchscreen controls.The fully-enclosed pneumatic system means there is very little risk of contaminants from oils and other debris, and two sets of legs allow for operation both vertically and horizontally helping to accommodate space restrictions.

HEMP OIL / MEDICINAL CANNABIS OIL
Hemp oil / Medicinal Cannabis Oil, which is produced by mechanically pressing the hemp seeds, is not to be confused with either hemp essential oil (which is brought about through distilling hemp leaves and blossoms), or with hashish (cannabis) oil (which forms as a resin extract from the resin of the plant). Unlike hemp extract, hemp seeds contain hardly any THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), and thus cause no intoxication.
Careful harvesting and a mechanical pressing / oil pressing are indispensable for obtaining high quality hemp oil from the hemp seeds. The seed is protected by its tough shell from environmental factors such as oxygen and sunlight. In order to produce oil from the seeds, they must be pressed in an oil mill with the aid of a screw press/ oil press. Most suitable for this is the cold-pressing process/ oil press, since the oil temperature here (with hemp) should be between 40° C and 60° C, so that the hemp oil’s valuable contents are not damaged or reduced through the heat. With an oil content of 30-35%, hemp yields 180 to 350 liters of oil per hectare.
Characteristics and shelf life
The color varies according to the type of production. Cold-pressed hemp oil is greenish yellow, while warm-pressed oil is rather dark green; oil extracted with benzene and carbon disulphide has a brownish yellow tinge, and oil extracted with diethyl ether has an intense yellow color. Hemp oil smells herbal and fragrant, possessing a raw nutty aroma.
The taste varies from nutty to herbal.
The flash point is between 170 and 220° C; the melting point, from approximately -25 to -15°C.
In addition to containing diverse plant substances,such as chlorophyll, carotinoids and vitamins, hemp oil is composed largely of fatty acids (over 80% are unsaturated). Above all, the polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3) linoleic acid, α-linoleic acid, and the rare γ-linoleic acid contained in the oil are particularly important for a healthy diet.
Hemp oil stored in a dark bottle in a cool place will have a shelf life of six to nine months.
Pharmaceutical and medical uses
Due to its high percentage of mono-and polyunsaturated fatty acids, hemp oil is also readily used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. It is successfully used, for example, to help treat high cholesterol, allergies, and arteriosclerosis, according to the Lexikon der pflanzlichen Fette und Öle (lexicon of plant fats and oils). Because it contains high amounts of important polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially α-linolenic acid and the rare γ-linolenic acid, it can also be used for dietary purposes, to deliver essential fatty acids to the body during a fat-restricted diet. In addition, it can be used therapeutically, to heal vascular disease for example, since the polyunsaturated fatty acids positively affect the cell membranes and thereby the elasticity of the vessels and the fluidity of the blood. Thus it strengthens the vascular system and prevents harmful plaque. What is more, it can also prevent the formation of blood clots (according to the Lexikon der pflanzlichen Fette und Öle).
Beyond this, the γ-linolenic acid contained in hemp oil, according to the Lexikon der plfanzlichen Fette und Öle, has an important significance in the formation of prostaglandin, an anti-inflammatory, and can also be effective against neurodermatitis, skin diseases, and psoriasis. It also aids in reducing diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and various chronic inflammations, as well as in reducing the risk of heart attack.
Further positive characteristics of hemp oil, according to Günter A. Ulmer’s book Heilende Öle (healing oils), are as an antispasmodic in epileptic attacks, multiple sclerosis, and chronic pain, thus also being able to positively affect the wellbeing of cancer and AIDS patients.
In the cosmetic industry
The high portion of unsaturated fatty acids, most especially linolenic acid and α-linolenic acid, lends it a strong lubricating property, making it very suitable for skin and hair, which is why it is readily used in cosmetic products. It is used particularly in products for rough, irritated or scaly skin, since the special fatty acids contained in the hemp oil stave off dehydration and tearing of the skin, as well as prevent excessive moisture loss. Moreover, this oil constitutes a very good softener for skin and hair, giving it wide application in the development of massage oil, ointments, creams, soaps, and also shampoos.
This oil is also employed in the natural cosmetic industry, since, owing to its pesticide-free cultivation, it contains no toxic residues.
Hemp oil finds yet another field of application as technical oil in industry. Here it serves as a resource for the production of detergents, due to its high percentage of triacylglycerides. Through various chemical processes (saponification, ethoxylation, and sulfation), different resources such as soaps, emulsifiers, solvents, care nutrients, and surfactants can be produced for the cleaning industry, all having the advantage of being easily biodegradable. Furthermore, its gliding property allows it to serve in the production of printing ink, paints, and varnishes; and it is also employed in the manufacture of wood preservatives, lubricants, and wax crayons.
Particularly in the East it is still used today as lamp oil, because it burns especially brightly and, when combined with essential hemp oil, develops the aroma characteristic of hemp.
In the kitchen
Due to its fatty acid spectrum, which contains all the essential fatty acids important for human health, hemp oil ranks as one of the best and most nutritionally valuable plant oils and readily finds culinary usage. It is used chiefly to prepare salads, dressings, sauces, marinades, and spreads for bread. Its relatively low smoke point of 165° C, however, prevents it from being suitable for grilling or deep-frying, since the fatty acids would otherwise break down at higher temperatures and thereby alter the taste of the oil. In contrast, it is quite safe to use hemp oil for braising and steaming.
