How to Process your Rosin Chips
Hello! We hope everyone has had a killer week. In our attempt to educate the masses about Rosin and DIY infusions, the next chaper in our Rosin workshop series will be what to do with your pressed chips.
This past weekend was the Michigan Cannabis Cup. We set up with Dabstars and live pressed/dabbed at the booth. When I was cleaning up I found a small stash of pressed chips from the weekend.
The following is a small tutorial on how I process Rosin chips.
It's pretty simple really, I just take my pressed chips and soak/submerge them in MCT oil. I usually let them sit for a few days to a week on the window sil in my kitchen. If it's nice out, I'll set the mason jar on a warm surface and let it sun bake for a few hours. Here is what the process looks like.

I'm sending labs off to Proverde today as I've always wondered what this sort of infusion tests at.
These were all what I would consider good to top quality flowers, which would usually produce a 70%+ concentrate.
