    Someone sent me a bunch of dry, old crap. I ice washed it, then pressed it.

    Its vile. The resulting rosin is a very, very solid lump, like hard toffee. So I thought I'd try and separate it, to get rid of any flavour and just be left with the THCA.

    I cannot get this to separate, even when double bagged with 15u bags! Interesting. I assumed because it was a solid lump, it would be more likely to separate, but I guess I was wrong :)

    19 months then, eh! Sorry, I quoted your post from a different thread :D

    Did you squish any of it 19 months ago? If so, do you remember if the rosin here is much different to the rosin you got back then?

    Do you typically store vacuum sealed herb with a boveda pack? If so what % do you recomend?

    I do use Bovedas, 62% along with oxy absorber satchels and a hygrometer to keep an eye on things. The funny thing is all my digital humidity gauges read about 65%, never any mold so all OK but it has had me thinking of trying the 58% Bovedas...but if it aint broke why try and fix it!

    So, I have some rosin that tastes like shit. Any one got any top tips that dont involve solvents for getting rid of all the flavour?

    I tried giving it the thca treatment (mechanical separation via two 15u bags), but no dice.

    Canna capsules would be the easiest :D
    If you still want to dab it that could be tricky to get rid of the flavor. With solvents you could try various chromatography medias but I definitely understand not wanting to mess with all that, that's why we press rosin in the first place. :myday:

    OK, I tried decarbing the horrible rosin a bit, to see if that would help 'burn off' some terpenes/smell. I did this just by putting the little jar the rosin is in on to the TBucket itself until it bubbled up and then take it off and let it cool. I did this twice.

    Then I remembered I had the sauce left from my thca separation (did a dab of pure sauce, holy crap that tasted amazing), and added that to the horrible stuff.

    Its worked slightly. I think if I do one more thca separation and put that sauce in the horrible stuff, it'll be usable. I dont really want to use this stuff in caps as any of that flavour coming up in burps would be vile :)

    So if I can make it taste ok and then set it one side for emergencies, that will be an acceptable outcome :)

    Are you totally committed to vaping this?

    Seems like you are desperate to use this poor quality material, and like a gambler throwing good money at a bad hand, you are tossing your good sauce at it [and diluting the quality of the good sauce in the process].

    Would you consider just using your material in some form of edible fashion, or even donating it to someone?

    I'd rather vape it than eat it tbh. And if I'm going to give it away, I'd rather it was palatable in some way.

    Time might help dilute the bad smells/taste, it does in bud curing, can't hurt to try as it sounds like you aren't short of supply.:tup:

    Yeah, thats the other thing I was thinking. I had it being kept in the freezer but took it out for just that reason :D

    Its not so much that im not short on supply, its more that everything is quite small amounts so there is no waste. This vile rosin is only like 2 grams or so, if that. I added less than half a gram of sauce to it.

    Its not throwing money away.

    EDIT: And why would I want to give away to someone something that is vile? Whats the fucking point in that? If I'm going to give something away, I want it to be good and have them enjoy the fucking experience, not nearly vomit every time they use it.

    I have a jar with 'Dropdown' written on it that I don't bother reclaiming until a smoking buddy said he would give it a try and loves it smeared on a rolly paper as he rolls a spliff, black death looking shit if you ask me, but he loves it for nightcap joints.:tup:

    Well, thats on him, his request :D

    But for the sake of a few drops of sauce, I'd rather give this away in a nicer state :) Altho, tbh, I am way more inclined to give the quality stuff away and keep the crap for myself! I think I might have that all backwards ;)

    Small lump of rosin, really solid stuff, like solid toffee, in a small jar. Hot water in the jar. Jar in the ultrasonic cleaner. Gonna change the water once a day, give it sonic clean once a day, see if it removes/leeches out the flavour.

    Can I blame lock down and boredom?
