RastaRozion is a Toronto-based rosin company comprised of two Rastafarians who both have a high respect for nature and its offerings. With over 40 years of combined experience in the cannabis field, they joined forces and launched RastaRozion in early 2017.
RastaRozion Pricing & Selection:
RastaRozion uses top quality bud in their New York Rosin Presses, producing a variety of tasty strains of rosin. Depending on the cost of the bud as well as the yield will dictate the price, but it usually ranges between $45 – $60/gram.
Unique to RastaRozion:
It was at a cannabis trade show when they first saw the emergence of “rosin” when a vendor demonstrated the process crudely with a T-Shirt press, but the concept was communicated perfectly. A way to capture the essence of any marijuana strain naturally and create a highly potent concentrate that contained all of its benefits without the use of any solvents. It was a no-brainer for this holistic duo and they were instantly inspired to get into the rosin field.
I’ve had the pleasure of trying several of their strains and have never been disappointed, so I was eager to try out and review their freshly squished Bubba Ganoush rosin!
Bubba Ganoush Smell, Texture, Taste:
Upon opening the package I was instantly hit with an intense yet familiar Bubba Kush smell. It was like opening up a big bag of fresh Bubba buds!
The strain and temperature used when squishing bud will determine the rosin’s colour, texture, potency, and terpene profile. RastaRozion is determined to keep all their presses at low temperatures, which is evident in this batch of rosin. With a ‘goopy’ yet stable consistency, this rosin had a golden brown colour reminiscent of gummy cola bottles and was very terpene-rich. My cannabinoid receptors were eager to get a taste.
Bubba Ganoush Effects:
Using an electric titanium nail set at 670 degrees Fahrenheit I dabbed a nice glob of rosin. Using lower temperatures when dabbing ensures less loss of terpenes and cannabinoids which all add to the effectiveness of the ‘high’. This dab gave a thick vapour cloud and offered a strong Kushy flavour to the palette. This was definitely one of the terpiest (is that a word?) cannabis concentrates I had smoked and its effects were just as pleasurable.
Despite my tolerance being subjected to smoking and dabbing earlier in the day, I was surprised at how strong the rosin effects were. Immediately upon exhaling I was hit with intense head effects leaving me in a euphoric and hazy state. This soon followed with physical relaxation, which was very apparent in my neck and legs.
Usually, I’m more of a two-dabber kinda guy but I was pleasantly surprised to be satisfied with just one, while I slowly melted into the couch. I found this Bubba Ganoush rosin had very strong indica effects, so it was a good thing I had few plans afterwards.
