If you press your own rosin then you will find this article an absolute life hack. This is because making vape carts from rosin practically means that you can dab on the go, while being discreet and no one suspecting a thing!
Let’s first understand what exactly Rosin is… it is a cannabis extract which is made using heat and pressure. Cannabis plant material is usually placed in a press with heated plates, then compressed, squeezing out hot oil. The process is completely solventless. This process was actually originally used to create rosin for violin bows, which is where this concentrate gets its name.
The process of extracting rosin takes little to no time and will have your rosin ready in minutes. Once finished it doesn’t require any extra steps to purify or dilute the extracted oil. Making it a super simple method, and anyone can make rosin at home with a few household tools, or with a press, to learn how to make rosin read this article.

If we are going to go through how to make a Rosin Vape Cart then we should find out what exactly a Vape Cartridge is first. It’s a glass cartridge that is pre-filled with a gram or half-gram of cannabis oil. This oil contains various combinations of cannabinoids and terpenes extracted from cannabis.
Vape carts are great because they are pretty much lots of individual dabs loaded into one tiny cartridge, allowing you to take hits all day, anywhere! They are incredibly portable, lightweight and very discreet. If anyone sees you with a vape cart, chances are they will assume it’s normal vape juice!
Most oil vape carts are high in THC, however, more and more CBD-dominant vape cartridges are entering the market, as are 1:1 THC:CBD products. Vape cartridges come in many forms, such as 510-threaded cartridges (the most common), as well as some individual brand cartridges, our Nectar Hive and Hive Pods are a great example!
Now, onto the good part – the actual method. When it comes to making your Rosin into a vape cart, there are actually a few different ways that you can do it. You can also mix and match some of the methods together if you like. Here they are:
