What is Rosin?

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.

Using the Heat Cure Method to Make Vape Carts from Rosin

This method is the simplest because it requires the least equipment out of all the other methods and is definitely the easiest as it can’t go wrong! All you need is:


  1. First, make sure you have all your equipment ready. Preheat your oven to anywhere between 90-120°C. Transfer your rosin into the glass jar and put the lid on.
  2. Once the oven is heated, place your glass jar filled with rosin in the center of your oven. Make sure that the lid is on the jar and close the oven door.
  3. Put on a timer for anywhere between 20 minutes to over an hour, the process can always take a different amount of time depending on the thickness of your rosin. You will need to keep a close eye on the jar during the process.
  4. The reason why you must keep a close eye on the jar during this time is because the actual rosin will be what indicates when it is finished. While in the oven being heated up, you will see bubbles begin to form a rise up – the cure should be finished when you do not see any more bubble forming.
  5. Once the bubbling has stopped, it means that your rosin is ready to take out! Carefully remove the jar from the oven and use a heat proof glove or cloth to remove the lid from the jar – be very careful not to burn yourself or to knock the jar over!
  6. At this point, you can add in terpene drops if you desire, or you can leave it with it’s natural terps. If you decide to add terps then stir them in to ensure it is fully distributed.
  7. Now you need to use your syringe to pull all the rosin from the jar, and then transfer it into your empty vape cartridge. Do not overfill it. Once it is full make sure you put the cap straight on to prevent any spillages or leaks!
  8. You have now made your rosin cart – it is pretty much ready to go, just attach it to your vape and enjoy!
