1: Quality is King, Followed By Freshness
This sounds like a no-brainer but time and time again we talk to customers who are pressing flower and are getting average results. Almost always it’s because they are squishing average flowers, which is perfectly fine, but if you want stellar results, you need stellar material. This doesn’t mean that you have to go purching High Quality Flower or Pollen, but with rosin, your results are mostly predetermined in the garden if your press is up to par. Quality is also closely related to freshness, and you will often see your very best results when pressing flowers as soon after they are dried and cured as possible. The longer you wait, the darker it will be, so make sure to squish buds when they’re as fresh as possible.
Similarly, we have not noticed perceptible differences between the flower rosin pressed from hydro, soil, coco, etc grown flowers – the grow media plays a factor inasmuch as the skill of the grower is the biggest determination with each particular substrate. That being said, some strains and types of flowers do tend to yield better than others. When it comes down to it, the biggest determination for yield, flavour, and quality is all based on how well the material was grown and how strong its genetics were in the first place.
2: Relative Humidity Makes or Breaks Yields
Another major factor that we determined after many flower rosin presses is that the humidity and moisture content of your buds will make a massive difference for your flower rosin yields. The reason for this is that if your Flower is very dry, it will act like a sponge when the trichomes are liquefied, thus soaking up much of the rosin before it has a chance to escape. When you press your flowers, always make sure the relative humidity content of your material is at least 55% to 62% for optimal results.
3: Choose a Temperature Based On Your Desired Results
Temperature is perhaps the most debated variable in the rosin pressing equation today, with fierce proponents on both sides of the spectrum (hotter vs. colder pressing). When you apply heat and pressure to your flower, the speed and consistency in which the trichomes liquefy depends greatly on what temperature is being used, as well as the evenness of that heat distribution. Generally, there are two accepted ranges within which to press virtually any type of rosin.
Cold Pressing: 160°F – 190°F, pressed for between 1 and 5 minutes or longer, which often produces a budder or batter consistency. Rich terpene preservation, but sometimes with a sacrifice in yield.
Hot Pressing: 190°F – 220°F, pressed for between :45 seconds and 3 minutes, which frequently produces a very oily or shatter-like consistency. High terpene preservation if pressed at 220°F or below, often accompanying an increase in yield over cold pressing.
In our opinion, we have found the most success around the 210°F – 220°F range which offers a great compromise between quality and yield. If terpene preservation and quality is your #1 goal, you should probably start colder and evaluate your results, however we have observed very little terpene loss in that range. Above 235°F however there can be noticeable losses in flavour and terpenes, but we have customers who swear by pressing at as high as 250°F.

4: Choose The Correct Micron Bag
First and foremost, you can absolutely press flower rosin without a bag if you want, but you are liable to get little bits and pieces of plant material in your rosin on the other end. If you are pressing a rosin filter bag however, getting the right micron screen size is essential in order to strike a great yield-to-quality ratio. The rule of thumb we stick by is that you should never press flower rosin in anything less than 90 micron width. Below that, you can compromise your yield without getting noticeable gains in quality. Similarly, anything above 150 micron width tends to not filter that well, so reductions in quality may be realized. The relationship between micron type and material type is very important, because the higher the micron count, the more porous the mesh filter is.
37 Micron: Designed for Dry Sift and pollen
90 Micron: best filtration and highest quality output for flower rosin, some reduction in yield
120 Micron: best overall micron filter type for flower rosin, a great sweet spot for yield and quality
160 Micron: Best if the Plant Material is wet and has not been cured but we do recommending drying and curing at 55% then using a 120 Micron
Also, always make sure if you’re pressing in a bag to use 100% polyester monofilament filter mesh, which is the most conducive for yields while also being one of the FDA’s top recommended food grade fabrics. Stainless steel screens are prone to scratching plates and cutting yields, whereas silk screens stretch a significant amount, making it difficult to accurately track your pressure data.
Total available pressure: 12 Tons or 24,000 lb / f
Bag used: 2” x 4 ” or 12 square inches
24,000 / 8 = 3,000 PSI at the plate. Of Course you may not need this much pressure so the gauge is crucial we have recommended Pressures for different amount of flowers
3.5G – 6.9G of flower – 500 – 1500 PSI 3.5g bag (1.1g-3.5g) = 1.5″-1.6”Diameter ( Recommend 210’F @ 90 Seconds )
7G – 13.9G of Flower – 1000 – 2400 PSI 7g bag (3.6g-7g) = 2″-2.2”Diameter ( Recommend 210’F @ 90 Seconds )
14G – 28G of Flower – 2000 – 4300 PSI 14g bag (7.1g-14g) = 2.4″-2.7″Diameter ( Recommend 210’F @ 90 Seconds )
As the micron gets smaller the diameter gets larger, this is the reason for the variance in the diameter numbers above. We prefer to use 160 micron for fresh flower, as flower drys we go down in micron screen size (for dry flower use 90 micron). Micron size determines the diameter (surface area) of the FUG Rosin bag. For Flower of 1g and smaller no bag is necessary.
We Recommend BTS style of pressing Flowers this is where you invert the corners of the bag to create a puck once pressed
From our experience, many strains will press very nicely at around 1000 – 1500 psi per inch of material being pressed in the lower temp range of 190 – 215 degrees.
Flower rosin, when pressed from top quality material, is some of our absolute favourite to dab and squish. The terpene preservation often rivals or exceeds live resin, which is almost always faithfully represented from buds to oil in the rosin pressing process.
