The brave new world of solventless infused edible cannabis
As legalization has grown more people than ever are consuming a variety of cannabis products, and while smoking is the longest standing consumption method, new trends are constantly emerging. For instance, smoking and vaping are falling out of favor with the more health conscious among us, especially this year when aggravating your lungs or sharing a joint are big no-no’s. However, that just means people are pivoting toward edibles, especially now that we’ve all got a lot of extra time on our hands.
Solventless Infused Edibles
Whether you’re adding cannabis to cookies, brownies, gummies or even infused drinks, cannabis concentrates are fantastic for blending into food. While solvent based extracts like BHO and CO2 oil have become the norm for making edibles, many cannabis enthusiasts just aren’t fans of chemical additions, which is why solventless edibles have arrived on the scene.

Thanks to its gooey nature, solventless rosin is fantastically easy to add to food and drinks, especially using something like the Magical Butter. In fact, you don’t need to make complicated cannabutter or RSO, because just by gently warming your rosin, it can be effortlessly added to almost any recipe you can image.
Furthermore, infusing edibles with rosin is also great for accurate dosage, meaning that you can dial in the strength of your edibles to suit your tolerance.
