What's the Difference Between Fresh-Pressed and Cold Cure?

What’s your favorite consistency?

There’s a common debate in the cannabis space amongst rosin connoisseurs. Is it better to buy fresh-pressed or cold cure? The truth is, there’s no right or wrong answer — it’s all a matter of personal preference.

When rosin is fresh-pressed, that means it’s going directly from the parchment to the jar and maintaining that glassy, shatter-like consistency. When you’re talking about cold cure, that means the fresh-pressed rosin is stored in a jar, left to cure, and agitated until it becomes a wet-batter consistency.

Fresh-pressed rosin’s biggest drawback is why some purists prefer it: it’s not shelf-stable at room temperature. And some strains can butter up in the fridge depending on the volatility. But again, some people prefer to watch their rosin journey through the different stages and create cold cure on their own. There’s also a lot of evidence to suggest cold cure brings out a totally different terp profile and allows you to experience the same cultivar in different ways.

For us, it’s a simple decision. We want to get our customers the product in the purest, most un-altered way possible. Until we can get our entire fleet access to reliable refrigerators, we’re sticking with cold cure. Without the proper infrastructure, your rosin comes buttered up. It’s happened to us countless times and we hate that. Cold cure allows us to get you rosin without the risk of terp profiles being altered during transport. When the time is right, you know we’ll be bringing the best (and freshest) fresh-pressed in California straight to your doorstep. Who should we bring to the menu on the solventless side of things?
