The Revolution of Solventless Cannabis Extracts
Cannabis extracts have evolved. Solvent based extracts are slowly losing their top spot as solventless concentrates like Live Rosin begin to take over. But why is rosin so popular?

In this episode he shares how it's made, why it's so much better than your average butane-based wax or shatter, how it is evolving into new and innovative products, the future of extraction and more.

How to Ruin Your Weed with a Paper Bag
People have some whacky ways for curing cannabis, but a paper bag ain’t the way to do it!
When it comes to cannabis, there’s a lot that Chip Baker and Justin Jones can agree on. But when it comes to curing your cannabis in a brown paper bag, the two are at odds. To Chip, it’s a figment of the past that’s best left there, and age old drying technique before the days of plastic bags and bins. For Justin, it’s a quick and easy way to finish out the drying process that works for him.
This week on The Real Dirt, Justin Jones returns to talk about why he likes the paper bag method, how the cannabis industry has evolved and matured in Oregon, how it compares to Colorado and Oklahoma and more!
