Like @nobodyhere stated, it’s easy. I did stop smoking flower for quite awhile. Not because I didn’t like flower; rather, because it was easier to hit after my open heart surgery. Tiny hits and stoned for hours type thing. Also—like nobodyhere said—the smell of weed diminishes considerably all around when just hitting rosin. Smoking weed is very similar to smoking tobacco in the sense that it stays with you...clothes, hair, furniture, etc. Rosin doesn’t have that same effect.

Shatter and wax are normally made from butane (BHO) or alcohol extractions. Rosin is just heat and pressure. No solvents are used. There are some who say terpines are not kept as well, but I don’t have any issues with the taste of rosin whatsoever. It’s like candy IMO.

Is this going to ruin smoking flower for me? LOL
Absolutely not. I still love smoking flower, and am about to roll a fat pineapple express blunt for tonight (before I tuck my wife in after her one hit). I am not really dabbing large amounts, so a normal sized joint first of the day will get me good and blazed (at this point in time). I have had times where my tolerance was so high it would do nothing.

Sidenote - Yes Fragile on vinyl right now.

Can you go hog ass wild pressing and dabbing your entire stash in 72 hours? Yeah, prob if your 12 years old. But your not really new to smoking.

I am a functional stoner. I was in junior high, high school, then could not for work purposes for a bit, anyway, I like to maintain a level of buzz throughout the day that correlates to what I am doing that moment.

You will still like the joint or sesh when you have time for that. But when you dont have time, take a dab. Or, if you just want to get to a 3rd dimension of stoned-ness well, you have that option. There is also an argument that dabbing is better for your lungs, but that depends on quite a few variables and is a discussion for elsewhere. I absolutely will not smoke in my house and will take toes of those who do, dabbing into the carbon filter is permissible, and I have had a few outside of the closet to no ill effect.

Thanks for the great explanation of how to hit rosin. I've been thinking about getting a press and a set of plates and give it a try. Just didn't know what to do with it once I had it. I was just going to break a small piece off and pack it into a bowl but I'm wiser tonight so i thank you guys.
