Australia has the unique opportunity to celebrate Oil Day twice a year due to its date format. Internationally, Oil Day is observed on July 10th (7/10) because the universal date format lists the month first followed by the day. However, in Australia, dates are written with the day first, followed by the month. This means that 7/10 translates to October 7th, allowing Australians to celebrate Oil Day both in July and again in October.

How can I extract Oil from Cannabis?

One of the most popular and accessible methods for extracting high-quality cannabis oils/wax is through the use of rosin presses. Rosin presses utilize heat and pressure to extract oil/wax from cannabis flowers or hash, resulting in a solvent-free, pure product that retains the plant's natural flavours and effects.

  3. Flavor Preservation: The process preserves the terpenes and cannabinoids, maintaining the plant's original flavor profile.

    By investing in a quality rosin press, you can enjoy the benefits of creating your own cannabis oils at home, ensuring purity and potency with every press.
