What am I doing wrong here?

I've now got a flat, slightly sticky puck of weed but no rosin. I heated the straighteners until they felt hot to the touch and pressed down with all my bodyweight for about 5 seconds. There's a slight shimmery bit of oil on the paper but it's absolutely fuck all!!

Could it be that the buds just not oily enough?

could be the heat and and pressure, 

 

i got poor returns on my first few presses till i heated the plates up more then pressure was`nt really a issue as im about 15 1/2 stone but my wrists where fooked after squishing for about 1 hour lol playing about, 

 

keep playing about bud you will get there, but if the starting material is`nt that good your not going to get much anyways,

 

you got a pics of starting material?

 

 

and pre pressing in a garlic press helped me get the most out of the product

i didnt get anything my first few tries m8 just keep fiddling and u will find that sweet spot, the puck u made snap it in half and put it on top of other half the fold that in half so u have 4 quaters then get squishing again keep putting it in fresh squares of paper. check the paper by moving it in the light to see if u have any shiny bits ( put paper in fridge for a bit when your trying to get the oil

Right well misses krazys put that puck in the grinder and smoked it now lol She's looking quite sleepy hahahahaha

I'm gonna have to get some more bud as we're down to our last bit now.

Will nail this though. And pressure isn't an issue either. 100 kilos pressing down has to be enough.

I did get a few shiny bits on the paper but as I said earlier it's as good as fuck all

more heat then bud, 

 

my self personally i press bubble, so touching and running your finger across the plates would only apply to that if you dont have a proper press , i would have them hot enough so you can just touch them with out taking ya skin off and go from there, but a lazer temp thinggy is best so you know where your at..
