As thousands of YouTube videos illustrate, the process of extracting rosin at home can be messy and inefficient. That’s why the good folks at Walmart—yes, that Walmart—want to spare cannabis lovers from using hair straighteners and other ad hoc tools.
Alongside its virtual aisles of firearms and Febreze, the world’s largest retailer just added a rosin press. It doesn’t seem too shy about it, either. On its website (the press is only available online) Walmart describes the Rosineer RNR-MV1 as a “dab machine.”
The $299 price tag—free shipping!—includes a “dabber tool” and silicone container to carry and handle your, ahem, plant extracts. As the description reads: “Hair straightener or flat iron is hard to get enough wax and waste your buds [sic].”
Walmart’s desire to jump on board was fed by the fact that Amazon carries the same item, according to Bob Lee, a spokesman for the machine’s Bellevue, WA-based manufacturer, Rosineer.
“Walmart wants to compete with Amazon in any way, so they started to carry the rosin press late last year,” Lee told Leafly. Walmart didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
