A Library of Terps: Terp Kooler & An Updated Storage Strategy For All Hash and Hash Rosin Products

Updated: Nov 12, 2022

​​After a few years on the hash and rosin racing circuit of Northern California, the pit-crew developed a list of consumer SOP's taking the top google search result queries. What a competitive edge that is, but there remain a few things missing and some areas to narrow in on. The guys at Terp Kooler were cool enough to send this fridge for critical analysis, and an updated word on solventless storage strategies.

It isn't often that I'm pleasantly delighted. For all things cannabis related, expectations further decrease, making my newest Terp Library an astonishing surprise. Longtime followers will remember our budget mini-fridge from Target (which now lives in my car) and will be happy to hear she's still running beautifully. However, this Terp Kooler is a big upgrade, improving on almost everything the budget option entailed, including in many ways you would never have noticed without some first-hand use.


Cannabis For Consumption

Let us begin by reminding everyone that cannabis is both a living plant and a consumable. Not much different than lettuce, celery, or any other type of produce, the plant and its solventless products should be thought of and handled like food. While refrigeration is always recommended, several styles of hash rosin were formulated with shelf-stability in mind.


Rosin Badder/Cold Cure/Rosin Jam or Rosin Sauce

Things have simplified as we have reached a better understanding over the past several years. While your cold cure or rosin badder is best suited in refrigeration, it will not change in texture or appearance and will hold up outside of refrigeration whenever necessary. Rosin Jam does not require refrigeration, but again it’s recommended if or when possible. Rosin Jam is intended to be shelf stable and nothing will change or be noticeable either way. Cold storage for bulk purchases is recommended, as the Terp Kooler is perfect for these styles of rosin.


Extinguish Condensation

The Terp Kooler is King for all things Cold Cure Rosin Badder/Jam/Sauce and is perfect for maintaining your Library of Terps. Unlike the cheap mini fridge options that develop a good deal of condensation, the Terp Kooler stays bone dry. No more destroyed labels and packaging leading to mixed up jars or needing to sponge water from the bottom. Just in case it does create condensation, a small tray in the bottom keeps it away from your jars (those looking to increase the humidity can utilize this tray slot to introduce more moisture into the air). Small things that make for effective use go a long way.

Beautifully Displayed Terps

The addition of several glass shelves differentiate the bottom from the lowest shelf and provides a stunning display for your jars. It also has three shelves unlike cheaper models. The Terp Kooler also comes with an internal light controlled by a button on the door. Altogether it makes for a beautiful display of everything inside. For the impeccable quality of modern hash, the Terp Kooler is quite fitting to house and show off your precious resins.

Right next to the light button are temperature controls. It’s recommended that you keep it on the coldest settings as temperatures range from 46℉ on up. Testing the fridge with a kitchen thermometer, it stays just under 49℉. This is perfect for maintaining all styles of rosin mentioned above.


Convenient Charging Points

Before covering storage for fresh press rosin and ice water hash, the three USB ports on top of the Terp Kooler appeared to have little use at first. Once I realized its the perfect set up to hold and charge my
