If you love cannabis extracts, you’re probably looking for a better way to experience each strain’s unique sensation, cadence, and flavor profile! Live Resin is a luxurious way to explore everything the cannabis plant offers. Here’s all the critical information you need to know when shopping for Live Resin at a dispensary.
What is Live Resin?
Live Resin is a full-spectrum cannabis concentrate. You’ll find live resin right beside other extracts like shatter, wax, and honey, but it is a bit different than these distillates. Products marked live resin have all the original cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant. That’s what makes them full spectrum cannabis wax.
Live resin is best for dabbing and vaping. Some people tell us they like to add it to their bowls and joints to increase their potency. It will get the job done, but live resin is best when enjoyed through indirect heating methods. This way, they retain their full taste and smell.
What Is The Difference Between Live Resin and Live Rosin?
Live Resin is a full-spectrum cannabis concentrate. Live Rosin is a full melt bubble hash. Extracted from flash-frozen (rather than cured) plant matter, they both contain a strain’s complete profile of terpenes and cannabinoids. Both products are ideal for people who enjoy robust and nuanced cannabis flavors.
Is Live Resin Stronger Than Dabs?
Not exactly. Strength most likely refers to THC content. More potent extracts will have a higher percentage of THC and a lower percentage of CBD. Live resins will not necessarily have a higher THC content than any other kind of dab. However, the flavor difference between live resin and distillate is astronomical. Because live resin contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes, the high tends to feel more distinct to each strain.
Is Live Resin The Same as Cannabis Wax?
Live resin is a cannabis extract and comes in various textures like wax, shatter, sugar, sauce, and badder. However, live resin products contain extract from flash-frozen rather than dried cannabis plants.
Typical cannabis wax is made by extracting distillate from a cured plant that has been dried upside down. The harvesting and BHO extraction process can damage a plant’s natural compounds. Creating distillate is more efficient, which means dispensaries can offer it at a lower price. Many people never notice a difference because terpene extracts are often added back, mimicking each strain’s original profile.
Live Resin, however, is harvested from flash-frozen cannabis plants. Flash freezing preserves the trichome crystals, which means we retain most of the plant’s innate flavors and compounds. Cannabis enthusiasts tell us they prefer live resin because the natural bouquet “is the best for dabs.”
Does Live Resin Make You High?
Yes! Live resin will make you high. It is a great way to experience the full flavors, aromas, and sensations of each individual cannabis strain.
What is the Benefit of Live Resin?
Making live resin is much more complicated, expensive, and extensive than traditional cannabis distillates. However, these three benefits make live resins worth the cost.
- Flavors and Aromas: Live Resin contains the full spectrum of cannabis compounds giving each strain a varied taste and sensation.
- Therapeutic Compounds: Full spectrum oils retain their therapeutic compounds. Called cannabinoids, these compounds affect our bodies through the endocannabinoid system. More research is needed to understand their specific therapeutic benefits. Still, we already know that cannabinoids like THC and CBD work with our bodies to make us feel high.
- Nuanced sensations: The same compounds that give cannabis its therapeutic benefits also impact how it will make you feel. Is it in your head or your body? Do you feel creative or quiet? Your high is colored by the strain’s balance of terpenes and cannabinoids.
