As a result of the production method, which is specifically utilized to preserve terpenes, this extract is one of the most flavourful natural weed products available.
Because of this, it is quickly becoming one of the most popular products on the cannabis market.
What Is Live Resin?
To clarify, this is a full spectrum cannabis concentrate.
Full-spectrum means that the product contains the full range of cannabinoids including THC and CBD, rather than an isolated compound like pure THC or CBD.
This allows for what is referred to as the “Entourage Effect” where all the cannabinoids and terpenes work together to provide certain effects.
This extract can have a variety of colours including bright yellow, gold and brown.
The “Live” portion of the name comes from the method of extraction in which “live” cannabis plants are flash frozen or processed immediately after harvest, when they are still “Live”.
How Is Live Resin Made?
This extract is made by taking freshly harvested cannabis material and freezing it until it’s ready to be processed, or immediately extracting your resin from the live marijuana plant.
The result is the preservation of volatile terpenes and cannabinoids that degrade over time.
Similarly, the extraction process is much like shatter aside from the fresh harvested material being used. Hydrocarbons such as butane or propane are used to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis material.
The concentrated material is then purged of any impurities and then whipped up to get its texture.
Does It Get You High?
Yes, it can get you very high.
These concentrated cannabis products can reach THC levels in the high 70 percent range.
It is made up almost entirely of cannabinoids and terpenes, which also contribute to the effect of the product.
Is Live Resin Better Then Shatter And Other Extracts?
This extract is thought to be one of the best cannabis products available on the market, but much like any product, the resin is only as good as the producer and the material that is used to make.
