live resin is a cannabis concentrate made from flower that hasn’t been cured or dried like the majority of cannabis products to retain the terpenes and flavors. Instead, freshly picked buds are frozen immediately after harvest to preserve the full flavor profile of the strain before extraction.
What’s so bad about dried cannabis flower? Nothing! However, it’s been shown that cannabis left to cure for a week at room temperature loses 31% of its terpenes.
Live resin is available in a wide array of products because it ranges in viscosity; mostly due to terpene concentration. You’ll commonly find live resin in oil cartridges, butters, sugars, and sauces.
How is live resin made ?
Immediately after harvest, whole-plant material is frozen and kept at sub-zero temperatures to preserve the terpenes and flavor profile of the live flower.
On its own, live resin sauce is not viscous enough to work in vape carts or pods (and the sauce fraction of live resin is also very low in THCa potency). So we’ve formulated our live-resin productswith a base of pure and potent distillate oil that gives it the proper consistency for vaporization. But, why distillate oil?
- Because it’s super potent.
- Distillate oil has no flavor or scent on its own, so allows the flavor of the live-resin sauce we add to truly shine through.
