GLORIOUS LIVE RESIN
WHAT IS LIVE RESIN + HOW IS IT CREATED?
Extracting and creating cannabis extracts can have many different paths from the material used, extraction process, and finished processing. Many of these processes can unfortunately compromise the plants valuable flavors and aromas by purging terpenes and other compounds.
Live Resin cannabis extracts capture the aromas and flavors of the living plant which delivers an extremely clean and tasteful experience for the consumer. The key element in this process for this product is COLD! The freshly harvested cannabis is frozen right away which essentially captures the plant at the optimal point in its life cycle and retains the valuable terpene profile, aroma, and original flavor. Then during extraction, measures are taken to keep the material as cold as possible throughout the process.
There is no drying or curing involved for fresh frozen material and live resin extracts. A cannabis plant that goes through drying and curing can have negative impacts on the terpenes and trichomes. These impacts can take place when the plant wicks itself of moisture and chlorophyll and also if adverse conditions are present, such as: increased exposure to light, heat, oxygen, and physical agitation.
WHAT DOES LIVE RESIN LOOK LIKE?
Live Resin can come out in various yellows across the spectrum. Based on the strain and processing it can come out somewhere between a wax and a sauce. Most extracts will be very sticky so utilizing a dab tool will be very helpful in handling the product.
HOW TO STORE LIVE RESIN
Ideally when a consumer is not actively using the Live Resin it would be kept in a cool setting, like a fridge, and stored in an air-tight container. This will help preserve the great terpenes, taste, and smell for longer. You want to avoid leaving it out exposed to oxygen and warmer temperatures as much as possible.
HOW TO CONSUME LIVE RESIN
Dabbing is one of the most popular ways to consume this extract.
Dab pens are a newer and more convenient way to consume extracts using the technology from vape pens. This heats up an atomizer to the point where it vaporizes the extract into a consumable vapor. They are also very convenient for personal carry and travel.
Some people also like an added kick to their flower consumption via a blunt, joint, or bowl and will take some extract to top off the flower.
