What is Live Resin?
Live resin is a variety of Butane Hash Oil that is made from fresh cannabis plants that have been frozen immediately after harvest. Brand new cannabis plants have a different collection of terpenes than cannabis that has been cured and dried. Because of the frozen plant matter, Live Resin contains more water content than marijuana concentrates made from dried cannabis plants. Live resin must be extracted at low temperatures to prevent contamination during the extraction process. After that, the extract must be dried in a vacuum chamber to remove the leftover butane and any other remaining impurities.
In conclusion, the cold extraction process produces a concentrate that contains more overall terpenes and far more of the lightweight and volatile monoterpenes like Myrcene and Terpinolene. Above all, terpenes are valuable because they modify the effect of the primary chemical compounds within cannabis like THC and CBD, as well as being therapeutic on their own. Live resin’s cold extraction process results in a product that has a more complex therapeutic effect and a more finely detailed high.
Benefits of Live Resin
The most significant and most apparent benefit is the superior quality of live resin when compared to other cannabis concentrates. In addition to producing a more pungent smell, higher and more complex terpene profiles can also deliver an elevated experience because terpenes can interact with cannabinoids such as THC and CBD.
Both of these factors have influenced why live resin has risen to the upper echelon of the cannabis concentrate market. Fans of cannabis extracts tend to place a high value on flavour and aroma as well as effect. Typically, concentrates bearing the name “live resin” sell for a higher price in the medicinal and recreational market as a result of this.
