What is Live Resin?
Many popular types of cannabis extracts such as Shatter and Wax are made by dousing cannabis buds with solvents to separate the trichomes from the rest of the plant material. The solvents are then purged to leave you with a potent extract that’s high in cannabinoids. Some concentrates, such as Hash and Rosin, use solventless methods. However, Live Resin is one of the trickiest to make.
While most concentrates are made from dried and cured cannabis buds, Live Resin is made from fresh cannabis flowers and buds that have been flash frozen. As such, Live Resin retains much of the fresh flavour from the terpenes of the plant. On top of that, it also contains high levels of cannabinoids making for a high-quality cannabis extract.
