What is Live Resin?
Unlike the majority of cannabis products, Live resin extract is made from plant material that hasn’t been dried or cured. Live resin is a cannabis concentrate that gets its name from the freshness of the cannabis plant from which it’s made. The starting plant material used for live resin includes fresh flower buds and sugar leaves; the large fan leaves and stems are excluded. The flash-freezing process helps preserve the most desirable compounds and retain the full flavour of the originating cannabis plant. Concentrate enthusiasts tend to gravitate toward live resin for its more flavorful and aromatic dabbing experience. When producing live resin, the primary goal is to capture the massive essence and aroma of the live cannabis plant. Products extracted using the live resin process — flash-freezing the cannabis plant material, then extracting it — are associated with high-quality and flavorful concentrates. Bypassing the typical drying and curing processes allows for a greater proportion of essential oils.
These essential oils, technically called terpenes, are the compounds responsible for the distinctive flavours and aromas in cannabis, and other characteristics to be expressed in the final product.
