What is live resin?
Live resin is starting to become a favorite among cannabis connoisseurs. But what exactly is live resin and what makes live resin so special?
In the world of modern marijuana cultivation, technical developments play an important role. There are new developments in every area of cannabis cultivation that influence the growth process and the end product. For example, grow lamps are becoming increasingly efficient. New fertilization methods ensure the optimization of the yield. And weed growers are increasingly adapting their varieties to the individual needs of consumers.
New developments are emerging at a rapid pace. As we begin to understand more about marijuana and its properties and effects, we discover new and interesting ways to get the most out of the plant.
This article is about a relatively new and interesting innovation in the field of cannabis. And more specifically, in the field of cannabis concentrates, namely: live resin.
Live resin: a combination of high-tech and terpenes
Cannabis consists of different components and you can use different techniques to extract them. Regarding cannabis concentrates, BHO (butane hash oil) is the most common form.
Live resin is actually a form of BHO. But live resin is more balanced and has a stronger and purer taste profile. Another difference between BHO and live resin is that BHO is relatively easy to make, while the production process of live resin is a lot more complicated.
How is live resin made?
Live resin is made in a similar way to BHO, but not with a bud that is dried and cured. Live resin uses a fresh frozen, deep-falling bud. Cryogenic freezing of fresh and non-dried cannabis buds helps to extract a wider range of cannabinoids and terpenes. But this technique requires knowledge and specialist equipment.
