What is Live Resin? A quick intro.
Live resin is cannabis concentrate that is produced using a process that takes freshly harvested cannabis and freezes it to subcritical temperatures before and throughout the extraction process.
With Live Resin, extraction the plants are actually allowed to dry and cure before the process begins
Drying and curing can often impact the terpenes within the trichomes
With cured concentrates, the cannabis plant is allowed time to cure and release moisture and chlorophyll before the extraction occurs.
During this time, trichomes are subjected to conditions not conducive to terpene preservation. Things like increased exposure to heat, oxygen, physical agitation, and light all play a role in degrading terpenes.
But with Live Resin, cannabis plants are flash frozen following harvest and kept at freezing temperatures throughout the extraction process.
This way, the cannabis plant retains its delightful terpene profile, leaving you with the plant’s original flavor and fragrance.
A delightful treat for those of us who live for great tasting cannabis products.
