Live Resin is a high quality concentrated form of cannabis that gives users a clean, more potent, and even more flavorful effect. The difference between Live Resin and other concentrates is that fresh, frozen whole cannabis flowers are processed before they have had the chance to dry and be cured. Most other forms of cannabis concentrates such as shatter and wax are still made from the whole cannabis flowers, but it has gone through the natural drying and curing process. Due to this, concentrates like shatter and wax lose more terpenes than the Live Resin.
Live Resin has an extremely high terpene content due to this particular process. Terpenes are the pungent oils that color cannabis varieties with distinctive flavors like citrus, berry, mint, and pine. Terpenes are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC and CBD. Another difference between Live Resin and other concentrates is its texture. While Flower is Sticky and other concentrates are more malleable, Live Resin has its unique texture and consistency that it has a bright golden color and a very gooey granular consistency.
While many consider terpenes to offer only aroma and flavor, much research points toward the synergistic effect produced when cannabinoids and terpenes work together to deliver medical efficacy for a wide variety of ailments. Live Resin is used as an immediate relief for insomnia and pain patients. Unlike edibles, Live Resin is fast acting so if you need to fall asleep more quickly or your pain is too unbearable to wait until the edible kicks in, then Live Resin is the medicine you should use.
