What is Cannabis Live Resin?;
Live resin is made from fresh flowers of the cannabis plant. At the peak of harvest, the plants are cut down and flash-frozen to preserve the valuable trichomes. The trichomes are the essence of the plant – it’s where the terpenes and cannabinoids are born and live.
Benefits of Using Live Resin;
Dabbers love live resin because it is more flavorful and “terpy” than other concentrates. In preserving trichomes and terpenes, it retains the flavor profile of the original plant. Preserving trichomes also keeps cannabinoids intact, and live resin is also known to be potent.
Growers like producing plants for live resin as well. Fresh freezing plants at harvest means growers don’t have to go through the long, arduous processes of drying, curing, and trimming plants—whole plants can be chopped down, frozen, and sent directly to the extractor. Producing plants for live resin saves growers enormous amounts of time, labor, and money.
