Live resin is a cannabis concentrate that has quickly gained popularity amongst many vapers and can be the next big thing in cannabis. The process of creating live resin preserves the cannabis plant’s natural terpene profile often loss in the process of drying and curing leading to new experiences in terms of flavor, aroma, and possibly psychoactive effects.
Due to this new popularity, a surge of live resin carts and cartridges have also hit the market. Vaping live resin is the easiest and most convenient way of consuming it and the process is no different from a CO2 cartridge.
How is Live Resin Made?
The process begins by flash freezing freshly harvested cannabis plant matter. This usually happens by either placing it in a freezer containing dry ice or by being slowly dipped into a container filled with liquid nitrogen. The plant matter is kept frozen right until it is ready for extraction. Usually, extraction takes place within 36 hours of the plant material thawing.
Most live resin is extracted using a simple process that is similar to that used to make most other concentrates. Plant material is passed through with a solvent which is then vaporized out of the final product. The main difference is that the solvent is cooled to -40℃/-40℉ for extraction. The final product is also purged of solvents at a much lower temperature than when making other concentrates. (via The Higher Path)
The final product is a concentrate filled with natural flavors, much different from your usual distillate.
Live Resin For Vape Carts
Live Resin vape cartridges are gaining popularity amongst many vape pen users. The combination of high terpene flavors, aroma, and THC levels creates a new overall experience while vaping often referred to as the “entourage effect”. Live Resin cartridges won’t always have the highest THC content but the added attributes more than make up for it for many.
So much so that, live resin cartridges are often sold more expensively than many distillate cartridges. At the moment, live resin cartridges are seen as a luxury item amongst many cannabis connoisseurs due to the unique experience but aren’t much more expensive than other distillate cartridges.
Live resin concentrate consistencies are very similar to other concentrates and can come in forms similar everywhere from a thick honey to a solid shatter or badder. The closer to a liquid form, the easier it will be to add into your vape cartridges although they may need to be diluted if too thick.
