Live Resin/Caviar

Live Resin/Caviar

Live resin is a concentrate cannabis oil, like wax or shatter, that has been extracted from fresh flowers to preserve important compounds known as terpenes. This preservation makes a cleaner, more potent, and highly flavourful concentrate. We produce Live resin by freezing newly harvested cannabis in subcritical temperatures before and through the extraction process. Although it is similar to other concentrates in that it has a higher THC content, it’s not the THC percentage that makes this concentrate unique.

As much of 60% of a plant’s terpene content can be lost during the curing process. By immediately shock freezing a freshly harvested plant, terpenes and cannabinoids don’t have the chance to degrade.

What is Live Resin?

Live Resin is a type of cannabis concentrate characterized by its strong taste and aromatic profile. It gets its name from the fact that cannabis is frozen immediately after harvest while it is still “alive,” rather than dried and cured like traditional methods.

This flash freezing helps preserve terpenes. We lose the aromatic compounds found in cannabis and many other plants during the drying and curing process. Scientists believe terpenes to contribute to the unique effects of different cannabis strains.

How do you use Live Resin?

Live resin is usually consumed in a process called “purification.” This is because it is a very concentrated form of cannabis and has a different consistency than typical dried flower. Here are the general steps for using it:

  1. Equipment: You will need a dab rig, similar to a bong but designed for concentrates. In addition, you will need a nail, a flat container, usually made of quartz or titanium, that you will heat and apply resin to, a dome to catch the steam (unless your nail has no burrs), and a handmade tool to hold the living resin. and a flashlight to heat the nail.
  2. Preparation: Take up a small amount of Live Resin with a swab. Keep in mind that it is very durable, so you generally don't need large amounts of it. A small crumb-sized piece might be enough.
  3. Heat the nail: Heat the nail with a flashlight until it becomes warm. It is important that you heat the nail evenly to avoid cracking.
  4. Cool down: Allow the nail to cool down for approx. 10-45 seconds. The exact time depends on the nail material. The right temperature is crucial to fully enjoy the flavor profile of Live Resin and avoid harsh aromas.
  5. Apply Live Resin: Apply it to the nail with a swab while inhaling through the mouthpiece of the dab kit.
  6. Cover the nail: If using a dome, cover the nail immediately after applying the resin to catch the steam.
  7. Exhale and enjoy: After inhaling the steam, exhale and enjoy. Remember that the effects of cannabis concentrates can be intense. Therefore, it is always a good idea to start slowly and see how it affects you.

Always remember to handle the nail carefully during and after use as it can become very hot.

Is there a difference between Live Resin and Live Rosin?

Although live resin and live rosin are both made from fresh cannabis plants to provide a richer terpene profile than concentrates made from dried plants, the main difference lies in the extraction method: resin uses solvents, while rosin is solvent-free.

What are the benefits of using Live Resin?

Live Resin offers better taste and aroma than dried hemp concentrates. This is because the rapid freezing process used to create it helps preserve the cannabis flower's original terpene profile. The higher terpene content of it offers a more varied and aromatic experience, contributing to a fuller entourage effect. Additionally, some consumers believe that live resin provides a more authentic representation of the strain's effects due to the retention of all terpenes.

What are the benefits of using Live Resin?

One of the main advantages of rosin is the lack of solvents, which is attractive to those seeking a more natural, chemical-free extraction method. Rosin also retains the terpenes and cannabinoids of the original plant material, resulting in a more flavorful and aromatic concentrate. This complete preservation of natural botanicals ensures an immersive spatial experience where the combination of cannabinoids and terpenes work synergistically to achieve a holistic and complete effect.
