Cannabis concentrate

Live resin[lɪv ˈrɛzɪn]


Live resin refers to a Cannabis concentrate made from fresh flowers rather than dried and cured buds. This approach retains the terpenes that get lost throughout the drying and curing process. Users and growers recognize live resin as a superior Cannabis product.

Because it is made from fresh frozen cannabis—plants that are frozen shortly after being cut down during harvest—live resin stands out from other types of cannabis concentrates.

Immediate freezing helps preserve the trichomes, valuable terpene profile, original flavor, and smell of the Cannabis flower throughout the extraction process and into the final product.

After harvesting, frozen plants are subjected to a solvent extraction process employing butane, propane, or another solvent.
