What Is Live Resin
As the cannabis industry grows and reinvents itself, we as consumers are being introduced to ingenious new ways to medicate with cannabis. Technological advances have made various forms of concentrated THC readily available and chances are that you may have heard of the “live resin” craze, wondering “what is live resin”, and why it has become so prevalent in previous years. Live resin is a term for a cannabis concentrate made by extracting cannabinoids and terpenes from other unwanted plant-matter that is comprised of up to 92% pure THC. Live resin is so popular and revered in the cannabis community due to its fast-acting delivery system and almost instantaneous effects. Live resin compared to traditional smoking is very beneficial in the sense that there is no combustion of unwanted or hazardous plant material during the process of consumption, making it a great alternative for the health-conscious.
How To Smoke Live Resin
Live resin can be smoked in various ways, and is one of the most versatile concentrates available behind distillates. The term “dab” is a frequently used term that is heavily associated with smoking live resin. “Dab” refers to the most popular way to smoke live resin which requires a specialized bong or ”dab rig”, a “nail” attachment that is generally made of titanium, quartz or ceramic, and a butane torch. The nail attachment is heated to an optimal temperature, and the concentrate or live resin is “dabbed” onto the nail, resulting in a build up of vapour within the bong that is then inhaled. Asides from being dabbed, live resin can be enjoyed in many other ways.
One of the easiest way to smoke live resin is to crumble it into blunts, bowls, and joints. This method does not required the aforementioned dab rig which may be too big of an investment for beginner or casual smokers. This method of consumption is unfortunately not ideal for those who enjoy dabs for their terpenes or flavour, trading flavour and aroma for convenience and accessibility.
With A Vaporizer
Portable electronic vaporizers are rapidly taking over the market, becoming the most discreet and convenient product for the consumption of live resin or other THC concentrates. Vaporizers are the healthiest way to use live resin, allowing consumers to avoid the negative side effects associated with the combustion or smoking of live resin by heating the concentrates at a low temperature, which creates pure vapour. Vaporizing live resin allows users to taste the terpenes and pure flavour associated with the live resin.
