Checking out new consumption methods, products as well as strains is consistently an exciting part of visiting the cannabis dispensary.
While I prefer smoking dried flower as well as vaping distillate, I am willing to try most anything. I know that experimentation is the best way to find new number ones, distillate is a cannabis extract designed to use in vape pens. There are an abundance of extracts that offer odd benefits, and just recently, I got introduced to live resin. I was surprised by the difference between the two concentrates. Live resin is extracted from fresh cannabis flowers. When harvested at peak season, the flowers are flash-frozen to preserve as various of the trichomes as possible. The plants are kept frozen while in the entire extraction process, eliminating drying, curing as well as trimming stages. When the plant is exposed to heat, light as well as oxygen, the trichomes are broken down. The trichomes are entirely the most desirable component of the plant. They are where the cannabinoids as well as terpenes are stored, giving the strain its stink, flavor, potency as well as effects. The essence of the flash-frozen flowers are extracted to create live resin, providing rich as well as stinktic flavors. The color is similar to honey, ranging from white or pale to a dark orange. The taste is often similar to fresh herbs or fruit. The texture is dense as well as sauce-like. It’s officially quite sticky, so it’s a nice idea to use a dab tool while in prep work. I like that live resin concentrates are usually high in THC. They supply a strong as well as intense high as well as are proposed for seasoned cannabis users. The main difference between distillates (cured resin concentrates) as well as live resin alternatives is the starting material. Distillates are created from dried plant material while live resin is the result of frozen plant material. It’s all a matter of preference, but in my opinion, live resin is superior. They retain the highest percentage of terpene pleased possible.
