What is Live Resin?
Live resin is a cannabis extract derived from fresh frozen cannabis flower, that has not been subject to traditional harvesting and curing methods. After harvesting, the cannabis flowers are immediately frozen to preserve the native cannabinoid and terpene profiles, similar to wax and shatter, but with a terpene profile identical to the living plant and levels higher than extracts derived from traditionally dried and cured plants. The abundance of terpenes allows our extractors to achieve colors and consistencies desired, providing our patients with the most gleaming articulation of each cannabis strain’s unique flavor, aroma, and cannabinoid profile.
Like essential oils, terpenes are aromatic oils secreted by the plant via the same glands that produce cannabinoids like THC. Terpenes are responsible not only for the assorted, complex flavors that adorn the cannabis plant but also may play a role in the effects of the various cannabis strains. Different terpenes have different effects- including different health benefits. Some terpene may promote relaxation and stress relief while others may promote focus or acuity. Keeping the terpenes tastes and smells intact provides a full spectrum experience, referred to as the entourage effect.
Known for its uniquely dry texture which crumbles when handled. Versatility not limited to dabbing. When made correctly the final product is high in terpenes while maintaining that dry crumble texture.
Micro-crystals whipped with terpenes for a fluffy, light texture resembling a cake-batter like frosting. There is no one type of badder and is often soft gold/yellow in color. Perfect for low temperature dabs. The batter-like consistency makes easy for spreading
An embrace of smooth, golden terpenes and teams of tiny delectable THC crystals. Sugars are visibly crystalized to resemble its name and falls in a happy medium between badders and nectars. The tiny glistening crystals giving a sugar-like look and feel. They have a wide range of colors from very light yellow to almost amber.
Nectars are the purest and most stable form of THC crystallization, known for their clarity and accurate dosing (due to purity). Our nectars are naturally grown. They are never broken down to be chemically rebuilt and are kept bathed in their natural terpene nectar to maintain their complete live plant profile. The crystals themselves are clear, but they come in an amber bath of high terpene extract.
THCa vs THC
THCa is one of the raw, non-psychoactive cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant, existing in an acid form (the “a” means acid). It is the chemical precursor to THC, the cannabinoid recognized for its psychoactive and “elevating” effects. THCa must be heated/burned in order to convert to THC via a process called “decarboxylation,” (burn the “a” away). While THCa is non-psychoactive, both THCa and THC express their own unique medicinal properties.
What Does Cure Mean?
Cured concentrates are made using cannabis flower that has undergone the curing process. Degradation of terpenes occurs during the curing process-a cured terpene profile will be different from a live terpene profile. To create our line of wholesale cured concentrates, we used cured cannabis cultivated by verified sources, to create next level extracts that even the most connoisseur will appreciate. Our extraction team works with cured cannabis to make sure our patients have a wide variety of concentrates with plenty of options
Crystallized concentrate formed from slow extraction
Smooth concentrate with a long shelf-life and a glass-like appearance
Also known as crumble for its dry, clumpy appearance after whipping
