What is live resin?
Live resin is a high-quality THC extract made using CO2 or butane to extract trichomes from fresh flash-frozen cannabis. By sourcing the cannabis concentrates from fresh plant matter instead of cured/dried material, more of the original terpenes are preserved in the final extract. Since live resin has more terpenes, it’s usually more malleable and runnier. Live resins can range in color from light gold to deep amber, but, ultimately the color will vary along with its terpene content.
What are live resin cartridges?
Live resin carts are prefilled vaporizer tanks that contain live resin instead of oil. Generally speaking, most people who use live resin simply dab it like any other concentrate. However, in recent years, live resin vape carts have become popular because of their ease of use. How good are live resin carts? They’re fantastic if you’re into the entourage effect! This is because live resin has a cannabinoid profile closer to that in the original plant matter. Proponents of the entourage effect believe that cannabis is more than just THC. They believe that to get the full benefit of cannabis, we need to ingest all of the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes together.
Live resin carts vs. normal carts
Are carts with live resin better than carts with traditional vape oil? In this case, it depends on whether you’re going for a stronger THC concentration or whether you’re into the more subtle terpenes and other cannabinoids. Live resin tends to be much higher in flavorful terpenes than vape oil, but quality vape oil tends to have higher concentrations of THC. There’s more to potency than THC, though. The total cannabinoid content of Raw Garden Live Resin Carts, for example, hovers between 87% and 93%. This is a good thing. A cart that contained 95% THC or higher wouldn’t have room for all those delicious terps!
How does live resin compare to other concentrates?
Live resin, generally speaking, is much more flavorful than other forms of concentrates derived from cured cannabis. Not only that, but live resin will usually have a wider variety of cannabinoids within it. The potency of live resin is not always consistent. It ultimately depends upon the potency of the plant strain it is derived from. This is also the case for other types of concentrates. You can find many concentrates with under 50% potency and others that are 85% or higher. THC diamonds, for example, can be up to 99.9% THC. Nevertheless, most high-quality live resin vape carts are in the 85% to 95% THC range.
How to use live resin carts
Using live resin carts is much more straightforward than dabbing concentrates, but there are still important things to keep in mind. You must be mindful when inhaling concentrates. THC extracts are significantly more potent than flower.
1.) Always take gentle draws. If your lungs are hurting or burning after taking a rip, you’re overdoing your draw. A modest and ideal hit can be inhaled without much coughing.
2.) Manage your dab temperature. Try to find a vape pen that allows you to adjust the temperature and start with the lowest temperature possible. From there, you can raise the temperature as necessary.
3.) Unscrew live resin carts when not using them. Be sure to always store them in an upright position in a cool, dry place to avoid accidental breaks or leaks. Removing the cart from your vape pen after use also prevents potential leaks from ruining the pen.
Most people who use live resin carts will do so because they’re an easy and convenient way to use live resin. Not only that, they’re incredibly discreet.
