Live resin is a cannabis concentrate. It is manufactured using only fresh cannabis plant material. The newly harvested plants are frozen to a sub-critical temperature throughout the entire extraction process.
Generally, cannabis is allowed to dry and cure before undergoing any extraction process to obtain concentrates. However, the drying process takes a toll on the plant’s terpenes. Prolonged oxygen exposure, sunlight, physical agitation, and heat all further degrade the terpenes, but with the extraction process for live resin, the newly harvested plants are instantly frozen, which dramatically helps preserve the plant’s terpenes. The live resin keeps the aromatic fragrance of the plant and its varied flavors.
