Live resin is a style of cannabis concentrate that is freshly harvested from the plants.
- There are a number of processes to extract concentrate from the cannabis plant, however some of the inexpensive live resin concentrates use an extraction process that requires heat, oxygen, or lights.
All of these processes can rob the plant of its natural terpenes. The terpenes are responsible for making the concentrate taste good. Terpenes also have natural abilities to heal our body as well as mind. The only way to retain all of the terpene profile of the plant is to cold press or freeze the cannabis plant; Freezing the plant allows live resin to retain the original flavor, fragrance, as well as terpene profile. Most live resin products are extracted using a system other than cold pressed. Cold press live resin is called rosin as well as it averages around 60 or $68 for 1 gram. There are live resin products that are around 25 or $30 for 1 gram. When our friends as well as I went to the dispensary last weekend, they were completely out of inexpensive live resin concentrate. Over the weekend, there were a lot of visitors to the San Francisco area. This particular San Francisco cannabis dispensary has the best prices in the city. The place was sold out of everything when we arrived. I didn’t want to spend $75 on concentrate, so I searched the surrounding areas in San Francisco until I found a place with cheaper prices. The dispensary had a first time patient special of 20% off as well as they even gave free local delivery. My cabin happened to be inside their zone.
