What is “Live Resin”?
Live Resin is a specific type of cannabis extract whereby fresh cannabis flowers (i.e., buds not yet dried and cured) are harvested at their apex of maturity, cryogenically flash frozen under very cold temperatures and then used as the extraction material in the manufacturing process of that extract. The process of manufacturing Live Resin is an effort to retain as much of the fresh terpenes (and cannabinoids) from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete terpene profile experience.

Physical Characteristics: neon yellow and sugary.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this product, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this extract.
This live sugar emitted a sweet, vegetal and floral aroma. When dabbed, this sample’s ISS side of tropical sweetness almost dissipated and was replaced with floral, herbal & vegetal mix with a light sweetness. Personally, I did not like this flavor profile. However, I never penalize any product because I personally do not like one or more of its traits. That's irrelevant.
TIPS: Low temp dabbing is mandatory to achieve optimum flavor with this live resin. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: A powerful cerebral experience that, as the name suggests, also initially hits you with a strong ‘spaced out’ Sativa head fog. After about 20-30 minutes, the spaciness subsides and what remains is still an intense cerebral high. For me, there was some headband-like pressure at times. Go low and slow with this live sugar no matter your level of experience or tolerance. First timers should steer clear of this one.
Duration of Effects: 2-3 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with energy and mood. May also help with depression, mild aches and pains, creativity, appetite (and more).
I would recommend this to lovers of heady Sativas with adventurous palates.
