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.
Type: Sativa-Dominant Hybrid (breakdown unknown)
Genotype: Sour Pink Grapefruit = Sweet Pink Grapefruit X East Coast Sour Diesel
Net Weight: 1g
Purchase Price: $60.00 + tax
NOTE: I do not identify dispensaries in my reviews. However, if you want to know the shop that's offering this pricing, I will provide it to anyone who requests it.
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Physical Characteristics: Mango colored, sugary and crystalized.
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.
In its intact state, this wax emitted an assertive sour and tartness. When dabbed, this live sugar tasted of pink lemonade with a distinct grapefruit-like tartness on the exhale. A wonderful flavor profile.
TIPS: Low temp dabbing is mandatory to achieve optimum flavor with this live resin. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: I found the effects to be somewhat balanced; not a full-on Sativa jolt like a Durban Poison. The high elevated my mood nicely while providing a pleasant, sustained liveliness. At its apex, I also experienced a little headiness. A wonderful set of effects.
Duration of Effects: 2-3 hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood and fatigue. May also help with mild to moderate aches and pains, depression, appetite (and more)
Cresco chose wisely by adding Sour Pink Grapefruit to their strain offerings. One of the best Sativa live extracts I’ve had in Illinois in 2018.
