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 and intense terpene and cannabinoid experience.

In its intact state, this live resin emitted aromas of sweet fuel and musk. When dabbed, I got a big dose of pungent funky fuel with sweetness, especially dank on the exhale. An accurate, flavorful of the Star Dawg flower’s terps.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful experience with live resins. Dabbing this live resin at high temps degrades the flavor significantly. To learn how you can use this terpenes data to better your health, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: A potent mix of mind and body that leans to the cerebral. At moderate and high doses, this live resin is spacey, a tad psychedelic and full of euphoria. At lower doses, it’s a functional high that will add a little pep-in-your-step. Like the Star Dawg flower, this live resin is not for newbies. It’s powerful so go low and slow until you are comfortable and can gauge its effects.
Duration of Effects: 2-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood and colon spasms. May also help with stress, anxiety, pain, G.I. discomfort, muscle spasms, minor nerve pain, appetite (and more).
A tasty live resin that magnifies all that is great about the Star Dawg flower.
