Live resin is a concentrate, like wax or shatter, that is higher in terpenes than other cannabis material. What exactly are terpenes? TERPENES are oils secreted by the cannabis plant that give each STRAIN its unique taste and smell.
The cool thing is that terpenes are produced by the very same glands that produce THC and CBD. So you know there’s gotta be something good going on there.
Because live resin is processed without first DECARBOXYLATING the plant, the resulting concentrate more accurately captures the terpene profile of the living plant. This can result in better aromas, better flavors, and better medicinal effects.
