Balagan Cannabis has recently added live resin to our product offerings, and if you are new to live resin, you will love its unique and distinct experience. There are many great cannabis options available on the market, and we offer something for every preference, including live resin. If you have never tried live resin or want to learn more, here are 5 quick facts to know about live resin.
Fact 1: Live Resin Is A Compound
Live resin is a cannabis compound that’s extracted from a cannabis plant, also known as a concentrate. This process is highly technical and requires skilled knowledge and equipment. First, the compound is directly extracted from the cannabis plant and flash frozen – meaning the nutrients and flavor remain intact. It’s similar to how fruits and vegetables are frozen at their peak to retain optimum nutrient profiles. Once the live resin is extracted, it can be formed into different types of formats for use and consumption.
Fact 2: Robust Flavor and Aroma
Due to the way that live resin is extracted, the result is a compound with distinct and robust flavor and aroma profiles. Other compounds undergo a curing process, which can alter the taste and smell of cannabis. This curing process is skipped with live resin so that you can taste and smell its high-potency terpenes. The result is a top-quality cannabis flavor experience.
Fact 3: It Comes In Different Forms
Live resin comes in different forms for consumption. The most common are shatter, budder, and sauce forms. These can be purchased directly or incorporated into other products to boost the taste and effect. You can use pre-filled vape rolls or a dab rig for an enhanced experience. Balagan Cannabis recently began offering live resin-infused products like Lost Farm Sour Cherry gummies. It’s a way to experience live resin in an edible that you might already be familiar with before jumping in right away.
Fact 4: Live Resin Storage Matters
Like any form of cannabis, storage matters; proper storage conditions help ensure long-lasting flavor and quality. Since live resin is sourced and extracted so carefully, this is especially important with this compound. The best way to store live resin cannabis compounds is in a cool, dry space. Avoid areas with high humidity, like a bathroom. If you’re unsure of any specific area that fits the bill, store your live resin in the fridge.
Fact 5: Higher Costs
Live resin is a premium cannabis product that sometimes comes with a higher price tag. However, the potency, flavor, and overall experience that comes with live resin compounds is top of the line. Few products can compare to what you expect with live resin, whether on its own or infused into another product. So even if the price of the compound is higher than other cannabis products, the experience is worth it for many people.
