Terpen Live Resin is one of the highest quality cannabis extracts you can buy. It is one of the most flavourful and potent extracts available to us. Is it created using BHO or PHO methods, which means the high pressures of the solvents are what separates the plant material from the good stuff: trichomes and terpenes.
But what makes it different from shatter, wax, budder, saps, and all the other BHO and PHO extracts? The biggest difference is the timing of the extraction. Shatter and other solvent extracts are done from dried and cured flowers, and the timing of the crop is not taken into account at all.
With live resin, speed and timing are everything. Once the cultivator decides to cut down the crop, the extractor works quickly, performing the extraction techniques within minutes of the plant being cut down. The result is a massive difference in terpene content.
If this is your first time using concentrates, make sure to start slow. Doing a big dab your first time might make you green out, even if you’re accustomed to smoking joints. It’s the same thing with edibles. All of the different ingestion methods provide different experiences. Tolerance levels in one arena does not necessarily affect the others.
Dabbing extracts (also called concentrates) provides increased cerebral effects. Colours brighten, time warps and senses heighten. You may notice new sounds, smells or textures. If you are prone to anxiety, make sure to start slow, and use indica, not sativa. Higher concentrations of THC found in extracts will elevate the experience.
