Live resin distinguishes itself from other types of cannabis concentrates because it is created with fresh frozen cannabis—plants that are frozen immediately after being cut down at harvest. These plants are kept frozen throughout the extraction process and skip the drying, curing, and trimming phases of harvesting. It is a more malleable concentrate, sitting somewhere between a wax and a sauce—not quite like taffy yet not too wet. It is typically dark yellow in color but can vary from light yellow to white. Like all cannabis concentrates, it is extremely sticky, so you’ll need a dab tool to handle it. Live resins tend to be potent with a lot of THC, and consumers love it because of its intense flavors and aromas.
