Live Resin Terpenes refers to terpenes that are extracted from cannabis or hemp while the plant is still living or in some cases extracted from plants that were fresh frozen. Fresh frozen denotes that the biomass was frozen while still living.
Many terpenes are extracted from already-harvested plants, in which case, some of them dissipate or get destroyed with exposure to things like oxygen and heat. However, plant materials that are flash-frozen shortly after harvest retain their terpenes at a much higher rate than plants that aren’t flash-frozen or are left to dry.
If you look at the industry, you’ll notice a higher demand (and price!) for products with “live” in the name. Think Live Resin or Live Rosin. To make these products, they must be extracted or squeezed while the terpenes are still living and fresh to help promote the best flavors and effects.
Since terpenes boost the effectiveness of cannabinoids like THC/CBD in a phenomenon known as the entourage effect, the more terpenes that can be retained in the initial process of extracting or concentrating make for more potent and more flavorful products.
That’s where live terpenes come in. Collecting the full spectrum of terpenes found in plants allows people to make more fragrant and flavorful products that feel more potent. It also allows people to include the full spectrum of terpenes found in the plant since none were lost to things like oxygen or heat.
Why choose Live Resin Terpenes?
In short, full-spectrum live terpenes allow processors and extractors to make infusions and extracts that truly represent how a strain smells or tastes. Best of all, full-spectrum terpenes are responsible for many of the effects felt by our favorite buds, so the more the merrier.
