Science breaks down the benefits of consuming live cannabis resin for better health
In the market of concentrates, there are more and more types of extracts with extravagant names that attract the attention of many consumers. Yet, among all of them, there is one type of concentrate that promises the best results, first-rate therapeutic effects, and an enhanced entourage effect, all thanks to the extracts of the moment. Live resin has become quite a trend as advances in cannabis products continue.
There are all kinds of products made with live resin, from edibles to cartridges and vapes. They are usually distinguished precisely by the label indicating that these cannabis products are made from live resin.
Live resin can be confused with other concentrates because it has a sticky, dark, and liquid texture like some others. However, it is a very special concentrate, since it is derived from cannabis plants that were frozen just after being harvested, without going through the drying or curing process, hence why it is considered a “live” concentrate.
As a result of freezing the plant, terpenes, cannabinoids and other elements of the plant that are often lost during the drying and curing of the plant can be preserved, giving an extract with more intense effects, flavors, and aromas of greater therapeutic value. Of course, the effects are quite potent, so if you are an inexperienced user, it is advisable to go slowly.
Live resin in concentrate form offers the option of consuming high doses of THC and other cannabinoids in a single inhalation. This can be beneficial for people who use cannabis as an aid for symptoms such as chronic pain or nausea, who rely on quick relief, and who don’t want to be constantly smoking.
The potent effect could also have implications for people using cannabis to help with other medical conditions, such as the side effects of chemotherapy, epilepsy, migraines, and pretty much anything else that people have decided to use cannabis for. This applies even for recreational use, as better effects are obtained with less concentration.
