What is Live Resin? Live resin is a type of cannabis concentrate that is produced using a unique technique—freshly harvested cannabis is frozen to a subcritical temperature prior to and throughout the extraction process, skipping the drying and curing phases. The drying and curing process that a cannabis plant typically undergoes can have a devastating impact on terpenes, the compounds that account for flavor and aroma. They are present in the trichomes, which line virtually every surface of a mature cannabis bud and its surrounding foliage. During drying and curing, the cannabis plant wicks itself of moisture and chlorophyll. Trichomes may also be subjected to adverse conditions such as increased exposure to heat, oxygen, and light, and physical agitation, which all can degrade terpenes.
How to use Budder? Most people dab live resin. To do so you’ll need a dab rig and either a torch and nail or an e-nail. You’ll also need a dabber tool—most likely something with a scoop on it, given live resin’s consistency—to handle the concentrate and put it in the nail. You can also put your live resin in a dab pen, which is like a vape pen that allows you to put concentrates into it instead of a vape cartridge. A good nail temperature is around 550°F—this will preserve the terpenes and flavors without scorching the concentrate.
Be sure to use a dabber tool to get the live resin in the oven of the dab pen, then click the button and you’re set.
