Live resin is a form of cannabis concentrate produced using fresh flower as opposed to dried and cured buds. This method retains the terpenes that are lost during the drying and curing process. Because the flavorful terpenes remain intact, live resin is considered a high-quality, connoisseur-level product.
How to store
Keep it cool and in an air-tight container, preferably in a fridge if you can. This will preserve the terpenes and keep it tasting and smelling great for a while.
Leaving it out in the open with the lid off will cause it to dry out quickly, making it harder to handle and damaging the taste.
How to consume
There are a few ways to consume this product.
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.
A good nail temperature is around 550°F—this will preserve the terpenes and flavors without scorching the concentrate.
Vaping with a dab pen
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.
Be sure to use a dabber tool to get the live resinn in the oven of the dab pen, then click the button and you’re set.
You can also put some live resin on top of a bowl, joint, or blunt for an added kick.
