You may have noticed a shift happening in the hemp industry, with more companies developing lines of vape cartridges created with live resin as opposed to more conventional hemp extracts. Live resin is arguably more capable of satisfying the needs of anyone who prefers their cannabinoids and terpenes in vape oil form, and to help better illustrate this point, let’s compare them to “normal” or traditional vape cartridges, made with what’s known as “cured” resin.
What is a Hemp Vape Cartridge?
A hemp vape cartridge is your standard Pyrex Glass container that houses the pre-filled hemp oil along with an internal coil that heats the e-liquid for it to then be vaporized. Most vape carts are 510-threaded, meaning they can simply attach to any standard/compatible pen-style vaporizer.
Keep in mind, the hemp market mostly offers closed vape cartridges, as these are already filled with the liquid and are disposable, but you can once and awhile find open vape cartridges where they’re refillable and can be used multiple times.
Live Resin Vape Carts
Live resin vape carts are made with well… live resin – an extract of hemp compounds that’s derived from fresh, flash-frozen raw hemp material as opposed to the more standard dry-cured hemp material. The purpose of live resin is to offer an extract that contains a higher concentration of the trichomes that coat the flowering buds of the plant, where we find a rich selection of terpenes and other desirable compounds.
The idea is that the dry-curing process, which is traditionally done to keep flower preserved, decreases the potency of these trichomes, which means that the resulting extract contains a weakened concentration of the very terpenes we seek out for both their flavor and effects. Live resin preserves them beautifully, and you can see that for yourself given the darker, thicker nature of live resin vape oils.
“Normal” Vape Carts
Vape cartridges that are made with a more conventional vape oil are extracted from not live resin, but dry-cured flower. This means that the raw flower buds have been preserved through a methodical drying process, removing the proper amount of moisture so that mold doesn’t develop (live resin is also resistant to mold). Dry-curing the flower does weaken the trichomes of the plant, not to the extent that vaping traditional cartridges is a waste of time, but to the extent that you’re only getting so much of the terpene content found in the plant material.
