Live resin is a fairly new addition to the hemp market, and it’s not a cannabinoid, but rather a type of extract. Still, in just a short period of time, live resin has become a hugely popular alternative to the more traditional type of hemp extract due to the many ways in which it improves our experience with our favorite cannabinoids. But, what does live resin actually feel like? That’s the question on many new and even some experienced users’ minds.
What is Live Resin?
Live resin is a hemp extract made from fresh, flash-frozen raw hemp material, as opposed to dry-cured hemp material, which is the process used to make flower. Flash-freezing the plant preserves the trichomes – aka the sticky glands that coat the buds, where we find the potent concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes – so that the resulting extract is highly potent and flavorful, to the point that you can tell just by looking at it, with live resin having a darker color and thicker consistency than “regular” extract.
Will I Feel High with Live Resin?
That all depends on whether or not you are using a live resin product that contains a psychoactive cannabinoid. Live resin in and of itself isn’t psychoactive – it’s just a full spectrum hemp extract, and full spectrum hemp doesn’t have any psychoactive cannabinoids potent enough to give you a high. But, if your live resin is infused with, say, delta 8 THC, THC-P, or any other intoxicating cannabinoid, then yes, you will feel high.
What is the High of Live Resin Like?
Again, that all depends on the cannabinoid that’s in the formula. In general, however, live resin is more potent than standard extract, so it’s not surprising that people report feeling ‘more high’ when using a live resin product than a standard product, as the increased potency of the extract synergistically enhances the psychoactive cannabinoid in the formula.
What are the Effects of Live Resin?
Live resin offers two key benefits over traditional extracts:
- The flavor is more potent, since there’s a stronger concentration of terpenes in the extract as a result of getting more of the plant’s trichomes into the final product.
- The actual effects are going to be stronger, since again, a higher concentration of trichomes means more of the cannabinoids and terpenes responsible for the effects of the plant.
What Determines How You Will Feel When Taking Live Resin?
When it comes to any live resin product, two people can have entirely different experiences after taking it, due to a number of variables.
#1: Your Body’s Tolerance To Live Resin
Ultimately, everyone’s body is unique, and has a unique tolerance to cannabinoids. Some people may naturally feel a lot more intoxicated off of live resin cannabinoid products than others, and there are other factors pertaining to the endocannabinoid system that are unknown, which explain why different individuals can feel slightly different effects when taking any cannabinoid.
#2: How Much Live Resin You Take
Dosage obviously matters as well. Taking a high dosage amount or milligram strength of a live resin product would naturally get you ‘more high’ than consuming just a small amount. Remember that live resin is more potent than regular extract-based products.
#3: The Delivery Method of Live Resin
Any hemp product can be made with live resin, so live resin comes in a wide variety of product forms. If you’ve used different delivery methods for CBD or delta 8 in the past, then you already have an idea of how the delivery method can make a big difference in how you feel when consuming a particular cannabinoid.
#4: Type of Strain You Choose
Yes, the strain of the product makes a big difference. The strain refers to the terpene profile of the hemp used to produce the product, and each terpene offers distinctive effects as well as a unique flavor and aroma. There are three main types of strains, and within each type are many individual strains that you can choose from.
Final Live Resin Feeling Thoughts
Overall, live resin is a gamechanger, offering a more potent and flavorful type of hemp experience regardless of the cannabinoid you’re enjoying. As you can see, it is almost certainly going to feel different from a product made with dry-cured extract, in more ways than one. By choosing Binoid’s selection of Live Resin products, count on a powerful level of effectiveness and a fresh, rich terpene taste to satisfy your hemp-related needs beyond belief.
