What Does Live Resin Feel Like?

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:

  1. 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.  
  2. 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.

  • Vapes: Live resin vapes, including both disposables and pre-filled vape carts, allow us to inhale vapor that’s rich in cannabinoids and terpenes.  Inhalation offers the fastest-acting effects that can be felt in just minutes, lasting for about 1 to 2 hours.  Because of how bioavailable inhalation is, the effects tend to be felt very potently as well.
  • Dabs: Live resin dabs are concentrates that are designed to be extremely potent, which is why they’re not suitable for beginners.  They are vaporized through a dabbing device, and the high potency is matched by the incredibly fast-acting effects that are felt.
  • Tinctures: Live resin tinctures are sublingual products that absorb below the tongue. The effects are usually felt in around 30 minutes, and even can last for up 6 or so hours.  The effects are not as potent as inhalation-based methods, and this can be more desirable for certain individuals.
  • Edibles: Edibles also offer long-lasting effects that include a unique body high sensation, but they may take a bit longer to take effect as there are more ingredients that must be processed by the digestive system.

  • #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.

  • Indica: Known for having a mellowing effect on mood as well as the body.  They’re popular for evening and nighttime use.
  • Sativa: More popular during the daytime as they may be energizing and uplifting.
  • Hybrid: Result from crossing together an indica and a sativa, which produces a nice balance between the two.
  • 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.
