Complete Guide to Our Live Rosin & Live Resin Strains

Table of Contents

Browsing through our product selection, you'll encounter names such as "Northern Lights," Blue Dream," and "Maui Wowie." If you're a beginner cannabis enthusiast, you're probably wondering what they could mean, and if you're an experienced cannasseur, you're probably wondering how these strains are available as hemp. 

Either way, you're in luck because this blog post will cover everything you need to know about hemp strains. We've even included a comprehensive guide to the various strains we use for our own products, so read on. 

What Are Hemp Strains?

To those well-acquainted with cannabis, Train Wreck, Sour Diesel, White Rhino, and Super Silver Haze are familiar favorites. 

"But aren't those marijuana strains?" 

Yes, but they are also available as hemp. The reason for this is that hemp and marijuana are the same speciescannabis. What separates the two (aside from, of course, legality) is the dry-weight concentration of Delta-9 THC. Hemp is cannabis with a 0.3% or lower concentration by dry weight, and marijuana contains any concentration higher than this. 

The way you can get these "marijuana strains" as hemp is that the plants will be selectively bred in a legal state so that the strain keeps its taste, smell, and synergy (from its terpene profile) while remaining under the legal limit for Delta-9. Essentially, it's the same strain but bred to have a lower Delta-9 THC concentration.

Based on its terpene profile, a strain will typically be classified as Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid. However, all strains- unless an "Absolute-" are technically a Hybrid that simply "leans" toward one end of the spectrum or the other.

What Is Live Rosin and Live Resin?

Both live rosin and live resin are concentrates, meaning they're cannabis extracts that are rich in naturally occurring compounds. The production process for both live resin and live rosin starts with freshly harvested plant material that is then frozen to preserve the "living profile" of the plant. 

With live resin, a manufacturer runs a solvent through the frozen plant material at very low temperatures to break down membranes around the trichomes (crystalline structures on the plant rich in cannabis compounds). On the other hand, with live rosin, the plant material is put under a specialized, heated press under immense pressure to eventually "squeeze" out the concentrate.

Both premium concentrates are abundant in terpenesTerpenes are aromatic compounds found in plants. For example, pinene is a popular cannabis terpene, but it's also what gives pine trees their distinctive scent. But besides smell, some terpenes, such as myrcene, can offer synergy, which may help transport cannabinoids into the brain

For our edibles, we use live rosin combined with THC distillate since this offers a richer taste while not compromising on potency. For our disposables, we use live resin because the viscosity of this concentrate is better suited for a smoother vaping experience.
