Cannabis concentrates have become increasingly popular in recent years, and one type that has gained a lot of attention from enthusiasts seeking to enhance their experience is live rosin. When it comes to infusing edibles, live rosin is the best ingredient that exists. This concentrate should not be confused with live resin or the standard form of rosin, which, as great as they are, simply can't compare.

Made using a unique process that involves pressing fresh, frozen cannabis buds, live rosin is known for its potent effects and rich flavor. Unlike other concentrates, live rosin's extraction process allows for a more complete preservation of the plant's terpenes and a unique flavor profile. In this article, we will explore the fascinating world of live rosin and everything you need to know about this highly sought-after cannabis concentrate.

What is Live Rosin?

Live rosin is a cannabis concentrate made by applying immense heat and pressure to bubble hash, as opposed to chemical solvents. This process is much more expensive and time-consuming than other extraction methods, as it requires pressing the bubble hash with 300 to 1,000 pounds per square inch of pressure. However, as a result, live rosin offers a higher concentration of aromatic terpenes and cannabinoids, making it ideal for those seeking to savor the nuanced flavor of cannabis and experience the full spectrum of hemp-derived compounds. 

Live Rosin is offered in a variety of forms. It is often infused into gummies and edibles, which feature robust and nuanced flavors, or simply sold as a pure concentrate (jam, bubble hash, or budder). 

Rosin Vs. Live Rosin

It is common to assume that live rosin and rosin are identical, but the two have one distinct, yet significant, difference—how the flower from which they are extracted is preparedConcentrate connoisseurs claim that live rosin is superior due to its flavorful taste and freshness, which can be attributed to how it is processed.

Live rosin is made from cannabis flower that has never been cured or dried. This method retains the maximum number of terpenes and cannabinoids, as the curing process tends to destroy these delicate plant compounds.

On the other hand, although rosin is also extracted via a solventless process that involves applying heat and pressure to plant matter, it uses dried flower, kief, or hash. Because the cannabis flower is dry, this extraction process will not yield as many aromatic, flavorful terpenes.

Live Resin Vs. Live Rosin

Live resin and live rosin also differ in their extraction processes, which lends to their unique properties and use cases.

Live resin is extracted from fresh cannabis flower, too, but the process is not solventless. Rather, live resin is typically drawn out using a light hydrocarbon solvent, such as butane, propane, or alcohol. Many consumers have concerns about the safety of this process and prefer not to use live resin at all, but the fact of the matter is that live resin is the superior option for vapes and smoking products due to its optimal viscosity.

Fortunately, an alternative method was developed for enthusiasts to enjoy the benefits of live resin. High-quality live resin, such as the kind infused into our live resin disposable vapes with THC-A liquid diamonds, is extracted using R134a, a non-toxic and non-corrosive solvent. 

However, when it comes to edibles, fans prefer to use live rosin over live resin, because it allows them to enjoy hemp to the fullest, without any solvents.

Ways to Consume Live Rosin

Given its high terpene content and the strenuous process that goes into making live rosin, there is no surprise why members of the cannabis community speak so highly of it. But how can you actually consume it?

If you're familiar with concentrates, it will be helpful to note that you can use live rosin the exact same way as hash rosin. However, if you don’t have experience using cannabis extracts, you may want to know how to consume it. Here are a few methods of using live rosin.

If you want to enjoy live rosin dabs to the fullest, you’re going to need a few things. For one, make sure you have high-quality live rosin wax. Skipping on this will not only affect the taste, but it may not give you what you’re hoping to achieve. Along with your wax, it’s time to get some tools. This will include:
  • Dab Rig (Water Pipe)
  • Nail (Bowl)
  • Dab Torch
  • Dabber
You can make plenty of choices to improve or customize your gear, but above is the basic equipment you will need to get started.

To start, grab your water pipe and begin by adding fresh water into the chamber of the rig. Following this, you can either preheat your bowl or not—whichever way you choose will depend on your preference.

After this, you will take your dabber and place the hemp rosin in the nail. From there, you will use your torch to adjust the temperature, and in seconds, you will find yourself ready to inhale all of its glory.


Vaping live rosin from hemp is one of the easiest ways to get the effects you want, without all the work that goes into setting up a dab rig.

All you need to have is a vaporizer designed for concentrates, specifically known as a dab pen. You can find this device at almost any smoke shop or hemp store for a relatively reasonable price. To use this tool, all you need to do is grab your wax and place it on the dab pen’s coils. After the device is heated up, it is ready to go.

However, as mentioned before, the viscosity of live resin is better suited for vaping than that of live rosin. For a smoother smoking experience and the convenience of a disposable vaping device, consider investing in a live resin disposable vape.

Add It to Your Flower

Dabbing and vaping is a powerful way to enjoy all that hemp has to offer, but some prefer a lighter version of it.

If you aren’t looking for total euphoria, you may want to try adding live rosin hash on top of your THCA flower instead. You can do this by packing your bowl as you usually do and sprinkling a little on top, or by rolling a joint and adding it in there. Either way, this is the perfect alternative for those with a low tolerance who are looking to test out rosin. 


Rosin can be used for many different things—even to make edibles. Simply melt it down with saturated fat, such as butter or coconut oil, and mix it together. Once it’s mixed, you can add it to nearly anything. But what if you don’t have the time to do this?
