Cannabis has come a long way since the beginning of legalization, and it’s for the better. The quality of cannabis that is being produced is a lot better due to the advancement of technology. This has resulted in improved methods to consume cannabis. For example: vape pens have become a huge hit, and they’re no longer reserved for nicotine smokers. The cannabis world offers a variety of different types of weed to people who vape. Some of the popular types of weed to vape are dried flower turned into vapour with the PAX vape system, distillates, and Live Resin, which is becoming increasingly popular. Live Resin is on the rise, but what exactly is Live Resin and where can you find it in the East York area? We answer your burning questions surrounding Live Resin, like what it is, how it’s made, and where you can purchase it near Oakwood Village and Broadview North. 



What is Live Resin?

Live Resin is a cannabis concentrate that uses freshly harvested marijuana plants that are flash-frozen to preserve the freshness of the plant. Live Resin is quickly becoming a favourite among cannabis users for people who enjoy vaping or use dabs. If you’re looking for resin in Broadview North or resin in Oakwood Village – Weedjar is the place for you. 


How is Live Resin Made?

Live Resin is made through a hydrocarbon extraction method. Live Resin producers take fresh marijuana plants and flash freeze them, which is an important step as it preserves the trichomes of a marijuana plant. By doing this, it preserves the natural terpenes that are found in a marijuana plant, this makes it much more flavourful and has more of an embodied richness to the final product. In many extraction methods when creating cannabis concentrates, the terpenes are burned off because of the high-boiling temperatures that are often used. Since the hydrocarbon process has a boiling point of -37 degrees, this maintains the integrity of the cannabis plant. 


What are the Benefits of Live Resin?

There are a few benefits of using Live Resin products, such as: 

More Terpenes

Live Resin contains more of the complete marijuana plant, which results in a higher concentration of terpenes. 

Full-Spectrum Flavour 

Since the terpenes are not burned off during the extraction process, this helps maintain the flavour of the cannabis strain. In addition, it captures the full chemical profile of a plant and usually has a stronger aroma. 

It’s Stronger 

Live Resin is highly potent and has improved therapeutic benefits. Live Resin also provides the benefit of allowing you to use less and still get a lot out of it. 


How Do You Use Live Resin?

Our budtenders at Weedjar in East York, including Broadview North and Oakwood Village would tell you that the best way to consume Live Resin is through vaping or dabbing.

What is the Difference Between Cannabis Rosin and Cannabis Resin?
