What Is Live Rosin

What Is Live Rosin

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 23 December 2020 in

There aren’t many concentrates that have unanimous agreement among cannabis consumers as a superior product, yet extract lovers across the spectrum clamor over live rosin. While we have known about rosin for years, it was finally time to up the game. So, what is live rosin?

In this guide, you will find information on the following: 

  • The physical properties of live rosin

  • How live rosin compares to rosin

  • The best way to store live rosin

  • The average cost of a gram of live rosin

  • And some tips on if it is legal (or worth it) to make at home

what is live rosin

Let’s Learn About Live Rosin

Rosin is a concentrated marijuana product that owes a large part of its fame to the method it is produced. We will get into that more later; for now, just know all rosin is solventless. 

Rosin looks much like shatter, a concentrate produced using a hydrocarbon such as butane or propane during extraction. Shatter has a texture that cracks, snaps, and shatters apart. Rosin is traditionally more of a clear to somewhat opaque shatter-to-sap texture. 

Live rosin has a bit of a sappy texture and a color that ranges from light amber to clear and reflective. Its luscious, glistening beeswax color draws the eyes into it.

How is Rosin Different from Other Concentrates?

Live rosin is at the higher end of the quality spectrum and carries the price to prove it. We will get more specific on pricing in a bit. Many common waxes, shatters, budders, badders, etc. utilize a hydrocarbon to strip the cannabinoids (THC, CBD, among others) from the plant material.

Most of the hydrocarbon is then purged from the residual material and prepared into various textures for numerous purposes. Not all of the butane or propane has been purged, however. While the remaining hydrocarbon extractant may be in the final product, there are mixed feelings about this. 

Some cannabis lovers believe hydrocarbon extractions can be just fine. Others like the idea that solventless concentrates will always have superior flavor. Enter: rosin.

What is Rosin? 

Rosin is a solventless cannabis concentrate made using two very simple principles - but using them in specific ways - heat and pressure. That is all it takes. Rosin, like resin, is not a new word but one that we borrowed from other products throughout history and across industries. 

Rosin provides a potent cannabis product produced under very specific quantities of heat, pressure, and time. There is a small difference in potency when compared to other common concentrates. The lack of a solvent to thoroughly plunder the plant of its content is largely to blame.

Rosin can be made legally at home as it is not produced using pressurized chemical solvents that can cause home explosions. Unlike BHO or PHO extracts which are a felony offense, rosin can be made (not well) with an item as simple as a hair straightener, a gram of flower, and some parchment. 

live rosin vs resin

What Is Live Rosin? 

Like its family member rosin, live rosin is a solventless hash product produced under heat and pressure. Unlike traditional rosin, however, live rosin has a very specific difference - one that makes it exceedingly more difficult to produce. 

Making a product “live” refers to extracting the concentrate using freshly grown material. Not harvested and dried, but instead harvested and then immediately used in extracts. This preserves or amplifies certain flavors within the extract. 

How Do Rosin and Live Rosin Compare?

Commonly made using dried flower, kief, or water or bubble hash, rosin always comes from the dried or lightly processed cannabis plant. This can affect the potency, the terpene profile, and cannabis lovers and product makers have noticed the difference. 

Live rosin’s superior freshness has extract enthusiasts melting over the complex flavor and robust experience. The texture of live rosin resembles a more whipped, grainy butter than the light amber honey of traditional rosin. Live rosin is sometimes referred to as “rosin batter” due to the whipped honey color and texture.  

Both rosin and live rosin have a potency of between 60%-70% THC, slightly lower than many other forms of concentrate but still more than many cannabis products. 

Rosin and live rosin each carry a price point commonly higher than other forms of hydrocarbon-based extraction methods. Whereas a typical mid-range gram of wax is $30-$40 per gram, live rosin is between $60-$100 per gram and rosin is between $40-$60. 

How is Live Rosin Made? 

Both rosin and live rosin can be made using bubble or water hash, which are two of the oldest forms of hash. Live rosin utilizes fresh, non-dried cannabis flowers to produce the bubble hash, capturing the fresh terpenes and harolding the “live” spirit of the product name.

Bubble hash is not the same thing as kief or dry sift, kief can become a bubble or water hash. Heck, kief can even become rosin.

Two Tips on Storing Live Rosin

Like other “live” cannabis products, there are more terpenes available. Sometimes this can look like a sauce around the extract. To best preserve these flavor sauces, along with the rosin itself, there are a few things to keep in mind. 

  1. Keep a lid on

An airtight seal is the most important factor in maintaining the quality of live rosin. Oxygen can make the product visually degrade in a span of a few days, so it’s best to just keep an airtight seal on the product. 

  1. Keep it in a cool, dark place

Much like our groceries, keeping live rosin out of sunlight helps preserve the freshness. While a closet or bedside table can work, a spot in the refrigerator works best.

Best Concentrates in Colorado

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 27 January 2021 in Canna Blog

Sometimes flower just doesn’t cut it. Maybe you’ve built up a tolerance, or maybe you’re just looking for a better high. Good thing for concentrates. These are the best concentrates in Denver.

What are Concentrates?        

Whether you're a first-time or experienced dabber, you might still be wondering exactly what concentrates are. Deciding what concentrate to choose and knowing how to use it properly takes a little background knowledge.

Concentrates, as defined by Weedmaps, are “substances in which the more desirable properties of cannabis, namely cannabinoids are terpenes, have been isolated.” Basically, concentrates are the best part of marijuana in a convenient package. Scientifically, it’s a bit more complicated. Suffice it to say concentrates will get you higher than the average flower.

Best concentrates in Colorado

Types of Concentrates

         Concentrates come in a variety of forms:

·         Live Resin

·         Shatter

·         Wax

·         Budder

·         Crystalline (Diamonds)

Though there are many different types of concentrates, they are essentially all the same product—extracted, compounded marijuana oils. They are named differently based on the consistency, density, and texture of the end product, as well as differences in how the concentrates are prepared.

How are Concentrates Used?

Some concentrates can be used topically or taken orally, while others are used in a vaporizer commonly known as a vape-pen. Dabbing is also popular. This is the process of heating up a small amount of concentrate such as live resin with a device called a dab rig, and inhaling the vapors.

Think heating up a drop of hash on a penknife and breathing in the smoke—same basic concept, only now you can buy an actual factory-made contraption for this. Concentrates can also be cooked into edibles, or you can go the old-fashioned route and top off a bowl of ordinary flower to give it an extra kick. 

Different concentrates in Colorado

Live Resin

Live resin is simply cannabis oil that has been extracted from fresh flowers that have been freeze-dried rather than air-dried and cured the typical way. This produces a different flavor in the resin, imparting a more aromatic and floral bouquet. Live resin is usually somewhat gooey in consistency and typically has a higher terpene content.

Shatter

Shatter is heat extracted or chemically extracted cannabis oil that has hardened into a glasslike substance that's usually amber colored and mostly transparent. When it's heated, it becomes a viscous liquid similar to thickened honey. Shatter can be relatively inexpensive, with deals as low as 15 dollars a gram.

Wax

Wax refers to concentrated marijuana oil that has been extracted--often with butane or other chemicals—to produce a thick, oily, and wax-like substance that can be smoked or vaporized. Unlike shatter which is see-through and hard, wax is soft and opaque.

Budder

Like the other concentrates, budder is extracted from flower to make a more potent product. Unlike wax or shatter, budder has the consistency of, well, butter. It’s a type of hash oil that can be up to 70 percent THC.

Crystalline

Also known as dust or diamonds, crystalline is concentrated THCA that comes in a solid form. Think kief. Crystalline often has little flavor because of the relatively low amount of terpenes but makes up for that lack of potency.

The Best of the Best Concentrates

Colorado is home to some of the best, award-winning concentrate companies in America. Recreational weed use has been legal in Colorado since 2012, allowing local businesses to branch out and perfect their extraction techniques. The use of concentrates by stoners continues to grow as time goes by.

Here are some extraction experts that make some of the best concentrates you can find in Colorado:

·         Green Dot Labs, based in Boulder, makes some of the best live resin in Colorado. Deals on their live resin can be found here.

·         Sano Gardens, based in Commerce City, specializes in cannabis extraction. Their live resin is popular among Coloradoans.

·         710 Labs makes some of the best concentrates for both Colorado and California.

·         VIOLA is a marijuana company started by former NBA player Al Harrington. Their concentrates can be found in dispensaries across Colorado.

·         Nomad Extracts make their concentrates from Colorado-grown cannabis. They’ve won awards for both their wax and shatter, among others. You can find their platinum wax for 30 dollars a gram at dispensaries in the Denver-metro area.

·         Lazercat Cannabis are Colorado-based growers and extractors. Their live rosin is a premium concentrate.

·         Kush Masters is an extraction company “nested in a log cabin next to Boulder’s Flatiron mountains.” You can get eight grams of their wax for 120 dollars in Denver.
