The Ultimate Guide: How To Smoke Live Resin
From rolling joints to packaging bowls, the cannabis business has gone a long way. You may now consume cannabis in a variety of ways. There are several methods to consume high-quality pot, whether you prefer vaping, dabbing, topicals, or edibles. For many people, smoking is the preferred method of escape. It's traditional, straightforward, and tasty, with virtually immediate results.
Smoking cannabis will never go out of style, but live resin is a fantastic option if you want something a bit more strong and tasty. It's terpy, delicious, and powerful. Live resin is unrivalled in terms of taste. To capture the real flavour of the strain, this juicy, vivid extract is prepared using the freshest cannabis available.
Let's get into the specifics of how to smoke live resin and what other variables you should think about while you search for your ideal strain.
Overview: Live Resin
A cannabis extract derived from the whole, live bloom of the cannabis plant is known as live resin. When the trichomes are mature and overflowing with taste, the plants are cut down at the peak of harvest. Extractors commonly flash-freeze buds and save them in the freezer for later use. We chop down the fresh plant and extract it within 24 hours after harvesting it at BLOOM. There were no cryogenics or freezers available for long-term storage. This method protects the delicate trichomes, preventing harm to the cannabinoids and terpenes that would otherwise be lost during the drying and curing process or when kept for lengthy periods of time.
Because the cannabinoids and terpenes were not damaged during harvest, their concentrations are substantially higher than in many other types of extracts, making our live resin cartridges incredibly strong and fragrant. Live resin extraction is an art form that produces some of the most delicious and terpene-rich smokable and dabbable extracts on the market.
How to Smoke a Live Resin Cartridge
Because of their convenience, cost, and ease of use, cartridges are a popular choice. They're also easy to transport, never dirty, and delicious. What isn't to love? The crystallised honey left at the bottom of the jar resembles live resin, which is a thick, saucy extract. The liquid is too thick to fit into a vape cartridge when it is first extracted. We create a flawless live resin cartridge using a unique blend of extraction, distillation, and terpene composition. A vape cartridge is a wonderful alternative for anybody asking how to smoke live resin.
They're not only fun to smoke, but the high amounts of cannabinoids and terpenes make them a powerful treatment for patients. Terpenes have been shown to help with a variety of medical and mental issues, including pain relief and mood enhancement. Anyone may use cartridges, however we recommend that you read the following helpful hints first.
Start With a Low Dose and Wait
Everyone's endocannabinoid system is distinct, and we all react to cannabinoids and terpenes differently. The only way to figure out what works for you is to experiment with different strains and dosages. Choose from BLOOM's selection of live resin cartridges to get started. Every palette will be satisfied by the variety of flavours and terpene profiles available. Start with a one- to two-second puff—no there's need to pull deeply on the pen at this point. Simply inhale deeply for a few seconds before exhaling. Within minutes, the effects start to show. However, full effects might take up to a half-hour. If you want to go a bit higher, take one or two more puffs and wait to see how you feel. Continue to use it as much as you want.
Know Your Terpenes
Terpenes are a class of chemical compounds found in nature that are created by plants. Many plants, herbs, flowers, fruits, and even certain animals and insects have fragrant scents because of them. These chemicals also contribute to a cannabis strain's overall mood and impact.
Did you know that the terpene linalool is responsible for lavender's relaxing, flowery aroma? Myrcene is responsible for the delicious, musky scent of myrcene, and limonene is an energetic terpene best known in the zest of citrus fruits. Cannabis contains all of these terpenes (plus over 100 more!).
Terpenes and cannabinoids interact together to generate what is known as the "entourage effect." This concept refers to the overall calming impact of ingesting these naturally occurring plant compounds in combination. For example, consuming only one isolated cannabinoid, such as THC, might get you high, but you wouldn't be able to benefit from the other cannabinoids and terpenes. For both the body and the intellect, they just operate better together.
Take Note of Your Experience
Keeping a notepad on hand to record your experiences might aid in the discovery of your optimum strain. Finding your ideal puff may take a little time and experience, but dialling in your amount and chosen combination is delightful. To keep track of each encounter, jot down any or all of the following in your diary.
Starting Point: How are you feeling right now? So, how did you spend your day?
Physical Considerations: Have you had anything to eat recently? Is your body properly hydrated? Do you have any discomfort?
Are you well-rested at this time of day? Are you getting ready for bed or did you just wake up?
Are you alone or with a companion? Where do you smoke (inside, outside, at home, or somewhere else)?
Did you do any physical activity today? Do you work out on a regular basis? *Note whether cannabis helps or hinders your physical activity.
Cannabis Specifications: What is the source of the stress? What method are you using to consume it (vape, dab, joint, bowl, etc.)? What are the cannabinoid and terpene profiles?
These are some ideas, but feel free to expand on them as much as you like. The more data you can collect, the more successful your experiment will be. Sometimes, merely seeking personal counsel to acquire a decent recommendation for a first effort might be beneficial. Many dispensaries have knowledgeable staff who would be pleased to assist you in achieving your objectives and give recommendations.
How to Smoke Live Resin Budder
Extracting live cannabis plants within two hours of harvesting produces live resin budder. Budder is creamy and flowing with terpenes, similar to living resin sauce. Because of its texture, it's a simple to use extract. It's neither too liquidy nor too sticky to handle. What about the taste? Unrivaled in the industry.
Budder is evaporated in a dab rig using a collection of instruments that are intended to vaporise the budder at the exact temperature needed. Dabbing is a process in and of itself, and it is unquestionably an art form for the discerning. This is how you do it.
Heat up the Nail With a Torch
Every dab rig comes with a nail where the extract will be put while it vaporises. The nail can be formed of glass, titanium, or quartz, and the type of rig determines the material. The first step is to use a torch to heat the nail. It's fine to heat the nail till it glows red for the first time, especially if this is your first time. This gets rid of any contaminants.
Wait for the Nail to Cool
Allow the nail to cool for a few minutes after that. 300-3600 F is the optimal temperature for live resin budder. An infrared thermometer may be used to keep track of the cooling process. The optimal temperature of the nail might take anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds to reach. The only way to be certain is to use a thermometer. Lower temps allow for more taste and a less unpleasant experience when dabbing. Heat destroys taste and wastes a lot of the extract.
Place Budder on the Surface of the Nail
Scoop up a little quantity of budder with a dab tool and apply it immediately to the nail's surface. The heat will evaporate the budder, signalling that you should begin inhaling the vapour carefully. Vaporizing is a more delicate procedure than smoking a bong or joint, so don't take a heavy hit and inhale rapidly. Cover the nail with a carb cap if one is available to keep in more heat and allow for the greatest vapour.
Exhale Vapor Immediately
There's no need to hold in the vapour; simply exhale and totally clear your lungs. Within 5-10 minutes, you'll notice the effects. Before taking any additional dabs, wait and see how you feel.
Take Note of Your Experience
Just like with a vape pen, keep track of your dabbing experience. Consider your state of mind and goal before you begin, as well as the sort of extract you'll be using. It's vital to pay attention to the THC percentage and terpene profile, as well as the dabbing temperature.
