What the **** is Live & Hash Rosin

Have you heard of live and hash rosin?

If you’re into extracts, the chances are that you have. But, for those who are unsure you may be asking: what exactly are they and how do they differ?

Let’s start with the basics. Rosin is a cannabis concentrate that’s made by applying heat and pressure to the trichomes of the cannabis plant.

Trichomes are the little hair-like things on the buds that contain cannabinoids and terpenes.

When you press them with heat, they burst and release their resinous oils which are then collected and compressed into a sticky, amber-colored substance that’s high in cannabinoids and terpenes.

 

Now, let’s move on to live rosin.

This is made using freshly harvested cannabis plants that are flash-frozen to preserve their terpenes and other volatile compounds. By using fresh plants, live rosin producers can capture a wider range of terpenes and other compounds that they couldn’t with dried, cured cannabis.

To make live rosin, they press the frozen buds using heat and pressure, similar to regular rosin. The result is a sticky, flavorful concentrate that’s high in cannabinoids and terpenes. Because of the higher cost of using fresh, frozen plants and the complexity of the production process, live rosin is usually more expensive than regular rosin.

 

Let’s move onto hash rosin.

Hash Rosin

Hash Rosin

This is made using cured, dried cannabis plants that have been processed into hash beforehand. Hash is made by separating the trichomes from the rest of the plant material, resulting in a concentrated, resinous substance. This hash is then pressed into rosin using heat and pressure, similar to live rosin.

 

The key difference between live and hash rosin is the starting material. Live rosin uses fresh, frozen plants, while hash rosin uses cured, dried plants that have been processed into hash. This difference in starting material can affect the flavor and aroma of the final product, as well as the range of cannabinoids and terpenes present.

So, what about their effects?

Rosin being Pressed

Live rosin is usually more flavorful and aromatic due to its wider range of terpenes and other compounds, while hash rosin is more potent and potentially more sedative due to its higher concentration of cannabinoids.

 

In summary, live and hash rosin are two popular forms of cannabis concentrate that are produced using different starting materials. While both types are high in cannabinoids and terpenes, live rosin is typically more flavorful and aromatic, while hash rosin is more potent and potentially more sedative. So whether you’re into live or hash rosin, just enjoy them in the sunshine for an enhanced experience.
