Usually, most hemp is dried and cured before the extraction process. To get live resin, the extract and active ingredients are removed just a few hours after harvesting. Terpene starts to decay soon after harvest, so this is the best way to preserve it. Understandably, live resin extracts can be expensive. However, they provide potency levels that are hard to match with any other form of concentrate. Live resin has significantly higher terpene concentrations than any other form of CDB extract. You can vape or smoke live resin extracts or eat them raw.
