Learning More About Cannabis Concentrates: What is Live Resin ‘Sugar’?

live resin

If you are looking for a more intense cannabis experience, then concentrates are your best bet. There are many different types of cannabis concentrates, including bubble hash, wax, and badder as well as shatter and live resin.

In this blog, we are going to cover what live resin sugar is, how it is made, and which live resin sugar offerings we have available on our Society menu.


Learning About Live Resin Sugar

As with all cannabis concentrates, live resin sugar undergoes an extraction process that removes the desired compounds from the plant. Live resin and its related concentrates, like sugar, are made with fresh frozen cannabis plants to eliminate the drying, curing, and trimming phases of harvesting.

What remains is a yellowish-to-amber substance that contains just cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. The THC concentration of concentrates is significantly higher than that of flower, and the terpene profile can become more intense as well.

What largely differentiates each concentrate, aside from the differences in extraction processes, is the texture. The texture of live resin sugar wax is a lot like wet sugar that hasn’t melted it. You can also compare it to granules of sugar mixed in thick honey. It’s not as brittle or hard as shatter, but it’s not as soft as badder.

The THC concentration of live sugar can be as low as 60% and as high as 90%. With that in mind, it’s important to take it slow when using cannabis concentrates.

You can wrap a small amount of your live resin sugar around your joint or blunt! (Warm the concentrate up so it’s at a malleable temperature, snaking it around the outside base of your method of choice. Enjoy!)
