What is Live Rosin?

When it comes to the best product in the hemp market, live rosin is the highest tier you can go, and no, we are not talking about live resin or the standard form of rosin. Live rosin is in its own category, as it should be.

Before we get started, take everything you know about rosin from hemp, and place it to the side, because live rosin is everything you would expect in a concentrate but taken to a whole new level.

Unless you are a cannabis enthusiast, this may be new to you, but don’t worry. We are here to explore and clarify the differences between these extracts and why you should switch over to live rosin today.

What is Live Rosin?

Live rosin is an amber-colored substance made from bubble hash that is collected only by using heat and pressure. This form of rosin is for those looking to experience the richness of terpenes and the full spectrum of cannabinoids, as this concentration contains more terpenes and other hemp-derived compounds than any other extract.

In comparison to other methods, live rosin uses bubble hash that is completely solventless to ensure the preservation of the flower's natural flavor and terpenes. Once the bubble hash is made, it will be pressed between 300 to 1000 pounds per square inch of pressure, which will then squeeze out the live rosin.

Rosin Vs. Live Rosin

It is common to assume that live rosin and rosin would be identical, but the two have one distinct difference—how the flower is prepared.

Concentrate connoisseurs claim that live rosin is superior due to its flavorful taste based on the freshness of the product, which attributes to how it is processed.

Live rosin is only made from fresh flower that have never been cured/dried. This method will retain the maximum number of terpenes and cannabinoids—making it a high-end product on the market.

Like live rosin, rosin is solventless and is made by applying heat and pressure to plant matter. But the main difference is that this method uses dried flower, kief, or hash. Because the hemp is dry, this extraction process will not have as many terpenes as live rosin will.

Live Resin Vs. Live Rosin

The primary difference between live resin and live rosin is the way that it’s made. Like live rosin, it uses fresh hemp, but in this case, it will be extracted out by a light hydrocarbon solvent, such as butane, propane, or alcohol.

Although this method is different from live rosin, it will still produce a high volume of the plant’s natural terpenes and cannabinoids, giving you nearly identical results.

But once again, fans prefer to use live rosin instead, because it allows them to enjoy hemp to fullest, without any solvents.

Ways to Consume Live Rosin

Based on customer feedback and the strenuous process to create live rosin from hemp, there is no surprise why members of the cannabis community speak so highly of it, but how can you consume it?

Just like you would with flower or hash rosin, you can use live rosin the exact same way. However, if you don’t have experience in this sector of cannabis, you may want to know how to consume it.

Dabbing

If you want to enjoy live rosin dabs to the fullest, you’re going to need a few things. For one, make sure you have high-quality live rosin wax. Skipping on this will not only affect the taste, but it may not give you what you’re hoping to achieve. Along with your wax, it’s time to get some tools. This will include:

  • Dab Rig (Water Pipe)
  • Nail (Bowl)
  • Dab Torch
  • Dabber

You can make plenty of choices to improve or customize your gear, but above is the basic equipment you will need to get started.

To start, grab your water pipe and begin by adding fresh water into the chamber of the rig. Following this, you can either preheat your bowl or not—whichever way you choose will depend on your preference.

After this, you will take your dabber and place the hemp rosin in the nail. From there, you will use your torch to adjust the temperature, and in seconds, you will find yourself ready to inhale all of its glory.

Vaping

Vaping live rosin from hemp is one of the easiest ways to get the effects you want, without all the work that goes into setting up a dab rig.

All you need to have is a vaporizer designed for concentrates, specifically known as a dab pen. You can find this device at almost any smoke shop or hemp store for a relatively reasonable price.

To use this tool, all you need to do is grab your wax and place it on the dab pen’s coils. After the device is heated up, it is ready to go.

Add It to Your Flower

Dabbing and vaping is a powerful way to enjoy all that hemp has to offer, but for some, they prefer a lighter version of it.

If you aren’t looking for total euphoria, you may want to try adding live rosin hash on top of your CBD flower instead. You can do this by packing your bowl as you usually do and sprinkling a little on top, or by rolling a joint and adding it in there. Either way, this is the perfect alternative for those with a low tolerance that are looking to test out rosin. 

Edibles

Rosin can be used for many different things—even to make edibles. Simply melt it down with saturated fat, such as butter or coconut oil, and mix it together. Once it’s mixed, you can add it to nearly anything. But what if you don’t have the time to do this?

Luckily for you, if you want to experience live rosin edibles without the work, we have exactly what you need. At Hometown Hero, we are launching our new line of Live Rosin Gummies in November 2021. These gummies will not only impress you but blow you away.

Takeaway

Although live rosin is more expensive than the average hemp product, this extract will showcase the raw beauty of cannabis and all the unique effects that it can bring. Whenever you think of concentrates, remember that live rosin is, and will continue to be, the crown of hemp.
