Can You Smoke Live Resin?

Live resin is a relatively new product made from fresh frozen cannabis extracted with CO2. The process of making live resin is similar to solvent extraction. But, instead of using a solvent like butane or propane, CO2 is used to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the flower.

The resulting product has a very high terpene content and low cannabinoid content— this means that the effects are more mellow than if you were to smoke dried flowers.

Because of its low cannabinoid content, live resin produces less of a high than other forms of cannabis, such as kief or hash. However, it does produce a very strong aroma and can be very potent in small amounts if not properly dosed.

Thanks to its fresh nature, live resin will burn up very quickly, so make sure you have plenty of time for smoking before you start hitting it! You should also use glass bongs or pipes when smoking live resin because plastic pipes may melt under high heat during combustion.

Best Way to Consume Live Resin

With cannabis extracts, you always want to make sure that the method you’re using suits the consistency of the product. When smoking live resin, there are different ways you can do it. Let’s explore some of them.

Using a Dab Rig

A dab rig is used to vaporize and consume cannabis concentrates such as shatter, wax, oil, and BHO. The size of the dab rig can vary from small pipes to large water pipes. The most popular dab rigs feature a nail at the bottom of the pipe and a dome with a carb hole on top.

Smoking live resin with a dab rig is done by heating your nail with a torch until it’s red hot. You then take your dabber tool, which is normally made out of glass or metal, and place it on top of your nail so that it heats up too. 

You then drop a small amount of live resin onto the hot surface and inhale it through the carb hole on top. The smoke will enter your lungs and then travel down to your throat, where you can taste all those delicious terpenes.

Bongs

Bongs are great for smoking live resin because they allow you to take huge hits without wasting any of your precious concentrate. They also help preserve the terpenes in your live resin by filtering out all of the harsh particulates from burning cannabis. This results in smoother hits that don’t irritate your throat as much as other methods of smoking marijuana extracts.

Vape pen

This is the most popular way of smoking live resin. A vape pen is a small, portable vaporizer that you can use to smoke your extracts. The best part is that you can control how much you smoke, so you don’t have to worry about getting too high on your first try.

Electronic Nails

Electronic nails, or e-nails, are the easiest way to smoke live resin. An e-nail is a heating element attached to a base that you can set on your table or desk. You place your dab rig on top of the e-nail, and it heats your nail or banger so that you can enjoy your dabs.

The advantage of using an electronic nail is that you don’t have to worry about whether or not your torch is lit or if it’s burning hot enough for your dab. You have to turn it on with an electronic nail, wait for the temperature to reach what you want, and then take a hit!

Best Way to Smoke Live Resin 

The best way to smoke live resin is to use a dab rig. A dab rig is a glass pipe with a slanted mouthpiece and a nail where you place the concentrate that you want to smoke. There are many different types of nails, but they all serve the same purpose – they heat up when you apply heat and smoke your extract.

Best Way to Smoke Live Resin Sand

You can smoke live resin sand with any smoking device that uses heat to vaporize your marijuana. The most popular method is using an oil rig (also known as a “dab rig”), which consists of a nail attached to a bong-like water pipe with an opening at the top where you can place your concentrate on top of the nail and then inhale through the pipe itself. This method requires more skill than most other ways of consuming concentrates because it requires heating your nail before placing your concentrate on it to melt down into a liquid instead of scorching and producing smoke.

Best Way to Dab Live Resin

The best way to dab live resin is to use a nail, which is made of glass or ceramic. They are made to be heated and cooled quickly, which allows for a smooth hit that’s not too hot.

Nails are also different from regular pipes and bongs because they don’t have water. Water cools down the vapor before it reaches your lungs, but there’s no need for that extra step with a nail.

The first step in dabs is to heat your nail until it’s red hot. You can do this by using a torch lighter or an electric nail. Then, you put some live resin extract on the nail, let it melt, and then inhale slowly through a glass pipe or bong attachment.

Best Way to Store Live Resin

The best way to store live resin is in a container that can be sealed tightly. This prevents air from getting in and oxidizing the bud.

If you want to use the live resin as soon as it’s made, you can store it in a mason jar or other glass container with an airtight lid. When saving some for later, you’ll want to keep it in an airtight container with a desiccant to absorb any moisture that may have gotten into your live resin.

You can use any glass mason jar or airtight plastic container with a screw-top lid. If possible, choose one with a rubber gasket around the lid to seal better and keep out the air more effectively.
