What is “Live Resin”?
‘Live Resin’ is a specific type of cannabis extract whereby fresh cannabis flowers (i.e., buds not yet dried and cured) are harvested at their apex of maturity, cryogenically flash frozen under very cold temperatures and then used as the extraction material in the manufacturing process of that extract. The process of manufacturing Live Resin is an effort to retain as much of the fresh terpenoids (and cannabinoids) from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete and intense terpene and cannabinoid experience.
Type: Indica-Dominant Hybrid (typically 80%/20%)
Genotype: Blueberry = (Juicy Fruit X Oregon Purple Thai) X Afghani Indica
Original breeder is DJ Short. Winner of many CC.
NOTE: Like GSC and Blue Dream, Blueberry has been stepped on a lot over the years and, as a result, there are many cuts out there. Some are excellent examples while others are genetically poor imitations.

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library page.
Physical Characteristics: Golden straw, soft & fresh granules.
Terpene Experience: In its intact state, this sample emitted a mild odor of pungent blueberry. When dabbed, it indeed tasted mildly like sweet, musky blueberries with a noticeable earthiness, especially on the exhale.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library page.
Effects: Patients love this strain’s effects for its heavy dose of relaxation. This is a potent body high that also provides lots of euphoria in the classic, old school way. While the effects were definitely noticeable, I did find them to be a bit less potent than I expected, given the strain and batch numbers.
Duration of Effects: 2-3 hours
May Help With: Body pain, nerve pain, anxiety, stress, PTSD, insomnia, appetite (and more)
Good terpene retention and purity. I felt this batch was a somewhat subdued version of a full on Blueberry Live Resin experience.
