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.

In its intact state, this live resin wax gave off very strong and complex odors of pungent tangerine, sweet floral notes and hints of Haze pungency. A wonderful, powerful set of aromas. When dabbed, this sample tasted of pungent tangerine followed by sweetness, light spiciness and perfume notes, especially on the exhale. An excellent, full-bodied terpenes experience that is reflective of a well-executed live resin.
NOTE: The terpene levels listed above are for the Tangerine Haze flower and NOT for this extract. I'm providing this information to show the terpenes for the strain used to make this wax.

Effects: As with the flower, these effects are also a wonderfully uplifting cerebral experience that’s not harsh; however, the potency is several times stronger and it has a creeper element (delay of onset) to it. Something to keep in mind, since this stuff tastes so darn good. And although I experienced no raciness or anxiety, newbies and casual users certainly could and so should take it slow.
Duration of Effects: 2-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with energy and mood. May also help with promoting creativity, appetite, stress, depression (and more).
PTS has perfected the cultivation and finishing of Tangerine Haze so there’s no surprise that this live resin was an exceptional example.
