What is Delta 9 Live Rosin?
What is Delta-9 Live Rosin?
In recent years, live rosin has been the most popular new trend in the cannabis concentrate industry. In terms of cost per gram, they are often the priciest item sold by dispensaries. But is the high cost justified? Well, the time and effort put in to making it, might give us an indication as to the expensive price tag. Let’s look at how it’s made.
Producers use plants high in trichomes and terpenes to create these compounds. Later, the plants are sifted and pressed so that lesser quantities of higher-quality product may be harvested. When compared to butane hash oils that are mass-produced in vast quantities, the price will obviously reflect the higher complexity of work and superior quality of the raw materials used in its production.
With live rosin, you may enjoy the full spectrum of taste from the highest-quality cannabis available. So, as you can imagine, genuine aficionados are eagerly snatching up live rosin everywhere they can.
Some people have conflicting definitions of what "live rosin" is, and so we want to do our best to try and explain it, to our best interpretation and understanding of it.
Delta-9 Live Rosin, what is it?
Delta-9 rosin is a concentrate of cannabis (hemp) that does not use any solvents in its production. Under extreme pressure, flowers, hash, or bubble hash exude a yellowish or golden sap. Flower rosin and hash rosin are the two most common kinds of rosin. However, "live rosin" refers to rosin extracted from bubble hash created with fresh, uncured hemp plants.
What is the potency of Delta-9 Live Rosin?
The proportion of THC in live rosin is much greater when it is created from marijuana, however this raises the issue of how potent this substance really is. In contrast, the Delta-9 THC content in live rosin extracted from a hemp plant is legally allowed to be no more than 0.3% by dry weight. But the power of live rosin isn't in its extraction process, it’s how it is made. During production, the plant's original terpene composition is kept intact. When combined with hemp's Delta-9 THC, terpenes may have synergistic effects. To this day, scientists can't agree on whether or not cannabis sativa and cannabis indica actually represent two distinct species.
That said, it is well established that their terpene profiles are completely different from one another. Among cannabis consumers, sativa is more popular throughout the day, while indica is often considered more soothing and often used at night, when one might be…”inda’ couch”. However, while there is general consensus as to how sativas and indicas make people feel. It is always important to remember, and restate that cannabinoids, terpenes, and their they hybrid combinations have varying effects on different people. So it is always best practice to start off small, until you know how each will affect you.
Differences Between Live Rosin & Regular Rosin
Rosin may be broken down into three distinct groups. There are three main varieties of rosin: flower, hash, and live. Live rosin is distinct from other types of rosin since it utilizes raw, unprocessed hemp as its "basis," whereas flower rosin employs cured CBD flower and hemp-derived hash rosin use hash produced from CBD flower.
In this case, bubble hash is responsible for the live rosin. Bubble hash for live rosin, however, requires newly harvested hemp plants. Our live rosin Delta-9 gummies (the Delta-9 is derived from hemp and is less than 0.3%), for example, include both indica and sativa characteristics because of the preservation of their respective terpene profiles.
Higher Cost to Make = Higher End Cost
In the end, high quality and labor-intensive production procedures are what drives up the cost of live rosin. First you want to get terpene and trichome-rich flowers that have been frozen soon after being cut, in order to mitigate any drying out of the cannabis.
Then the frozen buds are put into what is called an extraction bag, and is washed for 4 to 5 minutes, with water as cold as you can possibly get it. Ice made with very pure water is also used to maintain the cold temperature needed for this step, and it is also best if the room where this is taking place, is also very cold.
This part of the process is called agitation, which is the beginning process to separate your trichome heads. Now everything is drained into what are called micron bags. These bags four or five bags are put into each other (layering), starting with the lower sized, filtering micron bag, and ending with a very small sized, filtering micron bag. The liquid at this point, will have a yellow-ish hue.
After the liquid has flowed into and through the micron bags, in the final bag (smallest micron size), will be the extracted trichomes.
When starting with the highest quality, and if your procedures are dialed in, you will end up with “full melt” bubble hash. Which is considered the very best as it leaves no residual when being dabbed.
The bubble hash is spread onto a tray and freeze dried for around 24 hours. This is done to keep the product stable, and to prevent any mold from forming.
After the freeze dried is done, it is finally ready to be pressed into rosin.
Advantages of Using Live Rosin
Because of how it is made, live rosin contains no chemical solvents and is extremely pure, thus making it one of the safest ways to use cannabis.
And many claim that live rosin is also more effective than other extracts because it includes the whole spectrum of chemicals found in the plant. Check out our offering here. (We’ll link to product or category page here).
