The name live is attached to live resins and live terpenes because they are gotten from fresh cannabis plants. As stated earlier, most cannabis concentrates are gotten from plant material that has been cured or dried. Live resins on the other hand make use of fresh flower buds and sugar leaves while leaving out the stems and large fan leaves. Another special characteristic is the flash-freezing of the plant material which helps to retain the terpenes, cannabinoids, and trichomes. This helps in ensuring the final products have special flavors and aromas thanks to the terpenes.
