Live Resin/Sauce & What and Why?
Live Sauce is a live resin derivative. The physical difference between live resin and live sauce is apparent in the consistency of the substance. Live resin maintains a sap-like texture, while live sauce consists of a liquid portion and a solid portion. This is due to the chemical differences between the two. The liquid component of live sauce consists of high terpene extract (HTE) or terp oil. This contains the aromatic qualities of cannabis – think tastes and smells.The solid portion of sauce consists of THCa crystals, the psychoactive component of cannabis that activates with heat. People often use terms like “THC diamonds” or “diamonds” to describe these crystals, which one can further extract as terp sauce.
Many live sauce and resin products are full-spectrum, meaning the goal of the extraction process is to retain the integrity of the active compounds found in the cannabis trichomes. Not all live sauces and resins are full-spectrum, but those that achieve it encourage what we know as the “Entourage Effect.” This refers to the phenomenon in which all of the compounds available in cannabis work in tandem to produce a synergistic effect. Full-spectrum products elicit a powerful response within the body and are renowned for it.
