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. While live resin retains a sap-like texture, live sauce is composed of a liquid portion and a solid portion. This is due to the chemical differences between the two. The liquid component of live sauce is known as high terpene extract (HTE) or terp oil. This contains the aromatic qualities of cannabis – think tastes and smells. The solid portion of sauce is composed of THCa crystals or the psychoactive component of cannabis that becomes activated with heat. These crystals are often referred to as “THC diamonds” or “diamonds” which can be further “mined” 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. While not all live sauces and resins are full-spectrum, those that do encourage what is known 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 are renowned for the powerful response they elicit within the body.
Pink Kush, as coveted as its OG Kush relative, is an indica-dominant hybrid with powerful body-focused effects. In its exceptional variations, pink hairs burst from bright green buds barely visible under a blanket of sugar-like trichomes, with traces of a sweet vanilla and candy perfume.
