Let’s Talk about HEMP | CBD | DELTA & more ..
Our Live Resin line starts with an always strain-specific input because it brings in the widest range of photochemistry that has an impact on therapeutic potential, experience, taste, and aroma. We then compound formulate additional cannabinoids with that specific strain-specific Live Resin chosen for its profile to reach the desired target effects. Our products use the nomenclature Busy Bee , Anytime, and Knockout instead of Sativa, Hybrid, and Indica as we feel the latter can be misleading but the categorization still useful.
BUSY BEE: Live Resin cultivars selected for cultivars possessing CBDv and THCv cannabinoids and terpene profiles which will guide the desired Sativa effect (Limonene, Beta-Caryophyllene, & Pinene), further supplemented with CBG to aid in the Focus Flow effect.
AROUND THE CLOCK: Live Resin cultivars selected for the most aromatic profiles that aren’t dominant in cannabinoids or terpenes that may be energetic or sedating focusing instead on a more balanced experience aimed at enabling a Breezy Day.
LIGHTS OUT: Live Resin cultivars selected for their predominantly relaxing terpene profiles (Linalool & Myrcene) and then further supplemented with CBN to help guide the desired Indica experience of the STAY BED CHILL effect.
We only formulate with authentic Live Resin inputs for these products, we source cultivars from farms doing the greatest work to innovate in our space with thoughtful genetics and farm practices. This includes our friends at Tejas Farms of Texas and East Fork Cultivars of Oregon.
WHY OUR LIVE CBD GUMMIES?
The main variable between Live Resin CBD Gummies is the quality of the active Live Resin CBD input used in them. This has a large effect on how effective the product will be. Some Live CBD Gummies use less than scrupulously tested CBD Distillate, we full panel test our oil and final products. These gummies are also potentiated with full-spectrum CBD extract, others use CBD distillate and we use CBD Live Resin. CBD Live Resin is regarded as one of the highest quality extracts in developed markets (next to solventless). Solventless is also highly regarded but is less ideal for formulation into edibles due to the extreme bitter taste.
CBD Live Resin is made by freezing the CBD hemp flower right as it’s harvested and then extracting the frozen material. Just like with frozen foods, freezing the hemp helps preserve delicate plant compounds that are lost during the traditional process where the plant is dried out completely before being extracted. On top of using frozen material for extraction, our CBD Live Resin our is made using only CBD hemp flower which means a higher concentration of cannabinoids as they are found in the flower material. Most of the CBD Distillate on the market is made by extracting CBD hemp biomass (mostly leaves and steams) and lacks the therapeutically beneficial compounds preserved in CBD Live Resin. Taste and feel the difference.
WHAT IS CBD LIVE RESIN?
CBD Live Resin is extracted from the most phytochemistry-dense part of the plant, the flower. We handpick the flower and remove all water leaves so only the flower remains. This gives our Live Resin a superior taste and aroma. Once harvested the flower is immediately frozen so the delicate photochemistry isn’t lost. The final step is the extraction of the frozen material, producing the Live Resin, and purging all residual solvents used in the extraction process. Nearly all CBD products on the market are made with CBD Distillate which uses the entire plant for extraction and extracts off of dried material which causes a loss of phytochemistry, taste, and aroma.
OUR CBD LIVE RESIN:
- Hand-harvested to protect the plants delicate compounds
- Extracted from flower only to get a more flavorful and aromatic extract
- Uses freshly frozen flower material not dried/cured in order to preserve compounds
- Strain-specific and potentiated with minor cannabinoids to create targeted products with each cultivar
- Curated cultivar from top breeders to bring unique profiles and effects
- Almost always machine-harvested, destroying delicate compounds
- Extracted from all plant matter
- Uses dried out plant material causing a loss to the plant’s compounds
- Mixed cultivars so you can’t target effects with the distillate
- Typically extracted from legacy cultivars produced for their endurance in different growing environments
With many cart options on the market, how do you decide which Live Resin CBD Gummies are the best? Important considerations outside of price are the quality and safety of the distillate, terpenes, and hardware.
It’s imperative that you see full panel testing on all product inputs. A full panel test means the final oil was tested for residual solvents that could have been left behind from the extraction process and also tests for pesticides or mycotoxins that could have been present in the source material.
Our CBD Live Resin and CBD Distillate are full-panel tested for any residual solvents to ensure product safety. A full-panel test showing “pass” does not necessarily mean the product is safe. It’s important any potentially harmful residuals are tested for and not every lab tests for all of the compounds that could be present. It is the company’s job to request the test encompasses all compounds used, as we do.
Our cartridge hardware contains a ceramic coil with numerous intake holes to ensure proper flow during use. We do not use cartridges that could leak harmful metal or glues into the product.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REGULAR CBD DISTILLATE & CBD LIVE RESIN?
Regular CBD distillate (and Delta 8 distillate) are very different from CBD Live Resin. CBD distillate is the standard extract used in most products on the market. It contains varying amounts of plant compounds depending on the material it was extracted from but CBD Live Resin will always contain more plant compounds because of how it is extracted. CBD distillate is typically made from CBD biomass that is dried before extraction which causes a loss of many of the plants’ compounds that are damaged by heat exposure. CBD Live Resin is extracted from CBD flower that is never dried and is instead frozen until extraction to protect the plants’ compounds. CBD Live Resin is considered a higher quality extract and is preferred by premium product makers and those who wish to have the most effective products.
HOW MUCH CBD IS IN LIVE RESIN?
The amount of CBD contained within CBD Live Resin will vary depending on the extract and how cannabinoid and terpene-rich the CBD flower used for extraction was. Our CBD Live Resin extracts typically contain a concentration between 50-70% CBD. CBD levels are not the same in all CBD flower cultivars which affect the final concentration of the compound when extracted for CBD Live Resin.

DOES CBD HAVE RESIN?
CBD doesn’t contain resin, CBD is Resin. CBD Live Resin in specific is an oleoresin. The word “resin” is referring to the resin glands which are prominent in hemp and cannabis plants. On the hemp plant, the resin glands contain high levels of CBD whereas a cannabis plant contains high levels of THC. The word “live” is referring to the extraction method where the plant is delicately handled and flash-frozen; since the plant is still “living” during extraction, the concentrate is considered a Live extract. We extract our CBD Live Resin from hemp flower cultivars that are richest in CBD.
WILL CBD LIVE RESIN GET YOU MORE HIGH?
The first important question is, “more high than what?”. In comparison to a CBD-only product made with standard CBD distillate, the answer is no but that’s because CBD distillate does give you a mind-altering “high” in general. That being said, if you feel effects from consuming CBD distillate-based products then you would feel stronger effects consuming CBD Live Resin since it contains more of the plants’ compounds.
If we are comparing Delta 8 distillate products that do or don’t have CBD Live Resin then the answer is also no. This is because CBD interacts with the same receptors that Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC do and can impede the uptake of the other compounds. For this same reason, it will give you a longer-lasting effect. Here is the biggest consideration and best question to ask, “What is your ultimate goal? The highest high or the best high?”. For a balanced, cannabis-like high we recommend products with Live Resin. Delta 8-only products are not natural and are one-dimensional, with Live Resin, you experience a better high that is multi-dimensional.
DO LIVE RESIN CARTS HAVE CBD?
Yes. Live Resin, even in cannabis, contains CBD since it’s present in cannabis and hemp plants which is where the Live Resin is extracted from. That being said, not all Live Resin carts contain Live Resin. Many actually contain Live Terpenes which you can read more about below.
WHAT DOES “LIVE” MEAN ON DELTA 8 & CBD PRODUCTS?
“Live” refers to the extraction method where the plant is delicately handled and flash-frozen; since the plant is still “living” during extraction, the concentrate is considered a Live extract. Since Live Resin is new to the hemp industry, “Live” can be misused as a marketing term that confuses consumers into thinking the product contains Live Resin. Many of the products that have “Live” listed on the product label contain “Live Terpenes”. “Live Terpenes” is just another name for hemp terpenes and are not “special terpenes”. They are steam distilled which is standard and not a new method. Make sure the product you are buying contains Live Resin and not just Live Terpenes, you can do so by checking the concentrate for multiple cannabinoids. The difference is significant.
WHAT DOES CBD RESIN DO?
CBD Live Resin, in general, does the same things as CBD distillate but it is more effective as it contains a more concentrated spectrum of CBD plant compounds due to the extraction method. When concentrates contain more cannabinoids and plant compounds, more of your endocannabinoid system is activated bringing more holistic benefits than standard distillates. Live Resin also potentiates other cannabinoids due to the entourage effect, meaning the high will be more full-bodied and last longer compared to standard distillates.
WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT LIVE RESIN?
CBD Live Resin is special because it is extracted in a way that preserves more of the plants’ compounds which translates to higher yields during extraction (higher potency). We can look at food, for example, when food is frozen after being harvested it locks in more of the nutrition that can be lost as the plant ages after harvest. This is the same with CBD Live Resin. CBD Live Resin is made from hemp cannabis plants that are frozen right as they are harvested to lock in the beneficial compounds. Most products are made from distillate which is extracted from dried-out biomass. This makes products made with CBD Live Resin (like ours) much higher quality. If you were to have two bundles of spinach and you place one bundle in the freezer and one bundle on the counter, after a couple of days which one are you going to grab to make juice?
HOW DO YOU TAKE CBD RESIN?
CBD Live Resin can be taken in a variety of ways. When it is first extracted it is in distillate form; from there it can be dabbed as is, put into softgels or capsules, homogenized with MCT oil to make tinctures, and formulated into vape cartridges, disposables, dabs, gummies, and other products including those found on this site. In its raw form, it is sticky and thick so it has to be heated to be handled.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIVE RESIN AND ROSIN?
CBD Live Resin is more refined than rosin and also is extracted differently. Rosin is produced using solventless methods whereas CBD Live Resin is extracted using BHO. Rosin is rawer than CBD Live Resin and contains undesirable compounds that negatively impact taste and aroma in comparison to CBD Live Resin which maintains much of the plant chemistry but is refined just enough to bring out the desirable flavor and aroma compounds. They are both considered high-quality extracts.
