How do you make live resin?
Our live resin is made by utilizing a closed-loop extractor and a blend of hydrocarbon solvents. The blend is generally a mix of propane and butane, that will be modified based on the starting strain. When creating our hydrocarbon blends we aim to preserve the more delicate terpenes. All of our live resin is, by definition, made from flower that have been flash frozen immediately after harvest, preserving trichome-containing terpenes. This allows us to maximize the terpene profiles, and overall content of our concentrates.
First, the starting material is finely ground and then filled into the extractor. We then pass the hydrocarbon blend through our starting materials. The cannabinoids, terpenes and some other secondary metabolites are extracted from the flowers and become suspended in the solvent. The solvents are then purged with the use of a vacuum oven to ensure we are well below the residual solvent guidelines. This process leaves behind a delicious terpene rich concentrate.
Are darker colours of live resin bad?
No, changing colour or having a darker hue is not inherently bad. While darker colors may signify the presence of other secondary metabolites, they can also be the result of not efficiently vaporizing your oil. It is important to make sure your battery is charged and compatible with the cannabis cartridge used.
How should I store my live resin?
Live resin and most other cannabis concentrates are sensitive to UV light and heat. It is best to store your concentrates in a cool, dark and dry environment. Fridges will work for long term storage.
Do you use CRC?
While many cannabis concentrate producers use color remediation columns, we currently do not. We try our best to offer connoisseurs the quality they crave, at the price they deserve.
Do Phyto products contain phytol?
Phyto does not use the terpene phytol as a filler, or dilution agent, in any of their vaporizer cartridges. All ingredients are third-party tested for each formulation to ensure the absence of this naturally-occurring terpene, found in cannabis and other botanicals. The brand Phyto Extractions gets its name from the combining term Phyto, which means 'of a plant' relating to plants. Phytocannabinoids, the naturally-occurring cannabinoids found in plants, is an example of the combining term in use.
