We all have our own preferences when it comes to weed, and how we ingest it. Whether we want to smoke it, eat it, or vape it, we have more options now than ever before as to how to partake. There’s a lot to stay on top of as things are constantly changing. Here’s the latest on live resin, and where to get it in Illinois now:
Wait, what’s live resin?
You may already know what live resin is, but in case you don’t: It’s a form of concentrate, created by taking fresh cannabis and freezing it before and during extraction. So since the weed is treated this way, there’s no drying involved. As a result, the cannabis maintains its terpene profile, scent, and flavor. That also means that when you vape live resin, you’ll often get a more intense high.
And where do you get it?
Well, if you haven’t been following the news, there’s a few updates we have to share.
1. Cresco Labs – Liquid Live Resin
Cresco recently released a line of live resin products, that you can find in Illinois. Available in Rise (Sativa), Refresh (Hybrid), and Rest (Indica) strains, you can get it them .5 g and 1.0 g vape cartridges. Cresco claims its product is of a higher quality, as they do not add anything or take away anything from the resin, in the production process. Check it out for yourself, and make your own conclusions.
2. Curaleaf – Select Elite Live

The product is a combination of highly potent THC oil and live resin extract. Curaleaf claims to have a proprietary formula, that results in a high quality, high potency oil. As a result, your Sativas will feel more stimulating, and your Indicas will make you more sleepy. The potency is in the 70-85% THC range, available in 0.5g and 1g cartridges.
