What are live resin cartridges?

Live resin cartridges (or carts) are simply the stainless steels, glass, or quartz holding containers or tubes you can purchase your live resin in. 


Carts don’t just hold or store your resin, though. These attractive canisters can also be used to vape from. 

What’s unique about a live resin cartridge?

Using live resin cartridges, you will find significantly more terpene content as opposed to other vape products. You will not only enjoy the aroma, but the higher terpene levels mean you may also experience a higher psychoactive experience. 


So compared to other vaping products, live resin carts are going to be far more intense overall.

How are live resin cartridges made?

After the live resin has been produced, experts will heat the concentrate to turn it into a liquid. Then, a syringe is used to separate the live resin liquid from any remaining crystals and used to fill an empty cart.

Are there negative effects from using live resin cartridges?

Like any medical marijuana product, live resin does have its downfalls that you should be aware of prior to use. These can include negative side effects like:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headaches
  • Sore throat


The experience of vaping with a live resin cart is unlike that of any other medical marijuana products, so give it a try and see if it’s a good fit for you!
