The medical benefits of CBD have made it popular all around the world. CBD’s therapeutic properties can be beneficial in the treatment of health disorders like anxiety, depression, pain, acne, seizures, insomnia, migraine, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.
There are several forms of CBD available in the market. Each form differs in the CBD concentration. CBD resin is one such form of CBD and we will discuss more about it in this article.
What Is CBD Resin?
CBD resin or CBD live resin is a paste that is made from the industrial hemp plant. It contains all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids present in the hemp plant. CBD resin is made by extracting the hemp plant leaves. The extraction process is very expensive and difficult to perform at home.
Purification and decarboxylation process follow the extraction and this allows the extract to be free of any solvents or alcohol. There are around 2000 different compounds of hemp present in the extract. CBD will be present in the highest quantities along with other phytocannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, amino acids, and other essential compounds.
Best Ways To Use CBD Resin
Dabbing has become one of the popular ways of using any type of CBD concentrate, including CBD resin. Even many users have reported that dabbing is more enjoyable with CBD resin. There are different types of dabbing tools available in the market, but they all operate similarly. All you have to do is heat the nail and apply the CBD concentrate with a dabber and inhale it.
The nail is mainly of two types; glass and electric. The most common one is the glass nail and it is heated with an external source, such as a butane torch. You can heat the electric nail by plugging into the wall socket. Electric nails offer better safety and temperature control.
It is a type of dab tool that offers similar effects as a high-end dab rig. Looks like a screwdriver and most of the body of the tool will be covered with a silicone handle and only the metal tip is exposed. Just like a dab rig, you operate a nectar collector by heating the metal tip with a heat source.
Apply the CBD resin to the heated metal tip and inhale the vapors. Most users place the concentrate on a silicone mate because it is heat resistant. The main advantage of nectar collectors is that they are easier to carry around than dab rigs. In addition, it is as effective as dabbing the traditional way.
