A live rosin doesn’t necessarily contains a higher concentration of cannabinoids or terpenes than an extract made using a cured flower. … Products that are labeled as live resins can often differ in viscosity, ranging anywhere between saps to sugars, jellies, butters, and even more solid shatters.
Rosin is basically solventless shatter. It’s made by pressing cannabis flower, kief, or trim between two very hot surfaces with a lot of pressure, basically squeezing resinous sap from the bud. The result is an extract with a sappy texture and translucent color. If rosin is made correctly, it will retain most of the flavor, aroma, and terpenes of the original bud, making it superior to solvent extracts which run the risk of containing butane, propane, or alcohol.
Crumble wax is made with a procedure very similar to those that create shatter and budder, but the pre-purged oils used for crumble generally have more moisture, a different temperature and a thicker consistency, which help create the wax’s crumbling, cheese-like body after the purging process.
