Resin

Type: Terms

In nature, resin is a sticky flammable organic substance, insoluble in water, exuded by some trees and other plants (notably fir and pine).

Cannabis resin is the light to dark brown sticky substance found on the trichomes of a cannabis plant.

This sap-like plant byproduct is considered the most valuable part of the cannabis plant and delivers the majority of the psychoactive compound THC.

Products containing resin are called concentrates. There are several ways that resins can be harvested to produce concentrates, such as butane hash oil, live resin, and rosin.
