Alternative cannabinoid blends are growing in popularity as more alternative cannabinoids are isolated and made available to the public. These blends allow consumers to create their own cannabinoid profiles in all types of products and enjoy intentional and refined effects.
Everyone responds to different cannabinoids in a unique way based on their own individual chemical makeup and biology. For many people THC is extremely enjoyable, but for others they find they are extremely sensitive and often THC produces undesirable effects for them. Research continues to expand each year into these variable effects of the numerous cannabinoids present in cannabis and hemp. But, wouldn’t it be great if you could create your very own products containing the cannabinoids that are just right for you? This is the lure of the alternative cannabinoids and custom cannabinoid blends.
Cannabis and hemp plants produce a wide variety of different cannabinoids and terpenes, and each strain contains a different concentration of these compounds. Environmental factors also play a role in the overall cannabinoid and terpene content of cannabis or hemp plant. Not only do these cannabinoids and terpenes have effects of their own, but these effects combine and work synergistically to create something referred to as the “Entourage Effect”. You’ll often see this mentioned when shopping for full spectrum CBD products.
Until recently, cannabis plants were typically bred specifically to produce high amounts of THC and hemp plants were bred to produce high amounts of CBD. However, this is beginning to change as interest in alternative cannabinoids is steadily increasing. Cannabinoids such as THCV, CBG, CBN, CBC, CBT, & CBDV which many consumers of cannabis weren’t familiar with a few years ago are now at the forefront of a booming alternative cannabinoid market.
Of course, a very large part of this new market consists of intoxicating alternative cannabinoids which have skyrocketed in popularity. Delta-8 THC, THCO, THCP, HHC, Delta-10 THC, Delta-11 THC… the list goes on! It seems as though a new cannabinoid is released every other week with the potential to mimic the effects of Delta-9 THC which is the infamous psychoactive cannabinoid associated with the cannabis high.
There is a major drawback however to all of these cannabinoids and that is the experience of consuming them. This is especially true for the intoxicating alternative cannabinoids. This is because essentially all of them are extracted using solvents or even created in a lab and they are very far removed from the cannabis plant themselves. The flavor of these extracts or isolates is generally much less enjoyable than a full spectrum CBD live resin for example which is extracted directly from fresh frozen hemp flower and has a robust and highly desirable flavor.
This is where something like a CBD live resin syringe can be extremely useful. Adding some extremely flavorful live resin to an otherwise flavorless alternative cannabinoid isolate or distillate can enhance the overall experience quite a bit. We hear the question being asked all the time now, “is there a delta-8 live resin”. No, and there never will be. But, you can infuse your delta 8 distillate with our tasty CBD live resin!
Forgetting the intoxicating cannabinoids for a moment, our CBD live resin syringes are also really great for those who want to create their own alternative cannabinoid blends. Many cannabis concentrate consumers and consumers of CBD concentrates may have noticed how products containing certain cannabinoids offer the specific effects they are looking for. In many cases however, concentrates available on the market today won’t contain those cannabinoids in any significant concentration. So, what is one to do?
These individuals can easily find alternative cannabinoid isolates and distillates online which can be mixed with our CBD live resin to create a live resin concentrate that contains high amounts of their desired cannabinoids.
Think of it as a ‘designer’ cannabis concentrate/hemp extract, and YOU are the designer!
