How to consume live rosin jam and live rosin badder

Truthfully, you would mainly consume live rosin jam and live rosin badder by dabbing.

Dabbing uses a dab rig and a torch (or electronic heating mechanism like an e-nail) to raise the temperature of a banger/nail to a point that will melt/vaporize your cannabis concentrates.

You inhale that vapor and get a smokeless blast of flavorful terpenes and potent effects.

There are also dab pens, which are essentially handheld electronic dab vaporizers. You put whatever concentrate you want inside of them, heat them, and bam, you’re now vaping delicious live rosin jam and/or badder.

Dab pens are a great device due to their portability, ease of use, and discreet manner of consumption.

The different consistencies of certain extracts make them more applicable to certain consumption methods.

For dabbing, you can use any consistency, but something with all the compounds held together will produce an optimal experience. Live rosin badder is a great example.

In addition to these obvious ways to consume live rosin badder and jam, another great way to consume is to infuse your joints with them.

Ways to infuse pre-rolls with live rosin jam and live rosin badder

Infused pre-rolls are basically joints with extracts added to the cannabis flower.

You can infuse a joint with literally any type of cannabis concentrate. Options include THC isolates, THC distillates, kief, live resin, and live rosin.

It is worth noting that not all concentrates are created equal, and some have higher quality than others.

Live rosin jam and live rosin badder are both high-quality concentrates, due to how they are made.

They are solventless , which means the original plant profile is left intact. They also have incredibly high terpene content, which means you’ll be getting the maximum flavor.

For infused pre-rolls, you would prefer to use live rosin badder over jam. Badder’s consistency, while still sticky and oily like extracts, is more manageable than jam. You can easily scoop badder from a jar and roll it around in your hand.

Pre-rolls infused with live rosin badder are very popular.

Live rosin badder is great for infusing cannabis pre-rolls.

This is why the majority of hash holes, a popular style of infused joints, are made with badder-textured extracts.

When you smoke them, the flower will then burn with a hole in the middle of the joint.

Distillates and isolates are only cannabinoids, so they'll boost potency. Live rosin is the best of both worlds.
