Concentrates Explained: Jelly vs Jam

Dabbing aficionados have quite a selection to explore lately, but for some, Live resin Jelly and live rosin Jam are the go-to concentrate choices. But why exactly?

This article dives into the unique characteristics that set Jelly and Jam apart and celebrates the differences between these potent products.

Concentrates come in a huge variety of colors and textures.

What is a Concentrate?

Concentrates are potent products made by extracting cannabinoids and terpenes from plant material. Dab enthusiasts seek them out for their concentrated potency, aroma, and flavor. They are available in a huge variety of consistencies, each determined by its specific extraction and processing methods. While there are several types of concentrates—such as Budder, Badder, Wax, Shatter, and Oil – Jelly and Jam have unique textures and robust flavors that dabbers love.

What’s the difference between live resin vs live rosin?

The Texture of Concentrates

Concentrates can vary from solid forms like shatter to softer, spreadable textures akin to cake batter. The different textures and types influence visual appeal and the ease of handling.

Live resin Jelly concentrates boast a clear, often translucent appearance with a gel-like consistency, while live rosin Jam is typically more opaque, with visible terpenes and a consistency that resembles its namesake.

How is Live Resin Jelly Made?

Enthusiasts often prefer Jelly for its stable yet pliable texture, offering a clean and clear option for those who prefer a smooth product that’s easy to handle. Though it is sometimes made without solvent (Live Rosin Jelly), the process of creating live resin Jelly starts with a hydrocarbon extraction.

After extraction comes the meticulous purging of solvents followed by low temperature heating to achieve its signature translucence and gooey consistency. Dabbers choose Jelly for its purity and ability to preserve a robust terpene profile, leading to a flavorful and aromatic experience.

How is Live Rosin Jam Made?

Jam concentrates take on a slightly thicker form. Production is like Jelly, but with a post-extraction processing that results in a more “buttery” texture. The whipping and heating techniques used in creating Jam often yield a product that’s easy to dose and very fragrant, making it a favorite among those who dab for both flavor and effect.

Comparing Live Resin Jelly and Live Rosin Jam

While live resin Jelly and live rosin Jam may seem similar at first glance, connoisseurs will notice differences in ease of use and flavor profile. Jelly’s gel-like texture can be more challenging to work with, particularly for beginners, whereas Jam’s spreadable texture is often more forgiving and easier to handle when dabbing.

Both share high terpene contents, giving them their intense flavors and aromas. Usually, the preference for one over the other is based on personal taste and style.

How to Store Your Jelly or Jam

Proper storage is key to maintaining the integrity of Jelly and Jam concentrates. Always keep them in airtight containers, away from direct sunlight.

We recommend storing them within a temperature range of 45-65F (7-18C). This careful storage helps preserve the delicate terpene profiles and prevents the concentrate from drying out or changing in texture.

General Cannabis FAQ

Cannabis, often referred to as marijuana, is a plant that has been used for thousands of years for various purposes, including medicine, textiles, and recreation. The plant contains compounds known as cannabinoids, with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) being the most well-known. THC is primarily responsible for the plant’s psychoactive effects, while CBD is recognized for its potential therapeutic benefits without causing a “high.”

Many countries and U.S. states have decriminalized or legalized the use of marijuana for medical use, recreational, or both. The legal status changes frequently as legislation evolves.

The effects of cannabis vary widely depending on the strain, dosage, method of consumption, an individual’s endocannabinoid system, and more.

Some commonly reported effects include:

Psychoactive Effects: Euphoria, mood elevation, cerebral stimulation, stress relief, calming effects, and relaxation.

Physical Effects: Pain relief, body buzz, anti-inflammation, anti-nausea, energy boost or sedation, and appetite stimulation

*Medical Benefits: Cannabis is believed to have a range of therapeutic effects and alleviation of symptoms related to conditions like epilepsy, PTSD, and more.

*Marijuana is not approved by the FDA to treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

The primary difference lies in their intended use:

Medical Cannabis: Used as a treatment and alleviation of symptoms for specific health conditions. Medical strains might be cultivated and processed to have higher CBD content or other therapeutic compounds. Medical cannabis requires a physician who usually prescribes or recommends it as a treatment option.

Recreational Cannabis: Used without a medical justification but for personal enjoyment and fulfillment.

The process varies from state to state but typically involves the following steps:

Doctor’s Recommendation: Schedule an appointment with a physician who is authorized to recommend medical marijuana. Discuss your health conditions and reasons for seeking cannabis as a treatment.

Application: Once you have a doctor’s recommendation, you’ll usually need to apply for a medical marijuana card through a designated state or country agency.

Proof & Identification: Provide necessary identification and proof of residency as required by your jurisdiction.

Fee Payment: Most jurisdictions require a fee for the application and issuance of a medical marijuana card.

Card Issuance: Once approved, you will receive your medical marijuana card, allowing you to purchase cannabis at designated medical dispensaries.
