Check out the concentrate entries that tested the highest for terpene content at the HIGH TIMES 2015 Michigan Medical Cannabis Cup.
Some of the best cannabis extracts around give thanks to their rich and diverse terpene profile (Read: What Makes an OG Strain an OG?). Live resins were popular among the winners this cup, and scored pretty high in terpene content.
Terpenes can affect the consistency of an extract; shatters, waxes, saps and live resins differ mainly by their terpenoid profiles due to their different extraction and processing methods. Making live resin involves using fresh, frozen cannabis that hasn’t lost any terpenes to evaporation. CO2 extracts (which aren’t present in this list) can have higher than normal terpene content from re-enrichment (Read: What is CO2 Oil?).
In this graph you can see the total terpenoid content of all the 2015 Michigan Medical Cannabis Cup entries.
