One of the many extract textures that can be produced, identified by its viscous, grainy, and wet quality. Sugar is typically used like any other extract and is usually desired for its high terpene profile. Many solvent-based extracts will sugar up over time if they are not winterized.
Live sugar is made from fresh frozen plant material in a two-part process that starts with sieving the fresh frozen plants in liquid nitrogen to create dry sift, then pressing the resulting sift at low temperatures. The high terpene concentrate is then placed under conditions that promote crystallization, which allows the cannabinoids to separate from the rest of the concentrate. Live sugar doesn’t include the use of solvents, but the end result is roughly the same as that of solvent-based sugar.
