Fresh Frozen

In the ever-evolving world of cannabis cultivation, producers continually strive for methods that maximize product quality and effectiveness. Fresh frozen cannabis, a recent entrant in the industry's repertoire, presents a unique value proposition, which Growcycle is proud to offer to its discerning customers.

What is Fresh Frozen Cannabis?

'Fresh frozen' is a term coined by the cannabis industry to describe a specific method of cannabis preservation. It signifies a departure from the conventional drying and curing process of harvested cannabis buds. Instead, fresh frozen cannabis is frozen immediately after harvest, preserving the plant's intricate balance of terpenes and cannabinoids.

The fresh frozen process begins with the removal of the fan leaves, a necessary step to ensure the concentration of desirable compounds. Once the plant is adequately de-fanned, the stalk is cut and the buds are placed in moisture-resistant bags, typically turkey bags. These bags are then promptly stored in a freezer, arresting the degradation process and locking in the cannabinoids and terpenes until the product is ready for further processing or direct use.

Wholesale Fresh Frozen Cannabis at Growcycle

Growcycle, as a pioneering online platform in the cannabis industry, recognizes the immense potential of fresh frozen cannabis and is excited to offer this premium product to its clientele on a wholesale basis. This will provide an opportunity for cannabis brands to lay the groundwork for developing live resin and rosin. 

Opting for the fresh frozen method results in a product with enhanced flavor profiles and potency. This is primarily due to the preservation of the cannabis plant's delicate terpene profile, which can be damaged or lost entirely during traditional drying and curing methods. With fresh frozen cannabis, the terpenes remain intact, offering a richer, more vibrant sensory experience.

Moreover, the fresh frozen process also preserves cannabinoids in their acid form, maintaining a high level of THC-A, which can be converted to THC during the extraction process. This ensures a potent product that appeals to a segment of consumers seeking a more intense cannabis experience.

Laying the Groundwork for Live Resin and Rosin

Fresh frozen cannabis has become a pivotal player in the realm of cannabis extraction. Its high terpene and cannabinoid content make it an ideal starting material for creating potent and aromatic cannabis concentrates. Specifically, there are two extraction methods where fresh frozen cannabis shines: hydrocarbon extraction and solventless extraction.

Hydrocarbon Extraction

Hydrocarbon extraction, used to create live resin, involves using hydrocarbons like butane or propane as solvents to extract the desired compounds from the cannabis plant. The process involves passing the solvent over the fresh frozen cannabis material, where it binds with the plant's trichomes and carries them away. The resulting solution is then purged of the solvent, leaving behind a concentrated form of cannabis known as live resin.

Live resin stands out in the cannabis market due to its superior terpene profile, preserved by the fresh freezing and hydrocarbon extraction process. The result is a product with exceptional flavor and aroma, closely mirroring the original plant's characteristics. Therefore, fresh frozen cannabis from Growcycle serves as an excellent base for brands seeking to produce top-quality live resin.

Solventless Extraction

The other popular extraction method used with fresh frozen cannabis is solventless extraction, primarily used to create live rosin. This process is highly preferred by some cannabis enthusiasts due to its natural approach, involving no chemical solvents. Instead, it uses a combination of heat and pressure to extract the resin from the cannabis plant.

When fresh frozen cannabis is used as the starting material in solventless extraction, the resulting product – live rosin – is a flavorful, potent, and clean concentrate. It captures the full spectrum of the cannabis plant's terpenes and cannabinoids, making it a sought-after product in the cannabis market.
