What's the point of like Live Resin

It's less potent then distillate and they all have a chemically taste. I much prefer the fruit and floral terps found in distillate. I'm mostly talking about carts and not just the concentrate because i could kind of see why someone would buy it like that .

Those fruit and floral "terps" are all added chemicals, not natural. And the big clouds....more added chemicals

Often combined with fake terps. You basically enjoy the additives cuz distillate has no taste or smell and it’s typically made with unsellable flower.
It really depends on the brand. You can't say that live resin is made from flash frozen flower but the same brands distillate is made from trim lol. Moxie , Heavy Hitters, Alpine, etc makes live resin and distillate from high quality flower.

What are fake terps? Just because some terps are taken from fruits and flowers and not cannabis derived doesn't mean they are fake

I used a nugsmasher to extract rosin from my flower and tested both at the lab. The flower tested at 21.64% THC and the rosin tested at 89.13%. I extracted exactly 1.00 g of rosin from 4.5 g of flower. That means the nugsmasher was 91.5% effective at extracting the THC. And the nugsmasher rosin also measured higher terps, maybe the heat, idk. Not bad I say...

Terps measured higher because the rosin is a concentrate. So in removing the oils from the plant you concentrated the contents of the oils in one place without plant matter to “contaminate” the test. This is the same reason the thc and other cannabinoids test higher as well,
