If you are a cannabis enthusiast or a medical marijuana patient, you might be familiar with Delta-9 THC (the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis that gets you high). However, have you heard of THC-P? In this blog post, we will explore everything you need to know about live resin THC-P, including: what it is, where you can find it, and why a trusted dispensary with full panel lab testing is the best source for THC-P live resin products.
What is Live Resin?
Live resin is a type of cannabis concentrate that is made using freshly harvested cannabis plants. Unlike other cannabis concentrates, live resin is produced using the entire plant, including the flowers, leaves, and stems. This means that it contains a wider range of cannabinoids and terpenes, which gives it a more complex and nuanced flavor profile compared to other concentrates. Live resin is typically produced using a process called cryogenic freezing, which involves freezing the cannabis plant at extremely low temperatures before extracting the resin.
One of the main benefits of live resin is its high concentration of terpenes. Full spectrum live terpenes are the aromatic compounds found in cannabis that give it its distinctive scent and flavor. They are also believed to have a range of therapeutic effects including anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, and pain-relieving properties. Since live resin is produced using freshly harvested plants, it contains a higher concentration of terpenes than other concentrates, which can enhance its therapeutic benefits.
Another advantage of live resin is its versatility. It can be consumed in a variety of ways, including dabbing, vaping, and adding it to edibles. This makes it a popular choice among cannabis enthusiasts who are looking for a more potent and flavorful experience. Additionally, because live resin is so potent, a little bit goes a long way — making it a cost-effective option for those who are looking to stretch their cannabis budget.
What is THC-P?
THC-P (also known as Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabiphorol) is a newly popular psychoactive compound found in cannabis. THC-P is similar in structure to Delta-9 THC (the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis and sometimes referred to as regular THC), but it is believed to be more potent and longer-lasting. Early research and user reports have stated that THC-P could be up to 30 times stronger in psychoactive effects than Delta-9 THC making it incredibly popular with long-time cannabis users.
This is a powerhouse of a cannabinoid and is incredibly potent so buyer beware — we do not recommend a newer user to try THC-P products because it may be far too strong for them.
Then What is THC-P Live Resin?
If you combine the live resin of a cannabis strain with a THC-P infused product, such as an edible or live resin vape cartridge (or disposable), you get THC-P with added live resin! All the benefits of the terpenes and flavonoids from live resin combined with the super potent effects of THC-P — all in one perfect end product.
It is very important to make sure that you are able to actually purchase that end product though, as THC-P is not available in every state even though it is a federally legal cannabinoid.
Where Can I Legally Buy It?
These products are still relatively new to the market and not many dispensaries carry them yet. However, Ethereal Gold Dispensary is one of the few sources where you can find high-quality THC-P live resin products. Ethereal Gold Dispensary is known for its commitment to quality and transparency, and all of their products are rigorously tested to ensure purity, potency, and safety. Remember that while this cannabinoid is federally legal by the 2018 Farm Bill (so long as it is from a hemp-derived source and is less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC by dry weight), this cannabinoid (much like Delta-8) has seen some pushback at the state level. Always be sure to double check that THC-P is legal in your state or check with an Ethereal Gold Dispensary Handler via our chat!

Is the Ghost THC-P live resin disposable legit?
The easy answer to this is no. The Live Resin Ghost Disposable has no available COA or lab testing online, and the company seems to be a ghost company. Ironic given the name.
What is THC-P good for?
Early studies into THC-P and user reports state that it is 15 to 30 times stronger than Delta-9 THC. Users report uplifted happiness and overall general good times. This has made THC-P a very popular and sought after product for many experienced cannabis users. It is always recommended to start with a smaller dose before going at it full force.
Is THC-P sativa or indica?
THC-P is not a strain of cannabis, but rather a specific cannabinoid that can be found in various strains. The classification of a strain as sativa or indica is based on its physical characteristics and growth patterns, rather than its chemical composition. Therefore, it is not accurate to classify THC-P as sativa or indica. Live resin instead will be classified as whatever strain the terpene flavors came from, which will make the terpenes from a hybrid strain, sativa strain, or indica strain.
Is THC-P synthetic?
THC-P can be found naturally in cannabis plants, but it is relatively rare and only present in trace amounts. You can synthesize THC-P in a lab to create a more concentrated form, but these products are not yet widely available with full panel lab tests. Always be certain your THC-P vape cartridges have full panel testing so you don't consume anything unsavory.
Is Live Resin Distillate?
No. Live resin and distillates are different. While they may both be cannabis concentrates, they undergo completely different processes to be created. The main difference between live resin and distillates is that live resins retain most of the plant's original cannabinoids and terpenes — distillates do not, and the terpenes must be reintroduced if desired by the manufacturer.
Can I still purchase Pura Vida vapes?
As far as we can tell, Pura Vida no longer exists as a company as their website no longer works. We cannot comment on their testing that (used to) exist, as we cannot find a place to access it.
