In the world of cannabis extracts, it can feel like it’s hard to differentiate amongst all the competition. When it comes down to it, it takes more than a dedication to high-quality, efficacious products for a brand to stand out. It takes innovation, collaborative partnerships, and a passion for the cannabis plant. BLOOM Brands is precisely that.
At every turn, they are striving to uplevel the cannabis extracts game by providing only the absolute best vape and dab-able products. All while supporting top-tier producers and leveraging cannabis tech and science to continually improve and strengthen their brand presence.
Who Is The BLOOM Brands?
Founded in 2014, BLOOM is a team of “passionate cannabis users and borderline weed snobs”. Their humble beginnings started in Los Angeles, CA, with a crew of cannabis aficionados swimming in the mecca of extraordinarily potent and desirable buds.
California cultivators are the original pot farmers, and BLOOM aimed to capitalize on the highly evolved flower produced in their home state. The BLOOM team is composed of industry experts that have worked in just about every sector of cannabis production, from growing and budtending to sales and extraction technology.
In fact, their love of the cannabis plant led them to create a line of high-end vape pens, focusing on live resin to maintain the plant’s true aroma and flavor profiles. You can find their products throughout California, Washington, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Arizona, and soon-to-be Missouri and Canada.
What Is Live Resin?
Live resin is a cannabis extract made with the whole, live flower of the cannabis plant. At the peak of harvest, the plants are harvested and flash-frozen to preserve the valuable trichomes. The trichomes are the plant’s essence — it’s where the terpenes and cannabinoids are born and live.
In addition, the frozen flowers are then extracted, maintaining the plant’s original terpene profile and resulting in a flavor that tastes like a fresh flower. BLOOM does things a little differently than the other guys. Rather than freeze the plant, BLOOM extracts the plant within 24 after harvest.
Nonetheless, the creation of live resin is an artform of extraction and is considered one of the best ways to experience a dab or vape product. Live resin is a thick, saucy extract and can somewhat resemble the crystals, with an almost diamond-like sheen.
So, the plant’s terpene profile remains intact when using fresh flowers, providing a rich flavor and complex aromatic extract. It’s bursting with terpenes, tasting citrus, flowers, pine, or diesel to name a few.
Why Is Live Resin Becoming So Popular?
Cannabis fans love live resin because of the intense flavor. It doesn’t get much better than live resin sauce. In addition, since much of the original terpene and cannabinoid profiles are preserved, the entourage effect tends to feel stronger, resulting in a fuller high.
Further, it used to be that live resin could only be smoked using a dab rig setup. Now, with advancements in extraction and packaging machinery, live resin is also available in cartridges for vape pens.
The BLOOM Brands: Product Lines
With years of experience, the BLOOM team has curated a spectacular lineup of cannabis products for a wide audience to enjoy. Each product comes in multiple strains so you can find exactly what you’re looking for and have a consistent high, every time. Let’s take a look at their offerings.
BLOOM uses a unique fingerprinting technique that breaks down cannabis strains at a molecular level. Then, by performing a chemical analysis, they ‘fingerprint’ the strains and recreate the strain profiles to introduce a terpene profile that is as close to the original strain as possible. This is part of their proprietary process that makes the viscosity of live resin manageable in a vape pen.
BLOOM Vape is the original BLOOM product, providing an elegant and terpene-rich vape pen with 40-80 terpenes per strain. The BLOOM vape is made with hardware designed to protect terps, with larger champers and double entry points for quicker effects.
BLOOM One is an easy way to enjoy live resin. Each disposable pen is preloaded with 350mg of oil, delivering roughly 100 puffs per pen. The battery is fully charged and ready to go. No fuss, stress, or mess, just puff, and pass. BLOOM One uses the same reliable heating elements as the BLOOM Vape, so you never have to worry about burnt extract.
Next, BLOOM Dart is made for serious cannabis enthusiasts. Its hardware is made to absorb more oil so you can take in more cannabis content with every puff.
Not to mention, the sleek design houses a closed-loop system that fits perfectly in your palm or pocket, making the Dart easy for discreet travel. The battery lasts 35% longer than other 510 threaded batteries, so you can plug and play for even longer.
Bloom Drop is a multi-use oil that you can eat, dab, or infuse into edibles and beverages. Conveniently packaged in a glass syringe, it’s easy to see just how much you are dosing out of the 800mg per package. BLOOM Drop is made with the same oil as BLOOM Vape, but with more versatility, so you can take in a flavorful drop anyway you want.
Now, BLOOM Live is the most flavorful live resin vape you will ever experience. These terpenes are literally bursting with juiciness, as they are extracted in less than 24 hours after harvest.
Moreover, this is a rare live resin experience that will tickle your taste buds long after each puff. Made with solventless extraction, the BLOOM process preserves up to 95% of the original terpene profile.
Live Vape is available in half-gram and full gram cartridges in a variety of strains. The heating element is designed to vape at lower temperatures, so you don’t burn the oil. This maximizes the flavor profile while extending the life of each cartridge. Every inhale tastes just like a freshly cut cannabis plant.
Live Budder is the newest to the BLOOM lineup and it does not disappoint. BLOOM takes their fresh extraction to the next level, processing the cannabis two hours after harvest.
Thus, the result is a creamy concentrate, with juicy diamonds that are easy to grab with a dab tool. The consistency is easily manageable — not too wet and not too sticky. Best enjoyed at temps between 300-360 degrees Fahrenheit.
Treat is a nod to BLOOM’s cultivation partners. Their only flower offering, Treat is a lineup of one gram joints, each with over 20% THC. Treat is available in limited quantities, and always rolled with fresh buds over shake and trim — exceptional quality and flavor for a pre-rolled joint.
Nevertheless, no matter what you choose from BLOOM, you cannot go wrong. Gold in, gold out is one of their mottos, and BLOOM products stand out in a sea of competition for their top-shelf extracts and pre-rolls time and time again.
