THCA diamonds are typically vaporized or “dabbed,” either in combination with flower, within a concentrate, or for those with very high tolerance, on their own. Before they’re exposed to heat, diamonds are composed of Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA). THCA is the precursor to THC, the cannabinoid primarily responsible for the intoxicating feelings associated with cannabis, among its other therapeutic benefits like pain relief or appetite stimulation.
When heated, the THCA content converts to THC. The high levels of THC makes THCA diamonds among the most potent cannabis concentrates on the market.
Why THCA diamonds?
THCA diamonds are known for their purity and are sought after by many consumers for their high potency. The crystalline structure of THCA diamonds contains 99% refined THCA. Even a small THCA diamond can contain more THCA than a gram of cannabis flower.
While it’s a fact that high levels of THC do not always equate to more potent intoxication, the purity of THCA diamonds remains unmatched. Because of the extremely high levels of THCA in THCA diamonds, there is little to no room for terpenes and the other compounds in cannabis. This means consumers can incorporate THCA diamonds strategically in a way that helps them meet their goals. For example, someone who consumes high-THC products to help with chronic pain may find heightened relief from a product that is pure THCA.
