Crystalline is known to be the purest form of marijuana concentrate. It is an extract that usually only has a single type of cannabinoid. This can be range from tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), or cannabidiol (CBD). To from crystalline, cannabis oil needs to be very refined. Even though crystalline is usually more potent than other concentrates, its purity will sometimes be without the flavor and therapeutic benefits.

Crystalline is sometimes referred to as diamonds or THC crystals. It appears to resemble white sugar that is used for baking cakes. Crystalline doesn’t contain any terpenes or cannabis plant material, and that is what makes a cannabis strain what it is. THC cannot be used to produce crystalline because it can’t hold its structure together. When people refer to crystalline as THC crystals, it’s not pure THC, but rather THCA. THCA is what converts to THC through the process of decarboxylation when it is consumed.

Crystalline is very potent when it is heated up. Because it doesn’t contain the terpenes that cannabis has, the human body might not feel the same high from it and other concentrates out there. There are various ways to use crystalline. You can ingest it through your mouth after sprinkling it on edibles or cakes, you can dissolve it in some oil to create a tincture, it can be smoked, and dabbed.

Crystalline is made by mixing a more refined marijuana concentrate with a solvent and then adding a certain amount of heat and pressure to evaporate that solvent, and this is what allows the crystals to form. Manufacturing it should only be attempted by people that are very familiar with the process as it can become fairly dangerous if you are a beginner and don’t know what you are doing.
