Diamonds are known as crystallized structures of pure THCA. These diamonds usually form at the bottom of a container of sauce. Diamonds can also be referred to as the leftover crystals after the terpene sauce has been removed out of the initial mixture of sauce. The difference in diamonds lies in the way in which they are extracted. Many users think that diamonds are pure THCA, but the fact is that they are pure THCA and THCA is what can be converted to THC.
Diamonds come in all shapes and sizes, and the bigger or better shape they are doesn’t mean it is of better quality. These things change because of what solvents are used, how much moisture is involved, what temperature it’s at, and if there are any chemical impurities. THCA can crystallize into many different shapes. How the diamond physically looks is more of a result of the overall process at each stage of crystallization.
Because diamonds are pure THCA, they are non-intoxicating. But because THCA converts into THC when it is exposed to heat, that is what creates the psychoactive effects. Diamonds are typically used through a vaporizer or dab rig. The THCA will decarboxylate into THC and the THC will bind to the receptors in the endocannabinoid system to create the high. The process of making and harvesting diamonds is referred to as diamond mining.
The crystals are separated from the concentrate and two products should be created afterward – crystalline diamonds and terp sauce. Diamond concentrates are known to boast a THC content up to nearly 99% which makes it the strongest thing in the current market.
Use of Term
Last night I tried out some highly potent diamonds in my dab rig. It was the highest I have ever felt in my life and I only recommend it for experienced users.
