In short, they are the newest extract gaining some serious traction within the cannabis community, as being the most potent concentrate on the market. This crystallized extract is comprised of more than 99% pure THC-A – which won’t get you high if it is ingested, but requires decarboxylation (combustion) to convert the THC-A to the psychoactive THC.
Superior THC Live Diamonds are formed from live resin – which aids in terpene retention – that allows for a more flavourful concentrate!
The live resin, while still in a viscous state, is sealed in a pressurized container and left at room temperature. As time passes within this mixture, THCA crystal begin to form and fall to the bottom of the jar. The residual terpenes found in the live resin rise to form a viscous layer on top. The result: a concentrate comprised of 97-99% THC, with the added flavour and medicinal benefit of strain specific terpenes.
What are Diamonds? Why are they so desirable
These things are a bit complex! Essentially, weed diamonds are crystals created by extracting the live resin from a cannabis plant using a cold-extraction method and then applying pressure to that oil by means of a chromatography machine until it takes its signature crystalline form.
This temperature part of the extraction is key, because unlike THC, THCA is what’s known as an inactive cannabinoid. THCA, which stands for “THC acid,” is basically just the same THC we know and love with a few extra atoms attached. Those extra acid atoms means THCA will not provide the psychoactive properties that consumers expect from ingesting THC — unless it is activated with heat. This process is known as decarboxylation.
As for the name “diamonds,” it’s pretty self-evident once one sees what crystalline THCA actually looks like. Rarely larger than a few millimeters across, these diamonds are 99 percent THCA, with the remaining 1 percent consisting of other terpenes and cannabinoids. Weed diamonds thus represent the purest form of the plant’s most famous cannabinoid available today.
The key to unlocking the THC from THCA is to smoke or vaporize these crystals. However, it’s important to remember that diamonds are essentially the Everclear of cannabis. The THCA potency of commercial flower is often around 25 percent, while concentrates regularly test anywhere between 70 and 90 percent. Diamonds, by contrast, are just a hair shy of 100 percent THC, which is why even experienced consumers often treat THCA crystals as a heady sesh supplement as opposed to an entree.
Consumption of diamonds often includes “capping” another, less potent concentrate such as wax or shatter by topping it off with some bits of THCA crystals. Remember: Diamonds have the potential to be four times stronger than hitting a joint.
We recommend cannabis concentrates and Diamonds weed first-time users start with a small amount. Allow 60-90 minutes for full effect before another dose is considered. Dose can be adjusted accordingly until the desired effects are achieved.
