THC-A crystalline is a relative newcomer to the world of cannabis concentrates that boasts incredible potency. Also known as THCA diamonds, concentrates of this variety sport up to 99.9% THC content, making them the strongest on the market.
However, amongst all the hype and acclaim surrounding these products, a pair of questions often go unanswered: what exactly are THC-A diamonds, and what is the origin? Like many others, if you have been asking yourself the same thing, then you’ve come to the right place, as I am about to give you the lowdown on the concentrate that yields the highest high.
THC-A diamonds are a substance with close to 100% THC content; there isn’t exactly room for much else within these gleaming little gems of concentrated dankness. As a result, things like terpenes are outright purged from the final product, leaving the tasteless concentrate behind. To accommodate this, crystalline THC can often be found sold with or mixed into terpene “sauce” extractions, thus pairing incredible potency with equally stunning terpene profiles. However, the absence of terpenes and CBD isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
The isolation of THC allows for an unprecedented degree of control over its applications, allowing those who extract it to create concentrate blends that have exact ratios of CBD, terpenes, and THC. In other words, extractors are given the ability to develop products that yield whatever effect they desire accurately.
Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in raw cannabis flower. In cannabis plants, THCA is an acidic precursor to the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compound. As the cannabis plant ages or undergoes various decarboxylation methods, THCA slowly converts into THC.
In its natural state, the cannabis plant goes through a vegetative and then flowering stage where it produces cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), the mother of many therapeutic cannabinoids. Enzymes called synthases convert CBGA into THCA and other cannabinoids such as CBDA or CBCA before being converted to their parent compounds.
THCA can be consumed in the form of the raw cannabis plant or be extracted and made into tinctures, transdermal patches, edibles, capsules, and isolates. Isolates come in a THCA crystalline powder that’s white, odorless, and flavorless. Unlike other broad-spectrum or full-spectrum products, THCA isolate does not contain any other terpenes or cannabinoids.
Apart from dabbing and vaporizing your THCA crystals in a dab rig or an electronic dab nail for precise heating temperatures, you can incorporate your THCA crystals into your smoking routine. Add some of your THCA powder on top of your packed flower bowl or inside your neatly wrapped joint. There’s no wrong way to consume THCA.
If you’re not interested in consuming through heating methods, you can also consume THCA orally, which won’t convert your product into THC. For instance, you can add your THCA crystals into a variety of foods and drinks such as juices and smoothies. Users can also introduce THCA into pills and capsules for daily use. This method allows you to consume pre-rationed doses for a consistent experience.
THCA can also be made into other oral products such as tinctures and droppers. Tinctures can be consumed orally or sublingually. Sublingual application has much quicker effects compared to oral ingestion. Users can apply THCA tinctures under the tongue and leave it there for up to 60 seconds. The THCA is absorbed directly into the bloodstream and the brain. THCA can be cooked into infused edibles, although the heat from cooking will convert the THCA to THC.
