Cannabis products are the drugs that are most trafficked around the world. Cannabinolic acid (THCA), both when smoking and under certain analytical conditions. THCA diamonds are one of the most powerful cannabis products available. Although they are not psychotropic by nature, all it takes is a little heat to transmute these miniature crystals into THC, the component of cannabis responsible for the high.
THCA diamonds are relatively new to the world of cannabis. They are found on a par with other high-potency extracts, but they exist in a legal gray area due to their chemical structure. Next, we'll teach you everything you need to know about THCA diamonds. Learn about the THCA itself, how to create your own diamond supply and the current legal situation.
However, THC is far from the only cannabinoid or compound in cannabis that can be found in marijuana. Many people are also familiar with cannabidiol or CBD, the cousin of THC, but few know about THCA. For example, I recently consulted a certificate of analysis (COA) of THCA flower that showed 25% THCA and 0.18% D9. THCA diamonds are crystalline structures composed of pure THCA that result from a couple of different extraction methods, such as “diamond extraction” (more on this later) and the isolation of refined petroleum. I have personally visited an authorized hemp crop that produces high-quality flowers with high THCA content, that pass USDA pre-harvest tests and have high THCA levels (but remain within the 0.3% D9 limit) after harvest.
While THCa doesn't have an intoxicating effect when ingested, the reason marijuana smokers accept this total THC profile is that THCA converts to D9 when heated in a chemical process called decarboxylation.
