Diamonds with THC, more precisely diamonds with THCA, are a rare and expensive treat that has only begun to make a splash in the cannabis concentrate market in recent years. Of course, people with additional sensitivity to THC should approach diamonds and any other concentrate with caution. Live diamonds are the most potent type of cannabis extract on the market and are also created using only freshly frozen cannabis. Any cannabinoid can be turned into a diamond, but THCA (THC acid) and CBD are the ones you'll find most often.
Cannabis diamonds may not be ancient carbon crystals that formed hundreds of kilometers deep in the Earth's upper mantle under scorching temperatures and crushing pressures, but their natural beauty is similar. When rubbing, it's common to add a little terpene sauce to diamonds, since they usually contain almost 100% THCA. Next, we'll list some of the most popular methods and see if there's anything special to consider when using diamonds and sauce. CBD and THCA diamonds have a remarkable crystalline structure in various shades, ranging from crystalline to sun-kissed yellow.
As mentioned above, terpene sauce is usually re-added to THCA crystals before being sold or packaged in its own standalone product, allowing the user to choose the amount of sauce to use on their diamond. In the case of cannabis diamonds, since they are also pure THCA, you'll want to make sure they have a little terpene sauce on top; if you bought the sauce separately from the diamond, you only have to use a touch tool (tweezers are recommended here) to pick up the diamond and immerse it in the terpenes. So the trick to making your own cannabis diamonds at home is simply to start with a live resin or hashish oil product and let it sit at room temperature for as long as it takes before you see crystals (often referred to as “sugar”) form in the solution. When comparing diamonds to other forms of cannabis, the potency of diamonds will range between 50 and 90%.
However, while crystals are pure cannabinoid isolates, the sauce strives to include multiple cannabinoids and terps that cooperate with each other to offer large amounts of therapeutic benefits, according to several research studies. It's also important to remember that these are living diamonds and sauce, which has a more notable symbiotic relationship between cannabinoids and terpenes.
