What are THCA diamonds?
Let’s break it down. THCA is THC acid, the precursor to THC, the most abundant and intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis. When exposed to heat, non-intoxicating THCA converts to intoxicating THC and produces that classic cannabis high. Diamonds are another term for the crystalline structures that form in sauce, a cannabis concentrate with high levels of terpenes and a runny texture. Put two and two together and you get a term for the THCA-rich crystals that form in sauce.
Sauce is made using a closed-loop system (explained in further detail below) that allows the resulting solution to settle under various pressures and temperatures. This environment promotes the natural separation of the major cannabinoids, including THCA in the form of diamonds (or THC diamonds as they’re sometimes erroneously called), from the terpene-rich, liquid portion.
The resulting sauce can contain a mixture of both terpene-rich liquid and THCA diamonds. Further processing can also separate the THCA diamonds and refine them into crystalline THCA, a powdery concentrate comprised almost purely of the cannabinoid acid.
