THCA Diamonds Are One of the Industry’s Emerging Concentrates
If you haven’t heard about THCA diamond, don’t feel out of the loop. For now, the relatively new cannabis concentrate seems about as rare as its geological counterpart. Diamond began showing up in the Arizona medical-marijuana market around mid-2017. Since then, it’s popularity has been slowly growing.
Diamonds are crystalline structures of pure THCA. THCA is non-intoxicating on its own, but converts into the intoxicating THC when exposed to heat through decarboxylation. When THCA diamonds are vaporized through a dab rig, e-rig, or vaporizer, THCA decarboxylates into the active THC, which in turn binds with receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system to produce an intoxicating effect.
