What Is THCA Crystalline?

Before you get THC, there’s THCA.
What Is THCA Crystalline?

“Diamonds” or THCA crystals have been trending with cannabis concentrate users over the last couple of years. Until recently, isolated THCA has been hard to find. Now, you can find them isolated or more commonly drenched with terpenes in jars labeled “sauce.” We’ll go over everything you need to know about THCA crystalline.

What Is THCA?

What Is THCA Crystalline?

THCA stands for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. Raw and live cannabis have the largest concentrations of it. THCA slowly converts to THC as a plant dries. Heating cannabis speeds the process up.

THCA is a nonpsychoactive precursor to THC, which means it won’t get you high. This is the reason cannabis must be decarboxylated in an oven before being used in edibles. The process ensures all the THCA has been converted into THC so you can experience the full psychoactive effects.

THCA crystalline is the result of isolating the THCA content from a cannabis plant. Breaking it down into a powder makes it easier to fill pills with.

Eating THCA

Raw cannabis is a known superfood. Juicing cannabis can provide higher levels of THCA. Eating high levels of THCA can help to balance out an endocannabinoid deficiency without the high. Endocannabinoid deficiencies are responsible for several debilitating medical conditions.

Certain people that are sensitive to THC cannot consume enough of the cannabinoid to relieve their symptoms. Fortunately, they can still find equal or greater relief from eating raw cannabis.

Dr. William Courtney, an M.D. from Willits, California has been pushing the benefits of juicing weed for almost a decade now. Fresh plants are highest in THCA. So unless you know how to grow weed or someone that does, you’re better off finding THCA crystalline.

Fortunately, more and more dispensaries are carrying the already extracted cannabinoid acid so you can just swallow it in a pill form instead.

Experts like Courtney believe THCA CBDA have stronger anti-inflammatory effects than THC or CBD. Other benefits include relieving symptoms of migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, epilepsy and more. However, research on these benefits has been limited. One study illustrated the cannabinoid acids ability to reduce nausea and vomiting in rats.

Dabbing THCA Crystalline

If you’re a fan of cannabis’ psychoactive effects, you’re better off dabbing your isolated THCA. Unlike most other extracts, alone, THCA takes on the form of crystals and there is slim to no terpene content. That’s why high terpene extracts are reintroduced to the crystals to make “sauce.

Terpenes help cannabinoids penetrate the blood-brain barrier and they can also influence how much THC is allowed to pass the barrier. They also provide the flavor and aroma of cannabis.

Final Hit: THCA Crystalline

THCA crystalline has been rapidly growing in popularity since Guild Extracts introduced us to it a few years back. Isolated THCA offers two totally different ways to enjoy the benefits of the cannabis plant. If the psychoactive effects of THC put you into a panic, you’re better off eating THCA powder. For those seeking new highs, dabbing THCA will get you exactly where you want to be.

  1. What happens when you haven’t smoked thc a crystalline for a few days? I know it’s a type of marijuana
    , but do you have any type of withdrawal symptoms???

  2. What color is this THCA Chrysaline? My friend gave me something that looks like a rock form it’s not crack but it is a yellow tint and it’s hard like a rock, what is that? It does create a kind of speedy effect but the taste is awful!

  3. Beware of this shit. Even when purchased from a licensed dispensary. There is no reason to be smoking 99.9%. Just not neccessary, it can have terrible side effects. Tinnitus out of the blue for starters, have fun with that for a couple weeks until your brain resets itself. Be careful people.
