These diamonds are usually coated in residual sauce. Diamonds can also refer to pure crystalline THCA that have been isolated from refined oil.
Whether presented as a saucy, high-terpene extract or packaged as isolated THCA, diamonds are always 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.
