What are THCA Diamonds?

THCA diamonds are known as the cleanest, purest, and most potent option for THCA concentrates available today. THCA is a variant of THC that is known for its purity and potency, and in the form of diamonds, it creates a unique smoking experience for those who enjoy dabbing and vaporizing their cannabis.

In this guide, we’ll cover everything that you need to know about THCA and THCA diamonds, including what they are, whether they’re legal, and where you can buy them. And of course, you can head over to your local Verts Dispensary to find all kinds of concentrates, including diamonds, live resin, sugar, wax, and more.

What is THCA?

THCA is one of the cannabinoids that is naturally occurring, but not naturally psychoactive in its raw form. However, when it’s heated, the THCA will become THC, producing the same high as you get from THC products.

Essentially, heat works to activate the cannabinoids in these diamonds, but they haven’t been processed into THC so they are purer in their raw form. That leads to a cleaner, more profound high than you get with other concentrates, which is why many people are looking for them.

THCA diamonds

THCA diamonds are a concentrate form of cannabis that is aptly named. This concentrate appears to look like diamonds, being sold with a bunch of chunks in a small jar. It’s also nearly clear, while other concentrates are often yellowish in color, which again lends to the “diamond” name.

Are THCA diamonds legal?

Since THCA is not actually a psychoactive substance, it’s not banned as part of the federal law against marijuana use. Therefore, it’s absolutely legal for use in many places around the country (and the world). You might have heard of it in its non-acidic form: delta-9 THC. And that’s something that you can even find at many local smoke shops in states around the country. 


What are the effects of THCA?

THCA on its own won’t get you high, but it may have some therapeutic benefits to consider:

  • Pain relief
  • Nausea relief
  • Appetite stimulation
  • Reduction of anxiety
  • Reduced inflammation

Some people may experience issues with paranoia and anxiety, but that is rare and not common among people who are experienced with cannabis in any form.

If you do smoke it in the concentrate form, like diamonds, it will provide powerful effects and a long-lasting high. It should hit you almost immediately and deliver the relief that you seek.


What are the benefits of using THCA diamonds?

Using THCA diamonds gives you a pure, potent way to get high. The psychoactive properties that can be activated by smoking these diamonds are unlike anything that people have experienced. In fact, they’re recommended for experienced cannabis users, as newbies can experience issues with:

  • Paranoia or anxiety
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Sleepiness and fatigue

Basically, these diamonds are like a wallop of THC to your system at once, delivering purity and potency that most people have never seen. So, if you’re new to them, proceed with caution and always remember to start small.

That said, there are plenty of benefits that come with THCA diamonds:

  • Purity
  • Potency
  • Use less
  • Federally legal
  • Ease of use

Make sure that you check the brand of the THCA products you purchase, just like you would with any other cannabis or CBD product. That way, you can maximize the benefits by choosing the best products on the market.

What’s the difference between THC and THCA?

As discussed earlier, THC is what results from the decarboxylation process of burning the THCA (and other cannabinoids) to activate them. So, THCA starts as a raw cannabinoid and on its own, it doesn’t do much. However, when you heat it by smoking or vaping it, it will allow you to get the same physical and mental effects that you would expect from standard THC products.

The caveat, of course, is that because THCA is so pure and powerful on its own, the high that it creates is often stronger than other cannabinoids and cannabis products. Everyone will have a different experience, but usually, smoking THCA will result in a stronger, longer-lasting buzz.

What type of high is THCA?

Since THCA is non-psychoactive, it doesn’t deliver a high on its own. THCA won’t bind to CB1 receptors, which is what helps create the high that you get from THC. Therefore, you may see some pain relief or help with appetite, for example, but you won’t get that body or mind buzz that comes from other cannabis types.

Of course, as we mentioned, when you smoke THCA in the form of diamonds or even flower, it turns into THC, which does give you the high effects along with the therapeutic benefits. And since the THCA hasn’t been so refined, it’s pure, potent, and often gets people hooked after just one use.

What is a good THCA percentage?

Ideally, you want a percentage of THCA between 15 and 20%. That offers enough of a kick to the cannabinoids as you activate them by smoking. Then, you end up with a product that gives you maximum benefits with fewer risks, too. At lower percentages, the potency might not be there. At higher percentages, the risk of adverse effects will increase.

Make sure that you start small and work your way up, just as with the dosing, so that you don’t overdo it and have a bad experience.

How to use THCA diamonds

THCA diamonds are part of the concentrate family. Therefore, you’ll need to heat them in order to get the benefits of getting high. You can smoke, vape, or dab diamonds, just like any concentrate.


If you want to get fancy (or don’t want to invest in a dab rig), you can crush up diamonds and add them to your flower, as you do with kief or other concentrates. It’s not a common choice, but it’s a good party favor or treat for yourself once in a while.


You can add THCA diamonds to a vaporizer that has a concentrate chamber. Then, heat the device, take a puff, and you’ll experience all the wonders of these pure treats.


By and large, dabbing is the preferred method for enjoying THCA diamonds and other diamond-type concentrates. You can use a nectar collector (also known as a dab tool) and a torch, or invest in an electric dab rig. The latter is the better way to enjoy the experience, as there’s less mess and a lot less work involved.

However you choose to enjoy your diamonds, make sure that you start with just one or two hits and see how you feel. The amount and method of consumption will impact the high you get, so it might take some trial and error to find your favorite way to enjoy these diamonds.

Final Thoughts

If you’re thinking about trying some new concentrates, make sure that you’re getting them from a reliable source. And if you want something a little less powerful than THCA, standard concentrates can still take you out of this world. Visit Verts Dispensary to find your new favorite concentrates today.
