One answer: Diamond Concentrates at Chronic Therapy.

Cannabis concentrates represent one of the most popular ways to consume flower because of their high potency. The industry has been charging ahead ever since cannabis became legal, continuously making more powerful and more exciting concentrates. One of the biggest new innovations is diamond concentrate, which may be the purest possible way to consume THC.

Here’s some basic information so you too can understand why we’re excited Diamond Concentrates and why you should be too for spring 2019.

How is Shatter Made?

Before you can fully understand how impressive THCA diamond concentrates are, it’s important to master the basics of butane hash oil (BHO) extractions. In a nutshell, a premium cannabis product is treated with compressed butane to squeeze the essence out of the plant. The butane is safely removed from the equation, and we’re left with a concentrated mixture of terpenes, THC, and other cannabinoids.

What is Shatter Wax Made From?

To oversimplify things, the wax is what happens when the concentrate ends up softer than shatter. This kind of extract is also known as shatter, which is a clear material that typically includes THC, CBD and other chemical components, including terpenes. To really make shatter, which is a hard version of butane hash oil, terpene content must be kept low or it works like a solvent that makes the extract soft. The right starting sample can help to reduce the terpenes present in the final product, such as by starting with cured flowers. Since it’s soft, it’s easier for the consumer to take a portion without using any special tools. It has a softer, buttery look compared to shatter, but it can be just as potent.

Shatter is one of the most popular products on the market because it’s beautiful, relatively easy to handle, and can be smoked or vaporized.

Why Diamond Concentrates should be Your Next Purchase Choice for This Spring

Not unlike this explanation, the cannabis concentrate industry has been slowly working toward diamond concentrates. Diamond concentrates are a state of the art innovation that involves purifying live resin even more. Concentrates are more effective when they use better cannabis, and diamond concentrates generally start with nug run BHO. That is, only small nuggets of premium cannabis go into this extraction– the trim that goes into other BHOs has been discarded here for higher quality.

This collection of high-grade flower cryogenically frozen and put through the BHO extraction process, and then it sits to settle. As it settles, the terpenes (essential oils from cannabis) rise to the top of the mixture in a thick oil. Hard crystals of pure THCA settle at the bottom. The extractors harvest these diamonds and wash them off, leaving nothing but 99% pure THCA.

The same customers who always want stronger cannabis are the ones who adore diamond concentrates. These crystals are leaps and bounds ahead of even high-grade shatter and wax because it finally offers a way to vaporize pure THC with no frills.
