Most people when they here pure crystal, they think of the pure crystal dust location in World of Warcraft. What we mean here is a form of marijuana extraction product, a cannabis isolate. When you see keef weed crystals on your herbal bud, you are witnessing what a pure marijuana crystal is like, but oh so limited. What if you had a lot of that?
The safest way is to use it is topical. Say you have 99 % CBD crystals and you want to apply it to irritation on the skin. You are going to have to melt it down and mix it with an oil like coconut oil and make a tincture as explained on our site here: https://www.fvkasa.org/diy/make-cannabis-tincture-recipes
Now let’s look at the price and where to buy online. If it is legal in your jurisdiction, some companies allow online ordering. Here are some examples. Compared to regular weed, concentrates tend to be more expensive, especially crystalline.
You learned on our site here how to make butane hash oil and shatter: https://www.fvkasa.org/diy/make-bho-wax-and-shatter The crystalline definition is a product which is 80 % to 100 % pure. Most crystallized weed which still has plant material in it can be as much as 69% pure and have names like glass or dust. Shatter THC can have as high as 80% THC content. Some use a Butane extraction method, others CO2 extraction, and some even the Rosin Tech Method. If you want THC-a, the non-heated form which has to be decarboxylated with heat in order to be active and produce a high effect, you have to be careful with heat exposure. If you want even more than 80% THC content, you produce oil using this method, then pass it through different solvents and filtrations in order to remove the remaining water and plant material. This is best left to professionals. A summary of the full process, you can see at this informative blog: https://blog.kushmarketplace.com/how-to-grow-crystal-thc-and-cbd/ You can learn in the video below each step in the process. You will need lab equipment for this. Your average beginner, of course, need only make a trip to the weed shop, after looking online to see what’s available:
This is the most popular way to consume crystalline weed. Make sure you use the appropriate dose and a vaping device made to use with marijuana concentrates.
If you want to get super high, you will be using an oil rig and smoking your crystalline weed like you would smoke a dab. You can see the link at the beginning of this section for tips. However, beware. This is pure THC smoked in the strongest way possible. I hope you know what you’re doing.
This site sells pure THC-A crystals, but as you can see, they are sold out, and even no image is available. That tells you good luck getting THC-A crystals online. That might be an in-person kinda thing while getting pure CBD-A should be a piece of cake.
Crystalline CBD of course, will not produce a high but will have anti-inflammatory effects. If you vape or smoke crystalline THCa in a vape pen or oil rig, be ready for a different and clean high. First off, it’s supposed to have no plant matter, but even the say 0.5% that remains can have a bit of a taste when you first inhale. But, once you exhale, you will see the difference. No cough and irritation as caused by whole plant or herbal weed. In fact, you will notice little pain whatsoever throughout the body. You get a very clean, meditative relaxation. Users often report that it’s not the stratosphere high they expected. In fact, it is too clean. They were medically treated for pain and anxiety, but to their surprise, they aren’t that high. What they are experiencing is a lack of the entourage effect. The psychoactive effect of THC relies on the interaction of many cannabinoids and terpenoids, not just one or two. The take-home message is used pure concentrates medically. To get really high, use shatter or oil that has a tent to it, indicating the presence of some concentrated cannabinoids and terpenoids other than the THCA and CBDA single chemical extracts.
To use crystalline THCA and CBD, the most common way is to vape it. We explain various methods to use concentrates on our site here: https://www.fvkasa.org/english/best-ways-smoke-wax-dabs
In fact, THCA Crystalline is believed to be the purest form of concentratethat's scientifically able to be made. If you going to make it by yourself, – just choose one of the popular methods: Butane extraction, CO2 extraction or Rosin Tech methods. Follow our simple instructions and easily making ""DIAMONDS""!
This extract is then mixed with hexane and acetic acid. These are two chemicals that, together, will help further separate the plant material form the THC. This happens by dissolving the plant matter, but keeping the good stuff untouched. This solution is then placed through a filter so that more plant matter can be removed. The remaining liquid will be placed in a rotary evaporator.
When dealing strictly with THC (or THCA), there will be things one must sacrifice. This extract has no terpenes, so it won’t have pungent aromas or flavours. Some consumers even report it to taste like “snowflakes”, which in turn tastes like water, which is tasteless. You get the point. There will be no possible alterations to the product. It doesn’t matter what the strain is or how it was grown, 99% THCA will always be the same. So, you’ll either enjoy the high or you won’t. You’ll also be sacrificing the “entourage effect” that other cannabinoids have on THC. You won’t be experiencing cannabis, you’ll just be experiencing one cannabinoid.
Created by the team over at Guild Extracts, this is an extract composed of 99.997% THCA. Most extracts today will have around 50-80% purity. As the first team to successfully do this, it’s claimed to be the strongest hash in the world. And with a 0.003% margin, it will be hard to improve upon. It has gained extreme popularity due to its uniqueness and purity. And this can be observed with its prices, reaching as high as €170 a gram.
This machine will use different values of pressure, heat, and motion to further separate elements in the solution. After this process, the resulting liquid is called Δ9 tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. But this is still far from what we’re looking for. There will still be impure elements, so chromatography will help remove these. Sephadex-LH20, dichloromethane, and chloroform are added to our tetrahydrocannabinolic acid.
But once you try it, you might be surprised. The high is described as extremely clear, fresh, and energetic. It’s almost a little too clear and fresh for some who describe it as too medical. It might be possible that consumers become so high that they can’t even recognise it for what it is. But the high is surely there; with almost double the purity most of us have experienced, it might just be a high we can’t yet comprehend. But in a way, it’s good that it’s “too medical” because that’s exactly what it should be used for. By using a substance this pure for recreational purposes, it might be hard going back to smoking joints or bowls – the high will be nowhere close.
When dealing with such a pure substance, precision is one of the main advantages. Never before could a patient be so sure of his/her THC intake. When dealing with flower and even other extracts, it’s extremely hard to know the exact THC percentage it contains. The error margins are relatively large. With THCA crystalline, the patient can continuously assess results based on the dosage, knowing that it will always be consistent.
When processed, pure THCA crystallises. Its visual similarities to drugs like cocaine make a lot of people question it. But the true breakthrough with this extract is beyond the recreational market. THCA, when decarboxylated, loses its acidic atom, leaving behind the pure THC. This happens when you light-up or pressure the cannabinoid. This purified cannabinoid came to change the game for all those in need of potent, medical THC.
If you have no basic information on how extracts are made, this might seem a little overwhelming, but the idea behind the process is fairly easy to understand. This all starts with your usual cannabis extract derived from cannabis plant material. But to make the process faster, an already isolated substance is often used.
Never have we witnessed such a level of purity in an extract. The team over at Guild Extracts might’ve been the first, but what this represents is bigger than them. Welcome to the world of 99.9% pure THCA!
