What Are THC Crystals Used For?

Crystals can also be dissolved into olive oil or coconut oil to make homemade tinctures.

A THC crystal is a solid cannabis concentrate that appears in crystalline form and contains pure cannabinoids. THC crystals offer one of the purest ways to consume THC, since they are isolated from other cannabinoids and terpenes. Also known as crystals, diamonds, or crystalline, THC crystals are a cannabis concentrate that resembles coarse sugar, much like the kind used to decorate baked goods. Crystals of THC only contain THCA, without plant matter, other cannabinoids, or terpenes. As a result, they are tasteless and odorless. Through a process called decarboxylation, THC crystals transform into pure THC and produce the psychoactive effects for which the cannabinoid is known. Crystals of THC are formed by thoroughly and repeatedly refining cannabis oil into a single substance. Crystalline is often the base isolate for cannabis product formulations, such as edibles and vape cartridges. When consumed in the same dose, its effects are predictable and consistent. Crystals of THC can be used in a variety of ways, making them a versatile option for cannabis consumption. THC crystals can be consumed orally by adding them to homemade edibles or melting them in butter or cooking oil. Crystals can also be dissolved into olive oil or coconut oil to make homemade tinctures. THC crystals can be put directly into a dab rig for a higher, more immediate burst of THC potency. THC crystals can also be mixed with other cannabis concentrates or concentrated terpenes to enhance their potency or obtain more specific effects. It is a versatile, high-potency concentrate that patients can use in a variety of ways. THC crystals, however, lack terpenes and other compounds that produce specific, targeted effects, so if you want to use cannabis for a particular condition, you may want to look at other kinds of products.
