 What Is THCA (pure THC crystals) and CBD Crystalline?

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?

How To Make THC-a Crystalline

You learned on our site here how to make butane hash oil 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: 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:

How to Use Crystalline THCA and CBD?

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:


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:

Eat it

You can also eat it. This can be done the same way by making a tincture and adding it to a recipe. If you want the THCA to become psychoactive, it must be exposed to enough heat to decarboxylate. You melt it, put it in your coconut oil, add it to your food. See our site here to learn how to make delicious edibles:

Vape it

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.

Oil Rig and Other Super High Methods

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.

The Medical Benefits of Smoking Crystalized Extracts

Before we get into the smoking aspect, when you have your pure THCA and CBDA, the acids from which your THC and CBD come from when heated, you already have non-psychoactive potent anti-inflammatories. You can experiment with mixing it into various tinctures and applying it topically to problem areas. You get the anti-inflammatory effect without the high.

Now when you smoke or vape these extracts, with THCA you get potent pain relief and especially an anti-nausea effect which is critical for cancer patients and HIV patients who have lost the ability to eat. It allows them to gain weight and recover.

Also, these concentrates have a knockout punch of anti-pain and sometimes anti-anxiety effects. These extracts can adjust very serious pain such as from cancer, shingles, fibromyalgia, and MS. Because the extracts are pure, it makes it easier for researchers to discover which substances are producing the effects.

What Is The High Like?

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.

Crystalline CBD


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.

Cannabis crystals

This site offers 500 mg of 99% pure CBD crystal for $48. CBD crystals can be used topically or orally by making a tincture.

THC-A crystals

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.

Social Media Review

THC-A crystals review

This review from the same site as above suggests the THC-A diamond product is a real winner. However, the paucity of reviews suggests you might be waiting quite a time if you expect to order it online. So, do your research, and if you have to, show up in person to the dispensary.
