LA KUSH MINTZ – THCA Diamonds
THCA – 98.99%
LA Kush Mints is said to contain 90% Indica and a small 10% Sativa. With such numbers, you may expect heavy sedation that will lock you to your couch, but instead, this strain is renowned for giving its users an uplifting high that can be stimulating, energetic, and mood-boosting.
LA Kush Mints is oftentimes used to gain relief from depression, anxiety, and physical pain. The physical high of this strain can be quite heavy, but many users describe how the calming effect places them in a productive mood and energy.
Because of its high potency, this cannabis strain is best used by seasoned marijuana users who are looking for an all-day Indica with relaxing yet energetic effects. Depending on the dosage, the last streak of this bud’s physical high may bring about sleepiness. But even then, the happy feelings and positive vibes of this strain shine through.
WHAT ARE THCA DIAMONDS?
Every time it seems like we’ve reached the ultimate pinnacle of achievement in cannabis extracts, something new comes along that gets you even higher. Right now, at the tip top of the high-end hash market, are “diamonds”—large lovely crystals of pure THCA, the “acid” form of cannabis’ main active ingredient, THC.
For THCA, the process of crystallization takes at least two weeks, sometimes a month, but such patience is rewarded. The resulting diamonds—composed of isolated, homogeneous molecules—test at 95 to 98% pure THCA.
Testing five times as strong as cannabis buds, these THCA diamonds are “dabbed” off of special water-pipes (Dab Rigs, E-Nails, Wax Pens, etc.), resulting in soaring euphoria appropriate only for high-tolerance aficionados.
Diamonds are like the “Moonshine” or “Everclear” of concentrates, and as such should be avoided by those who don’t know what they’re getting themselves into.
Unlike Moonshine or Everclear, however, crystalline THC can only be activated by a process called decarboxylation (fancy science talk for “adding heat to it”), so ingesting this substance will yield no effect. The best method of consumption for this particular type of concentrate, much like many others, is dabbing it with a trusty dab rig.
