The next best thing to real diamonds, Dr.Ganja’s very own Rawbar THCA Isolate Diamonds are here and they are out of this world! We’re ecstatic to bring you the newest addition to our concentrate lineup, and as usual with the Dr.G or Rawbar name, these are packing some serious heat. They have a small and somewhat crumbly texture that makes it easy to load them up however you’d like or pop them straight down the hatch! These are hemp-derived and contain the natural terpenes of the flower giving them amazing floral aromatics with notes of pine, cedar, and mint!
These 5g THCA Isolate diamonds also have small amounts of other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBGA and CBC for an even stronger effect. Users say that using a small amount of this THCA isolate goes a long way and the buzz lasts for hours! Additionally, they have been thoroughly tested by third-party labs to ensure you’re getting exactly what’s advertised and nothing less! But if less is what you’re looking for, we also offer these diamonds in 2g form as well.
Perhaps you’re wondering how can these beauties be used? The sky is the limit but these scintillating nuggets can be popped in your typical dab rig, vaped, or sprinkled on joints or to top off bowls. Please note that while they also can be consumed as an edible, they are activated with heat or light, so if you’re seeking that nice stoned effect, you’ll want to activate them first which can be achieved in something as simple as an oven. Apparently, the acid in the stomach also can potentially decarboxylate (activate) THCA into THC so this step may be unnecessary, but this is still not certain. Some users use THCA Isolates such as these for their anti-inflammatory properties, which should not be activated by heat or light to reap the benefits as once they are decarboxylated, they do not retain all of their therapeutic benefits.
Again, THCA Isolates such as these are converted into THC with light or heat, so if you consume these through vaping or smoking they are extremely potent and psychoactive! If you are new to concentrates or have a low tolerance to THC, please initially use in very small amounts. Do not consume THCA isolate if you are subject to random drug screenings.

What’s in your bud?
What is THCA?
You likely have heard of THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid most commonly found in, and associated with, cannabis plants. But what about THCA? Is it related to THC somehow, and perhaps most importantly, does it have the same effects?
THCA, known fully as tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is found naturally in hemp and cannabis plants. It is in fact very chemically similar to THC, with the “A” addition in THCA simply being an acidic group that essentially “falls off” when heat or light are applied to it. While this is an oversimplification, the “falling off” process of the acidic group is called decarboxylation, and it is through this process that the compound becomes active and has a psychoactive effect when consumed. Thus, THCA basically has the same effect as THC because for all intents and purposes after heating it or exposing it to light, it is THC.
If you consume THCA without heating it or exposing it to UV light (that is, you don’t decarboxylate it), it won’t have the psychoactive effects many are seeking because it has not been activated. So, if you are consuming THCA as an edible and are seeking a stone or buzz from it, it must be decarboxylated first which can be easily achieved in the oven. There are anecdotes of consumers feeling the psychoactive properties of THCA after ingesting it and NOT activating it, and an explanation of the stomach acid decarboxylating THCA into THC has been given, however this is not certain, so if you’re looking to get the most bang out of your buck recreationally it is still best to decarb through a heating source such as an oven.
THCA is the chemical precursor to THC and just like there is CBG there is also CBGA, and CBC and CBCA. These XXX-A precursors are basically the mother molecules that change into their active forms, XXX, when placed under the right conditions, in this case again, heat or light. Interestingly, much like these other cannabinoids such as CBGA, THCA has been shown in the research to have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. It should be noted however, that these benefits are for its non-activated form of THCA and not THC! Once it is decarboxylated it does not retain all of these properties.
THCA is sold in many different forms from crystalline solids, to larger diamond nuggets, to isolate powders. As a cannabinoid concentrate, they can be used similarly and can be directly vaped, smoked, or dabbed, and are often used to top off bowls or joints to add an enhanced effect. It is important to note that if you are subject to random drug screenings or have a drug screening scheduled in the future, that you DO NOT consume THCA or THCA isolates.
The compound THCA sold on Dr.Ganja is legally derived from hemp and does not contain more than 0.3% Δ9-THC in accordance with the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the 2018 Farm Bill). Within the Bill, it states that all derivatives, isomers and cannabinoids in hemp are federally legal provided that all final products contain less than 0.3% D9 THC.
- If you are subject to routine drug screenings, do not consume THCA.
- Each state has their own separate laws regarding hemp products. Please be aware of the laws within your state/province of residence.
- Please do not operate a vehicle after consuming THCA products.
- Consult your doctor before use.
