What Are Weed Diamonds?

One of the newest phenomena to hit the cannabis world is so-called weed diamonds. That said, what are diamonds in weed? No, unfortunately, here we are not talking about compressing cannabis to the point where it turns into literal diamonds.

We are talking about taking various cannabinoids and processing them to the point where they do somewhat resemble diamonds. While weed diamonds might not be quite as valuable as the real thing, they do have their uses and benefits. As you can probably imagine, weed diamonds are quite potent.

However, exactly what is diamond-infused weed? Today, we’re going to figure out exactly what weed diamonds are, how they’re made, how they make you feel, and more.

Key Takeaways

  • Weed diamonds are crystalline cannabis extracts that look like diamonds
  • Weed diamonds are made through a two-step process
  • Cannabis diamonds can contain up to 99% THC
  • Diamonds are usually made out of THCA or CBD

What Are Diamonds in Weed?

Just to be painfully clear, here we are not talking about real diamonds. Rather, cannabis diamonds are a type of concentrated cannabis that you can vape or smoke.

Yes, they do somewhat look like diamonds. They feature very solid crystalline structures that are partially transparent. They do also have the rough shape and appearance of diamonds.

In simplest terms, weed diamonds are just another form of cannabis concentrate. They are not unlike shatter, rosin, wax, or anything else of the sort, although there are of course differences between them.

One of the biggest defining features of weed diamonds is that they are extremely potent. These weed diamonds can feature up to 99% THCA or THC, if not more. Let’s move on and figure out how they are made.

How Are Weed Diamonds Made?

Making cannabis diamonds is not all that different from making other types of cannabis concentrates. What is interesting is that making weed diamonds is a two-step process, unlike other cannabis concentrates which usually only require one step to produce.

Cannabis diamonds are made out of a concentrate known as sauce. Sauce is glossy and runny. It’s a somewhat thick yet malleable cannabis concentrate, almost like shatter, but not nearly as hard or solid. Sauce is made through a special closed-loop process where a solvent is added to the cannabis. That solvent effectively extracts the cannabinoids from the cannabis, which are then further processed.

That cannabis sauce is then further processed using a process known as diamond mining, where both pressure and heat are used to create these crystalline structures that we know as cannabis diamonds. The isolated THC is mixed with a solvent to create a solution that is supersaturated, and then pressure and heat are applied. The diamonds slowly form a while the solvent evaporates out of them.

There is also another way to make weed diamonds, mainly using a closed-loop extraction method. Here, instead of using heat and pressure, the solvent is purged out of the THC extract over the course of several weeks, which leaves behind cannabinoid crystals. However, the heat and pressure method, otherwise known as the crystalline method, is the more popular method, because it is much faster.

Can Any Cannabinoid Be Made Into Diamonds?

Technically speaking, there is no reason why any cannabinoid cannot be made into weed diamonds. However, the two most common substances made into weed diamonds are THCA and CBD. Remember, THCA is just the inactive version of THC. When THCA is heated up, it turns into THC. The most popular type of weed diamond is made out of THCA.

How to Smoke Weed Diamonds

Weed diamonds are a type of concentrate that is very hard. Generally speaking, this means that you can’t really consume them in an edible format. If you do want some edibles, check out our Botany Farms Delta-8 THC Tropical Mix Gummies. However, you can smoke or vaporize weed diamonds, so let’s take a quick look at the best consumption methods.

Dab Them

One of the most popular ways to consume weed diamonds is by dabbing them in a nectar collector or a dab rig. Dabbing is essentially just vaporizing, although a special type.

Using a dab rig involves heating a piece of metal or glass to the point where it is so hot that when you touch the cannabis concentrate to it, it immediately turns into an airborne vapor that you can then inhale.

Dab rigs look very similar to water bongs used to smoke cannabis flower. This is perhaps the easiest, fastest, and most effective way to consume weed diamonds.

Vape Them

You could also vaporize them using an electronic vaporizer. Here, you are going to need a concentrate insert, which is more or less a small canister which you can put your own cannabis extracts into. These can be somewhat expensive, and loading them up and keeping them clean is not overly easy.

However, the big benefit here is that once you have your concentrate insert loaded up with weed diamonds, the whole package is quite portable. You can take it with you on the go, plus most vaporizers also allow you to control the temperature for the best vaping experience.

Add to Joints, Blunts, Bowls, and More

If you are still a fan of smoking your cannabis, then there is no reason why you cannot take those weed diamonds and add them to your bong bowls, blunts, spliffs, joints, and pipes. You can even get infused pre-rolls.

You can break up these weed diamonds and mix them in with your ball cannabis flower, your hash, and other extracts too. Although, keep in mind that this method of consumption involves combustion, not vaporization, which is not quite as healthy for the lungs. Our own Botany Farms Delta-8 Blueberry Diesel flower is one of our favorites to mix with weed diamonds.

How Are Diamonds Different from Other Cannabis Concentrates?

The main difference between weed diamonds and other cannabis concentrates is their potency. Weed diamonds can be up to 99% potent, if not more. On the other hand, most other cannabis concentrates are usually between 70% and 90% potent. This means that cannabis diamonds are going to get you much higher.

Weed diamonds also require a two-step process to produce, as opposed to most other cannabis extracts which usually only require a one-step process. On that note, due to how difficult weed diamonds are to produce, and because of how rare they are, they also tend to be very expensive, more expensive than virtually all other cannabis extracts out there.

Are Weed Diamonds Safe?

Just like other cannabinoids, particularly those made out of THC, weed diamonds may produce some minor side effects, such as dizziness, headaches, gastrointestinal upset, paranoia, and anxiety. This is especially the case due to the extreme potency of weed diamonds. With that being said, weed diamonds are not known to cause any toxic or life-threatening symptoms. While the side effects may feel quite strong at times, they generally are nothing to be concerned about.


The bottom line is that if you are looking for a very powerful cannabis concentrate, weed diamonds are certainly worth checking out. They’re going to get you higher than anything else ever has.
