They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but in the cannabis world, diamonds are everyone’s best friend! These sparkling beauties aren’t something you’d find in a jewelry store – they’re a fascinating and potent form of cannabis concentrate that has captivated the attention of enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike. 


Here at Roots Rx, Colorado’s favorite dispensary, we believe in the power of cannabis education. In this blog, we’re digging deep into the glittering world of diamonds to discover why they are a treasure worth exploring.


Defining Cannabis Diamonds

Diamonds hold a sparkling reputation in the cannabis community, and for good reason. Diamonds, known for their crystal-like appearance, are a type of cannabis concentrate that closely resemble the gems you’d find in a high-end jewelry store.

Unlike ordinary diamonds, though, people prize these specific diamonds for their high THC levels – the psychedelic element in cannabis. Their stunning clarity and impressive structure are not just a treat for the eyes but a mark of their purity and potency.

The texture of diamonds can vary, but they typically present as small, clear to slightly amber-hued crystalline structures. These gems are often found nestled in a saucy, terpene-rich concentrate, adding to their allure and flavor profile. The combination of their striking appearance and potent nature is what makes diamonds a premium choice among cannabis aficionados. 


The Creation Process

The creation of diamonds is as fascinating as the concentrates themselves. Here’s the process that cannabis plants go through to become gorgeous and gleaming diamonds:

  • Extraction: Once a high-quality cannabis plant has been chosen, the creation of diamonds begins with a meticulous extraction process using a solvent-based method. The most common solvents used are butane or propane, which are adept at extracting the THC-rich oils from the cannabis plant material. This process needs to be carried out with precision and expertise, as it’s crucial to maintain the perfect balance of temperature and pressure, kind of like real diamonds.

  • Purification: Next, the extract undergoes a careful purging of solvents, often using advanced vacuum ovens. This step is critical for safety and ensuring the purity and potency of the final product. The result is a concentrate that’s not only powerful but also free of any unwanted residues.

  • Crystal Formation: After purifying the extract, it is left to mature. During this phase, it begins to separate naturally due to differences in compounds. Then, the THC within the concentrate starts to crystallize. This process is influenced by factors like temperature, pressure, and the specific concentration of THC and other cannabinoids. The precise control of these factors is what allows the THC to form into distinct crystalline structures. To encourage crystal growth, the extract is often gradually cooled in a controlled environment.


  • Separation: Once the crystals have reached the desired size, they are separated from the remaining liquid. This liquid, often rich in terpenes and other cannabinoids, is usually processed separately and can enhance the final product’s flavor and aroma

  • Quality & Safety Testing: After all that, the diamonds go through the same quality and safety testing as all cannabis products. Once they’re cleared, they’re packaged and ready to shine!


Consuming Cannabis Diamonds

Diamonds are dazzling to look at, but they’re also delightful to consume. Diamonds offer a rich and immersive experience. They’re a symphony for the senses, delivering unparalleled potency and purity. Let’s go through the different ways we can savor every bit of diamonds’ splendor.



One of the most popular ways to consume diamonds is through dabbing. This method involved using a dab rig, which is somewhat similar to a bong but specifically designed for concentrates. The diamonds are placed on a heated surface, often referred to as a nail, which vaporizes the concentrate, allowing for inhalation. 


Dabbing is renowned for its ability to deliver a powerful, fast-acting experience. The intense flavor and high potency are major draws for this method. However, it requires specific equipment and a bit of know-how, making it a bit less accessible for beginners.



Vaporizing is another popular method, offering a more user-friendly and discreet way to enjoy diamonds. Using a concentrate vaporizer, the diamonds are heated to a point where they turn into vapor but don’t combust. 


This method is appreciated for its convenience and the ability to control the temperature, which can result in a smoother, more tailored experience. Vaporizers are portable, easy to use, and less intimidating. 


The experience may be less intense compared to dabbing, which could be a pro or con, depending on your preference.


Regardless of the method chosen, it’s crucial to consider the potency of diamonds. They are significantly more potent than flower, so a little goes a long way. This is especially important for those who are new to cannabis concentrates. Start with a small amount to gauge your tolerance and response before trying more.
