THC-A Crystalline: The Strongest Hash in the World at 99.99% THC

By Allie Beckett, Marijuana.com

There’s a new kid on the block; her name is Crystalline, and she’s from the Hash Family.

Crystalline hash is the latest craze in the hash community, and everyone wants a taste. The demand is so high that THC-A Crystalline is going for $200 a gram in southern California dispensaries.

Testing in at an astonishing 99.9% THC, Crystalline is officially the strongest hash on the market. Other concentrates such as ice hash, rosin, and BHO range from 50-80% THC.

Cannabis concentrates are known for their variety of textures and forms, from shatter to wax to crumble, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. What many extract lovers don’t realize is that these various textures develop from the solvent used to make the concentrate and the methods of purging the solvent out of the final product. However, when THC is reduced to its purest state, it crystallizes, creating crystal ‘rocks’ which look very different than any other marijuana concentrate on the market.

Crystalline turns many people off just because of its looks. The internet is filled with scornful reviews of its meth-like appearance, and this criticism is entirely valid.  But don’t judge a book by its cover because cannabis crystalline is the purest form of THC and provides sufficient relief for many patients suffering from debilitating and fatal illnesses. And hey, it’s not THC’s fault that it’s a compound with a crystal structure.

thccrystalline-3Guild Extracts, a Southern California extraction company, is the current leader of crystalline production. Their crystallizing process is kept under lock and key, but they claim the ability to make THC-A Crystalline out of any starting material ranging from hydrocarbon extract, CO2 extract, and ice water concentrate. One thing Guild Extracts has made clear is that they are not using a solvent to create this hash, rather, they are extracting pure THC from their starting materials.

You may be wondering, what exactly is THC-A Crystalline? Well, before THC is combusted (lit on fire or vaporized) it sits in its raw acidic form, also known as THC-A. THC-A by itself is completely inactive, meaning if it is ingested it will not get you high (but it does have an extraordinary amount of medicinal benefits). When THC-A is activated through heat in a process called decarboxylation, the acidic carbon atom (the “A” in THC-A) is removed leaving behind the psychoactive THC that so many of us know and love.

Now remember, this pure THC does not contain terpenes (the magical compounds that give cannabis strains their distinctive aroma and flavor profiles while contributing to their therapeutic effects). To make up for the lack of flavor, Guild Extracts has become famous for the “dip n dab,” dipping the crystalline concentrate into terpenes extracted from strains like Goji OG, Tangie, and Sherbert.

While the sky-high potency may scare some away, Crystalline provides a surprisingly clean, focused, and inspired high. Plus, health nuts can rest easy knowing that THC-A Crystalline is completely free of any chemical inputs (think butane).

    Spend the $ on a super Critical Co2 extraction set up, but that’s just the beginning.. better have lots of spare $$. Gotta have Doe to make bread

  2. Just me

    What do you think of breaking down oil in water with an ultrasonic liquid processor (http://sonomechanics.com/products_services/1200_w_bench-scale_processor/) to almost water soluble then putting it in a mason jar an forming crystals like you would make rock salt or rock candy I figure if thc-a is a crystalline structure it should form the same way i don’t know it’s just a theory

    Can this be purchased and intravenously injected?? Coke turned heroin addict looking for an alternative to the “needle addiction”. Those who have never banged anything don’t understand but I’m in recovery and thats the only itch I can’t shake. It I had an alternative to use once in a while itd help a whole lot.

    Thanks

    steam is the trick with glass on glass friction -steam substance over glass bowl -evaporate concentrate while stirring with glass rod in contact with glass bowl do not stop stirring until crystals finish forming on rod -kia ora ra
    steam 75-90 degrees celcius or as long as it wont burn your skin

    I use a coffee grinder to bust up my buds then I collect the fine cystals and dust from the lid of my coffee grinder in a glass vile for months then press it to make finger hash…

    1. Gary

      I do the same thing with the results of unbelievable amounts of kief

      1. Gary

        And lots of people knock using coffee grinders saying that it ruins the buds well of course it does but you’re getting high grade kief in the mean time

    How to get this extract? Hmmmn. I would say, start out with cold water extraction. Get it clean and instead of mashing the mush together, you spread it out, or fluff it through a metal strainer of some sort. Get it spread over a wide surface, and let dry. Your basically trying to remove all plant material from the extract. Some weed just comes out all crystalline like that even using butaine.

    You need to post the JPG from the FaceBook Link I followed….that was the whole point. Now I have capture the screen-shot and open it in MS Paint.

    I’ve been making this for years. https://www.facebook.com/999Hash/

    The pic in this link is only to give readers an example of how the A-Pow Sour Diesel looks fluffy (That’s it). The little boulders from the first pic container look like crystal rocks, but truly it’s just fluff compacted. With a gentle tap a boulder brakes into fluff. Not something you would chop negatively or snort (lame). A very delicate wonderful product. http://sclabs.com/sample-detail.html?id=156430

    Lol well I’m here to dispel all of your comments. This product is epic and of course $200 a gram in LA (Lame). LA dorks always have a fuct market. Fuck LA shady dispensaries. NorCal is the true way in every way. Truth: In San Jose, Ca. at Airfield dispensary (best of the best) (located behind SJC, across from Earthquakes Stadium) (((Must have Paperwork, not card to get in))) you can get an incredible product called A-POW SOUR DIESEL, 99.97% Class F first. $100 per gram. You have to ask for it. It’s stored in the back under lock and key.
    Everything about this high is supreme, clean and positive. Dab one scoop from a dab spoon and your’re good to go. No goofiness, just clean pure lucid powerful Jedi love. The authors discription was spot on. Supreme medicine. You will gladdly hand over $. Don’t be lame and over blow the structure. It looks crazy amplified like anything. It looks like protein powder. Delicate and fluffy. Not good at all with v-pens. Best result use glass on glass. Clean, clean clean.

    Bad flavor, zero terps, chemical flavor similar to meth, uhm, from what i heard.

  15. Edub

    That’s something like this came out 10 years ago call Delta 9 it was at a cannabis club in Northern California and San Leandro call the health center anybody from the bay area that was smoking pop 10 years ago love you 12 years ago actually know about it

    It does help some people, and it annoys me that because other people like to get high on it, it is banned for people who would feel less pain, or less impairment from MS. Synthesising a substitute is putting the cart before the horse, out of sheer panic at the thought that some people would fry their brains on it.

    Some people rot their livers on alcohol, but I’m still allowed to buy wine to enjoy with my dinner sometimes. So why the paranoia?

    This version may or may not help, but it’s long past time that we could do some rational experimentation on how it would benefit people who aren’t being benefited by inferior drugs.

    I don’ see how they can justify two hundred a gram .

    1. Anonymous

      It could be based on the amount of plant matter & time actually used to produce that gram. If it takes 1/2oz ($160) Labor/expenses ($40) That would add up to $200 a gram.

  18. martin beck

    two hundred dollars a gram . more greed more greed I knew this would happen

    The only thing that really bothers me here is that the article says that it looking like meth is a valid concern, it isn’t, and here’s why: All solids crystallize. Sea salt looks like it does because it is a solid, and all pure solids tend to be crystalline in nature. Pure caffeine, pure vanillin, pure nepalactone (think: catnip), These are all crystalline solids, when purified and recrystallized, there is nothing remaining but a crystal structure. This is the reason why “Ice” or “Super meth” which has a high purity, looks crystalline. This is why “crank” as they call it (which are the things removed from the meth during manufacture, but still many addicts smoke it) is a cakey looking powder (because it is not a single molecule, and therefore, won’t crystallize like a pure molecule (like caffeine, vanillin, or THC-A) would. I don’t want to come across in a nitpicky way, but I am a highly educated scientist, I’ve never tried cannabis, but it’s science is both simple, and worth addressing. This plant has amazing applications. When someone sees an extracted recrystallized substance (probably the first they’ve ever seen, happening to be THC-A), It’s not fair to justify fear because of it’s appearance, when it’s appearance is only surprising due to the observers complete lack of chemistry education. Meth looks like any solid recrystallized extract, but to relate any such material automatically to drugs, or meth, just shows a complete lack of education on fairly basic science. Justifying fear or concern because of this ignorance is irresponsible, and makes you look uninformed to someone who is informed. it is for this reason that I disagree that concern over it’s visual comparison to meth is “completely valid”.

      Thank you for your rational input. You have left the best comment from a nonsmoker that I may have ever read online. Truly.

      How does this compare to the THC that was around in the 70’s?
