Crystalline is an immaculate form of cannabis concentrate extract that comes in a solid-state, comprising a single type of cannabinoid, primarily tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiol, or cannabidiolic acid. Interestingly, it resembles a kind of coarse sugar that is typically used for adorning the tops of baked fruit pies or for embellishing sugar cookies.
Additionally, the formation of crystalline evolves after thorough refining of the cannabis oil and provides a foundation for formulated cannabis products. While possibly more vigorous, crystalline does not possess the flavor of other concentrates and misses out on the medicinal advantages because of its isolation from the original terpenes.
Crystalline’s popularity has grown phenomenally over the years since its introduction by Guild Extracts. Isolated THCA offers various ways to enjoy the benefits of crystalline.
