What Are Live Diamonds?
Live diamonds are concentrates crafted from fresh-frozen live cannabis using the hydrocarbon extraction process. After extraction, the full spectrum cannabis oil is subjected to low heat and pressure. During this process, THCA molecules “crash out,” meaning the THCA interlocks together and separates from the other cannabis compounds. When this separation happens, the now-interlocked THCA molecules create a clear, crystal formation that looks like a diamond, lending the name.
After the diamonds have formed, the remaining plant compounds coalesce together to what’s known as terp sauce, which is separated from the THCA isolate. Diamonds, being an isolate, are not considered full spectrum. To aid in the flavor and to provide full spectrum benefits, terp sauce is re-introduced to form a balanced consistency for dabbing.
We like to think of Live Diamonds as THCA isolate with a side of terp sauce.
What Is THCA?
THCA, or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is one of the most abundant cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. The cannabinoid is non-intoxicating, until heat is applied. Once heat is a To get THCA to convert to THC heat is applied for an immediate conversion or overtime the THCA will slowly turn into THC. Cannabis plants are primarily comprised of THCA and start to experience a shift once being harvested and dried. This means that most flower purchased by patients are still mostly THCA. Once you get it home and light it is when the change in molecular structure happens.

Are Live Diamonds Strain Specific?
Live Diamonds on their own are not strain specific – it is the full spectrum terp sauce that provides these benefits. The terp sauce is made of cannabinoids and other plant compounds, extracted from either MÜV premium or Verano Reserve cultivars grown at the MÜV Cultivation. Diamonds will be showcased first in Verano Reserve Live Diamonds in Beach Cake and MÜV Live Diamonds in Modified Grapes.
Verano Reserve Beach Cake
Beach Cake is, fittingly, the child of two Florida-created strains. Triangle Kush, a potent indica with prominent notes of gas, was crossed with Florida Cake, an indica-hybrid with sweet notes, to form a powerhouse Verano Reserve cultivar. Deep purple emanates from the green bud, with deep orange hairs peeking out. While a new cultivar, Beach Cake has already become a staple strain for many MÜVers.
MÜV Modified Grapes
As an indica-leaning hybrid, Modified Grapes has a lot to offer many patients. Commonly used to treat anxiety, the strain also offers relief to those who suffer from depression, mood disorders, and has been said to aid in easing the mind and helping with sleep, according to MÜV Patients. The purple buds covered in a trichome blanket have a smell of fruity berries, diesel fuel, and earthiness. Modified Grapes is a cross between Purple Punch and GMO, and patients who swear by the strain say you can really taste the Purple Punch on the inhale and the funky GMO on the exhale.
