“These live diamonds are produced using AAAA flower that has been flash-frozen to preserve the plant’s biological integrity. Poncho Farms has made a product with exceptional flavours and aroma, which creates a complex combination that blankets all the senses. The finished product contains outstandingly high cannabinoid levels, remarkable terpenes, flavonoids, phenolic amides, and sterols.
Created by a fascinating scientific display via heat press extraction (HPE), heated plated are used to form the crystalline structures, leaving behind only the purest and most potent type of extract: THCA diamonds.
High terpene full-spectrum extracts (HTFSE) and high cannabinoid full-spectrum extracts (HCFSE) describe the two fractions that occur when a full-spectrum extract is produced from cured bud. HTFSEs contain lower amounts of THCA (<50%) and anywhere from 13% to 40% terpenes. While high cannabinoid full-spectrum extracts are roughly 90% THCA, there isn’t exactly room for much else. Terpenes are outright purged from the final product through the extraction process, leaving the tasteless concentrate behind. Typically you will see diamonds or crystals that have been mixed into a terpene “sauce”, thus pairing incredible potency with equally incredible terpene profiles.
While the spectrum within an HTFSE or HCFSE is not the same as that of a live plant, it is still a full-spectrum extract because it has captured all of the plant’s available compounds.
