Step Up Your Weed Game with Kief

If you are familiar with cannabis, you might know that THC is the active component of the plant that makes you high. The highest THC level is in the kief, and you can filter it out to have the most potent experience possible. It comes from the plant’s resin and is also known as “bud resin.” If you are smoking marijuana for medical purposes or want to have a potent hit, you might consider using it. 

About Kief

This is the part of the cannabis plant that has the THC in it. THC is the psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. The kief is part of the trichomes in the plant. These are small outgrowths that look like fine plant hairs. If you hold your bud up to the light, you might see tiny crystals on the hairs. 

They are the resin of the cannabis bud, and this is where your THC is. If you shake the bud, the crystals will fall off, and the THC will also come out. You will still get the cannabinoids, but not as much of the THC. 

Getting Kief Out

Look for a kief sifter or collector to get your kief out of the bud. You can get a specialized system or a grinder that works for kief separation or extraction. Look for a grinder that has three chambers, which is a chamber grinder. 

Luckily, there are many devices that are designed to catch the kief. Whether you want to smoke your cannabis or want to grind some for your future use, there is not a shortage of kief catchers or screens out there to help you meet your smoking goals. Just make sure that what you are looking for can collect as much of the pollen as possible. 

There will also be dust particles at the grinder’s bottom. That is the kief, so do not let its dusty appearance fool you. Each of the tiny pieces of dust has a lot of THC in it, and if you just put this in the bowl, it would stick to the walls of your device. That is why there are a few ways of using your kief the best way. 

Using Your Kief

Using Your Kief

After collecting your kief, you can do many things with the product. You can use it to enhance the experience, and you can smoke them as they are. You can also put them into edibles or even make “moon rocks” from the substance.

Smoking It

If you want to smoke some of the kief, you can garnish your bowl with it. You will add a nice kick to the hit. Just pack your usual bowl and then put a pinch of the kief in the bowl, and each hit will make you feel even higher. You will not be wasting any kief since none will stick to the sides of your bowl. 

You can also roll it up into your joint. Just prepare the rolling paper as you would usually do and then grind up the cannabis. Before you roll up the paper, take a pinch of the kief and sprinkle it over your mix. It will be sticky, so you might have to roll it off your fingers and drop it along the joint. It should be mixed in evenly and ensure that you do not overdo it. 

Making Tea or Coffee

It is not hard to make tea or coffee drinks with kief to kick off the morning. It is easy to make it as well and can add some fun to your morning or afternoon. All you have to do for coffee is add some of the kief to your coffee cup and put any other ingredients you typically add, such as milk or sugar. 

To make tea, cut a small hole in a loose-leaf tea bag and add some of the kief to it. Then allow it to steep in your boiling water as you usually would. If you are brewing a whole pot of tea, add a couple of pinches of kief to your mix.

Making Edibles

Kief is a crystallized form of THC, and many people who like to take cannabis in cakes, brownies, or muffins might be interested in adding kief to their cooking. The best way to add kief to your dishes is to make kief oil. Put the oil or butter on low heat on the stove and then sprinkle some kief into it. Then stir the two of them together using a spoon. 

Just make sure that you keep stirring it so you can prevent burning or scorching of the butter or oil. The key is to keep it on the low heat for a while, up to several hours or longer. The THC will then bind to the fat molecules. You can then use the mixture the way that you want to. If the recipe calls for butter or oil, you can substitute the kief oil instead. 

Storing Kief

Storing Kief

There are many ways that you can keep your kief. You can use airtight glass containers to preserve the potency and flavour of your product. This prevents you from wasting it. 

You can find many different online stores with glass containers that can seal well. You can find them in many sizes and styles. Then put the kief in it. When it is time to get it out, use a sturdy utensil to scrape it out. 

If there is a lot of kief on the walls of the jar, place it in the freezer for a few hours to loosen the pollen from the walls of the jar. That can help you to reduce any waste.

Closing Thoughts 

Whether you are a medical user or want to use cannabis for recreational purposes, kief can be a fun product to use. It is not hard to collect it yourself, and it is very straightforward. You do not need much equipment, and the result is rewarding.
