What is kief and how can you use it?

September 23, 2020

If you plant or grow your own marijuana, when it is time for harvesting, you would notice trichomes that come on the buds as well as the leaves. These trichomes appear a little cloudy, looking like smaller sizes of mushrooms. These components contain high levels of THC, Terpenes, and other cannabinoids which are found in the overall plant.

When they become dry, they can then form a component which is called Kief. Kief is greatly desired due to its high concentration and heightened potency. Normally, kiefs are known to have about 50% THC but numerous reports suggest they can also reach as much as 70%-75% and this happens rarely. While concentrates top Kief in terms of potency, both components are obtained from the cannabis plant and kief requires a little amount to get the kind of high you want.

In this paragraph, we would give ideas on what you can use kief for but for now, let’s look at how you can create or extract kief from the cannabis plant.

How to separate kief from the cannabis plant

When extracting kief we recommend that you go with the three-chamber grinder due to the fact it is much easier to process than the two-chamber grinder and the three-chamber finely grinds your cannabis plant more. This type of grinder also makes it possible that the kief goes through to a compartment where it is collected and stored unlike sticking to the inside of the grinder with the two-chamber type.

Some users also prefer going with coins and a stiffer box. All you have to do is to clean the complements first and put a reasonable amount that can be extracted into the Stifler box. Shake all components together with the marijuana for about 60 seconds and when that is done, open the box to check the amount of Kief that has been extracted. If you want more, you can keep shaking.

Collecting high-quality Kief involves using 3 or 4 layers of mesh screen set on top of each other and the best quality mesh should be placed below. With these steps, you can get premium Kief without having plant particles in your end result.

Once your kief is extracted, you can store it in a corked container and if you don’t use it often, shake and mix all the kief materials so that they won’t get stuck together at least every day.
