What Is Kief and How Do You Consume It?

Have you ever looked closely at all those little sticky crystals all over hemp flower and wondered what they were? Well, they’re called kief and they are just one part of the trichomes of a plant. Kief is also referred to as dry sift or pollen in the industry. Kief itself is specifically the resin glands that house terpenes and cannabinoids that make each strain so unique.

Before being harvested, trichomes that house kief play a big role in protecting the plant from the environment and herbivores. Essentially, when consumed, these trichomes pack such a big psychoactive experience punch that the animal won’t be able to eat the rest of the plant. Kief for consumers is getting more popular every day even though it has a long history.

How do you consume kief?

Once kief is extracted down to just the powdery substance that is pure kief, there are many ways to enjoy it. Overall, kief is a great way to consume hemp or cannabis while avoiding putting higher amounts of charred material into your body. Once kief is extracted, there are a few popular ways it is consumed:

CBD Moon Rocks - These little nuggets like the ones from JAXON melt away stress and help you chill out to the max. These little nuggets pack a huge CBD punch with an astonishing 46% potency! These Moon Rocks start with small, but mighty Bubba Kush buds then are soaked with broad spectrum CBD distillate, infused with Gelato profile terpenes, and then rolled in pure CBG kief. These moon rocks are also packed with 10% total CBG and 0.22% THC, while still being rich in flavor. Moon Rocks are best enjoyed smoked in a hash pipe or bowl. Breaking them up for rolling will extend the burn, while adding potency and flavor. Treat yourself and enjoy the effects of this high potency, deliciously flavored product.

Crowning a Bowl - This is another very common use for kief. Essentially it’s just sprinkling a little kief on top of your bowl. This method greatly increases your potency just by adding a little bit of kief.

Mix kief into pre-rolls or joints - A great way to add an extra punch to your joints or pre-rolls. The stickiness of kief makes it very conducive to sticking to freshly ground flower, making rolling a joint with kief in it fairly easy. Then enjoy!

Make kief hash - Since the first step to making hash is extracting kief, this is very common. Hash is essentially a soft, green mass of kief that has been heated and pressurized.

Use kief for cooking - Since kief has a much more subtle taste than cannabis or hemp flower, but also boasts a much more concentrated make up, kief is awesome for adding to foods like your favorite mocha drink or homemade butters. A little tip: make sure you decarboxylate the kief if you’re going to cook with it to make sure the cannabinoids are activated!
