If you’re scratching your head wondering what on earth is kief, you’re not alone. Even the most seasoned pot-smokers aren’t sure what it is – until you remind them. Basically, kief is the stuff at the bottom of the grinder (If you’re still picking your pot apart with your fingers, you’re really missing out). But isn’t it just ground-up seeds and sticks? Oh no, it’s much, much more and we’re going to show you how you can take your pot smoking to the next level with kief.
What is Kief Really?
Kief tends to sound like something you’d find on the menu at an exotic restaurant. Well, that’s kinda close. The strange-looking word kief looks strange to many because it’s not English. It’s Arabic. It means ‘pleasure or intoxication’. Did that just pique your interest? We thought so. Now that we got the name out of the way, let’s turn to the biology of kief. In technical terms, kief is a bulbous formation on the tip of a trichome, which is the resin gland of the cannabis plant. This is the psychoactive part of the plant. See this keeps getting better! Trichomes may get you high, but their purpose is to ward off bunnies and other little critters who want to devour the plant.
What Makes Kief So Great?
Generally speaking, it gets you super high. This is where the action is, so to speak. The kief is spread out in your pot so it is in effect diluted. When you separate it from your flower, you’re getting the whole shebang at once – 100 percent pure psychoactive kief. Yeah.
Where Can I Get Kief?
You can grind your pot and save up your kief, a very fine substance, but it will take a while depending on how much pot you smoke. It’s best to use a four-piece grinder that has a kief chamber where you can easily store up kief and then sprinkle on a packed bowl or along a joint. Other ways to use kief include in edibles, with a bong, a Thai stick, and more. You can even sprinkle some in your coffee or tea for a really fun high. Alternatively, purchase some at All Greens Dispensary, where you can get 1g of either a Sativa or Indica strain of kief for just $25.00 and start experimenting today.
What are the Best Strains for Kief?
To make your own kief, you’ll want to ask for the following strains next time you’re at the marijuana dispensary. These include Chemdog, Sour Diesel, Blue Dream, Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, Fruity Pebbles, Cherry Og, and Kandy Kush.
The Bottom Line
In the end, it doesn’t matter what strain of marijuana you use, you’ll get kief as long as you grind, grind, and grind. Be patient. You won’t get much at first, but over time you’ll see this often overlooked part of the smoking process pile up and up. While you wait for your kief to accumulate, pick up a pack at All Greens Dispensary because there’s nothing like the present.
