Kief is the term for the accumulated trichomes, or resin glands, sifted from cannabis flowers through a mesh screen or sieve. Trichomes secrete a sticky resin containing the terpenes and cannabinoids that give cannabis its unique qualities. As concentrated resin glands, kief is a potent form of cannabis. It can be sprinkled on top of joints and blunts, infused into food, or pressed into hash.
How to use kief
Sprinkle it on top of a bowl, joint, blunt, or into a hookah
Sprinkling a generous dusting of kief on the top of a packed bowl, joint, or blunt can dramatically increase the potency, making for a more intense and longer-lasting high. Adding kief will also cause the cannabis to burn slower, extending the time it takes to smoke — perfect if you enjoy long smoke sessions with friends. If you’re a fan of smoking shisha out of a hookah, you can sprinkle it on top of the tobacco before adding the hot coals.
