THE IMPORTANCE OF KIEF IN INFUSED BLUNTS + PRE-ROLLS

When it comes to infusing prerolled joints and prerolled blunts, there are many different formulas for enhancing THC content. One common way that people boost THC is by adding kief to their flower and twisting up something potent.

If you’re new to weed, you may not be so familiar with what kief is and how it benefits your smoking experience.

Here’s what you should know about kief, how it’s collected, and why it’s so good for infused joints and blunts.

WHAT IS KIEF?

Look at a properly grown cannabis plant and you’ll see a flurry of milky white crystals on the flowers. Those crystals are called trichomes.

Kief is the version of those trichomes that fall off of agitated cannabis buds and into the bottom of your grinder. They typically have a brownish color to them, due to the oxidation that happens once those trichomes are separated from the cannabis plant matter.

In a sense, you can consider kief unprocessed cannabis hash oil, due to the fact that cannabis concentrates are made from extracted trichomes.

Kief is also a solventless concentrate. It is also known as dry sift and/or pollen.

TRICHOMES

Trichomes are the most important part of the cannabis plant, in terms of consumption. They are the resinous plant glands that house all of the chemical compounds that matter, i.e the plant’s cannabinoids, terpenes, etc. Simply put, trichomes and their chemical content are the reason we get high and also the reason weed tastes so good.

CANNABINOIDS

Cannabinoids are a class of cannabis compounds that interact with receptors in the human body to produce certain effects from cannabis.

THC is the most well-known and abundant of these cannabinoids. It is responsible for the psychoactive effects we feel after consuming cannabis flower, concentrates, edibles, and weed vape pens. Other known cannabinoids include CBD, CBG, and CBN.

TERPENES

Also located inside those plant resin glands are terpenes, which contribute to the big time flavor you taste when smoking weed.

Terpenes are the aromatic compounds that produce a plant’s aroma and flavor. They make Gelato smell and taste like sweet, earthy, ice cream. Examples of terpenes include pinene, limonene, myrcene, and caryophyllene.

WHY IS KIEF GOOD FOR INFUSED JOINTS AND BLUNTS?

Kief is excellent for infusing joints and blunts for three reasons: Potency, length of high, and smoking experience.

Unfortunately, though terpenes are responsible for cannabis’ flavors, kief usually does not have a good taste on its own, and will create a harsh smoking experience. It is best to add it to flower and/or other concentrates for a both potent and flavorful smoke.

POTENCY

Kief is great for increasing the potency of your bowls, joints, and blunts. It is the highest concentration of cannabinoids, thus it can create a big boom in the high versus flower alone.

That is why kief is so good for infused joints and blunts. Because people buy those hoping to get absolutely smacked off the weed. Kief helps guarantee that kind of high.

LENGTH OF EFFECTS

The more potent your cannabis products, the longer your high will last. That’s another reason people buy infused joints, because it takes less smoking to get higher for longer.

They’re a great choice for when you build up a high THC tolerance after your body gets used to frequent cannabis use.

SMOKING EXPERIENCE

Sometimes you need a heavy smoking experience, and kief is an excellent vehicle for taking you there.

Oftentimes, people will buy cannabis in hopes of having a potent, relaxing, sedative type of experience that provides a couch-locking experience.

With its high concentration of THC, prerolls that add kief to their infusion are a pretty reliable choice for this experience.

HOW IS KIEF COLLECTED?

Kief can be collected a few different ways. Obviously, you can collect it with a grinder that has a kief catcher at the bottom; but there’s also pollen boxes, silk screens, and hashish drums.

GRINDERS

Grinders help you break down flower without getting your hands all sticky and dirty. There are multiple types of grinders, categorized by their numbers of chambers. To collect kief, you want to purchase four chamber grinder with a kief catcher.

Pro tip: to increase how much kief you collect in your grinder, add a coin to the flower chamber, and shake the grinder as you grind your bud.

POLLEN BOXES

Pollen boxes (also called kief boxes and pollen sifter boxes) are basically wooden boxes with sifting screens inside that your flower will rub against and kief will collect in a large amount.

SILK KIEF SCREENS

Think about screen printing screens, but for collecting weed crystals. You put your flower on the screen and then push it back and forth to collect kief.

HASHISH DRUMS

If you’re trying to collect a large batch of kief, like on a commercial level, the best method is to use hashish drums. There are machines that you can buy for the purpose, or you can make your own hashish drum with a bucket, a silk screen, and a cover.

Once you put your flower inside the bucket on top of the screen, you beat the side of the bucket with sticks or whatever you want, and the kief will fall to the bottom.

In the end, regardless of how the kief is collected, the fact remains that it is an excellent way to supercharge your cannabis flower, so buying prerolled joints and blunts that contain kief is an excellent decision.
