Kief, sometimes known as Keef or pollen, are actually the crystalline resin glands formed on the tips of the plant’s trichomes. These resin glands contain the bulk of the terpenes and cannabinoids, so it’s essentially the most potent part of the plant. Since the glands are attached to the tips of the trichomes, they often fall off and collect in containers where cannabis is stored. It looks like weed dust, and that’s pretty much what it is; super strong weed dust.

Most stoners out there collect their blonde kief in one way or another, but hardly any stoners out there are using it for the multitude of ways it can actually be used. Well, this powerfully concentrated form of cannabis can be used in more ways than just smoking it.
For those of you who don’t know, blonde kief is a concentrated form of cannabis. Blonde Kief is effectively made by removing the trichomes from the cannabis flowers. Trichromes are the shiny, crystal-like balls that form on the leaves of the cannabis plant, and these crystals contain the highest concentration of cannabinoids compared to any other part of the cannabis plant. By removing these glands from the actual plant material, what you are left with is much stronger than buds.
In terms of extracting your own, most smokers will have a grinder that collects kief at the bottom (like the SLX Non Stick Pocket Grinder), and after a couple of months, there is usually enough kief to smoke. However, there are other methods such as using dry ice if you’re looking to have a large amount and fast, but this requires a lot of buds.
So now that you know how to make or acquire your kief, now it’s time to learn how to use it! Here are 6 amazing ways you can use your kief.
You can smoke your kief, which is what a lot of stoners do. However, this method can be a little messy because of how powdery kief is. So if you’re looking to smoke a joint with your kief, it’s probably even better if you mix it with your buds. This gives something for the kief to sit snugly inside. The best method is to sandwich your kief between your buds and wrap it up in a paper.
Smoking kief in a pipe is another popular way to consume your kief. However, it’s really important that you are careful how much you use because it is much more potent than your buds. So if your bowl is big, pack it conservatively. Also, kief manages to stay alight and burning in the pipe basically until it’s burned all the way through, so keep toking away. It doesn’t stop burning the same way that flowers do, so you’ll lose it if you don’t pay attention. Kief also tastes great when vaped in something like the Grizzly Eclipse Vaporizer.
It is entirely possible to create a kind of hash brick with your kief, although it doesn’t provide the best quality hash. For this you’ll need a piece of parchment paper and a hair straightener (or an iron). All you have to do is fold the parchment paper, put the kief inside and press it between the hot plates of the hair straightener. Alternatively you can put an iron over the top. Don’t hold it for so long that the paper burns, but for enough time for the kief to compress into a block and for it to heat a little. Now that it has been heated (otherwise known as decarboxylated), you can use this hash to make tea or sprinkle it on your pizza as seasoning.
