Kief is the name commonly used to describe the harvested sticky, powder-like crystals found on marijuana flower that can produce a more intense high. It is the accumulation of the luminous resin trichomes that form on the leaves and buds of marijuana. Trichomes are tiny, bulbous glands that protrude from the surface of the buds and leaves of late-stage cannabis plants. These trichomes can be removed from the plant material, producing kief, a powerfully concentrated form of cannabis.
Collected and used for thousands of years as a way to consume cannabis, kief or keef is essentially a highly concentrated form of cannabis that collects the most potent part of the marijuana flower as a lightly colored, cannabinoid filled powder. Because it packs a much bigger level of cannabinoids than cannabis flower, kief an ideal option if you’re looking to increase your cannabinoid intake or just want a versatile cannabis product that you can use a few different ways – such as sprinkling it onto your bowl of cannabis, sprinkling it into your joint, making hash, pressing rosin, or basically just adding potency to almost any method of cannabis consumption altogether!
