What to do with Extra CBD Kief?

 What is Kief?

Kief is the term for the trichomes (resinous glands) that fall off of cannabis flowers. These glandular hairs are where cannabinoids and terpenes are produced, making them extremely potent. When collected, kief can be used to make hash, pressed into cakes, or sprinkled on top of marijuana or hemp flower before smoking.

What is Hemp Kief?

Hemp kief is kief that has been collected from hemp flowers. Hemp is a type of cannabis plant that contains high levels of CBD and low levels of THC.

What is CBD Kief?

CBD kief is simply hemp kief that has a high concentration of cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is known for its therapeutic properties. When smoked, CBD kief will not produce the “high” associated with marijuana.

CBD Kief vs CBD Oil

CBD kief and CBD oil are both derived from the cannabis plant. However, they are two very different products. CBD kief is made from the trichomes of the cannabis plant, while CBD oil is made from the flowers, leaves, and stalks. CBD kief is more potent than CBD oil, as it contains a higher concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes.
CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant using a solvent like CO2 or ethanol. The resulting oil is then diluted with a carrier oil like coconut oil or hemp seed oil to make a tincture. At Sir Hemp Co we use only USDA Organic MCT oil in our tinctures. CBD oil can be used sublingually, in edibles, or topically.
Kief is made by separating the trichomes from the rest of the plant material. This can be done using a screen or sieve.

How to Collect CBD Kief

If you’re smoking hemp flower, it’s likely that you’ll end up with some kief in your grinder. You can also collect kief by sifting dried cannabis buds through a screen. The size of the screen will determine how much kief you collect. A finer screen will yield more kief, while a coarser screen will allow more plant matter through. You can usually find these online sold as a ‘kief catcher‘.
Once you’ve collected your kief, it can be stored in a jar or other airtight container. Keep it in a cool, dark dry place to prevent degradation.

How to Use CBD Kief

There are many ways to use CBD kief. It can be sprinkled on top of hemp flower before smoking, used to make hash, or pressed into cakes. If you have extra kief, there are a few things you can do with it.
One option is to sprinkle it on top of your favorite food or beverage. This will add a boost of flavor and may also help increase the effects of the CBD. Another option is to add it to a joint or blunt before smoking. This will help to improve the taste and increase the potency of your smoke. You can also add it to a bowl of flower or vape it on its own.
If you’re sprinkle it on hemp flower, be sure to grind the buds first. This will help the kief to stick and burn more evenly. You can also mix kief crystals with your favorite hemp flower before rolling a joint, blunt, or hemp cigarette for an extra kick of CBD.
To make hash, simply press the keif into cakes using a flat surface and a little pressure. You can then smoke the hash or use it in edibles.
Pressing kief into cakes is also a great way to store it for later use. Be sure to wrap the cakes tightly in parchment paper or another airtight material.
When using CBD kief in edibles, it’s important to remember that it is very potent. Start with a small amount and increase as needed. Be sure to label any edibles containing kief so that they are not consumed by someone who doesn’t want to experience the effects of CBD.
If you are considering using CBD kief be sure to check with your health care practitioners, especially if you are taking prescription medications and/or have a serious medical condition.
