Enhance Your High With Kief
You know what kief is (that precious, precious kief), you know how to collect it, and you know that it’s absolutely filled with THC.
What do you do with it?
There are numerous ways to get maximum use out of your treasured stockpile of that unrefined, potent cannabis concentrate.
Here are some of the more popular ways to enhance your high with kief.
Ways to Use Kief
1. Sprinkle some onto your bowl
Usually referred to as, “crowning a bowl,” adding kief to the top of your bowl is the pretty much the most obvious - - and easiest - - of all the ways to use kief. Add a thick blanket of kief to the top of your bowl before hitting that bong, and you’ll get a significantly more intense, longer-lasting high. Be sure to corner the bowl, though, so you get the most out of your enhanced bowl.
2. Add to a joint
Go about rolling a joint like you normally would, but add a healthy serving of kief to the mix as well. Make sure it’s spread evenly throughout the joint, so the extra trichomes stick themselves to the ground cannabis. Talk about a potency boost!
Take this one step further by rolling up a “twax joint.” Coat the outside of the joint with your favorite oil, and then roll the top portion of it in kief.
3. Press out rosin
Rosin is a star player in the cannabis concentrates game, beloved for its cannabinoid preservation and solvent-free extraction. The process of pressing rosin is generally done with cannabis flower, but kief will produce much higher (and more potent!) yields.
4. Make moonrocks
Moonrocks are the golden nuggets of the flower part of the cannabis world. These little rocks are top-shelf nugs that have been covered in top-quality oil, and then rolled in kief. Extremely high in potency, Moonrocks are easily DIYable if you’ve got everything. Heat up your oil, and dip the buds into it. Then, roll those nugs in a thick dusting of kief. Let them dry and harden up, and then break them apart. Pack the pieces into your bowl, spark up, and enjoy your kief-enhanced high! NOTE: Use your hands to break these apart, rather than a grinder. Not only are they super sticky, but grinding them drops the purpose of covering the buds in kief.
5. Enrich cannabutter
Cannabutter is such a versatile product, and kief is one of the easiest (and fastest) ways of increasing its potency. Rather than using flower, using kief during that step of the cannabutter-making process. One tip, though: If you’re decarboxylate the cannabis in an oven or crockpot, you’re going to want to mix your kief with flower in order to get the best results. And remember to strain it all really well, or it won’t exactly be appetizing.
6. Make hash
Out of all the types of refined cannabis, hash is the oldest. It’s old school, and it’s still as popular as ever. Hash is basically kief that’s been heated up and put under immense pressure to make it form a soft, green-brown ball. By being exposed to intense heat and pressure, the composition of the kief transforms its structure by bursting trichomes. Once the kief is ruptured, the overall taste, aromas, and effects of it are different - - and even more potent. This process also darkens the kief’s color and, the more pressure is applied, the darker the hash will become.
7. Add to coffee
This is basically one of the fastest, easiest ways to consume your cannabis. Heat activates the THC in kief, boosting its potency. You only need 1 mg (about a pinch) of kief per 8 oz cup of hot liquid to enhance your high with kief! So, next time you make that cup of joe, why not add a healthy heap of kief to really get your day started?
Bonus: Did you know drinking coffee while smoking weed will make you higher?
