Do you want a stronger high? Why don't you just take a closer look at the weed you already have. Al weed buds have kief on them. Kief (or keef, dry sift, kif) contain the cannabinoids and terpenes.
So, what is kief exactly?
You know trichomes, right? Well kief are the formations that are stuck atop trichomes. Although weed without kief does contain cannabinoids, it is certain that it has greater levels of THC than other parts of the weed plant.
How to gather kief
How do you actually gather the thousands of little trichome heads without actually plucking them off one by one? It's rather quite simple... by using a three-chamber herb grinder. As you grind your bud, the crystals will collect at the bottom chamber of the grinder. It may take a while and plenty of buds before you actually have enough kief to smoke, but it sure is worth the wait.
Higher percentage THC
We may like to believe that the THC rich trichomes in cannabis were meant for us to relish but they actually have a practical use. Cannabis relies on them to deter enemies like herbivores. When animals eat the buds it causes them to have a psychoactive experience. Thus, it causes disorientation and prevents them from eating the entire plant. The odor that the trichomes produce attract pollinating insects and deters pests.
Use a silk screening to collect loads of kief
If you can't get enough of kief you should think of using silk screening to get a load of kief. However you will need a whole lot of bud to do so. You can even make your own sifters using layered screens made with wooden borders. If you use 4 layers of mesh screen you will be left with the purest kief on the bottom screen.
Watch out kids, kief is strong stuff!
If you are a pipe smoker, be conservative when loading your pipe. Keep in mind that kief is much stronger than normal bud. Also, kief continues to stay lit up, so keep toking from the start, because it keeps on going. Kief is not like normal bud that goes out after a while.
There are a lot of ways to smoke kief. The good news for those of you that want to minimize the health risks of smoking but still want to get a good high, using kief is a great option. Because it is high in THC, just a bit of it in a joint will get you high like a kite. Be sure to put the kief in between the buds, so the powdery kief won't fall out.Happy toking my friends!
