What is Kief and How Is It Collected?
Kief, often referred to as “cannabis pollen,” is a concentrated form of cannabis that consists of the resinous trichomes found on the surface of cannabis flowers. These trichomes contain a plethora of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds responsible for the plant’s unique effects and flavors. To collect kief, you can employ various methods such as:
- Dry Sifting: Using a fine-mesh screen or specialized kief box, dry sifting involves gently shaking or agitating cannabis buds to separate the trichomes from the plant material.
- Pollen Press: A pollen press can be used to compress kief into solid, hash-like discs or pucks for convenient storage and consumption.
