The word `kif` is derived from Arabic `kayf`meaning well-being or pleasure. Kief, keef or keif is a fine powder made from dried resin glands (trichomes) that are found on the leaves of the cannabis plant. It contains a high concentration of the psychoactive chemical or THC that causes euphoric feelings or opium-like high that can last for hours. Kief is also called crystal or pollen
What To Do With Kief
Kief can be smoked straight rolled in a joint or from a bowl and just remember it will burn up quickly. Most people just sprinkle some kief over their marijuana and roll it or mix it with tobacco. Kief is used for making hash which means pressing kief into little bricks, baking them, pressing again and then let them cool and dry. Then use this for smoking. You can make THC infusions (i.e., butter or oil) and use it for baking cookies, brownies or any food that is cooked with butter or oil. Keif is very potent so you will only need a small amount to get high. The kief seems to smoke best when put on top or in between another medium.
A newer way to consume kief is by using a vaporizer. Add a little kief to the vaporizer compartment with you other leaves and this will take you session to a whole new level. Thanks to the purity of the vaping experience you’ll also get a cleaner smoking experience.
