What is the Best Way to Smoke Kief?
If you’re a heavy smoker, you know that kief takes a couple of weeks to build up depending on how much you smoke or how “frosty” your bud is.
Don’t know what kief is? Kief is basically just tiny little weed trimmings (trichomes) that fall off of the weed once you grind it up. For example, have you ever seen some really good looking nugs with a light up close? You’ll notice there are these tiny “crystals” that sparkle, and that along with some hairs are the trichomes otherwise known as “kief”. So what is the best way to smoke kief?
Different Ways to Smoke Kief
So there’s a couple different ways you could go about this, you could:
- Put it in a joint/blunt
- Put some of it in a fresh bowl
- Heat up a torch and “try” to take a dab
In my opinion, the best and most EFFICIENT way is putting it in a loaded bowl. Now notice I said “loaded bowl”. Kief is extremely small so I wouldn’t recommend putting only kief in a bowl, because it might end up just burning and falling through.
So I think the best way is to just load a regular bowl of weed, and then sprinkle a little kief on top. Using it in a joint/blunt wouldn’t be a bad option, but in most cases you won’t really be able to taste the kief like you would in a bowl. But other than that the effects are pretty much the same.
One important thing to keep in mind when using joints and blunts, put the kief INSIDE the joint. Not outside!
You see this photo? This is what NOT to do. However this for some reason is a very popular way of using the kief but when you do it this way, you’re not really getting the effects of the kief because it’s really just burning. If you put it inside the joint/blunt, it’ll burn the right way an you’ll actually be getting the smoke. Again this photo though is how MILLIONS of people do it out there, so don’t believe me? Try it both ways and you’ll see the difference! (:
The 3rd option is using the kief as a “substitute” for weed which is something you could try, although I wouldn’t recommend this unless you have ALOT of kief. I say that because sometimes it doesn’t work the way you planned simply because it’s not quite the same as wax, so sometimes it just burns instead of melting… and nothing is worse than building up kief just to waste it lol. So make sure you’ve got some leftover if you’re going to go this route.
