Next use a scooper to spead the kief evenly throughout the joint. Then roll your joint and now you have a CBD kief infused joint. For bowls, it's very similar to a joint. Load your bowl full of flower and sprinkle the kief on top.
Kief can also be used to create edibles. To use kief in edibles first pick your favorite recipe. Then it needs to be decarboxylated to active the CBD. The easiest way to do this is to set your kief in the oven. Once your kief is decarboxylated you can now mix it directly into a sauce, butter or any other main ingredient that you are using in your recipe.
How to make your own kief.
One of the most common ways to collect kief is with a grinder. First you want to buy a grinder with a kief catcher built in. Once you have your grinder, start by grinding up your CBD flower or sugar leaf. As you are grinding, the trichomes will fall off and collect in the bottom chamber of the grinder. Once you have finished grinding, simply collect the kief from the bottom of the grinder and you are ready to use it.
Another way to make kief is by using dry ice. Making kief with dry ice is a great way to extract the trichomes from your CBD flower or sugar leaf. First you will need some dry ice and a container to put it in. Then, grind up your CBD flower or sugar leaf and place it in the container. Cover the flower with dry ice and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Then, using a strainer or cheesecloth, strain the flower and dry ice mixture. The trichomes should be left behind in the strainer or cheesecloth. Let the kief sit out and dry for a few hours before using it.
