CBD Kief

Do you know that shimmering sheen of trichomes that cover properly cured hemp buds? Well, the very top of those sticky strands is known as “kief.” Inside these pungent particles, you’ll find incredibly high concentrations of non-psychoactive cannabinoids and terrific-smelling terpenes. For countless years, cannabis enthusiasts separated these resinous bulbs from the rest of the plant to enjoy a pure & potent smoking experience.

To make our premium CBD kief here at Organic CBD Nugs, we carefully break off trichomes from all of our professionally cured hemp strains. The result of all this hard work is a complex blend of healing cannabinoids and terpenes in a fine powder form. With a CBD concentration near 18 percent, our CBD kief is sure to add a blast of calm to your hemp flowers or edibles.

The most popular way to use our CBD kief is to sprinkle it on top of premium hemp flowers before smoking a joint. Trust us, just a bit of this concentrated powder will add serious potency to your smoke session. Alternatively, you could infuse edibles, press hash and rosin, or make moon rocks with our top-shelf CBD kief.

Take your hemp smoking to the next level with Organic CBD Nugs’ bulk CBD kief. Made with trichomes from our tastiest strains, this pure kief powder will elevate your hemp flower.

CBD Kief: Why You Need It In Your Life Immediately

Most cannabis connoisseurs have seen and likely even discussed, in great length, the crystal-like formations that often cover marijuana buds, but not everyone knows what they are called.

This sticky residue that makes flower look so majestic is Kief. It is essentially the resin glands at work to protect the buds from pot-hungry herbivores. But kief is also a product in and of itself. These glands contain large concentrations of terpenes and cannabinoids. Because of this, Keif is one of the most potent components of the cannabis plant.

But is it possible to get CBD kief?

One of the primary reasons that mother nature puts these resins to work is to deter herbivores. The trichomes on the plant protect it by sending the creature on a hardcore psychoactive trip. The animal essentially gets stoned and confused after consuming the crystals, which is supposed to prevent it from moving on to consume the rest of the flower. Of course, this isn’t always a fail-safe shield. But that’s how the system is designed to operate.

Kief is extracted by sifting the crystals through a screen. And since the majority of the plants are THC dominant, it makes sense that kief from these buds is going to be higher in THC than any other compound. But hemp is now a vital part of the medical marijuana market. These plants come with higher levels of CBD and only the smallest traces of the psychoactive.

Yet, extracting CBD-rich kief is not something the average person can do successfully in their home.

“Sifting through the buds of those hemp plants would obviously produce some amazing CBD-rich kief, but you’d also be collecting THC and any other cannabinoids present on the plant,” according to Westword’s Ask a Stoner column. The piece goes on to explain how the extraction process is far more difficult than with cannabis plants.

“The only way to ensure that a concentrate has little to no THC is to separate the cannabinoid from the concentrate during molecular distillation, making it more like wax than kief. Otherwise, manual separation, which is virtually impossible at home, would be needed to remove the THC from the kief. If you want a pure CBD concentrate, try CBD isolate, which comes in crystalline form and can be 99 percent CBD,” the column reads.

CBD isolate is the purest form of cannabidiol. It comes in the form of a white powder, which some law enforcement officers in legal states have mistaken for cocaine. But it is the strongest form of CBD that a person can get his or her hands on.

Experts say this is the go-to product for patients looking to get the most out of their CBD experience.
