The users of cannabis generally use joints, canutes or blunts to consume marijuana, nevertheless, some experienced users, also like to enter the world of the concentrated ones of cannabis. If you are within this last group, this post will interest you.

Here we will speak to you of how to gather the kief, when offering simple advices or recommendations to you with which you will be able to gather it.

1) Use dried buds

Unlike other concentrates, Kief does not require hard work, or too much preparation, nor does it even need any kind of solvent. For easy picking, look for dried buds that have dried and cured properly. Also, use good quality plants.

2) Use a triple chamber grinder

As you know in the cannabis market, there are grinders, which vary in size, shape, color and material with which they are manufactured (wood, metal, plastic, among others).

When it comes to collecting kief, the ideal for these cases are the multi-chamber grinders (at least 3).  These instruments are very easy to use, so you don’t have to worry. All you need to do is grind your plants, just as you would regularly, and the kief will end up in the ground. The lower chamber will be filled with trichomes.

The disadvantage of this method is the time factor, as you have to wait to get a decent amount of kief.

3) Screen printing fabric

You can also opt for the use of a silk screen printing fabric, to do this, rub a dry and crumbled bud on a piece of fabric, this must be tightened on a wooden frame.

You must rub the marijuana of smooth form on the screen, exerting a slight pressure with the purpose of pushing the heads of trichomes, which, as they go falling you will have to gather it in a clean container. Look for a screen print of between 80 and 270 LPI (lines per inch).


Kief can be used in a variety of ways, but remember that the concentrates are usually quite potent, so go easy.
