How strong is it?
Simply put, smoking kief gives a much stronger effect than regular cannabis flowers. Rather than sitting somewhere between 12% and 25% THC, kief (depending on purity) can be up to 70% THC -- this means that you get a much stronger effect from less material smoked. Kief also tends to be strong since it's usually made from a wide range of different strains over time, giving you a varied mix of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in the mix. Many veteran smokers report kief giving them a strong, almost narcotic effect that's perfect for bedtime.
Is it really that simple?
Yep, it really is. Now that you know the correct way to collect, refine, and smoke it, you’re kind of a kief expert -- a kief chief, if you will.
