Trichomes are the source of marijuana’s flavor and they contain the highest concentrations of cannabinoids. The tiny crystalline structures that cover some marijuana strains often fall off and people are always doing their best to collect them.

The collection of trichomes is referred to as kief. Kief is popularly used for cooking or adding a frosty topping to your bowls and joints. If you have a nice grinder, you will notice it has a bottom compartment that is designed to help you collect the potent kief that falls from your ground up buds.

Have a look at these 5 strains that contain a lot of kief. Leafly gave us a hand in finding the best strains for kief.
