Kief, the best part of your herb, all in one place. I’m sure you have ogled over joints coated in kief, but do you know what is even more amazing? A joint made completely out of the stuff. Watch and learn how to make your own amazing kief joint in this video from Explicit.
Step 1: The hardest part
Before you even get started, you will need to amass a decent load of kief. If you don’t have access to loads of bud, then this might be an arduous process of letting it accumulate in your grinder.
Step 2: Getting ready
Once you have about a gram of good kief, the fun can begin. You will need wax paper, a flat iron, a dull knife, and some finely ground herb to top off your creation. Turn on your flat iron to the lowest setting. Get your wax paper and fold it in half, then open it. Put your kief in a pile and use the knife to spread it into a solid, uniform layer.
Step 3: Creating the magic
Like the Rosin extraction technique, you press the flat iron on the kief, heating it. The goal is to make it stick together into a “tortilla” of kief. You will be able to tell which parts have heated by the color change through the wax paper.
Step 4: Roll it up
Once your kief is melted into a solid layer, you will peel the paper away, and gently roll it into a joint. Don’t add anything inside yet. Even small stem pieces can puncture the kief layer at this soft stage.
Step 5: Load up your kief joint
Pinch one end closed and begin to gently load your finely ground herb into the other end. You don’t want to pack tightly, it might compromise airflow. Be careful on handling the joint as it will still be somewhat fragile. Open the closed end with a little pressure, and there you have it! When smoking, don’t ash or press, as you will lose the cherry, and waste kief.
