Cannabis is becoming more popular than ever, and for good reason. Some of the most exciting implications of our growing industry are new cannabis technologies. One of our favorite new products, called kief shaker tins, is one of the best-kept secrets in the world of weed. Here’s a full breakdown of them, including how they work & where to buy!
What is Kief?
Kief is a “concentrated” form of cannabis that looks like green dust and contains high levels of valuable compounds like THC, terpenes & other cannabinoids. Kief comes from trichomes, which have a crystal-like appearance. When these trichomes dry, they break off and turn into kief (which you’ll typically find at the bottom of your grinder).
How to use kief?
You can add kief to any joint, bowl, bong pack (or use to make edibles & extracts). Here are some ideas from Way of Leaf on how to use your kief.
What is a Kief Shaker Tin?
A kief shaker tin is a metal container that stores cannabis while collecting the kief that naturally dusts off your bud. The kief shaker tin enables you to simply shake the container of buds to dust them with the gathered kief. This simplifies the storage and use of loose kief.
What does it look like?
A kief shaker tin is a jar with an inner rim that stands higher than most other cannabis containers. This allows the tin to catch the kief and lets you easily shake the kief back onto the cannabis buds.
What’s the point?
The kief shaker tin handles the collecting and dusting for you. Instead of losing the most potent part of your buds to the bottom of your grinder, you can simply shake the tin to have your buds will be dusted with a fresh coat of potent trichomes!
What’s the verdict?
Pretty simply – if you smoke cannabis, you need a kief shaker tin. If you have a kief catcher on your grinder (like most people do) you’re already accumulating kief just by storing and grinding your bud. This new device allows you to actually use it. With a simple shake, you can enjoy a light dusting of kief to all of your newly ground bud.
Another note: If you don’t shake the tin, you can use it for storage only – keeping your bud away from the fallen kief particles.
