Kief is a concentrated form of cannabis that is created by removing the resin glands, which are crystals and fuzzy coating from the trichomes that form on the hemp bud. CBD kief looks like powder, but is actually tiny pieces of sticky, crystallized resins.
While kief specifically refers to the bulbous, crystal formation on the tip of a cannabis resin gland, the substance itself is just one part of what is called a trichome, or a “hair.” Extracting kief is simple. Using a three-chamber herb grinder will help you finely grind your cannabis while letting kief crystals fall through a screen and collect in a small compartment at the bottom of the grinder.

Ways to Use CBD Kief
Now you know what CBD kief is, but how do you use it?
Smoking CBD Kief
Kief is more potent than flower buds, so take that into consideration when determining the amount to use. Some kief can contain up to 50% CBD. You can pack a bowl or roll a joint of CBD kief mixed with ground hemp flower. Keep in mind that kief burns quickly and stays lit until it’s completely gone- meaning that if you get distracted, the kief will burn up on its own.
Pack a bowl of bud into your pipe, bong, or another smoking implement. Then, simply sprinkle a little kief on top of the bowl. Try to “corner” the bowl so the kief doesn’t burn up as quickly. Be gentle and careful to light the bowl slowly versus "blazing it" entirely with the lighter flame.
Make Hash from CBD Kief
Hash is one of the oldest forms of refined cannabis. One of the first steps of making hash is extracting kief, as hash is basically just kief that has been heated and pressurized to form a soft ball. Applying heat and pressure to kief changes its composition by rupturing the resin glands. Once the kief ruptured, the overall taste and effects of the product are slightly different
Making CBD Moonrocks from CBD Kief
Moonrocks are top-quality nugs covered in oil and rolled in kief. Moonrocks are relatively easy to make if you have the materials. Gently heat your oil of choice and liberally coat your buds. Sprinkle kief over still-warm buds, or dredge buds in a kief bath using tongs. Let harden, then enjoy them by breaking them up by hand and sprinkling them into your bowl.
Moon Rock Nicknames: Cannabis Caviar, Weed Caviar, Caviar Weed
While the names Moon Rocks, cannabis caviar, weed caviar, and caviar weed are generally used as synonyms, some people refer to marijuana buds sprayed with hash oil without kief as cannabis caviar. So next time, when you hear one of these nicknames, you’ll know that it is a nug that packs a powerful punch.
What is a CBD Hemp Moonrock?
They are known as the strongest and most potent CBD products on the market. CBD moonrocks provide you with a potent serving of cannabinoids without the high effect. This is why people who are wanting or needing to consume high levels of CBD to manage their medical needs prefer CBD moonrocks. Since moonrocks are coated in kief some can contain as high as 50% CBD, while most tinctures contain anywhere from about 5% – 20% CBD depending on where you buy them.
