Can you still get high from bud that you've extracted kief/thc from?

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by JakeMader, Dec 25, 2012.

  1. There's a lot of methods to extracting kief from your bud that I've seen, but I don't quite get the point of it? If you're extracting kief from your bud, aren't you making your bud less potent? If you're just gonna smoke the kief crystals any ways, shouldn't you just leave them on the bud? So basically I have two questions

    1) What's the point of making an effort to extract kief from the bud if you're just 'gonna smoke both the kief and bud any ways?
    2) Can you still get high off of bud if you've already extracted a bunch of kief from it?

    Thanks :)
     
  2. When you grind the bud, or even store it in a container, kief will naturally fall off of the plant material. You can then collect this and make a wide variety of items, including Butane Honey Oil, Hash Patties, and other things.

    Yes, when you apply sufficient heat to marijuana plant material, something happens to the cannabinoid, known as THCa (which makes up a vast majority of the "THC content" in the plant), called Decarboxylation, which turns the THCa into THC.
     
  3. if you have a high tolerance harvesting the kief from the nug may be a better way to get high gram for gram, I do it often, the yield is good and you can still smoke the weed but its not that great. With a gram of weed can usually get 5 good bong rips of kief which is good and gets me more higher than 2 joints or 3 spliffs I could roll with a G.
     

  4. Is this still the case for vaping the bud? I've always wondered if the loss of trichomes would affect vaping a lot more than say rolling the 'de-kiefed' bud into a joint. Nobody seems to mention the effects of it on vaping really, seeing as a lot of the trichomes are now gone and the plant material isn't burnt.

    I'd like to shove all my weed in a kief box, but if it's gonna mean that I have to smoke the buds afterwards rather than vape them I most probably won't.
     
  5. It will have little effect on the Vaping. The THCa will decarboxylize at the vaping temp of weed. Go ahead and shove all your weed in a kief box, grind the shit, shake that kief out, you'll still be able to vape it afterwards.
     
  6. Great points. A simple question, I grind most of my weed and store it in air tight containers.  If I purchase a kief box, does it pay to push the already ground weed through the kief box?  I'm assuming that the screen size will allow smaller particles to pass through?
