What Is Kief?
At its core, kief is the collection of trichomes – the resin glands found on the hemp plant. These glands are responsible for producing the cannabinoids and terpenes that give cannabis its unique effects and flavors. When separated from the flower, these trichomes appear as a powder-like substance, commonly referred to as kief or pollen.
Horn Creek’s dedication to quality production shines through in our kief. Obtained using a meticulous 151-micron mesh tumbler over a 12-hour cycle, our kief retains its pure, golden glory. Proudly organically grown, our Special Sauce kief has even been recognized at the 2020 Oregon Grower’s Cup.
CBD vs. CBG vs. THC Kief: The Spectrum of Kief
- CBD Kief: Derived from hemp flowers, CBD kief is rich in CBD and low in THC. It offers relaxation without the “high” associated with THC. Many users appreciate its potential therapeutic benefits, such as anxiety relief and pain reduction.
- CBG Kief: CBG or cannabigerol is less known than CBD or THC. However, it’s often dubbed the “mother cannabinoid” as it’s a precursor to both CBD and THC. Kief rich in CBG offers potential anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects.
- THC Kief: This kief, coming from marijuana flowers, is high in THC, producing the euphoric effects marijuana is known for. It’s perfect for those seeking potent psychoactive experiences.

Should I smoke my kief?
Absolutely! Sprinkle some on your bowl or add it to a joint or blunt for a richer experience. But remember, a little goes a long way!
How long does kief last?
Stored properly in a cool, dark place, kief can last 1-2 years without significant loss of potency. It’s best to keep it in an airtight container to maintain its freshness. Age and exposure to oxygen may change the consistency and cannabinoid value of the kief.
Is kief more potent than dabs?
Both are highly potent, but dabs, being a concentrated form of cannabis/hemp extract, usually have higher cannabinoid content than kief. However, kief offers a more natural and unprocessed experience.
Does CBD kief get you high?
CBD Kief will not get you high, but due to its concentrated nature, kief is indeed potent. However, the exact effects depend on the hemp flower cultivar it’s derived from.
