What Is Kief?
To put Kief in coffee, you first have to know what Kief actually is. Kief is just the crystallized powdery substance that can be found on weed. Kief is a combination of trichomes and small plant matter that have all gathered together to create what we call Kief.
Kief by itself is unable to get you high in its raw, natural state. You are not able to just add Kief to your coffee and get a high from that, as it will not work. There is a lot of misinformation floating around on other blogs, so we want to set the record straight. The temperature of a coffee will not be high enough to decarb your Kief.
You can normally find Kief at the bottom of your grinders or in the cracks of the grinders. This is because the Kief will fall through the cracks and start to bundle up; once you are able to collect enough Kief, you can use it in a number of different ways. The way we will be using it is by putting it into the coffee.
How To Make Kief Coffee
Now, let’s get into how to make Kief infused coffee. You are able to add your favorite plant to your favorite drink to make one of the most powerful and exciting drinks on the planet. There are two main ways you are able to put Kief into your coffees, you can either put Kief directly into the cup, and the second method is by adding cannabis-infused milk into your coffee.
You will need a few things to make infused coffee; the materials include
- Coffee Cup
The recipe is just for one cup of coffee, and you are able to add more depending on the amount of coffee you want and how strong you want your coffee to be.
Option 1 – Decarb Your Kief
Here’s a guide on how to decarb your Kief so you can add it easily to your coffee. To do this, firstly place your Kief on a flat layer of aluminum paper on a baking tray and set your oven on 230 F for around 45 minutes to an hour. You’ll need to make sure to be monitoring the Kief so it doesn’t burn at all; otherwise, your coffee is not going to taste good at all. Then, when the Kief turns brown, it’s time to take it out. Stirring it will also help prevent the Kief from burning.
Now that your Kief has been decarbed, it has now activated the chemicals inside, and it is ready to be used. This includes making Kief infused coffee. To get the maximum benefit, we would also put in a little milk or creamer in the coffee. Now, just make your coffee, put the Kief inside with some milk, and you will have a coffee with a little extra flavor!
Option 2 – Infusion
There are a few problems when it comes to using option one because the Kief itself will remain the drink, which can sometimes lead to a gritty and hard to drink coffee with chunks of Kief inside, and this can wreck the whole experience of Kief for you. The second method is a better-tasting way and will make it a better experience to put Kief in your coffee.
To do this, the basic method is putting Kief inside of a fatty liquid (such as milk or butter) for a long period of time at a low temperature, and then the THC will start to release from the plant, and it will start to decarb. You have to add Kief to milk; then, you can add the milk into your coffee.
Does Kief In Coffee Get You High?
The answer to this question is, if the Kief has been decarbed, adding Kief to your coffee can definitely get you high.
When consuming this coffee, it will be like smoking Kief and is the same as taking weed as an edible. The heat from the coffee will not be enough to decard the Kief, so you have to use one of the above methods to decard the Kief.
