Dry sift, also called kief, is the least expensive type of concentrate to produce. But one of the hardest to make. It is made by sifting cannabis through screens that vary in size. Depending on how large or small the trichomes are.
It can be used on its own, mixed with tobacco, or mixed with cannabis buds for additional potency.
Characterized by its soft-sand texture and appearance. It is not considered an extract, because the trichome glands that make up dry sift are mechanically removed from the plant material without the use of solvents.
One of the biggest advantages is that, it’s made through a solventless process, which keeps the entire trichome gland in tact and yields a full-spectrum concentrate.
Press a 5-star or 6-star kief into a dabbable hash by placing it in between two pieces of paper. Pressing with your hand.
Three- to 4-star dry sift is great for sprinkling on a bowl of flower. Or lacing in a joint or blunt.
Making dry sift requires the following equipment;
A clean glass table.
A sift box or sift screens.
Cannabis trim or cured flower.
A utility blade, credit card, or plastic ID card for scraping the dry sift together.
