What is “Kief Hash”?
Kief hashish is simply the collection of dried trichomes. Typically, cured buds & other resinous plant material are placed on screens, which are then agitated in some way such as shaking them back and forth. The dried trichomes then fall through a series of sieves or screens. The refined kief is collected and finally pressed into various shapes. In the case of this product, it has been pressed into a round, hardened disc commonly referred to as a “puck”.

NOTE: I do not identify dispensaries in my reviews. However, if you want to know the shop that's offering this pricing, I will provide it to anyone who requests it.
Delivery Method(s) Used: To smoke it on its own, I use a clean glass pipe with a stainless steel screen. Most of the time I use an X-Acto knife to slice a piece off and make a salad (i.e., place on top of packed bowl).
Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 52.50%; THC .93%; CBDa 0%; CBD .22% (LK Pure Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Characteristics: This puck of kief hash was pristine. The specific shade of light sand color indicated to my experienced eyes a high quality, well-sieved kief that was also expertly pressed. It burned evenly but not too fast. This puck kept its shape well; it wasn’t brittle or too soft.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this product, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this sample.
In its intact state, this kief hash was surprisingly aromatic, emitting some serious sweet berry and that unique Haze pungency. When I put flame to it on its own, it tasted exactly like its lineage: sweet berries and pungent Haze with spicy hints. Like the aromas, the flavors were also very bold for a kief hash. High marks for lively terpenes.
TIP: To learn all about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: The effects were classic Blue Dream. I was quickly hit with a potent cerebral wave. Instant euphoria. Worries and stress disappear. Can get a little heady in higher doses. A physical calm sets in after a little while. The rest of the experience is a relaxing, balance high that makes you feel good all over.
Duration of Effects: 1.5-2 hours, depending on dose
May Help With: Helped with mood & insomnia. May also help with PTSD, stress, anxiety, depression, mild-to-moderate aches and pains, appetite (and more)
This was an outstanding example of kief hashish. The terpenes, potency (52% THC is on the high end for a kief hash) and press quality were all very impressive within the context of a kief hash.
