Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Sumptuous and earthy, the kief smells subtly spicy, with an almost peppery quality that provoked a sneeze from us. There’s also a richness, similar to a pine nut and basil pesto, that combines the verdant scent of the terpene profile with something headier that melds the different flavors together and brings them to life.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
When smoked, the kief adds a spicy, subtly herbal flavor to your preferred smoke. It brings an added punch of CBD to traditional cannabis or organic hemp flower in bowls, joints, blunts, and dry herb vapes. We like to consume it with its corresponding hemp flower strain, Elektra, but it adds a flavorful and therapeutic element to just about any smokable product you care to add it to.
The kief is powdery (duh) and clumps together into blobs of pollen. This makes it easy to grab a clump or two (or break off a part of a larger piece) to add to your bowl or roll without losing product in transit. It packs exceedingly well, creating a smooth-burning layer to your bowl.
The kief is a dusty khaki green in color and easy to work with. The “clumps” have a fuzzy appearance and blend easily into any smokable product. However you choose to use it, it adds a powerful dose of CBD to whatever herb you choose to smoke or vape.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
Since this is an inhaled product, it takes effect quickly: we felt relief from pain and anxiety within minutes of our first puff. After about 30 minutes, the effects reached a peak — we felt relaxed, at ease, and experienced a general sense of wellbeing. We like to add a layer to our glass bowls, but it would also work well in a joint or a blunt. Kief vaporizes very well (pack it down carefully to avoid flyaway pollen) and would make a good addition to your dry herb vape bowls.
We experienced the effects for about four hours after smoking, which is comparable to other inhaled forms of CBD. The intensity of the effects depends on how much or how little you use: take more to alleviate severe symptoms and less when you’re looking for a subtle boost of analgesic and anxiolytic properties. As the kief is 21% CBD, it provides a potent dose of CBD and a little goes a long way.
Best used for
As long as you don’t have a condition that prevents you from smoking or vaping CBD, we feel this product has great potential to help a variety of types and severity levels of symptoms. The kief’s high CBD level, complete terpene profile, and versatility make it ideal for a wide variety of consumers.
We like this product especially for pain and anxiety relief, but it would also work well to alleviate chronic inflammation, depression, tension, and other ailments. Since it’s fast-acting, it would be perfect to relieve sudden, severe symptoms. It can also be used to add a supplementary dose of CBD to your daily regimen as you go about your daily activities.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
This product combines the best of both worlds: it’s fast-acting and provides relief that lasts for hours. Naturally, there’s no better accompaniment to CBD kief than a bowl of organic hemp flower (we like Lifter strain from Canna Comforts – shown in image on left). That said, you might benefit from a longer-acting oral CBD product, such as a tincture or a softgel. The kief can help provide you the short-term relief you need, while your oral dose can extend the benefits of CBD all through your day.
If you find yourself in need of localized pain relief, consider using a CBD pain cream like Canna Comforts’ 250 mg CBD cream (shown in image on right) or salt soak to relax tension, relieve muscle pain, and reduce inflammation from the outside while your systemic product(s) work from within.
The kief is 21% CBD and comes in 1 gram jar. At $30.00 per gram, this works out to a per-milligram cost of about $0.14, which is comparable to other concentrated products. The product allows for flexible dosing, letting you take as much or as little as you need to feel relief.
In terms of other products on the market, this kief is fairly unique. Other brands make pure CBD isolate, CBD dabs, and even terpene-infused isolates, but all-natural kief isn’t common. We love the option of adding a potent, effective dose of CBD to any smokable productwe care to.
Like all Canna Comforts products, the Elektra kief meets the standards outlined in our CBD Buyer’s Guide for quality, purity, and potency. Canna Comforts is committed to organically grown, top-shelf hemp flower and other CBD products.
