how to make a kief screen

Do you have any experience collecting kief? Let us know some of your favorite methods in the comments below!
A quality grinder need not be expensive, budtenders and head shop workers will usually have a good tip on which work best.
Ask your budtender to help select well-sugared strains in order to maximize yield. Also, wearing gloves, or using an object to manipulate the plant matter is ideal to minimize oil residue from your hands (which will also make the kief clump up). Happy kief collecting!
This method is ideal for medium-sized batches of plant matter. One downside to using silk screens is that they can tear easily from stems. It’s best to be gentle and work slowly, picking out any jagged pieces that might tear. Metal screens are available in this size as well, but can be harder to come by.

This is essentially the freezing method with a screen and collector attached to it and is ideal for collecting some of the highest quality kief, as the process can be repeated with finer and finer screens bags to get only the head of the trichome (ensuring the least possible amount of plant matter). It works well for large batches, a it’s possible to get quality hash out of things like trim and clippings this way as well.
For the ultimate kief collection method, we start introducing a little science. THC is not water soluble, meaning it won’t dissolve in water, and colder trichomes become more brittle and fall off with greater ease. This means that any method of freezing won’t disturb the THC, while making the kief easier to agitate and collect. Dry ice alone, or (or even your trusty freezer) can be used to cool the buds to a point where the kief can be shaken off in a jar or container. Freezing prior to using the coin and grinder trick will also improve yields.
Silk screens can help you collect a pretty decent amount of kief in a short amount of time. To do so, you’ll need to take a trip to your local art store to grab a silk screen, the very same you might buy to DIY a few band t-shirts. For this method, a basin or clean surface is set to catch the kief underneath (a pane of glass or mirror works well) and then ground or shredded cannabis plant material is gently run over the screen to separate out the kief.
H ere at PotGuide, we recently covered some of the ways to put your kief collection to good use, and we figured that it might be a good time to go over some of the ways to collect that kief in the first place. In general, there are three ways of collecting kief without the use of solvents: shake it off, freeze it off, or force through a screen to be caught in some form of reservoir. The best collection methods combine these methods to capture as many trichomes as possible. Take a look below to learn more and start collecting that precious kief!

A pollen sifter is also known as a Kief Sifter, Shaker Box, Kief Box, or Chicken Pox
Those trichomes have all the chemicals such as THC, CBD, and the terpenes that give it its flavor and scent. At room temperature they crystallize and can fall off. So shaking weed across the screen will cause trichomes to get knocked off and fall into the bottom chamber where they can be collected. This is super potent!
the Green Goddess pine sifter box has a holder in the underside of the lid for holding rolling papers and a rolling jig to help you roll easier. It’s got a 100 micron screen and a bottom catch chamber for collecting the pollen. the bottom chamber is lined in tempered glass to make it easy to scrape up the kiefy goodness!
These are boxes that you toss your weed into and they contain a screen that’s used to collect the trichomes of the cannabis plant after shaking it up a bit

Cannabis has little crystals called “trichomes” that sit on the plant surface.
Green Goddess has 3 different sizes – a mini for up to 1/4 ounce of herb; a medium sized one for 2-3 times as much; and then our larger pine sifter box – not actually sure how much it holds, but quite a bit more than an ounce.
So think of this stuff as your bonus for shaking up your herb. After a few shaking sessions you’ll accumulate enough pollen to sprinkle over your next bowl or joint, or bone,.
Our mini and mid-sized boxes come in hardwood (walnut) and bamboo. The larger one is made out of pine.
