Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em

What is Kief?

In Morocco, kief is a bowl of unpressed hash mixed with tobacco smoked out of a “sebsi” pipe. However, to most marijuana consumers, tobacco plays no part in the product we call kief. So what is kief? Outside of Morocco, kief is more commonly used to refer to the most potent form of unprocessed cannabis. It looks like fine sticky powder that can be brown, yellow or green in color.

There are many ways to use the kief we know and love but mixing it with tobacco is not one of them. You can use a vaporizer, papers, bowls, bongs or use it to make other marijuana products.

When looking at a nug, the kief is the sticky crystal coating that sticks to your fingers.

How Does Modern Marijuana Compare to Marijuana From the 1970s?

It’s fairly evident and logical that during the last several decades of scientific advancements in growing had a fierce impact on cannabis potency worldwide, but to what extent did the strength of buds actually increase?

California produced over 13.5 million pounds of marijuana in 2016

California has been long known as the go-to state for cannabis consumers and a sort of a Mecca for cannabis growers, due to its perfect pot-growing weather conditions and rich soil. It is no surprise that the residents of the Golden State grew the most weed in the whole country in 2016.

It’s no secret that growing pot is a common thing in California, but knowing just how much weed is being grown every year would probably make Snoop Dogg choke.

The US Drug Enforcement Agency reported that state-registered marijuana growers in California grew well over 13.5 million pounds of marijuana, more than any year before.

The Feds are growing antsy

The plot thickens and DEA is actually more interested in the second part of that information — which is that only 2.5 million pounds of the whole yearly crop ended up in California.
