This post will be fairly shorter than most others. However, this is a question I have been asked many times before and have never really discussed it. It is something so simple, yet oftentimes overlooked. Should you put kief on the inside of a joint, or on the outside? That is the question we are answering here.
If you already put kief on your joints, do you add it on the inside or the outside, and why?
Reasons To Put It Inside
There are a few reasons why you would want to put kief on the inside of your joint (or even blunt). There are even a few ways to do it.
One reason for putting kief on the inside is that you don’t risk losing any kief. On the outside, some of the kief you put on the joint will fall off. But on the inside, this cannot happen. It’s impossible, unless you have holes in your joint. In that case, you might need to relearn how to roll.
To add kief to the inside of your joint, simply sprinkle it before you add in weed, after, or even both. However you decide to do it will work. Just be mindful of not putting kief towards the end of the joint where you hit it, as that may cause you to inhale some kief. But remember, the more kief you add the more potent your joint will be.
Another reason why adding kief to the inside of a joint is better than outside is due to the fact that it is fairly easier and does not require an additional ingredient. That additional ingredient is needed for putting kief on the outside, as discussed below.
Reasons To Put It Outside
Of course, there are also reasons why you may prefer to put your kief on the outside of a joint (or blunt). For one, you can actually see it after the joint is rolled, making it more photogenic. If you’re posting your joint on Instagram, it’ll look much better with the kief on the outside.
In addition to making your joint look good, kief on the outside may also increase the overall potency of your joint, even more than on the inside would. Now, this does depend on that “additional ingredient” and what you choose to use. You need to use something that will stick the kief to the joint. You don’t want to use just anything, however. For example, using glue to keep the kief on the joint is a bad idea, since inhaling glue can be very dangerous.
For sticking kief to a joint, there are a few choices. One option is to use honey. Honey makes a joint sweet and even makes it burn slower.
A second option, and possibly a more desirable one, is to use hash oil. This is a great option, if it is available. If you can get some hash oil for your joint, then I suggest you do. That is, if you wish for your joint to become much more potent. Not only will the kief add to your joint’s potency, but hash oil can also, and by a large amount.
Cannabis moon rocks are made in a very similar fashion. Buds are soaked in hash oil, then covered with kief. This is what gives moon rocks their huge increase in potency compared to regular buds. The same can go for your joint if you choose this method.
Which Is Better?
So, after giving the details, which is better? You may already be able to answer this question for yourself. After all, it does depend on the person and their desires. Some do not want their joint to be much more potent. Some do not like the messy style of adding kief on the outside. But sometimes, on the outside it looks and burns better. Therefore, it all depends.
Personally, I say switch it up. Try one joint with kief on the inside, and one with it on the outside. Try a joint with honey, then one with hash oil. Do this to figure out your favorite. Experimenting with cannabis can be very fun, especially since it always results in getting high.
Putting kief on the inside of a joint could be better than outside due to the fact that you cannot lose any of the kief. If you hate losing kief or you simply have a limited amount, you may not like putting it on the outside. But it’s safe on the inside, where it is warm and snug. In addition, inside does not require that “additional ingredient”.
On the contrary, kief on the outside of a joint may possibly be better because it looks much better, if you are into that. Also, if you do it right, you can’t lose that much kief. So if it really doesn’t matter to you, then it doesn’t matter if you choose inside or out. That is as long as you have some honey or hash oil.
Now can you go back to the top of this post and answer the question: Team Kief on Inside or Team Kief on Outside? Which do you prefer? That’s all for this post. Thanks for reading!
