Cannabis Cheri: Understanding Kief; Guilt-Free Infused Chocolate Pudding


I’ve spent this week working on exciting new upgrades and bonuses for my online Cannabis Cooking for Home Cooks course that are GUARANTEED to boost your reputation as an AMAZING marijuana chef!  Of course, if you are already enrolled in this course,  you will get automatic FREE access to any upgrades like you always do.  If you are not currently a student in this course, stay tuned in a week or two when we launch the new upgrades with a discount offer.  Watch your emails carefully.

Also I welcome a new sponsor to the newsletter, Dr. DabberYou can enter the coupon code CHERI15 for 15% off any order from their website.

I will be doing a review of the versatile Dr. Dabber Switch in a few weeks (I just moved and we are still getting the new video studio set up).  This is one of my personal favorite products cause not only is it an electronic dab rig (meaning no need for a torch), it also vapes flowers. Even my business partner (who regularly pooh-poohs most electronic gadgets) fell in love with The Switch because it truly is the best of both worlds! Dr. Dabber Switch combined dab rig and flower vaporizorWell, truth be told, I didn’t spend the ENTIRE week working.  I took Saturday off (well kind of) and threw a fun and festive pizza party for friends.  Here I am cutting one of the 9 different pizzas I served that night (in addition to my legendary Caesar Salad and Tiramisu, yes they are both actually legendary in my circles LOL).  OK on to the newsletter!

Cannabis Learning -

A well used marijuana grinder filled with kiefDear Cheri,

I am using a small coffee grinder to grind up my cannabis. After I use it for a while I find that a thick layer of…tricomes? builds up in the bottom of the grinder. It’s extremely sticky. What exactly is this stuff and what do I do with it?

What you are seeing is kief, and kief is cannabis gold!

What is kief? You were correct when you surmised trichomes. Kief is the resinous trichomes from the cannabis plant, without a whole lot of plant material attached. The trichomes contain most of the plant’s medicinal properties, meaning the cannabinoids and terpenes.

What can you do with kief? A LOT!
