Ask Ed: Grow Tip – Trash to Stash

You have harvested, manicured, cured and dried the weed – now it is time to prepare the leftovers: The leaves, trim, and tiny buds that were removed during preparation. You can find many recipes for oil making, marijuana cooking oil and butter online, but before using the material for that you might try making some kief!

One easy method is to stretch a silk scarf over a bowl tightly and then rub the marijuana material against it. Just rub it a little bit for the finest quality, as you continue to rub, more glands come off but they become mixed with vegetative material. The glands that fall to the bottom of the bowl can be smoked as is or pressed into hashish. Kief is one of my personal favorites!
