Kief or keef (from Arabic: كيف kayf, meaning well-being or pleasure[1]) refers to the loose, dried resin glands (or trichomes) of cannabis which may accumulate on containers, in grinders, or be removed with a kiefing screen or sieve. The term originates from the Egyptian dialect of Arabic, where the word can be translated as "being buzzed" or "liking to get high". It is sometimes erroneously called pollen or crystal. Kief contains a much higher concentration of desired psychoactive ingredients, primarily THC, than ordinary preparations of cannabis buds from which it is derived.
