Cherry Abacus Kief
Our Cherry Abacus Kief was harvested from our one and only Indica-dominant hemp flower strain. If you’re looking for a CBD concentrate that will help you let go of the day’s stresses, look no further.
What is Kief?
At the end of the flowering stage, the hemp plant is covered in resinous, mushroom-shaped glands called trichomes. Trichomes, specifically the bulbous heads, are where CBD, THC, minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavinoids develop.
Kief is the collection of these trichome heads and usually has a golden, sometimes greenish color. More often than not, folks usually first encounter kief at the bottom of multi-chambered cannabis flower grinders. The bottom section under the flower chamber is solid and meant to catch loose trichomes (kief) that break off of the flower.

How We Gather Our Kief
Sunset Lake CBD’s Cherry Abacus Kief is dry-sifted off of our cured hemp flower and dried trimmings through an ultra-fine 125µg (microgram) screen. The result is a sandy-blonde collection of CBD kief.
What Do You Do With Kief?
Cherry Abacus Kief makes the perfect partner to all of Sunset Lake CBD’s smokable flower. The following are a few ways that CBD kief can be enjoyed:
Add to your bowl
Sometimes called “adding toppings” or “crowning” a bowl, adding a pinch of CBD kief to your ground-up hemp flower will increase its potency.
Coat your pre-rolls
It would be counter-intuitive to open up your pre-rolled hemp flower joints to add kief. Instead, folks sometimes wet the outside of their pre-roll and then roll said joint over loose kief.
Add to your edibles
You can also add kief to your edible recipes for an extra kick. Remember to decarboxylate your kief before you do anything else.
Some Sunset Lake CBD customers have even been known to add kief to their morning tea or coffee. In this case, the heat of the beverage *should* be enough to decarboxylate your kief.
Cherry Abacus Terpenes
The top three terpenes tested in our Cherry Abacus are:
- Myrcene – Myrcene is found in mango and hops and has long been used by some cultures as a sedative or muscle relaxant. Myrcene is also responsible for beer’s peppery and balsam aroma.
- alpha-Pinene – Especially aromatic, pinene is a terpene that smells a lot like pine trees. It can be found in a few of our favorites— pine needles, rosemary, basil, and orange peels.
- beta-Caryophyllene – Commonly found in cloves, hops, and rosemary, beta-caryophyllene has the distinctive spiciness of black pepper.
