What is a Pollen Press?


Many people do not know what a pollen press or kief presser is, that is why I wrote this article. There are several purposes for a pollen press and we will explain them throughout this article. Many people will use different methods to collect pollen and kief matter from they’re dried plants and spices. There are two ways that we recommend which typically involve large amounts of plant matter over a 1/4 of an ounce of dried matter. They are a four / five part pollen sifter herb grinder and sifter box. Both can collect the resins and pollens from your spices, which in turn can be used with your pollen press.

Once you collect a substantial enough amount of pollen and resins from your dried herbs then you can carefully collect them from your herb grinder or sifter box and put into your pollen press. Depending on how compacted and the consistency you want you may need to experiment with your kief presser. All are slightly different and you will have to find what you like best. Kief Pressers that are made completely of metal can be slightly heated at a low temperature in your oven for a small amount of time to help aid in the process of compacting and hardening your pollen matter into a small pill shape. Other people prefer to go the opposite route and put them in the freezer or just leave out overnight. We typically recommend leaving the pollen and resin in your pollen press for at least 24 hours as this gives them a chance to bind together and solidify. Slightly shorter or longer may have little effect so its best to find this out based on your own personal experience.

You can find them at your local store, gas station, festival, and most widely available online. We tend to recommend purchasing online as you will probably get a much better price and better selection to choose from. They all essentially do the same thing so it is unlikely that you are going to end up with a bad one, although it is always best to get ones made from anodized aluminum and other metals over plastic since they are much more durable. The inner dowels of the pollen-matter press can also be made from metal or plastic, it is not as important they be metal as the actual body itself. It also may make sense to buy a herb grinder or sifter box to collect the pollen when you purchase the pollen press itself. You will need a herb grinder with a pollen kief sifting screen which is common on four and five part models.

With a little research and shopping around you can find a reasonable priced pollen press which will last you for many years! They tend to be very durable and can be shared with your friends.
