Why You Should Invest in a Cannabis Grinder

Cannabis burns more smoothly if it is ground, meaning the flame (smoking) and hot air (vaping) can pass freely and evenly through it. As well, this helps keep the stems and leaf matter – which damage taste and provide nearly no plan resin – from scorching. That makes weed grinders a must for smokers and vapers.

It’s hard to match good solid metal grinders’ heft and feel. A lot of fans of the culture like the feeling of cold aluminum or steel against their hands as they grind their herb. Grinders, which start at $20, are made in many different types and sizes to suit each preference and budget.

Hand grinders come with tiny teeth or pegs intended for grinding the herb while both pieces – or both top pieces for three or four-piece models – of the grinder are twisted in reverse directions. About the only issue with a circular grinder is that they tend to clog or become sticky with use.

The more herb passes through a grinder — especially flower, which is highly resinous — the faster it becomes resistant to twisting. Typically, grinders start to squeak when compacted cannabis impedes the action of the two grinding plates. The good news is most grinders are easy to clean and turn squeak-free again.

Some grinders have curved, sharpened or beveled teeth, which are purported to bring smoother, more accurate cannabis cuts and make operation easier. A lot of manufacturers say such grinding tooth designs prevent sticking and clogging, as opposed to standard pegs, which tend to encourage plant matter to surround them.

Single-Chamber vs.

To kief or not to kief is the usual question when it comes to premium quality grinders that are made particularly for cannabis. Kief is generally composed of around 30 to 60 percent THC, which means it can be a powerful addition to a joint or bowl of ground cannabis. It may also be smoked alone for quick relief, potency and flavor.

So many manually operated hand grinders are available today, and the most basic and inexpensive are single-chamber grinders. They can be purchased in puck-like forms in an entire range of sizes, from about 1.5 inches in diameter to nearly four inches for the bigger models.

Plenty of three-chamber and four-chamber grinders have a special, extremely fine screen that can capture the trichomes of the bud as most plant matter is kept at bay. In a spare chamber inside the grinder, this kief is stored. Pricier kiefing grinders of this type allow users to catch dry kief, or trichomes and trichome heads, from the herb which can be smoked or vaped afterwards, or used to produce small rosin quantities.
