A grinder is the most inexpensive addition you can make to your smoking kit to elevate your smoking experience. Freshly ground cannabis does create a very different vibe during your smoking session. In simpler words, grinders actually have the ability to make or break your smoking session.
How? Well, that is what we will be answering today.
For a Smoother and Better High
Grinders are essential as they speed up the whole process of breaking the cannabis before you begin to roll. All it takes is a couple of twists of the grinder and you end up with the best raw material possible for smoking or vaping. The best part about freshly ground weed remains the potent high accompanied by smooth flavors.
It is believed that a large part of the potency is due to the trichomes. These small, hairlike structures on a fresh bud are the reason behind the frosty aesthetic of cannabis. When you grind something by hand, most of these trichomes tend to get stuck in your fingers instead of the flower thus dulling the potency of the strain.
Features To Look Out For
There is no point in a grinder if you can’t catch kief. Kief is the pollen goodness that is found on the flower of the cannabis plant. There are three primary uses for any grinder- Grinding cannabis, storage, and catching the kief.
If you have a grinder that has more than 3 parts to it, then the bottom chamber, under the mesh screen is what you are looking for. This is where the potent kief is collected when you grind the bud. You can add them to your blunts and joints to give an extra kick.
As you keep grinding, you will see the build-up of kief around your grinder which would be sticky in nature. But it is pretty easy to clean up a grinder, all you need is some alcohol and a cloth.
This is the most basic kind of grinder available on the market. There are two pieces that come together to form one cohesive unit. Inside each piece, you will find that there are sharp teeth that help shred the buds. We prefer the steel variant but they are also available in plastic and wood varieties.
This has the kief tray that is a delight to all users. Gravity along with some basic design sensibilities helps make a four-part grinder a great investment. There are drilled holes at the bottom of the grinding chamber, allowing bits of bud to fall down to the collection chamber. On the floor there is also a stiff fine screen, that is where the kief is collected. These are made primarily of metal.
