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.

The heft and feel of good solid metal grinders is hard to match. Fans of the culture usually love the feeling of cold aluminum or steel in their hands while grinding their herb. Grinders, which start at $20, are made in many different types and sizes to suit each preference and budget.

Hand grinders have small pegs or teeth that are made to grind the herb with the twisting of the two pieces of the grinder (when using a three or four-piece model, the two top pieces. Perhaps the only problem of a circular grinder is its tendency to be sticky or to clog after repeated use.

The more herb passes through a grinder — especially flower, which is highly resinous — the faster it becomes resistant to twisting. Generally, grinders will start to squeak when compacted cannabis gets in the way of the two grinding plates. Most grinders though are very easy to clean and will immediately go back to being squeak-free.

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.

One-Chamber against Three-Chamber

The question when it comes to elite quality grinders made for cannabis specifically, is whether to kief or not to kief. Kief is normally comprised of about 30-60% THC, making it a potent addition to ground cannabis. It may also be smoked alone for quick relief, potency and flavor.

There’s a whole variety of hand grinders available nowadays that are operated manually, with single-chamber grinders being the most basic and least expensive. 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. There is a spare chamber in the grinder where this kief is stored. With more expensive kiefing grinders of this kind, users are able to capture dry kief, or trichomes and trichome heads, which may be later vaped or smoked, or used in creating small quantities of rosin.
