Why You Should Invest in a Cannabis Grinder
Cannabis burns much a lot more smoothly when ground, making the hot air (for vaping) and flame (for smoking) pass through it more freely and evenly. Also, this helps prevent the scorching of leaf matter and stems that destroy the taste and offer almost zero plant resin. That makes weed grinders a necessity for those who smoke and vape.
Good solid metal grinders are hard to match by their heft and feel. 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 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 problem of a circular grinder is that they can turn sticky and may even clog after repeated use.
When more herb goes into a grinder — especially flower, which is particularly resinous — it becomes more easily resistant to twisting. Grinders usually start to squeak when compacted cannabis hampers the two grinding plates’ action. 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. For a lot of manufacturers, grinding tooth designs can reduce sticking and clogging, as opposed to standard pegs, which can actually make plant matter wrap itself around them.
When it comes to superior quality grinders made specifically for cannabis, the question is usually whether to kief or not to kief. Kief is usually made of some 30 to 60 percent THC, hence it could be a strong addition to a joint or bowl of ground cannabis. It can be smoked alone too for potency, flavor and fast relief.
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.
A lot of three-chamber and four-chamber grinders are made with a special, extremely fine screen that can catch the trichomes of the bud as most plant matter is prevented from getting through. This kief can be stored in a spare chamber inside the grinder. 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.
