Learning The “Secrets” of Equipment

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. 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 have particularly small teeth or pegs that grind the herb as the two pieces (or the two top pieces, for those who are using a three-piece or four-piece model) of the grinder are turned in opposing directions. Perhaps the only problem of a circular grinder is its tendency to be sticky or to clog after repeated use.

As more cannabis gets through a grinder — particularly resinous flower – the more easily it resists twisting. Grinders usually start to squeak when compacted cannabis hampers the two grinding plates’ action. Then again, most grinders are very easy to clean and can become 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.

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 normally comprised of about 30-60% THC, making it a potent addition to ground cannabis. It can be smoked alone too for potency, flavor and fast relief.

There are several types of hand grinders today which are manually operated, single-chamber grinders being the cheapest and most straightforward. These grinders come in puck-like forms in a range of sizes, from around 1.5-2 two inches in diameter up to nearly four inches for big 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. More expensive kiefing grinders of this kind let user to catch dry kief, or trichomes and trichome heads, from the herb, which may be smoked or vaped later, or used to make small amount of rosin.
