Why Cannabis Grinders Are a Wise Investment

Cannabis burns more smoothly if it is ground, meaning the flame (smoking) and hot air (vaping) can pass freely and evenly through it. 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 must for smokers and vapers.

It’s hard to match good solid metal grinders’ heft and feel. Most fans of the culture like to grind their weed with the feeling of cold aluminum or steel in their hands. Starting at $20, grinders are made in various types and sizes for all budgets and preferences.

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. 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. 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.

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.

There are several types of hand grinders today which are manually operated, single-chamber grinders being the cheapest and most straightforward. Such grinders are available in puck-like forms in many different sizes, from those with a diameter of about 1.5 or two inches to almost four inches for large 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. 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.
