What Almost No One Knows About Tools

Why Cannabis Grinders Are a Wise Investment

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. As well, this helps in preventing stems and leaf matter – which alter the taste and provide almost no plant resin – from scorching. That makes weed grinders a must for smokers and vapers.

Good solid metal grinders are hard to match by their heft and feel. Most fans of the culture like to grind their weed with the feeling of cold aluminum or steel in their hands. Beginning at $20, grinders come in different types and sizes for each budget and preference.

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. About the only issue with a circular grinder is that they tend to clog or become sticky with 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. 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

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.

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.

So many three-chamber and four-chamber grinders have a special, extremely fine screen made to catch the bud’s trichomes while keeping most plant matter away. In a spare chamber inside the grinder, this kief is stored. 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.
