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.
The heft and feel of good solid metal grinders is hard to match. 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 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.
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. Then again, most grinders are very easy to clean and can become squeak-free again.
Some grinders have sharpened, curved teeth or beveled teeth supposedly to produce smoother and more accurate cuts of cannabis and simply for easier operation. 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.
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 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. 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.
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. 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.
