If you are just getting into smoking or vaping cannabis, you are going to need a grinder for your weed. Grinding your dry herb is essential because it will dramatically improve your experience with cannabis. Some vaporizers require a grinder that can produce coarse weed, while other vaporizers may require your weed grinder to produce finely ground cannabis. Cannabis grinders also ensure that your dry herb is maximized, leaving little to no waste. We spend a lot of money on weed, so you may as well save what you can.... AM I Right?
THE ADVANTAGES OF GRINDING YOUR CANNABIS
No longer are the days of pulling weed apart with your bare hands, spreading all the amazing THC and KIEF around on the surrounding surfaces, instead of into your bong, joint or vaporizer. I personally started using weed grinders because I was tired of using scissors and getting uneven cuts of cannabis. Dry Herb grinders also make getting your session ready, way faster. All you have to do is put some weed into the sharp teeth of the grinder, twist it a few times and BAM, you have some quickly ground up cannabis to vape or smoke. When you grind your cannabis well, you unlock the true potency of the cannabis plant into your sessions. My favourite part of having a weed grinder is that I can transport small amounts of cannabis with me when I'm on the go. Therefore, my session is ready to go instantly.
WHAT'S A WEED GRINDER MADE FROM?
Mostly all weed grinders are made from plastic or aluminum. They usually range from two piece to four piece cannabis grinder sets. They all have an upper and lower portion to the grinder. The upper chamber has a variety of sharp teeth that move opposite each other when the grinder is twisted to slice and grind up any cannabis that’s been placed inside. The best manual grinders are circular because it's easier for your hands to twist and collect.
If you are getting a two or three piece cannabis grinder, you are doing it because you want to either store your weed or save your KIEF. Each brand is different in terms of the shape and number of the teeth.
The mesh screen is there to catch the KIEF that comes off the weed during the grinding process. This is stored separately and can be used to top up a bong hit, sprinkle in with a joint or vaporized.
There are many different sizes of grinders. The size doesn’t change the functionality of the grinders. You need to consider how you will use it. Do you usually consume small amounts of cannabis or do you prefer to grind up a lot of weed at once?
WHAT IS KIEF AND WHAT ARE KIEF NETS?
If you are just getting into cannabis or haven't used a cannabis grinder before, you may not be familiar with what KIEF is. Kief is essentially the sticky crystals that fall off the cannabis when you bust it apart. Many true cannabis connoisseurs love saving KIEF and repurposing it for different methods of consumption. If you want to store your kief and use it as a topper in your sessions, you'll definitely need to get a weed grinder that has a kief catcher at the bottom of it.
The three and four chamber weed grinders have this added screen which will allow the kief crystals to gather in a small compartment.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF WEED GRINDERS
Anytime you go into a head shop, dispensary or vaporizer store, you probably see a lot of different types of cannabis grinders. Most are made from metal, wood, or acrylic. But which one is the best and why?
METAL WEED GRINDERS
Metal or Aluminum cannabis grinders often have the sharpest teeth. This tends to make these grinders the most efficient grinders. Aluminum weed grinders are easy to clean and maintain vs acrylic weed grinders. Metal cannabis grinders are usually very portable and can be carried around with you in public.
What we love most about metal cannabis grinders is that they usually twist the smoothest, This is very important as you don't want lots of friction when you are grinding your cannabis. The stainless steel and aluminum make of the cannabis grinder, help keep maintaining it easy. If you hear squeaking in your weed grinder, stay away!
ACRYLIC CANNABIS GRINDERS
You've probably got one of the grinders for free before. Acrylic grinders are by far the most cost-effective weed grinders out there. They tend to work really well at first but the quality quickly fades. Acrylic cannabis grinders also ten to reduce your cannabis to a fine powder, which isn't always ideal. Surprisingly there is one good one and it comes with the Mighty Vaporizer.
ELECTRIC WEED GRINDERS
Honestly, I love using electric grinders for my cannabis. These grinders really do all the heavy lifting for you. In college, I primarily relied on my electric grinder to give me amazing weed to pack my bong hits with. It's really simple to use, put your cannabis in, hit a button and the cannabis is ready. It's like the MAGIC BULLET, but for weed.
WOODEN CANNABIS GRINDERS
These grinders are straight up just nice to look at and use. They are for someone with style and grace, that's for sure.
