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. 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 necessity for those who smoke and vape.
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 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. Perhaps the only problem of a circular grinder is its tendency to be sticky or to clog after repeated use.
When more herb goes into a grinder — especially flower, which is particularly resinous — it becomes more easily 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. Plenty of manufacturers claim that these grinding tooth designs control clogging and sticking, unlike standard pegs, which even sometimes promotes the wrapping of plant matter around them.
One-Chamber or Three-Chamber?
The question when it comes to elite quality grinders made for cannabis specifically, is whether to kief or not to kief. Kief is normally comprised of about 30-60% THC, making it a potent addition to ground cannabis. It may also be smoked alone for quick relief, potency and flavor.
So many manually operated hand grinders are available today, and the most basic and inexpensive are single-chamber grinders. 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.
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.
