No matter how much you love your cannabis, you’ve likely experienced a moment or two when rolling a pre-roll or packing a bowl was a bit of a cumbersome and time-consuming process. Luckily, there’s a product that can help! Grinders are just the thing for turning cannabis buds into a fine, almost powder-like form, making them much easier to work with for all your consuming purposes. Plus, grinders help you use your cannabis efficiently by burning it quickly and evenly.
How to Use a Grinder
Grinders are pretty darn easy to use. Simply remove the top lid and place your buds on the grinder’s teeth. (You may need to break up larger buds to make it fit easily.)
Close the lid back on top and begin rotating. The teeth will break the buds down into smaller pieces. You can stop once all of those pieces fall through the openings between the teeth.
Next, unscrew the chamber with the teeth. Your grounded weed will be inside. When you finish grinding it all, load up your favorite piece and inhale. Easy peasy!
Most grinders will have an extra chamber in the bottom below the screen. This chamber collects the tiny trichomes, called kief, that fall off during the grinding process. When you pick apart the buds by hand, kief’s fine texture means it often gets lost.
The more cannabis you grind, the more catchers these catchers will start to fill with kief. This powder is a concentrated version of the plant’s THC. Consider kief the icing to a bowl’s cake.
Sprinkle a little kief on top of your packed cannabis for a more intense euphoria. Or you could save it up and use it for hash or edibles.
