How to use a grinder
Most grinders are made from either metal or plastic, and are made up of at least two distinct parts – the upper chamber and the lower chamber. Once you place your herb inside, you twist and rotate the two pieces in opposite directions from one another. The teeth on the upper part of the chamber then slice and grind up any dry herb inside. You will want to make sure you clean your grinder every few weeks to months in order to keep your teeth sharp.
Four piece grinders are also available, which usually include a screen and an additional chamber meant to capture those tiny potent granules that fall off of your herbs during the grinding process known as “kief” or “pollen”. All of our grinders feature unique and innovative designs.
Advantages of using a grinder
If you don’t have a grinder, using one will make it difficult to go back. Not only do they significantly improve the experience and speed up the smoking process, but they help simplify it as well.
Whenever you pull your herbs apart with your hands, plant matter can stick to your fingers – thus reducing its potency. While this detriment may be minimal, you’ll never have to worry about it when using a grinder.
When you use an herb grinder, everything can be packed tighter when it makes its way into your rolling papers or bowl. Ground up herb is exposed to less oxygen, meaning it will burn less as you inhale, leading to a “smoother hit” that many enjoy.
