Whether you’re a full-time vaper, spend your days deep in the bong, or carry a joint behind both ears wherever you go, there’s one thing every stoner needs in their weed kit – a grinder.
If you’re looking to elevate your smoking experience, nne of the easiest ways to improve your sessions is by using freshly ground up weed. But this doesn’t mean tearing it apart with your hands or slicing it up with a pair of scissors (though this does work well enough if you find yourself without a grinder and really want to smoke some sativa joints).
To put it simply, grinders can make or break your smoking sessions. A grinder with plastic teeth might not perform as well and mash your weed instead of producing a fine and even consistency. In fact, chances are you’ve probably had poorly ground weed in the past that has led to uneven burning and ultimately wasted weed.
So, if you’re ready to elevate your stoner arsenal, keep on reading to learn about grinders and check out our blog on rolling the best joints.
Smoother Burn and Better High
If you want to start rolling your own joints to pack your favorite strains instead of buying pre-rolls, you’re going to need a grinder. You can find grinders at most smoke shops, your local dispensaries, and online from several websites.
If you’re a beginner, here are two grinders to start off on.
When grinding your weed, you’ll want to check for a fine consistency. The more herb that’s exposed, the smoother your joints will rip and the more flavor you’ll get in every puff. A quality weed grinder will cut through your product and slice through stems for the best smoking experience and no wasted product.
Something you’ll notice right away is that grinders are great because they speed up the process of breaking up your cannabis before packing bowls. A few twists from the grinder and you’ll be ready to start stuffing or rolling.
Before you know it, your highs will be sending you to space and back with the most potent highs and smooth flavors. Ah, the perks of freshly ground weed.
Grinders can include a variety of different features such as kief catchers, magnets, and big grinding chambers to grind more weed in less time. For the most part, metal grinders are seen as some of the most well-made cannabis grinders because of their durability and consistency.
Their metal teeth/blades help you grind you weed with ease without jamming every twist. Remember you are buying a grinder to grind your weed, not crush it, so almost every single time it is better to go with heavy-duty material like titanium, for your grinder.
The teeth will stay sharp and be reliable with every twist and turn of your favorite cannabis strains.
Catching Moon Dust With Every Twist
A lot of people believe that the best feature of any grinder is the kief catcher. In fact, some would argue that there isn’t a point in having a grinder if it doesn’t include one.
Now for the most part, grinders have three uses in your smoking routine: grinding up your weed, doubling up as storage, and catching your precious pollen/nectar (kief).
A kief catcher is a component in grinders that have 3 or more parts to their body. It is the bottom chamber that sits below the mesh screen that gathers the potent kief that falls off your bud during grinding. They’re also known as dry sift or pollen.
These crystal formations known as kief are potent and deliver an elevated high and good times with the buddies. You can add them to your joints, blunts, or if you have enough you keep even smoke a bowl of pure kief!
Most grinders with kief catchers also come with a small kief scoop to help make it easier to add to a bowl or to make edibles so don’t worry about losing any of your precious crystals.
Eventually when you grind enough you’ll have a sticky grinder because of the kief resin making it more difficult to grind your weed. Luckily, just like bongs, grinders are very easy to clean. In fact, all you need is alcohol.
After grinding an eighth of one of my favorite hybrid strains, Trainwreck, I had enough kief to get creative. Now, I’ve never had any kief of my own so at first, I didn’t know what to do with it but then I remembered I still had some leftover Raw cones from one of the Raw packs.
I decided to pack my joints with this special combination. Here’s what I used.
- Raw cones for easy filling, small size
- Trainwreck Kief
- Trainwreck Shake
- Full Spectrum CBD Concentrate
- Space Case Grinder
I later smoked one of the special joints with my buddies and to put it simply, we had a mind-bending afternoon.
Get ready for 100% happiness with this potent combination and an uplifting energy to keep you going. If you’re a gym goer and are feeling sore, Trainwreck will plow right through it and get you back up to speed. Just one hit is all it will take to relax you and to melt the stress and tension of the week.
We decided to make the most of it and went out with some buddies at a local bar. So if you’re looking for a cannabis strain to help curb the anxiety and give you a potent high, give this combination a try.
If you’re looking for another way to smoke your weed other than vaping and pre-rolls, get yourself a grinder to maximize your possibilities. You’ll be smoking potent bowls, smoother joints, and add to your stoner experience. Just like the vape high is different from the bong high and the joint high, freshly ground weed just hits better. It’s more potent and delivers the smoothest puffs from your favorite Indica cannabis strains.
