Tips on Choosing the Right Grinder

When you choose a grinder, you will be overwhelmed with the number of options. Moreover, most of them seem to be identical or have only minor differences. Nevertheless, the prices vary greatly. Are grinders really so important that you have to spend days choosing the right one?

The market of cannabis paraphernalia is growing bigger and bigger. There are many accessories that can make the lives of stoners easier. Grinders are a must-have item in the home of every weed enthusiast. Dozens of companies claim that their grinders are the best of the best. While some of them are really worth our attention, others are not of high quality. Browsing through hundreds of models is a frustrating process. Besides, as it is with all other goods, expensive stuff does not necessarily mean quality stuff.

Cannabis-related products are hitting the shelves left and right. Pipes and grinders, delicious edibles and flavored topicals—they are all ready to satisfy every need and taste. However, there are still plenty of products that can surprise even the experienced pot enthusiasts.

How do we buy the right grinder if the companies are not telling the whole truth, and the price is not always a significant factor? Some stoners just give up and buy the first thing they see or completely ignore the appliance.

However, grinders are an important part of your smoking experience. Breaking the buds exposes a larger surface, which helps THC vaporize better. Thus, grinding makes your smoke more potent.

Besides, ground flowers are more flavorful—the exposed terpenes increase the aroma and improve the taste. However, you should be careful as the smoke might be a little harsher because of the higher density.

Moreover, ground buds fill the bowl easier. Small-sized particles simply form a more consistent product. Cutting buds with other accessories will produce larger pieces thus making the mass non-consistent and not as richly flavored.

The last but not the least important benefit of grinders is the easier adjustment of the consumed dose. For people who are meticulous about the dosage, this factor is the most crucial of them all.

Now, when we know why this 420 device is a must-have, let us take a closer look at it.

Any self-respecting stoner has to have some cannabis accessories that are completely necessary for their hobby. Smoking weed can become even better if you have all of them at home.

The essential feature that differs various grinders is the material. They can be made of anything. However, it does not mean that all of them are equally good. For example, glass is good for pipes but bad for grinders. The most common choices are aluminum and acryl. Such grinders are cheap but stable. The only downside is that in time, they wear off, and little pieces of metal chip off and get into your weed.

The best materials to look for are titanium, polyethylene, and ceramics. They are safer and better suited for long-term use. Of course, they are expensive. The manufacturers often use a cheap base and cover it with a thin film of the high-quality material.

Many experienced cannabis users argue that grinding the herb before consuming it has a great deal of advantages. It can easily increase the surface area of the flower, providing a more effective burn. But what are the differences between various types of herbal grinders? How to choose the one that will suit you the most?

Speaking about materials, the good ones are always more pricey. However, this rule does little good in terms of style. They are so varied that you can buy grinders of any shape you can think of. Nonetheless, it does not mean that colorful and pretentious models will serve you better. The appearance is just a matter of personal preference—it has nothing to do with quality.

Still, some features should be paid attention to. For example, electric grinders are a new trend. While you can do the same work yourself, they are very useful for people with motor-control difficulties.

Various features make these gadgets specialized in different functions. Two-piece grinders are better used indoors when you have a tray to dump the material on. Three-piece grinders can be used anywhere because they eliminate the need for a tray. Four-piece grinders are often used for vaporizers because they have a special shield at the bottom that collects the trichomes that break off.

The main part of the grinder are the teeth. They also differ in form and configuration.

Pin-shaped teeth are used to grind thyme and sage. Pyramid-shaped teeth work with cannabis buds producing small pieces and providing a consistent texture. They are mostly put in expensive grinders. Diamond-shaped teeth work similarly to the previous category, but the grind is not as consistent. They operate like scissors.

When choosing the size of the grinder, look for those that feel the most comfortable in your hands.
