Unless you happen to be insanely gifted, no one can pick up skill on the first try. It takes time, dedication, and a commitment to do better. This applies to anything be it gardening, making coffee, baking, and so on. For the context of this article, we are talking about herb grinders. A grinder is a necessary part of building a good joint, so if you do not have one, you are missing out on a lot of benefits, but that is for another day. If you are interested in buying a grinder but don’t know where to start, you can keep on reading this article, and for design options, you can view them here.
- You have to choose what material your grinder should be. The ideal grinder material is durable enough to withstand the grinding process, and it should also be made of non-toxic materials. So, you want to sure that material does not affect your weed negatively. Acrylic, metal, and wood are common choices of materials for grinders. Metal is the cheaper option of the three and acrylic is usually sought after.
- You can also choose between an electric and a manual grinder. With the manual grinder, you can use it easily and is recommended if you do not smoke large amounts of weed. Electric grinders can grind a larger volume of cannabis buds at a time. The only issue with this grinder is that it won’t function unless it is fed a certain amount of cannabis.
- The number of compartments in your grinder is very important. Two-piece grinders will make one compartment, and this is the cheaper option. The more compartments there are in your grinder, the finer and more evenly ground the result. Some grinders come with catching trays to catch the kief and pollen that tend to slip through the grinding process, this results in a more potent mix.
