Herb grinders are used to grind herbs and for rolling and loading a hand pipe or packing a bong. The tool contains several chambers and is available in multiple parts. You must first crush and cut your herb into smaller pieces for the best results.
A good grinder is essential as it will spare you the painstaking process of selecting some parts of the herb by hand and make your cannabis last longer. Multi-piece grinders are divided into several pieces to create space for storing.
Why You Need Dry Herb Grinder
Though you can pull apart herbs with your hands, it will give you inconsistent results. When smoking your dried herb, the uneven sizes will result in inconsistent burning. And, when it comes to edibles, it will potentially make it more difficult to extract the flavor and other elements of your dried herbs.
However, a herb grinder ensures quick and more even results. It will help keep the herbs in one place and prevent your skin's natural oils from tainting the flavor.
Parts of a Dry Herb Grinder
Dry herb grinders, usually made of metal or wood, are more popular than plastic tools. There are models with 2-pieces (compartments), 3-tiers, and 4-pieces.
The main part of the grinder comprises a lid and a grinding chamber where the angled blades are twisted back and forth into the flower. Holes in 3-tiered grinders allow the herb to pass through another chamber, making scooping easier. Moreover, 4-piece models filter and collect the powder at the grinder's base.
How to Use the Grinder
Follow these steps to prepare your buds for smoking:
- Hold your flower close and look for stems. Pull the herb from the stem and break it into smaller pieces (half-inch long). Mash the herb between the blades and make sure not to block the circular magnet in the center of the grinding chamber.
- Place the grinder’s lid to push the buds and turn it in a back and forth twisting motion. You don’t need to do this if you’re using a 2-piece grinder.
- If you have a 3-piece grinder, the third chamber will collect the goods. You can now twist it open.
