Herb grinder types
In the good old days, our hippie forefathers just took a whole bud and shoved it in their pipes. The wisest among them would get their hands dirty, using their fingers to break bud up or scissors to cut and grind in pestle and mortar fashion. Although this seemed like the best and easiest option, the reality was messy, wasteful, and didn’t give a lot of opportunity for mixing and to ensure smooth grinding. Luckily, we're past the stone age of grinding and now herb grinders brands are widely available and come in a variety of sizes, styles and materials including metal, wood, acrylic, stone, magnetic, rotary, crank and electric herb grinders, you don’t need to be a licensed health care provider to understand the benefits! Some have additional features like kief catchers, mesh kief screens, extra large grinding chambers and clear windows for easy viewing.

This means that potent oils and pollen aren’t left sticking to your fingers and instead get packed into your joint just as it should be.

How does a herb grinder work?
One of the most underrated and most necessary smoking accessories to date, an herb grinder is an absolute gem of a device that will make your stoner life a whole lot easier. There are so many different types of grinders available but essentially they all do the same thing: grind TF out of some bud so you can add some finely grounded marijuana to a bowl or joint to enjoy. Herb grinders have sharp teeth that literally grind together when you twist them back and forth, which is the act of grinding your weed. Twist as little or as much as you want, and the more you grind your weed the finer it will be, making for a smooth and glorious smoke session.
How to clean herb grinder?
At some point with consistent use of herb grinders, a lot of sticky build-up can accrue and it might affect the performance of an herb grinder. Every now and then you will see that an herb grinder becomes way too sticky and pretty hard to use, which is a sign that it is time to clean your herb grinders. So how do you clean herb grinders and maintain their condition? It is important to know how to properly clean herb grinders so that you can properly care for your cannabis accessories to last you for years to come. Here is a quick step-by-step guide on how to clean herb grinders.
1. Empty kief catcher
Many herb grinders these days have a kief catcher which is featured on the bottom of a grinder. Kief will build up over time, and only a little amount is needed to elevate a joint or bowl as it has high concentrations of terpenes and cannabinoids to get you high in the clouds. Any herb grinder with at least three pieces or more will typically have a kief catcher feature, and the more pieces an herb grinder has the more features it will usually have.
You will want to empty the kief catcher and make sure you remove all the good stuff before you begin the cleaning process. If you do not, the kief will be ruined so make sure you do not skip this step!
2. Put an herb grinder in the freezer
To make things easiest on you, placing an herb grinder in the freezer will help to loosen up the sticky material that is coated on the teeth of a grinder. This can also help to preserve the kief that is built up but did not detach when shaken out. Place herb grinders in the freezer for 30 minutes to one hour and you should be golden.
3. Wash with water and dry
No one likes the isopropyl alcohol and salt taste, so it is best to wash out the grinder thoroughly with water. It is best to lay out herb grinders to dry for a few hours to remove the alcohol smell by airing out herb grinders naturally. Wiping water off with a towel will get the job done as well but the harsh smell might still be present.
Grinders should always be cared for regularly as it completely sets the tone for a smoke sesh. Have you ever shown up to a smoke sesh where there were no herb grinders in sight and you had to struggle to get some decently grounded weed? It is an absolute nightmare compared to using herb grinders that can grind your weed in less than a minute. Giving herb grinders a good cleaning once every month at the very least can make all the difference in the quality of shred it delivers. Herb grinders might not have seemed serious to you before but now that you think about it, it is the foundation of all epic smoke sessions!
