What are grinders?

Grinders are one of the essential tools that every smoker needs . Grinders help break down your flower and keep it fine . Without grinders, we would have to break the flower apart by hand; which can actually make your flower lose potency because your fingertips will absorb the oils. Grinders usually have 2 to 5 parts which are listed below.

How to use a grinder?

  • To start grinding your flower , first remove the top lid and place about half a gram or less of your flower around the grinder, anything placed in the middle will not be grinded. Once started it will be slightly tough but once it’s effortless to turn the top, your flower should be completely grinded.
  • 2-Part Grinder: Splits in two with a lid containing teeth on top and bottom allowing you to grind flower. Just open the grinder and dump the contents. These grinders are great for dry herb devices, since the finer the grind the better the vaporization.
  • 3-Part Grinder: Comes with a lid covered in teeth for grinding, a mid section with teeth and holes so your flower falls through. Finally a hollowed bottom to catch the grinded flower. These grinders are used for big loads since they usually have a huge base.
  • 4-Part Grinder: Carries all the functions of a 3-Part Grinder with an added section holding a screen that will separate the grinded herbs from the kief ( Cannabis Crystals).
  • 5-Part Grinder: Follows the same functions as a 4-Part Grinder with the added section holding a smaller screen for catching even smaller Kief. This grinder is the best for those trying to save every bit of their flower.

What are grinders made of?

Grinders can be made with either a hard plastic or strong metals such as stainless steel, aluminium, and space grade materials.
