Weed smokes better when it's broken up the chemicals are actually all along thesurface of the plant so burning all the surface area is key.
A weed grinder alsoknown as an herb grinder or a pollen sifter is a device that grinds your weedinto finer and more uniform tiny little bits.
And if you're not from New Englandout there, a grinder is another name for what do you call those like sub sandwiches.
Whywould you call a sandwich a grinder unless you grind it into your mouth toeat it because it's so delicious.
This makes your bud burn more evenlytherefore maximizing efficiency but making you high.
You don't want a littlepellet of cannabis plant that gets charcoaled on the outside but still intactand unburned on the inside so you break it up.
You can do with your fingers butit leaves your fingers smelling like weed and the results are very uneven.
That's actually a good smell.
And once it's all broken and ground upinto tiny little bits, it's a lot easier to pack into a dugout or joint your pipe oranything that you're going to smoke out of into from.
It a in dugout in baseballis that we're like the players come up and out of? Ya.
You could pack a lot ofweed in one of those dugouts.
This Green Goddess one is a four piecegrinder and the top piece is actually a magnetic spinning lid and underneath yougot the teeth and the second piece forms the main grinding chamber and has teethextending upward so the weed is trapped between the top and the bottom teeth andthis is how you grind.
And there's small holes for the weed to fall into we putthat back down and this piece you spin that off and through those holes getsground up into those smaller particles.
And this could be used to store it.
Inthis chamber there's a screen on the bottom so it allows the pollen or thekief fall through which actually is the finer particles that are on the surfaceof the weed to fall through into the next chamber which unscrews and as youcan see this is just a little tool that comes with it and a little sifting tool.
This is the under part of the screen and from thatlittle bit of weed that I just ground there's a little bit of that pollen thatfell through the screen this filtered out extra fine pollen from the weed isbasically the finish product but what's so important aboutthis stuff? It's all about the trichomes! Cannabis has little crystals calledtrichomes that sit on the plant surface.
These trichomes have all the chemicalsTHC CBD and the terpenes that give weed its flavor and scent.
Ah! Those crystalscan fall through the screen to the bottom chamber where you can collect allthe fallen pollen.
This is super potent.
It's the caviar of weed! After a fewgrinding sessions you'll have enough of this bonus dusty pollen weed to sprinkleover into your next bowl joint, bone, blunt or anything you want.
Grinderscome in a few common varieties.
Pyramid shape teeth are the old-school design.
They don't really work that well.
Wood grinders, which are crap, tend to haveteeth that are basically just vertical pins.
They don't do that good of a job.
The modern grinder tends to be cut out of aluminum and their footprint is likea diamond shape if you look straight down at it from the top.
So as the weed comes in contact with the length of the teeth, it's a sharp pointthat slices up the weed.
That's the best model.
Now if you're looking for agrinder, one thing to pay attention to is the number of holes and the size ofthose holes because that's important.
A lot of grinders overload their chamberwith too many small teeth and therefore there's not as much negative space leftfor the holes.
They're either too small or there are too few or even worse bothand if there is not enough holes or the holes are too small after you're donegrinding it's not going to allow the weed to fall through the holes into thatother chamber therefore it's going to stay in that initial chamber with theteeth and keep going around and around and jamming the thing up.
So if you'relooking for a good grinder that grinds up weed really well, well check out ourwebsite and the link in the description below.
Green Goddess Supply has reallyhigh quality stuff including their grinders.
I do like this four piecegrinder.
I use it to grind and store my weed but we also sell these noveltygrinders the Pokeball and the Deathstar grinder, which are three piece grinders.
They have holes and then a screen so as it grinds the fine particles of weedfall into the chamber.
I like the Deathstar I'm a Star Wars fan so it's my votefor that.
