What Is A Weed Grinder?
A grinder does exactly what the name it implies. It grinds stuff up. Our ‘stuff’ is marijuana. When new users start off smoking marijuana they very rarely have a grinder and have to resort to ripping up their buds like a mad man or using scissors and having to meticulously cut every bud into halves and then fourths and so on. This takes up a stupid amount of time that could be spent smoking or playing life-size jenga and the funny thing is, you won’t miss a grinder until A) You’ve seen it in action, or B) You had one and you lost it.
Any kind of grinder whether it is a $80 Titanium Space Case Grinder or a $10 plastic cheap-o acrylic grinder will lessen the amount of time you spend preparing your marijuana for a blunt, joint, or even a bowl. It takes about 10 seconds to grind up marijuana with a grinder, while it takes 3 to 5 minutes for someone to chop up their bud by hand.
In fact, using a grinder is such a necessity that we already wrote a post about how a grinder will speed up your rolling.
When you do buy a grinder, make sure you buy one that comes with a screen for sifting out that sweet, sweet kief. There’s no reason to waste all that time you spend grinding and not getting any amazing kief out of. I would never buy a grinder without a sifter and I don’t know why anyone else would besides saving the $2 for the metal screen that comes with it.
