How to Grind Weed for a Perfect Smoking Experience
For cannabis enthusiasts, weed grinding is an essential skill if you want to have a more enjoyable smoking experience. Even though you can burn the weed as is, you wouldn’t want to do that. The difference is way off the charts when you grind them.
A grinder is a perfect addition to your stash of smoke supplies. There are several grinding equipment you can use to kick your experience up several notches. DHS Hub’s high-quality weed grinders are also meant for herbs, tobacco, and other buds. Meanwhile, some enthusiasts who do not have grinders use kitchen tools to powderize their material such as coffee grinders, mortar-and-pestles, cheese graters, or simply a cutting board and knife.
Before we teach you how to grind your weed to perfection, let us discuss first why you should grind your weed.
Grinding your flower is much better than you think. It provides a better smoking experience because it burns more evenly. This means you can expect a fairly consistent pull which results in smoother hits.
Grinders produce kief which is the potent part of the pot plant. Grinding also offers better flower distribution which helps improve the flavor and potency. When the weed is whole, there is a huge possibility that you will end up missing out on some valuable cannabis because of charring. Charring happens because the whole weed burns from the outside in. You wouldn’t want a burnt flavor on your hits.
How to Grind Your Weed to Perfection
Every enthusiast has his own grinding process because once you get used to it, you will eventually have your own pattern or system. Not all flower grinders are the same so you are more likely to get different results. DHS Hub’s grinders come in all shapes and sizes and for beginners who want great consistency, you may choose Shredder Premium Grinder Chrome. It is very easy to use and carry around wherever you wind up.
Remove the stems
First off, you have to remove all the unnecessary excess stems. You have to make sure they are removed before you place the weed flower into the grinder. It won’t cause harm or hurt you if you accidentally placed the bud with excess stem on, but according to many enthusiasts, this affects the overall quality of the cannabis.
The actual grinding process
After trimming the stems, you are now going the place the buds on the top of the grinder. A couple of buds would be perfect. To do this, you have to carefully press them into the chamber. When you are done pressing down the lid, the flower will be set into place. Do not overfill the chamber.
Be gentle in twisting the grinder
Gently twist the grinder if it is manual and you are more likely to do it a dozen times to get you a perfectly ground weed. Maintaining the sharpness of your grinder is important as well.
Turn the grinder upside down
If you want a super fine weed, you can remove the kief chamber, turn the manual grinder upside down, and then grind. Put the kief after grinding. This allows for finer grinding which results in smoother ground weed.
Clean the grinder
Do not forget to clean the grinder. This is a very important process to ensure that your equipment will last for a long time. Use a soft cloth and a brush with soft bristles to remove all the residue. Do not use abrasive cleaning materials such as scrubbing pads to avoid damaging the herb grinder. You can also use rubbing alcohol as a cleaning agent and then rinse with warm water.
You have to clean it after every use because some flowers can leave your grinder sticky. What you want to avoid is rust on its teeth. Plus, it keeps you from getting sick. Bacteria or molds can form inside the tool if you don’t regularly clean it after use. Cleaning ensures that it also stays operational when you need it most.
