Grinder machines speed up and simplify the process of sorting dried herbs. Additionally, it is much easier to store finely ground herbs.
Pollen and other plant particles may cling to your fingers if you select the herb by hand, reducing its effectiveness. However, the herb can be packed more firmly into a bowl or rolling paper once it has been ground. To put it another way, this means that the herb will burn less before you start inhaling, which will improve the movement of air through your lungs. You have more control over how quickly (or slowly) and evenly it burns, as a result of this. There are several advantages to using your cannabis in this manner, especially with water pipes or bubblers. The versatility of a weed grinder allows dab press it to be used as a portable storage container for smaller amounts of material.
An upper and a lower chamber can be formed by interlocking parts of metal or plastic, which is the most common material for most grinders. When the two portions are rotated so that they move in the opposite direction of each other and the array of teeth contained inside, any dry herb placed in the upper chamber will be sliced and ground up.
Between the two portions are gaps where the powdered herb passes until it reaches the storage chamber below. As far as the number and type of teeth, it’s a matter of personal preference, as different brands offer varying grinding powers depending on the model you select.
A four-piece grinder, for example, has a bottom chamber that is separated from the other chambers by a metal mesh screen. Many grinders have more chambers than simply the two described above. During the grinding process, this screen collects any pollen that may fall off the herb. It is stored in a separate chamber so that it can be used as needed.
Using a coin or other tiny, weighted object within the grinder is a common practise, and it is necessary to clean and care for the grinder in order to keep it from being clogged.
