Grinding Your Cannabis: How to Get a Fine Grind

Grinding your weed exposes more of it to air during vaporization, drawing more active ingredients and conserving your weed at the same time! Here are a few tips for grinding as well as buying a grinder.

We loaded three basic marijuana grinders with herb and put them to the test. Some worked better than others. If you have big hands, look for a larger grinder because they can be slim and hard to hold.

A. Cheapie plastic two-piece grinder fails our tests to make a semi-fine mix. This will waste weed in many vaporizers such as the Magic Flight Launch Box.

B. Metal four-piece grinder does a better job for a finer consistency, but still misses our mark. The finer the grind the better the vape session.

C. Metal two-piece grinder does a nice job getting to semi-fine because you can over-grind and shake things around to get more of a powerdy consistency.

Also a coffee grinder works very well, but can pulverize herb to dust, which can be too fine for some vapes. Experiment and do tests with your specific strains.

Shopping List: Grinders

Get a Great Grind

Not all vaporizers work well with a fine grind, but if yours does, spend the time to grind! Generally I like to over-grind and see a little dusty powder in my grinder, but some vaporizers work just fine with a medium or even semi-corse grind.
