After a decade and a half of herb grinding, we still can’t recommend grinders enough for newbies.
We don’t see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind. More and more cannabis aficionados are grinding their weed before they smoke it, and with vaporization, the trend is getting even hotter. Herb grinders are usually small, palm-sized, puck-like discs that split apart to reveal little grinding teeth. Load in the herb, close up the grinder and twist a few turns to transform the stickiest, densest bud into fluffy, green-white grinds perfect for joints, pipe bowls and vaporizers that take flower.
According to High Times icon Danny Danko, grinders got their global launch in 2001 with the company Sweetleaf.
