Vapeducation – The Grinder

 

Available now!

If you’re the proud new owner of one of our first-class vaporizers, firstly, congratulations! You possess one of the most innovative, versatile vapes on the planet. With legislation passing left and right, and vaporizing entering mainstream culture harder than ever, we thought it would be good to start a little series all about educating our adoring friends about the basics of our favorite past time.

Besides your sweet new vaporizer and all its accessories, there are a few things you need to round out your vaping experience. But today we’re focused in on a vital piece of gear you need to properly enjoy vaporizing your favorite dried herbs and plants – the grinder.

Now, if you live in New England, that last sentence may have conjured up images of giant sandwiches. And while a giant sandwich could be considered an important part of certain vaping routines, we’re actually talking about a mechanical grinder: one that will grind down your dried plant material into a palate-pleasing consistency.

Our SideKick portable vaporizer holds up to ¼ gram of your favorite dried herbs, but the moment you try and vape a whole loose leaf or a few stem-laden pieces, you may find more frustration than satisfaction. That’s because thorough vaporization depends upon even heating throughout the vaporization chamber. The more finely-ground your plant material, the more evenly it’s heated and ultimately, the better your vape.

 

So, What Is a Grinder?

Unlike the electric coffee grinder you bought when you were in your, “I can make drinks just as good as Dutch Bros. at home,” phase (no, you can’t), herb grinders are much simpler. While there are many different types of herb grinders, our favorites are the two-piece grinder and the four-piece grinder. Each offer specific benefits, depending upon your needs.

 

Two-Piece Grinders

This grinder comes in, well, two pieces. A toothed lid nestles squarely into a toothed base, like a miniature pair of circular, rotating crocodile jaws. Dried herbs or plants are placed between the two sections, then the lid is rotated against the fixed bottom, or the lid and bottom are rotated in opposite directions. This rotation causes the teeth inside to strip away stems and to grind the plant material into a finer, more vape-friendly consistency. Although a two-piece grinder doesn’t produce a separated grind like its bigger 4-piece brother, there are less parts to keep track of and operation is a breeze.

 

Four-Piece Grinders

Shockingly, this grinder comes in four pieces. A toothed lid sits on top, with another toothed grinding layer below it. Below these two toothed sections, a screen catches the larger ground pieces while the bottom reservoir catches the smaller pieces, pollen, or dry sift (sometimes called “kief”). Just like with the two-piece grinder, the top two sections are rotated in opposite directions and the final products are caught and kept either in the screen or reservoir sections.

While you get a finely separated final product, the insides can get a little sticky while collecting certain types of resins and dry sift. But not to worry! Our sweet anodized grinders are dishwasher safe. So you can grind to your little heart’s content, buddy.
