Vaping is big business these days and it only seems to be growing larger as more and more laws are permitting the use of dry herbs. There’s really no doubt that vaping is the cleanest, purest method of inhaling herbs since it reduces much of the harmful effects of combustion. If you’re looking to get into vaping, then it’s recommended that you first get a vaporizer. Vaporizers can run a pretty penny if you want the best of the best, but they’re worth it. However, you’ll want to decide if your first dry herb vaporizer is going to be a portable or a stationary. There’s a lot of great portable vaporizers available these days. The Arizer Solo 2 is considered to be one of the most reliable vaporizers on the market. The most popular stationary vaporizer today is normally considered the world famous Volcano Classic vaporizer. No matter which vaporizer you decide to purchase at the beginning of your vaping journey, there’s something else you’re going to need that most people have a tendency to forget when they first purchase their vaporizer: a dry herb grinder.
What is a dry herb grinder?
Some are quite aware of the purpose of the dry herb grinder as they’re not particularly new or revolutionary. It has been around for ages among certain advocates. If you’re a novice, you’ll want to become acquainted with the device before you begin vaping. A dry herb grinder is a device, usually cylindrical in nature, used to shred raw materials into smaller granules. The more refined the material, the easier it is to use. Once again, this isn’t exactly a breakthrough revelation. Another great thing about the grinder is that is significantly reduces the amount of time one spends breaking up raw materials. Another benefit is that a lot more of the raw material is used.
Wooden Dry Herb Grinder
With so many grinders out today, all you need is something simple. The wooden herbal grinder is perfect for the common user who is looking to use ground up herbs without getting their fingers dirty. A little higher end grinder from our selection of two, it gets the job done. It has a firm grip and it very durable. Being wood, it does not easily break or crack even when it is accidentally dropped. The good thing about the wooden grinder is that it does not easily open so if it did happen to fall, it would not open up and cause your dry herbs to fall all over.
Acrylic Herb Grinder
Acrylic grinders are made of acrylic or good plastic. They are pretty slipper and tend to fall or open up easier but they are good because the tiny bits of dry herbs don’t stick to the grinder too hard. They easily open up between the top and bottom piece. The acrylic grinders can come in random colors.
How to use a dry herb grinder?
A dry herb grinder works by placing the materials in the top part of the grinder. Both of the parts are equipped with teeth just like the bottom part. When the grinder is closed and twisted, the teeth begin to shred and grind the materials into finer, easier to use granules. The longer the materials are ground up, the finer they become. Lightly banging the grinder against a hard surface will break free any materials that might be stuck to the sides or in the teeth. Most dry herb grinders are composed of either two or four parts. The four-part grinders are usually a little more expensive, but also a lot more convenient because they allow the user to keep the grounds in another compartment rather as opposed to dumping the grounds on something like a tray. Another advantage to the four-part grinder is that once you have dumped the material into the other compartment, you can save the materials in that compartment instead of carrying it around in a tin can or plastic bag. One reason a person should purchase a grinder is that their materials will actually be more potent because the fingers are not absorbing all the enzymes. Some dry herb grinders are specially designed to catch material users sometimes lose when breaking their material up by hand. Also, it cannot be stated enough how much preparation time the user will save with a grinder.
