The Herb Grinder has gained popularity for treating smoking herbs but do you really need to grind your herbs ?
Some smokers can't live without their trusty herbal friend for the grinding of organic plant material. Others say they are a novelty that alters the herbs it chops up. If you are looking for some herb data for the best grind around we got you covered.
Why use an Herb Grinder at all ?
Herb grinders are used to grind legal bud or tobacco before smoking it. Some say it helps the material to burn more evenly, whether rolled in a hand-made cigarette or smoked in a pipe.
Yet others contest the device's practical functionality saying it is nothing more than a useless toy.
One thing is for sure. If you are on the fence about whether you really need an herb grinder or not, find a reasonably priced model like that offered by International Oddities.
Using scissors is not exactly grinding your herbs but it is another approach. Don't forget the good old fashioned way with hands to break apart the buds. Could it really be that simple and fast? If you insist on grinding your buds instead of just using your hands, you may be able to custom mix herbal blends together that will smoke smoothly for an added twist.
If you can really say the act of rubbing or rolling two objects together is mechanical, then one would have to admit that herb grinders have indeed progressed technically over the last few years. The wood or metal or plastic multi-stage compartments are in theory supposed to evenly cut the softer portion of the plant while permitting the easy separation of stems and the occasional unwanted seed. A few herbal units for grinding even contain a separate section for the retention of the ground plant material. Frankly the evacuation of herb material on any nearby surface seems a whole lot more logical for the user, but there are options in the herb grinder arena. Depending on the screen style an extremely fine mesh cut can be achieved and some users may find use for this kind of material, yet others may find this destroys the really good stuff.
Originating at least in theory from the original mortar and pestle, these modern machines used for mashing leaves and plant matter into a finer smoking mix appear here to stay. If they really produce a better smoke actually depends on what you are smoking and how you are rolling it or bowling it or cooking with it or vaporizing it or even smoking it in a hookah.
If you really want to play around with one, you can find them at smoke shops, or novelty stores or even the corner liquor store. The portability of a good herb grinder makes it useful for travel. With a little looking around you may even discover electric and battery operated grinders for spices and various herbs.
There are so many manufacturers that have jumped on the band wagon that you can find these funny gadgets powered by usb cables and rechargeable batteries and even a solar model or two. That brings new meaning to baking in the sun.
It all comes down to why you would possibly want to complicate your life with an extra step in the ritual of smoking anyway.
