How to Use a Ginder

If you buy Solei’s dried-bud cannabis, you’ll need to learn how to break down the bud into finer pieces in order to use it in a vaporizer or roll it into a joint.

You might be wondering Can’t I just use my fingers or scissors to break up the bud? Sure, if you like sticky fingers and imprecise fragments.

A grinder is one of the handiest tools any cannabis consumer could own. It lets you control the consistency of how finely you want to grind your cannabis buds.

To get the most out of your cannabis, first remove the lid of your grinder and place a few small buds between its teeth. Refrain from placing buds in the center of the grinder, which can restrict the tool’s motion.

Then place the lid back on the grinder and rotate it around six times. You might not want to rotate it any more than that because if your cannabis is too finely-ground it can be difficult for a joint to burn evenly and gradually.

Then remove the upper sections of the grinder by firmly grasping the base of the grinder with one hand and, using your other hand, twist off the grinder teeth section and the lid from the base of the grinder. You should see the ground-up buds in the chamber and then you can pour the cannabis onto a clean surface area where you plan to pack a vaporizer, bowl or roll your joint.

Also, remember to clean your grinder frequently, since it’ll take the brunt of all that sticky bud your hands luckily avoid. You can clean grinders with a dry toothbrush, paintbrush, or clean mascara wand. If the grinder is very sticky, a more thorough cleaning might require soaking it in isopropyl alcohol, warm water, and salt.
