Hi, to dudes all, big and small!
-Just light that spliff up, this is going to be a 5 min read and 10min staring at the pictures.
-usually, this is a paintbrush job, but toothbrush will get the job done
Man, I really don't know how we used to live without these little metallic or plastic mechanical herb crushing devices. Now I just cannot imagine my life without it. When I just think about how much time have I spent crushing buds with my fingers, nails, scissors, nail clippers, knives and all sorts of things that were available at hand at the time. Yeah at first, in my teen years, it was fun - sticky and smelly fingers and all of that, but if you told me now to crush buds like that - you would get told to go fu*k yourself (unless perfectly cured crumbly bud ofc). Dude I've been using herbal grinders for loads years and there is no way back.
-diamond teeth with a bit of #resin and hash stuck on the inside rim; brushed it off
"True fact: #Grinder was invented by a dude named Lewis Heim. Heim was Australian engineer who worked for The Ball & Bearing Roller Company, at the time dudes were grinding the plug-tobacco for pipes, instead of usual - knives."
-top of the screen chamber is constantly getting packed with resin
The advantages are just too obvious. The thing works like a charm - pop your bud between the teeth of the two halves and grind dude! Just 2-3 spins do the trick and in a second bud is ground into perfection ready to roll, while using fingers or tools is totally inferior, usually, people get mad skilled after few years of practice, so they can do it so fast - unfortunately, the ground quality is never like from a grinder.
-carefully brush the resin on top of the screen
And in the new days, they are even attaching multiple levels with pollen collection screens and stash chambers. How could you resist them?
-gently move the mass with the brush over the screen and tap in on the side so trichomes can fall through, do not force them as you are going to push larger particles and broken terpenes through
Currently, I'm crushing buds with Royal Queen Seeds, zync 4 piece grinder #review.
Zync is my choice because it is only toxic in high quantities, a lot tougher than aluminium, stainless steel is still too expensive in my mind, and in the end, aluminium just shaves off too easily.
-roll a fatty with the remains and enjoy the hashy taste
-gif didn't do this joint any justice
-while smoking admire the fruit of your hard work :)
Grinding chamber is made out of diamond teeth and after grinding 10 ounces teeth are pretty clean and the thing works really well - grinding buds into a nice fluff that falls down on to the screen, where the resin glands can fall through if broken of plant material. There is a small bit of hash on the inside of the rim, but so far that does not interfere with performance.
-trichomes up close, a man could stare at this all day long
Macro moment - Lets get closer - Resin universe #budporn
-approx 80x magnified
-approx 100x magnified
-approx 480x magnified - so sweet that you want to name him and make him your pet
-approx 480x magnified - totally different universe down there, messy and wild
-can someone guess how many trichomes are in the shot?
It's 420 somewhere so.... well whom am I kidding, I smoke all the time anyway - stay high!
Love ya all!
