Step 3: Unscrew the chamber with the teeth to find the basket layer holding all your freshly ground cannabis. Load it into your pipe, joint, or blunt and enjoy!
A kief catcher refers to the bottom chamber below the screen that gathers all the potent crystal kief knocked off the buds in the grinding process. You can scoop the kief out and add it to the top of your bowl, or use it later to press your own hash or cook edibles.

Step 2: Replace the top of the grinder and give it about 10 rotations, until all the bud has fallen through the holes. You can remove the top and tap it against the grinder’s side to help loosen up any sticky pieces stuck in the teeth.
Step 4: Once you’ve collected some kief in the bottom chamber, scrape some out with a piece of paper or the scraping tool provided (not all grinder purchases will include one, but they’re definitely handy). Again, you can sprinkle kief onto a bowl to make it more potent, or save it for something else. Be careful with metal scrapers, as they can scrape aluminum particulates along with your kief!

  • Rub the sticky grinder parts with isopropyl alcohol and salt. This is a go-to cleaning method for pipes and bongs, but it works just as well for getting rid of the stickiness on grinder pieces.
  • Use a small brush (e.g. a stiff-bristled paintbrush, or a clean beard brush or toothbrush) to knock kief loose from the screen.
  • Freezing your grinder makes it harder for kief to stick to surfaces. Consider putting your grinder in the freezer before cleaning up the kiefy mess if it’s being particularly stubborn.
  • For really irredeemably sticky grinders, sometimes it’s best to just replace the thing altogether, especially if it’s a cheap grinder.

One day, you’ll have used your grinder so often that it will become sticky with kiefy resin. The threading on the sides where pieces screw together will become gummy, making it difficult (or impossible) to twist open. Avoid having your grinder lock up on you by keeping it clean; here are a few tips for keeping things running smoothly.
Step 1: Take off the top lid. Use your fingers to break bigger buds up and place them in between the grinder’s teeth. Don’t bother putting any bud in the direct center–this is where the magnet pivots, so nothing in the center will get shredded.

As you might have guessed, a grinder is the tool you use to break your cannabis up into small bits for smoother-hitting bowls or for wrapping in rolling papers and blunt wraps. There are a number of ways to grind cannabis if you don’t have a grinder, but grinders speed up the process and offer perks like kief catchers.

Learn about all the basics of a cannabis grinder, how to use it to grind your buds, and how to clean it when it gets too sticky from kief.

Weed smokes better when it’s broken up. The chemicals are actually along the surface of the plant, so burning all of the surface area is key.

Cannabis has little crystals call “trichomes” that sit on the plant surface. Those trichomes have all the chemicals – THC, CBD, and the terpenes that give weed its flavor and scent. Those crystals can fall off as you grind, and fall through the screen to the bottom chamber where you can collect the fallen pollen.
Too many grinders overload their chamber with TOO MANY small teeth, and therefore there’s not as much negative space left for holes — they’re either too small, or there are too few, or (even worse) both!

A weed grinder also know as an herb grinder or pollen sifter is a device that grinds your pot or weed into finer and more uniform bits. This makes your bud burn more evenly therefore maximizing efficiency.
This Green Goddess grinder is a four piece grinder. The top piece is a magnetic spinning lid with teeth in the top/underside. moving downwards. The second piece forms the main grinding chamber and has teeth extending upwards (so the weed is trapped between the top and bottom teeth). The 3rd piece forms the “catch Chamber” below the grinding chamber and you can actually use your grinder as a storage jar if you want to, and leave the weed in it. This catch chamber has a screen it it that allows kief / pollen to fall down into the 4th piece which forms the pollen chamber and is the bottom of the grinder.

After a few grinding sessions you’ll accumulate enough weed pollen sprinkle over your next bowl or joint, or bone, or pipe.
A lot of grinders have a “catch chamber” that the ground up weed falls into.

You can do it with your fingers but it leaves your fingers smelling like weed, and the results are very uneven.
