It grinds the bud up to increase its surface area. Used alot in the UK when rolling joints. You can get plastic, metal or ceramic grinders in all different shapes sizes and colours!
Btw that is one freaky ass sig picture, making SWIM trip balls man >_<

A grinder grinds your weed into smaller particles so that you can pack it in easier and get it cherried easier.

consult Mitch Hedburg's kitchen appliance naming rule

what it does, then put "-er" after it

it grinds up the weed into smaller pieces.

Many people love their nug straight up. What I PERSONALLY prefer is to toss the nug into my grinder and give it a few spins!

A grinder takes that nug and, well, grinds it into much smaller pieces. This makes smoking so much better!!! You'll find that grinding your weed makes it much easier to smoke. The weed is extremely easy to handle and pack into TIGHT bowls. You can fit a lot more ground up pot in a bowl than just straight chunks. The bowl will burn more evenly, cherry very easily... The biggest difference is that grinding increases surface area of the weed, which makes it a lot easier to burn; this means that it is possible to take hits with more smoke in them than ever before. My roommate doesn't grind his pot, I do, he always looks over at me when am hitting Mercedes (our bong) and says "Damn, that was huge!".

I would recommend that you invest in a grinder with a kief collector! The kief collector will eventually accumulate a lot of super-high potency powder that you can sprinkle onto a bowl.

Do some research on the net and at your local headshop.

I don't know how I ever lived without a grinder!

I wouldnt buy one without a kief collector because you can just grind it up with your fingers.

agreed.

the only reason i bought mine was for the kief collector. its not like weed is hard to break up with your fingers.

I use a grinder for j's when the green has been bricked.
Tip: Look at the tobacco in a cigarette. You want the smoking matter to be similar.
Grind the stems and green, stop when you still feel resistance or you will end up with powder. The stems help hold the material together and make the j smoke evenly-just like a manufactured cig. Nice when you're driving.

grinders are well worth it if you smoke blunts or joints very often. also with bongs you can get amazing rips using grinded bud. i love my grinder, i love the kief screen more though. Cause i have a hash press so i can make discs of hash.

J Bone, if you really wanna get a nice shotgun, grind that shit up big time, and then torch the hell out of it. When its ground up it allows more oxygen to get through so that the fire gets bigger so you get bigger hits. I guarantee you'll like the shotgun more afterwards.

i just got a grinder and a bubbler from a friend for $20, i had never used a grinder before, either toking the nug, or breaking it up with my fingers, or using a knife, a grinder was well worth it, it does a better job, especially for rolling joints when this is important, and helped me to pack better bowls, and it collects all the kif, and the one i got was my friends and she used it so much and only sold it to me cause her parents didnt like having her as a tenant with her smoking, and were searching her room latley, and it wasnt working properly cause of all the kif caked up on the outside where the two halves are touching, and i scraped it off and smoked it and felt it after one hit, so basically a grinder is well worth the investment, and you can grind up as much or as little as you want and keep in in there by putting a rubber band around it.

if your gonna get a metal grinder...there was a post on here a while ago about putting ur grinder in the freezer for an hour or so before grinding up the weed...this way you get more kief...i think you get more kief because the metal gets a bit frosty and you all know when u touch frosty metal ur skin sticks to it...so i think more kief sticks to the frosty metal surface of the grinder when u grind up the weed.

No way man. A 5 dollar plastic ball grinder is waaaaaay better than fingers. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better.

Even if you don't spring for a grinder with a kief collector, definitely get a grinder.

Besides, if you want to smoke a bunch of kief, no need to drop 50 bucks on a SpaceCase or whatever.
