im pretty sure that when u damage them the thc just starts to come out, so if ur gonna smoke the bud right away than that is fine. However if u want to store ground up weed it will lose potency because the thc degrades.

I wouldn't worry about it. I've certainly never been noticeable less high after grinding, and I've got better things to do than worry about a few molecules.

I'm with him. It doesn't matter if the trichomes are damaged.

breaking up the trichromes doesnt change their chemical makeup or anything so its still the same THC just probably broken up more and dispersed more evenly throughout your weed.

Rupturing trichomes actually does degrade the THC levels, because they become exposed to oxygen. That being said, it is unlikely that you wil notice much of a degredation of the bud. Don't forget to grind with a kief catcher to catch those trichomes that break off the stalks though.
