Wholesale weed grinders
Weed or dry herb grinders are a staple in every smoke shop, head shop and dispensary across North America. Grinders allow cannabis users to shred their cannabis flower or medical herbs for quick and easy consumption with their bong, hand pipe, rolling papers, or vaporizer. Having a reliable grinder by their side can save customers time and money with less waste and more control of their cannabis.
A weed grinder or pollinator is a tool usually comprised of 2-4 main parts that interlock and twist to cut and shred the cannabis into smaller pieces for consumption. The grinders are usually hand-sized cylinders with two primary compartments that pull apart to reveal the teeth. Once the cannabis is added into the top piece the user simply locks both pieces back in place and twists. The teeth are engineered to slice the cannabis into small useable pieces with each twist, perfect for easy and smooth consumption. Pollinators have an added sifting screen compartment that allows kief to fall into the bottom.
Grinders are made from numerous types of materials, from anodized aluminum and plastics to pure hemp. There is no shortage of styles and brands to choose from. Most users like to keep their more expensive grinders at home for personal use, but more affordable grinders are also good to have on hand for consumers looking for a travel piece or backup to take to a friend’s house.
With multiple price entry points and a surplus of quality-of-life enhancements grinders are a must have accessory for any retail or online cannabis store to ensure their customers have everything they need.
Two-piece grinders have one compartment that grinds and collects yours. Perfect for your casual cannabis consumer who is looking for a quick and effective way to prepare their dried. A limitation of the two-piece grinder is consumers may find it difficult to retrieve their ground from between the teeth of the unit.
Three-piece grinders are a definite step up in quality from the two-piece option. In a three-piece device, you'll find small holes that allow pieces of finely ground to fall into a lower compartment. This separation helps serious consumers collect and enjoy kief that catches in the teeth on the grinder.
Four piece grinders are the superior of the three options and typically reserved for your premium consumers. The four-piece device is designed for collecting kief and includes a screen or filter that helps residue to pass through the chamber responsible for retrieving kief.
How to clean a grinder
First and foremost, you want to brush off any remaining crumbs and particles from your grinder before you clean it. Take apart the grinder and separate it before you brush it. This can be done with a toothbrush and toothpick, as well as the included scraper tool. Take your time getting out the bigger chunks and brushing out the debris. Next, fill a zip-lock bag halfway with isopropyl alcohol and warm water (a 50/50 mixture). Place the grinder compartments into the zip-lock bag and close it. Now shake up the bag for 20 seconds (allow it to soak for those extra dirty grinders). Then, drain the bag and inspect your grinder. Still a little dirty? Brush it with your cleaning brush and repeat the zip-lock process again if necessary.
How to grind weed
Grinding weed is easy! It doesn’t matter how many compartments you have; you always need to start off by removing the cap of the top chamber (or just splitting it in two if there are only two pieces). Next, place cannabis nug(s) inside of the grinder, be sure that it is not too big for the grinder (create about a half-inch gap between the cap and the grinder). Then push the lid back on top of the grinder or pollinator and move it in a circular motion. Move the lid clockwise for 2 seconds, then back counter-clockwise for the same amount of time. Repeat this process until you feel little to no resistance from the cap. Open your grinder (This depends on how many compartments you have) open the portion that collects the ground bud and fill your smoking device or add to your stash jar.
Why you should supply grinders
Grinders are an important and necessary tool for any cannabis smoker looking to get the most out of their buds. Grinder ensures even breakdown of the herbs to help improve the burn consistency and longevity of the cannabis with a more even distribution for each session. Supplying your shop with grinders ensures your customers have the device they need to truly enjoy their cannabis smoking experiences each time. Many smokers usually buy more than one as they like to take cheaper grinders on the go to visit friends or go camping. Ensure you supply a variety of grinder tiers so that your customers can select the one that best fits their needs and budget.
Every smoke shop and dispensary should supply grinders as well as airtight storage jars so customers can stash and preserve their left-over buds post grind. Educating customers on cannabis care will help make their smoking experience better and ensure they come back for more. It’s a great investment for both your dispensary, as well as the end consumer in rounding out their smoking experience with the proper gear.
