Rotary grinders are a mechanical alternative to the traditional hand twist grinders. They work by using a small hand
crank to spin an internal mechanism. They easily and thoroughly pulverize and grind down your herb. They are
thorough and accessible perfect for people with restricted movement in their hands and wrists.
Grinders are an essential herb accessory. They are as essential to your enjoyment of your herb as skins, bongs,
pipes or vapes. Each way of enjoying your herb benefits hugely from carefully and thoroughly ground herb.
Joints can be rolled with a smoother distribution of herb if it is ground first. Bongs can be more densely
packed, and so can bongs.
Vaporizers can produce a much denser and flavorful vapor if the herb in their chamber has been ground. This is
because ground herb exposes more of the herb’s surface area for the heating systems to act on!
Dried herb’s natural state is a sort of crumbly mass of individual nuggets. These individual nuggets can be smoked
or vaporized but you will lose a lot of the active ingredients in the middle to combustion or result in poor,
thin vapor. Attempting to break your herb down by hand tends to produce poor results, you won’t physically be
able to break it down much smaller than it already is, and you’ll end up with fingers covered in resin! Using
scissors or a knife is a better option but you still won’t end up with the fine results you can get with a
To Rotary Grinder or not?
Many herb grinders have see through plastic lids that allow you to keep an eye on how fine you are grinding your
herb. The advantage of this is apparent when you’re packing a vaporizer. Vaporizers have two main methods of
heating; conduction and convection. Conduction heats herb directly while convection gradually heats herb by
blowing hot air across it, similar to how a fan over works. To get the most out of each of these techniques it
is advisable to adjust your grind to suit them. For conduction it is best to finely grind your herb, conduction
needs to affect as much of your herbs surface area as possible to ensure a thick and tasty vapor. However for
convection, you may want a less fine grind as you need to leave gaps within your vapes chamber to allow air to
flow through and around your herb.
Rotary grinders now in Canada are the ultimate evolution on the grinder design, pulverising herb with immaculate
ease with a few effortless turns of a crank. No matter how attached you are to that plastic grinder you bought
seven years ago you have to admit a rotary grinder is a fantastic piece of kit and it will up your herb game
Be sure to look up at the ideal grind for your smoke tool of choice, bongs will have a different grind when compared
to pipes. Joints will have a vastly different requirement when compared to vaporizers. Knowing the perfect
grind for your tool of choice is the difference between a good smoke and a great session!
