Break it Up! 4 Reasons You Should Always Grind Your Cannabis
Updated: Dec 10, 2019
- The many benefits of grinding up your cannabis before consuming it.
Vaping, eating, topically applying, oh my!
This isn’t fantasy land, but there’s an ever-growing number of ways to consume cannabis products.
Here are four reasons you should always grind up your cannabis before consumption.
Enjoy the smell.
When breaking up cannabis the first thing you’ll notice is how sticky it is.
The next thing you’ll perceive, however, is the smell.
As you separate the flower into smaller bits, some of the terpenes are released into the air.
Not only will you get to enjoy the smells, but a 2017 study showed that simply smelling terpenes can be good for you.
Whether you’re smoking or vaping your buds, breaking them up will make them easier to consume.
The finer the grind, the more even of a burn you will receive.
Grinding may be even more important when vaporizing it since you’re not roasting it down to ash. Getting an even heat throughout helps with the release of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
If you’re using a chambered grinder, then grinding your cannabis is also performing the most simple extraction on the planet.
The kief buildup in the trap can be smoked, decarboxylated and eaten, or even pressed for rosin.
So you don’t ruin it for everyone else.
If you don’t grind up your cannabis and instead smash a full bud into your pipe or try to roll up a paper-full of small nuggets, everyone around you will think you won’t know what you’re doing.
People may be kind enough to not say anything, but it won’t burn properly and the experience will be diminished for everyone.
As you can see, there are plenty of good reasons you should always be grinding up your cannabis.
