The cannabis industry is gradually growing with every passing year. Since the legalization of cannabis, we have seen a lot of innovations. Now you can get your 420 med card without even leaving your home, with the help of telemedicine. We now have various methods of consuming cannabis: from smoking joint, eating edibles to applying cannabis topicals, consuming tinctures. While we have come a long way since the legalization of cannabis, most people still prefer smoking cannabis over any other method of consuming cannabis.
Smoking cannabis is one of the most traditional ways of consuming cannabis, and also a fan favorite. Whether you are smoking cannabis to simply relax or to manage a certain medical condition, you want to have the best smoking experience. There are many gadgets that can help in enhancing your cannabis smoking experience. One such device is a cannabis grinder. A grinder helps a lot by grinding your sticky cannabis buds. This saves you a lot of time and enhances your smoking experience. Nowadays, most people use a grinder to grind their buds. But what if you are not able to find your grinder while you are all set to smoke your buds? Well, don’t worry, there are many tricks that can help you break down your buds without a grinder.
So, here is a list of some of the best tricks that helps you break down your buds. Having said that, let’s get into it!
Trick 1. Using Your hands
This one sounds pretty obvious, but sometimes all you need is to get back to basics. Before there were grinders, stoners used to break down their buds using their fingers. It is still the favorite way to break down cannabis for many cannabis enthusiasts. It is a very simple trick as well. You just need to make a bowl-like shape with your one hand. Then simply start breaking apart your buds with your other hand.
But this method is a bit tedious and comes with a small downside. When you break down your buds with your fingers, the resin will build around your hands. However, you can use a credit card or keys to scrape it off your hands. Also, you can smoke it in a bong or joint to get an extra kick. This is one of the most traditional ways of making hash.
If you do not wish to get your hands dirty while breaking down cannabis, take the help of parchment papers. Use pieces of parchment paper to use them as barriers between your hands and cannabis.
Trick 2. Using a Coin And Container
This is one of my favorite tricks to break down cannabis! You just need a clean coin and a solid container for this method. Trust me, it may sound a little over-the-top, but it is one of the best ways to break down cannabis.
Get a clean, solid container and throw your cannabis inside it. Then throw a coin (or a few) inside the container and seal the lid. Finally, just start giving it a good shake. Your coin will keep thrashing around the container and will tear through your sticky and dense buds. Make sure you choose a sturdy container for this method. I would suggest using prescription bottles or breath mint tins for this hack. Also, do not overpack your container as your coin needs space to thrash around.
Trick 3. Breaking Down Cannabis Using a Coffee Grinder
Do you have a larger quantity of cannabis with you to break down? While the above-mentioned methods are great, they are not very efficient when it comes to larger quantities of cannabis. This is where a coffee grinder can help you.
Just put your buds into the grind and start grinding as you would do with coffee beans. But remember, you will need a credit card or keys to collect the resin that builds up from cannabis afterward.
While you are planning to use a coffee grinder, make sure you wash and dry it thoroughly before and after using it. This is important in order to avoid contaminating the aroma of your coffee and/or cannabis.
