Do I Have to Grind My Weed? The Answer May Shock You
The short answer to that is YES. Here’s why ground herb leads to a superior smoking experience:
- Even, solid burn
- Less lighter butane
- Bigger Bowls
- Easier packing
- Increased aroma
Better Burn, Less Butane
We've all been there, inhaling massive amounts of lighter butane while trying to nurse every smoke particle from the crater sized nug you dropped in the bowl. Putting large, ungrounded chunks of weed in your bowl clogs air flow and creates an inconsistent burn. Grinding your herb allows the heat to dissipate fully through your product, evenly burning everything so there are no unpleasant surprises like super-hot smoke or wasted bud.
Bigger, tighter packed bowls
Chunks of weed is stupid hard to pack. With grinded weed you're able to fill more of the bowl with flower so you spend less time packing and more time smoking. There's also little wasted space in the bowl so you need less lighter butane for the flower to ignite. Less heat means you burn less THC away and a better higher. For a good-looking joint or a bowl that doesn’t look like there’s a narc in your crew, you’ve simply got to grind.

Increased Flavor & Aroma
Grinding your weed fully releases the nuanced flavor and aroma of that particular strand.
Stems suck. That’s the nicest way to put it. They’re bad for you, they’ve got nothing good for you (unlike bud), and they just get in the way of a good time. Using a grinder means you get all of the good and none of the bad – and who doesn’t want that?
