A good cannabis grinder goes a long way. Because, without a decent grinder, you risk stuffing your rolling paper with large chunks of marijuana that burn unevenly and ruin your experience. Not to mention the fact that you risk wasting a lot of product using bad marijuana grinders.
Good cannabis grinders cut through the dry herb and chop it up to a small, flavourful and smokable size. They spare you from the time-consuming process of picking apart your herb by hand, and they can store enough herb to last for multiple smoking sessions.
