Five Medical Conditions That Can Be Treated With Cannabis

Ever since the drug war began there has been a huge misconception around marijuana and the fact that laws and government officials claimed marijuana has no medical uses.  This worked to benefit the criminal justice system and pharmaceutical companies who are frequently peddling legal drugs that are most often significantly more dangerous than marijuana.  Thankfully, the truth about the medicinal uses of marijuana is beginning to come to light as American society is slowly changing its views on cannabis.  We are presenting five medical conditions that can be treated with cannabis, but this is not a total list as many other conditions can be treated with cannabis as well.

Standard Cali Crusher in Blue

Cali Crusher Grinders has been in the herb grinder market since 2010 and have developed a solid reputation for quality grinding and design.  Found in many different smoke shops, retail stores, and e-commerce markets, Cali Crusher is also a very popular choice among smokers.  Over time Cali Crusher has expanded their product line to include the premium Homegrown, which are exclusively designed and manufactured in the USA.  Regular Cali Crusher Grinders are made in China via a contract manufacturer.  They also have clear top and crank top options that some of you may prefer depending on your individual needs and preferences.  Cali Crusher Grinders also come in a variety of color options including black, silver, blue, pink, red, gold, green, and purple among others.  With all the different choices offered by Cali Crusher you will be hard pressed to not find a grinder that will suit you well.

button (4)Good points

Material

Cali Crusher Grinders are a made from good quality aluminum that is anodized so that there is never a concern about paint chipping off into your herb.  The teeth on each Cali Crusher we’ve had the opportunity to use has been sharp, durable, and plentiful.  Because the teeth are strong you should get plenty of use out of a Cali Crusher without seeing a drop in performance and grind.  Neodymium magnets are used on each of the Cali Crushers which keep the lid in place while cranking the lid with the herb in the grind chamber.  Their Homegrown Grinders feature medical grade aluminum that are ultrasonically cleaned before being packaged and shipped.  Overall, the materials of Cali Crusher Grinders may vary from model to model, but they are consistently good and will perform well over time.

Design

Cali Crusher Homegrown

The design of Cali Crusher grinders varies depending on the model.  The standard Cali Crusher Grinder has a fairly standard diamond teeth design with a filter screen that works to filter kief.

The Homegrown series has some more unique features including Quicklock technology that eliminates the possibility of threading the grooves on the grinder.  The teeth also have a unique design meant to maximize the amount of herb that can be ground at one time.

Homegrown also has a removable screen and a rounded bottom kief collector chamber to make scrapping easier.  The clear top grinders have a clear plastic top to see the grinding process in action, while the crank top has a pencil sharpener type mechanism that allows you to turn the crank to grind the herb.

Variety

Color Schemes of the Cali Crusher Homegrown

There may not be another herb grinder brand that produces more different types of grinder than Cali Crusher.  As mentioned in the top of this review, Cali Crushers come in many different sizes, models, prices, and colors.

Performance

Because there are so many different types of Cali Crushers, it is hard to say that each model will perform the same.  The ones we have had the opportunity to test have performed well and created a smooth even grind.  We do recommend checking user reviews of the particular grinder you are interested in before making a purchase decision.

Lifetime Warranty

This one is a mixed bag for us.  The Homegrown line of Cali Crushers does come with a lifetime manufacturers warranty.

Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the case for the standard line of Cali Crusher Grinders.  Disappointing as we feel that all grinders from Cali Crusher should be provided the same warranty to treat customers equally and to simplify the process.

Bad Points

Price

The standard 2″ Cali Crusher four piece grinder comes in at a price around $25 on Amazon, which certainly is not outrageous.  However, for a couple extra bucks you can get a Black Tie Grinder that is another 1/2 inch in size a very comparable quality.

The Homegrown grinders are downright expensive costing a whopping $90 for a 2.35 inch diameter grinder.  While the Homegrown does have some unique features in no way do we feel that this justifies such a high price point.

Knockoffs

Cali Crusher is susceptible to knockoffs especially on third party marketplaces such as Amazon and Ebay.  Make sure to check the seller reviews on Amazon before purchasing to make sure that you are getting the real deal.

The Final Grind

Cali Crusher is one of the most established brands in the herb grinder world.  They have many different models and styles with varying features and price points.

Their standard grinder is a good choice with quality grinding quality and different color schemes to choose from.

We recommend avoiding the Homegrown line as the performance just doesn’t live up to the premium price.

It’s time for another grinder review from us here at bestgrinder.net; many weed grinders make up the market, from basic, low-cost models to higher priced, top of the line grinders.

We’re going to take a look here at Phoenician Grinders, a series of weed grinders that sit at the top of the line when it comes to price in the weed grinder market. Phoenician Grinders offer a unique set of features that many other models do not have, and those features are reflected through a higher priced product than most of its competitors.

Phoenician Grinders are one of the few grinder brands made in the USA, and like its competitor Space Case, Phoenician grinders sit at a premium price point due to its domestic manufacturing and its unique features. Let’s take a look at what a Phoenician Grinder can offer you.

button (4)Good points

Material

Phoenician Grinders are made using American-sourced materials, including an aerospace grade aluminum that is meticulously inspected for top quality. They put their grinders through a de-burring process that ensures removal of any sharp flakes that could end up in your product later on. Not all grinders allow for this de-burring process, but Phoenician prides itself on having a de-burred product that gets expertly inspected afterwards to make sure all possible shreds have been removed. T

he magnets used in both the standard and elite models of Phoenician grinders are made of N52 neodymium magnets, which are shown to be the strongest magnet available for this product.

Design

 

Phoenician Grinders are sold in both 2 piece and 4 piece models, and among their design are some decidedly unique features. On the outside, the grinders have a special knurl-style grip, which allows the user an easier time of opening the grinder to insert and remove your herbs.

This is especially helpful for medical marijuana patients, who may have weakness in opening other brands of grinders. These grinders don’t have threads to screw on, but feature a patent-pending fast-lock system for easier open and close. Also unique in these grinders are the teeth; instead of the higher number of teeth that most grinder brands have, Phoenician Grinders removed 50% of the teeth of an average grinder to allow more room for herb and to reduce friction, increase strength, and allow for a smoother cut.

The teeth don’t rub against each other as much, which helps them to last longer. Along with the different sizes, Phoenician Grinders are available in many different colors, as well as an elite series with grinders coated in premium metals, like chrome and 24k gold.

Pollen Catcher

The stainless steel screens of the Phoenician Grinder is sized to the grinder and not stretched to fit; it can also be removed and replaced, which is a feature that other grinders do not have. Once the screen gets gross, you can either remove it and replace it, or at least give it a rinse and cleaning much easier than you can with other grinder brands. The pollen catcher itself is made in a bowl-like design, so that users can easily collect the pollen from the catcher without leaving a ton of leftovers still in the grinder.

Performance

For a premium price, you do get a premium product. The Phoenician grinder is well reviewed, and we found it to be a quality product that gets the job done. The grinder cuts herbs easily, into a fine product, and with ease of use. The unique features are a nice bonus, but the grind quality is similar to lower-priced brands, so you might find that the features are not worth the high price.

Lifetime Warranty

Phoenician Grinders offer a lifetime warranty on the function of the grinder; they want their grinder to be the last one you ever buy. The warranty does not cover scratching the finish or denting of the appearance, but they will cover all of the parts and functionality of the grinder with full backing.

Bad Points

Phoenician Grinders offer a variety of unique features, an American-made product, and a wide assortment of sizes and colors. However, the price point of Phoenician Grinders might be enough to cause some customers to look elsewhere.

Price

Phoenician Grinders are at the absolute top when it comes to price point; there are few grinders more expensive on the market. You have many other great grinder options that come at a lower price-point yet still allow for a great quality grind, minus some of the extra features, which many people find they can live without.

Other than the high price, the Phoenician Grinder gives consumers a high quality product that offers a good grinder.

The Final Grind

Phoenician is a great herb grinder brand with an emphasis on quality and patented features that you will not find on any other grinder.

For those with the budget, it is hard to top Phoenician’s mix of quality materials and functionality.

However, if you are on a budget and want a fine grinder without the bells and whistles there are many other options available.

Five Cheap Herb Grinders That Get the Job Done

While BestGrinder.net is primarily focused on the top herb grinders available regardless of price, many smokers out there are simply looking for a cheap option to grind their herb.  A cheap herb grinder may not have the craftsmanship of a better grinder, such as the Black Tie Grinder, or a Space Case, but even lower priced weed grinders will likely get the job done and provide at least a decent grind.  Another thing to look at when trying to find a cheap weed grinder is to look at finding one that is smaller sized.  Even though you may not want to spend much on your grinder we still strongly suggest you avoid acrylic grinders as they may break quickly.  Here are five solid grinders for those on a tight budget.

Golden Bell 4 Piece 2 Inch Herb Grinder

golden bell herb grinderAt less than $10 the Golden Bell Herb Grinder is a great cheap herb grinder.  Made from zinc alloy it is safe to use and durable.  This herb grinder is also offered in an assortment of colors to give your grinding experience a personal touch.  What we have noticed with the Golden Bell is that it does not collect kief like the best grinders out there, so you will not get as much bang for your buck in regard to your stash.   The Golden Bell Herb Grinder also comes with a pollen scraper.   With a 4.4 rating on Amazon this grinder should be at the top of your list.

Chromium Crusher 2.5 Inch 4 Piece Herb Grinder

chromium crusher grinderAnother cheap herb grinder priced right around the $10 range is the Chromium Crusher 2.5 Inch 4 piece herb grinder.  This grinder is about as good as it gets in the under $10 range when looking for a large sized grinder.  The zinc that the Chromium Crusher is made from is heavy duty, but is on heavier side so this is not a great choice if you want a portable grinder.  This herb grinder also comes in several different color options.  FYI, when buying on Amazon be sure to check to make sure you are getting a genuine Chromium Crusher as there are reports that knock offs are sometimes sold.

Ohuhu 4 Piece 2.38 Inch Herb Grinder

ohuhu grinderAs with most grinders on this list, the Ohuhu herb grinder is made from zinch alloy, which is cheaper to produce than aluminum but more durable than acrylic.  This grinder has a large number of teeth, 55 to be exact, to allow for a finer grind than most of the other cheap herb grinders.  There is also a magnetized lid to keep the cap in place throughout the grinding process.  Some owners have commented that the Ohuhu herb grinder has a tendency to clog with use, so take this into consideration when deciding which grinder to buy.

Smart Crusher Herb Grinder

smart crusher herb grinderAt 2.25 inches wide the Smart Crusher is a medium sized herb grinder that is very reasonably priced.  This is the only cheap herb grinder on our list that is made from aluminum, which is lighter and a superior metal compared to zinc alloy.  Many users are happy with this grinder saying that the teeth are able to grind herb to a nice fluff.  On the other hand some users feel that this grinder is built cheaper and has a tendency to break soon after purchase.  At some point it is a matter of you get what you pay for.

button (5)

 

 

Herb Grinder Original Herb Grinder

herb grinder original grayThe most expensive option on our list also has the most generic name.  The Herb Grinder Original Herb Grinder.  This aluminum weed grinder is currently priced around $15.  As a bonus this grinder comes with a free stash container, which makes this one of the best values in the grinder market.  With a 4.7 rating on Amazon you can be sure this is a quality herb grinder.  Our testing has shown that this grinder does create a nice quality grind for herbs, but is not as heavy duty as some of the more expensive aluminum herb grinders available.

button (5)

 

 

As you can see there are some decent options for grinder that are at or below the $10 price point, and not a single one is made of horrible acrylic!  While we know that an herb grinder seems like a purchase that you can go cheap on, we do recommend you seriously consider spending a bit more on a better grinder as you will get more out of your herb.  On the top of our list includes the Space Case and Black Tie Grinder, which both perform exceptionally and are much more durable than any grinder on this list.  Check them out and make a good decision for both you and your wallet!

Kingtop Herb Grinder Review

At BestGrinder.net we like to give you insight and information on the best herb grinders available on the market so that you can make the right decision for grinding your tobacco or herbs.  Herb grinders come in many different sizes, materials, and price ranges.  The Kingtop Herb Grinder that we are reviewing today has some unique characteristics and features.  Once of the more conventional features of the Kingtop Weed Grinder is its four piece design that includes a pollen catcher for the finest materials.   This has become a very popular grinder setup when compared to two piece grinders that do not offer a filtering screen and compartment.

Good Points

  • Price- Coming in at around $13 the Kingtop is likely the cheapest 3″ diameter herb grinder you will find.  Most smaller herb grinders are priced around $20 and go up all the way to over one hundred.
  • Teeth-  The 45 teeth that are found on this weed grinder are sharp and plentiful.  The more teeth help to create a fine and even grind.
  • Pollen Filter- Pollen catchers work to filter out the best most fine herb from the rest of the batch.  By doing so you can utilize the top quality herb if you want your finished product to be even better!  With the pollen filter screen you also get a scraper tool that makes working the herbs easier.
  • Warranty – Kingtop claims to give a lifetime warranty on their grinders so this would be something to check into closer if you are considering making a purchase.
  • Holes – The Kingtop has many holes in the grinding compartment which will help to minimize the amount of herbs that get stuck in the teeth.  This will keep the grinder cleaner for longer and help to get all the product through to the second compartment.

Bad Points

  • Materials- Kingtop grinders use a zinc alloy  materials which is simply inferior to the performance of aluminum grinders.  Zinc alloy is also heavier which makes Kingtop a poor choice for a portable grinder
  • Some users have complained that the grinder makes too much noise when grinding which takes away from the grinding experience
  • The filter screen is not the best we’ve seen and may break from the metal with multiple uses
  • 3″ is too large for many people.  Most herb users will only need a grinder that is 2 to 2.5 inches in diameter.  We stress at BestGrinder.net that it is better to get a high quality grinder that is smaller than a larger grinder that is junk.
    • Overall, we would suggest looking into the Black Tie Grinder or Space Case if you are serious about getting a top quality grinding machine.

How to Use a Cigarette Rolling Machine

Using a cigarette rolling machine is fairly easy.  We will focus on the full use rolling machines as they tend to be higher quality and are easy to use.  What you will do is put tobacco or herbs into the feed chamber which is usually found on the top of the machine.  Once you’ve done this you will take your cigarette paper and place it on the fill tip.

After the paper is in place and you have your herbs in the feed chamber you will pull down on a lever that will shoot the tobacco or herb into the cigarette paper.  Boom! You will have a perfect cigarette or joint that is ready to be smoked.

Pro Tip: Be sure to use a rolling tray to catch access herb that falls out of the cigarette rolling machine.

See this video for a visual breakdown of the steps:

Take Your Rolling to a New Level

With a cigarette rolling machine it takes the guess work out of rolling joints.  The beauty is once you’ve got down how to use the cigarette rolling machine you’ll get a tightly rolled cigarette or joint time after time.  Not only that but the speed at which you’ll be able to roll will increase by a large amount.

Another cool feature to many high quality electronic cigarette rolling machines is that you can fill both 100mm and king size cigarette papers with the same machine.  The only thing that will keep from rolling perfectly is running out of herbs!

The Best Cigarette Rolling Machines: Our 4 Best Picks

 

1. Top-O-Matic Cigarette Rolling Machine


Courtesy of Smoker's Outlet Online
Courtesy of Smoker’s Outlet Online

The Top-O-Matic Cigarette Rolling Machine is a highly rated machine that efficiently produces high quality cigarettes both in king size and 100mm.  We love the that this thing is a beast and is made of metal and stainless steel, not cheap ass plastic like so much stuff produced today.

Many owners also comment on how this thing has lasted many years (7 or more) and that they were so happy with the purchase that once their last one broke they bought a new one.  Similar to how we describe the cigarette rolling machine fill process above you’ll fill the chamber with tobacco or grinded herb and fill each paper one at a time.

It is important to clean the chambers on this machine to avoid jamming and wearing down over time.  If you are on the fence about this machine, also take note that the maker offers a one year manufacturers warranty.

2. Powermatic 2 PLUS Electric Cigarette Injector Machine



powermatic2Our next entry for the best cigarette rolling machine is the Powermatic 2 PLUS Electric Cigarette Injector Machine.  At around $75, the Powermatic 2 PLUS Electric Cigarette Injector Machine is more expensive than the Top-O-Matic.

The Powermatic plugs in and is a full on electric cigarette maker.  The makers of the Powermatic 2 PLUS Electric Cigarette Injector Machine state that their machine has 25% more power than other cigarette rolling machine.

The Powermatic comes with a cleaning kit to keep this machine running in tip top shape.  Electric jam protection that helps to prevent too much tobacco or herb from entering the feed chamber is a nice feature especially for those who have never used an electric cigarette rolling machine and are not sure how much herb to use.  With 81% of reviewers giving five stars to the Powermatic 2 PLUS Electric Cigarette Machine it is no wonder why this cigarette rolling machine makes our list.

3. Powermatic Mini Cigarette Injector



61zvSanZqAL._SL1000_The last entry on our list of the best cigarette rolling machines is the Powermatic Mini Cigarette Injector.  We like this rolling machine because it has some of the features of higher end cigarette rolling machines while being very light weight and portable.  Powermatic Mini Cigarette Injector can create both 100mm and king size cigs.

The Powermatic Mini is a manual machine so you have to push the slide over once you’ve pressed the lever down as you can see in the video below.  Manual cigarette rolling machines do have some advantages including that you don’t have to have power to use them making it easier to roll on the go.  With a manual cigarette rolling machine you also won’t have to worry about the power cord getting damaged which would result in the need to buy a new one.

The Powermatic Mini Cigarette Injector comes with a brush and cleaning tool so that it will last for years making you great quality cigarettes.

4. RAW 79mm Hemp Plastic Cigarette Rolling Machine

Our third entry is quite different than our last two is both price and machining.  If you are looking for a cheap cigarette maker that can still get the job done then the RAW Hemp Plastic Cigarette Rolling Machine is likely for you.  At a price point under $4 this bad boy fits anyones budget easily.

Now with a cheaper priced manual rolling machine you can expect that there are more steps to rolling a joint than with a higher priced electronic cigarette rolling machine.  And this is the case with the RAW Hemp Plastic Cigarette Rolling Machine.  You have to place your herbs in the chamber and then slide your paper between the herbs and the chamber and manually roll the chamber until the joint is completed rolled.  Check out the video below for a visual breakdown of the steps.

Sharp Shredda Herb Grinder Review

Pollen Filter

collecting the pollen out of your herb grinder can be a messy, sometimes exasperating occurrence. The Sharp Shredda’s stainless steel pollen filter promises a no mess grind, and allows the pollen to be easily removed; reviewers stated this filter created a fine pollen product, and with the included free pollen scraper, you can be sure to get every last bit out of the pollen chamber of this grinder.

Bad Points

Cleaning

due to the numerous small parts and nooks and crannies, the Sharp Shredda can be a challenge to clean, especially when resin from the herbs builds up in different places.

Price

some reviewers found the Sharp Shredda’s quality not to match its moderate pricing, comparing it more to the cheaper brands of herb grinder.

Metal shavings

Numerous reviewers complained of a low-quality product not to their liking, and metal shavings were found in various parts of the grinder.
