Probably the most important factor to consider once you’ve got the perfect herb grinder is to figure out how to make it last as long as possible.  The key to keeping an herb grinder in tip top shape really comes down to regular cleanings.

If you use your grinder on a regular basis like we do, then you know that over time kief and residue can gunk up your grinder in its teeth and grooves.  Getting this material off your grinder will get it back to running like new.

Once You Get Your Grinder, Clean It

When you get your metal herb grinder the first thing you are going to want to do is clean it.  This is because the grinder can have some dirt and metal pieces left over from the manufacturing process and you do not want to smoke this stuff!

To initially clean your grinder unscrew each piece and set each piece out over a paper towel.  Shake out each piece of the grinder to get any loose metal shavings out.  After shaking, use rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl alcohol) and a Q-tip to get in between the teeth and screw grooves.

After cleaning with the Q-tip and rubbing alcohol rinse in warm water and allow the grinder to air dry.

Cleaning the Grinder After Use

Over time your grinder will collect residue and gunk from herb, which will cause your grinder to get stuck, squeak, and ultimately not work as well as it did when you first got it.  At this point it is time to give your herb grinder a quality cleaning so you can bring it back to grinding like new.

Step 1:

Take apart your grinder and place each piece into a freezer safe container, place the bag into the freezer, and wait for an hour.

Step 2:

Take out the bag with your grinder inside out of the freezer and place each piece over a cookie sheet.  Tap each grinder piece to knock loose the frozen residue and kief onto the cookie sheet.

Step 3:

Use a toothbrush to brush out the residue on to the cookie sheet so that you can save the sweet kief for your next joint.

Step 4:

You have a couple options with step 4.  You can either wash the grinder under warm water with soap, or you can soak the grinder in rubbing alcohol for 30 minutes to an hour depending on how thorough of a clean you want.

Summary

There you have it.  Following our simple four step directions you can get your grinder clean any time.  This will go a long way to preserving your grinder and keeping it in working order for years to come.  Please remember that while cleaning your grinder is important, it is just as important to make sure to buy a quality grinder with top of line materials to begin with.  Cleaning a subpar grinder might help, but it will not solve the main issue of having a crappy grinder.  Hope this guide helps, if you have questions let us know in the comments!

Okay, your stoned, now what?  The truth is it’s easy to find yourself in this situation.  And making decisions once your stoned may not be the best idea.  So, check out this list and you’ll have plenty of things to try out the next time you smoke.

1. Have Sex

Oh, this is the best!  I don’t know how cannabis can make something that feels as good as sex feel better, but it does!  Fellas, you may also notice that you last longer and have more control when you are high too, which we’re guessing won’t be something your lady will complain about.

2. Watch A Movie

Watching a movie while stoned is a classic activity.  We suggest you pick a lighthearted comedy such as Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back or Ted.  Also, don’t shut the door on indie or documentary films as you can explore your mind and consciousness.  FYI, Darker movies can sometimes put you in a bad mood.

3. Listen to Music12656775_l

Another cliche activity, but it is cliche for a reason, because it is awesome!  Make sure to find music that can put you in that deep space where only your mind and the universe exists.  Psychedelic, jam, and electronic music are three go to choices that will get you there.

4. Meditate

Meditation has been shown to have all kinds of positive effects on both the mind and body.  While meditation is something that every one should be doing regularly, it can become a bit stale.  However, when you add weed to the mix things get a whole lot more interesting.  Allowing your thoughts to just flow and be without judgement or preconceived notions is one of the most liberating experiences one can have.

5. Eat New Foods

It is no secret that marijuana enhances the senses.  It is also not a secret that marijuana will make you mega hungry for some food.

But let’s go beyond the typical Taco Bell and gummy bears and look for something more.  Something better.  Go out to eat and have ethnic food you’ve never had before, or pick up something from the grocery store that sounds interesting.  Get out of your comfort zone and enjoy!

6. Have a Great Conversation

Are you a conspiracy buff? Have you wondered about the existence of god or aliens?  The perfect time to talk about these topics is when you are high.  Seriously, find a like-minded individual and go nuts with these hypothetic and existential questions.  Prepare to have your mind blown!

7. Exercise

Working out when high is one of the more underrated experiences.  This is probably because most people have the idea that people who like weed are lazy.  While some of us certainly fit this mold, that is not the cause for everyone.

Research has actually shown that cannabis improves pulmonary functioning, which means you might find you have more stamina and energy during your workout.

It’s simple, exercising with cannabis is awesome.

8. Go To The Mall

The mall is great for people watching, and people watching is fun with cannabis.  Just find a nice bench, take a seat, and let the magic happen!  You’ll find yourself observing those around you and also laughing at the craziness that is humanity.
