Why Do Stoners Love The Kief Catcher When it Comes To Their Grinders?

For stoners that grind weed on the regular, should be pretty familiar with kief. For those of you who don't know what this is, this is the fine powder that is made out of the trichomes or the dried resin glands that are found on the cannabis leaves. It happens to contain a high concentration of THC, a psychoactive chemical and when inhaled, it gives off euphoric feelings.

Stoners love this special substance for a few reasons, but mainly because it gives you an extra buzz than just smoking weed on it's own and it's considered not wasteful. It's quality would depend on the type of marijuana that is being used and with the effects that it is expected to have upon the user, it is not a surprise to see more and more stoners actually preferring to have this catcher feature on the weed grinders that they purchase from the market.

But what is kief catching all about and how does it all work exactly?

This article explains everything you need to know about this fine art and honestly as soon as you find out how easy it is to obtain, we guarantee that you will be looking for this feature in your next crusher. ​


Collecting Kief

There are a number of ways that this pollen can be collected. In the event that one needs larger amounts, this can be done by getting the leaves rubbed over a mesh of stainless steel screens. It can also be done by getting the branches shook and then holding something to catch them.

For those that only require them in smaller amounts, this special feature on a herb grinder can be used for this very purpose. These shredders have a special compartment at the bottom where the kief can be collected. This has become a very sought out feature for people when they look for crushers because without it the substance will only likely end up getting wasted. Breaking the leaves using your hands is not very advised since this will only cause the stuff to just stick to the hands and ultimately cause you to lose it in the process.
