The Best Ways to Break up Your Cannabis Without a Grinder

Grind Your Cannabis Buds Without a Grinder

There is no doubt that having a grinder can ease up things a lot. But using it is not the only way to break up your cannabis buds. And today, we are going to learn about the best ways to grind cannabis without a grinder.

Cannabis has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. More and more people are now using cannabis for recreational and medical purposes. A medical marijuana card in Long Beach allows you to buy medical cannabis for your condition. And smoking cannabis is one of the oldest ways to consume cannabis. Every cannabis smoker wants to have the best smoking session. To achieve this goal, you have to prepare everything for it. What if you are ready to smoke up but can’t find your grinder to grind your buds. This can surely put you off. Don’t worry, this is not the only way to grind your buds. There are many ways in which you can break up your buds without the help of a grinder. Here is a list of some of the best methods to do that. So, without any further ado, let’s get into it.

Your Hands

Let’s get back to the basics! One of the oldest and most traditional ways to break up your cannabis is with your hands. Forget about the grinder and start picking at it with your fingers. You do not have to do too much. Simply make a bowl-like shape with your one hand, and start breaking up your buds with the other one.

The whole experience is intrinsically rewarding, but it does have a few downsides. Well, it can be a bit tedious when you are breaking up sticky cannabis with your fingers. Talk about “getting your hands dirty.” There will be resin building up around your hand when you break up cannabis with them. But you can turn this downside to your advantage. Use the resin building around your hand to get some extra kick. Use a credit card or keys to scrape off the resin and then smoke it in a bong or joint. Let me tell you something, this is a traditional way of making hash. 

Breaking your cannabis using your fingers also gives you a chance to get close to the structure of your buds. This provides you an opportunity to get personal with the unique aroma of your strain.

Use Parchment Paper

If you are not willing to break your buds with your hands and get them dirty, use parchment paper. You can use the pieces of parchment paper as a barrier between your buds and hands. This way you will not have to worry about scraping off the sticky and aromatic resin from your hands afterward.

While you can use any other paper products for this method, I would suggest using parchment paper. Parchment paper has a waxy surface that helps in keeping everything from sticking. Put a few small pieces of parchment paper between your fingers before you start picking them apart.

A Coin And Container

This is my personal favorite! For this method, you just need a coin and a solid container. The ideal choice for the container would be prescription bottles and breath mint tins. 

Just put your cannabis inside the solid container, then drop a clean coin inside it as well. Then you have to give the container a good shake. As the coin thrash around inside the container, it will tear through your buds. This method is great for dense and sticky buds.

A Coffee Grinder

So what if you don’t have a cannabis grinder, a coffee grinder can help you. Put your cannabis inside the coffee grinder and grind it just as you would grind coffee beans. In the end, you will need a credit card or a key to collect all the resin that may build up inside the grinder. Do not forget to wash and dry the coffee grinder before and after you use it. 

This method is perfect if you have a large quantity of cannabis with you to grind.
