What is the best grinder for vaping?
Often we are asked what the best grinder for vaping is. In order to be suitable for vaping, the grinder must produce a very fine grind. This is only able to be done with grinders which have many sharp teeth, which is something the Golden Gate Grinder has with its 49 diamond shaped razor sharp teeth which cut through the herb to produce a fine consistency ideal for vaping. A fine grind results in the active ingredients of the marijuana being released making the marijuana more potent. Although be careful not to grind the marijuana too much because if it is too powdery, the hot air of the vaporizer will push the marijuana through the heating compartment without vaporizing.
So what is vaping?
Vaping has become very popular around the world as the demise of conventional cigarettes continues. For example, the UK has banned smoking in public places which means people need to get their nicotine fix from some other source. Vaping is intended for current adult smokers that wish to continue taking in nicotine with a reduction in the negative consequences of using cigarettes.
Vaping sometimes uses a Propylene Glycol, which is used with some small amounts of nicotine and flavouring of the user’s choice which then gets vaporized in a small battery powered atomizer. This simulates the experience of smoking. The vapor produced is then inhaled and exhaled much like cigarette smoke.
But more and more, smokers are using vaping with marijuana which allows the user to inhale THC. A marijuana vaporizer machine heats the marijuana up to 350-400 degrees fahrenheit. This releases the psychoactive element tetrahydrocannabinol which evaporates and can then be inhaled.
If you are wondering what is the best kind of vaporizer to purchase, we’d recommend either buying dry herb vaporizers or wax vaporizers.
Why is the Golden Gate Grinder perfect for vaping?
It is important to choose a grinder which has many compartments. The Golden Gate Grinder comes with four separate compartments which allow separation. The best grinder for vaping should have a bottom compartment which allows the collection of the fine grind, which is offered by our grinder.
Also, the grinder should be aluminium based. If you use a plastic grinder, tiny little particles of plastic will become contaminated with your marijuana and you could end up vaping plastic which could be carcinogenic. So for the sake of your health, please do not use a plastic grinder when vaping for the sake of saving a few dollars.
Is vaping marijuana safe?
There have been a lot of studies conducted by many of the top universities around the world about the usage of vaporizers with marijuana and the majority of these thesis’ have found that nearly all of the dangerous components were substantially reduced or even eliminated by vaping instead of smoking marijuana. But one thing I should draw your attention to is that the tar concentration in the vapor can be about ten times higher than the concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol. Obviously, this is not safe but there is a fine balancing act with the benefits of vaping the marijuana and the drawbacks of using it longterm. Please consult your physician before use.
