Unfortunately, weed grinders need to be cleaned for everything to go smoothly. After a few months of continuous use, your grinder will be coated in sticky resin. As a result, grinding will become a more difficult task. Once it is too gunked up, it might not twist. If you don’t have a high-end grinder, the teeth may break in a sticky situation. So, it’s important to clean your grinder every once in a while. We’ll go into detail on how you can clean your grinder while saving your precious kief.
Freezing your grinder for 15 to 30 minutes can make extracting stuck kief a lot easier. First, put your grinder in a freezer safe container and leave it in the freezer for about a half hour. Then, take it out and slam the grinder onto a hard flat surface like a table multiple times.
When you’ve given a few good slams, most of your kief will fall to the bottom chamber. For any kief that didn’t find it’s way to the bottom, scraping the remaining kief off after freezing should be easy.
Freezing makes the kief goes from soft and sticky to brittle. You’ll be surprised by the amount of extra kief you get from this method. Once you’re all done check our article on 4 great ways to make use of all that kief.
