But what is a grinder?

The Dutch grinder is an accessory designed to grind (or grind) CBD flowers. The grinder is easy to use and fits in the hand. It consists of "teeth" that chop up the material before it is rolled and smoked. The grinder comes in several versions but the principle of operation remains the same.

How do I use my grinder?

Whether manual or electric, the grinder works the same way. It opens and contains a part that holds the tobacco, CBD or spices. The second part (the lid) is for you to touch from left to right to operate the grinder. Some models called "polinator" have a lower part as a collecting tray to collect fine particles, pollen.
