How To Get Maximum Kief From Your Grinder

How do you get the delicious kief that lodges between the teeth of your grinder, sticks to the walls, and is generally a pain in the butt to get out?

From the last bit of peanut butter to the dregs of laundry soap, getting a container empty is a pain. If you grind your own herb, you have surely had this dilemma. The delicious kief that you collect doesn’t want to fall out. It lodges between the teeth of your grinder, sticks to the walls, and generally makes it a pain in the butt to get every last bit out. You don’t want to just wash it, that defeats the purpose of saving it in the first place. So how do you do it? Simple, with this little secret from LeaferBag.

Step 1. Coin

Empty what already can be emptied. Find a coin that will fit easily inside the middle chamber, where your ground weed ends up. Depending on your grinder size, this could be anywhere from a dime to a silver dollar. Make sure it has room to move around.

Step 2. Chill

Reassemble your grinder and put it in the refrigerator. You don’t want a lot of moisture, but you want it pretty cold.

Step 3. Wait

Wait 20 to thirty minutes, depending on the size of your grinder and how cold your refrigerator is.

Step 4. Shake

Shake the bejeezus out of the grinder. Pretend you have maracas and there’s a party.

Step 5. Claim your prize

The cold will reduce the sticky factor on your herb, and loosen it from the metal grinder. The coin acts as a jackhammer, vibrating the kief off the walls with each impact. Open your grinder, remove the coin, and then see how much more kief you have in your collection chamber.
