However, if you keep your unit clean, you won’t have problems with it getting stuck. I had one a long time ago that I had to throw away because I couldn’t get my weed out and had to smash it with a hammer, lucky it was a cheap gas station grinder.

Isopropyl alcohol, is 99% alcohol and it’s not toxic one it evaporates, and it does that pretty fast, you can accelerate the evaporation using a hair dryer. You will also need a zip lock bag in which you will pour a bit of alcohol and then put your grinder inside.

Oven Bags (Turkey Bags)
Yes, you heard it right; the term Turkey Bags is synonym with cannabis storing, accordingly to the Urban Dictionary. This method is one of the best at keeping your herbs from drying same as it does the same thing to meat while in the oven.

Weed grinder lubricant
I know that it sometimes sucks when you have an older weed grinder, and it gets stuck and you can’t open it. I know because I’ve been there, one of the main reasons I’ve started the Best Grinder HQ was to help people overcome these obstacles. What better-weed grinder lubricant do you everybody has in their kitchens than olive oil.
Pour some on your finger or use an ear sticks and go round the grinder’s edges. Don’t worry it won’t affect the quality of the weed because it won’t touch it.
