    What's the purpose of putting a coin in the chamber of your grinder that the bud falls into? I've heard it helps get you more keif...is that true?

    Basically all it does is moves across the screen so that more of the kief will fall through. A lot of times the kief will stay on top of the screen but if you put a coin in it will slide across the screen which makes the kief fall. The type of grinder definitely plays a role in whether you can do it or not. I'm not positive but I would think you would have to have at least a 4 piece grinder for it to work, at least I know my 3 piece wouldn't work. At the very least it won't hurt anything so give it a try and see if there is a difference.

    No problem. Personally I would start out with a penny or a dime, something that is small and won't take up too much space.

    Yup... just there to increase keif production. Helps force keif off the bud and through the screen.

    I threw a penny in my grinder and havent been happier. After I grind my bud I shake my grinder around to get as much kief as I can. Have followed this method and have plenty, plenty, plenty of buildup :chokin:

    If you don't use something on the screen to knock loose some kief, there won't be much to collect. I use a dime, or something even smaller in a small grinder, and shake it quite a bit.

    Screen do get clogged, but you can un-clog them just by hitting the screen on a table or something. Using a coin deminishes the purpose of catching kief. The fact is the screens are those size microns for a reason. If you put a coin in there you will push through more crap and the hash you get out of it isn't as pur as it should be.

    You will notice that it doesn't get as sticky, or doesn't hold together well. It may even only last a few tokes in a vape, because you pushed more crap than kief.

    how does using a coin deminish the kief process bro, wouldn't it actually hlep you get kief, granted it might not be sticky, its still kief, and still potent as all fuck, lol i suggest putting kieff in a bong, tastes better

    Umm - perhaps you haven't found out yet, but the ingredient in Kief that gets you stoned are the resin stalks that fall off the bud, and through the screen. If you push more crap through it, you are only pushing inhert matter, not resin stalks.

    And I suggest you look up what Vaporizers are - as your suggestion is backwards....

    The coin helps push more resin through, not just plant matter. It DOES help you collect more.

    It only pushes through what is clogged in the screen - and you will find it isnt pushing anything at all, it merely creates a vibration that makes what-ever is clogged fall into the chamber. You can achieve this by scraping somthing metal over the screen to create the same vibration.

    The screens micron size still gets plant matter in there. REmember, the less plant matter the more potent.
