Hey, I have never thought of himself as a newbie but recently he has seen and heard about some cool gizmos that I have no idea how to use! First some background... I smoked casualy with some friends for like 2 years. SWIM's friends hate SWIM now (long, LONG story) so I have new friends. SWIM's new friends just started smoking pot (< 6 months). They all turn to this SWIM fellow as the resident pro but I am just now noticing how nooby me's last group of friends were and thus how noobish he himself must be. Here are some questions (I am asking them on I's behalf) Also, before I get yelled at for not UTFSE... I did. I used Google, Wikipedia, and Urban dictionary. What is a grinder/presser/keef box??? A mutual friend of SWIM and SWIM's new friends (henceforth known as The Group) was bragging about his Grinder and how great it is at producing Keef (?). The Group just smiled at this guy and agree'd with him but The Group was just smiling and nodding because The Group didn't really know what he was talking about. From SWIM's research I have concluded that a grinder is used to grind pot into a fine dust which is effectivly concetrated THC. A presser is used to press the grinded material into a more smokeable substance (without a presser a person could only sprinkle this fine dust on top say a bowl). Also, I have determined that Keef is either the name of the grinded stuff post pressing OR it's the name of some kind of box where people keep the last dregs of their stash. Clearly, I'm missing something. Are these things (grinders, etc) worth buying? Will SWIM get higher? Is it a way to have to buy less because it lasts longer? Also, I have some questions about different methods of smoking. I have a Bong and a pipe. They work fine for SWIM and The Group. SWIM and The Group would appreciate advice on other methods of smoking. For example, I did some Google searches and found a bunch of confusing stuff. What are the pros/cons of: Vaporizers Gravity Bongs The Bukket (a type of waterless G Bong) Columbian Bongs (I think this is the proper name for the multi chamber bongs) Etc... I have the money so I would like to make sure SWIM and The Group have the best paraphernalia. Because The Group would like to ensure that The Group always has fun and gets the most bang for their buck. If you or You have any information that would be awesome!
