Marley Natural is a premium product line crafted with a genuine respect for nature, all products in their range are responsibly sourced. They are inspired by Jamaica and are the official Bob Marley brand, now run by his family. I am starting to accumulate quite the collection of products from Marley Natural and they are by far one of my favourite brands for premium connoisseur level products. Beautiful trays, glass filter tips, crystal ashtrays, wooden storage boxes and hemp-based skincare. Now I can happily add their eye wateringly amazing wooden grinders to my range. To say that I am obsessed is a little of an understatement! I will be giving myself one as a Christmas present this year.
GLASS AND BLACK WALNUT WOOD COLLECTION
The Marley Natural Glass and Walnut Wood range of products is all about crafting classic collectors’ items to elevate your smoking regime. Each piece is made with Black Walnut Wood and borosilicate glass (if glass is used). Black Walnut Wood is the signature wood that Marley Natural uses for all their wooden needs. A further and kind of cool feature of this range is the ability to remove the wooden portions from the glass, brilliant for cleaning!
Where should I start, functionality or aesthetics? Lets get the looks out of the way. A drop-dead gorgeous grinder that is currently battling with Kannastor for supremacy on my store shelves! This is a rather large grinder that comes apart into 4 pieces for easy cleaning. Each layer of this grinder is made to the absolute highest standards and its pretty obvious once you start taking it apart. This is a collectors item and in my opinion, you will want to keep this grinder forever!
The body is made from the favourite wood of the Marlery Natural brand, black walnut and if you buy a rolling tray you can have a matching set. As the daughter of a carpenter I can attest to the incredible beauty of this type of wood. Black walnut is prized highly for its strength, grain and colour. It polishes to a very smooth finish and will develop a lustrous patina over time. The walnut that Marley Natural use is also sustainably sourced.
The top lid is magnetic and has the Marley Natural Logo etched into it. The magnet is fairly strong, and I had to grip and pull to release the lid. Lift off the lid and you will see the 27 custom engineered black teeth (well spaced) made from anodized aluminium. Weirdly shaped teeth, unlike the standard diamond shaped teeth of most grinders. Designed to give you 2 separate grind options.
- Turn continuously and you will produce volume and texture (fluffier)
- Turn back and forth for when you desire a finer grind.
Whichever method you chose your material will drop down into the clear, shatterproof polycarbonate storage zone below. No magnet this time, you will need to unscrew this portion. As storage areas go, this one is massive and will allow you to grind up a lot in advance.
TIP: Just keep in mind that I tend to not recommend that you leave ground up material unused for long portions of time as the potency will be affected. Particularly if sunlight is present.
A fine mesh screen separates the storage zone from the bottom portion, with a handle (on the base of screen) for easy handling. This last zone is where kief is collected. In a nutshell, kief (AKA Pollen) refers to the resinous trichomes of the cannabis plant (they form on the leaves and buds) and contains a powerhouse of cannabinoids and terpenes. A sticky powder-like crystal that can produce an intense high. Check this area of your grinder regularly to check if any powder like substance has accumulated below. The bottom lid is magnetised just like the top lid but with 6 (!) magnets holding it in place.
Marley Natural has once again done that thing that they like to do with scrapers and magnets. Just like on their rolling trays they have incorporated a magnet into the base where you can affix the stainless-steel scraper. Once in place this scraper sits absolutely flush along the base. Super sleek design!
