    Humidity Packs will correct the moisture in your herb, I find weed that sticks to the grinder can often be slightly wet or 'too fresh' which is why its so sticky.

    ISO Alcohol clean your grinder if you are finding its getting too gunked.

    It could just be the grinder your using, some gunk up more than others,

    Sound advice all the way around! Moisture in the herb has to be removed one way or the other before you can make vapor with it. Drying it before trying to grind only makes good sense to me. I put such damp herb in a open jar on top of my router (warm spot) to dry out.

    You can also put it in the freezer which will keep it from sticking but you'll still have damp herb to deal with, I suggest drying it out first........@arb is wise.

    I put mine into the grinder and leave the lid off.
    The other option is to vape full bud.
    I have yet to stuff a nug that my solo ll couldn’t fully process to the core!
    Just make sure you leave some voids for the air flow.

    I'd recommend using something softer than steel such as a guitar pick to avoid chipping your grinder.

    Let the bud dry or load less into the grinder at once.

    It's not so sticky icky when it's thoroughly dried. Don't even think about grinding unless your buds are dried out all the way.

    Just break it up and set it on a warm plat to dry out the day before grinding/using.
