A Volcano vaporizer without an herb grinder, is like a car without gas. Proper grinding of the herb prior to vaporizing is crucial; whether your are using a Volcano, a Vapir or a Vapor Brothers Vaporizer – grind your herb!
How much to grind the herb? Very fine, but not so fine it falls thru the screen! The more surface area your create by grinding, the more active ingredients the heat can release. You cannot prepare the herb effectively without a grinder. I recommend a dedicated herb grinder for your Volcano vaporizer.
Grind again? Sure why not. If you start with sticky herb that has some moisture you will only be able to get the grind so fine. After a few pulls or bag fillings, the herb will dry out – making it easier to grind fine for vaporizing.

Wood Herb Grinders – The restored classic car of herb grinders. Nice to look at, and usually lightweight – but not practical for heavy use in my experience. Wood can warp, shrink and expand, making the grinder hard to turn. Great deals on wood herb grinders here.
No Grinder – Use your fingers, chop with a razor blade, cut up with scissors. But whatever your do – don’t plop a whole bud in and expect results!
