Weed Grinders

Weed grinders, or Herb grinders, are an essential accessory for any frequent smoker of dry herbs. 

Whether packing a bowl on a Lookah bong, loading a spoon pipe, or rolling up, having a consistent grind enhances your smoking experience. 

If you tear herbs apart by hand or use scissors, the resinous parts of the plant will stick to your hands. Not only will that make a mess, but it will also reduce your weed's potency. You're also liable to lose bits of weed as they ping out of the scissors or get dropped down the side of the sofa. 

If you use a grinder, every part of the herb is kept inside the chamber, so there is no waste. Many grinders have a sieve so the kief can be collected separately. 

Why Use a Herb Grinder?

Many people won't bother with a herb grinder when smoking dry herbs. But if you smoke frequently, grinders make life so much easier. The time saved alone is worth the investment. Using a grinder for weed means you can do in seconds what would take several minutes to do by hand. 

Grinders separate the herb to a standard size, which allows for better-packed bowls and rolled smokes with an even airflow. 

With each granule of herb the same size, each gets burnt at the same rate, so you don't lose potency and have smoother smoke. 

How Do Weed Grinders Work?

Most herb shredders are made from steel and have multiple pieces that connect to create a grinding chamber and a secondary chamber for storage. 

The grinding space consists of opposing teeth that fit together in a mesh. 

The herb's nugs are placed here, and when the two sides are rotated, the teeth slice through the herb. 

A number of holes between the teeth allow the ground-up herb to be collected into the storage chamber. 

Different Types Of Grinders

Grinders for weed usually come in two parts - a top and a bottom part. The grinding process occurs between these two parts and is facilitated by teeth or nails that shred the material. 

Knowing what kind of device to buy can be daunting with so many sizes and materials. When it comes to cannabis grinders, you can usually find them in plastic, metal, or wood. While each material has a different texture, they all serve the same purpose. The most common shape for grinders is puck-shaped, but crank grinders have a handle to turn the cutting plate inside. Electric weed grinders are a great option for those who lack strength or dexterity in their hands despite being larger. 

There are three different types of grinders: 

The two-layer (single chamber) grinders.

Three-layer (two-chamber) grinders.

Four-layer (three-chamber) grinders

Although the names of these grinders may be confusing, they are all explained below.

Two-layer grinders (Single chamber)

The two-piece single-chamber grinder is a compact device with a small, disc-shaped bowl, which is about the same size as a hockey puck, if not a little smaller. This bowl serves as the primary chamber for the grinding process. In addition to the bowl, the grinder also has a lid. When the lid is secured over the bowl, it creates a single chamber that's perfect for grinding herbs and spices with precision and ease. As such, this grinder is called a "two-piece" grinder, as it consists of just two components: the bowl and the lid.

Three-layer grinders (two-chamber)

Let's explore the anatomy of a three-piece, two-chamber grinder. To begin with, picture a standard two-piece grinder that consists of a lid and a grinding bowl. Now, add a third piece, which is located below the grinding chamber. This additional piece creates a collection chamber where the ground buds are gathered after the grinding process. 

Starting from the top, the lid is engineered with teeth or nails that assist in the grinding of the buds. Moving onto the grinding chamber, it also features teeth or nails that help break down the buds into smaller pieces. However, in a three-piece grinder, you will notice that there are holes in the base of the grinding chamber that allow the ground buds to fall through. When the buds are ground to a size smaller than the holes in the bottom of the grinding chamber, they fall through the holes and into the collection chamber located below. Once the grinding process is complete, you can remove this bottom chamber and collect the ground buds for use. 

To summarize, a three-piece, two-chamber grinder comprises a lid, a grinding bowl, and a collection chamber, making it an efficient tool for breaking down buds into smaller pieces and collecting them for use.

Four-layer grinders (three-chamber)

four-piece grinder comprises of three chambers - the lid, grinding bowl, collection chamber/screen, and the Kief catcher. The collection chamber is divided into two parts by a small mesh screen, with the Kief catcher below it. When you grind marijuana, the larger but still ground pieces fall into the collection chamber. As you continue to grind, the tiny pollen-like powder from the marijuana falls through the mesh screen into the chamber at the bottom, which is called the Kief chamber. To sum up the components of a four-piece grinder, they include the lid, grinding bowl, collection chamber/screen, and the Kief chamber - totaling four pieces and three chambers. Now that you know about the different types of herb grinders and their associated parts, let's dive into how to use the cannabis shredder.

How to Choose the Best Weed Grinder

If you want a simple grinder that does the job and nothing more, pick up a 2 piece grinder. These are the OG of grinders and are very affordable. 

Level up a layer and get a multi-piece grinder. These grinders have extra storage for your weed. 

The next level of grinder is the 4-layer grinder. These have a mesh screen to help separate your kief from the ground herb. 

The next level up from manual grinders is electric grinders. These are all-singing, all-dancing gizmos that can shred your weed at the touch of a button. Electric grinders are great if you want a sturdy device for use at home. They are also a lifesaver for those with dexterity difficulties who may not easily use a manual grinder. 

Material: You want a grinder that will last. herb grinders can be made of many materials, but wood, plastic, and metal are the most popular options. 

Wooden grinders have a nice natural aesthetic feel to them. 

Plastic grinders are lightweight and also relatively cheap. 

Metal grinders made from stainless steel or aluminum alloy may cost a little more, but they are easier to clean and should last a long time. 

However, a grinder is more than just a fancy container for your weed. The most important part of any herb grinder is the teeth. 

Many will have diamond-shaped metal teeth that are efficient for slicing weed rather than crushing pot. These razor-sharp teeth are important for slicing and dicing the bulkiest nuggets. 

Wide teeth will also allow your device to fluff the weed while grinding it rather than crushing the weed. 

Size:  The larger your grinder is, the more weed you can load and grind at any time. Grinders typically start around 60mm or 2.5 inches.

Style: Grinders come in many styles, from Star Wars themed grinders to novelty watch grinders.
