If you are looking for grinder for weed, herb and marijuana, you would come across a lot of varieties in the market. However, not all the grinders are safe, non-toxic and durable. It is always better to visit an online store and check out the range before finalising one. Don’t get tempted to buy the cheap variety that you can easily pick up from one of the gas stations.
Grinders and Their Types:
Herb grinder is basically a small instrument that has teeth to grind marijuana, tobacco and other such herbs. It can be made of wood, acrylic, plastic or metal.
If you visit an online store to search for such grinders, you will find that there are 3 different types of grinders available:
- The 2-piece grinder or 1-companrtment grinder has one compartment only where you place the herb and its ground. This is the simplest form of grinder. This grinder is not very effective because the grinding is not even and it is also difficult to retrieve the ground herb neatly from between the teeth of the grinder.
- The 3-piece or 2-compartment grinder has small holes at the bottom of the grinding compartment through which the herb that has been ground to the right size will fall through. You can then retrieve ground herb from that compartment. This is more convenient and better than the 1-compartment grinder.
- The 4-piece grinder or 3-compartment grinder has another compartment that is separated by a fine screen. This grinder is very effective, if you are planning to grind pollen, marijuana or kief.
The price does not depend on the number of compartments in the grinder, but on the actual size and material used in the grinder. So, you can look at the one that is more convenient and serves your purpose before finalising the grinder.
Best Grinders in the Market:
Although there are lots of different brands of grinders available in the market and people have their own preferences, but some of the best grinders are the Chromium Crusher, Golden Gate and Space Case. These are the best because of their durability, looks, quality of grinding and price.
Chromium Crusher Zinc 2.5” is a 4-piece grinder that is made out of aluminum. Aluminum makes this crusher heavy and sturdy. It has big and sharp teeth that make fine grinding possible. You can grind both large and small quantities of herb in this grinder. However, owing to aluminum being used in its making, it is slightly heavy to carry while travelling. This is an ideal table top grinder for your home.
Golden Gate grinder is specially made for heavy grinding. It is also used by medical marijuana patients. The teeth of this grinder are dull trapezoid shaped instead of sharp. This makes it possible to get really fluffy and evenly ground the herbs. This grinder has such a wonderful grip that people of all age groups can use it easily. Its lid has a triple sealing mechanism with a strong magnetic function. This grinder is on a slightly expensive side, but owing to its quality of grinding and durability, it is one of the best grinders that you can get in the market.
Space Case 4-piece grinder is considered the best in high quality grinders. It is made of anodized aluminum that makes it smooth and durable. It also contains a good quality, fine pollen screen. As compared to the Chromium Crusher, this grinder is much lighter and comes in a carry pouch that makes it easy to carry while travelling.
Based on your requirements, you can choose any of these 3 grinders. Each of these grinders is of high quality, durable and gives consistent grinding.
