Choosing the right weed grinder comes down to a few key considerations. Quality, material and components are the most important things you will need to take into account when making your choice. Ultimately, the decision will come down to how often you use the grinder, whether you smoke blunts or vape and your general preferences. Wondering what to look for in a weed grinder? Let’s take a look.
Choosing a Weed Grinder
Your choice of weed grinder will very likely come down to one or more of the following factors:
This should be the first thing you look at and also the deciding factor. A poor quality grinder might do the job for a little while, but it will not continue to work well. You may have to frequently open it and remove bits of stuck weed. You may find that the grinding mechanism weakens or sticks over time and you may generally find yourself getting frustrated after a few uses. This is why it’s best to avoid very cheap, poorly made grinders.
Grinders come in various materials. Wooden grinders are a classic choice, with a variety of styles and sizes to choose from. A carved wood grinder will see you through a long time if it is cleaned well. Metal grinders are easy to clean and will last a very long time. Acrylic grinders will also get the job done, even if they may not last as long as metal or wood.
There are a few different types of grinders when it comes to compartments. Simple two-piece grinders have one compartment that grinds and collects herb. Bits can get caught between teeth and there is no added storage offered with single compartment grinders. Three-piece grinders have holes in the first compartment that let smaller pieces fall into the second compartment. You can also collect your herb in the second compartment. Four-piece grinders have three compartments - for buds, for ground weed and for pollen or kief.
When making your selection, think about these factors and it should be easier to choose your weed grinder.
