What Is A Grinder?

A grinder is a small device made of acrylic, wood or metal with "teeth" that you can use to grind up dry herbs and other small plant material. 

Using a Grinder vs. Your Fingers

Using your fingers to grind up your herb, can lead to the loss of THC crystals on your fingers. Additionally, you’ll also tarnish some of the resins left on the bud that you’ve been touching with the oil on your skin.

Using a grinder means that you can retain all the THC crystals and avoid damage to your dry herb. 

The Difference Between 1, 2, and 3 Compartment Grinders

1.Compartment Grinders

In one-compartment grinders, also known as two-piece grinders, there is only one compartment where the herb is placed, ground, and retrieved. 

Things to Consider:
The ground herb's size may be inconsistent
Retrieving the herb can be difficult because you have to scoop it out around the compartments teeth

2 Compartment Grinders

Also called three-piece grinders, 2 compartment grinders consist of the same components as the 1 piece grinder; however, the bottom of the component has small holes leading to another compartment. These holes allow only certain sized herbs to fall through, resulting in the retrieval of a more evenly ground herb.

Things to Consider:
Since all the herbs are in the second compartment are considered "finished", retrieving the herb is much simpler than with a 1-compartment grinder.

3 Compartment Grinders 

Three compartment grinders also described as four piece grinders, contain the same components as the 2-compartment grinder with the addition of the third compartment with a fine screen that separates it from the 2nd compartment. This 3rd compartment is for pollen or if you are grinding marijuana, kief.

Things to Consider:
Kief on its own is more potent than traditional flower
Placing a quarter into your grinder will help to increase your collection of kief

Grinder Materials

Acrylic Grinders
Acrylic is the cheapest material for a grinder; however, they do not last long. Sometimes, small parts of acrylic will get into and contaminate your herb if you aren’t careful.

Wood Grinders
For a wood grinder to be effective, it must be made out of raw wood.
These grinders are very good looking but, because they must be carved, they are usually only available in 1-compartment grinders. Note: Make sure the inside of the grinder is not finished. Paint or any other finishing can get in and contaminate your herb. Additionally, the teeth on wood grinders are not as good as metal grinders. Sometimes, the teeth are nothing more than nails.

Metal Grinders
Metal grinders are the best in terms of durability, sharpness, and quality. Most metal herb grinders are made of aluminum and some have a thin titanium coating.
