Electric Grinders- The Best Way to Grind Herb

When grinding your cannabis, it’s important to remember the importance of a good grind – a poor quality grind can lead to a loss of oils, crystals, flavour, and potency. A good quality grind comes from a good quality grinder. The problem with finding a good grinder is that people tend to get in a bit of a habitual rut: they find something that works just okay, and they never deviate. This is why grinding needs are often forgotten and never re-evaluated by many.


When most people start out with grinding, they buy a simple manual grinder. These consist of two (or more) plates with pillar-shaped blades. When turned against each other, the plates grind the herb in a relatively effective way. Unfortunately, manual grinders nearly always provide an inconsistent grind due to several factors: too much or too little bud, the number of rotations, the speed of the rotations, and user error. Frequently, trying to transfer your ground herb results in spillage and subsequent wastage. While a manual grinder can get the job done, it leaves much to be desired from anyone looking for a high-quality experience. When using a manual grinder, you must use two hands, which is often difficult for those with dexterity challenges or limited mobility – and those medicinal users are often turning to cannabis as an effective pain reliever.


Electric grinders are easier and faster to use than manual grinders. However, many poor-quality electric cannabis grinders leave much to be desired as well. The battery life can be inconsistent (imagine the devastation of your grinder just stopping and needing to be recharged mid session!), and the spillage problem still exists. Many electric grinders, despite a hefty price tag, will jam from too much bud, insufficient bud, or seemingly no cause at all. With inconsistent power comes an inconsistent grind, leading to all the same issues as a manual grinder (but for more money). Notably, most electric grinders still require a two-handed operation when it comes time to disassemble the grinder in order to transfer the ground bud to the desired receptacle. Electric grinders tend to be better than manual grinders, however, it is important to make sure you find a quality electric grinder that isn’t going to cost you an arm and a leg.
