How Do I Buy A Grinder?


V Grinder- 3 Part

Marijuana vaping should be simple.  Get weed, put weed in vaporizer, hit button, and enjoy.

Like all things in life the choices vary from simple to more advanced.  An herb grinder comes in many names – weed grinder, marijuana grinder, cannabis grinder, or flower grinder.  Basically, there are 3 main types of grinders divided into parts.  This is also confusing because a 2- part grinder has 1 chamber.  Don't ask me why they didn't label it "single chamber" grinder, but think of it like a double layer cake with the two pieces being the top and bottom. 

2-Part Grinder

This is a simple form of grinder that has one compartment where all of you dry herb is grinded and contained. These grinders are usually inexpensive and reliable.

The downside is really the single chamber that keeps all of your components together.  This leads to inconsistent grinds, as you will be left will seeds, sticks, and large chunks.  If the world only had 2-part grinders, you would still have millions of happy users satisfied with their session. 

However, the 2-part is great until you try a 3-part grinder.

3-Part Grinder

A wise man once said "no stress, no seeds, no stems, no sticks!".  The 3-part comes with a second compartment below the main grinding chamber, which has small holes in the bottom that open into the bottom piece, allowing the ground weed to filter through. 

This upgraded version allows for a finer grind of herb, however, you are still unable to separate the kief from the flower. 

4-Part Grinder

The 4- part grinder allows your to easliy capture the kief at the bottom of the chamber. Kief is the highly sought after part of the bud that contains the highest percentage of cannabinoids.

The chambers function as follows:

  • first chamber breaks up the weed
  • second chamber contains your fine grind
  • third chamber contains your kief

The one drawback with this grinder is size. It is difficult to find a portable four parter that you can stick in your pocket and head on your way.

There are 5 part grinders as well, these are basically 4-part ones on steroids and are designed to process large quantities of herb.

We are sure that you will be satisfied with any grinder choice, as it will improve the functionality of your vaporizer by allowing more air to pass over the herb.
