The 10 Types Of Grinders You Could Be Using For Your Bud

If you smoke weed on a daily basis and don’t have a grinder, what are you doing? Unless you’re that old fashion where you would rather break up nugs with your hand. You’re just missing out on a ton of kief. Now, why would you want to do that?

I couldn’t go without having a grinder and smoking weed daily. It makes it so much easier to break up nugs. The best park of a grinder is getting the kief. That is if you have at least a three chambered grinder. No country for people without at least a three chamber grinder.

We give you Greenies 10 of the grinders you will most likely use. I guarantee one of your friends has one or more of these types of grinders. Some I despises of and some I wish I had. If I have forgotten a type, please leave a comment.

1. Plastic Grinder

By far the worst grinder ever known to man. Nobody wants to use this at any point. But times can get tough and weed needs to be smoked.

One Chamber Plastic: 1/10

Three Chamber Plastic: 3/10

2. One Chamber Grinder

I hate these almost as much as plastic grinders for only one reason. You’re losing all that kief. The break up your bud fine and all. I just hate seeing kief go to waste.

One Chamber Metal: 5/10

3. Electric Grinder

I had one of these for a short period. I traded a girl at this party my shirt for her grinder. It had some old cartoon character on it that she loved. I could careless about and it was a simply trade for me. It worked good until it broke. That’s why it only gets a 4. There’s a good chance it will break.


Electric Grinder: 4/10



4. Wooden Grinder

I don’t know who would even bother buying one of these. Is there anyone out there actually using these? It has to be so trash to be using this. Just as bad as the plastic ones. Anyone have a different opinion, please speak now.

Wooden Grinder: 3/10

5. Bud Grater

Nobody uses this. I can’t believe they even sell these. They are six bucks, lol. No way I’m going to sit there like grade weed like cheese. No is this going to be me with my bud.

Grater: -1/10

6. Rotary Crank Grinder

Seen it in action. Works good. Easy to use. Only thing that I don’t like about it is that it is a crank. Which means pieces that can break. When being used it is definitely the best.

Rotary Crank: 9/10

7. Three Chamber Grinder

The greatest grinder you can buy. Three chambers. One for weed, one for kief. Unbreakable if dropped. What more can you ask for in a grinder. It has durability, kief chamber and breaks up your weed well. They aren’t pricey and are small for easy travel. I personally use this one exact one above. I have zero complaints.

Three Chamber: 10/10

8. Gas Station Grinder

They might be from the gas station and only be 10 bucks. If they are a three chamber grinder, I think they might as good if not better than the grinder at the 7 spot. My one buddy bought one just like the above ones and it was a three chamber grinder. He had for years. It one one of the best ones I’ve used.

Gas Station: 9/10

9. Giant Grinder

If you’re really going to break up a shit load of weed. Yes, this would be perfect. But not many people are breaking this much up on a regular basis. Just went from a 5 to 4.

Giant Grinders: 4/10

10. Bullet Grinder

This is the grinder Wiz Khalifa uses. It is basically the same as the Three Chamber grinder at 7. Just the outside is shaped in bullets. Easily a 10/10.

Bullet Grinder: 10/10

You can have the coolest grinder or the cheapest plastic one. It doesn’t matter what type you have if it isn’t filled with kief.

This much kief in your grinder (No Matter The Type): 420

    Yeah, this post brings back the memories…..we were big on using the shot glass and scissors method. But now that I’m all grown up, I got myself a good metal grinder….

    One more question…are you familiar with “Raw”?? I found a kit.. has a box papers grinder (4 chamber) etc and read some good reviews….but really liked this blog here and would love your opinion ,,,,oh it’s $39.99

  5. SiGGa January 9, 2014 at 19:04

    Where’s the coffee grinder..?

  6. Eli Shakespear January 9, 2014 at 16:54

    I disagree with many of these and the ratings as well. I am not sure you did your research on them and instead just put a few types of grinders up and called it a day. Though I can not find their link or product I know of a grinder in production with a clear viewing area for the herb portion. You also forget to mention glass top grinders, 4 chamber grinders, coffee grinders or other herb grinders. I would like to see a retraction done and a bigger article. Grinders have a place in our worlds lets get a good representation.

    The grater is used for resin lol …

    I disagree so much with some of these picks, mainly because each grinder has a different purpose for it. But all I can say, the first grinder thats pictured in #9 is the best grinder in the world. period.

    plastics suck hands down, only use would possibly be for a concert or somewhere you don’t mind it being lost, taken, or stolen.

    One chambers are good for people who have to smoke all at once, like if you live with your parents and couldn’t have bud left around.

    Electric? My opinion recently changed on electrics. a week ago I would’ve told you electric grinders are bullshit, but we had grind a whole lot in a short time and it was perfect. occasional use only i would say

    Wood grinders are really good for moist, hard to grind buds. I use to have a wood one just for that purpose, but someone stole it.

    Bud grater?? hahahaha I literally never saw that in my life. thanks for showing me something new 🙂

    I totally agree with your opinion of cranks and three chambers

    Gas station grinders are cool because they basically come with a tray you can put your stuff on. their biggest downfall is the dumbass designs they have on them.

    I disagree with your Giant grinder rating just because a lot of people don’t break up a lot of bud, shouldn’t effect the rating. because what about those you go hard in the paint at all times?? haha

    I disagree with the 10/10 bullet grinder rating just because Wiz Khalifa uses it….(but this is coming from someone who has an old Taylor Gang one chamber haha)

    Overall good review though.

    1. SiGGa January 9, 2014 at 19:21

      The first grinder in #9 looks like a large Space Case w/magnetic lid – is that what you’re thinking? If so, i definitely agree! It will grind and easily kief an eighth at a time and has the finest screen I’ve found yet.

      Top of the pack for sure, and they come in a size the same as #7, so you can has the best of both worlds! I miss mine to this day – but haven’t been able to justify the $120+ price tag again since I’m not earning what I once was.

      The kief was as blonde as kief can be though. . Not even a hint of green. Space Case: 11/10 for quality

      *edit for wood grinders – yes its true, for some buds they are great. I suggest a classic Sweetleaf for the ickiest, most incurably dense of the sticky nugs..

      Awesome comment.

      The grater was a joke lol Never seen it before either.

      Never knew that bout the wood grinders.

      Those gas station designs on grinders are so corn. lol

      The bullet got a 10/10 because of how good it is now bc of Wiz. But I see what you’re saying.

      On what?

      1. Marcus B March 13, 2013 at 18:03

        I pressed the button too quick, I edited it a few minutes ago

    Forgot to include 2 chamber grinders. They still collect kief but requires a little more work preserving the kief, and probably a little longer collecting a good amount.

      I thought about it and thought there was no point. It is like a single chamber grinder and is nowhere close to as good as a three chamber grinder.
