Just like when it comes to actual bongs, there are so many different styles of weed grinders, it makes it difficult to find the best type for you. With bongs, you’ve got many different styles, like the new glass water pipes, for example. If you are in the market for a new (or even your first) weed grinder, then it is a good idea to do a bit of research first, before making your decision.

There are hand weed grinders that can come with two or more pieces, as well as grinders and bottles combo, or even power grinders that do all the work for you. At the end of the day, they are doing the same thing, grind weed, but they still have some difference that is it worth considering.

So, have a read on below at some of the different types of weed grinders that you should consider:

Card Shredders

Your typical weed grinder can be a bit bulky and it’s not very easy to carry around. So if you are looking for something that’s light and easy to pop into your pocket, then a card shredder is probably going to be your best option.

It’s the size of a typical credit card and comes with a little slip case, making it super portable and easy to carry in your wallet. The card shredder can be made of different materials like plastic or metal, and the choice is totally up to you which path you want to go down.

2 to 5 Piece Grinders

The most common weed grinders go all the way up to 5 pieces, with the 2 piece grinder obviously being the easiest to use. If you are new to the world of weed grinders, then it is highly recommended that you start at the 2 piece option then work your way up from there if you want.

There tends to be a lot more waste when it comes to the 2 piece grinders. With the 3 piece grinders you starting getting a more uniformed of shredded weed. If you want more precise pieces of weed, then the 3 piece weed grinder is an option to consider.

The next step up is the 4 piece grinder and it is that critical 4th piece that collects the kief, so there is less waste. The kief powder is pretty important for a lot of people, and if you are one of the people the really care about it, then you should be looking at a 4 piece or 5 piece weed grinder exclusively.

The 5 piece weed grinder is also made to ensure collection of the kief, but it has another screen to ensure even finer kief. This type of grinder has the ability to split the kief into “clean” and “dirty” compartments. It also ensures that your weed is grinded as uniformly as possible.

Electric Grinders

Electric weed grinders have actually been around for a while, and if you don’t like grinding your weed by hand, then this is probably your best option. The thing that has improved over the years is the power and battery life of the grinder, meaning it is more powerful than ever and will last longer without needing to charge it.

While there is more power in these machines than in the past, it is still an issue and you may not get that fine or uniform grinded weed that you are looking for, or that you could get with a hand grinder. Overgrinding is also an issue that you need to be on the lookout for.
