What Materials make the best Weed Grinders?

When it comes to minimizing waste while containing everything down to the minutest particle of powder, it’s all about choosing the right weed grinder. However, not all weed grinders are created equal based on the material they’re constructed from. Prices often range from the very cheap to the high priced investment grade because of the materials used in their construction. Granted, a person’s budget does play a significant role in the selection of a weed grinder, but there are certain materials that outrank others:

  • Acrylic or plastic grinders – one of the cheaper material choices is acrylic or plastic. Weed grinders made from this material are easily mass produced in clear, multiple, and opaque colors. The teeth are typically diamond-shaped and do a relatively decent job of shredding ones cannabis. The main drawback to acrylic or plastic grinders is how easily their teeth can break. The tinier broken fragments could easily contaminate your weed. Consequently, experienced smokers will opt for something more expensive.
  • Composite grinders – composite weed grinders are made using metal and wood. This style of grinder has a metal interior with a wooden exterior. As with grinders made from other materials, composite grinders turn buds into a finer form that is more conducive to airflow. Just stuffing an entire nugget into a bowl will result in harder pulls, weakened cannabis performance, and a diminished smoking experience. Trying to pull the nugget apart helps but still can’t compete with the airflow achieved by grinding your weed.
  • Metal grinders – when it comes to longevity of use, you can’t beat a metal grinder. All types of alloys are available such as anodized aluminum made in phenomenal colors, stainless steel and its incredible durability, and even titanium despite the cost involved. Most smokers prefer models made from anodized aluminum because of the color factor. You can find them in every color imaginable, even multicolored. Thus, select the one that suits your requirements.
  • Wooden grinders – there are numerous bamboo or wooden weed grinders available on both the high and low end. As you might suspect, the dirt cheap, low-end grinders are made in China and India. Most have these have bamboo or wooden teeth that can easily break off. If you have an aversion to acrylic/plastic or metal grinders, these are a good choice. Just remember to keep the amount of weed you want to grind small enough to achieve the best grind possible.
