Grinders will make your life easier. They break up dried cannabis flower into perfectly sized green nuggets that burn evenly and consistently so that you get the most out of your precious bud.

After reading this article, you’ll know what to look for and where to find the best weed grinders in Lethbridge — whether you’re in the North, South or West.

Why Grind Your Weed?

The main reason to grind your weed is for even consistency. When you’re smoking a joint or a bong bowl,  ground weed has better airflow, so the weed burns evenly. Additionally, most grinders include a bottom compartment known as a kief catch. 

Kief, or pollen, is the fairy dust-like particles, called trichomes, that coat the weed. Trichomes hold all the cannabinoids, like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), that cause cannabis’ euphoric and therapeutic effects.

Understanding Grinder Types

You can find metal, wood, plastic, 2-piece, and 4-piece weed grinders at Bridge Bud Supply in Lethbridge North, South, and West. Here are the pros and cons of each.

Pros and Cons of Metal Grinders

Pros: Metal grinders are the most durable and long-lasting, and they break down dense bud easily.

The cons: They’re usually more expensive than other grinders and weigh more than wood and plastic options.

Pros and Cons of Wood Grinders

Pros: Wooden grinders are lightweight and have a natural aesthetic.

Cons: Wooden grinders are more challenging to clean because wood absorbs moisture. They’re also more prone to breaking.

Pros and Cons of Plastic Grinders

Pros: Plastic and acrylic grinders are lightweight and affordable. Some plastic grinders have V-shaped teeth that can grind your weed really fine — great for vaping or packing tight bowls. 

Cons: Because plastic and acrylic are less durable, these grinders tend to break more frequently. 

Aside from the materials used to make grinders, there are differences between functions, such as 2-piece grinders and 4-piece grinders. 

2-Piece and 4-Piece Weed Grinders: Components and Features

Two-piece grinders are the simplest in design, consisting of identical top and bottom grinding chambers. 

  • Top and Bottom Grinding Chambers: Both chambers house the teeth or pegs that grind the herb. Turn and twist the two pieces together to break down the weed into smaller pieces. The size and shape of the teeth vary between grinder models, affecting the consistency of the grind.
  • While simple in design, two-piece grinders offer convenience and portability, making them popular for stoners on the move.

Four-piece grinders have both the top grinding and bottom collection chambers while adding an extra layer of functionality—a pollen screen and a kief catch.

  • Pollen Screen: Below the collection chamber lies a mesh screen that allows the fine pollen or kief (trichomes) to pass through, separating it from the larger pieces.
  • Kief Catch: The chamber below the screen serves as a reservoir for collected kief, which is more potent than dried flower. The more you use the grinder, the more kief you can collect and mix into your joints and bowls or roll between your fingers to make little hash balls. 

Bud Supply’s Top Picks

Our Budtenders have compiled a list of our favourite grinders, from budget-friendly to premium options. Check them out.

Best Bang-For-Your-Buck Grinder

Route 1’s Plastic 2-piece Grinder is lightweight, under $10, and efficient at breaking bud down. It's a great choice if you’re looking for a quick solution that’s easy on the wallet.

Best 4-Piece Grinder

When it comes to weed grinders, Sharpsone is a household name. The updated version of their 4-piece grinder has the same great features as the original SharpStone Grinders, with a few modest upgrades, making it an excellent investment piece for serious tokers.

Wooden Grinders for a Natural Aesthetic

Ongrok’s 3” Walnut Grinder is durable and grinds medium to fine weed every time. It’s a 2-piece grinder, but its deep walls also function as herb storage. It also comes with a guitar pick scoop and brush.

Maintaining Your Grinder: Cleaning and Care

Follow these steps to keep your grinder in top shape. 

  1. Disassemble your grinder’s components, separating the top grinding chamber and bottom collection chamber.
  2. Use a small brush or toothpick to remove any stubborn residue buildup from the teeth and threads.
  3. For deeper cleaning, soak the disassembled grinder components in warm water and dish soap or isopropyl alcohol for several minutes. (But skip this step if you have a wooden grinder — wood is too porous to be soaked). 
  4. Use a soft-bristled brush or toothbrush to scrub the components thoroughly after soaking.
  5. Allow the grinder parts to air dry fully before using to prevent moisture buildup and mold or mildew growth.
