Buying Cheap Grinders

If you consider yourself a regular smoker, then you’re selling yourself short by not grinding your own product. Without a grinder, you’re depending on however many hands that process and transport your herbs or tobacco before it reaches you, which you cannot guarantee that it is being done correctly and with the highest of standards.  If you want to control the flavor and purity of your product, you’re going to need to invest in a good grinder. Not all grinders are created equal, so you’re going to need to do a little investigating and research to find the one that suits your needs.  Here is a brief guide to help guide your first purchase of a grinder..

Metal Grinders

Grinder will come in all shapes, sizes, and materials, but metal grinders are going to be the most prominent.  You want to look for a metal weed grinder that is rust-proof and easy to clean.  Aluminum grinders are often affordable, but watch for thin fabrication, as those will end up breaking eventually after repeated usage.  Also, pay attention to the accessibility of grinder screens, you want a universal screen that can be cheap and easy to replace. The biggest perks of metal grinders is their ability to finely grind materials, while also being easy to sanitize and keep clean.

Plastic Grinders

By far the cheapest grinders on the market, these are a good option for entry-level smokers.  These are not grinders you want to use for more than a few months of regular smoking.  The plastics on the cheapest of grinders pose a risk to smokers, as they can potentially give off harmful toxic byproducts, similar to how microwave plastics can leech into food. Be prepared for plastic grinders to become jammed from the inability to smoothly grind herbs or possibly break if you grind too fast.  Consistency in the grind is difficult with plastics, plus you can’t collect pollen or kief with them.

Final Thought

You need a grinder if you want to improve the quality of your product and to control what goes into your roll or bowl.  If you need a cheap introductory grinder, plastic grinders are dirt cheap, but if you want to make a long-term investment, you’ll want to grab a metal grinder, even a cheap grinder made of metal will give you a decent value.  As you get into the more expensive grinders, you options open up with pollen chambers and creating your own blends easily because of the efficiency of the grinder. ​ The world is your oyster, look into buying cheap grinders online and find yours on Livestoner!
