Herb grinder types
In the good old days, our hippie forefathers just took a whole bud and shoved it in their pipes. The wisest among them would get their hands dirty, using their fingers to break bud up or scissors to cut and grind in pestle and mortar fashion. Although this seemed like the best and easiest option, the reality was messy, wasteful, and didn’t give a lot of opportunity for mixing. Luckily, we're past the stone age of grinding and now herb grinders are widely available and come in a variety of sizes, styles and materials including metal, wood, acrylic, stone, magnetic, rotary, crank and electric herb grinders. Some have additional features like kief catchers, mesh kief screens, extra large grinding chambers and clear windows for easy viewing.

Best grinders and grinder tool types
We carry both metal rotary grinders and plastic rotary grinders in a variety of sizes and cool designs. A rotary grinder’s interlocking teeth tear the herb apart evenly and it falls through the holes into the chamber for you to pack into your bowl. This means that potent oils and pollen aren’t left sticking to your fingers and instead get packed into your joint just as it should be.
2 piece grinders : These are the simplest type. They do the trick, and don't have too many loose parts.
3 piece grinders: These have a built-in screen and a chamber below to catch the finer particles and kief which is rich in trichomes.
4 piece grinders : These have a kief screen and a kief catcher and usually come with a small keefer scraper to get all the good stuff. That means you can get all of the trichomes out of your herb and control when and how much of them to pack in your bowl.
Mini grinders: These are a great way to bring finely ground herb with you on the go, so you don't have to stuff your one-hitter with big chunks like old times.
Jar grinders: These double as a container, so you can grind and store herb all in one place, getting the best of both worlds.
How to use a grinder
Take off the lid, break up the larger buds and put them into the grinder. Put the grinder lid back on and rotate about 10 times until shredded herb falls through the holes, and voila!
What are the best grinders and best grinder brands?
There is no one answer to the question of all questions: what is the best herb grinder to buy? It all depends on a few key factors: how many pieces you want your grinder to be, whether you want a kief catcher and screen, size and material. If you're looking for a long-lasting grinder made from high quality materials, these are some of the top grinder brands to keep in mind:
- Marley Natural

What is a kief catcher?
A kief catcher, also known as a pollen catcher is a screen for kief. You may wonder what is the point of a kief catcher and is it really worth it? Yes, hands down. The real question you should be asking is if kief get you higher than bud and the answer is simple: most definitely. Rich in resinous trichomes kief, also called cannabis crystals, is highly concentrated in terpenes and cannabinoids and can be as much as 50% higher than herb. All grinders have will at some capacity catch your kief, but 4 piece grinders have a section that makes it easy for when the mood strikes and you want to turn it up with that fine grind.
How much is a grinder?
Grinders range in price, but cheap herb grinders normally range from as little as $10 - $25, while more high-end generally go up to $100, depending on the quality of the materials used. One of our best grinders is the Marley Natural Large Wood Grinder, which is made from black walnut wood and features a hidden scraper tool at the bottom, so you can collect all that poll.
