Is it a little excessive? Sure. A little showy? Probably. But why not live life to the fullest? That, my friends, is why you should try grinding weed with a blender.
Working off the DIY shaker concept we mentioned earlier, our Grindtainer is one of the most budget-friendly and convenient grinders and containers out there. It’s got the space to hold a decent amount of weed, along with the same grinding capacity as the average compact grinder. Already have a grinder? We’d highly recommend this as a handy backup. Even if this is your primary grinder, you’ll still be living easy.
• While not necessary, letting your nugs dry out for a bit will make this a much easier task.
• Make sure you watch your fingers, as the nugs may be quite small. Considering how light and uncompressed nugs can be, note that they’ll let the knife pass through easily.
• As was the case with the other methods, overkill is possible. Chop in moderation.
• Like you would after chopping anything else, clean your board and knife off afterwards.
If it’s the sort of party with mixed drinks, all you need to do is clean out the blender and throw your stash right in there. Close the lid, and you’re off to the races. You’ll want to be careful and switch it to the pulse setting where you can control when it blends. Do it in short intervals until you get the desired texture.
Considering the word “grinder” is included in the name, it kind of had to appear on this list, didn’t it? Just like you would coffee beans, throw your buds in there and grind away! Well, not so fast. You’ll want to clean the thing out first, unless you want to smoke your coffee too (which we do NOT recommend). You should also clean it out afterwards unless you want some “special” coffee the next day.
If you happen to have one lying around, this is a simple and fun way to get your Kush ground up. Get a plate to grate over, pick the appropriate end of the grater, and get to it. It might take a while, but it’ll get easier as you figure out the best way to work with your grater.
Most people will have a pair of scissors lying around, and there will almost definitely be a shot glass. What do you do with those two things? Well, you’ll just need to throw a nug or two in the shot glass and start cutting them in there. Start by cutting them in half, then use the tips of the scissors to make them smaller and smaller.
• If you’re in the US, quarters and nickels work best. For Europeans, the one or two euro coins are your go-to. People in the UK will want to use one or two pound coins for this process.
• Make sure you aren’t over-shaking. It only takes a few too many shakes to leave your weed powdery and unsmokable.
• If you’re using a pill bottle, make sure you clean out the bottle afterwards.
• If you plan on spending the change you use in the process, make sure you clean that off as well.
As we just mentioned, we know there are a few scenarios you could be caught in. Maybe you’re just trying to unwind after a long day. Maybe you’re at a party and need to act fast so everyone can get their smoke on. Whatever situation you’re in, we’ve thought of a variety of ways to get you out of those awkward moments.
We've all been caught without a grinder on hand, but that shouldn't stop you! Whether you're at home, on the go, or partying, there's a way to grind your weed.
For beginners to the world of grinding weed, some first time mistakes will be made. Things like not having a dedicated coffee grinder for kief, or accidentally making coffee with your weed grinder.
Here’s a good myth we want to bust right now. Have you heard this one? There have been reported deaths by using weed in a coffee grinder.
While this is convenient, as most people will have scissors and shotglasses on hand, it doesn’t do the job. It’ll be impossible to cut it up small enough, and it’ll take forever.
The best nomination for a coffee grinder that can make good kief is the KRUPS F203 but be prepared for some trial and error regardless.
If not, you could get a weed mist all up in your area, wasting valuable effort, time and money.
The trick with grinding is getting just the right consistency for pieces of weed that are small enough to pack a bowl and burn evenly, or to cook in some oil/butter.
Let’s also not forget about its large grinding capacity (especially when talking about weed), which easily equals less time for you in the long run.
The Cuisinart in the wrong hands can be overkill, and a newbie could end up badly grinding away their entire stash and also destroying the machine, because it is a burr grinder, not a blade grinder.
If you’re looking for a finer grind, some burr grinders might do it, but it depends on so many factors, you might just end up ruining the machine.
Who knew that coffee grinders could be the best thing for grinding weed? Well, we've happily smoked..er done the research for you, and the results are in.
