A quality weed grinder will seamlessly cut through your product, sifting out the bad chunks and preserving the extra-potent kief (or pollen) for an optimal smoking experience. Meaning: no dirty smoke, no wasted product. You can seriously invest in this accessory if you want, but you can also find some solid, inexpensive options. These 10 best weed grinders—most of them with four pieces to grind bud, sift pollen, and store the results properly—are available online and fit any budget.
