Despite the rise in concentrates, waxes, edibles, and a host of prepared cannabis products, most people still buy and use regular cannabis flowers—good old-fashioned pot. And most people smoking, vaporizing, or cooking with cannabis can benefit from a grinder. With a grinder you can quickly and easily turn dense, sticky buds into material that will heat evenly and efficiently. If you partake only on occasion, an inexpensive model will do enough to make your rare indulgence all the better. But if you regularly reach for a vaporizer, the investment in a high-end weed grinder won’t seem like a stretch and will pay off in the form of more bang for your bud. Though cheap grinders sometimes break, a high-quality grinder is an investment that should last for years.
Before testing grinders using cannabis, we performed a trial run using one tablespoon of dried chamomile flowers in each of the 10 models. The Kannastör results are from an original Gr8tr, though the updated V2 we recommend yielded the same results. Photo: Mark Smirniotis

Most people who casually reach for a vaporizer from time to time probably don’t have much use for separating the kief—the highly potent, crystal-like dust on leaves of cannabis plants—from the rest of the material, so we didn’t focus on kief-catching features like screens.
Easy to empty: A good three- or four-piece grinder should let most of your material fall through the holes between the teeth and into the collection chamber. It’s no fun to sit around picking tiny leafy chunks out from between sharp metal teeth. Yes, a knock or two will normally dislodge stuck buds, but sticky cannabis strains can stubbornly cling to tiny crevices. We looked for models that didn’t hold herbs hostage.
We spent more than 20 hours considering 32 weed grinders and testing 12. Here’s the one we picked based on its smooth, even, and versatile results.
