Grinders have revolutionised cannabis preparation. No more resin-dulled scissors and black fingertips. No more waiting for that mix to be fine-tuned. Load, then twist, and perfectly fluffy buds are ready in seconds. Zamnesia presents our top 10 grinders.

A cannabis grinder is an easy-to-use utensil that makes the preparation of marijuana quick, clean, and effective. Dried cannabis flowers need to be broken down before they can be smoked. Your preferred consumption method may be a joint, blunt, bong, or vaporizer.

Whatever the case is, your weed nuggets will perform better when they have been pared down into smaller pieces, increasing the surface area. Not only do grinders make the process easier, they also ensure that you aren’t letting any bud go to waste.

Other methods of preparation can be sticky and messy, especially considering the high calibre of resinous strains available in the modern marketplace. Sticky fingers make packing a bong or vaporizer a drama. Rolling papers and blunt blanks can become a frustrating nightmare.

An Ultimate Guide To Grinders

There are numerous types of grinders. Some are as simple as a grating card, which is just like a miniature cheese grater, but for weed. Other basic models are single chamber affairs where the buds are ground up, then tapped out into a bowl, etc. Other versions become increasingly elaborate with up to four chambers! These varieties catch the well-ground nugs and kief in separate chambers. This way, the kief can be collected and stored for later compressing into hash or making into concentrates.

Zamnesia’s top ten cannabis grinders

The dedicated team at Zamnesia have processed and smoked a lot of top-shelf weed in the name of research. They have rolled many joints and packed bongs late into the night, just to bring you this list of Zamnesia’s top 10 cannabis grinders.


Metal Grinder RQS Pollinator Mill

This unique grinder/pollinator made exclusively for Royal Queen Seeds features a hand crank rather than the standard shuttle motion for grinding. The internal screens sort your cannabis into fine, ready-to-use particles.

The milling chamber gives a perfectly fluffy texture for spliff rolling or cone packing. Vaporizers love the even texture, which makes heating more efficient. More efficient vaping guarantees that nothing is left behind in the heating chamber.

The bottommost kief chamber collects the superfine particles, resin dust, and loose glands. Take the trichome challenge and see how big a ball of hash you can make in twelve months, or just add the collected kief to your mix.

This grinder has been specially designed for cannabis and leaves your weed ideally prepared. The RQS mill outperforms other mill-type grinders like coffee grinders or food processors, which undesirably pulverise your weed. Poorly-prepared marijuana can affect the final quality of your stash.

Available in black with a white RQS logo and lettering, this excellent grinder is a cylinder of marijuana efficiency. It has a diameter of 62mm and is 62mm high, perfect for tabletops, concerts, and camping.


Concave Grinder

The Concave Grinder from Black Leaf is a functional four-piece device. The designers have successfully integrated several useful features that make preparing cannabis flowers easier than ever. The top piece features a concave surface that acts as a handy mixing bowl and you can use it to combine your weed with other smokable herbs.

The first chamber houses razor-sharp metal teeth that grind your material with ease. The diamond-cut teeth shred flowers within a few turns and send the milled herb through the holes and into the chamber below. The second chamber consists of a mesh bottom that captures ground herb while allowing trichomes to pass through into the capture tray below. Things can get super sticky in the bottom chamber—use the scraper tool provided when it’s time to fire up your kief stash.


Zamnesia Premium Grinder

The Zamnesia Premium Grinder offers something different. The aesthetics of this piece will set it apart from other grinders in your collection. Upon first glance, you’ll notice dark colours, Zamnesia logo, and the transparent lid. The latter is a unique and functional feature. You don’t have to guess when you've fully processed your buds—see for yourself.

The grinder also boasts a unique interior. The top chamber features sharp metal blades that effortlessly grind buds into a powder. The ground herb passes through to the chamber below, whereas any loose pollen will continue into the collection chamber. Overall, the Zamnesia Premium Grinder is a sturdy metal piece with a quirky design. It’ll last a long time and spice up your collection.

You can place the stickiest, most resinous flowers in this grinder and they’ll emerge truly transformed.

The central chamber catches your perfectly prepared buds without a resin blackened finger in sight. The bottom chamber catches all the trichome and fractured resin goodness. Use the included scraper to collect the kief whenever you’re ready. Perhaps add it atop a bowl or bong once the chamber is mostly filled.

This grinder has a diameter of 62mm and is 48mm high. The magnetic lid neatly and tightly holds the components together, preventing pocket rattles and that distinct cannabis aroma from escaping. The Solinder comes in five anodized colours, black, green, red, blue, and orange. The internal surfaces are shiny for easy cleaning and it ways a mere 155g.
