Top 10 Weed Grinders

5 min

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.


OTTO Grinder Smart Cone Filler

While there are many grinders on the market, there is no doubt that the OTTO Grinder is one of the most innovative available. Not only will this grinder render your herb into finely ground particles, but it even allows you to load it directly into a pre-rolled cone of your choice. At first glance, you may mistake this grinder for some kind of space-age kitchen tool! But like most cannabis accessories, functionality, practicality, and innovation are at the forefront of the OTTO Grinder’s design.

Using the OTTO Grinder is easy: Start by placing your weed into the milling chamber. This one comes complete with its own on-board AI, integrated seamlessly alongside state-of-the-art grinding plates. This combination works to grind your herb to the perfect consistency. Your weed is then ready to be loaded into your cone. This is done by placing the cone under the tube and allowing the freshly ground herb to fill to your chosen level. Sounds simple, right? It is! Save time and effort with the OTTO Grinder.


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.
