Herb grinders are time saving tools we use to grind up our tobacco before we smoke, vape, cook with it, etc. Grinders are popular among enthusiasts of all types whether old or young, beginner or sage. Here at  The Hub Smoke Shop we are proud to display in all three locations a number of different types of grinders from all major brand makers you’ve come to know as your choice in grinders..


Why Own an Grinder?

The main reason to own a grinder is well grinding your herb. There are so many reasons to grind your herb. If you’re smoking, a grinder will ensure that your tobacco is broken up enough to roll perfect everytime, pack bowl that won’t clog, and enable you to load a bowl large enough to go through the entire circle. Grinders are also great for cooking. Planning on making some extracts? It’s a lot easier freshly ground! Perhaps one of the best reasons to own an herb grinder, is so you can collect purity is used for all sorts of things like smoking, cooking, and making hash.


What to Consider When Buying an Grinder

There are a number of things you should consider when buying an herb grinder. Are you new to grinding your herb? A simpler two chamber grinder might be the best for you. How much are you willing to spend? A high-end grinder would be a good investment, as they last for years and years. You should absolutely invest in a good three to four chamber herb grinder. Do you tend to use a grinder frequently, as in multiple times a day? You definitely want to invest in a sturdy metal grinder. If you’re an infrequent user, and/or are on a budget, a more inexpensive acrylic herb grinder would be right for you.


Grinder materials

Our metal grinders tend to offer the most power and are sure to last, while acrylic grinders come in a wide range of colors, shapes and sizes, all of which offer a great value. Crystal catching grinders are great for anyone who wants to get the most out of their bud. The bottom layer of the grinder is set up beneath a fine screen. The screen sifts the tobacco and allows only the finest to drop through, leaving you with a full taste result that would have otherwise been lost. It adds value to the grinder and gives it a double function.


Herb Grinder options

A 2-part herb grinder is certainly enough to get the job done, but if you’re a more frequent smoker, try investing in a 3-part grinder, 4-part grinder or even 5-part grinder, many of which come with built-in pollen screens and catchers to help make your herb go even further. Some grinders have a window in the lid so you can watch the busting action, or even a mechanical crank to turn rather than working the grinder the old-fashioned way. You can also go the tech way with a electric herb grinder. Many grinders have magnets installed in the grinding compartment to keep the lid securely attached while allowing free motion of the two grinding halves. When choosing your grinder, notice which type of teeth it has. They normally are either diamond-shaped, shark teeth-shaped, or steel pin teeth. It’s a matter of preference, just like the look and the material your grinder is made of.
