A New Wave of Herb Grinders


When it comes to grinding cannabis, I’ve known people who (primitively) used knives, crushed it with their fingers, or smashed it inside a book. What a tragic injustice to befall their herb. All of these terrible options leave you with inconsistently ground cannabis, and a measurable loss of important oils, crystals, and potency.

Typically, the first “real” grinder anyone owns is a manual grinder. They are cheap, easy to come by, and relatively effective (if you know what you’re doing). Manual grinders consist of two (or more) plates with pillar-shaped blades. When turned, the plates grind the herb in a relatively effective way. Unfortunately, manual grinders nearly always provide an inconsistent grind due to several factors: too much or too little bud, the number of rotations, the speed of the rotations, and user error. Frequently, trying to transfer your ground herb results in spillage and subsequent wastage. While a manual grinder can get the job done, it leaves much to be desired from anyone looking for a high-quality experience. When using a manual grinder, you must use two hands, which is often difficult for those with dexterity challenges or limited mobility – and those medicinal users who are often turning to cannabis as an effective pain reliever.

Electric grinders solve a lot of the problems with manual grinders, but not all electric grinders are created equal. Some are terribly expensive (for no good reason), and some are terrible quality, but look flashy enough to justify the price. Many poor-quality electric cannabis grinders leave much to be desired as well. The battery life can be inconsistent (imagine the devastation of your grinder just stopping and needing to be recharged mid session!), and the spillage problem still exists. Many electric grinders, despite a hefty price tag, will jam from too much bud, insufficient bud, or seemingly no cause at all. With inconsistent power comes an inconsistent grind, leading to all the same issues as a manual grinder (but for more money). Notably, most electric grinders still require a two-handed operation when it comes time to disassemble the grinder in order to transfer the ground bud to the desired receptacle.

Our recommendation is the Mamba electric weed grinder.

The Mamba grinder addresses all of these manual and electric grinder issues with high quality parts, attention to detail, and superior design. Mamba’s electric weed grinder eliminates the spill issue that other grinders haven’t been able to rectify. The cone shape easily delivers your ground herb exactly where it needs to go – with no spillage or waste. The Mamba parts are high quality, aircraft grade aluminum, and the battery/motor power doesn’t fluctuate with usage, which delivers you a fluffy, consistent grind every time. The key to getting the most potency, aroma, and flavour out of your bud is an effective grind. If you are still using an outdated method of grinding, check out the complete guide to cannabis grinders to learn more and make a decision that works best for you and your use. Mamba also offers a power drill grinder, which attaches easily to your existing power drill.

The Mamba electric grinder has effectively eliminated the downsides of existing grinders (both manual and other electric/battery units), and surpassed the exceptionally more expensive competition in performance. The one-handed operation, with its easy to operate features, additionally removes the accessibility barrier for herb enthusiasts with concerns about pain or dexterity limitations. A simple change of grinder – whether switching to electric or changing the manufacturer – can make a huge difference in unlocking the true potential of your herb.
