Ask 420: What is a Grinder?

Q: What is a grinder? 

A: A grinder is a tool used to break up your marijuana into smaller pieces for usage in vaporizers, cigarettes or other ingestion devices. There are a variety of different types of grinders on the market, and some DIY methods you can use at home, but a multi-chamber grinder is the most effective and easy tool we recommend.

If you want a step-by-step video on how to use a grinder, check out this video by Leafly. If you’re interested in purchasing a grinder, we sell them in our office, more information here. As always, feel free to call us with any questions: 403-475-4205.
