Electric herb grinders running on batteries are very good at grinding herbs and resinous material. We offer several versions of these automatic grinders, from simple basic models to electric sieve grinders.
Acrylic grinders are the most popular since they are very robust and can be easily cleaned. In addition, they are available in all kinds of shapes and colors.
Metal herb grinders are more robust than the wooden or acrylic ones but also a little more expensive. On the other hand, the material yield of any acrylic herb grinder simply can not be compared with the excellent performance of a good metal grinder.
Those are real classics. The first grinders were made of wood or stone. Wooden and stone grinders have a good grip and are recommendable for occasional smokers.
Our sifter grinders come with a very fine mesh filter integrated into the lower part of the herb mill, so the resin and pollen don't get lost. This allows you to gather the resinous crystals separately.
Grinders with a crank handle make grinding so much easier and don't strain your wrist in the same way normal grinders do.

What is a grinder?A grinder aka herb grinder or spice grinder is a device for shredding herbs. They consist of at least two cylindrical parts which can be rotated in opposite directions. In doing so the contents between them are shredded according to the density and sharpness of the teeth within. More sophisticated grinders consist of three or more parts. The crushed material gets filtered through a screen to seperate leaves and woody parts from the desired pollen or crystals.
Herbs, lumps of tobacco and other substances dedicated for smoking are most easily chopped up or "ground" through the use of a grinder or herb mill.
These devices come in different styles, materials and sizes. Wood, metal, plastic etc...
The most popular type of grinder is likely to be filter grinders with pollen compartment - they do not only grind down the herbs but also filter them through a fine screen whereafter they get collected in a compartment and are almost ready-to-smoke.
Preparing herbs for grindingIf you want to grind herbs, depending on the variety, usually you'll have to do some preparing beforehand. This process includes removing the branches, which are mostly abundantly covered with leaves, and then drying the herb for a few days/weeks depending on the available space and the climate situation. Removing the branches can be done with scissors, a knife or with your hands.
Grinding herbs can increase the effect, because the inflorescence is cut open which leads to a better distribution of active components, perfectly balanced mix ratio and unobstructed air flow.
