Grinders or Shredders

Grinders catalog

Some tools become popular the instant they pop up, and soon it’s hard to believe that we used to live without them. One of these tools is definitely the weed grinder or shredder.

What is a Grinder?

A grinder, also known as a shredder, is a tool that allows you to shred your flowers easily without getting your fingers sticky. The first grinders originally used were two-piece wooden grinders with nails in them, although since then many different models have been created designed to finely shred flowers. At La Huerta Grow Shop you can find the best grinders and many different models available that meet the needs of all growers.

When did Grinders First Appear?

We’re not entirely sure who invented the grinder nor how they were inspired, but we do know who patented it; William Wingfield and John Balding in Boort, Victoria, Australia. They applied for the patent on April 19th, 1905 – the day before 420! It had a similar design to the wooden models with nails, designed for shredding tobacco and other substances.

Grinders were popularized alongside sinsemilla cannabis seeds, and over the years they’ve been perfected. The teeth in the grinder went from being nails, to having a diamond or triangle shape, and they’re not usually made out of wood anymore, rather more durable and easier to clean materials such as plastic and metal. Some of them even have storage compartments for cannabis or papers, and others accumulate resin in the bottom. Some of them are even just one piece of metal used as a sort of shredder or grater. Our store stocks all of the best grinder models at the best prices.

Why Do You Need a Grinder?

Grinders are the best way to shred your cannabis flowers, and there are a few reasons they’re so popular:

  • Ground weed simply burns better, provides a more even blunt burn, produces smoother smoke and is generally more enjoyable.
  • It’s easier to roll weed shredded with a joint than weed cut with scissors or with your hands, especially if you roll without tobacco.
  • Grinders allow you to make the most of the trichomes on your cannabis; if you use your hands to shred them you’ll end up losing a lot of resin stuck to your fingers.

La Huerta Grow Shop Grinders

Our catalogue has some of the best grinders on the market, available at the best prices. Ever since they appeared, grinders have evolved quite a lot in order to adapt to consumers. Most consumers have more than one grinder, one for each occasion.

Grinder without Pollen Catcher

The first types of grinder without pollen catchers to appear were simple two-piece and card grinders that just shred your weed without catching the pollen.

Card Grinder

This grinder is super easy to transport and store; card grinders fit in any purse, pocket etc. They’re kind of like cheese grinders that come in one piece. Card grinders usually have a thin mesh or sharp holes that allow you to easily shred your cannabis. They’re not the comfiest models, although they’re great for easy transport, they’re clean and effective.

Two-piece Grinder

This model still has a sort of old-school design; two pieces that fit together with teeth on the inside, where you place the flower and then turn both sides so its shredded. Two-piece grinders are also easy to transport and super comfortable to use. There are all types of models; from 40mm and 50mm diameter metal models, and 60mm plastic models.

Grinder with Pollen Catcher

These three or four part grinders shred cannabis and also have a mesh that accumulates pollen (resin/hash) with every use. Grinders with pollen catchers are much larger than two-piece or card grinders, and they’re ideal for using at home. They tend to be preferred by consumers because they’re small and easy to handle while also accumulating resin. Most 4-piece grinders allow you to remove the filter part, and therefore accumulate just weed in the bottom.

Electric Grinders

Electric Grinders are definitely a great way to be the envy of your friends and the life of the party. It’s not usually the most sought after type of grinder; it’s easy to go too far and end up grinding your cannabis too much. Keep in mind that these grinders are quite fast when it comes to shredding your weed.
