Electric Herb Grinders: A Better Way to Grind Herb

Grinding your dried cannabis may seem like a straightforward practise. I’ve personally known people who (primitively) used butter knives, crushed their bud with their fingers, or smashed it inside a book. All of these terrible options leave you with inconsistently ground cannabis, and a measurable loss of important oils, crystals and, subsequently, potency. Often, when an enthusiast starts grinding their own herb, they buy a simple manual grinder. These are made of two (or more) plates with pillar-shaped blades. When turned, the plates’ teeth grind the herb in a relatively effective way (especially when compared to the horrendously poor practises of destroying it with a book or a butter knife).

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 are often turning to cannabis as an effective option for pain relief.

What an unfortunate conundrum!

Many low-quality electric cannabis grinders leave much to be desired as well. The battery life can be inconsistent, and the spillage problem still exists (so frustrating to finally get your bud properly ground only to lose half of it to the carpet). 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.

The Mamba grinder addresses all of these manual and electric grinder issues with high quality parts, attention to detail, and superior design. Using a cone shaped herb grinder eliminates the spill issue that other grinders haven’t been able to rectify. The conical piece easily delivers your ground cannabis exactly where it needs to go – with no spillage or waste of your product. Look for a grinder with parts that are high quality (preferably aircraft grade aluminum), and where the power doesn’t fluctuate with usage. This will ensure a fluffy, consistent grind every time.

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.

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 ultimate guide to herb grinders to learn more and make a decision that works best for you and your use.

Whether you are a “budding” bud connoisseur, an experienced grinder, or someone who prides themselves on packing the perfect bowl, you should be re-evaluating your grinder needs regularly to get the most out of your product and accessories. 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.
