Best Grinder for Vaporizers

What is a Vaporizer?

A vape is an electrical instrument that heat up your herb so that you can inhale the vapor, which is much healthier for you than smoking. There are a lot of vapor types; the most widely used are the “desktop” ones because they provide more vapor for the same amount of herb as portables ones.

I won’t start listing all the things that vaporizers do because we’ve attached an infographic below the content for you to read.

Why is it important to grind your weed?

If you don’t own a good grinder, you will probably notice that the amount of smoke that you exhale is considerable smaller. If you choose to live in the dark ages and use scissors and your hand, you won’t be able to enjoy that awesome vapor.

The biggest problems are if the grinded material is too powdery it will go through the heating pipes and won’t burn. You won’t be able to use a vaporizer properly if you don’t use the best weed grinder that you can find.

Main buying criteria

We made a more in-depth pot grinder buyer’s guide so here we will list only the most important aspects that define an MMJ grinder as the best one for the vaporizer usage.

Teeth – The teeth mush have a special shape (like the Santa Cruz) that makes them interlock better than another we’ve seen so far. They also have to be made from stainless steel or even better aluminum so that they can grind for longer periods of time. Another aspect is the position and number, yes, they need a lot of time research to achieve perfect alignment.

Material – We consider acrylic grinder as being the worst (read seven reasons why), that why we recommend using only metal herb grinders even if you are not interested in vape smoking. Aircraft Grade Anodized Aluminum (AGAA) is the best material from which all top rated shredders are made of, some of them even use Titanium as coating since it would be unrealistically expensive otherwise.

Multi Chamber – If you truly want the best grinder for vaporizers you must be looking for a 3 or 4 piece metal grinder. Why complicate things with a two piece shredder for which you need to have a piece of paper to drop your grinded weed, when you can store it in your awesome grinder?

We got a few questions about which grinder to use when vaping, so we decided to a small top with only the best. On most of these grinders, we did more detailed reviews so make sure to check them out.

1. Santa Cruz Shredder Review

I like the way it looks and the fact that ti has four pieces makes it an awesome addition to our list, we do a detailed review of because it worths it. The fact that it has a plastic cover that seals its air tight thus making your herb stay fresh much longer.

Aircraft Grade Anodized Aluminum is the chosen material for this beauty; however the teeth are sharp than any competitors, and this is a bold move from them.

The size makes it both a home grinder but also a portable one which is nice considering the fact that some of them are one or the other.

From all the things above we think that the Zeus Bolt Grinder is a cool one that is worth checking out because it won’t disappoint you, they are made with love in Toronto Canada.

We like the new Zeus Grinders and think that they are a great addition to the market. Also, the price is good for the quality they provide. When in the market for a new grinder for vaporizer make sure to buy a quality one rather than spend money on a cheap herb shredder that can’t be used correctly for vaporizers.
