You just got a dank nug and you’re ready to smoke. The only problem is that you don’t have a grinder on hand. Of course, you could always use your hands to grind up the bud. Yet that will leave your fingers smelling like ganja and it might be something you don’t want.
So what do you do?
Well, there are plenty of common things you can use to grind weed without using a grinder. Today we’ll be diving into a short list about how to grind weed without a grinder.
Yes, maybe it’s not the best approach to grinding weed, but it works! With scissors, you simply have the continue chopping the weed into smaller bits and eventually you’ll have grinded weed ready to be smoked. Doing this over a piece of paper will ensure that all the nice little trichomes will drop onto the paper that you can then insert into your joint.
NOTE: Some people also use a shot glass instead of a paper. I prefer the paper because I can get every last bit of it into a joint.
This is definitely not my favorite method because it turns the weed into powder. Nonetheless, if you have a big stash and want to grind a bunch of it without twisting your arm off, using a blender is killer! I typically only use a blender when I’m making edibles, however there has been the occasional joint I rolled from blended weed.
It’s not the best grinder for sure, but it gets the job done!
A Kitchen Knife
Wait…WHAT? Yes, similar to the scissors approach, using a knife to chop the weed works just as well. Just get out a cutting board and start chopping. Eventually you’ll break the weed down into small bits which easily fits into your joint or bowl.
Grind Weed with a Pill Bottle and Coins
I personally don’t like this method because…money is dirty. Of course, you could soak the penny or whatever small coin in alcohol first to disinfect, but still.
Nonetheless, it works but you’ll be doing some serious shaking. Essentially, you’ll want to insert the weed into the pill bottle, close it with a penny or dime with the weed and shake what yo’ mama gave ya’!
After having a pseudo-epileptic fit you should have broken down weed ready to be loaded into your bowl or joint.
Just use your damn Hands already!
If all of the above mentioned methods are too elaborate for you, just grind the weed with your fingers. Get your hands dirty! If your fingers smell like weed, there is something called soap and water that can easily remedy that situation.
Your fingers will do a fantastic job at breaking down the weed and the palm of your hand serves as a ‘bud holder’. To be honest, this is what most stoners do when they don’t have a grinder – THEY BECOME THE GRINDER!
And there you have it, a few different ways you can grind weed without a grinder.
