The Electric Herb Grinder ReviewAugust 19, 2018
We have all been there – we want the best smoking experience without wasting our herb. The best way to do this is with a grinder – but what to purchase. Regular grinders have the bonus of not needing extra pieces to be able to accomplish this goal but they miss the mark as far as grinding our herb finely. That is the most important thing to remember about an electric grinder – you will never be able to manually grinder your herbs with an electric grinder.
Top Herb Grinder Attribute – The Motor
The most obvious attribute is that the electric grinder takes away all the work of grinding your herb. By using the beautiful power of electricity you are allowing yourself the best smoking experience available on the free market (assuming your herb is of good quality). Most importantly, you need to remember that your smoking experience is only the culmination of the equipment you have and the herb you can obtain. A wonderful attribute of an electric grinder is that you do not have to worry about collecting pollen as the herb is ground so finely and efficiently that it is already essentially mixed in. For some smokers, this may seem either counterintuitive or it will seem simply foreign but once you take a hit you will notice the difference. You will receive the potency of a finely ground herb product mixed with pollen that you would otherwise need to mix together yourself.

How to use the Electric Grinder?
You will use this grinder much like you would any other except that instead of manually grinding your herb by rotating the grinder and using the built-in blades to chop your herb you simply press a button. Of course, this means that you need to make sure that there are batteries inside of your grinder but this is a small, albeit critical, detail. Most importantly to remember is that there is not going to be a pollen collector – the reason being that you do not need to have pollen collection because the electric grinder will mechanically process your herb so finely that you do not need to worry about making sure you are maximizing your herb. It is important that you keep all this in mind – if you are the type of person that likes to keep your pollen and herb separate than this grinder is likely not going to be for you. It doesn’t mean you are guaranteed to dislike this grinder but you may find the combination dissatisfying.
Maintaining the Electric Grinder
You should be careful that you do not allow your grinder to clunk too much as well as that you are not overworking the electronic motors. While packing too much herb is always an issue that last thing you want is to overheat the motors of the electric grinder – a single advantage that a manual grinder would hold. This is not to say that manual grinders are superior – just that if you ‘overheat’ yourself from packing too much herb into your grinder you are less likely to overheat than the motors. Simple maintenance is necessary.
Is the Electric Grinder for me?
Have you found yourself trying harder and harder to be able to grind your herb? Do you like to show off to your friends by having the newest, best products? Well then you likely would enjoy owning the electric grinder. Most often, this grinder is most convenient for individuals that find themselves unable to grind their herb finely enough to their tastes. Moreover, if you are not worried about your pollen being kept in the same chamber as their herb than this grinder will likely provide you with the satisfaction that you want and need in order to better enjoy your smoking experience. Most importantly, do not worry about the inclusion of batteries – most household products you own and use on a regular basis operate on the same power source as this grinder.
Grinding Herbs vs Fingers
All grinders are better than fingers. That is simply a fact. However, an electric grinder is one of the best options available to you because you don’t even have to exert yourself to access your herb. Most importantly, an electric grinder will remove the need for all the extra chambers for pollen collection.
