5 Ways To Grind Weed Without Grinder

There’s nothing worse than getting ready for a smoke session and realizing you don’t have a grinder. But don’t worry, the team at Dank Riot has all kinds of MacGyver-esque strategies for grinding up those precious nugs in an efficient way.

Here are some of our favorite and most creative ways to grind weed without a grinder:

Cutting Board and knife 

This one is a fairly common method. When you take a second to think about what you’re trying to accomplish, it seems obvious this is a solution. It’s pretty self explanatory, so just make sure to have a sharp enough knife so the bud doesn’t stick to it. That’s it!.

Scissor And Shot Glass

Scissors alone are great at breaking up your bud, but adding a shot glass to the mix makes it a lot more efficient. Grab a pair of scissors then put your budin the shot glass and start snipping at it. The glass will provide a limited range of motion, making the scissor cuts much more precise and efficient.

Pill Bottle And A Coin 

One of the OG weed grinding techniques. All you have to do is grab an empty pill bottle then put the bud that you wanted to grind in it. Throw a coin (dime or penny) in the bottle. (I suggest you clean the coin before putting it into the bottle with alcohol or sanitizer) Then screw on the bottle top then shake it up. Even that sticky icky won’t last against this tried and true method.

Blend It

Though this one is somewhat crazy, why not at least give it a try? If you love grinding your bud to a fine powder normally, this method will work for you. It’s definitely not the most effective since you’ll need to clean the blades of your blender pretty thoroughly, but it works!

Using A Homemade Weed Grinder 

If you’re really feeling a MacGyver vibe, making a weed grinder from scratch is the method for you. It’s not very useful if you don’t have all of the parts needed, but if you do it’s a great random skill to have! After making your first one, it will seem pretty straightforward and simple.

The main part is just a tin chewing tobacco can. Make sure the can is empty, then you’re ready for the next step. Next, pierce thumbtacks into the bottom and top of the tin can. Make sure the top and bottom row don’t overlap, or else the can won’t close and grind. After the thumbtacks are inserted with the correct spacing, add your bud and twist to your heart’s content. 

If you want to take things a step further, figure out a way to add a kief catcher!

If you’re not feeling crafty and just want an easy-to-use grinder, check out the grinders available on Dank Riot. The saved time is worth the investment.
