It shouldn’t come as a surprise that you can’t buy weed on Amazon; at least not yet. You still see a number of products trying to pass themselves off as cannabis, however; such as the gummies that claim to be CBD (they’re not, trust us.) You even see the occasional product trying to brand itself as Delta 8. It doesn’t take a lot of digging to realize these items are not what they claim to be, and they should be avoided at all costs. That said, you can find cool gadgets and equipment related to weed, and even come across some unique discoveries. For example, here’s the best rated grinders you can now buy on Amazon:
What’s a grinder, again?
A grinder is a tool you can use to break up cannabis into small, smooth bits for bowls or for wrapping in rolling papers. You don’t necessarily need it to grind up your weed, but it definitely speeds up the process. Whether it’s for your own use or a gift, it’s an item worth considering.
Some grinders are very simple, while others have two or three different sections, with screens separating the bottom section from the top. This allows you to collect the trichomes, also called kief, in the bottom, which is called a kief catcher.
Why would you want to collect kief?
As kief is very potent, you can use it to make hash or your own edibles at home. Some users even use it to top off their bowls.
So what are these grinders?

Make sure you stay on top of cleaning your grinder regularly, so that you can make it last as long as possible. Grinders tend to get gunked up pretty quickly, so cleaning it after every other use is usually a good idea.
Disassemble the parts, soak them in alcohol for about 30 minutes, and then scrub them with a toothbrush or something similar. Rinse out the parts with warm water, then set them out to dry thoroughly before your next use. If for any reason you have a tough time removing all of the residue, freezing your grinder can help the residue stiffen up so that you can remove it more easily.
But once you’re done with that, it’s ready for use again. Enjoy!
