4 Weed Hacks

Every stoner knows the importance of having a trustworthy grinder. It’s the true 420-companion and is a MUST, to create the perfect joint. For those of you that are new to grinders, a grinder is an object that breaks up large chunks of weed to smaller, finer pieces, so that the weed can be rolled and smoked evenly.

If you lack a grinder and are in need for a quick solution, then these 4 Macgyver ways could do the trick.

1) Scissors and a Glass

This one is simple and used by most people. Simply place the weed in a cup, take a pair of scissors and snip away. Cut all the weed into pieces or until you reach your desired size.

2) Using a Kitchen Knife and Board

This is another easy way to grind your weed. Ever cut parsley or some other herb on a chopping board? So the technique is the same. Simple place the weed on a chopping board and chop away. Remember, you want to cut the weed up finely, but not too fine.

3) Using a Coin and Pill Bottle

This is an old trick but used by those who are stuck in a rut. Take a pill bottle, or any bottle that has a cap. Place the weed into the bottle. Take a clean coin and put it also in the bottle. Close the lid and start shaking like you’re a Native American with rattles in a ceremonial dance. Shake the bottle for about five minutes. That should do the trick!

4) Use a Coffee Bean Grinder

Place the bud into a coffee grinder and hit the “On” button for about 5 seconds. Just make sure you don’t grind the bud too finely as it will turn into dust.
