How to Grind Weed Without a Grinder


A weed grinder breaks up large chunks of marijuana into smaller, finer pieces so it can be rolled or placed into a bowl more efficiently. If you lack a commercial weed grinder, there are several ways to grind buds at home using a few common household supplies.



Using Scissors and a Shot Glass

  1. 1
    Place the marijuana buds you want grinded into a shot glass.
  2. 2
    Use scissors to snip the buds repeatedly for approximately one minute, or until all buds have been cut into pieces small enough as desired.[1]



Using a Coffee Bean Grinder

  1. 1
    Place the marijuana buds you wanted grinded into a coffee bean grinder.
  2. 2
    Grind the buds for approximately five seconds, then examine the buds to check their consistency. This helps prevent you from grinding the buds too finely into dust or a powder-like consistency.
  3. 3
    Continue grinding the buds for five seconds at a time until you produce the consistency desired.[2]



Using a Knife

  1. 1
    Place the marijuana buds you want grinded onto a cutting or chopping board.
  2. 2
    Use a knife to chop the buds repeatedly until the pieces are as small as desired.

    • Try using a non-serrated knife for the best results.



Using a Coin and Pill Bottle

  1. 1
    Place the marijuana buds you want grinded into an empty pill bottle.
  2. 2
    Drop a clean coin into the pill bottle, such as a nickel, dime, or penny.
  3. 3
    Shake the pill bottle repeatedly for about five minutes or longer until the buds have been thoroughly grinded. The coin will cut and grind the buds into small pieces as you shake the bottle.[3]
