How To Grind Weed Without A Grinder

A big question for those just starting to smoke weed is how to grind weed without access to a grinder. Thankfully there are several methods you can perform with common household items.  Below is a list of our favorites. We saved the best for last.

4 Ways To Grind Weed Without A Grinder

1. By hand, ripping your weed nugs apart, until you have small buds. It won’t get you a fine grind, but you make due with what you have.

2. Chop the weed with a sharp knife and cutting board or using a key.

3. If you are in the kitchen, you can always use a cheese graters or coffee grinders (But we don’t recommend it, and see why below).

4. Our favorite is to take a quarter and put it in a paper cup. Then take the desired amount of weed nugs and place it in the cup with the quarter. Finally, cover it and make sure to shake it in a circular motion. Do this for a few minutes, checking the consistency of the bud every now and then to make sure it’s grinding down to exactly where you want it. Keep shaking in a circular motion until you achieve the level of grind you want.

Check out this one below if you are new to grinders. It is basic and has a place to store your bud.


Remember anything you use to help you in this process will not only get sticky, but will also smell like weed. Due to this, try to avoid using anything that’s important to your daily routine or valuable. Cheese graters and coffee grinders are particularly hard to clean, so use them at your own risk. In the end, you are way better off using a dedicated weed grinder, but hey sometimes you have to improvise.
