Sometimes we may lack specific appliances necessary for doing a certain action. But that does not mean said action cannot be completed using a different, improvised tool. Therefore, if you are afraid you will not be able to mill your weed without a grinder, do not be! Using materials at hand is a very popular option for those who do not need to grind weed on a daily basis. However, if you think you will be needing an instrument for chopping your buds regularly, then it might be a good idea to invest in your own weed grinder—it is not that pricey, and this way, you will forget about this problem once and for all.
Not an option for you? OK, then. There is a perfectly fine alternative to getting a manufactured weed grinder—it is making it on your own using only the common tools and materials everyone can easily find in their kitchen.
Turn any kitchen knife into a grinder: accompanied by a cutting board, it can be a great alternative, especially if there is a small quantity of cannabis you want to mill. If you have experienced chopping a salad, you are familiar with the crux of the matter. But there is still one important tip—do not use a serrated knife.
If dealing with a knife seems to be a bit simple and therefore, unattractive to you, then look into using a coffee grinder. It is considered to be the best way to grind an imposing amount of weed for someone not in the possession of a marijuana grinder. Put the pot into the container of the coffee grinder and start its engine. Be careful not to overdo the grinding. In order not to do that, you have to keep your eye on the time; otherwise, you are risking to get your weed powdered instead of delicately crushed and ready to consume. Also, remember to clean the device thoroughly, otherwise, one of your siblings is going to have a very stimulating cup of coffee.
If the perspective of chopping weed like onions or grinding it like coffee beans does not appeal to you, use nail scissors or your own fingers. The latter will not work if your pot is not dry enough. In that case, you will end up making a huge mess—mashing marijuana in vain rather than mincing it the way it was meant to be done.
As we can see, where there is a will, there is a way. You can beat without a beater, chop without a chopper, and even get by without a grinder in case if you need to grind weed.
