Grinders are a crucial part of your dry herb experience, and believe it or not, some people still don’t have one in their stash box. A finely ground dry herb goes a long way in terms of session length, flavor, and stash conservation. Sometimes a grinder can create too fine of a grind, leaving pockets un-vaped and needing to be stirred every couple of draws; a “fluffy yet fine” grind is exactly what you need delivered from an herb grinder. Let’s take a look at what grinders can boost your next session and help your vape reach its full potential.
The Santa Cruz Shredder 4-Piece Grinder is worth highlighting because of its innovative features that bring out the best in your dry herb. This revolutionary grinder is crafted with a screen that sifts the smallest pollen particles into the bottom chamber so you can save it for later sessions. The anodized finish makes the Santa Cruz Shredder 4-Piece Grinder tough against scratches, thread damage, and tooth damage.
One of the standout features of the Santa Cruz Shredder 4-Piece Grinder is its innovative tooth design. The teeth aren't designed to be sharp-edged; sharp-edged teeth can easily dull, chip off, and even end up in your dry herb after heavy use. Instead, the Santa Cruz Shredder 4-Piece Grinder is equipped with squared-off teeth—leaving your ground dry herb fluffier than traditional grinders.
The ultra-powerful magnetic connection ensures your grinder top remains secure, while still allowing it to turn easily in either direction. Santa Cruz designed the Shredder with a unique threading pattern that protects the threads from grinding against each other while trying to connect—lowering the chances of it getting stuck.
To take your grinder experience to an entirely new level, we highly recommend you switch to the banana bros. OTTO grinder.

To use the banana bros. OTTO, just pop the top open, insert your dry herb, close, and press the button.

The Santa Cruz Vogue Aluminum Spray Grinder is perfect for those that want to make a statement. The spray can design is more than just eye-candy; the nozzle on top actually helps you turn the grinder more easily. Because of its larger size, this three-piece grinder is capable of holding more dry herb than a traditional grinder.
Included on the bottom of the Santa Cruz Shredder Vogue is a storage compartment that conveniently fits extra dry herb or vape parts.
