Tectonic9 Auto Dispensing Grinder from Cloudious9 review

Grinders have been available for many years and all operate on the same basic principle: two sets of counter rotating blades chop your herb to a usable consistency.

The list of features that serve to separate the multitude of grinders are usually constrained to its construction materials, the tooth design and the resulting grind size.

Occasionally some new innovation new comes along that makes you realize there is a better way to do things. The Tectonic9 Auto Dispensing Grinder from Cloudious9 is arguably the most disruptive of those innovations to ever grace the stage; a true quantum leap in the herb grinding industry.

Evolution of the Grinder

The basic 2-piece grinder evolved into the 4-piece grinder with the addition of a screen to make it possible to separate and collect kief. Somewhere along the way, the inevitable transition to electrically powered grinders came about but have received mixed results. They were convenient but were also prone to jamming, and the grind sub-par.

Aside from these advances, there has been precious little developmental disruption in the grinder market until now. There are a multitude of devices that yield a decent grind, but collecting your finely shredded prize is typically a messy affair involving scoops and picks. Electrical grinders can both grind and dispense, but they frequently excel at neither.

A Tectonic Shift in grinding

The Tectonic9 Auto Dispensing Grinder from Cloudious9 solves this with a unique merger of modern technology with a quality mechanical grinder. The Tectonic9 allows for the grind to be performed manually like most grinders. Dispensing is greatly simplified with the incorporation of a unique vibratory system that dispenses your herb in exactly the amounts you need at the push of a button.

First Look

The Tectonic9 grinder hosts a slew of exciting features not yet seen in the grinding industry. Its 28 CNC manufactured diamond shaped grinding teeth housed inside a space grade anodized aluminum alloy body generate a perfectly fluffy grind.

This high-tech grinder features a special internal structure designed to facilitate an even dispensing experience. There is even a viewing window with LED light to watch your contents take form. A sleek matte finish and a textured grinding grip round out the elegant appearance.

A good Vibe

The built-in vibration motor is optimized at the perfect vibration frequency. This allows for a smooth flow of herb to exit the flip-out pour spout to accurately guide your river of weed to its destination. It is operated by way of a single button that controls all operation.

Grind as normal, slide open the der & flip up the spout, then push the button to dispense your desired amount. The sliding door keeps your contents secure when not being used, and the pour spout swings away to nestle recessed under the grinder bottom.

If you often pre-grind some flower to carry with you for the day, like I do, this pour spout makes it super easy to dispense your fluffy goodness directly into your portable smell proof storage weed container.

The Grind

The incredibly sharp teeth of the Tectonic9 produce a light, fluffy grind. Not too large, not to small – it is well suited for use in just about every scenario. The chamber is ample enough to accommodate larger buds with ease. The dispensing chamber holds plenty enough for a good session with your friends.

The Tectonic9 performed admirably with both dry and sticky material, shredding and dispensing each like a champ. After a few grinds I checked under the hood.

Dry flower leaves nary a trace of foliage to be found, while the sticky bud deposits  only a few tiny remnants in the grinding chamber. These bits are easily dislodged with a few taps.

More Specs

The Tectonic9 is large enough to be used as a reasonably high-volume grinder, but not overkill for a solo session. The grinder weighs in at 9 ounces so while it has some heft, it’s definitely still portable.

Nestled inside the base of the unit lies a 320mAh rechargeable Lithium Ion battery. This provides the grinder with 60-120 uses per charge, depending on duration. The battery will charge completely within 1 hour, so you won’t have to wait long if you accidentally let it drain.

When you buy this quality grinder, you will also get peace of mind knowing that your purchase is protected by a 3-Year Limited Warranty.
