Abstract

Herbs are commonly used and consumed in ground form. Depending on, for example, the size, shape, and type of herb or the desired application, the appropriate form of the ground herb may vary. An herb grinder with an adjustment plate for grinding an herb to multiple ground forms is described herein. Such a disclosure is advantageous over traditional herb grinders at least in that it reduces unnecessary clutter and operational inefficiencies by having one herb grinder configured to grind an herb into multiple forms.

Claim(s)

1 . An herb grinder, comprising: a grinding chamber including: a base with a base plate having an interior surface, an exterior surface, and a plurality of concentric rings of base holes, and a plurality of concentric rings of base teeth, the base teeth extending away from the interior surface; a cap configured to be coupled to the base and rotate relative to the base, the cap including a cap plate and a plurality of concentric rings of cap teeth, the cap teeth extending away from the cap plate, the cap plate opposing and being coaxial with the interior surface of the base plate when the cap is coupled to the base, each of the concentric rings of cap teeth being radially aligned with a corresponding ring of the plurality of concentric rings of base holes when the cap is coupled to the base; and an adjustment plate configured to be coupled to the exterior surface of the base plate, the adjustment plate including a plurality of concentric rings of adjustment holes, each of the concentric rings of adjustment holes being radially aligned with a corresponding ring of the plurality of concentric rings of base holes when the adjustment plate is coupled to the base plate, at least some of the adjustment holes at least partially overlapping with at least some of the base holes to form overlapping holes, wherein a combined area of the overlapping holes is smaller than a combined area of the base holes.;
8 . A method of grinding herb comprising: providing a grinding chamber with a base and a cap, the base including a base plate with an interior surface, and an exterior surface, a plurality of concentric rings of base holes, and a plurality of concentric rings of base teeth, the base teeth extending away from the interior surface; coupling an adjustment plate to the exterior surface of the base plate, the adjustment plate including a plurality of concentric rings of adjustment holes, each of the concentric rings of adjustment holes being radially aligned with a corresponding ring of the plurality of concentric rings of base holes when the adjustment plate is coupled to the base plate, at least some of the adjustment holes at least partially overlapping with at least some of the base holes to form overlapping holes, wherein a combined area of the overlapping holes is smaller than a combined area of the base holes; inserting an herb into the base of the grinding chamber; coupling the base with the cap, the cap including a cap plate and a plurality of concentric rings of cap teeth, the cap teeth extending away from the cap plate, the cap plate opposing and being coaxial with the interior surface of the base plate when the cap is coupled to the base, each of the concentric rings of cap teeth being radially aligned with a corresponding ring of the plurality of concentric rings of base holes when the cap is coupled to the base; and rotating the cap and the base relative to one another to grind the herb into ground form herb.
