Medtainer is a repurposed medical product that has been greatly accepting in the cannabis community and has inspired its use in other disciplines. The Medtainer quickly took off as the only smell-proof, water-proof grinder with a storage compartment.
Medtainers now seem to be everywhere from the Karma Cup judges kit to regular vendor markets and often companies will hand them out at conferences. Some Licensed Producers will give Medtainers to new or loyal patients. If you’re looking for a Medtainer, short of ordering it online, I recommend going out to some Toronto events and someone will have Medtainers for sale. Specifically 4/20 Toronto, Global Marijuana March and Karma Cup are all events with multiple vendors what would be worth visiting. To order online, visit their website here.
Medtainer Pricing & Selection:
Medtainer’s are simple to customize, with companies often having their own branded ones. There is also a line of older, exclusive superhero Medtainers that are more valuable and have been seen retailing for $25-$30 each. The standard medtainer usually retails between $10-$20, with $15 being the going rate. The XL Medtainer is available, but usually only in a variety pack. Check out the long list of Medtainer products and unique designs at their website here.
Unique to Medtainer:
The Medtainer is a unique product that was originally design to, “break down medication for… Pediatric and Geriatric patients”. Eventually it was noticed that the product would work great as a cannabis grinder, and there sparked the idea. With the product originally being designed for pills, it needed to be watertight and as a result became airtight. Though not originally designed with the cannabis consumer in mind, the product makes for a great grinder when out at a cannabis event. Being more affordable, hopefully you’ll be less heart broken if you accidentally loose it compared to a metal grinder. The Medtainer is also narrow enough to discretely slip into you pocket or purse. Unlike most grinders, the Medtainer has a storage compartment that is perfect for holding joints, rolling papers, filter tips, matches, and/or cannabis.
Medtainer Feel, Functionality, Quality:
I really like the simple design of the Medtainer, making it easy to use without any issues. The plastic smoothly slides against itself, with the longer you grind, the finer your cannabis will be ground. The plastic and design used make for a well functioning product, there’s not much more I can add.
Medtainer Looks & Visual Appeal:
The visual appeal of the Medtainer is great with an unlimited number of design options from Minions to Pokemon and even Ricky & Morty ones. See the full list here. Even the two-tone colours have a very cool, trippy look to them.
My Experience With Medtainer:
I have had a very positive experience with my Medtainers, always got to have a few close by. I love taking these out the events where I don’t want to loose my metal grinder and I have learnt that Medtainers work great for rolling joints in the wind. The deep grinding chamber prevents wind from blowing the ground up cannabis away until it’s dumped out onto the rolling paper and twisted.
