Whether you are in Chicago, New York, or Timbuktu and whether you’re a recreational marijuana user or a medical cannabis patient, a good weed grinder is a must-have tool for you. Grinding your herbs thinly and evenly is essential for both joints and vaporizers, because it produces a more satisfying and more efficient experience. If there is no grinder shop in Chicago or nearby, there are some excellent online weed grinder shops. Many times these shops will have a larger selection, cheaper prices (even after you add shipping costs), and your order will usually be delivered in two to three days.
here are two of my favourite cannabis grinder shops.
When you choose a Chicago herbal grinder, there are three main factors you should take into account: price, material and number of parts or compartments.
Weed Grinder Material
Weed grinders are made of acrylic, wood or metal – aluminium and titanium.
Acrylic grinders are the cheaper of the three. The better acrylic marijuana grinders do a pretty good job, and another advantage is that you can get them in all different types and colours.
Wooden Grinders look nice. They can do a decent job, and usually there teeth are made of metal. the problem with wood grinders is that they only come in the two piece one compartment version.
Aluminium and titanium grinders are usually the best. Check them out at your store – they come in all sizes, they are sharp and durable. Aluminium weed grinders cost more, but they are definitely worth the price and will last forever.
Weed Grinder sizes
Cannabis grinders with one compartment are made of two pieces. The weed is put in between the base and the cover and is ground by the sharp teeth. The disadvantage of 2 piece shredders is that the weed might get stuck between the teeth and not come out fine enough and even enough.
because of this the god of weed invented the two compartment pot grinder. The shredding compartment is the same as in the one compartment grinder, but at the bottom there are small holes, leading to the second compartment. This allows the small particles of the ground cannabis to gather in the second compartment, making the shredded weed even and easy to take out. there are also three compartment Chicago weed grinders. the third compartment is separated from the second by a fine screen, that allows only the tiniest particles, known as pollen or keif, to gather. Keif is the most potent part of the marijuana flower, and gathering it is like gathering a treasure.
As you will see at you local head shop, these grinders usually come in a variety of colours, and also in different sizes and diameters.
