THE ULTIMATE PRE-ROLL BUYERS GUIDE

So you’re starting to dip your toes into the world of cannabis, but you don’t know quite where to start. You want something simple you can enjoy while going about your day, or, perhaps to pair with your afternoon walk. Naturally, joints make perfect sense for your go-to cannabis product.  

There’s just one catch, hand-rolling a joint can be a tedious and time-consuming process that takes years to perfect. Thankfully, you no longer have to train to become a rolling master in order to reap the benefits of a perfectly packed joint.

Pre-rolled joints commonly referred to as pre-rolls, provide an easy solution to the frustration caused by multiple failed attempts to self roll. Just like any purchase, you’ll want to brush up on your cannabis knowledge to make sure you’re getting the right pre-roll for you. 

WHAT IS A PRE-ROLL?

Never heard of a pre-roll? Well, you’ve been missing out! A pre-roll is a perfectly prepared and pre-packaged, ready-to-smoke product that helps you get on with your plans for the day without having to spend hours fumbling around with rolling papers, grinders, and homemade filters.

WHAT’S IN A PRE-ROLL?

There’s a lot of misinformation surrounding the pre-roll category, with claims that the ingredients aren’t high quality, but we can assure you that’s not the case if you’re looking at the right brands. Just like when you’re at the store searching for your next pair of walking shoes, you’ll find high-quality models, but you’ll also see those dingers that should’ve never seen the light of day. 

The key is to find pre-rolls that are made from high quality, full cannabis buds, as opposed to the trim or shake.

HOW ARE PRE-ROLLS MADE?

Pre-rolls are made just like you would make your own joints at home except they are made in a controlled environment, producing a pristine product at scale. Each pre-roll is made from your choice of cannabis strain, packed neatly into a paper “cone” with a built-in crutch.

HOW TO DETERMINE THE QUALITY OF A PRE-ROLL?

When it comes to a high-quality pre-roll, it all starts with the flower that is packed inside. Be smart and do your research on the brand you’re buying, before you hand over your money and end up with a product full of shake and a disappointing experience. 

There are two crucial questions you should ask your pre-roll supplier:

  •  What is the quality of the flower being used?
  • What’s the profile of cannabinoids and terpenes in this product? 

HOW TO KEEP PRE-ROLLS FRESH?

Think of your pre-rolls like you would that last piece of cake you’re saving for when you have the late-night munchies. You’re not just going to let it sit out on the counter, uncovered, to get stale overnight. You’re going to properly seal it and keep it in a controlled climate to ensure it stays as fresh as it was the day you bought it. 

Keeping pre-rolls in a sealed container or zip-top bag will allow for optimal freshness. Brands that package their pre-roll products in air-tight tins or tubes, have already addressed this crucial step for you!

WHERE TO FIND THE BEST PRE-ROLLS?

With the growing popularity of pre-rolls, you can find an array of options at many of the local dispensaries in any state that has legalized recreational or medical cannabis. 

If it’s your first time buying a pre-roll product, it’s best to browse the selection at your local dispensary in person and lean on the budtenders’ knowledge and recommendations. After all, they’re there to help you find the best products that will ultimately result in the best experience.
