What are Pre-Rolls: A Complete Guide to Enjoy the Journey

The famous quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson tells us that “it’s not the destination, it’s the journey.” You know it, and your aunt who recently shared it on her Facebook page knows it. This is how Dogwalkers thinks. Every carefully crafted pre-roll can be lit to spark of freedom that can be lit when ready for use.   

If you’re new to analogies or are just beginning your journey with cannabis, start by considering the available options. Ask yourself: what will enhance your experience and offer the most convenience? A good place to start is cannabis pre-rolls.

What are Pre-Rolled Joints?

Cannabis for on-the-go, pre-rolls are ready to use, ground-up premium flower tightly rolled in paper for your immediate enjoyment. 

The ideal hiking companion, pre-rolls are small and smokeless. They also share a similar shape as cigarettes and don’t require the hassle and management that comes with using bongs or bowls.

Is it Better to buy Flower or Pre-Rolls?

If you’re up for the challenge, buying cannabis flower to roll your own product requires several steps, patience, and preciseness. 

Unless you would prefer to buy all the necessary tools, sit through a poorly produced youtube video, and potentially diminish your cannabis experience with a loosely rolled product, it’s best to leave it to the experts. Attempting to roll yourself also leaves room for inconsistent consumption. 

Budtenders that work on cultivation sites have a thorough understanding of how to balance quantity and potency. They also have the expertise to properly prepare a pre-roll in order to best complement the strains of cannabis used. 

But, we certainly appreciate your enthusiasm!

How to Light a Pre Roll?

Indulging in the perfect pre-roll is no doubt one of the best ways to enjoy cannabis. While many of you have a preference for how to light a pre roll, we have a couple of tips and tricks to share. 

Traditional Methods to Light your Pre-Roll

Some of the most common and convenient methods for lighting your cannabis pre-roll include traditional lighters and matches.

What if you find yourself in a situation where you don’t have a lighter or matches? You may be in luck. 

Dry Spaghetti

Dry Spaghetti is an ultra-flammable resource that can be used in a pinch to light your pre-roll. Simply take one end of a spaghetti piece and press it to a stovetop and you can use the spaghetti as if it were a match.

An Alternative Source of Fire

If you find yourself in the wilderness and run out of matches, a campfire is a great source for lighting your pre roll. 

Gather a piece of tinder from nearby and carefully light the tinder. Once the tinder is safely lit, you can begin to light your cannabis pre-roll. 

How to Enjoy a Pre-Roll

Enjoying a Dogwalkers pre-roll isn’t as tricky as it may seem. As noted earlier, you will want to make sure your pre-roll is evenly lit to avoid canoeing.  

Once your pre-roll is evenly lit and you are ready to start puffing, take a constant pull, then exhale slowly. 

A common misconception is that you smoke a pre-roll in the same fashion that you would a cigarette. This couldn’t be further from the truth. The secret to enjoying a cannabis pre roll is to control the way you inhale

If you don’t fully inhale the smoke into your lungs, much of the cannabinoids will be wasted as the smoke stays in your nasal passages and throat.

How to Make Your Pre-Rolls Last?

In order to make the most of your pre-roll, avoid lighting the end like you would with a cigarette.

Hold the flame a few centimeters from the tip of the pre-roll and slowly rotate it with your index finger and thumb to achieve an even burn. 

It is important to light the full circumference of your Big Dog or Mini dog pre-roll.

This will help to prevent canoeing of your pre-roll, where one side is lit and runs up the side of your pre-rolled joint.

If you’re looking to store your pre-roll for later consumption, there are a few ways to gently extinguish the flame to keep the integrity of the packed cannabis intact. 

Best practice is to not force the flame to go out. Before storing your pre-roll into the tin or tube it came in, place it on an ashtray to allow the flame to naturally burn out or slowly push the lit end downward.

Be sure your pre-roll is properly stored so you can experience peak freshness every time you light up!

What’s Different About Dogwalker’s Pre-Rolls?

Dogwalkers offers expertly packed pre-rolls, utilizing the highest quality of flower which are weighed to ensure consistency. 

Firstly, Mini Dogs are small enough to fit in your pocket and they come within a pack of five pre-rolls. Our Big Dog is a single large pre-roll stored in a reusable tube to save any remaining for later.

Dogwalkers prides itself on constructing its pre-rolls using only premium flower. Coming in three varieties to match your desired outcome, “Sit” leverages an Indica dominant strain known for its sedative and physical effects. 

“Play” uses a Sativa dominant strain known for its energizing, cerebral effects that can help unlock creativity. 

Finally, “Stay” is a hybrid of both Sativa and Indica strains that offer physical and cerebral benefits when combined.
