It used to be that the only “pre-rolls” out there were the joints that your buddy was kind enough to roll for you. Now that patients (and recreational consumers in legal states) can walk into a dispensary and purchase cannabis in pre-rolled fashion, it begs the question: why?
Well, there are pros and cons. There are those of us who are skilled at rolling it up, and those of us who aren’t. Some people like the process, some don’t. Maybe you’re a DIY’er, and take pride in your perfect grind. Or, maybe you love the convenience-factor of smoke-ready cannabis, straight outta the package. Different strokes for different folks.
However, there’s still an area of gray. Many people would indeed love to get in on the simplicity of pre-rolls, but there’s a skepticism surrounding the option. Think of the days you had to dish out the cash for an album, and simply hope all the tracks were going to be good. With pre-rolls, it feels similar; you don’t truly know what’s inside the case ‘til you’ve experienced it for yourself.
So before you find yourself with buyer’s remorse, here are three tips for making your preroll experience a positive one:
A revolutionary hack
If you lack the skills, or dexterity (as some patients do) to roll your own, but want more control over what goes IN your roll… consider cones! The makers of RAW rolling papers have simplified the rolling process by sealing the seam for you. Simply grind and fill, funnel-style. You can find more on RAW cones here.
Pre-rolls for a cause
While we’re on the topic, it’d be a miss not to mention the special pre-rolls we’ve created in partnership with the Veterans Cannabis Project. For every pack sold, $1 will be donated to help improve veterans’ access to quality medical cannabis. Learn more about the program (and participating dispensaries) here.
