Pre-rolls – consumer ready joints of marijuana pre-rolled and ready to smoke for your convenience, are a product that true cannabis connoisseurs normally pass on. That’s because most dispensaries roll their pre-rolls with low quality cannabis. After all, these are usually used as new patient giveaways or bonuses.
If you are luckier you will find pre-rolls made from shake, the small crumbs that break off from larger buds. Shake pre-rolls can be decent, depending on the stains that contributed to it. In most cases, the pre-rolls you find will be a “salad,” in other words a mixture of many different strains.
Sure it’s convenient to purchase joints as you would cigarettes, especially if your rolling skills are sub-par. Pre-rolls are perfectly ground, packed, and rolled, and all the consumer has to do is put flame to paper and enjoy. But when you want quality, the pre-roll case is usually not where to find it. Until recently…
There is a new trend in the cannabis industry of premium pre-rolls and it’s a very good thing. Instead of just a way to use up otherwise unusable product, manufacturers are now producing pre-rolls with quality and care, using first quality premium cannabis.
You can get today’s premium pre-rolls in a single strain, or augmented with concentrates. Different companies focus on different attributes, so you are sure to find a pre-roll that’s right for you.
I will add to this article as I try more of these products, but to get you guys going here are three premium pre-rolls I have recently sampled with happy results:
Marley Naturals – To be honest I was not expecting much as I thought this brand to be all hype and marketing. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The Marley Natural pre-rolls come 3 to a pack, are rolled in natural unbleached paper with a crutch filter. The joints provided a smooth, tasty, potent smoke with a long lasting mellow high. At about $5.00 a joint the price was right too and they come packaged in a nice reusable tin.
Humboldt’s Finest – Grown in California’s premier cannabis region, Humboldt’s finest pre-rolls are rolled from all bud, no leaf, natural sun grown outdoor marijuana. Available in singles or six packs consumers will find a number of single strain pre-rolls to choose from. I especially enjoyed the Cookies strain, and shared it with some guests who are not frequent smokers. The evening erupted into ongoing gales of laughter and a turbo-charged case of the munchies, but a great time was had by all. My guests could not wait to go out and buy more Humboldt’s Finest pre-rolls!
Cavi-Cone — These extremely potent pre-rolls contain a half-gram of hash rolled into every joint. They come in a variety of flavors. Personally I want my weed to taste like weed, not strawberries or some other artificial flavor, so I always go for the “original,” meaning no flavor added variety. I can’t say the Cavi-Cone provides smoothest smoke or the best flavor, but it is highly effective. The joint burned well too, which can be a challenge with hash infused joints so kudos for that . If your priority in choosing a pre-roll is maximum potency and a strong high, this is a hard one to beat.
