The Beginners Guide to Pre-Rolls

For someone new to the cannabis world, rolling up a joint can be one of the most challenging ways of smoking marijuana; it requires some technique and experience behind it. Fortunately, the existence of pre-rolls has made everyone’s life easier, and we’re pretty sure that it will make your life simpler too. 

A significant advantage of cannabis pre-rolls is that you can take them literally everywhere you go. They’re prepped for you, so all you have to do is light up. Cannabis pre-rolls are so discreet that they can be confused with regular cigars. 

In addition, weed pre-rolls can be a great way to try out different strains and different types of buds without committing to buying an entire 3.5 grams. So whether you’re looking to enjoy some Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid pre-rolls instead of flower buds, this will give you a chance to sample different kinds of bud in smaller amounts. 

This article will explain everything a beginner must know when having pre-rolls for the first time. In addition, we will explain what weed pre-rolls are, the pros & cons, 5 valuable tips on weed pre-rolls, and our personal favourite top 5 weed pre-rolls you must try.

What are Weed Pre-Rolls?

Weed pre-rolls are joints that have been prepared by cannabis sellers, dispensaries, or brands. The ground-up cannabis is rolled like a cigarette in a hemp wrapper, with a filter lodged securely at the joint’s tip. 

A cannabis joint is made by professionals and leaves consumers to enjoy it fully without all the hassles that come with rolling joints. Pre-rolled joints can come as singles or in packs of two and more. These pre-rolls are often offered in specific strains and flavours.

Let’s take a closer look at Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid Pre-Rolls…

Even though you might be a newbie in cannabis, you’ve probably heard of famous terms such as Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. These are cannabis strains and are very different from the others and provide various benefits depending on your needs.

Sativa Pre-Rolls

Sativa pre-rolls are ready-to-go joints that give you an uplifting and cerebral experience. In addition, Sativa strains are known for being intense due to a distinct terpene profile that produces aromas ranging from fruity, citrus, and sweet to earthy, piney, and peppery.

Regarding medical marijuana, Sativa is often used by patients with mental challenges and mood issues. Finally, Sativa is sometimes used to manage discomfort and help those dealing with tension find some relief.

Indica Pre-Rolls

Indica is a type of cannabis strain that produces calming and relaxing effects. Indicas originally grew in cold, northern climates, typically said to be relaxing. They grew short and dense because of their environment, and their growing life cycle is faster so they can get harvested before the cold and wet of fall and winter set in. 

Regarding how Indica strains look, short and stocky, with broad and chunky leaves, they flourish faster and produce more buds than Sativa. They also have a musty, earthy aroma with mildly skunky notes.

Hybrid Pre-Rolls

Hybrid strains are plants that combine the benefits of Sativa and Indica. Most cannabis today is a hybrid marked as either Indica- Sativa-dominant, rather than pure Indica or Sativa. This is because original cannabis strains that maintain their native characteristics are hard to come by in today’s cross-breeding, global market. 

When it comes to appearance, hybrid strains are known for being tall with bushier leaves, short with thin leaves, and have a variety of unique qualities that make it evident they are a more modern cultivar than a landrace strain.

The Pros and Cons of Weed Pre-Roll Joints

Cannabis pre-rolled joints are one of the most popular ways of consuming weed. They are easy to use and less expensive than other methods of consuming cannabis. Here’s a close look at their pros and cons:

The Pros of Pre-Rolled Joints:
  • Disposable and easy to use
  • Ability to try out new strains 
  • Cost-effective
The Cons of Pre-Rolled Joints:
  • Uneven burn rate
  • Quality of Cannabis

When buying cannabis pre-rolls, always ensure you’re buying from trustworthy companies that provide quality and premium cannabis. With cannabis legalization in Canada, some dispensaries aren’t legit, and as a result, you’re consuming only the bad stuff.

5 Valuable Tips on Weed Pre-Rolls

Take your pre-rolls to the next level following these 5 tips:

Add a Paper Filter

When a joint is rolled, it will have an open and closed end. You’ll close this open-end using the paper filter without needing extra material. In addition, the smoke won’t feel as strong, and it will prevent you from coughing.

Keep the Smoke Inside Your Lungs for a While (Zero It!)

If you want a better and more potent effect, you should try to keep the smoke inside your lungs for a while. This way, you’ll make sure that all of it gets absorbed by your body and will have an impact on you as soon as possible.

Make Sure There’s Enough Room at One End

When smoking weed, make sure to leave enough room at one end of the joint; by doing this, the air should flow better. The end that has the most room should be at the top, and you’ll need to use a sharp object like a pen or scissors to leave enough room for airflow.

Create a Soothing Atmosphere for Enjoyment

The atmosphere you choose for lighting up your cannabis pre-roll should be somewhere you feel comfortable and relaxed. To create a great vibe when smoking your weed pre-roll, make sure to make your room darker, play some chill music, lay down in a comfy position, and play a show or some visuals while seshing out.

Hold Down The Tip While Lighting

Make sure to hold down the tip of a pre-roll before lighting it. This will ensure the weed doesn’t go up in smoke too quickly and that your pre-rolled joint is going to last as long as you need or want it to.
