Pre-rolls and Other Fun Ways of Consuming Cannabis

Understanding pre-rolls

Pre-rolls or pre-rolled joints are virtually self-explanatory. These are joints or wraps that have been rolled for the patient before purchase for their convenience. Virtually every dispensary across the nation offers some form of pre-rolled joints and wraps.

Examining pre-rolls

Contrary to popular belief, THC-laden cannabis is not the only thing featured in pre-rolls. Pre-rolled joints and wraps come in all shapes and sizes and can contain a specific profile of cannabis, cannabinoids, concentrates, or terpenes. Examples include CBD pre-rolls, kief joints, and even cigar-sized cannabis wraps.

Making pre-rolled cannabis

Thanks to modern technology, the days of hand-rolling joints are a thing of the distant past. Companies make pre-rolls with the help of a tumbler and roller. Patients can purchase consumer-based variations of the apparatus mentioned above at their leisure to create their very own unique pre-rolls. However, most cannabis cultivators and dispensaries do not roll joints by hand. Instead, they use equipment ranging from $2,500 to $35,000 to create these pre-rolled joints. Despite the initial price tag, the equipment used to craft most pre-rolls can save a dispensary or cannabis cultivator more in the long run because it cuts down on quality control and labor expenses.

Hemp wraps

One type of pre-roll enjoyed by patients is hemp blunts. Dispensaries wrap pre-rolled joints in hemp-based leaves instead of the traditional tobacco-based wraps. Patients prefer hemp wraps because it is typically less harsh than tobacco. Moreover, these pre-rolls can contain cannabinoids aside from THC or CBD. Therefore, hemp wraps can contain CBN and CBDA. The former, in theory, helps further the Entourage Effect.

Classic paper plane joints

The most popular form of pre-roll is referred to as the classic joint. These joints typically contain anywhere from 0.3-to 1g of traditional cannabis buds. The conventional size of classic joints is approximately 1 & ¼ inches. This is why no more than a gram is usually packed into classic pre-rolled joints.

Thai sticks

Have you have seen those luxurious cannabis-based cigars on social media within the last year? These ‘cannabis cigars’ are often referred to as Thai sticks. These pre-rolled joints contain more forms of cannabis than the pre-rolls, as mentioned above. This type of pre-roll comes in the name of the kind of cannabis-based cigars available throughout Thailand since the early 1960s. Thai sticks are packed with traditional cannabis buds, and cannabis concentrates such as wax or keif. Thai sticks can contain anywhere from 3.5-8g of cannabis concentrate.

Moreover, Thai sticks are wrapped in a variety of ways. For example, cannagars can be covered in different leaves. Some types include raw cannabis leaves, hemp-based wraps, or the tobacco broadleaf in which traditional cigars are rolled. Due to the necessary hand-rolling and amount of cannabis and cannabis concentrate found in Thai sticks, this form of pre-roll is typically the most expensive.

King-sized pre-rolls

The last type of pre-roll worth mentioning is King-sized joints. Typically referred to as ‘doobies,’ this form of pre-roll is similar to classic joints. However, doobies are rolled in a longer paper with nearly triple the cannabis capacity. The size of king-sized joints is about 4 inches long. The increased power of king-sized joints allows cultivators and dispensaries to add not only more cannabis flowers but cannabis concentrations as well.
