Pre Rolls Guide | The Best Pre Rolled Joints
It hasn’t been too long since the good tides have started rolling towards recreational marijuana globally. Though Canada only legalized non-medical weed in late 2018, folks have been adamant that marijuana use should not be considered a criminal offense since 1997. In other words, cannabis being illegal didn’t do much to stop stoners from enjoying it pre-2018.
For as long as anyone could remember, people have been innately drawn to anything no-fuss, and that’s why there’s always that designated roller in every friend group who is put in charge of preparing the joint that the whole clique gets to enjoy later.
Luckily, there’s a solution for these appointed rollers and the stoners who prefer to smoke alone hassle-free: pre-roll joints.
In this article, we will be talking about what a pre-roll is, along with some of the best pre-roll brands (in our opinion), and where to get them in Canada.
What are Pre-Rolls?
Pre-rolled joints are, in the simplest terms, joints that have been prepared (or pre-rolled) 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 pre-roll is everything that a joint is, except it’s made by professionals and leaves consumers to enjoy it to its full extent without all the hassles that come with rolling J’s.
Pre-rolled joints can come as singles or in packs of two or more. The sizes vary; some can be as small as pinky fingers and can be gone through with a few puffs, while others can be longer than ordinary self-rolled joints.
These pre-rolls are often offered in specific strains and flavors.
Why You Should Get Pre-Rolled Joints
Pre-rolled joints are a popular option for cannabis users who want to avoid rolling their joint or waiting the necessary time it takes to grind weed. Their best selling points are that they’re easy, convenient, and are available in a variety of options, but there are more merits to it that we will be looking closer into.
Although cannabis is organic and therefore has a shelf life, where the more aged weed may lose its potency and even flavor after a certain amount of time, pre-rolled joints can help extend that life span by coming in smart packaging methods.
- There’s one for users of all levels
Like we mentioned earlier, pre-rolls come in various strains and sizes. But they also come in more newbie-friendly varieties. Not only can cautious novices go for the smaller pre-rolls, they can also choose the regular ones as opposed to those that are “twaxed” or infused with highly potent concentrates (we know where you can get yourself either!).
- With enough research, you’re sure to always get what you pay for—or more!
For a time, makers of pre-rolls would include the dry plant parts in their ground cannabis to maximize the plant and, in effect, save costs.
Luckily, as legalization started and is continuing to spread in more parts of the world, the canna market has seen a rise in competition which has resulted in brands and manufacturers putting out one quality product after another.
So if you’re careful (which you most likely are if you found yourself looking up the best guide to pre-rolls), there’s very little chance you’ll get duped into buying inferior ones.
