As much as we all like rolling our own joints, it’s nice to not have to roll them yourself every once in a while. That’s why Snoop Dogg employs a full-time blunt roller in his entourage, that’s right, a guy whose sole responsibility is to roll blunts for Snoop.
But laziness is not the only reason why pre-rolls are a nice product to consume every now and then. Pre-rolls allow you to try different strains instead of going ahead and purchasing by the gram of a strain that you don’t know you like yet.
CBD pre-rolls specifically, give us the opportunity of trying a product that doesn’t really sit in every tokers stash box, CBD flower. Although CBD in its concentrate and vape oil format has taken off by now, CBD flower is not quite there yet. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best CBD pre-rolls in the game.
Top 7 CBD Pre-Rolls in the Market
1. Special Sauce Pre-Roll by Botany Farms
An incredibly high-quality flower grown using only organic processes and subject to the most challenging quality testing standards. Botany Farms stands at the forefront of CBD flower products. In fact, they stand at the forefront of all cannabis flower products with non-psychoactive effects. A tightly wrapped joint made with all flower and no trim. CBD content with this pre-roll oscillates around the 18.8% mark and comes ready for you to light up and enjoy at the end of a long day where relaxation is a must.
2. Cherry Wine CBD Pre-Roll by CBD American Shaman
A 1-gram cone pre-rolled using naturally harvested hemp flower. This cherry wine flavored pre-roll comes ready to light and smoke. An eco-friendly alternative tested using ultra-performance convergence chromatography. High testing standards make for a high-quality pre-roll and a smoking experience like no other CBD pre-roll in the game. The CBD American Shaman brand guarantees quality and satisfaction.
3. Secret Nature Frosted Kush CBD Pre-Roll
Secret Nature is a repeating brand in most of our CBD related lists, and that’s true merit to their high-quality standards and style. This pre-rolled CBD joint comes in a two-joint-pack made with approximately 0.6g of the finest ground hemp buds each.
Frosted Kush is an Indica-dominant strain with combined scents of gas, frosting, and berries. Every Secret Nature bud is made with organic, U.S. grown, hand-trimmed and hand-picked Hemp Flower buds.
4. Berkshire CBD Sour Space Candy
Another tightly wrapped joint made from the finest hemp flower around. Sour Space is characterized by a lemony, cheesy, and exotic fruit mixture of scents and aromas. Every Berkshire CBD flower goes through an incredibly high-standard quality testing process and is cured for a minimum of 60 days in cellared glass jars and only leaves the cellars once it’s been ordered. Fresh from the jar, is what I’m trying to say.
5. Loot Suver Haze
Every Loot pre-roll is made from hand-selected buds. This Suver Haze pre-roll is not the exception. A strain recognized by its slightly spicy black pepper flavors combined with fruity notes, and a distinctive Haze strain aroma. The hazy effects of the THC content version of the strain are evidently non-existent in this CBD heavy, 1-gram pre-roll.
6. Tillmans Tranquils Casino Cookies
Rolled using nothing but organic hemp rolling paper which allows this 1-gram perfectly tight pre-roll to be labeled as a non-GMO and 100% natural product. Third-party tested for pesticides and made with only U.S. grown hemp, this Casino Cookies Sativa-dominant CBD joint contains almost 20% CBD for a satisfying end-of-day smoke.
7. JustCBD Hawaiian Haze
Hawaiian Haze is a pretty well-known strain of the Haze variety. Personally, one of my all-time favorite Haze strains. However, this CBD joint pre-rolled with finely ground hemp buds is far from a traditional Haze style joint. You’ll find nothing but focus and clarity with this 1-gram Sativa-dominant pre-roll that boasts of 100mg of CBD per unit. A JustCBD signature series that also includes 180mg of other cannabinoids like CBDA, CBG, and THCA.
What are CBD pre-rolls?
Pre-rolls are the same for any type of flower, regardless of what it’s THC and CBD content is. Pre-rolls are joints that have been pre-wrapped by companies and sold intending to provide a small dose of a specific strain in a format that spares the consumer from having to roll their joint.
They’re nice to come by because they’re usually wrapped real tightly (could be manually or machine wrapped). In my case, pre-rolls are wrapped way better than any joint I can fathom, and that’s saying quite a bit because I’m actually a pretty decent roller (or so I like to think).
Pre-rolls are not exactly the best choice if you’re planning to buy more than one gram of a single strain. The whole thing that makes pre-rolls feasible for companies to sell is that they can charge a premium for ‘rolling man-hours’, packaging, and material used to wrap (rolling paper, filter, and additives). So if you already know you need a couple of grams from a specific strain, it just makes more sense to buy them in bud format.
What is CBD used for?
Personally, I like to use CBD in the morning, because I find it to make me alert and focused. But most people keep CBD for the evenings because it’s known as a great way to relax, unwind, and relieve muscle tension.
The truth is it depends on the product format of CBD you’re using. A topical cream is better suited for muscle cramps and aches while vaping and smoking has a faster onset that could potentially help with joint pain and in some cases, headaches.
The benefits of CBD pre-rolls
As companies and studies dive deeper into the fairly unknown world of CBD, claims for a wide variety of benefits and effects have popped up. While conclusive evidence is still lacking, and both clinical and preclinical studies are a rare find; recent scientific publications found that “preclinical and clinical evidence documenting value for CBD in some neuropsychiatric disorders, including epilepsy, anxiety, and schizophrenia”.
Other research and studies show CBD potential as part of a treatment for refractory epilepsy in children with Dravet syndrome. Clinical evidence also suggests its efficacy in HIV-associated neuropathic pain and multiple sclerosis spasms, but discretion is advised when it comes to more serious illnesses and a licensed physician should always be consulted before using CBD if you suffer from any medical condition.
Some of the documented benefits and uses associated with CBD include:
- Pain Relief
- Reducing Anxiety and Depression
- Combats Seizures
- Reduces Acne
- Neuroprotective Properties
- Substance Abuse Treatment
What to look for
Like any other harvest, CBD is grown, and the harvesting processes utilized will play a major role in the product’s overall quality. All manufacturing processes from seed fertilization to end-product packaging carry variables you should look out for when deciding to buy a specific CBD product or brand. Perhaps the most important tips I could give you are to make sure that the CBD product you buy complies with the below items:
- Made from U.S. Grown Hemp
- Organically Harvested
- Naturally Harvested
- Third-party tested
- Vendor Reputability
- Avoid low-grade industrial hemp CBD
