Whether you’re a first-time smoker or a seasoned pro, there’s no doubt that the process of buying cannabis can sometimes be challenging. Offering dozens of fancy strains touting different medicinal effects and a laundry list of pipes, vapes, and devices to smoke with, the amount of variety that modern dispensaries have can often leave less-experienced smokers confused.
While our staff is always available to answer questions and guide you through the process, understanding your options and knowing what to look for before coming in can make the dispensary experience much more enjoyable.
If you’re looking to get into cannabis but are unsure of where to start, pre-rolls are an excellent way to get the benefits of flower without needing to learn the skills behind rolling a joint!
We’ve created this helpful guide on everything you need to know about pre-rolls, so you can understand what to look for next time you visit Oasis Cannabis Dispensary.
What are Pre-Rolls?
Simply put, pre-rolls are joints that have been pre-prepared and packaged so that they’re ready to smoke whenever. They’re usually made by being loaded and rolled by a machine to ensure a consistent packed tight product and burns cleaner than any hand-rolled joint or blunt.
These products are extremely popular among newer smokers, as they don’t require the knowledge or technique of learning how to roll a joint (don’t worry, we’ll cover that in another blog). What used to take a few minutes to assemble can now be purchased and smoked within seconds! Your only responsibility is lighting up and enjoying the smooth taste of your newly purchased flower.
What’s in a Pre-Roll?
Pre-Rolls can be made with any strain of cannabis and can sometimes be infused with oils or concentrates to add an extra kick of THC for a stronger effect.
The contents of pre-rolls can usually vary depending on the manufacturer, with the overall quality hinging on whether they’re packed with bud, or shake which is often considered the “leftover” and undesirable part of the plant. Pre-rolls with fresh bud will contain higher concentrations of THC and more fresh terpenes that give the quintessential smell and taste that seasoned cannabis smokers love.
Tips for Buying Pre-Rolls
Know Your Preferences
The effects of cannabis are subjective and dependent on the person, so it’s a good idea to determine your preferences before entering the dispensary and figure out a budget. There are plenty of different options to choose from, so take some time to think about whether you want something lighter and easier to smoke or a product more expensive but also more potent.
The great thing about pre-rolls is their affordability, so if you aren’t sure exactly what you want, be flexible and try something new!
Look at the Packaging
While it shouldn’t be the final say in your purchase, examining the packaging of a pre-roll can sometimes be an effective way to determine the overall quality of the product. Avoid packaging that is not entirely airtight, as the joint is most likely dried out and will not burn as well.
Talk to your Budtender
When choosing a pre-roll to meet your personal needs, our dispensary guides are often the most helpful resources to talk to. They are well-versed and experienced with all products on the menu. They are also trained to explain the complicated aspects of cannabis like terpenes, trichomes, and THC ratios, in a way that is easy to understand
Our Favorite Pre-Rolls
A hybrid blend of White Nightmare and White Strawberry strains, this 1g pre-roll is the perfect size and potency for a newer smoker looking to get into joints and flower. With THC levels ranging from 19%-22%, the strain provides a fruit-forward, uplifting and sense-enhancing high.
These .5g “rockets” are 2X infused with ultra-premium distillate oil and crumble, then hand-packed to perfection to ensure a slow, even burn. The calming “island breeze” effects come from a combination of Sunset Sherbert flower infused with a Sativa Honeycomb crumble. At 43.4% THC, this pre-roll has a somewhat more potent effect, so if you’re new to smoking, remember to go slow!
If you’re getting into pre-rolls and want to step up your game, pre-rolled blunt wraps are known for a slower burn and a bold, rich taste that you can’t get from regular papers. You get two pre-rolls per pack, perfect for a long smoke sesh or for sharing with a friend!
