I’ve recently become a fan of pre-rolls.
I used to strictly purchase dried cannabis flower plus roll our own joints.
I invested into the papers, grinder, rolling tray plus all of the necessities. Since there are hundreds of types of rolling papers available in weird sizes, materials, plus flavors, I was never quite sure what to buy. I officially stuck with the familiar 1 ¼ “ papers because they are easy to roll plus can fit a filter. I then had to figure out if I wanted hemp, rice, bamboo or flax papers. I tried to stay away from papers that use bleach or additives such as charcoal, once I had assembled all of our supplies plus shopped for dried flower at the dispensary, I then needed to grind the bud into a finer plus more consistent texture. I’d locale the filter at one end of the rolling paper plus fill the paper with the ground bud. I used around a half to a full gram plus then attempted to form the shape of the joint with our fingers, and rolling it back plus forth is supposed to pack the cannabis into its final cone shape. I usually made a mess. I either rolled the joint too loosely or too tightly. I consistently had trouble tucking the unglued side of the paper into the roll; Licking the edge is supposed to keep it tacked down. I never was rewarded with an even burn. Either the joint would burn up too fast or refuse to stay lit. I’ve finally given up. I am not proficient at rolling joints. The whole process is discouraging. It’s much easier to simply purchase pre-rolls. The dispensary sells top-shelf pre-rolls from some of the top producers. I can get top-shelf weed in a lovely variety of strains plus potency. They are sold in singles at a genuinely affordable price, which allows me to try new options. I can also buy our favorites in packs. Pre-rolls are often included in the dispensary’s sales plus weekly specials.
