What’s a CBD pre rolled?
If you don’t know how to roll a cannabis joint, never fear. The market is filling with more and more pre-prepared, pre-packaged smokeable products or joints. That means you can go into a cannabis dispensary and buy pre-rolls that are ready to smoke. Your job is to spark up and smoke. You did it!
What’s in a CBD pre-rolled?
Depending on the source of your pre-rolled joints, they may contain a mixture of bud, shake, and trim.
The key ingredient to look for in any high-quality pre-rolls is bud or nug, a.k.a the ground-up bits of cannabis flower. They’re the parts that smell great and get you high. But given the nature of joints, you’re probably not going to rip open your joint just to take a peek at what exactly is inside.
The best way to combat this? Research. The brand behind your choice of CBD pre rolled should be able to reassure you via its best practices, the ratio of THC to other cannabinoids and terpenes present in the bud, and overall certification. If you’re skeptical, feel free to unroll your pre-roll and see for yourself.
There’s this common idea that CBD pre rolled are predominantly made up of shake—essentially the bits of bud that have fallen off the flower in the process of harvesting or packaging and may have dried out or had their trichomes (the potent little crystals all over the cannabis flower) damaged in the process.
And because some dispensaries make their own pre-rolls using the shake they’ve collected from the bud they sell, there’s a common misconception that all pre-rolls are made of shake and therefore suboptimal.
But if you buy your CBD pre rolled ready-made from a reputable brand with a transparent production process, well you can rest easy that you’re smoking the good stuff—not just the crusty run-off.
Okay, so trim is differentiated from the bud or shake in that it’s not made up of the cannabis flower at all. It’s more likely to be plant debris such as crushed up leaves, stems, or seeds, which are lower in THC—which is to say the chemical compound known for getting us stoned. It’s filler, basically. As such, avoid it.
If you find yourself in possession of a swaggy CBD pre rolled, you’ll find it was probably hand-made with dispensary off-cuts, and you’ll also find it’s harder to get stoned and it could feel harsh on your lungs. All the more reason to support brands that pride themselves on collecting the best flowering parts of the highest-quality grows.

Domestic CBD Pre Rolled vs. Foreign CBD Pre Rolled Industrial Hemp
Before the 2014 Farm Bill that legalized the cultivation of hemp for research or commercial purposes, all hemp products in the US were required to be imported.
With the increased popularity of CBD pre rolled, many industrial hemp producers took this opportunity to cash in on unexpecting consumers.
This has led to many products on the market claiming to be rich in CBD pre rolled that really don’t contain any at all.
Here’s something else to consider. Hemp is responsible for what’s known as phytoremediation.
Basically, hemp can be used to decontaminate soil at a very rapid rate by absorbing the various toxins it might contain.
The plant is so adept at removing toxins from soil that it’s been cultivated around the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site for over 20 years.
Without strict growing standards in other countries, industrial hemp can literally be grown anywhere.
This means that aside from products that contain little to no CBD pre rolled, consumers may also be getting CBD oil that contains the contaminants and toxins present in the soil the hemp was grown in.
Since the passing of the 2014 Farm Bill, however, there are a handful of states that have begun growing hemp in the US.
This has led to a noteworthy increase in domestic production, as well as increased options for quality industrial hemp-derived CBD pre rolled products.
Domestic industrial hemp must be certified and registered in the state its grown in, which upholds growers to much stricter standards than are found overseas.
Today, there are some 17,000 acres in the United States dedicated to domestic quality hemp production.
Many of the quality hemp CBD products available on the market today are produced with industrial hemp that is grown in Colorado.
FlorBiz CBD Pre Rolled Process
Once hemp is harvested growers should immediately move the floral biomass to the drying facility. This could be a simple structure like a barn. The facility should be under roof, out of direct sunlight, and well ventilated.
Growers need to set up several fans and have them blowing continuously. Significant ventilation is crucial! Ideal temperatures for drying and curing are 60 to 70 degrees F at 60% humidity.
A slow drying with high airflow will cure the hemp, produce a higher quality end product (better cannabinoid and terpene spectrum), and fetch a higher price and that's our secret sauce, we can not explain the secret drying system, but we take SLOW and 3 steps instead of 1.
Hanging entire plants upside down on wires in the drying barn is a common practice, we don't take this common practice since is easier to get mold in large quantities of flowers.
That's one of the reason our flower is so different, those plants dry the branches droop down in the formation of a closing umbrella. That closing umbrella shape results in less air flow to the center of that entire hemp plant.
Thus more mold and mildew will grow in that center portion. We break off the individual branches from the hemp plant and hanging branches on the drying wire, not whole plants. This step is more labor-intensive but will help minimize mold and mildew and provide beautiful Terpenes in the Plant.
FlorBiz CBD pre rolled is made with Fresh Buds (NO TRIM), and you can feel it while you smoke it. FlorBiz never makes a CBD pre rolled with DRY flower.
How pre-rolled joints are made
While the process of manufacturing pre-rolled joints varies from brand to brand, the process is generally the same across the board: the flower goes from farm, to manufacturing, to packaging, to store.
Want to get more specific? The best way to find out how your pre-rolls are made is to ask the brand you’re buying from.
How to compare pre-rolls
Not all CBD pre rolled are made equal, bb. Here’s how to compare and vet your pre-rolls, so you only smoke the best. Because you don’t deserve anything less.
How to tell if a pre-roll is good quality
In the professional opinion of Miss Grass (that’s us), the best way to think about good quality cannabis pre-rolls is the old adage: “Good in; good out.” That means it’s all about the grow.
If a brand’s cannabis grower is trustworthy and favors natural growing methods where possible, that involves the sun.
Although it’s worth noting that sungrown plants, while favorable, are less consistent in their strength and compound ratios. A greenhouse grow that, allows for sunlight where possible, will help make sure the pre-rolls are consistent in their effects every time.
If a brand’s manufacturing process prioritizes creating the highest quality product—not just premium flower but also in packaging and ease of use—then you know you’re in for a treat. So the easiest way to tell if a pre-roll product is good quality? Do your research.
It goes without saying, but that also means avoiding those hand-made pre-rolls that so many dispensaries are making and packaging themselves for a penny. They do that for a reason and the reason is shake and possibly schwaggy off-cuts. Instead, research the trusted brands who make manufacturing pre-roll products their true business.
A good brand’s packaging will always tell you about the ratio of cannabinoids and terpenes as well as provide some information on expected effects. If you ask your budtender (whether virtual or IRL) they’ll also be able to provide you with certification that goes into the product’s ingredients in more detail. Ahh, peace of mind.
How to tell if a pre-roll is fresh
A fresh cannabis pre-roll is a pre-roll that’s been packaged well. The reason packaging is important is because pre-rolls exposed to lots of air over long periods of time are going to dry out. A dry pre-roll is the opposite of a fresh pre-roll. Dry pre-rolls will feel scratchy upon inhaling, and may “crackle” a little when lit.
Conversely, if you find your pre-roll seems a little moist, it probably wasn’t dried out well enough during the production process.
How to keep CBD pre-rolled fresh
If you want your cannabis pre-rolls to stay fresh, just keep them as sealed as possible. You might also want to look for smaller or mini pre-rolls because with smaller run sizes, there’s less chance of holding onto old, stale flower.
Does price of CBD pre rolled matter?
When considering the price of CBD pre rolled, there are a few variables to keep in mind. Namely, the size and the count of the pre-rolls. Both will have a significant impact on the price of the product.
Some companies might offer a single, super large pre-roll joint with a super high THC ratio for the same price, or more. So it’s all relative and honestly, it depends on your priorities as a consumer.
State-by-state regulations for CBD pre-rolls
Pre-roll products vary widely state by state. For every state where recreational cannabis use is legal, there are different growers, manufacturers, and brands. For instance, you’d be amazed at how hard it is to have a California-based brand be able to supply a customer in Washington with their product. Such is the way of regulated markets, at least for now.
Even if you purchase the same brand of pre-rolls in Colorado as the ones that are sold in Nevada (because the brand you like is multi-state) then the growers and manufacturers will still be different, and for that reason, potentially the product.
What people look for in a pre-roll
If you’re interested to know how the average weed-lover uses CBD pre rolled, and why, you’ve come to the right place. Over 1,000 passionate and conscious cannabis consumers among Miss Grass’ audience recently took part in a real-talk survey on this very topic. Here’s how our majority-female audience consumes weed—especially pre-rolls.
When it comes to the old THC vs CBD preference, most women smokers prefer…both
It may not come as a total shock to you, but the majority of cannabis-friendly women we surveyed have no preference when it comes it smoking THC or CBD blends of flower; 66 percent of them like both—and we second them! Meanwhile, 32 percent of the people we surveyed prefer straight-up THC a.k.a getting high. The remaining 3 percent prefer CBD. All power to them.
Exactly how popular are good ol’ fashioned joints, you ask?
According to our survey, half of all weed-smoking women say they prefer smoking a joint to any other form of cannabis consumption. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, ya know? Another 45 percent say they usually reach for a pipe, bong, or vape.
But what do women want from smoking joints, anyway?
We asked the Miss Grass audience what they want from the joints they smoke and, fairly unsurprisingly, 90 percent of our weed-loving fam smoke joints do it to reduce stress. Relatable! And so are the other two main reasons those surveyed smoke joint: 70 percent do it to improve sleep and a whopping 83 percent simply do it to have fun. Same, girl. Same.
What kind of high do women want from pre-rolls?
According to the hundreds and hundreds of women we heard from, the most popular type of high that people want is a “slight but functioning” high. Meaning, you’re high, but you’re not all-out stoned on the couch.
Instead, you’re having great convos and getting stuff done. We like that. The next most popular high people want from pre-rolled joints is a “relaxing” high, while 18 percent want a “giggly” high (who doesn’t?), and 12 percent of those surveyed do in fact want to get super duper high. All power to them!
Smoking weed versus drinking alcohol—the age old question
Maybe you’re wondering how smoking pre-rolls or other joints affects your desire to drink? Well, for our audience of conscious cannabis advocates, weed has replaced alcohol in their lives in 65 percent of cases. And they’ve never looked back. For 20 percent of women surveyed, weed and alcohol play different but equal roles in their life, so they thoughtfully engage with both. The other 15 percent? They don’t drink or smoke, or both.
How popular are hemp CBD pre-rolls?
That’s a great question! After all, many people come to Miss Grass because of our curated and highly-vetted range of non-psychoactive hemp-derived CBD pre rolled products. Out of the women we surveyed, the majority (55 percent) haven’t actually tried smoking hemp pre-rolls but are totally curious. Which we love to hear! Meanwhile, 25 percent already love hemp pre-rolls. And the remaining 20 percent aren't so keen. Meaning, they’d prefer straight-up THC.
Advantages of pre-rolled joints
If you have issues rolling your own joints—whether for medical reasons, because you don’t like to roll, or simply because you don’t know how—then you’ll know one of the biggest draw cards for CBD pre rolled is their convenience. You don’t need any special skills or any special equipment. Just light and maybe an ashtray. Newbies rejoice! How much easier could it be?
Depending on the brand of pre-rolls, you’ll also be largely avoiding plastics or other disposable, non-biodegradable products. It’s 2020, baby! Let’s look after mother nature. When you throw out an environmentally-conscious pre-roll product (like Miss Grass Minis!) you can throw it guilt-free into your recycling bin.
Also, if you know anything about pre-roll joints you’ll know that sharing ones with friends is the most social of ways to consume weed. It’s a classic for a reason, ya know? It’s the social lubricant that alcohol wishes it was—it allows you and your group to feel chill, friendly, creative, talkative, and relaxed (with none of the shady decision-making and aggression).
Cons of pre-rolls
Like with any cannabis product (or food product for that matter), some pre-rolls are excellent and some will suck. The best way to avoid the cons? Do your due diligence as a consumer.
Common “cons” of CBD pre rolled include low-quality flower due to the presence of shake and trim, not being able to know what’s inside to avoid the low-quality product, and a general misunderstanding of the plethora of amazing pre-roll brands available today.
To avoid low-quality flowers, buy branded, pre-packaged pre-rolls—not the handmade ones full of dispensary off-cuts. They’re cheap for a reason! And if you want to make sure that what’s in your branded pre-roll is actually good quality rather than clever marketing, ask your budtender or brand customer service rep to provide details on flower ratios, farming or manufacturing practices, and anything else you’re curious about. It’s what they’re there for.
Any reputable brand will be happy to provide you with a Certificate of Analysis (COA) upon request. Or, they’ll make it available on their sites or in stores. If they don’t want to provide you with a COA, feel free to R.U.N away and get your pre-rolls somewhere else.
Lastly, remember that pre-rolls are still in the process of shaking off their reputation as the hotdogs of cannabis (cheap and crappy ingredients). But while certain stereotypes remain, the hotdog days are truly gone.
As long as you avoid dispensaries or brand that give off a distinctly hotdog stand vibe, metaphorically speaking. Branded pre-rolls all the way!
Where to find CBD pre rolled
If you reside in a legal state, you’ll find your local dispensary is still the best place to find branded pre-rolls. That way, you can see, smell, and touch the products before you decide to buy them.
You can also lean on the experience and knowledge of the budtenders who work there. Tell them what kind of effects you’re looking for—relaxation, pain relief, better sleep, creativity etc.—and they should be able to point you in the right direction.
If your state has legalized recreational cannabis, you’ll also be able to buy quality pre-rolls online, either from virtual dispensaries or directly from the brand’s website.
Which is super convenient. And speaking of convenience, delivery services make buying CBD pre rolled as straight-forward as ordering Postmates. All you need is a phone and a strong desire to stay home in your track pants.
A CBD pre rolled is a CBD joint you don't have to roll. As the most convenient type of CBD flower product, it's possible to light up your CBD pre rolled and inhale delicious smoke the moment you open your package.
Takeaway. CBD can be extracted from a cannabis plant, but it doesn't have the same ability to create a “high” or state of euphoria as marijuana or THC. CBD may help you feel relaxed or less anxious, but you won't get high if you choose to use a CBD-infused oil, tincture, edible, or other product.
Summary. While chronic cannabis use may increase the risk of dependence, CBD alone does not appear to have the potential for addiction or abuse. Preliminary evidence suggests that CBD may help treat substance use disorder.
A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids, which are unique to cannabis/hemp. Hemp Pre–Rolls are a great addition to your cannabis lifestyle, and you can incorporate them in many ways.
Pre–rolled joints are a relatively new product, providing cannabis smokers with a more convenient alternative. While faster and easier, pre-made joints have gotten an unfortunate reputation for being poor quality. The truth is that they can be good or bad depending upon how they're made and what's in them.
