CBD Pre-Rolls: The Pros and Cons

 CBD Pre-Rolls: The Pros and Cons

CBD pre-rolls have become increasingly popular over the last few years. These pre-rolled joints are made using flower devoid of any mind altering THC, instead being infused with CBD and other natural ingredients. Patrons may be wondering about the benefits and drawbacks to purchasing CBD pre-rolls.


There is no chance of a marijuana high from these products which can be ideal for those new to cannabis or those who want to avoid an intoxicating experience while still enjoying the medical benefits. Cannabis lovers who prefer not to smoke due to their personal situation or preference may also prefer these products as they still offer an effective dose of relief without the smoking process required in traditional smoking methods.


Patrons may have trouble finding these products at their local dispensary. Since the popularity of pre-rolls has increased, many dispensaries are carrying them as they are quick and easy to produce compared to flower. Patrons may need to do some research in order to find a dispensary that carries these products or may have to wait until the flower it is made from is available in the future. The smoke produced by these joints can be harsh on the throat and lungs, unlike smoking traditional joints and blunts which cause less irritation due to their larger amount of bud material compared to pre-rolls.


CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound found in cannabis that has been proven to have therapeutic qualities. CBD can be used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, anxiety and cancer without producing an intoxicating effect. Pre-rolled joints offer a new form of delivery for this powerful medication.

Why Pre-Rolled Joints?

CBD Pre-Rolls use less of the flower stalks compared to traditional joints and blunts which can be harmful to someone’s throat and lungs if they are not smoked correctly.

What’s in them?

CBD-infused flower is added to a liquid base to create the pre-roll. The liquid base includes terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids such as THC, CBD and CBG. Some joints use only the pre-rolled flower while others include the liquid base in their body as well.

When should they be taken?

The medication contained in pre-rolls should not be smoked until an hour or two after it has been consumed at least 40 minutes before smoking it. Burning your throat for an extended period of time will cause more damage than smoking a joint or blunt that was smoked correctly.
