Marijuana connoisseurs can now experience the soothing qualities of that plant in any number of ways. Due in part to it becoming more accepted in different circles of society, experimenting with marijuana has turned into own little cottage industry of sorts.
Still, others prefer not to complicate a classic. Instead of trying out the many novel ways in which marijuana is prepared, many default to simply rolling up a joint and smoking it. That’s the way marijuana has been enjoyed for a long time and there’s certainly nothing wrong with continuing to do so.
Newer fans may not be familiar with the art of rolling a joint though and that’s not exactly common knowledge that is being passed down through the family just yet. Plus with marijuana becoming more in demand, more folks have sought more convenient ways to enjoy that aforementioned plant.
Because of those reasons mentioned above, the items known as pre-rolls have emerged.
What Is a Pre-Roll?
A pre-roll is a joint or blunt of marijuana that was prepared before its intended time of consumption.
It’s not a perfect comparison, but there are similarities between a pre-roll and those pre-cooked meals that people get when they are too busy to prepare dinner after getting home from work. Being convenient is not their only shared quality though.
Just as those pre-cooked meals are often regarded as low-quality food that just work to fill up your belly while offering no real culinary value, pre-rolls have also developed this reputation for containing substandard marijuana that pales in comparison to the stuff used in more conventional joints.
But is this notion that pre-rolls contain poor quality marijuana warranted or misguided?
Back in 2016, Leafly took a closer look at the pre-roll in an attempt to figure out not just what goes inside of one, but to also understand why so many fans of marijuana have not warmed up to it.
Over the course of speaking to numerous dispensary owners, marijuana producers, and simple fans of the plant, the site determined that at least one of the main reasons for why the pre-roll has been seen in such a negative light is due to the unknowable nature of its contents.
People who have grown accustomed to rolling their own joints may not prefer a product that already comes pre-packed. At the same time, newer marijuana users or those looking for a new product may take interest in pre-rolls.
The reality is that there are probably some businesses out there that cut corners and produce low-quality pre-rolls, but then again, every industry has some bad eggs.
Just as there are businesses that don’t care too much about producing poor quality pre-rolls, there are also those that invest plenty of resources in making high quality product.
Lowell Smokes is one example of high-quality pre-rolls. Instead of containing just dried stems and some leaves, a pack of Lowell Smokes makes use of six grams of flower. Lowell Smokes are free from trim and shake. They contain only the flowers that marijuana fans are after.
The flowers used in Lowell Smokes are grown by local farmers that and don’t contain any additives.
Lowell Herb Co is now the No. 1 preroll brand in California since it’s creation in 2017. It has connected with the likes of celebrities including Miguel, Miley Cryus, Chelsea Handler, and Emma Stone. Lowell rose to popularity after the creation of its “weed flower crown” that was made for Coachella festival goers. Since then, the company’s commitment to growing and fostering organic cannabis has continued to stand out.
