Everything You Need to Know About CBD Pre-Rolls

October 12, 2020

CBD pre-rolls, also known as hemp pre-rolls, are getting more and more popular. These “joints” use hemp instead of cannabis, which means that they won’t get you “high” -- instead, CBD pre-rolls are used for relaxation and for health benefits. 

Interested in using CBD pre-rolls yourself? Confused about what they are and what they do? Here’s our 101 guide to CBD pre-rolls!

What are CBD pre-rolls?

CBD pre-rolls are much like cannabis joints, except they’re made from hemp instead of cannabis. This means they’re not intoxicating. 

This is because of something called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC, like CBD, is a cannabinoid. This means they are two of the many chemicals found in hemp and cannabis plants. THC can make you feel “high” or intoxicated, but CBD cannot. 

Hemp and cannabis are actually the same species of plant. However, the law defines them as two separate things: hemp contains 0.3 percent THC or less, and cannabis contains over 0.3 percent THC.

Because of the THC content, hemp won't get you high

Another key difference between hemp and cannabis is legality. While cannabis is only legal in certain states, hemp is legal throughout the United States. This means that CBD pre-rolls are legal all over the country. 

What exactly is CBD? 

As the name suggests, CBD joints are high in cannabidiol (CBD), a cannabinoid found in both hemp and cannabis. CBD is said to have multiple health benefits. 

CBD and other cannabinoids work by affecting your endocannabinoid system. Found in all mammals, the endocannabinoid system consists of receptors that receive “messages” and then affect various parts of the body. Even when you’re not using CBD or any other cannabinoids, your endocannabinoid system is functioning. 

What’s the purpose of the endocannabinoid system? Essentially, it works to keep your body healthy, functioning, and balanced. It affects various parts of your body, including your:

  • brain
  • digestive system
  • cardiovascular system
  • skin
  • reproductive organs

When you ingest CBD and other cannabinoids, it influences your receptors to affect your body in different ways. Different cannabinoids have different effects on your body; for example, while THC stimulates your appetite, CBD does not. 

Why do people use CBD pre-rolls? 

Most people who smoke cannabis joints do so in order to get high. So if CBD joints don’t get you high, what’s the point in using it? 

Because they’re high in CBD, people use them for their health benefits. Smoking a CBD joint is an easy, effective, quick way to deliver CBD into your system.

People use CBD joints for: 

  • Pain management
  • Anxiety relief
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Improving sleep
  • Soothing nausea and vomiting
  • Stress relief

There is no guarantee that CBD will cure or treat any ailment, but if you struggle with any of the above issues, it’s worth trying. It’s a good idea to speak to your doctor before you use CBD for health reasons.

People also smoke CBD joints for pure enjoyment, relaxation, and socializing. Many people enjoy the unique flavors and fragrances of hemp strains, much like a wine connoisseur might enjoy sampling different kinds of wine.

How do I use a CBD pre-roll? 

CBD pre-rolls are smoked in the same way you’d smoke a cannabis joint. This act of smoking can be relaxing in itself, especially if you’re trying to quit cigarettes but enjoy the motion of inhaling smoke. What’s more is that CBD pre-rolls don’t contain harmful nicotine - it’s a win-win!

Because CBD pre-rolls don’t get you high, you can use them any time of the day. With that said, if you’re using them for better sleep, you can use them fifteen to thirty minutes before you turn in for the night. If you’re using CBD pre-rolls to help with pain and inflammation, simply smoke one when the pain gets particularly bad. 

The effects of CBD joints set in nearly immediately after you smoke it, although it might take fifteen to thirty minutes before you fully feel it.

How do I choose which CBD pre-roll to buy?

When it comes to choosing a CBD pre-roll, you’re spoiled for choice. So, how do you tell which CBD joint you should buy?

In order to ensure that you’re getting a high-quality CBD pre-roll, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Has it been third-party tested? Being tested by an independent lab verifies the contents to help ensure that it’s really top-quality. You can find our lab reports here
  • Where does the hemp come from? We’re involved in the breeding process ourselves and handpick unique hemp strains for their powerful and positive effects. Our hemp is all US-grown and free from harmful herbicides and pesticides. 
  • Is the company I’m buying from reputable? Does their website offer information about their products? What are the reviews like, and what are people saying about this company on social media?

Much like different strains of cannabis affect people differently, different strains of hemp will affect people differently. Hemp growers purposefully breed cultivars with the intention of producing different effects. A hemp cultivar that makes your friend feel alert and energetic might make you feel sleepy and relaxed. 

The effect it has on you depends on the cannabinoids and terpenes that are found in the hemp flower. The effect also depends on your individual biology, metabolism, and weight.

We offer three different CBD pre-rolls, each with their own unique cultivar:

  • Vibes, which is designed to promote relaxation
  • Boost, which is intended to lift your mood and help you feel ready to tackle the day ahead
  • Balance, which promotes alertness while keeping you calm

If you’re not sure which CBD joint to choose, you can opt for our variety pack which includes all three cultivars. This allows you to experiment with all three.
