CBD Hemp Pre Roll FAQ

What is a CBD pre-roll?

A CBD pre-roll is another name for a hemp joint. This type of product is pre-filled with ground-up CBD hemp flower. So, when you purchase one or a pack and they arrive at your door, you can open the box and begin enjoying it right away. There’s no work or effort involved. All you’ll need is a lighter to light up and you’re good to go.

The alternative to buying a hemp pre-roll is to buy CBD flower nugs, some rolling paper, and filters. These are the basic components you’ll need to make your own CBD hemp joint. We’re not saying this is a bad option, but it does take more time and some level of finesse to hand-roll a joint.

So, when it comes to pre-rolled joints vs hand-rolled joints, one option isn’t necessarily better or worse than the other. Making the choice between one over the other usually comes down to preference and convenience.

Can CBD pre-rolls get you high?

CBD pre-rolls made with hemp flower don’t have enough THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid, to cause a “head high.” There are two main reasons for this. First, by nature, the hemp plant doesn’t produce much THC. Alternatively, the hemp plant is genetically designed to yield high levels of CBD.

Secondly, the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the Farm Bill states that hemp-derived products, like a CBD pre-roll, cannot have more than 0.3% THC by dry weight.

In fact, in the states where hemp farming is legal, the individual state Departments of Agriculture test the levels of THC in all hemp crops. If a farmer’s crop exceeds 0.3% THC, the crops must be discarded. Therefore, sourcing your CBD hemp products from a state with a Hemp Farming Program in place is a smart way to go.

How much CBD is in a pre-roll?

The percentage of CBD in a pre-roll depends on the hemp flower strain used. To find out how much CBD is in a pre-roll, look for a lab report called the “Cannabinoid Analysis.” It is usually posted online next to the strain you are viewing or by the product description. This lab test will tell you the percentage of CBD and will also tell you the percentages of the other cannabinoids like CBG, CBC, CBN, and THC.

How do you preserve a rolled joint?

So, you’re not quite ready to smoke your joint or you have half leftover. To keep it fresh, place it in a joint tube if you have one. Or find a small glass jar of glass Tupperware with an airtight lid. Store your hemp flower joint in there and put it in a dry, dark place. Keeping it under the sunlight or in a warm, hot area of the house can degrade the freshness and potency of the hemp flower.

Should you buy pre-rolled joints?

When you feel confident in a CBD company and the hemp pre-rolls they make, then buying a pre-rolled joint is a wonderful idea. Of course, you have to like smoking, or be willing to give smoking a try. That’s really the only necessity.

Besides that, pre-rolled CBD joints are one of the quickest ways to get the benefits of CBD into your system. They’re also very convenient and easy to take when you’re on the go. There are a lot more perks of pre-rolls, and we’ll get into those specifics a bit later in the article.

Is it bad to pre-roll joints?

This is a common question because people worry whether pre-rolls will go stale or lose their freshness. And they wonder if rolling a bunch in advance or buying them in bulk is a smart idea.

Let us pretend for a minute you want to buy a 5 pack of pre-rolled hemp joints. Maybe you only plan on smoking one or two a week. So, this pack will likely last a little over two weeks.

If you store them properly, by keeping them in a cool, dry, dark place they will be ok. Also, if you have a joint tube or a mason jar to put them in, this could help them maintain their freshness even longer.

Is it cheaper to roll your own joints?

To be honest, the cost is not a whole lot different when you compare the price of pre-rolls to individual grams of hemp flower. When making your own, there is a small cost to buy your cones, rolling papers, and filters.

Plus, you have to factor in the time you spend to roll them. When you add those together, the cost is fairly even or slightly less for CBD pre-rolled joints.

What are the benefits of hemp flower pre-rolls?

The first major benefit of smoking hemp flower pre-rolls is the fast onset of effects. It only takes a few minutes after taking a puff or two to feel something. The effects vary depending on the genetics of the strain, as well as its cannabinoid and terpene profile.

Because CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system (ECS) the benefits of smoking CBD flower can be many. The ECS helps your body maintain homeostasis or balance. In other words, this system keeps everything in check to make sure there’s harmony between your mind and body.

As many of you may know, it’s not easy to keep this balance. You may have turned towards a whole foods diet, a meditation practice, or keeping a gratitude journal to improve your well-being. Another option is adding CBD into your day. In recent years, this has been one of the most popular ways to upgrade a health protocol.

The science now proves how CBD has benefits. And the anecdotal evidence from millions of people around the world speaks to its numerous benefits as well.

Who might enjoy hemp joints?

Those who love smoking high THC cannabis strains or regular tobacco cigarettes may naturally gravitate to hemp joints. Also, anyone who wants a fast-acting supply of CBD and isn’t super talented in hand-rolling joints may love the idea of buying pre-rolls.

You might enjoy CBD hemp pre-rolls if:

  • You prefer smoking compared to other methods of consumption.

  • You like the idea of skipping the step of rolling a joint yourself, especially if you have pain in your fingers, hands, or wrists.

  • You do not require specific doses of CBD and prefer to stop smoking when you reach your desired results.

  • You want a convenient way to consume CBD throughout the day for routine relief.

What is the best pre-roll?

If you want to find the best pre-roll, the first step is to identify the strains that you like. People pick and choose various CBD hemp strains based on appearance, flavor profile, potency, and potential effects.

Once you have a few to a half dozen strains in mind, the next important factor is finding a company that fills its pre-rolled joints with organic CBD nugs. The organic nature of the hemp flower is critical. An organic hemp flower earned its status as ‘organic’ because it was grown without GMOs, pesticides, or harmful chemicals.

When smoking pre-rolled hemp flower, the last thing you want is for chemicals to be entering your lungs and your bloodstream. Safety and your health come first and are especially important.

Next, you may have noticed our use of the word nug. This is another name for a CBD flower bud. When shopping for the best pre-roll, make sure the product includes cured, hand-trimmed CBD nugs, rather than trim or shake.

That is because the potency and flavors of these by-products (trim and shake) do not come close to a freshly ground up CBD nug to yield the best high CBD pre-rolls.

Will I Fail a Drug Test After Smoking CBD?

Ok, here is the deal. Labs that perform drug screenings do not actually test for CBD since it is non-intoxicating. So, to set the record straight, you cannot fail a drug test because of CBD.

However, a drug test does look for traces of THC in your urine. THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the psychoactive cannabinoid in the cannabis plant and a cousin of CBD.

There are small traces of THC in full-spectrum CBD products. CBD isolates and broad-spectrum products, on the other hand, are THC-free. At least they should be.

Sadly, even when you consume a THC-free product it can result in a false-positive because not all drug tests are 100% accurate. The test could confuse CBD for THC, which can cause an inaccurate reading.

On top of that, several factors can influence the outcome of your drug test result. These include the source of your CBD, the amount you consume, how long you consume it for, your individual body chemistry, and more.

Also, there is a concern over whether the label on your product is accurate. It could say 0% THC, but without evidence, such as a Certificate of Analysis (COA) from a third-party lab, you will not know for certain.

Until the FDA starts to regulate the marketing of CBD products, not every company is going to act in good faith. This is why you only want to buy from a trusted brand with a strong reputation. One that tests its products for potency and safety.
