If you’re new to the world of cannabis, you’re in for a treat. But first, you must become familiar with your options, including marijuana pre-rolls.
Pre-rolls are part of the standard product offerings in licensed medical marijuana dispensaries. These are, as the name implies, marijuana flowers, already rolled and ready to use when you bring them home.
This feature makes it easy to smoke your weed without knowing how to cut, measure, and roll a joint yourself. But in addition to the simplicity, there are other benefits. Before you choose a pre-roll for your next marijuana step, read on to learn the benefits and drawbacks of this cannabis delivery method.
1. There Are Various Types of Pre-Rolls
Cannabis pre-rolls are already prepared for you out of cannabis, rolling paper, and a filter on the end for your mouth. Some pre-rolls are infused with cannabis products to boost potency.
They’re the ideal starter joint for new users and work well if you’re on the go and want to smoke. You don’t need any other equipment or time to put anything together. Just light your roll, and inhale.
But the important thing to remember as you shop for marijuana pre-rolls is that they each have different strains. Look for the kind that gives you the specific results you want, choosing from:
- Indica calms you, reduces pain, and keeps you grounded; it’s perfect if you don’t mind being sleepy and a bit lazy.
- Sativa boosts your energy, enhances creativity, and reduces depression and anxiety. It’s also a popular choice for pain relief and appetite control.
- Hybrid provides a unique mix of the two strains, and the results will vary depending on the mixture’s potency.

2. You Have Pre-Rolled Purchase Options
Another reason pre-rolled joints are popular with new users is that they can be purchased in singles or packs. This works well if you want to try a strain and aren’t sure if you’ll like it or are testing out the smoking method.
Rather than investing a lot into a stash only to find your body doesn’t like it, you can pay for one pre-roll. Try it out, then buy more if you enjoy the results. It’s a great way to experiment with different flower strains.
One thing to note is that, depending on the state, your MMJ license might not automatically cover pre-rolled cannabis. Your physician must recommend this when they submit your forms. Otherwise, you won’t be able to buy pre-rolls or loose flower.
3. Pre-Rolled Cannabis Comes With Advantages
Whether you’re a pro at rolling joints or you’re new to the game, there are plenty of benefits to buying pre-rolled.
For one thing, rolling your own joints at home can be messy. In the process, you lose a little bit of your weed. This doesn’t seem like much at first, but it adds up. Pre-rolls give you all the marijuana with none of the mess.
These products are portable. They’re as easy to carry as a pack of cigarettes, and if you have an MMJ card or are allowed to transport weed by state laws, it makes it a breeze to smoke.
Another advantage to pre-rolls is that the cannabis is always high-quality yet affordable. They’re rolled by experts who know what they’re doing, so your joint has exactly the right amount of weed in it, and it’s always fresh when you buy it.
4. But There Are Some Downsides, Too
Of course, if pre-rolled marijuana were perfect, everyone would want it. But there are a few disadvantages to this cannabis delivery method.
All weed needs to be stored properly to stay fresh. However, pre-rolled joints require extra careful storage in airtight containers. They’ll dry out quickly if you allow them too much exposure to air.
Some pre-rolls come in a tube that keeps them safe. You can also use a sealed bag or temperature-controlled storage container.
Pre-rolled marijuana is an easy and affordable option with plenty of advantages. You don’t have to fight the mess and take the time to roll your joints. You can take them with you anywhere you go (as long as you’re following state and federal laws).
Talk to the staff at your nearest licensed dispensary if you’re on the fence about pre-rolled joints. They’ll find out your goals and suggest a strain, and you can try it out without digging too deeply into your wallet!
