How to Choose a Legal THC Pre-Roll

Delta THC pre-rolls are not only packed and ready to light right out of the jar, they can also be shipped directly to your house! But with all the different cannabis brands and types of legal THC pre-rolls out there, you probably have a few questions. Here’s a quick breakdown so you can choose the right hemp pre-rolls for your smoking style: 

What is a pre-rolled joint?

As the name suggests, pre-rolled joints, also referred to as pre-rolls, are cannabis cigarettes that are ready to smoke right out of the jar. Pre-rolls from dispensaries often get a bad reputation because farms make them with flower that’s almost too old to sell or even with shake (small pieces of flower at the bottom of the jar) that’s unsellable otherwise. This makes them much lower quality than purchasing dry herb on its own, but this isn’t always the case. There are many great pre-roll brands out there too. However, this is not a problem with Delta-8 pre-rolls or other legal THC dry herb pre-rolls since the flower itself is not what gives the pre-roll potency. The flower used is non-psychoactive hemp flower that will not get you high on its own. This hemp flower is dipped in potent Delta THC distillate, which produces euphoric effects. This means the flower and legal THC pre-roll will have consistent potency.

Choose a type of hemp-derived THC

With modern techniques, there are many different types of hemp-derived THC that’s legal to purchase online. Some of the most popular are Delta-8, THC-A, HHC, and Delta-10. THC-P and THC-O are the strongest legal THC on the market, being even more potent than normal THC. Delta-10 and Delta-8 are the least potent. But potency isn’t all that matters, Delta-8 is favored for its mild effects and has almost no side effects normally associated with smoking like anxiety and paranoia. Delta-8’s effects are likened to an indica strain, while Delta-10 is more like a sativa strain. There are also Delta THC blends, which produce more wholesome effects. Do some research and try a few types of hemp-derived THC to see what you prefer.

Pick a type of pre-roll

Not all pre-rolls are the same. They come in various sizes, but the most common are King-size or shorties, also called mini pre-rolls or minis. King-size pre-rolls are perfect for passing around a group, bringing to parties, or for longer smoke sessions. These pre-rolled joints contain around 1 gram to 1.5 grams of dried herb and use King-size rolling paper. Mini pre-rolls are preferred for solo smoke sessions or for times when you want to just take a few puffs like before class. Shorties often come in packs and contain roughly 0.2 grams to 0.5 grams of dry herb. They’re also good if you want to be discreet or have a pre-roll that’s easy to carry around. The final type of pre-roll are blunts, which normally use a tobacco leaf wrapper instead of rolling paper, however nowadays there are many tobacco-free options. Delta THC pre-rolled blunts are ready to smoke right out of the package and are always tobacco-free. Smoking a blunt is an entirely different experience than smoking a joint. They are more slow-burning and last a lot longer than a pre-rolled joint since their size allows them to hold more flower.

Infused or regular?

If you’re a seasoned smoker, you may want to try something with an extra boost of potency. Try an infused pre-rolled joint! These extra-strength pre-rolls can be marketed as liquid diamonds, infused, or made with moon rocks, among other names. In addition to the legal THC-soaked dry herb used to pack the pre-roll, these joints are also rolled in additional extracts or concentrates to give each hit a little kick. This is usually another legal THC distillate or isolate such as Delta-8 or THC-A. In marijuana joints, these are often kief, wax, hash, or shatter. If you’re new to smoking or new to legal THC products, try a regular pre-roll first and work your way up to an infused pre-roll.

Be sure it’s a reputable brand

Since Delta THC is not regulated like marijuana products sold in dispensaries, it’s extra important to only purchase Delta-8 pre-rolls and other products from reputable brands. This doesn’t just mean you should accept the most popular and well-known brands are the best. Be sure to do your own research and see if the brand is transparent with consumers. Where is their headquarters and where are their products made? Most importantly, check their website to see if all of their Delta THC products have been lab tested by third party researchers and if the results are available to view online. These lab tests ensure that the product is safe and high quality with accurate labeling of cannabinoids and is free of heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides, and other contaminants. We made this easy to do on the EF420 website. Just go to the products page and click on the certificate of analysis to view the results of each product’s lab test.

How to make your own pre-rolls

Because of the work that goes into rolling each and every pre-roll, pre-rolled joints or blunts are always more expensive than purchasing dry herb and making your own joints at home. There are several reasons smokers prefer pre-rolls over rolling their own joints and blunts despite the cost. Maybe you don’t have great dexterity or are still learning how to roll joints, but you may also simply want pre-rolls for their convenience since you can light up at a moment’s notice without having to worry about carrying rolling papers and filters. Whatever the case may be, you can always roll your own pre-rolls at home in bulk. Here’s how:

  1. Purchase legal THC flower online and have it shipped to your house. If rolling in bulk, you’ll also want to get a rolling machine or pre-rolled cones with the tip installed.
  2. Grind up your Delta-8 flower until it’s fluffy and has an even consistency.
  3. Working over a rolling tray, fill each pre-rolled cone, and be sure to tamp down the flower as you go for a smoother smoke. Twist the end of each pre-roll so nothing spills out during transport.
  4. Your pre-rolled joints can last a few weeks if kept left out or up to a year if stored in the right conditions in an air-tight container, so it’s possible to make several pre-rolls in bulk to use as you please. For transporting joints in your bag or pocket, we recommend using a doob tube to keep them from being crushed.
