What Should I Bring On My First Boston Cannabis Dispensary Trip?August 28, 2023
It’s finally time—you’ve thought about going to a cannabis dispensary. Now, you have committed to the trip and picked your location. What comes next? If...
There are multiple ways of enjoying cannabis, and each method is tailored to consumer preferences or health concerns. Marijuana can be smoked, vaped, consumed as an edible, or administered via the topical delivery method (oils absorbed through the skin). One common method of consuming cannabis is by smoking pre rolled cones. Here is a close look at what these are.
Pre rolled cones are, as the name implies, cannabis papers that have already been rolled for you. The base of a pre roll, which is called a “trim,” consists of a mixture of buds and bits of leaf from the cannabis plant. The trim may be rolled into a cone or another shape according to your preference. According to cannabis industry news website Ganjapreneur, it is estimated that approximately 492.8 million pre rolls were sold in 2018 across the United States and Canada in 2018 (which translates to a sales volume of $985 million, assuming the average wholesale price of a pre roll is $2).
Pre rolled cones are excellent for smoking weed precisely because they have already been rolled (typically by a machine). If you don’t have any experience with hand-rolling (or have joint pain in your hands), pre rolled cones are a great way to enjoy cannabis. You can also purchase both cones and traditional sheets in order to gain a more complete marijuana experience. Cones are also relatively small, which means they are easily transportable.
There are three notable benefits of pre rolled cones. Let’s analyze each of these advantages.
Pre rolled cones are great for beginners because they are conveniently ready for consumption. All you need to do is grind up the flower and fill the cone. It’s as simple as that. There is no need to understand how to use any complex smoking accessories.
Cones are also convenient because you can save time by using them. Each pre-roll takes only a few minutes to fill, whereas manually rolling joints could take significantly longer.
In addition to their convenient nature, pre rolled cones come in many different sizes. Therefore, you have several options to choose from. If you are wondering whether a specific size is available, you can ask a cannabis expert at a local dispensary.
As convenient as cones may be, they also have their drawbacks. Here are two noteworthy downsides to pre rolled cones.
The unfortunate reality is that cones are notoriously expensive. This is because they are manufactured and thus save you the hassle of preparing them. According to cannabis marketing technology company Leafbuyer, “top shelf shake” pre-rolls typically cost between $7 and $10 each (compared to less than $5 for a non-rolled joint), while those with brand names can cost up to $50 each. If you truly prefer not to hand-roll cannabis joints, then pre rolled cones are your best option.
Another major disadvantage of cones is the fact that they can be easily crushed (if they are out of their packaging) because of their shape. Therefore, they should be handled with extreme care. Other types of pre-rolls are flat and packaged identically.
These are the major benefits and disadvantages of pre rolled cones compared to rolling papers. If you are new to smoking marijuana, it may be a good idea to try both pre-rolls and other formats to determine which method you prefer the most. Examples of pre rolled cones that were popular in 2020 include RAW, JWare, and Juicy Jay’s pre-rolls.
