Welcome to the wonderful world of pre-rolls! If it's your first time smoking weed, you might have a few questions - for which, check out our beginner's guide on getting high for the first time. If this is your first experience with smoking a Weedsy, or any pre-roll for that matter, you're on the right article! What is a pre-roll? How is it different from a joint or a bong? Is smoking a pre-roll like smoking the others? What will I taste or feel?
Heck, even if you're a seasoned smoker, you might not be familiar with pre-rolls. Never fear! That's why we created this handy guide. Read on to learn everything you need to know.
What Is a Pre-Roll?
Before we get to how to smoke a pre-roll, we want to take a minute to talk about exactly what they are. Pre-rolls are, well, pre-rolled joints. You may be a professional joint roller or you may have never smoked one in your life. Either way, our cute little joints are already tucked in nice and tidy, so you can get down to what's important: getting high.
Every pre-roll is precisely measured at 0.4 grams of high-quality cannabis. We then add the highest potency cannabis distillate and smother it all with more kief than you can imagine. So, whether it's your first time smoking weed or you've never wondered how to smoke a pre-roll, these small-yet-might pre-rolls will get you to that higher level.
How Are They Different from Bongs, Blunts, and Joints?
We're so glad you asked. Pre-rolls are very similar to joints except they're precisely measured, and, well, pre-rolled. They're also smaller, making them a perfect one-hit, never-save-it-or-share-it-option.
A blunt is cannabis wrapped in a cigar or blunt wrap. These wraps are typically infused with tobacco, which adds an additional buzz to your high.
Bongs are much larger filtration devices. Usually, you place your herb of choice in a small bowl and light it. Smoke fills a chamber, often with water in it. Then you inhale the smoke through a smaller chamber. (Trust us, learning how to smoke a pre-roll is a lot less of a hassle.)
While bongs are traditional and have their place, they're not usually easy to travel with. If they're made of glass, they're also prone to breaking. Plus, there's that everyone-puts-their-mouth-on-the-same-opening thing. Gross! Give us a pre-roll any day.
How To Smoke a Pre-Roll?
Alright, we've gotten to the good part: it's your first time smoking weed from a pre-roll. How do you do it?
Get started with a few easy steps:
- Choose your preferred pre-roll flavor (we love Strawberry).
- "Roast" or cut off the tip of your pre-roll to ensure an even burn.
- Place the filtered end in your mouth. Light the other end and take a long, gentle inhale.
- When learning how to smoke a pre-roll for the first time, you may cough. That's normal; try supping water between hits to soothe your throat.
- Make sure to end with a deep gulp of air to get the smoke down into your lungs for maximum THC impact.
- Slowly exhale and repeat.
