The truth about pre rolls:
It can be tricky because when it comes to pre-rolls, you really can’t see what you’re buying. Pre rolls have often been condemned as filled with low-quality products and, while this is not consistently true , it is important to be selective. Lots also come down to personal preference, but it’s good to keep certain things in mind. Focus on dispensaries that are transparent about where their cannabis is being grown. Domestic is usually best, with Ontario having the highest number of growing facilities in Canada.
How are pre-rolls made?
Pre rolls are either made of ‘shake’ or trim, which is basically the leftovers from dried flower trimmings. This is normally the more affordable option. While most people believe that shake is just lower quality, that isn’t necessarily true. Shake is essentially marijuana that has been cut up into smaller pieces, ideal for rolling joints. The other option is, ground-up whole buds, which offer higher potency and flavour. This is typically the more expensive option.
What else is important about pre-rolls?
It’s important that pre rolls are packed tightly enough in order to burn evenly. It cannot be too dry or too moist. Too dry causes a harsh experience, while too moist leads to mould and bacteria. The ideal moisture factor is between 10-12%.
The rest comes down to personal preference with your strain of choice, Indica, Sativa, or hybrid. Most pre rolls are sold individually or in packs ranging from 3-10. You can choose from 0.35g to a gram (cannot exceed a gram by law in Canada) , catering to your tolerance.
Reading a pre-roll label:
At Montrose Cannabis in Pickering, we really value transparency! It is helpful to know how to read a pre roll label. Look at the strain type. Sativa is known for its ‘head high’ which increases creativity and focus. Indica is known for its ‘body high’ which helps with sleep and relaxation. Hybrid strains offer a balance between the two. The THC and CBD content will be listed in mg/g on the package. You can calculate the THC percentage (if not already listed) by dividing the THC content by grams. There are 1000mg/g. For example, a 0.5g pre roll with a THC content of 75mg/g would be calculated as 75/500 = 0.15 x100 = 15%.THC is primarily responsible for the psychoactive and intoxicating effects of marijuana.CBD has no intoxicating effects, it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system encouraging the release of our own natural endocannabinoids. For example, selecting a product with similar levels of THC and CBD may help curb unwanted effects of anxiety or paranoia.
