What are CBD Pre-Rolls?
Hemp CBD pre-rolls are conveniently rolled joints that contain dried hemp plant material. When looking for the best CBD joints, there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure you get the best quality for your money.
Many consumers have been looking for products made with hemp grown in the U.S. While this isn’t necessarily a mark of quality (Northern Europe has been cultivating great hemp non-stop for generations), it is a great way to support the American economy. More important is how the hemp is cultivated, and organic methods that avoid chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides are preferred.
You’ll also want to know how much material is in each pre-roll joint – this is often listed as a weight in fractions of a gram. Most pre-rolled joints are between 0.5 and 1 gram.
Finally, it helps to know the quality of the material in the pre-roll. Hemp quality can vary significantly by harvest, and some companies specifically use lower quality material (e.g. leaves instead of flowers) in pre-rolls.
Let’s look at some of the best CBD pre-rolls available on the market to see which rise to the top.
American Shaman CBD Pre Rolls
American Shaman offers an impressively large line of CBD products: including CBD gummies, tinctures, topicals, tea, and hemp pre-rolls.
These CBD joints are made from hemp grown in the U.S. American Shaman has selected the popular Cherry Wine high-CBD hemp strain in their pre-rolls. Each CBD joint contains one gram of full-spectrum hemp flower in unbleached rolling paper.
Priced at $14.99 per joint, American Shaman hemp CBD pre-rolls are among the most expensive on this list. However, they are backed by a 30 to 45-day money-back guarantee (depending on where you purchase it) to give consumers some peace of mind.
Plain Jane CBD Pre Rolls
Grown on over 15 Southern Oregon farms, Plain Jane specializes in top quality hemp flowers and uses organic methods outdoors, indoors and in greenhouses.
Plain Jane processes the hemp in their pre-rolls with a proprietary method to remove the “hemp” smell, for a more discreet scent when using these products in public. Customers have a choice between rice paper or unbleached hemp paper, and each pre-roll has a cigarette style filter making them mimic cigarettes in look and feel.
Each hemp joint weighs 0.9 grams, but it is unclear whether that includes the filter. Unlike other brands, Plain Jane lists the amount of CBD in each pre-roll (72 mg).
Plain Jane CBD Pre-rolls are by far the lowest priced on our list at just $2.99 for 2 hemp joints, they are also available in 20 count packs. If you prefer hemp in traditional CBD pre-rolled joints, Plain Jane offers those as well.
Game Up Nutrition CBD Pre Rolls:
Aimed at the active and athletic crowd, Game Up Nutrition promotes the fact that it uses hemp flower only – and not lower grade material like leaves.
These hemp pre-rolls are available in four strains: Special Sauce, Hawaiian Haze, Sour Space Candy, and Elektra. Each organically grown strain has its own scent and flavor profile.
The brand’s page doesn’t mention how much CBD per mg, but it does list the percentage of CBD and THC for each strain. Each pre-rolled joint contains 0.75 grams of hemp flower rolled in vegan-friendly, RAW unbleached hemp paper.
At $10.99 per pre-roll, you’ll be paying a bit extra for quality, but it is worth it for one of the best CBD pre-rolls available.
Blue Ridge Blue J’s Hemp CBD Pre Rolls:
This North Carolina company offers eight different high CBD hemp strains in their hemp CBD pre-rolls, including popular high-CBD hemp strains like Elektra and Sour Space Candy. However, I had a hard time learning more about where and how their hemp was grown, even after some digging on the brand’s website.
Each half-gram hemp joint is rolled in hemp paper. There are five CBD pre-roll joints packaged in a portable tin for $29.95 – about $6 per joint. Free shipping and a 30-day money-back guarantee make trying Blue Ridge Blue J’s a worry-free experience.
Dr. Ganja CBD Pre Rolls:
Dr. Ganja offers a range of CBD products, from tinctures, edibles, and hemp flower buds, to CBD pre-rolls. The company markets its hemp as US-grown, but I couldn’t find details about where.
Their CBD pre-roll blunts contain one gram of Juicy Fruit hemp flower wrapped in a naturally flavored blunt wrap (blunts are traditionally rolled in tobacco paper). Each CBD pre-roll retails for $12.
My Final Verdict
From our list of the best CBD pre-rolls on the market – Game Up Nutrition CBD Pre-rolls impressed me the most. Game Up Nutrition falls in the middle for price and size, making high-quality CBD accessible for most consumers. The variety of hemp strains available allows the consumer to tailor the experience to their preference. However, it was the published lab results showing the exact cannabinoid content that pushed Game Up Nutrition over the edge.
