The first time I wrote about pre-rolled joints, I labeled them the hot dogs of the cannabis industry: “Cheap to make, easy to consume and extremely convenient – but do you really want to know what’s inside?” Most of the time, you don’t.
There’s a reason dispensaries will sell you pre-rolled joints for a penny on your first visit: because they’re full of crap. Even some of my favorite pot shops that are known for selling Denver’s best flower routinely pack their pre-rolls with leafy trim or powderized plant material, both of which are hard on the throat. A few will be honest about what’s inside and charge only $9 or $11. For the most part, though, they’re $10 sticks of shit. Buy a dispensary’s pre-roll at your own risk.
