Especially when it comes to cannabis, it’s best to be well-informed so you don’t get unwanted surprises and so you can start mastering the arts of enjoying cannabis and its potential benefits like an expert.

For some cannabis veterans, the very idea of writing an article about how to smoke a joint may even seem unnecessary. Nonetheless, we know that more and more people are leaning toward trying cannabis for the first time and that a bit of help in this regard really does come in handy. So, if you want to learn how to smoke a CBD pre-roll like an expert, keep reading, and you will find the essential guide and everything you need to know to smoke your CBD pre-roll like a sensei. First of all, let’s start by clarifying some basic concepts.

What is a CBD pre-roll?

Short answer, a CBD pre-roll is one of the most practical and convenient ways to enjoy your CBD. But we know that although the name suggests it very clearly, some people may still need clarification about what exactly a pre-roll is. A CBD pre-roll is a pre-rolled joint with CBD flower made in order to make things easier for some people when it comes to smoking their CBD. CBD pre-rolls may also be ideal for those who don´t know how to roll yet or want to avoid having to roll their CBD joints themselves.

CBD flowers are the buds that sprout from the hemp plant and that carry high concentrations of CBD or Cannabidiol. This type of cannabis bud is especially ideal for those who want to enjoy the benefits of CBD without having to experience the psychoactive effects of Delta-9 THC, the predominant cannabinoid in the type of cannabis that many of us know as marijuana.

CBD pre-rolls are one of the CBD products that are becoming increasingly popular thanks to the fact that more and more people are learning about the potential benefits that CBD could bring to health. CBD pre-rolls are also an excellent option for those enthusiastic users who are just getting to know everything related to cannabis and are not yet experts in the whole process of rolling a joint.

How to light a pre-rolled joint?

Lighting a joint can be pretty similar to lighting a regular cigarette. Still, some details are important to consider when lighting a CBD pre-roll joint to do it properly without burning yourself, causing an uneven burn, or experiencing uncomfortable smoking. You can light the pre-roll with a lighter or a match in case you don’t have a lighter. After having your pre-roll and your lighter or match in hand, the first and most important advice is to be patient since it is very likely that your CBD pre-roll will not light all at once. In this sense, a CBD pre-roll is similar to cigars because it can take a bit longer to light than a regular cigarette. You can see how long it usually takes for cigar smokers to light up.

Another helpful tip to ensure an even burn on your pre-roll is to rotate it slowly while applying the flame to the end you are trying to light before taking it to your mouth. The flame doesn’t need to touch the joint; the heat of the fire can ignite your pre-roll even if you are a little way from it. Keep your fingertips away from the flame, so you don’t have to worry about getting burned. 

Which side of a pre-rolled joint do you light?

Most CBD pre-rolls available for sale usually come pre-rolled with a filter on one of the ends, which is the one that you place in your mouth when you puff your pre-roll. The side of the joint that you must turn on is the opposite side of where the filter is. Some users like to roll the tip of the joint to make it more pointy, creating a paper overlap that allows for a slower, more even burn. Some people like to remove this excess paper, but the truth is that it is optional to do so.

How to smoke a pre-rolled CBD joint

Once you’ve lit your CBD pre-roll, it’s time to start smoking it. Although smoking a pre-roll is not rocket science, enthusiastic users may still have questions about how to smoke a pre-roll properly. Furthermore, smoking a CBD pre-roll is undoubtedly an art that can be mastered more and more with time and practice. Most expert users recommend starting your CBD pre-roll with small puffs rather than inhaling giant puffs of smoke. This way, you prepare your lungs to receive larger amounts of smoke and avoid damaging your lungs and causing an uneven burn to your joints.

Another recommended and vital factor to remember when smoking your CBD pre-roll is not to inhale the joint while lighting it. This is another feature that sets CBD pre-rolls apart from regular tobacco cigarettes. This is important because inhaling while lighting the pre-roll makes it harder to see what’s happening at the joint’s tip and can cause a fast and uneven burn that can ruin the pre-roll. Some experts also recommend drawing the smoke into your mouth first when smoking your CBD pre-roll before inhaling it into your lungs and using the diaphragm on both inhalation and exhalation.

Another helpful tip when smoking your CBD pre-rolls is not to hold the smoke in your lungs for too long. Some users may believe that retaining the smoke as long as possible causes increased effects. But contrary to this belief, existing data show that the lungs absorb CBD within the first few seconds and that holding the smoke in for too long can actually be harmful to your lungs. Ideally, just take deep puffs that fill your lungs with CBD smoke and exhale 1 to 3 seconds after inhaling. With that time, it is more than enough for your lungs to absorb the CBD and start enjoying the benefits of this cannabinoid.

How to put out a CBD Pre-Roll

Once you’ve finished smoking your CBD pre-roll, the right thing to do is either dispose of the remnants in an ashtray or make sure you completely extinguish the glowing embers burning inside the joint so that once it’s smothered and cool, you can throw it away.

You can also try to have a doob tube, snap-top test tube, or whatever type of container you prefer so that, in case you don’t smoke your CBD pre-roll entirely in one session (which is very common), you can save what you have left for later in a practical, discreet, and odorless way. Although some users may smoke the entire CBD pre-roll at once, many others tend to smoke a pre-roll in 2-3 sessions, so it can be very convenient to have a container on hand to store the leftovers of your CBD pre-roll in case you don’t smoke it completely.

Does smoking a CBD pre-roll get you high?

This is a common question among people who are just getting close to everything related to cannabis, hemp, cannabis, and cannabinoids in general. And in fact, it is quite logical since, with the great expansion that the cannabis market is having, other cannabinoids derived from hemp and CBD appeared, such as HHC, Delta-10, and Delta-8, which makes some people wonder if Delta-8 pre-rolls get you high or how much THC they contain. The good news is that you have nothing to worry about when it comes to CBD pre-rolls, as although CBD can have powerful relaxing effects, a CBD pre-roll will not give you any high. This is because CBD itself is not intoxicating and does not generate any psychoactive effect.

The effects that your CBD pre-roll generates on you may vary a bit depending on whether the CBD flower it contains is Indica, Sativa, or hybrid. When smoking a CBD Indica flower, you might feel more like sitting back or just relaxing at home or with your friends; it might even help you sleep better. When you smoke a CBD Sativa strain, you may experience more energizing effects. These effects might make you want to go out and enjoy some time in the fresh air or do some activity that allows you to unleash the boost of energy and good spirits that you will experience. When the strain is a hybrid, you will likely experience balanced effects that can vary and be more or less energizing or relaxing depending on the Indica: Sativa ratio of the strain you choose to smoke.

Where to buy CBD pre-rolls

The signing of the 2018 Farm Bill brought with it many beneficial changes for the cannabis market, medicinal users, and hemp lovers. One of these changes is that hemp, its production, sale, and derived products are completely legal in practically all of the United States. Of course, this includes CBD pre-rolls. Therefore, getting CBD pre-rolls can be quite simple these days, and we could say that surely in the dispensary or smoke shop closest to you, there will be some CBD pre-rolls from which you can choose your favorite. However, with this change in the level of legality of CBD, the increasing demand for products that contain it, and the fact that many of these products do not need FDA approval to be marketed, malicious retailers may appear. In fact, there have been user reports about retailers offering dubious-quality CBD products that may not contain what it is labeled or even contain harmful agents such as pesticides or other products that could risk consumers’ health.

This is why it is best to get your CBD pre-rolls from reliable companies that offer their customers quality and third-party-lab-tested products to ensure that you are really buying what it says on the label and avoid any kind of unwanted effect or uncomfortable situation.
