Hemp pre-rolls are becoming more and more popular as consumers incorporate new methods of CBD consumption, including inhalation using hemp pre-rolls. We recommend incorporating a variety of CBD ingestible products into your daily routine while using a inhalable CBD occasionally -- like when you want to feel the effects of CBD quickly.
CBD oil is the most common hemp product, but there are plenty of ways to consume CBD. Hemp pre-rolls work with the body the same way other CBD products do, and that’s through the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a system found in all human beings and animals, and it receives cannabinoids like CBD via its CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Here’s why hemp pre-rolls are the CBD delivery choice for many:
1. Hemp pre-rolls work immediately.
Hemp flower pre-rolls work quickly -- sometimes even instantly! While it’ll take a bit for the peak to hit, you’ll often begin to feel the effects of CBD as soon as you inhale. This is the number one reason people like hemp pre-rolls so much. You should feel the effects from smoking hemp-derived CBD for 2-6 hours, depending on circumstances like:
- How often you consume
- The potency of the pre-roll
- The amount of fat on your body
- What and how much you’ve eaten that day
2. Smoking CBD is highly bioavailable.
CBD consumed via pre-rolls has high bioavailability, meaning the CBD is able to enter the circulation at the moment it’s introduced into the body enabling the user to feel its effects faster. In fact, this systematic review concludes that inhaling CBD via smoking has a bioavailability rate of 31%, much greater than other consumption methods.
This consumption method is ideal for those suffering from temporary discomfort like nausea because they work quickly and the consumer can begin feeling relief almost immediately. CBD hemp pre-rolls are for more than just nausea. Anyone seeking immediate relief might turn to hemp CBD pre-rolls over other methods of consumption, like those experiencing pain or anxiety sufferers. Other reasons people might consume CBD are:
- To improve sleep
- For stress management
- To calm down
- To achieve clear mental focus
3. Hemp pre-rolls don’t require you to digest or swallow anything.
Edibles require digestion, and people who are unable to hold down food won’t even be able to digest the full cannabinoid profile before getting sick and losing it all. Nausea is one of the most common reasons people turn to cannabinoid therapy, and smoking hemp joints is sometimes easier to tolerate than eating.
When it comes to CBD oils, the method of consumption is sublingual. This means the cannabinoids are being delivered under your tongue as you hold the oil there, then you’ll swallow afterward. This method is also difficult for people who have a hard time tolerating food, and for those who may have sensory aversions to oils.
4. Hemp pre-rolls won’t get you high.
Even though you’re smoking, you won’t get high. You’ll feel the effects strongly, and you might be a little sleepy if you consume too much, but you won’t be high.
Don’t get confused. It’s a common misconception that hemp-derived CBD is THC-free as hemp flower does contain a trace amount of THC. This small amount of THC is not nearly enough to cause an intoxicating effect. The minuscule amounts of THC contribute to a very important phenomenon called the entourage effect.
The entourage effect is the idea that cannabinoids work better together instead of apart, and you’ll find all of these cannabinoids in hemp pre-rolls. There are over 100 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, including CBD and THC. The entourage effect also works with terpenes, another plant compound found in the cannabis plant.
The entourage effect takes place when cannabinoids are interacting with the endocannabinoid system. The receptors we mentioned earlier, CB1 and CB2 receptors, work by directly engaging with cannabinoids to create homeostasis in the body.
THC meets the CB1 receptor like a key and creates effects in the body. CBD doesn’t do this, and works in a more roundabout way instead of directly engaging with the receptors. There is an abundance of receptors in the brain, responsible for creating the high that comes with consuming THC. Because CBD doesn’t interact with receptors in the same way, it doesn’t create a high.
5. They’re easier to dose than grinding your own hemp flower.
It's about more than the scale! The genetics of the plant as well as the cultivation techniques impact a strain's potency level (the total amount and ratio of CBD to other minor cannabinoids). In order to dose oneself properly, you would need a COA of the flower and then calculate the quantity you'd want to consume before breaking it off, grinding and rolling it.
When you grind your hemp flower, it’s hard to tell exactly how much you’re using unless you weigh it out all the time. That isn’t convenient for everyone, and some people don’t want to buy a scale.
This is where hemp pre-rolls come in. Every good hemp roll package will tell you how much flower is in each pre-roll. That way, you know exactly how much you are consuming during your smoking experience. It’s easier for you to get the right dosage, and prevents you from over or under buying pre-rolls in the future!
Each Slice of Toast Emerald contains 100mg of CBD plus CBG, CBC, and other cannabinoids.
6. They are relatively easy to buy.
Depending on your state, you can purchase them online or in-store at a CBD retailer. It is very important that you don’t just buy the first thing you see that says hemp CBD though. The hemp plant is highly absorbent, and absorbs every mineral and nutrient from the soil in which it grows. This means that it may even absorb some harmful heavy metals and pesticides if a grower is using them. Here are some things to look for to ensure you are getting a high quality product:
- A company with at least one USDA Certified Organic product. This shows the company’s commitment to quality and ensures you’re getting something superior.
A verifiable Certificate of Analysis on the company’s website, making certain you get what you pay for. Make sure that the COA does more than confirm potency as it should also test for heavy metals, mycotoxins, and pesticides.
- Plenty of resources to educate you about CBD, especially inhaling hemp flower!

Check With Your Physician
It’s always important to talk to a CBD-educated physician that knows your medical history before introducing CBD into your routine. New research shows that smoking cannabis may not harm the lungs like we once believed, but it’s important to chat with your doctor before beginning any treatment plan.
