Infused Pre-Rolls: What Are They & How Are They Made?
Do you love flower and concentrates, but don’t want to have to just pick one? Love smoking flower, but hate rolling your own products or packing a pipe? Infused pre-rolls are the perfect solution for you. You can enjoy your flower and your concentrate without the mess of grinding and rolling your own marijuana. In the latest entry to our cannabis glossary, we’ll give you all the details you need about infused pre-rolls so you know exactly what to ask for—and what you’re going to get—when you shop at your local dispensary.
What is an Infused Pre-Roll?
You know what a pre-roll is: a “joint” you can purchase off the shelf of your dispensary, already rolled and ready to enjoy. An infused pre-roll is a pre-rolled “joint” that is also packed with some type of concentrate, including kief, wax, or shatter. Infused pre-rolls still have all the flavor and scent that a normal pre-roll would, but they are jam-packed with potency thanks to the addition of the concentrate. Because of this, you should always take an infused pre-roll much slower and at a lower dose than you would a non-infused pre-roll.
How are Infused Pre-Rolls Made?
The process of creating infused pre-rolls starts with selecting a quality flower strain. The selected flower is then finely ground, creating a base for the pre-roll. Next, the concentrated cannabis product, whether it's kief, wax, hash, shatter, or moon rocks, is carefully incorporated. The infused pre-roll is then snugly rolled using quality rolling papers.
You can also make your own infused pre-rolls. While you can grind and roll your flower at home, you can also purchase a non-infused pre-roll and add your favorite concentrate to it. For some people, it’s as simple as dipping the end of your pre-roll into a concentrate. Other cannabis enthusiasts get fancy with their pre-rolls, creating little designs of wax on the end of the roll. However you add your concentrate to your pre-roll, the end result is the same: a potent, aromatic, and flavorful experience.
How are Infused Pre-Rolls Different From Regular Pre-Rolls?
Infused pre-rolls are a little bit more intense compared to non-infused pre-rolls because the added concentrate significantly boosts the potency. Additionally, infused pre-rolls may have a richer flavor profile, thanks to the terpenes and cannabinoids that are found in certain types of concentrates. This combination of potency, taste, and aroma makes infused pre-rolls popular among cannabis enthusiasts, both seasoned and new.
What are the Different Types of Infused Pre-Rolls?
Like with most cannabis products, you can find a variety of infused pre-rolls at your dispensary. Here are some of the most common infused pre-rolls for sale:
Kief is the resinous trichomes that cover cannabis flowers. Kief-infused pre-rolls are created by either adding the kief before rolling or by putting a little concentrate on the outside of the pre-roll and then coating it with a layer of kief.
Wax, a cannabis concentrate, is a sticky, pliable product that can be added to the inside or the outside of an infused pre-roll. Whether the end is dipped or the wax is applied before it’s rolled, both options create a unique experience.
Hash is a concentrate made with the dried trichomes of a marijuana plant, also called kief. Hash-infused pre-rolls deliver a robust and distinctive flavor profile, along with potent effects that many cannabis enthusiasts love.
Shatter is a cannabis concentrate known for its glass-like consistency. Shatter-infused pre-rolls, a combination of ground flower and shatter, offer a highly concentrated experience. The translucent appearance of shatter also creates a visually appealing addition to the pre-roll.
A Moon Rock is the name of a specific type of infused pre-roll. The cannabis flower and concentrate are rolled together into a pre-roll that is then dipped in kief.
Answering FAQs About Infused Pre-Rolls
We get it—you want all the details about a product before you make a purchase. Here are some answers you might be looking for:
How do you consume an infused pre-roll?
Infused pre-rolls are consumed in the same way as non-infused pre-rolls. Simply light one end, inhale gently, and enjoy the flavorful and potent smoke. Remember to start with a lower dose until you know your tolerance levels.
Are infused pre-rolls strong?
Yes, infused pre-rolls are typically stronger due to the added cannabis concentrate. Because of this, you should take it slow and at a lower dose until you know how you feel after consuming an infused pre-roll.
What is a diamond-infused pre-roll?
A diamond-infused pre-roll is a pre-roll that has been enhanced with cannabis diamonds. These diamonds are large crystalline structures that contain THCA, which, when decarboxylated, turns into THC.
