Basically, the equivalent to a traditional marijuana joint that most people are familiar with that is smoked (i.e., combusted), and also similar to a common cigarette (but only in shape and method of inhalation). Two types of pre-rolls are being sold in the market: 1) low-quality using leaf, trim, scraps, etc. and 2) CBD flower/bud. What’s the difference? The first type is very low in CBD, yet useful to people looking for an inexpensive option to reduce or quit their nicotine dependency. The second type is the real deal, made for people looking for medical/therapeutic relief from the benefit of CBD flower containing the full-spectrum of CBD, terpenes and other cannabinoids.
What is the benefit of CBD pre-rolls?
In general, CBD pre-rolls provide the same health benefits as other products containing CBD (e.g., tinctures, edibles, drinks, etc.). They may offer benefits of calming and relaxation, pain reduction, and more. However, there are two important differences: 1) bioavailability (i.e., the amount of CBD, terpenes and other cannabinoids that actually enter the bloodstream) is significantly greater when inhaling versus ingesting. Effectively, you’re getting more of what you paid for to actually get into your system. Since everything that’s ingested must go through first-pass digestion in the stomach and liver, very little of what you paid for will end-up in your system; and 2) the speed in which CBD works is significantly-faster when inhaled, since it’s able to enter the bloodstream through Alveoli sacs in the lungs, while CBD ingested may take 30 minutes to 2 hours to be digested before entering the bloodstream.
