Do you smoke a CBD pre-rolls or CBD cigarettes? Do you smoke Delta-8 pre-rolls or Delta-8 joints? How do you decide which one is best for you?
In the United States legal cannabis market, there are now all sorts of pre-rolled joints available full of different cannabinoids. Two of the most popular choices are Delta-8 THC Pre-Rolls and CBD Pre-Rolls. They’re both derived from the hemp plant but feature entirely different experiences. In this article, you will learn what delta 8 and CBD pre-rolls are, as well as the key differences between these pre-rolled smokables so you can figure out what suits you best.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid naturally found in cannabis. Of the more than 100 cannabinoids known to exist in cannabis, CBD is by far one of the most researched substances. It's one of at least 85 active substances found in cannabis plants, and it's increasingly gaining popularity with people looking for alternative methods of daily wellness and to make life feel a little smoother.
Similar to THC, CBD is absorbed by the body through the endocannabinoid system, a group of cannabinoid-friendly receptors that regulates immune function, sleep patterns, and reproductive health. However, unlike THC, CBD does not bind to the main CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body; instead, it functions to control how these receptors and cannabinoids interact.
Delta-8 THC (Delta-8 tetrahydrocannabinol) is another cannabinoid found in cannabis. It is becoming more and more popular because it is similar to the most well-known cannabinoid in cannabis: Delta-9 THC. Delta-9 THC is what has made marijuana so popular. It’s known for causing euphoria, happiness, the munchies, relief, laughing at dumb stuff, and more.
The difference between Delta-8 and Delta-9 is that, while similar, D8 is said to be smoother and milder than standard marijuana (this is as much a warning as a prediction.) Many people prefer these smoother, milder effects as Delta-8 is a weaker intoxicant. But enough about Delta-9. We’re here to talk about Delta-8 and CBD.
No. They are two different cannabinoids. While they share some similarities, the primary difference is that Delta-8 is psychoactive.
CBD is a cannabinoid that doesn't get you high and has mildly relaxing effects, while delta 8 is basically the same thing as “regular” THC. Delta 8 will definitely get you high, but CBD will not get you high, even if you smoke it. From a legal point of view, CBD and delta 8 are both considered industrial hemp covered under the 2018 Farm Bill. However, some states and local areas have taken steps to limit the sale of Delta-8 for different reasons.
Yes. Delta-8 is different from CBD in that it makes people feel high. You won't get as high on D8 as you would on Delta 9, but you'll definitely feel it.
A pre-roll is a pre-rolled joint or cigarette. In general, pre-rolls are better than what most smokers can make on their own, even if they have a rolling machine and good papers. Pre-rolled joints are easy and convenient for people who smoke marijuana or who smoke any form of hemp. They are super convenient because all you need to do is take one out of the tube of package and light it up.
A CBD pre-roll is a joint that has already been rolled and has CBD-rich hemp in it. Our CBD pre-rolls are rolled in hemp paper. They are safest and best when they are made with organic hemp flower and come with lab reports to prove its purity and potency.
A delta 8 pre-roll is a hemp joint that has already been rolled and has a lot of delta 8 THC in it. Most of the time, the D8 in delta 8 pre-rolls is made from another cannabinoid and then sprayed on hemp with CBD or CBG.
Our pre-rolled joints have either 0.5g or 1g of cannabis that has been ground up. If it's more than that, it's usually called a blunt and usually uses thicker paper to keep it all together. Pre-rolls that are closer to the 0.5g end of the size range are often easier to use because a person can easily smoke the whole thing in one session. Lab reports are available to see exact quantities.
