CBD pre-rolls are convenient, effective, and affordable. For novice smokers, however, developing the perfect pre-roll smoking technique can take some practice, and even experienced cannabis connoisseurs should familiarize themselves with the latest tips and tricks. In this guide, we’ll provide detailed instructions on how to smoke CBD pre-rolls, and we’ll clear up any questions you may have regarding the effects and benefits of these convenient CBD flower products.
How to smoke CBD 101
Let’s start things off with a step-by-step list of instructions you should follow when you’re ready to smoke a pre-roll filled with delicious Secret Nature CBD flower. Follow these steps to get the most out of your CBD smoking experience safely and discreetly:
1. Pick an appropriate place
The middle of a crowded doctor’s waiting room probably isn’t the best place to indulge in a relaxing CBD pre-roll. Likewise, try to avoid smoking your CBD pre-roll on the bus, on a plane, or anywhere else that smoking might be strongly frowned upon or even illegal.
Instead, it’s best to smoke your CBD pre-roll in the comfort of your own home, out on the porch, or in a relaxed social setting. Keep in mind that while it contains less than 0.3% THC, your CBD pre-roll looks and smells just like a marijuana joint, so avoid smoking your pre-roll anywhere that a case of mistaken identity might give onlookers the wrong idea.
2. Find a lighter
Once you’ve found the perfect place to light up and indulge in the potent benefits of inhaled CBD, you’ll need a suitable implement to get your blaze started. While matches might be up to the task, lighting a CBD joint requires a little bit of finesse, so you’d be better off with a lighter.
Choose a normal, compact cigarette lighter—there’s no need to go crazy with a butane torch. Also, please don’t try to light your CBD pre-roll with your stovetop. We prefer your hair the way it is.
3. Puff first, then inhale
The tip of your all-hemp Secret Nature CBD joint is equipped with a small nub of rolling paper that’s designed to help you build a blazing coal at the end of your pre-roll. We assume that you aren’t interested in inhaling smoke derived solely from incinerated hemp rolling paper, so as you light this little nub on fire with your lighter, gently puff at your pre-roll to move the flame toward the tip of the organic, indoor-grown CBD flower that’s packed inside. Once the ground-up flower is lit and burning nicely, feel free to take deep lungfuls of delicious, high-potency Secret Nature CBD smoke.
4. Don’t hold it in
There’s a limit to how much CBD your lungs can absorb in a single breath, and research indicates that cannabinoids like CBD absorb into your lungs within the first few seconds after inhalation anyway. Holding smoke in your lungs for an extended period can actually be harmful, so there’s no benefit to making each puff of your CBD pre-roll last as long as possible. Instead, take deep inhalations that completely fill your lungs with smoke, and then exhale fully after 1-3 seconds.
5. Put your CBD joint out safely
When you’re done smoking your CBD pre-roll, don’t use the smoldering leftovers to play catch with your dog, and don’t throw your still-lit joint into that old, dry wood pile in your backyard. Dispose of your joint properly in an ashtray, or completely crush out the ember glowing inside. Once your depleted joint is completely cool, you can dispose of it in the trash. While we don’t recommend littering, Secret Nature CBD pre-rolls are 100% biodegradable, so you could even compost the burnt-out ends of your joints.
How much of a CBD pre-roll should you smoke?
If this is your first time smoking a CBD pre-roll, it’s natural to wonder how much of your joint you should smoke in a single sitting. Even experienced smokers want to know if they’re smoking too much or too little.
Let’s explain it this way. An average Secret Nature CBD pre-roll contains between 250-300mg of CBD. If you think that’s a lot of CBD, you’re right. For contrast, most CBD gummies and capsules contain between 20-50mg of CBD each, and smoking CBD provides much more potent effects than ingesting it orally.
Due to this high CBD concentration, a single puff of a Secret Nature CBD joint might be enough to satisfy some people. A quarter of a Secret Nature CBD pre-roll contains around 60-75mg of CBD, so some of our customers divide their pre-rolls into four smoking sessions.
It certainly isn’t unheard of, however, to smoke an entire Secret Nature CBD joint at once. CBD is non-intoxicating, and it isn’t habit forming. Therefore, you’re free to smoke as much or as little CBD at a time as you want.
What does smoking a CBD joint taste like?
CBD pre-rolls can have a wide variety of different flavors depending on the terpenes and flavonoids they contain. Beta-caryophyllene, for instance, is a common terpene in Cannabis sativa flower, and this terpene has a spicy, peppery taste. Myrcene, however, which is also found in mangoes, has a fruitier, more tropical flavor, and limonene tastes just like lemons.
While some strains of CBD-rich cannabis have dominant terpenes with flavors that come through strongly, other strains contain roughly equal concentrations of different terpenes that create unique flavors when combined. Secret Nature Papaya Nights pre-rolls, for instance, contain sour and hazy terpenes that make this strain taste just like tropical fruit, and Secret Nature Frosted Kush contains earthy and berry terpenes that produce a classic “kush” flavor.
What are the effects of smoking a CBD pre-roll?
Smoking a CBD joint won’t make you feel paranoid or anxious. Inhaling CBD smoke will, however, provide effects that are considerably stronger than those provided by tinctures, capsules, edibles, or other types of orally ingested or topically applied CBD products.
You’ll most likely feel the onset of the effects of your CBD pre-roll within 1-2 minutes, and these effects will last for around 30-60 minutes. When smoked in pre-roll form, the usual effects of CBD are simply stronger and more noticeable. If you normally become relaxed and sleepy after using CBD, for instance, smoking a pre-roll will accentuate these effects.
The effects of your Secret Nature CBD joint will also be subtly different depending on whether your pre-roll contained an indica, sativa, or hybrid strain. Most users report that indica strains provide deep relaxation, sativa strains provide invigoration, and hybrid strains provide a balanced combination of these effects.
Does smoking a CBD pre-roll get you high?
No. While smoking CBD may provide intense effects, these effects will not be intoxicating or otherwise significantly impact your mental state. Paranoia, confusion, panic, or other common side effects of smoking THC will not occur when you smoke a CBD pre-roll. You can enjoy the effects of a Secret Nature CBD pre-roll, therefore, without worrying about losing track of reality or significantly interrupting your day.
