Forget about ever rolling another joint by hand.
Some might argue that rolling your own joint is a quintessential part of smoking cannabis. The weedy ritual, which can range from a skill to a craft to an outright medium of art, is something many weedophiles perfect over their cannabis “careers.” But as the legal weed space continues to mature, the pre-rolled joint could, and potentially already has, replace the act of joint-rolling altogether.
The pre-roll has become so popular, in fact, the industry insight firm BDS Analytics felt compelled to pull together some sales data. They discovered retailers in Colorado, Washington, and Oregon sold more than $158 million worth of pre-rolls in 2016 alone. With so many consumers not twisting up their own jays, the market sector has seen explosive growth and new joint-rolling technology has emerged. As pre-rolls evolve into some of the most luxe products sold, a number of celebrities have even entered the space, while a slew of businesses are capitalizing on the opportunity to deliver a modern take on arguably the most classic of cannabis experiences.
