PreRolled Joints & Pipes Are Two Great Ways To Consume Cannabis

Way back in 800 A.D, hashish was widely used across the world. A variety of cultures have been consuming cannabis hash for generations. Even though cannabis use was not as “normalized” as it is today, the hashish was still primarily smoked using a pipe. Fast forward to today and we’ve got people smoking joints, bongs, blunts, and a whole new niche of people that are dabbing concentrates. Although you can smoke concentrates, smoking and dabbing are not the same thing.

Here in the United States, cannabis has been criminalized nationwide for quite some time. Up until about 20 years ago, cannabis wasn’t legal by any means and people who were caught with it were often given harsh sentences. Even today, many cities across the country are not friendly to cannabis whatsoever. Getting caught with cannabis flower is often treated differently than oils, edibles, and other concentrate products.

Although the legal perception of cannabis is seemingly loosening with each day, some states that have legalized didn’t initially start with all of the different types of cannabis products. Some products in the concentrate category weren’t included on the initial medical or recreational rollouts in a few states across the country.

One of the best things about cannabis is that there are various consumption methods and a wide variety of products. Dabbing concentrates is one of the best ways to efficiently get a buzz or integrate CBD into your life and smoking cannabis can often relieve anxiety or digestive issues pretty quick. Below is a quick list of different ways you can smoke and some products we recommend.

Pre-Rolled Joints

Joints are arguably the most common way people are choosing to consume cannabis these days. With a variety of pre-rolls available at our store, this method is extremely simple and effective. For first time users, this is a great option because it’s generally inexpensive depending on the product you decide to go with. Infused joints usually include kief or some kind of distillate or rosin and those types of items are generally more expensive that your standard flower joint.

Joints can be found at all dispensaries as they are commonly sold at every cannabis retailer. At our stores, we recommend trying some of the prerolls from Seattle Private Reserve and Phat Panda. These definitely farms cultivate cannabis that usually tastes great and has a terpene profile that is consistent to the strain.


If you think joints are easy, pipes are also extremely simple. Grab a small pinch of cannabis flower, toss it in the bowl of a pipe, and add fire. Put your lips to the end of the pipe and inhale using your finger to plug and unplug the “carb” or hole on the side. Water based pipes aka bubblers and bongs, are also a great options and include their own unique experiences.

One thing to keep in mind with pipes is that they’ll need maintenance from time to time to prevent buildup and gunky goopy gross stuff. There are inexpensive options to for small pipes between $5-$50. For larger and more artistically crafted pipes, they can be significantly more expensive. In the case of most pipes, it would be worth it to keep the maintenance up as replacements can get costly. If you’re planning on smoking some flower through a pipe, we recommend trying out some Oregon Diesel from DNA Gardens. If you are looking for a heavier sleepy/hungry effect, go with the MAC from OZ Gardens. If you liked the old Gorilla Glue strains, it is a well known fact across the greater Seattle area that Gold Leaf Gardens GG4 is one of the best in the land.

Overall, consumption methods and the strains you end up going with come down to each individual’s needs and wants. There are many ways for a person to customize the consumption method to have the best experience as possible. For first time consumers, it’s best to be honest with what you’re looking for and to get a professional opinion from a budtender at one of our local dispensaries. The most knowledge an individual has about cannabis, it will lead to a more safer and positive experience.
