Pre-ground rolling packs have become wildly popular due to a combination of practicality, convenience and affordability.
Ready-to-roll packs usually contain around half an oz of pre-ground flower and rolling papers, just about everything you need to get high on the go. They’re great for adventures, nights out with friends, and other low-stakes situations where you want to roll up, roll often, and share with whomever — sans the feeling of guilt that comes with squandering top shelf flower at $20 a gram.
The caveat? For one, mechanically ground flower loses a lot of the trichomes containing the chemical compounds, like terpenes and cannabinoids, that get you high. The packs also dry out way faster than full nugs. And two, it’s easy for brands to grind anything into that fine powder you’re rolling, like stems, leaves, and other fillers, without you knowing. Purchasing these rolling packs, especially since you can’t see what’s going on inside them through opaque packaging, can be a bit of a minefield.
But regardless of the minor downsides, the price of cannabis is totally out of control. Half an ounce of potent mids for $50 is a godsend of a deal to many, especially those who want or need to be smoking all the time but haven’t cashed out on that crypto quite yet.
So we’ve simplified the pre-ground guessing game by sampling all the packs on the market and picking only the best. Here are seven of the best pre-ground packs that are ready to roll wherever you are.
