When it comes to smoking weed, pre rolls are a popular alternative. They’re small enough that you can consume an entire bowl of cannabis in less than 30 seconds. But they also come with their own set of drawbacks.
Weed smokers love the convenience of pre rolled joints as much as anyone else. It doesn’t matter if you’re stoned or not, you can just pop a CBD pre rolls into your mouth and get right down to business. What could be better?
Unfortunately, there are some downsides to pre rolls that need to be addressed. One is that many pre rolls contain more THC than what’s actually safe for recreational use. Another drawback is that pre rolls are often filled with chemicals that aren’t necessary. The final downside is that most pre rolls don’t even taste good.
If you want to enjoy all of these benefits without having to risk overdosing on THC, you should consider using CBD instead. It’s a safer option that won’t lead to any harmful side effects.
1. Buy CBD Oil
You can buy CBD oil directly from manufacturers like Elixinol, Green Roads, or the many other companies who sell high quality CBD products online. You can find CBD oils in both oral drops and topical creams.
The first step in creating your own pre roll is finding a high quality CBD product. If you have access to a dispensary where you live, it might be possible to pick up a bottle of CBD oil from them. Otherwise, you can always purchase it from a reputable online retailer.
Once you have your bottle of CBD oil, follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using it. This will include how much to take per serving as well as how long you should store the oil before consuming it.
As far as the dosage goes, you can either make your own pre rolls by mixing equal parts CBD oil with coconut butter or you can simply purchase pre made pre rolls that already contain the correct amount of CBD oil.
For example, Elixinol sells prerolled pre rolls that feature 0.5 milligrams of CBD oil per serving. To figure out how many servings you need, divide the number of pre rolls by the milligram dosage. For our purposes here, we’ll say we need 10 servings because each pre roll contains 5 mg of CBD oil.
So, to calculate the total amount of CBD oil in 10 pre rolls, we do this math: 10 pre rolls x 0.5 mg = 5 mg
To put it another way: 5 mg ÷ 100 = 0.05 milligrams per pre roll.
Using this formula, you can create your own pre rolls at home with ease. Just mix the appropriate amount of CBD oil into coconut butter until the mixture looks smooth and spreadable. Then place about one tablespoon of the mixture onto a piece of parchment paper and wrap it tightly around itself to form a cylinder.
Next, cut the cylinder into ten equal slices so that each slice has approximately the same size. Place the sliced pieces on a baking sheet and bake them in the oven for 8 to 12 minutes at 200 degrees Fahrenheit (94 degrees Celsius) until the edges start to turn brown.
Remove them from the oven and let them cool completely before storing them in a mason jar or similar container. Once they’ve cooled, open the jar and add a little bit of water to help keep the contents moist. Store them in a cool dark place away from direct sunlight.
With CBD pre rolls, you don’t even have to worry about making mistakes. All of the calculations have been done for you so there’s no need for guesswork.
2. Order CBD Pills Online
Another alternative to pre rolls involves purchasing cannabidiol pills. These pills contain CBD along with other cannabinoids such as CBG and CBC. Some people prefer to avoid smoking because they can feel nauseous after taking a hit.
If you choose to go this route, you should know that CBD pills come in various shapes and sizes. So, to ensure that you select the right pill for your needs, you’ll need to calculate the milligrams per dose. It’s important to remember that every person metabolizes CBD differently.
To figure out how many milligrams of CBD you need per dose, divide the amount of CBD by the number of milligrams per serving. If you haven’t yet created your own pre rolls, then you might need to experiment with different amounts of CBD until you find the perfect dosage.
For example, consider the following calculation: 300 mg ÷ 250 mg = 1.2 milligrams per serving
This means that you would need to consume 1.2 grams of CBD per serving. That may seem like a lot, but it’s not nearly as bad as it sounds. After all, one gram of CBD oil is equivalent to 3/4 of a teaspoon!
Once you have calculated the number of milligrams of CBD you need per serving, you can order CBD pills online. Many sites offer different options depending on your budget, preferences, and the strength you want to purchase.
If you want to save money, you can opt for cheaper CBD capsules. These pills usually contain less CBD than higher priced pills. But you can still expect to receive between 25 and 50 milligrams of CBD per pill.
On the other hand, if you want to pay a premium for CBD pills, you can expect to consume anywhere from 75 to 150 milligrams per pill.
In addition to cost, the other major factor that affects your decision regarding which type of CBD pills to buy is potency. A lower potency pill will provide you with less CBD per serving. Unfortunately, many of these pills only contain 25 or 50 milligrams of CBD.
But if you’re looking for something stronger, you should definitely choose higher potency CBD pills. These pills typically contain between 75 and 150 milligrams of CBD per serving. They’re also known for providing you with a longer lasting effect compared to lower potency pills.
So, whether you decide to buy CBD tablets or capsules, you should always aim to consume the recommended dosage. Don’t skimp on your dosage, otherwise, you’ll wind up getting sick after taking too much.
