What is the difference between cannabis and hemp?
The plant name “cannabis” refers to a group of three plants with psychoactive properties, known as Cannabis Sativa , Cannabis Indica, and Cannabis Ruderalis. Cannabis Sativa grows tall and skinny and is native more tropical regions including Asia, Africa and Central America. Cannabis Indica grows much shorter and bushier than sativa plants and is native to more arid and mountainous regions like India and Afghanistan. Both Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa varieties are typically what are found in a cannabis dispensary containing high concentrations of THC. Cannabis ruderalis is a short and stalky plant with thick and sturdy stems that typically contains low concentrations of THC.

Will smoking hemp get me high?
Smoking hemp CBD flower does not get you high. Unlike its intoxicating cousin, marijuana, hemp does not contain enough of the cannabinoid THC to get you high. By legal definition, hemp contains only trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), which is far less than cannabis/marijuana you may find in a dispensary (which can contain up to 35% THC!).

What is the difference between a good pre-roll and a bad one?
Is the “pack” consistent throughout the entire pre-roll? There shouldn’t be any creases, indents or loose spots throughout the pre-roll. Too tight of a pack and the pre-roll will not smoke/draw correctly, and too loose of a pack, the pre-roll will burn unevenly or not maintain its structure.
What do you see? It should be beautiful ground hemp flower. What you don’t want to see are stems, seeds or too much leaf through the translucent paper, as these have a much harsher flavor and lower concentration of the plant’s terpenes and cannabinoids.
It’s all about the weight and pack consistency of a pre-roll, not the size. Pre-Rolls do vary in size, depending on the net weight of the pre-roll. Pre-rolls typically range in size from 0.25 grams (small size), up to about 1.25 grams for the larger sizes. Keep in mind that each hemp harvest and grower is different, so even though two different pre-rolls may be the same net weight, they may not always be the same size.
There should always be a pungent aroma coming from the pre-roll. If you do not immediately smell the aroma when you open the package, or the product smells like grass/hay, the product may be older, the hemp wasn’t cured correctly, or the packaging does not properly seal and store the product.
