Forget about ever rolling another joint by hand.
If rolling your own joints is a smoker’s right of passage, then buying pre-rolled ones is the reward at the end of that hero’s journey. In contrast to the ready-made joints of decades past, which mainly consisted of dispensary freebies stuffed with leafy, bulk-bin detritus, today’s pre-rolled joints are crafted to meet specific needs.
Whether it’s single pre-rolls, multi-packs, mini joints, or specific effects you’re looking for, there are tons of options these days. But to separate the truly great from the serviceable, the Proper Cannabis Committee (PCC) spent thousands of hours lighting up every pre-roll under the California sun. In the process, they discovered a small handful of brands actually live up to the hype.
This artisanal brand took inspiration from 1970s coastal California and then elevated that inspiration to craft single-strain, 100% all-natural pre-rolls. When shopping this brand, you’ll find both traditional cone-shaped joints and hemp tube pre-rolls that more closely resemble cigarettes. Island also offers pint-sized, half-gram joints that are perfect for solo smoke sessions or small group hangs. As one PCC rater said after smoking a Citrus Wave Mini: "Having a great afternoon in the park. I’m floating along with friends. This is such a relaxing high and that puts me at peace."

In addition to having ultra-hip streetwear vibes, Pure Beauty’s cigarette-style joints deliver distinct, memorable highs that satisfy both new and veteran cannabis consumers. So it should come as no surprise the brand was founded by the same masterminds behind Marley Natural, a premium Washington-based cannabis brand. Between the gorgeous packaging and the indoor-grown, high-quality flower inside, these pre-roll packs are sure to impress. As one rater put it after trying one of their Hybrid Babies, "I'm into these! They're bright and leave me feeling upbeat. Good for I-N-Out with my girls,and the nice and clear comedown doesn't hurt either."

Lowell Herb Co.
You probably first heard about this brand when they were making trendy cannabis flower bouquets, and now you likely see their grown-up packaging elevating dispensary shelves. Lowell's pre-rolls come with nearly a gram of California weed grown on the Golden State's central coast. The highs are cultivated just as carefully as the flower itself, resulting in consistent vibes you can count on. As one rater put it after trying one of their Party Hybrid pre-rolls, "I woke up at 530am, and I'm now experiencing an afternoon crash. With more work to do, this flower is giving the perfect boost to keep going."
