What is an Indica Marijuana Pre-Roll?
Any long-time cannabis user will tell you that there are different types of cannabis strains in the market. They may even have a particular preference among the different strains. That is because each strain comes with its distinctive characteristics with regards to origins, shapes, and most importantly, effects on smokers. Understanding these differences between the different strains of marijuana is key to establishing one’s preference of the two.
Indica marijuana is a strain of cannabis that is known for its sedative effects that makes it conducive to relaxation periods such as watching movies and night time. This has earned it nicknames such as the ‘couch lock’, ‘in da couch’ and body buzz. Its medicinal qualities include relief of anxiety and sleeping disorders, increasing mental and muscle relaxation, decreasing pain and nausea, and increasing appetite and dopamine in the body. Dopamine plays an essential role in the control of the brain’s motivational and reward centers.
An indica marijuana pre-roll is a joint or blunt that has already been rolled at the time of purchase. It is prepared purely from the indica strain of marijuana. Pre-rolled indica marijuana shares the benefits of all marijuana pre-rolls. Some of the advantages of pre-rolled indica marijuana include low price, ready availability for purchase, convenience, and the opportunity to enjoy well-rolled blunts without the hustle associated with rolling one for yourself. Fans of the indica strain who have nimble fingers and cannot roll themselves a blunt also benefit immensely from indica marijuana pre-rolls. They also present consumers with more options when trying our varieties of the cannabis strain.
How Pre-Rolled Joints Are Made
Pre-rolled indica marijuana joints and blunts are prepared from leftover shake from the flowers of the indica strain. The shake from the indica strain is collected and fed into rolling papers or cones with the help of rolling machines or by hand. In some cases, ground nugs of the indica cannabis can be added to shake to improve the quality of the joints. Once the shake or the mixture has been fed into the cones and rolling papers, they are shaken by a machine to eliminate the air pockets within the mixture and ensure it is well-settled. Caution is also taken to ensure that the contents of each joint are sufficiently tight to ensure a rich burn. That is achieved by gentle tamping, usually done by hand. Lastly, the tip of the roll is twisted to complete the joint.
Machine-rolled indica marijuana pre-rolls have been known to possess a superior aesthetic appeal compared to hand-rolled blunts. Additionally, they are more efficient and are able to roll up to 100 joints at a time. The pre-rolls can then be sold individually or packaged in boxes of joint packs containing between five to ten joints. Joint packs make it easier to share out joints with friends and fellow smokers. Each joint in a joint pack is individually checked before packaging. The packages are then heat-sealed to maintain the freshness of the cannabis indica.
Are There Any Secret Ingredients in Pre-Rolls?
The key ingredient for the indica marijuana pre-roll is the shake from the indica cannabis strain. Shake used to prepare indica marijuana pre-rolls are derived from the leftover resulting from the handling of indica cannabis flower. Small pieces of the indica flower break off as the flower jars are handled by budtenders in dispensaries. The crumbs or shake are then collected and used to prepare pre-rolls. Shake from flowers that have sat in jars for too long are usually dry and therefore form low-quality pre-rolls. Also, shake that contains stems and leaves of the indica plant often makes for low-quality pre-rolls. On the other hand, shake from fresh indica flowers makes for very high-quality pre-rolls. It is important to inquire about the quality of shake used in a pre-roll before purchase to avoid future disappointments.
Plants of the indica strain are known to be short in nature with broad leaves. They are adapted to harsh and low temperate environments such as mountainous regions which is probably responsible for their short flowering cycles. They are, therefore, suited to be grown in colder regions that experience shorter seasons. The indica strain was initially discovered in India, as its name suggests, but is now in many other places around the world as allowed by the law. One can, therefore, grow their own indica marijuana if the region is suitable or buy from established vendors to create their high-quality shake.
