Rolling your own hemp flower pre roll can be a task for some, so we thought we would share our three step process to rolling a perfect hemp joint. It’s really the second step that makes all the difference and takes your hemp pre roll to the next level. As we will explain, hemp flower is delicious to smoke, if it’s properly cured, organic hemp buds. Remember, we said hemp buds, not the stems they are attached to. Unfortunately, cannabis and hemp stems are quite harsh in taste and are best left out of a premium hemp flower pre roll. Now let’s roll!
Things You Will Need
1. Premium Organic Hemp Flower
2. A Grinder
3. A Metal Mesh Screen/Strainer
4. A Pre Roll
5. A Poker Tool/Pen
After deciding on your hemp strain of choice, you will want to separate as much hemp bud from the mainstem and smaller offshoot stems as well. This can be a bit of a process, but realize most of the cannabinoids are in the terpene rich hemp flower material and not the stem. Place de-stemmed hemp buds in a grinder and grind until thoroughly ground.
This is where the magic happens in my opinion and something I never thought of, in my first several years of cannabis and hemp flower smoking. You want to run your ground hemp buds through a fine metal mesh strainer, to separate the hemp flower from any small stem fragments. Empty contents of the grinder into the mesh strainer, placed over a rolling tray.
You will need to agitate the buds for a bit and thoroughly work them through the strainer with your hands, as the mesh is quite fine and will break up the bud to a fine consistency, once pushed through the screen.
You might even have to break a few bud pieces down by hand that the grinder did not catch. What will be left behind will be dozens of stem fragments that were broken up while grinding. These stem pieces would add a good amount of harshness to your hemp pre roll, so the extra step really makes a noticeable difference.
The smoke will be significantly smoother without all the stems. The thing that always amazes me is just how much stem gets caught in the strainer! It’s kind of hard to believe I was smoking all of that stem, for all those years. The fine ground, screened hemp flower below, is ideal for a smooth, even burning pre roll.
For Dreamland Organics customers, you will be happy to know there are no stems in your hemp flower pre rolls, as this is the process we use for our “Dreamland Blend”.
The strainer you use can vary in size, just make sure to get one which is fine metal mesh. Most dollar stores would have one available.
Make sure not to pack your pre roll too tightly, or you will have a hard time taking a proper toke. The hemp buds need to be packed loosely enough, so that air can flow through the joint. However, they should not be so loosely packed, that there are large gaps of space, causing runs in the pre roll.
You now have the perfect hemp flower pre roll with no harshness and maximum flavor! Most hemp flower pre rolls on the market have stems ground up in the mix and not removed. This produces a stinging harsh taste, that does not make one want to indulge.
