Switch to Raw for pre rolls?

I’m writing this while puffing on a freebie of “DJ Blueberry” and all though the flavor is great, I think switching to Raw cones would significantly increase the purchases of the pre rolls, as they don’t seem to be too popular. Most wholesale pre roll cones leave a bad aftertaste in my mouth, does that happen to anyone else?

    RAW is essential for rolling. Or natural hemp papers. Everything else tastes like..paper.

    No complaints so far for MM papers from me..

  • I think the pre-rolls will only be popular with a certain type of customer, not a connoisseur, either.

    I confess to smoking rice paper Zig Zags. It's like comfort food.

  • Smoking joints seems like such a waste to me. I smoke too much and too much burns without me smoking it.

  • I've tried other methods but don't like them. I have a wide variety of pipes but I always get stuff in my mouth. Or lungs. Probably doing it wrong. Also, the cleaning and maintenance. I don't like equipment, I guess, at least for smoking cannabis. I like the idea of pipes, though.

    My parents played woodwind instruments and had Zig-zags, in the white package, for cleaning the moisture out of mouthpieces and keys. My first smoking experiences were hand-rolled joints, in rolling papers stolen from their instrument cases...

    I only smoke part of each joint. I throw the rest, with the resinous rolling papers, into some super-high proof ethanol. About once a month I convert the old joints, and bud I don't like, into oil.

    Back to RAW, though--it's one of my favorites because it seems the least likely to contaminate my oils. Still like my Zig-zags, though...

  • I'm with @Sixwaychili on this one. A good chunk of the bud in joints ends up just being a burnt offering to the weed gods, while the rest you get to inhale and enjoy. When I smoke my pipe or bong, 90% of the smoke goes right into my lungs where it belongs.
    Cleaning my pipes and bongs feels more like a ritual than a chore. I'm a gun nut and feel the same way about cleaning my firearms, there's something zen-like about it.
    And absolutely NO ONE should smoke blunts unless they like the idea of emphysema and eventually lung cancer, just my two cents.

    I'm a glass/pipe/bong/vape person. Never use cigar wraps/blunts🤢😷. RAW papers for socializing, which is rare..and now non-existent during these times.

    I just got a new glass pipe that does not require screens. Anything that falls through falls into a chamber that I am not sucking into my mouth. Really easy to clean in alcohol about once a week or so. I freaking hate screens that are always either clogging or ripping.

  • old school pipe man here- my metal pipe is carburated (that is, shotgun) so that I can add more air to every hit... yes you will have to change / clean your steel screens..
    Surprised that no one has mentioned that you just cut one joint into sections and pack your bowl with the sectioned joint - you can get at least 3 packed bowls per joint ... not worried about smoking a pipe because I did not use cannabis use at all for 32 years.... practice safe cannabis usage...

  • Such great feedback, I’m actually a bong man myself, pipes have always irritated my throat, probably because they were cheap wholesale glass, but I’ll never turn down a joint!

  • Yes, RAW!

    I like it RAW!

    Give it to me RAW!

    Sorry, Gainesville, Florida resident... the original origin of RAW!

    Go Gators!

    P.s. don't buy cones. Learn how to roll a proper joint. Ugh...newbs.

    @georgetirebiter - I like the rice papers too. BTW: a standard pack of orange Zig-Zag's goes for $3 bucks here in Texas.

    @agingboomerfl - I have a homemade pipe made from cherrywood. Basically a rectangular shaped block of wood with holes drilled into it. had it for years, it is very much seasoned. I also cut up my pre-rolls when I order them and do the same thing.

    I do not like the cones. They may be much easier to load, but they waste a lot of smoke. When I have used them, I feel like I am smoking a cigarette more than I am toking on a joint. I like holding that tiny roach, pinching it while I toke that last couple of tokes, hoping I don't inhale it at the end.

    (thinking of the image of Tommy Chong finding a roach, lighting it and then inhaling it by accident in the movie "Up In Smoke")
