While I’ve experimented with the different types of consumption methods, I prefer old-school smoking.
I find the process of it especially relaxing and enjoyable.
I appreciate the flavor and rapid onset of effects. Unfortunately, I’m not capable of rolling a decent joint. I’ve practiced and simply can’t manage it. I either pack too much or too little weed into the joint. I then roll the paper too tight or too loose. Sometimes, my hand-rolled joints refuse to stay lit. Other times, they burn way too quickly and create an incredibly long ash. I also create a bit of a mess when I attempt to roll a joint. There’s a great deal of waste. I find it aggravating that I need to keep so much equipment handy. I don’t always have access to a grinder and papers. Initially, I was reluctant to try pre-rolls. I’d heard that they were made of lower quality weed such as shake or trim. I don’t want to smoke a bunch of sticks and seeds. I am particular about the quality of the bud. For me, smoking weed is an indulgence. It’s a treat that I look forward to. I only smoke after work or on the weekends, when I need to de-stress. I am willing to pay more for top-shelf flower. I am very thankful that the dispensaries in Albuquerque offer a wide variety of pre-rolled joints and blunts. They sell machine-rolled and hand-roll options, and I can purchase products infused with concentrate for an extra boost of flavor and potency. Singles are affordable enough that I can try something new. Or I can save money buying packs of my favorites. I have had no trouble finding the most well-respected producers and most popular strains on the shelves. I can trust in a consistent and smooth burn every time.
