The Guide to Pre-Rolled Cones

Sep 24th 2020

If you are someone who is not accustomed to rolling their own cigarettes but still want the experience of a customized smoke, you should consider using pre-rolled cones. Although pre-rolled cones are a little more expensive than traditional rolling papers, they can be bought in a wide variety of quantities and sizes, making it a lot easier to roll the perfect joint every time.

Now, if you are new to rolling or smoking in general, I am sure you are wondering which pre-rolled cones are the best to use. Likewise, you may not be sure of the difference between sizes. Well, the truth is there are countless pre-rolled products available on the market that are available in many different sizes. However, there are a few brands that stand above the rest. Here is a guide to pre-rolled cones as well as the best brands for your pre-rolled cone needs:

What are Pre-Rolled Cones and Why are They Important?

One thing most, if not all, smokers know from first-hand experience is that hand-rolling your own joints or cigarettes can be a little tricky, especially if one is inexperienced and has never tried before. Fortunately, pre-rolled cones are a great alternative to hand-rolling. Using pre-rolled cones eliminates all the potential hardships you can experience from traditional rolling papers. This includes accidentally tearing the paper during the rolling process and rolling an uneven cigarette, which creates an uneven burn and produces a harsher taste.

Another key benefit to pre-rolled cones is it saves you time. Sitting and fiddling around trying to roll your own cigarette, thankfully, is a thing of the past. Likewise, due to their simplicity, using pre-rolled cones ensures you get the perfect product every time, without wasting any of your precious herbs.

Pre-Rolled Cones Sizes

Like rolling papers, pre-rolled cones come in a plethora of sizes. The sizes vary from brand to brand but generally, most brands offer a range of both small and large sizes to accommodate your needs. Some brands even offer pre-rolled cones large enough to allow a whole group of people to share. While sizes can vary across the board, there are a few standard sizes most smoking companies offer:

1 ¼ – Great for beginners

The classic 1 1/4 is your fundamental cone, and perfect for beginners. They are 83 mm in length and have a 26 mm tip. Virtually every brand offers cones in this 1 1/4 size, making them easily accessible. They are also traditionally the smallest size you can find, making it suitable for yourself or for one other person.

King Size – Sharing is caring

As the name suggests, king size cones are significantly larger than the classic 1 1/4. King size cones are generally 105-100 mm long, but with the same mouthpiece as the 1 1/4. Although king size cones are more than enough for one person, these cones are great for smaller group gatherings of a few friends.

Party Size – The more the merrier

Party size cones are when the sizes really start to take off. As you can probably guess, these cones are ideal for party settings and larger groups. Although "party size" is generally a loose term, these cones can range anywhere from 280 to well over 600 mm in length! Due to their sheer size, party size cones are ideal for virtually any social gathering or occasion.

How to Fill Pre-Rolled Cones

Now that you understand the benefits of pre-rolled cones over rolling the traditional way, you still need to know how to fill them properly.

  1. Set aside the amount of herb you wish to smoke.
  2. Next, fill the cone with the appropriate amount of herb.
  3. Once filled, pack it gently using a packing tool or the tip of some similar instrument.
  4. Then, twist the widest end shut.
