The case for pre-rolls may be obvious but occasionally needs reassertion – convenience, ease of handling, disposability, the ability to make fingers do the work of rolling as well as the assurance you need to smoke the thing down to the filter.

An Orson Welles-like nimbus of old-school smoke does wonders for personal mystique anyway. Each jay in this three-joint tin is stubby and about three inches from tip to filter.

This particular batch is Ringo’s Gift, one of the highest CBD strains out there and near-legendary among the growing hordes of CBD fans. This straight hybrid cross between Canna-Tsu and Harlequin is widely recommended for athletes and the physically active, with a THC content of 0.7% and CBD of 16.8%.

Marijuana reviews:  Fitness-aid strains and products

I’ve raved about Marley Natural Black before and (correctly) figured Red to be quality goods. The buzz imparted was extremely mild and mostly behind the eyes but the sense of overall physical well-being was just short of profound.

You don’t have to search very far on the Internet to find stories of miracle pain relief from high CBD weed and the skeptical may be rightly wary of free medical advice obtained there or anywhere.

What it indisputably did for me is help relax muscles, while instilling sharp visuals and, unsurprisingly, epic hunger. Ringo’s Gift is named for the late Lawrence Ringo, the “King of CBD” and medical marijuana pioneer.
