Rolls are a great introduction to smoking weed and experimenting with different strains of weed. They require no effort to roll, are cheaper than buying whole eighths, and can be found in every dispensary.

But with so many options, you might find yourself a little overwhelmed with the shopping process—especially in Colorado, where many of the brands you smoke come directly from the dispensaries that sell them.

So we took a trip to Colorado to check out a few different pre-rolls and to whip up the cream of the crop. Keep scrolling for our list of the best pre-rolls in Colorado for every situation.

Who am I, you ask? If you’re not familiar with my work, I’m Dante Jordan, the longtime cannabis journalist and columnist behind The Drop. I’ve been writing about weeds for years for Weedmaps but also Leafly, High Times, Thrillist, and many other publications. I also host a weekly newsletter called Wordsneversaid.com (Wordsneversaid.com), where I discuss the intersections of personal growth, travel, cannabis, and just about everything in life.

For me, all weed decisions about quality ultimately boil down to how you smoke it. Hemp can smell good, but if it doesn’t taste good, hit it hard, and provides a really good feel-good kind, I won’t be buying this product a second time. When I try to run a new pre-declaration, I look at:

  • flavor: Really, the best thing about smoking weed is all the different flavors that come from the different strains. Of course, I can get high from smoking anything with THC in it, but the taste of weed is a huge dividing line between good and bad, as bad weed can sometimes taste like grass, hay, or even straight air.
  • Smokeability: When I smoke poorly formed joints full of nasty weed, they leave me coughing and my throat irritated. This is why it’s important to me to buy pre-rolls—or any weed, for that matter—from reputable brands that care about my experience.
  • Effect: In the end, whether I smoke rolls to start, complete, or end my day, I want it to feel good and to last a long time. If the effects aren’t there and happiness doesn’t stick to me, I’m not interested.


These are the ready-made Colorado brands that do it all for me, nailing the flavor, smokiness, and effects.


In terms of strain variety, quality, smokability, and experience, you won’t find a better Colorado pre-roll than 710 Labs Pasta. The brand has quite a footprint in California, but it really originated in Colorado in 2009. Since then, it’s managed to explode into one of the biggest brands in the state, and it’s truly one of the best cannabis brands around.

The famous 710 Noodle is a one-gram roll that has rotini noodles as a crutch, helping to improve airflow as the delicious smoke travels from the joint to your lungs. The noodles are hand-rolled and hand-rolled, which ensures a higher quality than using machines.

You can get 710 noodle bars as single smokers or in groups of ten. If you want to suggest a breed, I lean toward Trop Cookies and White Tahoe Cookies.


Maggie’s Farm is an award-winning dispensary chain with locations in Colorado Springs, Canyon City, Manitou Springs, and Pueblo. In addition to selling, they also make some really good weed—the pre-rolls are some of the best sellers in the state.

Maggie’s Farm is a Clean Green certified company, which means they practice organic practices like growing in the sun and renewable farming.

For those with a medical card, you’ll have access to a whole host of pre-rolls, including the best-selling Clementine Kush and Jupitella Kush. If you’re just entertaining, right now, Golden Marmalade is my go-to.


If you’re looking for a brand that consistently turns up the heat, with a wide range of strains and flavors, Veritas Fine Cannabis has you covered. The weed is top notch and smokes nicely; Plus, everything it does is single source, small batch, and cut by hand.

Veritas pre-rolls come in both regular and knuckle flower pre-rolls. If you want a regular flower, a 3-pack of 1-gram knuckles is an excellent buy that lets you try fire strains like Papaya Cake, Cherry Diesel, and Forbidden Melonz. For some difference in added potency and flavor, the soaked knuckles contain 1 gram of flower and 0.25 gram of ice water hash.


It’s hard not to enjoy Viola’s pre-rolls, especially the 10-pack of minis that contain 0.25-gram mini joints and are excellent for single smoking and taking out on the go. Pre-made viola rolls are made from whole flower and available in a variety of strains, varying by dispensary. The brand is also available in Michigan and California.


Artsy’s pre-made rolls are made with premium quality flowers that taste good, burn smoothly, and get a high quality ratio at an affordable price.

The Denver-based company has several different strains, but for the best introduction, go ahead and try Purple Burkel. It’s an indie-dominant cross of Pre-98 Bubba Kush and Granddaddy Purple that produces very relaxing and calming effects for me personally.


You know the name, you know the big blue building, you know the big white “C.”

Denver cookies have some of the best rolls (and brands) the state has to offer. You can buy an assortment of 1 gram smokes in different strains, such as Collins Ave and Azul Runts, as well as a 6-pack of cookie knuckles.


Indico pre-rolls come in half-gram, single-gram, or multi-packs of half-gram joints. The indico flower won the hemp cups and is well worth your money as a colorado shopper.


Here are some great options for Colorado tokens on a budget.


Terrapin Care Station is a dispensary chain that also produces herbs. Terrapin pre-rolled joints are a good buy for anyone who needs a little help with their pockets. You can buy it as a single gram or as a five-gram multipack for about $25.


Pure Blaze pre-rolls are Clean Green certified and available in indica, sativa, or hybrid blend options. If you like an affordable organic hemp option grown in the sun, buy yourself some of these.


Colorado absolutely loves pre-roll, so when you look at this and a handful of dispensary lists, odds are that your best choice will include focus with flower.


Kaviar cones are probably the best pre-lap option in Colorado. They smoke really good, taste great, and have super strength.

The “caviar cone” is basically a joint shaped like moon rock. Moonrocks are when you take a cannabis flower and coat it in hash oil and then cover it in kief. Kaviar rolls are the joint version of this product – they are 1.5 gram filled joints that can keep you smoking for hours. In addition, it comes with a glass tip for added luxury, which is important in the smoothness of the smoke. You really can’t go wrong.

Kaviar rolls are sold as a sativa hybrid, an indica hybrid.


The Flower Collective’s bubble joints are among Colorado’s most popular—and for good reason. They total 0.7 grams and are filled with both hemp flower and bubble hash – hence the name “bubble joints”. Bubble hash is a non-solvent concentrate that provides a natural terpene profile, is full of flavor, and contains a high concentration of cannabinoids.

TFC bubble joints are not pressure specific joints but are blended into sativa, indica, and hybrid classes. They burn slowly, taste good, and provide the subtle experience you’re looking for when smoking pre-rolls. Simply put: these pre-rolls get me high.


An old-school company that’s been around since 2011, Eureka has many types of stuffed joints, including classics, fusions, and premium pre-rolls. The classics are infused with distillate and added cannabis-derived terpenes; Fusion is infused with distillates and terpenes derived from natural fruit; And the premium pre-roll rolls are the absolute best, because they’re infused with live resin and live hemp terpenes. They all come in half gram and one gram rolls.

If you are going to buy these joints, go with the premium option as they are the most tasting and most effective of the bunch.


Rounding out this list is DaDirri Extracts, with two pre-roll options: Caviar Sunrocks cones and bubble cones. You can take them as half-gram or one-gram joints.

Caviar Sunrocks cones are rolled with distillate-soaked buds and then topped with some nice bubble hash. DaDirri bubble cones are filled with bubble fraction without distillate. Both are excellent choices, but those bubble cones are the real champ.
