Pre-Rolled Cones vs Pre-Rolled Tubes

Posted by DaySavers Team on Mar 28th 2024

Imagine entering your favorite dispensary or ordering online and facing myriad pre-roll options, each promising a smooth and enjoyable smoke.

You probably don’t have to imagine, as there’s already so much variety on the market. Navigating these choices can be daunting, especially with terms like "cones" and "tubes." However, understanding the differences between these two formats can empower you to make informed decisions based on your preferences.

Choosing between pre-rolled cones and pre-rolled tubes has become a hot topic among cannabis enthusiasts and novices alike. Gone are the days of hastily rolled joints or painstakingly crafted blunts. Today's consumers demand convenience, consistency, and quality in their smoking experience.

As two popular options for pre-packaged cannabis delivery, pre-rolled cones and pre-rolled tubes offer distinct advantages and considerations, each catering to a unique set of preferences and needs.

With their conical shape and pre-fitted filter tips, pre-rolled cones have gained popularity for their ease of use and consistent burn. They offer a convenient solution for those who prefer a quick and hassle-free smoking experience. On the other hand, pre-rolled tubes, with their cylindrical shape and open-ended design, provide more flexibility in customization and filling options. They appeal to users who enjoy hand-packing their joints or experimenting with different strains and blends.

This comprehensive guide delves into the nuances of pre-rolled cones and pre-rolled tubes, exploring their benefits, drawbacks, and suitability for various preferences and lifestyles. Whether you're a seasoned smoker looking to streamline your smoking routine or a curious novice eager to explore the world of pre-rolled cannabis, this blog post aims to equip you with the knowledge and insights needed to make an informed choice.

What are Pre-Rolled Cones?

Pre-rolled cones are precisely what their name suggests: pre-rolled cones of rolling paper designed in a funnel shape. They come with a pre-fitted filter tip, offering convenience for users.

Many enthusiasts argue that pre-rolled cones burn more evenly than tubes, providing a smoother smoking experience. The design of a cone, with its wide opening at one end and narrow tip, allows for easy packing of cannabis into the smaller end.

As the joint burns from the larger end to the smaller one, the amount of cannabinoids inhaled decreases as your high increases, leading to a comfortable high. Some smokers favor this gradual release of cannabinoids. Pre-rolled cones stand out as one of the most popular options among consumers due to their convenience and consistent burn.

What are the Different Types of Pre-Rolled Cones?

When it comes to pre-rolled cones, the options are diverse and plentiful. These cones are crafted from various materials, including white paper, brown paper, organic hemp, and hybrid hemp. Additionally, they are available in different sizes to suit individual preferences, with standard sizes being 70/21mm, 84/26mm, 98/26mm, and 109/26mm.

DaySavers offers a wide range of pre-rolled cones to cater to diverse tastes. Each product is thoroughly tested with top-level assurances to offer you the best smoking experience possible. Our selection includes:

The 109mm King Cone typically reigns as the most sought-after pre-roll cone, boasting a full gram capacity. Its popularity stems from its size and burn quality. However, there's a rising trend toward half-gram cones, appealing to users seeking dual smoke sessions from a single-gram pre-roll.

Each option provides a unique smoking experience, ensuring something suitable for everyone. Explore our collection and find the perfect pre-rolled cones to elevate your smoking sessions. This is all great, but it leaves a lingering question, what about pre-rolled tubes?

What are Pre-Rolled Tubes?

Pre-rolled tubes are cylindrical-shaped pre-rolls that come in white paper, brown paper, hemp, or hybrid hemp. Their design is reminiscent of classic tobacco cigarettes, which adds to their appeal to many users.

Unlike pre-rolled cones, which have a funnel-like shape, pre-rolled tubes maintain a consistent width throughout. This uniformity makes them easier to pack but may result in a less intense smoking experience compared to cones. Despite this, pre-rolled tubes remain popular among smokers for their sleek appearance and convenient packaging.

What are the Different Types of Pre-Rolled Tubes?

Regarding pre-rolled tubes, DaySavers offers a diverse selection defined not only by their paper but also by their tips. We cater to various preferences, offering glass and wood tips, each with unique perks for styling and smoking experience.

Glass tips provide a sleek and sophisticated look, elevating your smoking experience while ensuring a smooth draw. On the other hand, wood tips offer a rustic aesthetic and can even be imbued with flavoring, adding an extra dimension to your smoking sessions.

Our pre-rolled tubes typically measure 109mm, adhering to the standard size for traditional cigarettes. This standardized size ensures compatibility and familiarity for smokers. Explore our range of pre-rolled tubes, including:

Pre-Rolled Cones vs. Pre-Rolled Tubes: Pros and Cons

Each option has its advantages and drawbacks, making it essential for smokers to understand the differences before choosing. Pre-rolled cones offer convenience and customizability, while pre-rolled tubes provide uniformity and traditionalism. Let's delve into the pros and cons of each to help you decide which option suits your smoking preferences best.

Pre-Rolled Cones Pros:

  • Convenient and ready to use, saving time and effort
  • Available in various sizes to cater to individual preferences
  • Provides a subsiding cannabinoid intake due to the shape of the pre-roll enlarging toward the end and becoming smaller at the tip

Pre-Rolled Cones Cons:

  • It can be subject to canoeing as the packing can be uneven due to the expanding diameter of the cone’s shape

Pre-Rolled Tubes Pros:

  • Sleek, traditional, and stylish profile
  • Comes with both glass and wood tips; wood tips can be flavored
  • It could be more efficiently stored compared to cones due to size uniformity

Pre-Rolled Tubes Cons:

  • Typically there are fewer size pre-rolled tubes options than pre-rolled cones
  • Compared to the pre-rolled cone's opening shape, fewer powerful hits at the beginning of the smoking session due to size uniformity

Ultimately, it’s up to you as the consumer to decide your preference. Pre-rolled cones offer a traditional joint experience without having to roll them yourself, simplifying the process and getting you high in record speed. The pre-rolled tube offers you a more effortless packing experience and a traditional, stylish look.

Pre-Roll Paper Options & Their Impact on Burn

Premium Hemp Wrap Blunt Tube with Glass Tip

As we’ve discussed, there are many types of paper that you can use for your pre-rolls. Let’s go over them in more detail.

Hemp paper is one of the most popular choices for pre-roll papers and for good reason. Its inherent strength reduces the likelihood of tearing when packed, maintains shape well, and offers a slightly slower burn than traditional paper. Moreover, hemp's botanical connection to cannabis enhances the overall smoking experience for many users.

Despite hemp's popularity, our white paper pre-rolls remain a consistent bestseller. These cones burn exceptionally smooth, devoid of any added taste or aroma, allowing the pure flavor of the cannabis to shine through. Unlike some white papers, ours achieve their color without using bleaching agents, ensuring a clean and natural smoking experience.

In addition to hemp and refined white options, our range includes:

While our pre-roll papers deliver uniform burns, thicker papers naturally burn slower than their thinner counterparts. This characteristic makes blunt wrap options like hemp wrap, palm leaf, and botanical blunts ideal for those seeking a slower burn and a richer flavor profile. On the other hand, if accentuating the pure taste of cannabis is your goal, traditional paper options prove to be the optimal choice.

Wood Tips vs Glass Tips for Your Pre-Rolls

When choosing between wood and glass tips for pre-rolls, consider each's distinct characteristics.

Wood tips, crafted from natural wood, offer a unique aesthetic appeal and often impart subtle flavors to your smoking experience. They are known for their durability, heat resistance, and comfortable grip. They can also be flavored to spice up your smoke section.

On the other hand, glass tips, made from borosilicate glass, offer a clean and smooth smoking experience. Their transparent design allows you to see the movement of smoke, and they are easy to clean, ensuring a hygienic smoking session.

Pre-Rolls Have Never Had So Many Options

The cannabis market continues to grow and expand, offering consumers more options than ever. One thing is for sure, both pre-rolled cones and pre-rolled tubes offer convenient and enjoyable ways to consume cannabis.

Pre-rolled cones provide consistency, convenience, and customizability, while pre-rolled tubes offer uniformity and a classic look. Whether you prefer the sleek design of cones or the versatility of tubes, there are pre-rolled options to suit every smoker's preference. Explore the variety of options available and find the perfect choice for your next smoke session.
