Pre-rolls are highly sought after products in the cannabis industry, and it’s important to
highlight the companies doing it right. Too often, pre-rolls are made from the least savory parts
of the plants; lowers, popcorn nugs, shake, and (god forbid) trim. As terrible as this sounds,
we’ve all come across these stale tasting pre-rolls, yet we roll the dice on new brands all the
time. To be fair, the convenience is unmatched when it comes to someone rolling up for you, so
it makes sense that we still search for the perfect PR. What if I could tell you of a brand who
produces FRESH, CLEAN-BURNING, and POTENT pre-rolls?! Look no further folks, your pre-roll
nightmares are over thanks to Hyman Cannabis!
This week I was able to sample and review the new drop of Hyman Cannabis Pre-Rolls. As a
heavy blunt smoker, I naturally scoffed at the idea of a pre-rolled joint; however, I knew I was in
for a treat when I realized each pre-roll was two grams! One reason I lean towards blunts is for
the ability to put more product into the roll, so I was delighted when this joint came ready to
impress! I typically prefer blunts for the ease of smoking; I don’t like to relight or fix running
papers and I don’t enjoy having to intensely inhale to get a decent hit. Hyman must have known
that about joint critics, because they came with solutions. The joints smoked evenly, with the
pack being tight and consistent, burned with a white ash, and utilized a glass tip to increase
airflow. The overall smoking experience felt elegant, convenient, and effective.
As far as the individual strains go, it’s hard to choose a favorite. We were blessed with five
different strains; Wedding Crashers, MAC, Riesling, Loyalty, and Bubblegum Gelato. Each strain
had a unique flavor that lasted throughout the entirety of the session. Whenever I see a
company putting out multiple strains that retain their unique flavor, I know the cultivators are
highly skilled and put love into their grow. I couldn’t taste the nutrients or curing room, just the
pure genetics–the way it should be.
● Wedding Crashers was the perfect strain to start my tasting with. As a classic cross of
Wedding Cake and Purple Punch, this strain produced a well balanced effect with both
my cerebral and physical sensors activated. Although the gassiness of the Wedding Cake
was present, the Purple Punch seemed to balance it out with a little sweetness to create
an earthy, uplifting taste. While it has uplifting terpenes, this strain still packs a powerful
punch. This PR would be an excellent choice for sleep aid, appetite stimulation, or relief
from pain, nausea, and anxiety.
● MAC is always a favorite of mine–those Alien Strains always are! MAC is a combo of Alien
Cookies, Colombian, and Starfighter. Another well balanced strain that smoked strong!
The uplifting citrus notes create a highly euphoric and mood-elevating high, while the
cookie lineage brings the earthy, vanilla, creaminess to the forefront of the palate. This
hybrid seems to offer the best of both worlds in terms of effect and would be a great
choice for users looking to reduce anxiety and depression, to boost creativity, or to
● Riesling instantly caught my attention due to it’s rising popularity in the industry. I’ve
had some lower end Riesling that wasn’t impressive, so I wanted to get an idea of what
good Riesling should be. Let me tell you, I was NOT let down. This beautiful cross of
Grape Pie and Flo White blended into a perfectly musky, peppery, and bright smoke with
an aftertaste of fresh grapes from the vine. The way the sweetness mellows into
something darker perfectly resembles the name. The high was very smooth and hit my
body hard, while mentally I felt engaged, yet relaxed. A great “after work high” to keep
you stimulated for the rest of the night, while helping you shed the stress of daily
requirements. This joint was a tough one to put down.
● Loyalty is from the Hyman Cannabis Southwest T line, with the slogan “you are what you
smoke.” That alone made my eyes light up; the idea of cannabis and loyalty are hand in
hand for many consumers who came up during cannabis criminalization. The dry hit
was incredibly fragrant, with hints of lavender and other floral elements. Upon smoking,
it was much more creamy with an almost vanilla-like taste. The effects leaned on the
more relaxing side making it a perfect dessert smoke to relax and wind down with.
● We ended the tasting with the Bubble Gum Gelato, a notorious cross known for it’s
heavy-hitting effects. The PR lived up to it’s infamy with effect and taste. The dry hit was
pure bubblegum, so sweet and juicy. After the first inhale, the flavor immediately
switches to the potent gas that Gelato is known for. The smoke was thick and coated my
tastebuds with a creamy vanilla dankness, immediately followed by the sweet tangy
terpenes from the Bubblegum. This knockout strain would be beneficial for users
looking for pain relief, sleep aid, or appetite stimulation!
Whichever strain you choose, you’re in for a treat. Whether you’re a Pre-Roll enthusiast or
general cannabis connoisseur, this is not something you will want to miss out on.
