The first thing to look for in a pre-roll is whether the product has a filter or is unfiltered. Many filtered CBD or Delta 8 pre-rolls will look and feel like a traditional cigarette. They are often even packaged in packs that resemble traditional cigarette packs. The main difference between a CBD or Delta 8 pre-roll or cigarette from a traditional cigarette is that a CBD or Delta 8 product contains only hemp and not tobacco. This means it does not have nicotine and some of the other harmful materials in it that tobacco has.
The primary benefit of a filtered product is that it filters the hemp flower so that no loose flower accidentally gets into your mouth. Some users may report a smoother taste with the filter. A filtered product can also be flavored with some flavoring options added to the filter.
Unfiltered pre-rolls are exactly as they sound. They are CBD or Delta 8 pre-rolls without any type of filter. This means that the hemp flower is rolled in a traditional rolling paper without any filter on the product. The smoke from an unfiltered pre-roll may be slightly harsher due to the lack of a filter. However, some users report stronger effects because of no filter.
