How can I take CBD?
The most popular ways to take CBD are tinctures, topicals, capsules, food and drink infusions. To add to your convenience we have produced hemp flower pre-rolls in four unique strains. What's different from our pre-rolls is that we also infuse our terpenes to improve the smell, taste and effectiveness of our CBD prerolls. Our pre- rolls are made with top quality hemp flower, never shake or biomass. Perfect for those who don't want to take CBD oil as tinctures under their tongue and works faster than edibles.
