Best 13 Pre-rolls in California 2021

Just grab and puff.  in 2021 Pre-rolls are one of the most popular cannabis products consumed in California.  And even slightly more popular on bud.com, where pre-rolls make up roughly 18% of all products sales.  California loves its pre-rolls and we aim to clue you in to the best brands and pre-rolls California has to offer in 2021.

Awesome right!? Well to be downright candid...pre-rolls have a checkered in past in the Golden State.  The reason-  California has the Nation's most mature cannabis retail market and culture.  We're also obviously known as the mecca of cannabis cultivation.  Back to the 1990's around the time Prop 215 legalized medical marijuana in California, most residents had ready access to outdoor weed grown in Humboldt or Mendo, or one of the thousands of indoor gown in the State.

So what does this have to do with pre-rolls you ask?  The term preroll, was made popular by dispensaries in the late 90s. Previously referred to as joints,Js, doobies, dubs, spliffs, doinks, and whatever you uncle called 'em. The first round of 'commercially' processed joints were mostly the shake at the bottom of the bag.  A Shepherds Pie of duff..but served up super conveniently.  We've come a long way.  Processing technology and packaging have raised the bar.  Pre-rolls are now full flower, pick-your-size and infusion (or not) delight for smokers of all kinds.

The best pre-rolls in California are available for delivery, and here are they are by category:

Best 1G doobie

Bud's Picks Best Cannabis Prerolls - Farmer and The Felon
Bud's Picks - 1G Doobie: Farmer and The Felon

The most common format for single pre-rolls, 1g joints are on available every existing dispensary menu.  As we exit the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021, we hope this shareable products is once again shared between friends.


Cali Indoor growers Connected Cannabis grow and sell some of the best and priciest weed in the State.  At one time this brand was literally connected to Cookies (see below), but have successfully carved out their own share of the market.  In 2021 Connected won first place for Indoor Flower, and the Breeders Cup, essentially signifying 'best in show' at the Emerald Cup, the most prestigious prize for California growers.


Cookies Gary Payton pre-rolls are one of the most popular strains of the year and a top seller from Berner's brand.  Gotta love that Gary Payton, Oakland native and NBA legend is an active and outspoken proponent of cannabis.

Farmer and Felon

The sun grown flower brand from NorCal stalwart Canna Craft, offers solid outdoor weed with a purpose.  They offer a platform for social justice and align with products and organizations working to fix the harm of the failed drug war.  Beyond the social purpose, which we commend and align with, FaF's Gorilla Snacks strain took 1st Place for Sun Grown Flower in Emerald Cup 2021.

Henry's Original is a sustainably grown flower brands boasting Clean Green Certified sun grown flower.  Grown in beautiful Mendocino County, Henry's features dozens of strains between multi-packs and extensive lineup of 1G joints.  Mango Haze, Banana Kush, and Black Mamba are some of the favorites served up in Henry's conspicuous craft packaging.


Unlike many of the products and brands on our list, Canndscent is the brainchild of a former Ivy league and corporate veteran.  Accordingly their approach is different.  Canndescent was one of first brands to market their pre-rolls for effects rather than highlighting strain names.  Choose your preroll from Create, Calm, Charge, Connect, or Cruise.

Best Infused Pre-roll

Ganja gold tarantula

One of the first infused prerolls in California, Tarantula was the first keif-dipped joint on the market.  There are those who wonder if kief-on-the-outside is actually getting you high...we maintain it doesnt really matter.  By the amount of copy cat products on the market, seems like the smokers have spoken.  The Tarantula and the 2g King Tarantula are perennial favorites for Cali smokers into their pre-twaxed joints.


If you're looking for brand who's products feature the taste and essence of Hash, give Biscotti a try.  Using European hash making techniques..in the Bay, Biscotti has become one of the most popular hash and infused pre-rolls on the market.  Cold water hash on these hot Cali days just sounds good, doesn't it?

Look no further than the patriotic colors of Mericanna.  California's cheapest preroll is also one of best pound-for-pound joints in the State.  Made from sun grown and greenhouse full flower, Mericanna half grams typically retails for between $3-$4.  Mericanna Minis, a multipack of dog-walkers using the same strains, is also the best value among mini Js.  We at bud.com love joints that can be purchased with the change between couch cushions.

Happy Daze gummies will provide an effect similar to others on the list.  However these gummies are larger by mass than the other gummies listed.  They are also made with Delta 9 THC extracted from Hemp instead of cannabis.  These two factors help classify Happy Daze gummies as a legal hemp product which allows them to be shipped directly to customers, rather than purchased at dispensaries.  Is that crazy?  Yes.  But thats the law.  These are the best gummies to order online hands down.

Best Cannabis Infused Drinks 2021

Pabst Cannabis Infused Drinks
Bud's Picks Best Edibles of 2021 - Drinks: Pabst

Beverages are the fastest growing edible category in the Country.  While most see infused drinks as a refreshing way to consume weed, especially in the summer, these drinks provide a sipping option to the many consumer deciding to quit drinking alcohol.  We see continued growth ahead for this category, and here are best liquid edibles in California:

Pabst Labs

We love to see traditional brewers entering the infused beverage market as a sign of social acceptance for cannabis.  Pabst has been brewing beer since 1844, including namesake Pabst Blue Ribbon.  And in 2021 they made their first 12 oz can of THC infused Lemon Seltzer that's a hit with fans of the brand and weed drinks.  10 mg of THC per refreshing serving.

Hi-Fi Hops

The Fist prominent beer brand to launch a cannabis beverage is Lagunitus Brewing Company, the famed Petaluma brewer.  Hi-Fi Hops is a collab between the Brewer and their north bay neighbors, vape giant AbsoluteXtracts.  Hi-FI Hops taste will never be confused with any of Lagunitas' famed ales, but it does have a refreshing hoppy bubble water taste and is available in 5 and 10 mg cans.


Taking the micro dose approach to beverages has made Cann an instant hit.  Simple idea.  Low calorie seltzer water infused with interesting flavors and a hint of THC.  Only 2 grams of THC allows folks to indulge, and have a few.  We concur.  Simple yet innovative.  And easy to drink.  Try some this summer...if Ellen DeGeneres will leave some on shelves for the rest of us!

If you are new to edibles, all these products are amazing, however please remember that edibles affect everyone differently, and tolerance to THC doesn't necessarily correlate to an individual's size or weight.  So don't be a hero, start low and go slow to ensure a great experience eating or drinking THC.
