I always think pre-rolls are overpriced. At $12 for two joints equalling 1 gram altogether, I feel either Artizen, Cannabis & Glass, or the State of Washington could have eaten into margins somewhere to make pricing more reasonable.
Still, there’s a lot I like about the Artizen Jack Herer Pre-Roll 2-Pack — starting with the fact that the gram within is divided into two joints. I just smoked a great Gary Payton pre-roll from Cookies, and one of my few quibbles was that this 1g package was concentrated into a single pre-roll.
Artizen quality is questionable when it comes to vapes, but this brand seems to shine in the flower arena. I haven’t tried any of their buds yet, but my experience with Artizen’s Jack Herer pre-rolls has made me rethink the assessment I made after trying the Olympia-area producer’s Breathwork vape cartridge.
Compared to flower, pre-rolls are much more convenient. Personally, I like the technological sophistication and instant, flameless results of a good vape cartridge, but it’s undeniably fun to smoke a pre-roll from time to time.
If you’re an ex-tobacco user like me, then you know the psychological craving to light up a smoke. At 0.5g each, Artizen’s Jack Herer pre-rolls almost perfectly match the size and shape of an average cigarette.
With professional THC pre-rolls from brands like Artizen, you can enjoy all the glamor of smoking without the negatives of nicotine. Now, if only I were a little more confident about Artizen’s commitment to sustainability and safety…
To my palate, Jack Herer is one of the most delicious strains. The undeniable weirdness of terpinolene blends with the common sativa terpenes limonene and myrcene to deliver a cannabis flavor experience unlike any other.
I think Artizen pulls off Jack Herer quite nicely. This strain tastes the way it should, and I didn’t notice any odd flavors or signs of a bad cure. The pre-rolls seemed perfectly moist, and they burned evenly.
That’s some potent Jack Herer. The effects came on fast, and I was honestly glad my joint was only half a gram.
Jack Herer can make you feel kind of loopy with its mix of sativa giddiness and almost couch-lockish sedativity. I enjoyed my Jack trip for a solid 1:15.
To me, everything from Artizen seems a little bit overpriced due to my overall skepticism toward this brand’s quality pledge. I don’t understand why Artizen can’t just be upfront with its policies on pesticides. Why even bring the issue up if you’re just going to make things confusing?
So, I can’t exactly say the price of my Artizen Jack Herer 0.5g Pre-Roll 2-Pack was worth it. That’s my one notable caveat within an otherwise unblemished assessment.
There are some things about Artizen I like.
For instance, this producer dedicates entire pages of reasonably well-written text to the strains it produces. Artizen’s website is overall much more informative and user-friendly than most cannabis sites I’ve seen — in WA or otherwise.
There are some things about Artizen, however, that I don’t like.
For instance, this super-weird and grammatically incorrect sentence found on Artizen’s extremely odd page about pesticide use in cannabis:
“We want to be transparent and not hide behind a ‘pesticide-free’ label. All the products we have are approved by the Washington State Department of Agriculture for use on our cannabis. Only safe, ethical, and only used as needed products are used—ever.”
Huh? What does that even mean? Rather than hiding behind a “pesticide-free label,” (whatever that means), Artizen hides behind the Washington State Department of Agriculture, which is suddenly supposed to be invested with absolute trust in all matters regarding safe pesticide use.
Something doesn’t add up. All the same, it’s clear Artizen cares. Now, it’s just a matter of putting that care to work in the right places by becoming more articulate and explaining straight-up whether you use pesticides on your plants.
This is a great pre-roll package for anyone who likes mid-to-high-grade weed sold for reasonable prices. Sure, I have my questions about Artizen, but there’s no doubt this brand’s take on Jack Herer is extremely dank, and splitting a gram into two pre-rolls fits my personal sensibilities perfectly — I’ve got better things to whip out than a joint if I want to impress.
Artizen makes it easy for you: Smoke one joint now, smoke the other later.
Seriously, there’s no point trying to save a half-gram joint after you light it. If you can’t stomach the idea of smoking a whole 0.5g joint, find a puffing buddy.
I think you’ll find however, that Artizen’s Jack Herer joints are the perfect size for a single session.
What else would you like to know about these popular Washington THC pre-rolls?
Jack Herer is best known by its high concentrations of terpinolene, a relatively rare terpene with a very strong flavor and aroma. Like most terpenes, terpinolene has been researched for its antioxidant properties — and, by the way, terpenes are much more potent (and volatile) than cannabinoids, so even tiny concentrations can elicit profound effects.
Oxidative stress is directly tied to pain, diabetes, heart disease, and tons of other conditions. Any substance that reduces oxidative stress in your body is bound to improve your health. The terpenes and cannabinoids in Jack Herer might even alleviate your conditions.
Typically, Jack Herer contains less than 1% CBD, and it is not considered a high-CBD strain. CBD concentrations vary depending on the grower and the production methods used, but don’t smoke Jack Herer expecting to feel the effects of CBD.
Artizen is one of the best-regarded producers in the Washington cannabis market, but my experience with this brand has been iffy. These Jack Herer pre-rolls, however, hit all my qualifiers and delivered excellent effects I’d recommend to any fan of this legendary, historic strain.
Before the committee gets their hands on the product and formally rates it, the BestDosage team scrapes the product packaging, scours the internet, and occasionally calls the brand directly to hunt down the most accurate information about each product.
