Pre-Rolled Cone Sizes for Every Type of Pre-Roll
Posted by Custom Cones USA on May 18th 2023
Pre-rolls are the most customizable product in the cannabis space, which means you will have a lot of choices when it comes to the size of the pre-rolls you want to create. The size of your pre-rolls is going to determine how much cannabis flower you will put into each pre-roll, the size of your packaging, as well as the pre-roll making machinery you can use to produce them.
The particle size and density of the flower material is also going to play a major factor in the size of your pre-rolled cones. Even with a consistent particle size, fluffy cannabis will take up more space in a cone than a dense bud. The tobacco industry refers to this metric as “filling power.” In other words, fluffy material will have more filling power than dense nugs because it takes up more space.
Filling power is particularly important to understand when you are using automated machinery, as the twisting/folding station is set by height. If the flower is too dense, it won't fill up enough space, and the twisting/folding mechanism won’t be able to reach down far enough to close the pre-rolled cone. This means that, if you are using automated machinery, some cultivars just won’t work with the machine.
It’s clear there is a lot to think about when picking out a pre-rolled cone for your pre-roll project. Below you will find a helpful chart and a list of questions that are designed to help you find the perfect cone or tube for your pre-roll project, and, as always, our Pre-Roll Experts are here to help answer questions you might have along the way.
