Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
We’re not sure if it’s the hemp strain (called Wife, which is perhaps a play on the popular cannabis Widow family), the palm wrap, or a combination of the two, but this product smells a lot like fresh, loose-leaf green tea. It’s got a light sweetness that tempers the bright, tangy, herbal notes. There’s a subtle note of citrus, but it isn’t overwhelming at all. We have high hopes for the smokability of this chunky little pre-roll.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
When smoked, the spicy notes of the Wife top-shelf hemp come through the unflavored palm wrap beautifully. There’s a little bit of the green tea flavor we noticed when we opened the package that mingles well with subtle earthy notes, but most of what comes through is a rather spritely taste, somewhere between orange zest and the flavor of fresh rosemary.
The palm wrap makes for a smooth, delicious smoke that allows the flavor of the hemp to really shine through uninhibited. Even if you aren’t fond of blunts (sometimes the flavor of traditional blunt wraps can be intense), you’ll probably like this one. We have a feeling that, while Wife is delightful, just about any hemp flower strain would smoke at its best in one of these palm wraps.
The hemp roll is a little under four inches in length and just under half an inch in diameter. It’s a medium-deep olive green in color, with a natural filter and a thin ribbon of black paper where the filter begins to prevent burning the roll down too far. The hemp material is a frosty green in color and finely broken up for smooth burning. According to Canna Comforts, the buds from this harvest of Wife came out too small to be sold as whole hemp flower, but their cannabinoid profile made them ideal for these pre-rolls.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
The effects of the hemp roll come on quickly since it’s an inhaled product, peaking at about 30 minutes after consumption. We felt relief from pain and anxiety, full-body relaxation, and a general sense of well-being. The effects are pronounced and lasted about four to five hours for us, relieving persistent pain and alleviating muscle tension, anxiety, and stress.
We’d like to note that we smoked this palm wrap during a time of pretty intense stress (about an 8.5 on a 1-10 scale) and, while it didn’t get rid of our looming deadlines, it did make us feel considerably better about them. Post-hemp roll, we’d put our anxiety at about a 3, likely due to the high dose of CBD within the product.
Best used for
Since there is so much CBD in this product, we think it’s best for people who need powerful, fast-acting symptom relief. If your symptoms are intense or come on quickly and strongly, this product may be a good option for you. It allows you to ingest high doses of CBD in a short time, without added compounds or flavorings. In terms of natural CBD products, this is one of the best we’ve encountered to date.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
This is an excellent systemic product that can alleviate a broad range of symptoms in a short time frame. That said, if you are looking to boost the effectiveness of your CBD regimen, we recommend the Pain Cream (shown in image) from Canna Comforts. It contains 250 mg of CBD per ounce and can help provide relief from pain and inflammation at the surface while your systemic dose of CBD works from within to soothe your symptoms.
The hemp roll contains 1 gram of Wife hemp flower, which is 17% CBD according to Canna Comforts. This works out to about 170 mg of CBD per hemp roll, a hefty dose by most standards. At $7 each, this works out to about $0.04 per milligram, making these pre-rolls an absolute steal in terms of cannabinoid bang for your buck.
As far as top-shelf, organic hemp flower is concerned, Canna Comforts is by far our favorite source. They pass our CBD Buyer’s Guide test for quality, purity, and potency, and we’ve had great results with their products. These palm wrap hemp rolls are a cost-effective way to incorporate a potent dose of full-spectrum cannabinoids into your CBD regimen and provide powerful, fast-acting symptom relief.
