A cannabis cone is a cone-shaped joint that is thin at the tip and wider as at the base. It has a filter that prevents marijuana from falling through the bottom and stops resin from clogging the end of the joint.
Occasionally, the term ‘cone’ is used to describe the process of smoking weed from a pipe or bong. The reason for this is cannabis consumers sometimes use a metallic, cone-shaped item.
Pre-rolled cones ensure that you don’t have to worry about the issues associated with poorly rolled joints.
One of the benefits of a cannabis cone is that, unlike joints, they don’t need to be rolled. That is, as long as they are the ‘pre-rolled’ variety widely available in dispensaries. Pre-rolled cones ensure that you don’t have to worry about the issues associated with poorly rolled joints – the main ones being a harsh taste and an uneven burn.
For unfilled varieties, patients fill the cone manually with marijuana. Then they simply wait for the effects to address the symptoms of their condition. Some users see a cone as a bowl big enough for a single hit.
Also, cannabis cones are ideal for individuals with muscle pains in their hands or arthritis.
The Revered Cavi Cone
In the cannabis community, there are several things that people hold dear. Moon rocks, Thai sticks, and Cavi Cones are among these. Cavi Cone is a brand name, as it is a product created by Caviar Gold, an L.A.-based outfit.
What’s so special about a Cavi Cone, and why does it cost up to $20 in a dispensary. Well, calling a Cavi Cone a pre-rolled joint is similar to describing a Harley Davidson as a motorcycle! Cannaseurs describe a Cavi Cone as a regular joint on steroids. Reportedly, a high-quality version can have a THC content of above 50%!
At first glance, it looks like nothing more than a fancy pre-rolled joint. However, Cavi Cones contain various ingredients that set them apart. When they are pre-rolled, they are normally made from materials such as paper derived from hemp and palm leaves.
As for the ingredients, we begin with potent, high-quality marijuana. The type of weed depends on the effect you are seeking. For example, a sativa-dominant hybrid is ideal if you need something to give you a little boost. Above all, the marijuana must be a premium-grade flower; no dregs, no stems, and no seeds.
A marijuana concentrate is added to the cannabis cone to provide it with an extra kick. You can add wax, butane hash oil, or crumble, for example. The third and usually final ingredient in a genuine Cavi Cone is kief. Kief is the powdery substance left over once you have ground your weed in a three-chamber grinder.
You can also add flavors such as grape, berry, and vanilla. Caviar Gold’s original Cavi Cone infuses the hash oil with natural flavors such as apple, strawberry, and raspberry.
There is also a Cavi Doobie product that has 20% less hash oil. A Cavi Doobie is for people who want something more potent than a joint but not as strong as a Cavi Cone.
There are many cannabis cones on the market, most of which are poor impersonators of the original Cavi Cone. While Caviar Gold created a masterpiece, other companies have put a lot less effort into their cones. We have heard of some sellers using regs weed, for instance.
If you see a Cavi Cone and want to buy one, open it up to see what’s inside. A true Cavi Cone normally has a yellowish/gold color. If the insides are green, it is probably a lot of bud with stems and minimal concentrate.
Making Your Own Cannabis Cone
Real Cavi Cones are expensive and not always easy to find. In that case, you have the option to go DIY. All you need is a large rolling paper, kief, weed concentrate, and a high-quality marijuana strain. Here is a quick step-by-step guide:
- Make sure you spread your large rolling paper on a surface that is flat, dry, and clean.
- Put your marijuana flower through a three-chamber grinder. Collect the kief at the bottom.
- Slowly and carefully sprinkle some cannabis concentrate on the rolling paper. The amount you put in depends entirely on how potent you want the Cavi Cone to be.
- Add in some kief and fill the rest of the paper with the ground-up flower.
- Roll up the paper and twist it to close.
You can also create a strong cone by adding moon rock cannabis. Some users even soak the rolling paper in concentrate and add the bud and kief! However, you will note that these tips result in an extra-potent joint. Rolling a cone is another process entirely, and one we’ll outline next.
How to Roll a Cannabis Cone
- If you can afford it, purchase a joint rolling kit. It should contain the following:
- Silicone mat
- Rolling papers
- Crutches (rolling tips)
- Silicone containers
- Space for additional pipes
- Get a large rolling paper and insert a rolling tip at the end of the joint you will be holding. A tip helps establish your cone’s shape and size. It also provides a stable area to hold the cone while you arrange the ingredients.
- Arrange the bud, concentrate, and kief in a conical shape in the paper. It should be thinner close to the rolling tip and wider towards the end of the joint.
- Roll the bud using the paper. Move the paper back and forth between your fingers and shape it into a cone. The sticky concentrate and kief should help keep the bud in shape. If the bud doesn’t hold the cone shape by itself, you must continue to roll, compress, and shape until it does. Once you have the cone shape, roll the paper between your fingers and angle the joint to facilitate the conical shape.
- Roll the joint tightly to ensure a smoother and slower burn. Once the joint is almost rolled, lick the glue strip and stick it down.
- A small part of the rolling tip will be sticking out; push it in towards the rolled bud to seal the gap.
- The final step involves packing the cone and twisting it off. Use the poker that comes with your joint rolling kit and twist the end to keep the bud inside. Congratulations! You have rolled a Cavi Cone of your own.
