The end of 2020 marked an increase in interest in small pre-rolls. Indeed, the formats of 0.25g and 0.35g are more and more popular among consumers. Most of the pre-rolls offered are 0.7 to 1g, which is not working for the new consumption habits.
The pandemic is changing everything, users tend to be alone and therefore want smaller quantities. Larger pre-rolls take longer to smoke and may be too potent for occasional smokers who can no longer share their cannabis when consuming.
The increase in supply cannot be explained only by growing demand. First, companies are increasingly able to automate their production of pre-rolls. In the past, the production costs of each product were very high, since everything was done by hand or semi-automatic. The new automation solutions allow companies to save a lot in production costs and by the same token, to be able to easily produce pre-rolls from 0.25 to 0.35g.
Second, the price of wholesale marijuana was going down for the last years, but it has recently going back up. The price of wholesale cannabis going up can be a good reason for producers to make smaller pre-rolls.
Our machine, the PreRoll-Er, can produce pre-rolls of 0.25 to 2g, which perfectly meets this new trend. Thanks to the extreme precision of the PreRoll-Er, the production of mini pre-rolls is easy and efficient.
