In simple terms, a cannabis cone is a cone-shaped joint that is thin at the tip and starts straight. However, it becomes wider as you get to its base. A cannabis cone has a filter that prevents the marijuana from falling through the bottom. The filter also stops resin from clogging the end of the conical joint.
Occasionally, the term ‘cone’ is used to describe the process of smoking weed from a pipe or bong since a metallic, cone-shaped item might be used.
One of the benefits of a cannabis cone is that unlike joints, they don’t need to be rolled, as long as they are the ‘pre-rolled’ variety that is now widely available in dispensaries. Some users see a cone as a bowl big enough for a single hit. Pre-rolled cones ensure that you don’t have to worry about the issues associated with poorly rolled joints, such as a harsh taste and uneven burn.
Also, cannabis cones are ideal for individuals with muscle pains in their hands or arthritis. All patients need to do is fill the cone with the strain of their choice and enjoy the healing power of marijuana.
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 the items that weed lovers simply must try at least once in their lifetime. As it happens, the Cavi Cone is actually a brand name, as it was a product created by Caviar Gold, an L.A. based outfit.
What’s so special about a Cavi Cone? If you have ever seen this joint type available in a dispensary, you will wonder why it can cost up to $20. The reality is this: Calling a Cavi Cone a pre-rolled joint is analogous to describing a Harley Davidson as a motorcycle! It has been described as a regular joint on steroids, and high-quality versions can have a THC content of above 50%!
It provides users with a psychedelic high they won’t soon forget…or remember. At first glance, it looks like nothing more than a fancy pre-rolled joint. However, Cavi Cones contain a variety of 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. They are typically stuffed by machines or humans, and the paper at the end is twisted to keep the weed inside.
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 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. This 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. When Caviar Gold originally created its Cavi Cone, it infused the hash oil it used with natural flavors such as apple, strawberry, and raspberry. There is also a Cavi Doobie which has 20% less hash oil; it is designed for people who want something stronger than a joint but not so potent that it turns them into Jim Morrison.
There are a lot of 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 that collects at the bottom.
- Slowly and carefully sprinkle some cannabis concentrate on the rolling paper. The amount you put in depends entirely on how stoned you’re planning to get.
- 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 the tips above only result in an extra-potent joint. Rolling a cone is another process entirely, and one I am going to outline now.
- If you can afford it, purchase a joint rolling kit. It should contain a grinder, silicone mat, poker, rolling papers, crutches (rolling tips), silicone containers, and space for additional pipes, rolls, and pens.
- 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 and 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.
If you are looking for a potent psychoactive high, or need something to dull the pain, a cannabis cone beats a regular joint hands down. The unbeatable combination of flower, kief, and concentrate packs a wallop so be careful and use sensibly. If you don’t want to pay a small fortune for an authentic Cavi Cone, you can make one at home.
