PRESIDENTIAL HASH JOINT VS CAVI CONE | The California Weed Blog
As much as I don’t like the joints clubs give you for free. I always enjoy a good gourmet pre-roll. I’ve started seeing these Presidential pre-rolls come out getting some good shelf space at local dispensaries. I was intrigued enough by their claim of 800mg of THC and 0.5g of hash I decided to put them up against the heavyweight of the industry, Cavi Cone. Read on to see how this newcomer fared against a long time California medical cannabis staple.
CAVI CONE and PRESIDENTIAL PRICING
Price: Both products retail for $15. Since the Cavi Cone is a more well known brand, clubs are more likely to offer specials and I usually come across Cavi’s on sale for 2/25 a couple of times a week. I haven’t really encountered a deal on the presidential, except when they hosted a patient appreciation day at my local clinic and I scored a free one. (Although their driver was late to deliver the samples)
Winner: Tie (no winner on everyday value as it’s not always possible to find special deals)
Flavor: I chose Piña Colada for the presidential roll and strawberry for the cavi cone. I am going to immediately deduct taste points from Presidential for tasting like sunscreen. The quality of the bud and comparative flavor selection were sub par. As for the Cavi Cone, the only flavor I don’t love is plain. My favorite is strawberry, which just beats out their delicious and succulent raspberry. Look out at select clubs for their secret pumpkin flavor if you can find it though.
Winner: Cavi Cone
Potency: Even with its claim of high THC content, the presidential once again fell short of the Cavi Cone. I’m a high tolerance patient and still find myself not needing to smoke an entire Cavi Cone in one sitting. I feel as though smoking the entire Presidential roll left me pretty unsatisfied, with a little buzz, from what is supposed to a premium product.
Winner: Cavi Cone
Conclusion: After a tie on price, it is the Cavi Cones quality that made it quickly jump ahead of Presidential. Cavi Cones are deemed the obvious victor in this comparison and maybe the go-to joint in the gourmet pre-roll market. Cavi offered superior potency, delicious taste and better overall value. As for the Presidential, I’d say they need a bit of work. I’d suggest switching to a sweeter hash, or maybe add a sprinkle of Kief in order to increase your potency. Hey Cavi Cone, don’t change a thing except for letting us know where the pumpkin favor is!
