Not all joint rolling machines are created equal! Some twist the tops, others fold them. Some offer different sizes, a tamper, or build in check-weigh system. Others have an accuracy of .01g and can work continuously as long as it's supplied with enough ground cannabis. One of them sucks!

The convenience of pre-rolled ready-to-smoke joints is so irresistible to many cannabis consumers that pre-roll sales grew 59% last year, from $704 million in 2019 to $1.12 billion in 2020.

The growth in pre-roll sales even outpaced the already explosive cannabis market, which grew by only 54.2% over the same period.

According to a survey, the top pre-roll product has been "Hybrid - Single Strain" every year since Headset began tracking sales data. However, a segment to watch is pre-rolls infused with cannabis concentrates, which have risen from 12.7% of all pre-roll sales in 2018 to 31.9% of all pre-roll sales in 2021 so far.

Another trend is that consumers are buying multi-pack products rather than single pre-rolls. Sales of multipack pre-rolls grew by 69.4% from February 2020 to February 2021, while single pre-roll sales only grew by 18.1% over the same time period, according to the survey.

Episode 752 looks at 15 different machines that make joints, pre-rolls and blunts for the hemp and cannabis industry. These machines are for commercial use and most on the list are fully automated with a price tag of as much as $400,000, but can spit out as many as 60 per minute:
