11 May What is a Cannagar?
What is a Cannagar? Cannagars look like cigars, but there is one main difference! Cannagars are packed with cannabis or hemp, instead of being rolled with tobacco. A cannagar is the smoothest way to smoke a whole bunch of either cannabis or hemp in one beautifully rolled masterpiece.
What is a Cannagar?
A Cannagar is a cigar made by compressing either cannabis, or hemp, around a skewer. Then rolling it with cannabis, or hemp, fan leaves. By compressing the cannabis flower, or hemp flower, around a skewer you create a slow burning and full-flavored roll that lasts for hours.
At the end of the day, the cannagar is the ultimate smoke. I mean, this isn’t your average preroll. However, this process did not start with just your average prerolls. The original cannagar was called Thai Stick.
What is a Thai Stick?
Thai sticks were popular back in the 1970s. They were made by tying hemp rope tightly around cannabis on a skewer, then dipped in opium (I know I know), and then letting it cure for months. The result is a cannagar that is not wrapped in hemp leaves.
The Thai stick trend is coming back. Fortunately, it is coming back without the opium! Because the flower is so compressed, it leads to an elevated smoking experience that lasts forever but is still easy to draw due to the hole left behind by the skewer.
Cannagars Vs. Thai Sticks
So, what is the difference between a canngar and a Thai stick? The term “cannagar” is fairly new term so there is a great deal of confusion as to its definition. Both Thai sticks and cannagars require dried flowers, from either the cannabis and hemp plant, to be compressed on a skewer. What separates the two is the wrapper.
Same Shit Different Wrapper
Cannagars are wrapped in hemp or cannabis fan leaves while Thai sticks are rolled in anything, or sometimes nothing at all! When wrapped in dried hemp leaves, the cannagar takes on a more traditional cigar aesthetic, although a bit greener than a normal cigar. There is a new, and awesome, trend of wrapping your cannagar in dried rose petal leaves. The dried rose petals provide that cannagar with a sweet and unique flavor, and the cannagar is beautiful bright red color!

How Long Do Cannagars Last?
Asking a question like this is kinda like asking how long a light bulb lasts. The answer is: It depends! We carry a couple of different kinds and sizes of cannagars at Chillum Dispensary, and they advertise that their product lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours. Our customers are constantly telling us that it lasts them over the course of a couple of days since its too much to smoke in one sitting.
Can I Buy a Pre-Made Cannagar?
Of course, you can! Problem is cannabis is illegal in most states. If you live in a state that has legalized adult use cannabis you might be able to find a cannagar made with real cannabis at a dispensary or you can buy a mold and make your own with legal cannabis flower.
Hemp is legal in all 50 states and you can purchase a cannagar made with hemp on our website. Our cannagars are made with hemp flower which contains less than .3% Delta 9 THC. That does not mean our cannagars won’t get you stoned. Our cannagars are made with Delta-8 THC which is a legal form of Delta-9 THC, found in cannabis. Delta-8 THC still gets you stoned but many people consider the euphoric felling provided by Delta-8 to be a bit more mellow than the high provided by Delta-9 cannabis. Plus, it is legal in all 50 states and can be less expensive than buying cannabis at a medical dispensary.
So even though you can’t buy cannagars made from weed in all 50 states you can still buy cannagars made from hemp! These hemp cannagars are legal in all 50 states and can still provide the euphoric effects that cannagars made from cannabis can provide.
