Are there any benefits from using a trademark before registering it?

Yes. Using unregistered marks for goods/services is approved by the law. In U.S., the first to use a mark or the first to file for registration, whichever is earlier, is the authorized and legal owner of the trademark. More so, common law rights are acquired through use of a mark. Notice thought that some products that are related to cigarettes and drugs are regulated before they are made available in the market.
