What is a blunt?
A blunt is a cigar with tobacco removed and replaced with marijuana. These are also rolled up in tobacco leaf wrappers.
Many people like to mix it with cannabis for added buzz, while others appreciate the variety of flavors that comes with blunt wraps and cigarillos.
Rolling blunt has its own set of issues vs. rolling a joint. This guide will help you to learn the proper way to roll a blunt.
materials for rolling a blunt
- Cannabis strain of choice
- Cigar, blunt wrap, or cigarillo
- Weed grinder and razor blade
Any cigar or cigarillo will do, but one that isn’t completely dried out, as it is easier to break and harder to roll. You can easily find blunt wraps at any store.
How to roll a blunt?
Grind your cannabis
Using our hands or shaking in a grinder, break down the cannabis. Grinder helps in maintaining an even burn. Breaking with hands is an age-old method and slows down the blunt burn.
Prep the blunt wrap
You will need a tobacco wrap to properly roll the blunt. You can easily find empty wraps these days at the corner store.
Cut it lengthwise using a blade, or you can crack using your fingers if you have got the right touch. After spitting the blunt, start filling tobacco from the middle and save reaming for later.
Wet the tobacco wrap
Use a little moisture to make the blunt wrap easy to work with and seal small tears that occur while emptying the tobacco innards. You can easily do this with your saliva. However, when rolling it for someone else, use water and apply with your fingertips.
Fill it up
Fill the empty wrap with grounded cannabis. 1-2 grams of cannabis is enough for a standard-size cigarillo. However, if you’re sharing blunt or are an experienced roller, you will be able to fit the right amount better.
Roll the blunt wrap
Roll cannabis between your fingers to evenly pack the blunt. Remember, if you do not moisturize the warp, it can crack. Once the blunt wrap is packed and properly shaped, tuck it under itself and moisten the inner exposed edge from one end to another. Smoothen out any wrinkle using your fingers.
Bake the blunt and enjoy!
Now that you have rolled the blunt, bake it, or you can dry to seal it together. This will ensure an even burn. You can use a lighter to bake the blunt lengthwise under the seal area and around the outer part.
Do not hold the lighter too close because you only want heat and not the direct flame.
Difference between spliffs, blunt, and a joint
Joints are the simplest of all in the bunch. These are simply grounded marijuana which is rolled up in cigarette papers. People sometimes also roll them using a crutch which is basically a stiffer paper that can hold weed in place.
What to know
Unlike blunts and spliffs that contain tobacco, joints are plain cannabis and the paper which is used to roll it in. The benefit of smoking joints is that you do not expose yourself to nicotine or tobacco.
A spliff is a mixture of tobacco and cannabis that is rolled in cigarette papers.
Spliff is a West Indian word that means split, which refers to the split between tobacco and weed.
Whiff refers to the smell of smoke or how adding tobacco covers the pot smell.
What to know
Adding tobacco means you will be using less pot, and some people think it is good for your health, but that is not the case.
Both tobacco and marijuana smoking damages the lungs and increases the risk for several health conditions. Adding tobacco to marijuana means you are doubling the damaging effects of tobacco.
Advantages of smoking a blunt:
People either hate or love blunts; there is no in-between. The main problem against blunt is the tobacco content which can be a little harsh smoke.
People like to smoke blunts for these reasons:
- Heightened effects: tobacco increases the energy and buzziness to your high.
- Flavor and aroma: people love to smell burning tobacco, especially when using a flavored blunt wrap or a nice cigar.
- Portable: similar to joints, carrying blunt with you anywhere is very easy
- Slow burn: The blunt burn is slower, which means they last longer when you smoke in a circle.
We hope this step-by-step guide on how to roll a blunt is helpful to you. When it comes to rolled cannabis blunts, joints and spliffs are the main players. Each of them shares their own set of differences and comes with negative impacts of smoking.
Make sure to use products bought from a licensed dispensary and avoid overdosing.
