Rolling the Perfect Blunt: A Simple 6-Step Guide

Bluntness is hip. There is no question in my mind. However, let’s say you’ve never rolled one before. In that situation, it could appear intimidating. But don’t worry, my stoner friends, because we’ve got you covered with this easy-to-follow six-step instruction to everything you need to know about rolling blunts. So let’s get you schooled while those rolling fingers warm up.

Obtaining and enjoying a joint, spliff, or blunt typically necessitates legal access to marijuana, which can be acquired through the possession of a medical marijuana card. Securing a medical marijuana card is a straightforward process, as you can either apply for it online or consult with certified 420 doctors who can facilitate your legal access to medical marijuana.

Many frequent cannabis consumers favor blunts. This is true for a variety of reasons, including the fact that blunts carry more marijuana and burn more evenly and slowly. But if you’ve never smoked a blunt before, it could be scary to try to roll one—especially a nice one. After all, it’s not exactly the same as rolling a joint or spliff.

You won’t be rolling them up with the greatest if you just give it some time, practice, and the right counsel. Here is our tutorial on how to roll a traditional blunt. 

What Is a Blunt?

A blunt is a cannabis flower that has been wrapped in a tobacco leaf. Tobacco energizes and buzzes the effects of cannabis. Blunt wraps are typically sold in bundles of 1-2 in stores that also sell rolling papers. Frequently, they are flavored. Another option is to split open a cigar or cigarillo, take out the tobacco, then use the remaining wrapping to make a blunt. 

Joints are smaller than blunts and don’t last as long. Joints are formed with rolling paper (such as those made from hemp fiber), while not containing tobacco. Despite this, both blunts and joints are totally constructed of cannabis flower for the roll-up.

Is Smoking a Blunt More Intense Than a Joint?

The only flavor in joints should come from the marijuana they contain if the appropriate rolling papers are utilized. Blunts, on the other hand, do have a harsher flavor and smoke, primarily because they are made with a thicker, tobacco-infused wrap. The flavors of tobacco and nicotine are stronger by nature. The majority of blunt wraps that you can purchase are also flavored, which may intensify the flavor.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Smoking Blunts

While some cannabis users prefer to save blunts for special occasions, others only smoke them occasionally. In any event, it is beneficial to be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of this cannabis consumption technique. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of blunt use.

Advantages:

  • Slow-burning
  • Tobacco adds a buzzy, energetic feel
  • Great for sharing in larger groups
  • Different flavors of wraps are available.

Disadvantages: 

  • Smoking tobacco is harmful to health
  • Potentially harsher smoke
  • Tobacco and extra flavors can change the taste of the strain
  • Learning to roll one takes time

Mastering the Art of Crafting a Classic Blunt

Simply because rolling a blunt is a challenging talent to perfect, it is one of the main reasons why people avoid smoking them. But there’s no need to worry. Here is a tutorial on how to roll your first blunt (of hopefully many).

 

Rolling a conventional blunt just requires a few essential items of equipment. Nothing too complicated or pricey.

 

  • Cannabis flower
  • Grinder
  • Cigar, cigarillo, or blunt wrap
  • Craft knife/razor blade

Instructions

Once you have everything you require, you can begin the procedure. Be aware that getting it properly could need numerous tries, but that’s all part of the learning process.

 

  • Select Your Wrap

Don’t use an old cigar or cigarillo if you decide to smoke one because they have a tendency to dry out quite a bit. As a result, when you roll, they are more likely to fracture and break. Blunt wrappers are available anywhere you purchase rolling papers. You have the option of purchasing flavors or basic types.

 

  • Prep Your Weed

You have two options for flower preparation. You may grind it up, which will help you have a constant burn. As an alternative, you can use the tried-and-true approach of manually separating the blossom. By doing this, a slower burn can be achieved.

 

If you use particular blunt wraps, these are already pre-rolled out of the container. Before using any cigars or cigarillos, they must first be empty. With a sharp craft knife or razor, trim the wrap. You can leave after emptying the tobacco.

 

  • Moisten your wrap

The blunt wrap will be more flexible and simple to roll if it is slightly damp. Additionally, when cutting or emptying a cigar or cigarillo wrap, the moisture might aid to seal any incredibly tiny cracks that might develop. If you’re rolling a blunt for yourself, you can use saliva. If it is to be shared, however, soaking your finger in some water and using it instead is much more hygienic and considerate.

 

  • Fill Your Wrap

Put your flower inside the blunt wrapper. It usually takes 1 to 2 grams to make a blunt the size of a cigar, which is more than a joint. If you’re using a large cigar’s wrapper, you’ll likely need to add more.

 

  • Roll Your Blunt

The tough part is about to begin: rolling. Everything is improved with practice. Don’t give up if your initial attempts don’t work. The thicker wrap may make rolling blunts challenging even for seasoned joint rollers.

Roll the open wrap starting with your fingers and thumb to evenly load the blunt and slightly compress the cannabis to create the perfect shape. Once more, quickly and easily fold the wrap inside itself. Moisten the inside edge of the folded area. Continue rolling and smoothing with your fingertips until the blunt is entirely shut and the marijuana is encased.

 

  • Bake and smoke it

After rolling your blunt, ignite the seam with a lighter. It will be less likely to crumble because it will burn more evenly and be sealed, or “baked,” as the term implies. Be careful not to hold the flame too near to avoid burning the wrap.

Your blunt is now ready, that’s all! Enjoy.

Rolling a Blunt Using a Cannabis Fan Leaf

Let’s say you don’t enjoy smoking. Fortunately, “cannagars” and other blunt types that incorporate a cannabis leaf as a wrapper are still available. At most, the leaves will contain trace amounts of THC, but they do improve the flavor and look.

You’ll need to find some cannabis leaves to get started. Due to their larger shape, indica strain leaves typically perform the best. If you don’t have access to leaves, blunt paper made of hemp works just as well. You’ll also require some glue, such as sticky concentrate or hash oil.

You should use semi-fresh fan leaves that have been allowed to dry for a week to roll your blunt. Fresh leaves are too wet and rough on the throat to burn effectively, while extremely dried leaves will disintegrate.

Use a handful of your largest fan leaves to keep them flat while they dry out by placing them in a book.

Once dry, remove the two largest fingers closest to the stem from a fan leaf.

Put the marijuana inside the smaller of the two leaf fingers and roll it up like a standard blunt. Apply a thin layer of hash oil to the edges to serve as an adhesive, then tightly seal. Consider the location of the adhesive on a roll of paper. If the wrap is not extremely tight, don’t worry. It’s essential that the marijuana is kept in check.

Take the other leaf finger, and use your concentration glue to coat the interior. Now tightly roll this leaf finger in a spiral pattern over the cannagar’s top. If more oil or concentrate is required, use it to help it adhere.

Before smoking the blunt, give it time to dry out. The length of time required depends on how much “glue” you used and what it was made of. When dry, start smoking!

Are Blunts the Ideal Option?

Since it all comes down to human preference, there isn’t an honest, straightforward solution. Some individuals prefer one over the other in the dispute over joints vs. blunts, but many people use them whenever and however they like. But due to their size, joints are typically preferred for solo smoking or sharing between two persons.

On the other hand, a blunt’s slow burn makes it more suitable for gatherings of many people. The amount of money you have to spend also influences your choice because joints are far more cost-effective if you smoke a lot but are on a tight budget compared to blunts, which utilize one or more grams at a time. There is only one way to find out if you are still doubtful. Give it a try! Before partaking in it, it’s important to note that smoking a joint or spliff typically necessitates possession of a medical marijuana card. You can obtain this card by reaching out to a marijuana doctor. If you prefer to avoid in-person appointments, you also have the option to apply for your MMJ card online
