Using just a little bit of moisture will make your blunt wrap easier to work with, shape, and help seal up any small tears that might occur while you’re emptying its tobacco innards. This is easily done with some saliva, but if you’re rolling this blunt for someone else, you might consider using the tip of your finger and some tap water.
Blunts are bigger than your average joint so you’ll need more weed. Typically, 1-2 grams should be enough for one blunt, but if you are using a big cigar, you may need more. Consider how many people will be in your smoking circle.
- Swisher Sweets
- Black & Mild
- Dutch Masters
- White Owl
Fill the empty tobacco wrapping with ground cannabis. For a standard size cigarillo one to two grams is plenty, though if you’re sharing your blunt, are an experienced roller, or are using a blunt wrap, you should be able to fit a fair amount more.
Now that you’ve got your blunt rolled, all that’s left is to light the end and enjoy with some friends!
- Heightened effects: the tobacco adds a buzziness and energy to your high
- Flavor and aroma: some people love the smell of a burning blunt, especially if you use a nice cigar or a flavored blunt wrap
- Portable: like joints, you can take a blunt anywhere
- Slow burn: Blunts burn slower than joints, so they last a lot longer in your smoking circle
Break down your cannabis into shake using a grinder or your hands. Using a grinder will help maintain an even burn, while using your hands is the more traditional method and is often preferred to help the blunt burn a little slower.
Any cigar or cigarillo will do, but we recommend one that isn’t completely dried out, as it’ll break easier and be harder to roll. These days you can usually find blunt wraps at any corner store, which are like one giant rolling paper made out of tobacco.
Rolling a blunt comes wit its own nuances that maintain function and tradition, so use our step-by-step guide to learn how to roll your own.
Gut the cigar. Remove all the tobacco innards to make room for your marijuana.
This is the messy part. A liberal slobber of saliva will be required. There is no choice but to give both sides of the tobacco leaf a good wet lick. It won’t taste pleasant, but it’s unavoidable. Plus, it’s worth it and you’ll soon have a tasty blunt to toke.
The biggest, most badass roll-up of them all is the classic homemade cannabis cigar. This one is for the blunt smokers. We’ll guide you through the process so you can handcraft your very own blunts. Get ready to super-size your next session with a fine blunt rolled to perfection.
To craft your very own fine “cannagar”, you need two key ingredients and a couple of tools. Obviously, you need some bud and ideally, you should break it down with a weed grinder. You’ll also need a cigar or cigarillo. And perhaps a sharp knife to cut it open with.
Of course, you can just buy a packet of blunt wraps. These are ready to roll right out of the packet and are available in a wide variety of delicious flavours. You can keep it simple and enjoy some juicy blueberry or indulge in some peanut butter and jelly if you fancy. These days, the selection is incredible and they don’t just taste great to lick, the flavour permeates every draw.
Just in case any newbies happen to be reading this blog, allow us to briefly explain what a blunt is. In ordinary decent stoner terms, a blunt is a weed-packed roll-up that differs from the average joint, because instead of a rolling paper, it’s wrapped in a hollowed-out cigar. Welcome to flavour country.
Pack that blunt. You really need at least 1g, preferably 2–3g for a nice fat blunt. Try to spread out an even, sticky green stuffing. If you want to add hash or some other gooey concentrates, you should sandwich the extract in flower for an even burn. A concentrated core is not the most efficient way to enjoy extracts, but definitely one of the tastiest.
Remember, it’s just spit holding your blunt together. So you must cook it to make sure it’s sealed shut. Carefully run the flame of a lighter over the blunt exterior. Make sure you keep the flame moving and don’t scorch the tobacco leaf. After a couple of minutes cooking, you’ve got a perfectly finished, classic blunt. Blaze up and enjoy.
First, you need to open up that cigar. If you have the touch, by all means, go for it by hand. However, for a precision split running through the centre of the cigar from end to end, a sharp pocket knife is preferred. Take care not to tear the cigar apart. Only split the top shell of tobacco leaf.
Blunts are the cannabis cigar of choice for those who prefer to roll-up, rather than dab or vape. This is your guide to rolling the perfect blunt.
