Within the cannabis community, blunts can be a bit polarizing. Some smokers are avid fans of blunts, essentially smoking nothing else, while others are turned off by the sometimes strong smells and tastes associated with the tobacco leaf wrap. Learning how to roll a perfect blunt takes practice, so if at first you don’t succeed, keep trying!
Additionally, you will need rolling papers . Rolling papers are the most important element of a blunt, since the tobacco leaf wrap is the very definition of what makes a blunt a blunt. Selecting the right tobacco wrap is at the heart of rolling blunts, as blunt aficionados tend to be very loyal to one particular brand of tobacco wrapping paper, using their brand of choice almost exclusively.
The cleanest and most precise way to break down the wrap is to use a razor blade to split the cigar or cigarillo lengthwise down the middle. You can also use your hands; just be very careful that you break apart the wrapper without tearing it all the way through or cracking it. Once you’ve opened the cigar or cigarillo, simply empty out and discard the tobacco inside the wrap.
It’s a good idea to get the wrap slightly moist, as this makes the tobacco leaf more pliable and easier to work with. You can use either water or saliva for this. Some folks lick the blunt wrap while others use a paintbrush moistened with water. Whatever you do, don’t get it sopping wet — you don’t want the entire thing to disintegrate. Just moisten the wrap enough to make it easier to handle.

Use both hands to gently rock the wrapping paper back and forth. As you engage in this motion, you should be tamping down and evening out the marijuana. This technique will begin to shape your blunt into a cylinder that is uniform in thickness. When you’ve got the right shape formed, bring one edge of the wrap up and over the marijuana, and tuck it underneath the opposite side of the wrap. At this point, the wrap should completely encase the marijuana.
As mentioned above, die-hard blunt smokers tend to define themselves by their wrap of choice. If you’re new to blunts, experiment with a handful of different brands. You might even want to test a flavored wrap. Enjoy figuring out which blunt wrap you like the best. Or, if you like a couple of different brands, feel free to switch things up according to how you’re feeling at the moment.
To roll and smoke blunts like a pro you will need a handful of key components. Obviously, you will need your cannabis strain of choice. Since you’ll have to grind your bud before rolling your blunt, it is best to also have a reliable grinder . To keep your work space tidy, a rolling tray will also come in handy.
How to Roll a Blunt What is a Blunt? A blunt is similar to a joint , in that it is essentially a marijuana cigarette. But unlike joints, the defining feature of a blunt is that it is wrapped
As you can see, it requires quite a few items to roll a slow-burning blunt. If you are rolling in advance, make sure you protect your blunt because they can break easily in transit. We recommended storing your blunt and rolling supplies in a discreet smell-proof case between smokes to avoid any awkward moments with family or friends.
The first step is to prepare the cigar for rolling. In order to hollow out the cigar, you will need to split it open. This is typically done using your fingers or a blade (there are blunt splitters expressly made for this purpose); we will demonstrate both methods. Note: If you are using a blunt wrap, this step will not apply as the tobacco leaf is not filled with tobacco.
Now you should have an empty tobacco leaf rolling paper that is ready to be filled with cannabis.
Make sure you have all the key smoking accessories for rolling great blunts: grinder, wrap, cannabis or organic hemp flower, and a lighter at the bare minimum — and a rolling tray wouldn’t hurt, either. The following steps will require the above items if you want to improve your smoking experience.
A blunt is, quite simply, a cannabis cigar. The term originated from the Phillies Blunt brand cigars, but has since been used to refer to any inexpensive cigar or cigarillo that is hollowed-out and then re-rolled using ground cannabis in place of the tobacco. Some companies even sell blunt wraps, which do not have any tobacco inside and are sold ready to be re-rolled.
If the tobacco leaf is still dry, you can give it a lick so it becomes more pliable or, preferably, press it in a dampened paper towel for a few seconds at a time until it revives a bit. More moisture in the wrap will make for easier rolling.
If you prefer to start in the middle, lay down about the middle third and then work your way outward toward each end.
You’ve likely had a cannabis blunt at some point, but did you know you can also consume CBD in this classic style? Organic hemp flower offers all the benefits of CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids, as well as helpful terpenes and flavonoids, that can help alleviate chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, and other symptoms. For an extra boost, you can also twax your blunt with CBD oil or isolate for intensive symptom relief.
Regardless of the method you choose, the important part is removing all of the tobacco from the cigar (unless you’re rolling a spliff — not our style, but to each their own).
You may be familiar with how to roll a joint, but do you know how to roll a blunt? The process of rolling a blunt is very similar to rolling a joint: you will s
