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!
Finally, use a lighter and run the flame up and down along the seam. This dries out the tobacco and locks the seam into place so the blunt doesn’t fall apart when you’re smoking it.

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.
The best way to grind your weed is with a grinder. This tool gives you the most consistent grind, which translates into a smoother, more even burn. If you don’t have a grinder, carefully break apart your weed with your fingers. Shoot for picking it apart into small pieces that are more or less the same size. As you go, be as delicate as you can to minimize damage to the cannabinoid-rich trichomes .

- Taste and Smell – Many blunt fans enjoy the added tastes and smells that come from the tobacco leaf wrap. Aficionados often like mixing and matching wraps with different strains. Some blunt smokers also like experimenting with flavored blunt wrappers, introducing even more complexity to the taste and scent profiles of their smoking experience.
- Slow Burn – Blunts tend to burn a bit longer than standard joints, giving smokers an experience more akin to slowly puffing on a cigar or cigarillo.
- Versatility – Compared to other, less mobile smoking methods, such as a bong or dabbing, blunts are incredibly versatile. You can easily and quickly roll one up anytime and anywhere, and they’re equally effective for solo and social smoking.
- Effects – The tobacco leaf wrap introduces a new and often heightened sensation of feeling high. In fact, it’s fairly common for first-time blunt smokers to feel a bit overwhelmed by the combined tobacco-plus-cannabis buzz. But this is precisely the effect that many blunt fans want.
- The smell and taste of the tobacco wrap.
- The sometimes harsh smoke produced by the tobacco wrap.
- The additional “buzzy” effects typically produced by inhaling smoke from the tobacco wrap.
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.
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
The penultimate step is to roll up that fatty. If you can roll a joint, then you can absolutely roll a blunt. Just be extra gentle with the tobacco leaf. Flip, fold, and done. Also, it’s no harm to add a roach tip like you would for a spliff.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
