How to Roll a Blunt: Beginners Guide

Welcome to the world of blunt rolling! In this article, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about how to roll a blunt, including some useful tips for improving your smoke sessions. Blunt rolling is an art that has variety and style. With enough practice, you can roll cannabis cigars that will last for long sessions and get a room of people stoned. We’ll talk about how to roll the perfect blunt and then cover all the variations of ingredients and blunt wraps you can use.

What is a Blunt?

Blunts are cannabis cigars that resemble cigarettes. In a few ways, though, they differ from joints. Blunts use tobacco cigar wrappers or other thick paper made of materials like hemp or palm leaves–as opposed to the thin papers used in joints. Blunts are bigger and more powerful than even a king-sized joint and contain more marijuana. Furthermore, because blunts frequently include nicotine, they provide a distinct type of high.

Benefits of Smoking Blunts

People in the cannabis community tend to have strong opinions about blunts. Just like how not everyone enjoys the intensity of a bong rip, some people find the intense flavor and smell of a blunt too much to handle. One appealing aspect of smoking a blunt for some people is that it contains tobacco. The leaf used for wrapping the exterior is usually from a cigar, which provides smokers with a nicotine high that can be stimulating for some.

Because of the length and type of rolling paper, a blunt has a dank and resinous flavor. The flavor of a blunt is characterized by an underlying smoky flavor blended with citrus and pine notes from the cannabis. A distinct taste change occurs halfway through smoking a blunt as resin builds up in the cannabis cigar, making it more robust and powerful. A joint burns up after several passes, but a blunt keeps on smoking.

Materials Needed for Rolling the Perfect Blunt

You can easily roll a blunt with few materials, but if you desire, there are many extras you add to make the experience more fun. You have the option of rolling your blunt on any flat surface – some people use their lap! It’s not at all uncommon to see individuals doing this while they’re socializing or outdoors.

  • A Blunt Wrap
  • 1-2 grams of weed
  • A Grinder

Best Blunt Wraps to Roll With

You may roll a blunt in a number of different ways. There are many distinct types of wraps available to choose from when rolling blunts. The wrapper you utilize will have the most impact on the taste and size of your blunt. People are very particular about which type of wrap is best, and there is no right or wrong answer. It all comes down to whether you want a powerful tobacco flavor or a concentration on cannabis. Here’s a list of the most potent to least tobacco-flavored wraps that you’ll find in a blunt wrap. The final wraps on the list aren’t made with tobacco leaves at all; they’re composed with other plant leaves instead.

  • Backwoods Smokes- These cigars are affordable and easy to split. The tobacco is dark and full-flavored.
  • Dutch Masters- A robust cigar with a heavier wrap and substantial interior tobacco.
  • White Owl- Medium flavored tobacco and available in many standard flavors.
  • Swisher Sweets- These come with a tip that makes it easy to roll the blunt up, and they have a medium body flavor.
  • Zig-zag- These wraps have a light flavor and a low amount of nicotine.
  • King Palm- They’re made out of palm leaves and have a corn husk filter. They have the ability to store a large amount of marijuana as well as smoke at a steady rate.
  • Higher Standards- Hemp wraps are a type of food that is made from cannabis and hemp. They are sturdy and do not tear or wrinkle easily.

How to Roll a Blunt

Step 1: Start with a Fresh Wrap or Split and Empty a Cigar or Cigarillo

If you have a cigar with tobacco inside, you will want to carefully cut open the cigar length-wise and dump out the tobacco. If you are a fan of the flavor, you may want to keep a small amount of the tobacco to sprinkle with the cannabis, but be warned that cigar tobacco is strong and not meant for deep inhalation like cannabis. Cigar smoke is held in your mouth before being exhaled so as to fully enjoy its taste..

If you have a wrap that is simply the exterior leaf, such as a higher-standards wrap, be sure to remove any lining it may have before unraveling and flattening it. The more narrow form of the blunt wrap prevents it from folding over itself too far and creating an unburnable thickness.

Step 2: Grind Your Cannabis

It’s crucial to pay attention to the coarseness of your ground herb in order to roll a flawless blunt. The precise quantity of grinding will result in cannabis that is just the right size to burn evenly throughout the blunt. Cannabis for a blunt should be ground to a medium texture. If you grind too finely, the blunt will burn too quickly and end up burning at one end while remaining lit at the other. From one end to the other, best blunts stay lit but burn slowly. You may use a weed grinder with larger holes or simply turn it only a few times if you want a medium grind.

How Much Weed Should You Put in Your Blunt?

Blunts are bigger than cigarettes, and you can stuff a lot of cannabis into one. If you’re rolling up a party-sized blunt, you’ll need more weed; however, tobacco, dabs, or kief may be added to the mix. A blameless wrap is larger than a cigar wrapper because it’s been split and emptied. The one that comes from breaking apart a cigar isn’t as big.

Step 3: Wet the Blunt Wrap

To ensure your blunt wrap is dry and crisp, begin with one that contained tobacco. If it’s too stiff, wet the blunt wrap slightly by running your fingers across it after moistening them with water. The goal is to make the paper pliable without tearing it. Once you have a flat sheet, shape it into a “V” or half-cylinder so that it can hold ground up weed easily.

Step 4: Load up the Blunt

The easiest way to fill a blunt is to sprinkle the cannabis ground evenly over the cavity of the wrap, just as you would when filling a dike. If you’re adding tobacco, make sure it’s uniformly incorporated into the cannabis for flavor purposes. This is where you may use kief or even finely crushed dabs to supercharge your blunt. It’s time to start rolling up your smoking mix once everything has settled in the open blunt.

 Step 5: Roll the Blunt

Here’s how to roll a blunt! Start by taking the mouthpiece end of the blunt between your two fingers and squeezing it as you move your hands down its length. Keep doing this until the cannabis is packed tightly and the blunt has started to take on its desired shape. Next, fold over the bottom side of the wrap so that it covers and encloses the cannabis completely. The moisture fromthe wrapper should suffice in holding everything together, but if not, moistenthe top edge with saliva or water before rolling it up into a cylinder.

If your blunt needs water, only apply it to the dried out sections. It’s okay if the cannabis inside gets wet because we will dry off the blunt before smoking it. If your blunt cracks or rips while rolling, use adhesive from a joint paper to fix it or start over.

 tep 6: Seal the Blunt Wrap

Some people forget or don’t realize how important it is to seal their blunt. If you try and smoke your blunt right now, while the wrap still has a lot of moisture, it will be hard to keep lit and will burn unevenly. Once your blunt is rolled, it needs to be dried out some so that it burns smoothly–which is what makes blunts so enjoyable. Sunlight will usually be sufficient, although you may also run a lighter’s flame rapidly over the edges of it from a few inches away to dry it out. When using a lighter, keep the flame at least 12 inches away from the end to avoid burning it.

Light Up and Enjoy

When the blunt is dry, it’s time to light up. A blunt that has been rolled properly will burn for a longer duration than a joint, and usually provides a more potent hit. You may want to save it for smoking at another session; however, keep in mind that the resinous flavor will be stronger the next time you smoke it. The rich flavor and extended smoking session make blunts an excellent choice when sharing with friends. If you are indulging indoors, remember that the smell from a burning blunt is quite distinct and lingers much longer than bong smoke or even cigarette smoke would.

Different Ways to Wrap Blunts

Cigarillos and blunt wraps are easily accessible from any corner store, which is why they’re often used to roll blunts. However, there are some alternative methods to making a blunt without having to do the rolling yourself. If you find rolling difficult, one way around it is to use a pre-rolled wrap like those available from Higher standards or King Palm. All you need to do with these already rolled blunt wraps is fill them with ground weed before smoking. Just be warned – they usually take longer than traditional hand-rolled blunts!

Pre-rolled wraps, like other types of pre-rolls, feature filters that make smoking more pleasurable. You may use a paper filter or a high-quality glass filter with any blunt throughout the rolling process, just as you would a joint. Glass filters allow for a consistent stream of smoke when inhaling by restricting ash and particles from entering the mouth. A filter makes sharing a blunt nicer since the end can get sticky and difficult to handle.

Now It’s Your Turn to Create a Perfectly Rolled Blunt

With some practice, you will be able to roll a dank blunt quickly that you and your friends can enjoy for a long smoke session.
