Feel The Force Of The Blunt: How To Roll In 6 Steps
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.
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.
KEY INGREDIENTS FOR A BLUNT
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.
HOW TO ROLL A CLASSIC BLUNT IN 6 STEPS
- STEP 1: SPLIT
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.
- STEP 2: DUMP
Gut the cigar. Remove all the tobacco innards to make room for your marijuana.
- STEP 3: STUFF
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.
- STEP 4: LICK
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.
- STEP 5: ROLL
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.
- STEP 6: SEAL
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.
THE SHORTCUT 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.
Blunts are a king-size dose of THC. Unfortunately, they really are like Darth Vader—all that sticky green goodness is wrapped in a toxic tobacco sleeve. Blunts are certainly not the healthiest way to get high. That being said, a fine blunt is best reserved for a special occasion or a social gathering. A few puffs from a fat blunt can be enjoyed by the whole party like an appetiser.
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.
