A blunt refers to a cigar wrapper that has been emptied of its tobacco content and filled with cannabis instead. Traditionally, cigarillos or small cigars made from rolled tobacco leaves are commonly used for making blunts. The existing tobacco inside the cigarillo is removed, creating space for the cannabis filler.

Why People Choose Blunts?

Blunts are preferred by cannabis enthusiasts for many reasons. Firstly, they allow for large quantities of cannabis to be smoked at once compared to methods like joints or pipes. This makes them perfect for sharing with friends or enjoying during gatherings. Additionally, blunts tend to burn slower than joints, providing an extended session.

Materials You Will Need

To roll your blunt, you will need a few items:

  1. Small Cigar: Select a flavor that complements the taste of your chosen cannabis strain.
  2. Cannabis: Grind your cannabis into fine pieces using either your fingers or a grinder.
  3. Rolling tray: Use a small tray or clean surface that can catch falling herb particles.
  4. Grinder (optional): While not essential, a grinder can help achieve an even grind and consistent burn.

The Process of Rolling

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to roll your blunt:

Step 1: Split the Cigarillo

Using your fingers or a sharp object like a razor blade or knife, gently split open the cigarillo lengthwise along its seam without tearing the wrapper.

Step 2: Empty out the Tobacco

Carefully remove all of the tobacco from the cigarillo. To make this process easier, you can slightly moisten the wrapper with water or saliva beforehand.

Step 3: Prepare and Pack the Blunt

Evenly distribute the cannabis along the length of the split wrapper. Avoid packing it too much; a firm but gentle press will do.

Step 4: Roll the Blunt

Starting from one end, roll the blunt between your thumbs and index fingers, making sure that the cannabis remains secure inside. Ensure that you distribute the herb evenly as you roll it smoothly.

Step 5: Secure It Closed

Dampen, but not excessively, one side of the cigarillo wrapper using either water or saliva. Proceed to seal the blunt by licking or folding this side onto the other, applying pressure to ensure it sticks together nicely.

Step 6: Trim Any Extra Wrapper (Optional)

If there is any wrapper beyond what you need for rolling your blunt, which is common due to variations in cigarillo size, simply use scissors to remove those unnecessary portions for a neater finish.
