Rolling a blunt may seem like a daunting task, especially when you don’t know where to start. Don’t worry though, with this step-by-step guide you’ll be twisting up a blunt that will have Snoop Dogg shedding a tear of joy. Although, it’s not the easiest way to smoke cannabis, it’s certainly an enjoyable experience. So, gather around everyone, it’s time to learn how to roll a blunt!
1. Select the Right Blunt Paper
There are tons of different variations of blunt papers that you can use to roll one up. From cigars to hollowed out cigarillos and individually wrapped blunt papers, there’s numerous variations you can choose from. We definitely suggest going with organic, hemp made blunt wraps. These papers are not made from tobacco, nor do they ever come into contact with tobacco. Such papers are actually made to be rolled into cannabis filled blunt wraps.
If you don’t have access to hemp blunt wraps, that’s alright. You can pick up a pack of cigars such as “backwoods” or “phillies” which will work just fine.
Pro Tip! Try and get your blunts from a source that sells them often. Picking up a pack of dry cigars will ruin the rolling experience, making the blunt completely un-smokable.
2. “Gut” the Blunt
The first and arguably hardest step is to “gut”, or in other words, empty the blunt paper’s contents. One effective way is to take a blade, and cut the blunt across it’s entire length. For those who have steady hands, they can instead use their fingers to “crack” the blunt, however, using your fingers to do this is an easy way to ruin blunt papers.
Once this is done, proceed to either empty blunt wrap’s contents into a garbage can or save them for future spliff rolling use. P.S. We advise against adding tobacco into your joints!
3. Make the Blunt Wrap Moist
Sorry for those who can’t bear the word moist, but that’s exactly what you need to do. Using your breath, exhale up and down the blunt to make it more malleable to work with. Blunt wraps are normally a little dry, and a bit of moisture goes a long way. However, make sure it’s not over moist, as in damp or soaked, which will require another wrap, making you start from scratch.
4. Fill the Blunt
Now for the fun part – filling up your blunt with that tasty cannabis you want to smoke. Since we’re rolling a blunt, we want it packed with as much weed as possible. A good rule of thumb is that an average sized cigarillo will fit about 1-2 grams of weed. If you have a larger blunt with more than several people in the rotation, feel free to jam pack your blunt clown car style.
5. Roll Your Blunt Wrap
Be careful with this step, as all your hard work and dedication can go down the drain with a bad roll. Like we said earlier, make sure the blunt is a little moist so you can shape it up nice and easy.
Next, spread out the cannabis evenly in your blunt wrap. This makes the rolling process a million times easier. After it’s spread out, just like a joint, roll the blunt paper gently back and forth until the cannabis forms the shape of your wrap. Then proceed to roll it up and lick it closed.
You will most likely need to use a bit more saliva then you’re used to with a joint. Don’t be afraid to get the blunt a bit wet, as the next step will take care of the moisture. If the blunt ends up with a few cracks or wont close properly, use the gummy from a rolling paper to keep it in place.
And, that’s it! Looks like you’ve pretty much learned how to roll a blunt.
6. Put the Blunt in the Oven
Don’t actually put your blunt in the oven, unless you want toasty enough to smoke up your house. Instead, take a lighter and run it back and forth along the blunt until it becomes more dry and stiff.
Also, do not put the flame on the actual blunt, just run the lighter close enough so it’s feels the heat.
