How to Roll a Blunt
Rolling a blunt may seem like a daunting task, especially when you don’t know where to start. Don’t worry tho, with this step by step guide you’ll be twisting up a blunt that will have Snoop Dogg shedding a tear of joy. It’s not the easiest way to smoke your cannabis, but it sure is fun. Gather round kids, it’s time to learn How to Roll a Blunt!
Selecting 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 or ever come into contact with tobacco, they are specifically 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 and most likely not even work at all!
“Gut” the Blunt
The first and arguably hardest step is to “gut” or empty the contents of the blunt papers out. The easiest way is to take a blade and make a split lengthwise. Those who have steady hands can use their fingers to “crack” the blunt. Be careful as this is a great way to ruin your blunt papers.
Proceed to empty out the contents of the blunt wrap into a garbage can or save them if you really feel the need to roll a spliff after. We advise against adding tobacco into your joints!
Make the 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. Make sure to not make it damp or soaked, this will require you to get another wrap and start from square 1!
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 to put as much weed as we can in there. 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 and got quite a few people in the rotation, feel free to jam pack your clown car blunt.
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. Spread out the cannabis evenly in your blunt wrap. This makes the rolling process a million times easier. Just like a joint, roll the blunt paper gently back and forth until the cannabis has 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 it a bit wet, 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. Looks like you’ve pretty much learned how to roll a blunt.
Put the Blunt in the Oven
Don’t actually put your blunt in the oven, unless you want a toasty blunt that’s going to smoke up your house. Take a lighter and run it back and forth along the blunt to dry up and hold it together. Don’t put the flame on the actual blunt, just enough so the heat dries the blunt.
Congratulations, you’ve just learnt how to roll a blunt! Now take your new found skills and apply them in the real world.
