What is a Blunt and Which Blunt Wraps are the Healthiest

A blunt is what we call the already rolled up cigar. A blunt paper/wrap is the paper that holds the contents inside. These are usually made with tobacco and so, many smokers use hemp wraps, also known as hemp leaf papers. Those that smoke tobacco papers may do it because the tobacco adds a little extra to the high. 

Smoking is not really healthy at all, but for a healthier smoke, leaves are used more than papers. Tobaccoless blunt wraps have been huge. Some of those brands are Cannagar, High Hemp, Raw, and King Palms.

Tools Needed For Rolling a Blunt

The tools you need are: 

  • Cannabis/ Marijuana
  • Grinder
  • Blunt/ Paper/ Wrap 
  • Lighter. 
  • Patience

Steps to Rolling a Blunt

The steps are crucial for rolling a blunt:

1.      Open the wraps or cut open the cigar to take out all the tobacco out. 

2.      Grind up the cannabis/ marijuana. Only grind what you’re using. If there are seeds, make sure you take them out before you grind it, you may need them for later (wink wink).

3.      Curve you wraps or cigars so it will be an aerodynamic shape to put the cannabis/ marijuana in- so it won’t spill out.

4.      Fold over the end where the cannabis/ marijuana was placed and pinch it, then roll it again so you only have the closure part of the wrap or cigar showing.

5.      Take the part that is about to close the blunt, fold it over, and use lips and tongue to close and seal the blunt. Make sure you use just the right amount of saliva to seal it. Too much will make it fall apart, too little it won’t close.

6.      After you’re done with closing the blunt, use your lighter to dry out the saliva.
