How to Roll a Blunt

A blunt is to a joint what a cigar is to a cigarette. Or more simply, it is a cigar that has been emptied of its loose-leaf tobacco and filled with cannabis. But unlike joints, the defining feature of a blunt is that it is wrapped in tobacco leaf paper, rather than a standard rolling paper. This feature provides many of the distinctive qualities of a blunt, including taste, smell, effect, and burn time. Rolling a blunt is a skill that any cannabis smoker should have. Blunts are one of the most popular methods of smoking because of the size and strength of the hits compared to that of a joint or a pipe. There’s also something ceremonious about a blunt. You might think rolling a blunt is a skill you learn once you’re a marijuana expert who has been smoking for years, but it’s not as hard as it looks. You can easily be the life of your next party, rolling blunts for everyone to enjoy.

What you need to roll a blunt

To roll and smoke blunts like a pro you will need a handful of key components. Obviously, you will need your cannabis strain of choice. Since you’ll have to grind your bud before rolling your blunt, it is best to also have a reliable grinder. To keep your workspace tidy, a rolling tray will also come in handy.

To roll a blunt like a pro you will need the key components:

  • Cannabis strain of choice
  • Cigar, cigarillo, or blunt wrap
  • Weed grinder and razor blade are optional but may be helpful for those new to rolling

Any cigar or cigarillo will do, but we recommend one that isn’t completely dried out, as it’ll break easier and be harder to roll. 

 Traditionally, you buy a pre-rolled cigar or cigarillo, empty out the contents, and then repurpose the tobacco wrapping paper by filling it with weed before re-rolling it into a blunt.These days you can usually find blunt wraps at any corner store, which are like one giant rolling paper made out of tobacco.  Popular cigar and cigarillo brands include:

  • Swisher Sweets
  • Dutch Masters
  • Backwoods
  • White Owl
  • Phillies

The other type of blunt wrap is a tobacco leaf paper that comes as-is and is not a pre-filled cigar or cigarillo. Zig Zag Blunt Wraps are probably the most common wrap in this category.

How to Roll a Blunt: 6 Steps

Step 1: Grind your cannabis

Break down your cannabis into shake using a grinder or your hands. Using a grinder will help maintain an even burn, while using your hands is the more traditional method and is often preferred to help the blunt burn a little slower.

Weed grinders can break your cannabis up into small bits for smoother-hitting bowls or for wrapping in rolling papers and blunt wraps. There are a number of ways to grind cannabis if you don’t have a grinder, but grinders speed up the process and offer perks like kief catchers.

Step 2: Prep the blunt wrap

To roll your blunt you’ll need a tobacco wrap. Traditionally, connoisseurs will empty a cigarillo (like Swisher Sweets, Phillies, or Backwoods), but these days you can find empty wraps at the corner store.

Use a blade to cut the blunt lengthwise, or if you’ve got the right touch you can “crack” the blunt using your fingers.

Once you’ve split the blunt, empty the tobacco from the middle and discard (or if you like to smoke spliffs, save it for later).

Step 3: Wet the tobacco wrap

Using just a little bit of moisture will make your blunt wrap easier to work with, shape, and help seal up any small tears that might occur while you’re emptying its tobacco innards. This is easily done with some saliva, but if you’re rolling this blunt for someone else, you might consider using the tip of your finger and some tap water.

Step 4: Fill it up

Fill the empty tobacco wrapping with ground cannabis. For a standard size cigarillo one to two grams is plenty, though if you’re sharing your blunt, are an experienced roller, or are using a blunt wrap, you should be able to fit a fair amount more.

Step 5: Roll the blunt wrap

Roll the cannabis between your fingers to pack the blunt evenly. Be careful: if you didn’t moisten the wrap enough, it may crack.

Once you’ve packed and shaped your blunt, tuck the wrap under itself and wet the inside of the exposed edge from end to end. Use your fingers to smooth out any wrinkles.

Tip: If you poke a hole or if the blunt cracks while you’re working with it, you can use the gummy adhesive from a rolling paper to repair it.

Step 6-7: Bake the blunt and enjoy!

Now that your blunt is rolled, you’ll want to “bake” or dry it to help seal it together and encourage an even burn. Bake your blunt by running a lighter lengthwise under the seam and around the outside. Be careful not to hold the lighter too close—you only want the heat, not the flame.

Now that you’ve got your blunt rolled, all that’s left is to light the end and enjoy with some friends!

Why people like blunts

Many marijuana consumers have strong feelings about blunts. Those who love blunts tend to really love them. There are a handful of reasons why blunt lovers prefer this method of smoking above other methods:

Taste and smell – Many blunt fans enjoy the added tastes and smells that come from the tobacco leaf wrap. Aficionados often like mixing and matching wraps with different strains. Some blunt smokers also like experimenting with flavored blunt wrappers, introducing even more complexity to the taste and scent profiles of their smoking experience.
Slow burn – Blunts tend to burn a bit longer than  standard joints, giving smokers an experience more akin to slowly puffing on a cigar or cigarillo.
Versatility – Compared to other, less mobile smoking methods, such as a bong or dabbing, blunts are incredibly versatile. You can easily and quickly roll one up anytime and anywhere, and they’re equally effective for solo and social smoking.
Effects – The tobacco leaf wrap introduces a new and often heightened sensation of feeling high. In fact, it’s fairly common for first-time blunt smokers to feel a bit overwhelmed by the combined tobacco-plus-cannabis buzz. But this is precisely the effect that many blunt fans want.

Why people hate blunts

Interestingly, the reasons some people love blunts are also the reasons other people hate blunts. Specifically, people who hate blunts tend to be turned off by:

The smell and taste of the tobacco wrap.
The sometimes harsh smoke produced by the tobacco wrap.
The additional “buzzy” effects typically produced by inhaling smoke from the tobacco wrap.

    Advantages of Smoking a Blunt

    People tend to either love or hate blunts. The main complaint against them is they have tobacco and can make for a harsh smoke.

    Some reasons people prefer blunts are:

    • Heightened effects: the tobacco adds a buzziness and energy to your high
    • Flavor and aroma: some people love the smell of a burning blunt, especially if you use a nice cigar or a flavored blunt wrap
    • Portable: like joints, you can take a blunt anywhere
    • Slow burn: Blunts burn slower than joints, so they last a lot longer in your smoking circle
