How to roll a perfect blunt with cigar? Step-by-step instructions

Blunts have long been a popular choice for cannabis lovers seeking a unique and satisfying smoking experience.

They provide a slow, aromatic smoking experience that sets them apart from other methods of cannabis consumption, such as joints or hand pipes.

Mastering the art of rolling a blunt is a rite of passage for many stoners and an essential skill that enhances the overall smoking experience.

Wondering how to roll a blunt? Rolling a blunt is not as hard as it seems. After some learning and practice, you will be a pro.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the step-by-step process of rolling your own blunt and ensuring it burns slowly and draws smoothly every time. Let's get started!

What is a blunt?

A blunt is a cannabis-filled cigar, typically made by emptying the tobacco from a cigarillo or cigar and replacing it with marijuana.

The outer wrapper is often made of tobacco leaves and has a strong effect when smoked with cannabis.

The term comes from the popular brand of cigar wrappers called Phillies Blunt. It is a cheap, machine-made cigar, making it perfect for destroying to get to the wrapper.

Over time, the term took on the meaning it has in today's cannabis culture: cannabis in a hollowed-out cigar or in tobacco paper.

Blunts vs. Joints: What's the Difference?

Although blunts and joints basically serve the same purpose, there are clear differences between the two.

Unlike joints, which are rolled with thin paper, blunts are rolled with a tobacco cigar wrapper or other thick paper or the leaves of another plant such as hemp or palm.

Blunts actually have more substance than a king-size joint and contain more weed.

Additionally, blunts produce a different type of high because they often come with a cigar wrap or tobacco leaf wrap, which gives the weed in the blunt a unique flavor profile.

Why do people like blunts?

The distinctive, often sweet taste of the tobacco leaf or hemp husk adds a new flavor to your favorite cannabis strains.

In particular, tobacco leaves with a higher nicotine content give your high an intoxicating and energetic flair.

Additionally, blunts burn slower than joints, making the smoking experience longer and making them perfect for enjoying moments and passing them around.

The materials needed to roll a blunt

Before you start rolling, have all your materials ready so you can concentrate once you begin.

To roll a blunt, you need the following materials:

1. Cannabis

Choose your favorite strain of high-quality cannabis. Collect enough to fill a cigar.

For a blunt, 1-2 grams should be enough, but if you smoke a large cigar, you may need more.

Also consider the number of smokers in your area.

2. Grinding machine

A grinder is a tool used to grind cannabis into smaller, uniform pieces. This helps with even burning and makes rolling easier.

3. Cigar or blunt wraps

In smoke shops you can usually get blunt wraps made from tobacco leaves.

Blunt wraps are typically larger and thicker than regular joint papers, which can result in a slower burn and a longer smoking session.

If you're just learning how to roll a blunt, it's worth having extra wraps on hand.

You can also use a hollowed-out cigar by removing the tobacco. Any cigar or cigarillo will do, although a cigar that is too dry will break more easily and be more difficult to roll.

4. Sharp blade or knife

If you want to split a blunt wrap, you will need a sharp blade or knife. This is an important tool for splitting the cigar.

Do not use the blade if you can fill the cigar without cutting it.

5. Rolling tray

You don't want your grass to get lost in the carpet or scattered on the table!

Therefore, use a rolling tray to catch any excess weed that falls out while making blunts.

If you don't have a rolling tray, you can use a plate, the lid of a lunch box, or newspaper to catch weed and kief.

6. Lighter

A lighter is an essential tool in your blunt roller arsenal. You will need it for baking and lighting your handmade blunt.

How to Roll a Blunt: Step-by-Step Guide

Now that you have your materials, it's time to get started! Follow these 7 easy steps to help you roll the perfect blunt.

Step 1: Grind your cannabis

Place your cannabis into your grinder and grind the buds to a fine, even consistency. This will ensure a smooth, even burn.

Don't grind your buds too finely. You don't want your grass to look like dust.

To prevent this from happening, check your grinder after every other spin to make sure it is grinding properly.

Once your cannabis is completely ground, pour the flower onto your table, making sure there are no large clumps.

If there are any clumps, break them apart with your hands. Also remove any small twigs that can poke holes in the foil.

Step 2. Disassemble the cigar packaging

Use a sharp knife or blade to cut the cigar wrapper lengthwise, from the stub (the end you smoke) to the tip (the burning end).

Once it's open, pour out the tobacco. This will make room to fill a blunt with weed.

You could cut the cigar by hand, but you risk tearing the wrapper. Using a blade is quicker and easier.

To make handling easier, many people like to moisten the cigar. This can be as simple as moistening your fingers and running them over the wrapper.

Additionally, you can use a blank, flat blunt paper and start over.

Step 3. Moisten your wrap

If the blunt wrap is slightly moistened, it is more flexible and easier to roll.

The moisture can also help seal very fine cracks that can occur when cutting or emptying the wrapper of a cigar or cigarillo.

Lightly moisten the cigar wrapper or tobacco leaf by licking it or moistening it with a little water.

When you roll a blunt for yourself, this can be done with saliva.

However, if the drink is to be shared, it is much more hygienic and considerate to dip your finger in some water and use the water.

Step 4. Add cannabis

Then distribute your ground cannabis evenly into the opened cigar or blunt wrapper.

Spread the grass evenly in the middle of the cover, leaving a section open at one end. This is where you will close and store the end later.

Remember that too much or too little can affect the burn of the blunt.

Step 5. Roll the blunt

Once you have filled your smoking mixture into the open blunt, it is time to roll it.

Start by rolling the open wrapper between your index finger and thumb with both hands to pack the blunt evenly.

Continue pressing and shaping the blunt by squeezing it lengthwise to roll it into a cylinder shape. Once the blunt is formed, place one edge of the wrapper over your bud and tuck it under the other side. At this point, the wrapper should completely encase the cannabis.

Step 6. Seal your blunt

Once you've rolled the blunt, wet the inside edge of the top layer of the wrapper and press down to seal.

You can use your saliva or a slightly damp sponge or finger. Be careful to avoid tearing the packaging.

Step 7: Bake the blunt and enjoy

Since your blunt wrap is wet, it is important to let it dry before use.

A wet blunt cannot be smoked properly and is hardly enjoyable.

You can leave it in the sun for about ten minutes, that should be enough.

Additionally, you can use a lighter. Move the flame up and down along the seam to dry out the blunt wrapper.

The heat seals the wrap patches together so you can smoke them without worrying about them falling apart.

When using a lighter, be sure to keep the flame far enough away from the blunt object to avoid burning it.

After that, the blunt is ready. Simply light one end, inhale through the other and enjoy your sweet tasting, long lasting blunt!
