What You’ll Need to Roll Blunts

To roll picture-perfect blunts, you’ll need a few essential supplies. First up, you’ll want to invest in high-quality blunt wraps. Popular options include Swisher Sweets, White Owls, or Zig-Zag. You’ll also need about 1 to 2 grams of your favorite bud, a grinder to break it up, and a sharp knife or razor to split open the wrap. ### Wraps

For your first blunt, go with a classic like Swisher Sweets or White Owls in a natural tobacco leaf flavor. Once you’ve mastered the basics, experiment with flavored wraps, hemp wraps, or cigarillos. ### Grinder and Knife

A grinder will ensure your weed is evenly shredded to the perfect consistency. Any sharp knife, like a box cutter or X-Acto blade, will work to split open the wrap. ### Weed

You’ll want a minimum of 1 gram of high-quality bud for a standard-sized blunt. More is needed for larger wraps. Sativa or hybrid strains are great for an energetic buzz. indicas work better for relaxation. ### Optional Extras

Things like a rolling tray, hemp wick, and filter tips are optional but can make the rolling process easier. A tray collects any stray pieces of bud or tobacco. Hemp wick lets you light the blunt without inhaling lighter fumes. Filters prevent weed from getting in your mouth.

With these essential supplies and some patience while you practice, you’ll be rolling perfect blunts in no time. Now get ready to fire it up and enjoy!

Step-by-Step Guide to Rolling the Perfect Blunt

Split and gut the cigar

Carefully split your cigar down the middle, removing the tobacco inside. Be gentle – you don’t want to tear the wrap.

Grind your weed

For the best burn, grind your weed to a medium consistency, similar to coffee grounds. Too fine and it won’t burn evenly. Too coarse and it won’t burn at all.

Wet the wrap

Dampen the inside of the cigar wrap with a little water or saliva. This will help the wrap seal as you roll it. Don’t overwet it, or your blunt won’t burn.

Add your weed

Pour the ground weed into the gutted cigar, filling it evenly from end to end. Pack it in gently with your fingers as you go to ensure even burning.

Seal and shape

Carefully roll up the cigar, tucking in the edges to seal it. Gently roll and squeeze the blunt with your fingers to shape it.

Bake your blunt (optional)

For an extra tight seal, you can “bake” your blunt by gently heating it with a lighter while rotating it. Be very careful not to burn the wrap. This step is optional, but it will ensure an even burn.

Light up and enjoy!

Your perfectly rolled blunt is ready to light up and share with friends. Take it slow, and enjoy every toke of your handcrafted creation! You’ve earned it.

Blunt Rolling Tips and Tricks

Keep it tight

The key to rolling a perfect blunt is keeping it tight. Make sure to tuck the edge of the wrap firmly over the bud as you roll. Use your fingers to pack the marijuana down after adding it to the wrap. The tighter it is, the better it will burn.

Lick and seal

Once you’ve rolled the blunt, wet the edge of the wrap with your tongue to seal it. Press down firmly along the seal with your fingers as you roll it closed. This step is critical to ensuring an even burn and keeping the wrap from unrolling. Don’t be afraid to apply plenty of saliva to the edge—just make sure to wipe off any excess when you’re done sealing.

Wet the wrap

Before you add the bud, run the wrap under some water or lightly dampen it with your tongue. A moist wrap is more pliable and easier to roll, allowing you to achieve a tighter roll. Make sure the wrap isn’t too soggy, though. Gently blot with a paper towel to absorb any excess moisture before filling and rolling.

Pack as you go

As you roll the blunt, use your fingers to pack the marijuana down. Add some bud, pack it down. Add some more, pack it down again. Repeat this process until you’ve added the desired amount. Packing the weed down in stages will result in an even, tight roll that burns consistently. Don’t overpack at the end, or it may be hard to get a good seal.

Twist the end

For the final touch, twist one end of the blunt to seal it shut. Grab the excess wrap hanging off the end and twist it in one direction while pushing the wrap into the end of the blunt. Twist until the wrap naturally wants to fold over—you’ll feel some resistance. Lick the twisted end to seal it in place. Your blunt is now ready to spark up! With some practice, you’ll be rolling perfect blunts in no time.

How to Roll Different Types of Blunts

Classic Blunt

The classic blunt involves filling a cigar wrap with ground marijuana. Choose a wrap like a Swisher Sweet, White Owl, or Phillies Blunt brand cigarillo. Gently crack it open lengthwise, removing the tobacco filling. Grind your marijuana to a medium consistency, not too fine. Place it inside the wrap, making a straight cylinder. Seal the wrap with a lick of saliva along its edge. Light it up and enjoy, puffing slowly to keep the cherry lit.

Backwoods Blunt

For a more rustic blunt, use a natural leaf like a Backwoods cigar wrap. These come in flavors like Honey Berry, Sweet Aromatic and Russian Cream. Gently unwrap the leaf, keeping it intact as much as possible. Grind the marijuana and place it on the leaf, rolling and sealing the edge with saliva to form a tight cylinder. Twist off any excess leaf at the end. The natural leaf provides an earthy, robust flavor for the discerning blunt smoker.

King Size

If you want a blunt fit for two, choose a king size wrap like a Swisher Sweets King or a Phillies Blunt XXL. These extra-long wraps can hold 3-4 grams of marijuana for sharing with friends. Grind the marijuana and pack the king size wrap tightly but not too firm. Roll and seal as usual, using extra saliva to tightly seal this larger wrap. Kings provide a drawn-out smoking experience, so sit back, relax and enjoy with good company.

Using different wraps, you can customize your perfect blunt. Keep trying new flavors and sizes—you might just find a new favorite to share with fellow blunt enthusiasts. Roll up, spark up and pass to the left!

Blunt FAQs: Answers to Common Questions About Rolling Blunts

How can I seal my blunt better?

Applying heat, like running the lighter flame along the edge of the blunt wrap, helps activate the gum adhesive and seal the wrap tightly. Make sure to moisten the entire edge of the wrap before sealing for the best results. Taking it slowly and applying even pressure as you roll the blunt will also promote a good seal.

What’s the proper way to grind the weed for a blunt?

For blunts, you want to grind the cannabis bud to a coarse, chunky consistency. Don’t grind it into a fine powder. Break up the bigger buds with your fingers first. Then place the chunks into a grinder and grind until the pieces are roughly the size of bread crumbs. This will allow for good airflow through the blunt and an even, slow burn.

How can I make sure my blunt burns evenly?

The key to an evenly burning blunt is ensuring the cannabis is packed consistently—not too loose but not too tight. As you roll, check how firmly the weed is packed by gently squeezing the blunt. It should have a little squish but still hold its shape. If it’s too loose, the blunt won’t burn well. If it’s too tight, it won’t draw properly.

How much weed do I need to roll a blunt?

The amount of cannabis needed depends on the size of the blunt wrap you choose. A standard 1 1/4 size wrap will require 1 to 2 grams of moderately ground weed for a nicely packed blunt. Smaller wraps (1 gram size) will only need around 0.5 to 1 gram. It’s best to start with less weed—you can always add more as you roll. But you can’t take it out once it’s in! Add a little at a time and check how it’s packing before adding more.

Why does my blunt go out or not hit well?

There are a few common reasons why blunts don’t stay lit or don’t hit well:

•It’s rolled too loose or too tight. Double check that the weed is evenly and moderately packed as you roll.

•It’s not sealed properly. Make sure to moisten the entire edge of the wrap before sealing and apply heat for the best seal.

•The wrap is too wet or dry. Blunt wraps need to have the right moisture to roll and seal well. Make sure the wrap is not soggy or brittle before adding the weed.

•There’s not enough weed for good airflow. Add a bit more cannabis to ensure even airflow through the center.

•The lighting end was not “primed”. Run the lighter over the end you light a few times to slightly char it before the first hit. This helps it stay lit.
