There are several popular methods today on how you can enjoy your cannabis for the best smoke. Stores and sites now sell different instruments. You can try for a unique smoking experience. This would cost you a bit more, but these methods all have something to offer. Yet the classic way to enjoy your weed remains superior, by smoking it from a blunt. That’s why it’s important to know how to roll a blunt perfectly.
Blunts are an affordable way to smoke some Mary Jane without compromising the potency and quality of your buds. They are similar to cigars, but with a surprise inside, containing fresh and flavorful buds to replace tobacco. Plus, smoking blunts can be customized by making them yourself. Rolling up a blunt is even easier than it seems, and all you will need are your hands, your supply of weed, and a few tools that you already have in the comfort of your home. In this guide, you can learn how to roll a perfect blunt in a few quick and easy steps.
Gathering Your Materials for a DIY Blunt
Making your blunt is an easy and affordable mini crafting project. You should be able to have these supplies around the house, but you can also check out most stores around you that carry them.
- Fresh cannabis flowers. One to two grams should be enough for one roll, depending on its size. At most, you can use up to 3 grams of weed in your blunt if you would rather have a plump cigar. The more fresh your cannabis is, you will get a richer aroma and flavor from your blunt.
- Blunt wraps. This can be rolling tobacco papers, or you can repurpose a new tobacco cigar by removing its contents. You can also add more flavor to your smoke by using flavored blunt wraps.
- A Blade. This may be optional, depending on if you will be using a rolling paper or a ready-made cigar to cut open.
- Grinder. Using this will help finely grind your weed for it to burn evenly as you smoke. If you prefer your blunt to last longer, you can break the buds into small pieces with your own hands.
- Water. Set aside a small amount of water in a cup or bowl. This will give a blunt that perfectly shaped role.
- Lighter. You will need this, in the end, to seal the deal for and is the key to cooking up the perfect blunt.
Steps on How to Roll a Blunt Perfectly
It’s crucial to follow the right steps on how to roll a blunt properly. Check out these steps:
Grind and Break Your Weed
Using a Grinder:
Fill up your grinder with the buds and cap it off. Twist your grinder until you get nice crushed bits. Do not grind your buds into a fine powder. It would help if you still have some tiny chunks to avoid killing off the trichomes and cannabinoids.
The Traditional Method:
To crush your cannabis by hand, break it into small chunks. They should be small enough to roll up easily but not fine in texture. Break the flower gently so that you can still retain some of the trichomes and cannabinoids.
Set aside the grounds and proceed to prepare the blunt wrap or rolling paper.
Prepare Your Wrap
If you are using packed cigars, cut your blade along the cigar wrap lengthwise to split it open and remove all contents until clean. You can set aside the tobacco and roll up again to smoke or combine it with weed to create a spliff. Lay the cigar wrap flat in preparation to roll your blunt. If you have rolling papers, you can skip this and proceed to the third step.
Dampen the Wrap
Dip your fingertips onto the water and lightly rub them on the rolling paper. Avoid making the wrap soaking wet, or it cannot be rolled. You may also use a brush if you want to keep your setup neat. A bit of moisture makes rolling and shaping the blunt easier.
Fill Up the Wrap
Scoop or take a pinch of weed and fill the wrapper. Add as much as you want, but make sure it is enough to fit once you roll it. Your wrap should still have enough space to keep it sealed.
Roll and Seal Your Blunt
Carefully take the open blunt in your hands and roll it. You should have one end of the wrap tucked inside and the other end exposed. Lightly dampen the exposed edge and press it gently onto the tucked end to seal. Smooth out any creases or wrinkles with your fingers.
Bake The Blunt
Using the lighter, drag it along the seal to glue it shut. Turn your blunt around to give it a full and even bake to give it extra flavor and prepare the cannabis for smoking. Make sure to keep a fair distance from the flame to avoid burning the blunt.
Though you might be tempted to try popular smoking methods, the price and ensuring you get a quality smoke often poses a problem. By preparing your blunts, you can customize them to your liking without compromising the quality of its flavor and the smoking experience. Once you have everything you need, you can start by grinding or breaking up your buds, making sure that they are still coarse and small enough for a smooth roll later on.
Next, lightly dampen your choice of rolling paper then fill it with the crushed flower. Add as much as you like but leave some space so that you can roll in the blunt. Once your blunt is rolled up, seal the exposed end of the wrap by moistening it with water, then press it against the tucked side.
Finish off the lighter by baking it all around with a lighter. You can also add a twist to your blunt by mixing cannabis and tobacco or using flavored rolling paper to compliment your every puff. By rolling blunts yourself or crafting them with your friends, the possibilities are endless for a delightful and cheap fun smoke.
