How to Roll a Blunt: A 5 Step Guide
Research shows that the global market for cannabis will be worth $73.6 billion by 2027.
If you’re one of the people contributing to this market, chances are you’ve smoked a blunt or two in your time. However, you may not have learned how to roll a blunt perfectly before.
Read on as we show you the five key steps to rolling perfect blunts every time.
1. Gather Your Supplies
To roll and smoke a blunt, the minimum you’ll need in terms of supplies is weed, blunt wrap, and a lighter.
However, it might also be a good idea to use a grinder if you have one. Also, if you’re using a cigarillo rather than an empty blunt wrap, you will be able to split it more precisely if you use a sharp knife (more on that below).
2. Grind Your Weed
This is obviously much quicker and easier if you have a grinder. Fat blunts can use as much as a full eighth of weed; nobody wants to have to break up that much with just their fingers!
There’s no need to grind your weed into dust. It will actually be easier to roll if it’s a little bit lumpy, as it will form a shape more easily and will be less likely to spill out of the wrap. However, don’t leave it too lumpy either, as it won’t burn properly if you do.
3. Prepare the Blunt Wrap
If you get a special blunt wrap from a store, this part is done for you.
However, many smokers still make their blunts in the traditional way. This is achieved by breaking apart a cigarillo, emptying out the tobacco, and filling it with weed.
Experienced rollers can often break apart a cigarillo perfectly with their hands. However, this is tricky for beginners. It’s quite easy to rip the paper and ruin your blunt.
To ensure you get it right, use a sharp blade to cut a straight line through the paper.
4. Roll it Up
This is the most difficult part. Rolling good blunts takes plenty of practice.
First, open up your blunt wrap and fill it with weed. You’ll want to have more weed in one end of the blunt than the other so that you end up with a slight cone shape. The thinner end will be the one you smoke through.
A standard blunt should contain somewhere between one and two grams of weed.
Roll with the thin end in your stronger hand. Slowly and carefully roll the contents into a rounded shape before licking and pressing the blunt wrap to seal it up. Make sure to press it hard, as blunt wrap doesn’t come with glue like normal papers do.
If you’re not an experienced roller but you want to medicate, don’t worry. Invest in some CBD pre rolls until you master the art!
5. Sit Back & Enjoy!
Find somewhere nice to smoke, put on some good music or a funny movie, get yourself some snacks, and enjoy your blunt!
