Is there anything better than lighting up a blunt and taking that first hit? The distinct taste and smell, the slow burn, the smooth pull, and of course, passing it around a circle of your closest friends. That same circle of friends usually has a designated roller who takes on the very important job of supplying the perfect blunt for the group to enjoy.
Have you ever wondered how people have perfected the art of blunt rolling? As it turns out, it’s easier than it looks. If you remember to follow these simple tips, with a little practice, you’ll be rolling the perfect blunt every time:
Use a grinder: Using your fingers is tedious and time-consuming. A grinder speeds up the process and evenly breaks up the bud. Be careful of over-grinding your cannabis into tiny pieces, which can cause your blunt to burn too quickly. A medium-sized grind is the best for blunts.
Wet the wrap: This makes the blunt more malleable and prevents tearing. Using a wet paper towel to dampen the wrap is an easy way to achieve this if you’re not comfortable doing it the old-school way—with your saliva!
Use two hands: When it comes to the actual rolling part of the process, using both hands helps pack the bud evenly throughout the blunt. Take your time to ensure there are no lumps or bumps. Starting from the middle, roll your thumbs and forefingers together, moving in a slow, outward movement. Add a little more moisture if the wrap starts to feel stiff.
Don’t forget to seal: This might be the most important part of the process, but a step that is often forgotten in the haste of lighting up. Quickly drag your lighter flame along the length of the blunt to dry and seal the finished product.
Rolling the blunt is an integral part of the blunt-smoking experience, but it’s not as intimidating as it seems. The next time that designated roller reaches for the blunt wrapper, offer to take on the job instead and put your new skills to the test. Let us know how it goes!
