6 Easy Step Guide to Roll a Perfect Blunt Wrap
Let’s start with;
1.Choosing the Wrap
If you are going with a cigar or a cigarillo, we advise you not to use an old one. As these dry out rather substantially. Making them prone to cracks and breakage while you are rolling.
Blunt wraps, on the other hand, are easily accessible from anywhere you buy rolling papers from – you can also choose to get flavored or unflavored options.
2.Prepare the Weed
You have two choices when you are preparing the flower.
Either grind it up; this will help land you a consistent burn. While alternatively, the time-honored technique tells to break the flower – and doing so will get you a slower burn.
If you are set on blunt wraps, these come in ready to roll right out of the pack.
However, the cigarillos and cigars need emptying up, so use a clean razor blade/knife to cut open the wrap. Now, empty the tobacco contents, and you are good to go.
3.Moisten the Wrap
Blunt wrap becomes more flexible and manageable when moistened slightly. The moisture also helps seal the fine/tiny cracks that may result from cutting and emptying a cigarillo or cigar wrap.
If you are rolling a blunt for personal use, moistening can be done using saliva.
Dipping your finger in water is more hygienic if it is to be shared.
4.Fill up the Wrap
It’s time to fill the wrapt with your flower. As blunts are bigger than joints, on average, you will need 1 to 2 grams for a cigarillo-size blunt. You will probably need more if you use a wrap from a larger cigar.
5.Roll Your Blunt
Here’s the tricky part – the actual rolling.
As with everything else, practice will make you perfect. So, don’t be discouraged if you struggle with your first few attempts at rolling. Even the pros struggle with blunts sometimes, as the wraps are thicker.
Begin by rolling the wrap in between your forefinger and thumb; now, evenly condense the cannabis slightly into the right shape. Smoothly, fold the wrap underneath itself – wetting the inside edge of what remains.
Continue rolling until the weed is encased; there you have it, your blunt is sealed.
6.Bake and Smoke
Run a lighter along the seam of the blunt wrap. This will “bake it” or seal it, saving it from falling apart and allowing it to burn evenly.
And that’s it – your blunt is ready!
