Let’s get started.
The basic outline of this guide mentioned below. Let’s discuss the Rolling procedure in detail. The swisher roll is easy to make and get you baked instantly.
- Split the Cigar Wrap/ Gut the Blunt
- Break the weed
- Fill the weed
- Tuck the blunt
- Lick, roll and get baked
In a blunt, you don’t need to grind the weed; you can simply break it with hands. The fact is hand break weed is more preferable for a blunt. If you are rolling a weed joint then grinding weed is important.
#1. Split the Cigar Wrap/ Gut the Blunt
For a perfect Blunt, you need to cut the Blunt straight unless you have a cigar wrap without any tobacco in it.
Use a sharp knife to cut the cigar wrap straight from one end to another. If you have a steady hand then go for it but if you are doing it for the first time, remember precision is required.
Split the cigar wrap from the center and cut precisely from end to end. Remember not to tear the cigar. You only have to cut the top layer of tobacco leaf.
After the cigar is opened perfectly, remove all the tobacco from it, and make space for marijuana.
Note: if you are a beginner or do not have a steady hand, then we recommend using a blunt splitter. It is a small device to split a cigar straight.
With a Blunt splitter, you only have to push it straight to split the cigar. It is easier than using a knife and no matter where you are, you can still split it straight.
You can order the blunt splitter from any e-commerce site and get next day shipping.
If you still want to use a knife, then remember, you can only have one cut down the middle. Rolling a blunt with weed is easier only if the cigar is cut straight. If the cut is not straight, you will face a problem in rolling the Blunt.
You make sure the split should be as straight as possible.
Have you ever wonder why stoners have long nails?
The answer is they don’t have a knife and blunt splitter to split the cigar wrap. Yes, you got it correct. They spend the whole day splitting blunts with their nails. It is easy to use thumb if you have long nails.
Well, it’s totally up to you,the way you want to split your cigar wrap.
Take your time and get a clear straight split. Once you are done, use your finger to brush the tobacco out and get a hollow space for weed.
Here’s How to Roll a Blunt:
1. Break the weed
The next step is to prepare your weed. Many rollers like to grind their weed but not us.
It’s up to your preference that you want to grind your weed or just break it by hand. Here’s our theory, unlike joint, paper used in rolling a blunt is thick as compared with joint paper.
This means that the paper will burn at a slow rate. If you grind your weed before rolling a blunt then weed will burn more quickly then as compared to wrap itself.
So if you break your weed with hands i.e. not completely ground, then the blunt will burn slowly and give you a better feeling of euphoria.
So prefer breaking the weed by hands between your fingers and firmly rub them together till each of the buds is broken properly. When it is done, it should look like firmly chopped leaves. This will help in burning the blunt evenly.
So by now, your Blunt wrap and weed are prepared. Now it’s time to fill the blunt and roll.
2. Fill the weed
Now comes the easiest part in rolling a Blunt. Filling the weed in Blunt wrap is probably the easiest part of this process. All you have to do is lay down the Blunt wrap and sprinkle the weed on wrap evenly.
Remember unlike joint, where the weed is sprinkled starting from the filter and increasing the sprinkle amount towards the other end, weed is distributed evenly in blunt.
Blunts are like a uniform log whereas the joints are supposed to be in a cone shape.
Once you are done with this step you are probably ready for step 4. Now, it’s time to tuck your Blunt. Don’t get high by now as the tough part is yet to come.
3. Tuck the Blunt
Now, this is a crucial step in rolling a Blunt. All you need to do is practice for this one. The perfect tuck technique can only be achieved by practicing this step.
Once you practice, tuck will be the easiest part. Like an old saying, practice makes the man perfect. Similarly, the more you tuck, the master you become.
So, without wasting much time, let’s start it. Hold the Blunt with two hands and start rolling it back and forth. Move a bit back and forth so that the weed gets settled and sits flat in the bottom.
Don’t worry if any weed split out, it is totally fine. This is the only reason we told you to get a rolling tray. Rolling the blunt back and forth helps the weed to settle at the bottom and excess weed will split out during the process.
We always feel nasty to clean the desk with weed buds spilled over it. It all end ups begin wasted. This is why we recommend a rolling tray.
Once the weed is settled flat in the wrap, tuck in the wrap from one side over the weed and underneath the other side of the blunt wrap.
Now, you are just one step away from smoking that weed.
#4. Lick, Roll, and Bake!
Once the one end of the Blunt is tucked properly, lick the other end which is popped out from the edge.
Once the entire edge is licked properly, roll the entire rap to complete the process. Just press the upper side of the wrap which is licked and stick it with other ends.
If it is done correctly, then the wrap will stick without any difficulty. You might have to lick the wrap a couple of times before rolling the entire wrap.
Once all done, grab a lighter quickly and flame the blunt back and forth slowly to heat it from every side. This dries the saliva and makes it firm.
Flaming the Blunt has two benefits; firstly, it makes the Blunt firm by drying the saliva, and secondly, it probably kills the bacteria present on it.
Things to Remember
- Straight split: remember the split should be straight. If the slip is not cut straight from the middle then it will become a disaster while rolling. If you are a beginner then we recommend you use Blunt splitter. If it is not available then use a sharp knife.
- Even distribution: The weed should be distributed evenly in the Blunt, unlike joints where the quantity is gradually increased.
