How to Roll the Perfect Blunt: A Step-By-Step Guide

Rolling a blunt is an art, and in this step-by-step guide, we’ll help you master it. But before we dive into the rolling process, let’s answer some common questions.

What’s a Blunt?

If you’re new to the world of smoking, you might wonder what a blunt is. A blunt is essentially a cigar emptied of its tobacco, leaving just the paper. Some people choose to leave the tobacco inside, but that’s a matter of personal preference. You then fill the paper with your chosen herb, with or without tobacco, and roll it up to create a smokeable delight.

Why Choose a Blunt?

People opt for blunts for various reasons. Some enjoy the added buzz from the tobacco, while others favor the taste and aroma of flavored wraps. Blunts are portable and offer a slower burn, making them last longer. However, some find the tobacco to produce a harsher smoke. The choice between a blunt and other methods is entirely a matter of personal preference.

How to Roll the Perfect Blunt

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Start by assembling the necessary supplies, including:

Your herb of choice
A cigar, cigarillo, or blunt wrap
A grinder
A lighter

For a typical blunt, you’ll need about 1–2 grams of your chosen herb.

Step 2: Grind Your Herb
If you haven’t already, the next step is to grind your herb. You can use a grinder for an even burn or use your hands for a more traditional approach, potentially resulting in a slower burn.

Step 3: Wet the Wrap
Add a touch of moisture to prevent the wrap from cracking and make it easier to roll. If you’re rolling a blunt for personal use, you can use your saliva. If sharing, opt for tap water and use your fingertips.

Step 4: Fill the Wrap and Roll the Paper
Load the wrap with your ground herb and roll it evenly between your fingers to pack it uniformly. Once shaped, tuck the edge of the wrap under itself, and moisten the inside of the exposed edge end-to-end to seal the blunt together.

Step 5: Bake the Blunt
The final step in rolling the perfect blunt is to “bake” it. Take a lighter and run it lengthwise over the seam and around the outside, ensuring the flame doesn’t touch the blunt. You only need the heat from the fire, not the actual flame. This process seals the blunt together and ensures an even burn.
