In short, a blunt is a hollowed-out cigar that has been filled with ground-up cannabis. A blunt can be rolled with tobacco leaf paper that is used for cigars.
Constructing a marijuana blunt is quite simple. You can either purchase rolling papers or blunt wraps. Some people like to use pre-rolled cigarillos or cigars, such as Swisher sweets, replacing all of the tobacco inside with cannabis or mixing the two.
There are many companies out there that sell papers and hemp wraps as “blunt papers,” though the only way that a product is a true blunt paper is if it is cigar tobacco paper. You can’t do the same thing with a cigarette, as cigarette papers are extremely thin and don’t take too well to being emptied out and refilled. Plus, a true hemp blunt does not have any tobacco in it.
The term “blunt” came from Phillies, an American cigar brand. Cannabis users would fill their Phillies with cannabis to experience the best of both cigar smoking and cannabis use. Once Phillies got word of this, they began manufacturing a cigar called a “Blunt.” The Blunt was a bit wider than a cigarillo, though not as wide as your standard Corona.
Blunts were designed to smoke quickly compared to other full-size apparatuses. These Blunts were machine-rolled rather than hand-rolled, making them far less expensive for people to get ahold of. Cannabis users loved blunts to begin with, as they were very discreet. To many, it would look like you were simply smoking a cigar.
In cities across the northeast, blunts became extremely popular. As time went on, the term solidified itself in cannabis culture.
You might be wondering what the difference is between a standard blunt and a standard joint. Here are some of the most important differences.
For starters, the appearance of a blunt is much different from that of a joint. Tobacco leaf wrappers are typically a tan or dark brown color. Rolling papers, on the other hand, which are used for joints, are either a lighter shade of tan or white if they are bleached.
It is pretty common for people to combine cannabis and tobacco when smoking a joint. The combination of the two in joint form is known as a “spliff.” Blunts, however, use strictly cannabis. Due to the fact that there is already tobacco in the cigar paper that you use to roll your blunt, adding more tobacco redundant.
Blunts are much sturdier and heavier, allowing you to pack more than you could in a joint. More often than not, you can pack more than two grams as much into a blunt compared to a joint.
There is something quite timeless about smoking a good blunt and nothing makes it better than smoking your own grow.
