Blunts are just cigarettes filled with cannabis. Because of the paper’s thickness, they can contain more cannabis than a joint or spliff. You can buy more products in our boutique.
A blunt, which is a cigar that has been pressed down and then rolled in hand-rolled tobacco, can hold up to 2 grams of marijuana. Because of their size, blunts are ideal for social smokers who like to share smoking sessions.
The inside of a blunt, like the interior of a joint, is exclusively marijuana. The souche inside makes no difference; it’s only marijuana. A blunt or a joint adulterated with anything other than cannabis should be referred to by another name.
The size of the blunt is also a substantial distinction between the two. A blunt, as the name implies, is made by filling a tobacco paper strip with your desired amount of marijuana. A clean cigar wrap may also be used to produce a blunt. Compressed tobacco leaf is frequently used to make cigar wraps.
While we’re on the subject of cigars, cigar wraps, and blunts, there’s a lot of discussion about hand-rolling versus machine-rolling. A machine is used to roll Honest Blunts. This allows us to ensure that every verified Honest Blunt meets our haut standards.
It’s not about who or what rolls the blunts, anyway. It’s all about the composition of the marijuana. To construct our blunts, we exclusively utilize top-of-the-line bud and organic-processed hemp leaf wrappers. There are no fillers or low-quality products here. That is how we do things at The Honest Marijuana.
The designer of this cigar, which resembles the legend regarding the best Cuban cigars being hand-rolled on virgin thighs, is a self-described “cigar guy.” What does it accomplish? Nothing. The hand-rolling gimmick was simply used to differentiate that particular smoke. It had nothing to do with the quality or flavor of the cigar. What was inside made all the difference.
We’ll put our machine-rolled honest blunts against any hand-rolled blunt out there, and we’ll promise that “hand rolling” won’t alter the quality, flavor, or experience.
Blunts are brown, and that’s all there is to them. There aren’t any weird colors or interesting patterns to be seen. All you see is the drab brown hue of dirt or muck. But really, it’s quite fine since the contrast between the brown wrapper (whether it’s tobacco, cigar, or hemp) and the green ganja gives each blunt its own unique look. You could call it a piece of marijuana art!
Why is this relevant to our discussion of blunt, joint, and spliff? Because color distinguishes the three. Joints are never brown (unless you go out of your way and pay through the nose to obtain), while blunts are never white, gold, or — god forbid — polka dot.
Joints and blunts come in a variety of sizes. Because they’re usually longer and thicker than traditional joints, blunts are typically larger. The thickness of the joint may vary depending on how much marijuana is put inside, although the length does not.
Some people prefer their blunts to be packed as full as possible, mimicking a commercial cigar. Some like them less than half-full, resembling a drinking straw. Regardless of the size, what’s on the outside makes a blunt a blunt: tobacco paper or cigar wrap.
The type of wrapping on your blunt will have an impact on the flavor. The most basic form of exterior wrapping is a tobacco blend. This may be useful at times. It can also be terrible at times.
Why is It Called a Blunt?
The term “blunt” refers to a cigar or pipe that has had its tip cut off. It was named for an American brand of cigars, Phillies, which smokers would empty and refill with tobacco for a “best of both worlds” experience. The Blunt cigar produced by the Phillies company is wider than a corona but not as wide as a cigarillo. It’s meant to be smoked more quickly than its regular-size counterparts. It’s also less expensive because it’s machine rolled rather than hand rolled. It may have played a role in cannabis enthusiasts selecting it when they were looking for a more inconspicuous way to consume marijuana so that it would appear like the user was just smoking a cigar. The term “blunt” originated as a name for marijuana cigarettes in cities in the Northeast United States. Over time, the phrase came to be synonymous with what it means today in the cannabis culture — cannabis contained inside either a hollowed out cigar or cigar tobacco paper.
Do Blunts Have Nicotine?
Yes. Blunt smokers are also smoking tobacco, which means they will absorb nicotine from the leaves. In a study published in Drug and Alcohol Dependence in 2016, researchers analyzed the wrappers of five popular cigar brands that are commonly used to roll blunts. The total nicotine concentration varied across cigar wrapper samples ranging from 1.2 to 6 milligrams per wrapper (mg/ wrapper). Each cigarette contains 10 to 12 milligrams of nicotine.
What Does a Blunt Look Like?
Blunts are typically wrapped in papers made from tobacco or hemp leaves, similar to cigars. There are not many visual options when it comes to rolling a blunt, but the rich brown color of a blunted wrap is enough on its own.
Blunt wraps are thicker and longer than paper wraps. This results in a slower burn than joints and spliffs. Blunts are roughly the size of a cigar. They’re bigger and chunkier than joints and spliffs.
Blunts are thought to have originated in the Caribbean, as Indian workers from Eastern Bengal brought marijuana with them for personal use during the mid-nineteenth century. While it’s unclear how or why blunts became so popular in the Caribbean, the few theories available claim that smoking dried tobacco leaves was superior to other smoking methods because it was easier to obtain than other smoking techniques, could cover up the smell of cannabis, or allowed users to consume more marijuana at once. Around the same time that smoking blunts became popular, tobacco businesses in the United States began making cigars with a rounded tip and utilizing one continuous tobacco leaf. Then, during the mid-1980s, as Jamaican, Dominican, and other Caribbean immigrants moved to large cities like New York, blunts became more prevalent.
