How Much Weed Is In A Blunt

How Much Weed Is In A Blunt?

People worldwide continue to favor smoking weed as a primary method of consuming weed. And blunts and joints take all the credit for that. As a result, crafting the ideal blunt or joint becomes the ultimate objective for cannabis enthusiasts upon initiating cannabis consumption. This is the same reason why you’d see so many people searching around for information on how much is a blunt or how to roll a blunt.

What Is A Blunt?

In simple terms, a weed blunt is essentially a cigar that's emptied and then filled with cannabis, often referred to as a weed cigar. The original blunt cigars, filled with tobacco, were created in Philadelphia during the 19th century. These blunts were distinct from regular cigars, being thinner, shorter, and designed for a quicker burn.

The surge in popularity of weed-filled blunts began in the mid-1980s. While there's speculation about the first weed blunt being rolled and smoked in New York City during this period, there's no concrete evidence to confirm this claim. The rise of blunts in hip-hop culture during that time is evident in references made to hip-hop songs and lyrics.

You can roll either a medicinal CBD blunt or a high-THC blunt filled with your preferred strain.

Certain consumers opt for weed blunts over joints because they introduce a trace of nicotine from the tobacco leaf during inhalation. A 2016 study published in Drug and Alcohol Dependence reported that cigar wrappers contain approximately 1.2-6.0 milligrams of nicotine per wrapper.

You can easily find perfectly rolled blunts in most weed sub boxes (along with other cool things).

The Difference Between Joints and Blunts

Both a blunt and a joint share the common element of containing weed. However, the distinction lies in their composition.

A blunt of weed comprises ground drugs rolled in an emptied cigar or a blunt wrap, whereas a joint consists of ground weed wrapped in thin rolling papers. Blunts, being bigger sizes, can hold more crushed cannabis compared to the typical, regular-sized joint rolling paper. The smoking experience varies significantly, attributed to the presence of tobacco in a blunt and the thicker smoke it generates.

What About Spliffs and Blunts?

While a spliff bears some resemblance to a blunt due to the inclusion of tobacco, it's essential to note the differences between the two. A spliff is a combination of crushed weed and tobacco enclosed in a thin rolling paper. Spliffs, like joints, are typically smaller than blunts in their size. Although both may offer a similar flavor and experience from the tobacco, the concentration of weed in blunts is higher. Yet again, a lot of weed box sub companies let you customize your box and add things like these to it.

Getting Yourself The Perfectly Rolled Blunt

Grinding the Weed

Do it either with your fingers or by using a grinder that you probably got in one of your weed subscription boxes. While breaking down the drug with your hand is an option when a grinder is unavailable, using a grinder ensures everything is ground evenly, resulting in a more uniform burn – hence, it's the preferred method.

Choosing Blunt Wrappers

If you haven't bought tobacco leaf papers, it's time to visit your local dispensary to purchase them or add them to your next weed box sub. Alternatively, you can utilize the wrapper from a cigar or cigarillo you have at home, such as Swisher Sweets, Phillies, or Backwoods. Simply cut the cigar lengthwise along the edge, empty the tobacco, or set it aside for spliffs.

Moistening the Cigar Paper

Once you have all your ingredients ready, it's time to roll your blunt; fat or tiny, however you like it. If you've opened up a cigar, consider moistening it to facilitate easier wrapping. Applying a bit of water not only aids in the wrapping process but also helps seal any micro-tears that may have occurred when splitting the cigar.

Filling the Blunt

Place your desired amount of ground cannabis at the center of the blunt wrapper and spread it lengthwise. How big is a blunt depends on how much weed you add to it. You have the option to include both tobacco and cannabis to create a spliff or solely add the weed. Adjust the weed quantity if you're incorporating tobacco to prevent overfilling the blunt. Once the cannabis is added, securely pack it before sealing the blunt.

Rolling and Sealing the Blunt

Tuck one edge of the weed blunt under the other, moisten the edge lengthwise by licking it, and seal the blunt. Any rips or tears can be covered with additional tobacco leaf paper.

Baking and Smoking the Blunt

Following the rolling and sealing process, you may opt to bake the blunt by running a lighter around the outer surface of the wrapper, ensuring an even burn. This step eliminates moisture at the blunt's seal and serves as the final preparation before lighting up your blunt.

How Many Grams Is A Blunt?

The capacity of a weed blunt largely depends on the size of the cigar you use. People have certainly tested the boundaries when it comes to packing weed into blunts.

A tiny blunt typically accommodates around 1 to 2 grams of weed, offering a frame of reference, as a standard joint usually contains 0.5 to 1 gram of marijuana. A blunt of cigarillo size has the potential to hold up to 4 to 5 grams of weed, while a fat blunt rolled with a tobacco blunt wrap can handle up to 7 grams of weed, contingent on the rolling technique. If you're looking to accommodate quantities surpassing this, utilizing a front leaf, a tobacco leaf, becomes an option. With a front leaf, the amount of weed is only constrained by the leaf's size and your proficiency in rolling.

How Long Does it Take to Smoke a  Blunt of Weed?

The duration it takes to smoke a blunt varies based on its size and the number of individuals partaking. Generally, a blunt tends to last a significant amount of time. While a typical king-size joint takes about 10 to 15 minutes to smoke, a big blunt may take anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes or more. Mostly. the quantity of weed and the tightness of the packing really matter.

Due to their substantial size, blunts prove ideal for communal smoking in groups. Large blunts, with their generous weed quantity, are convenient for passing around during bigger smoke sessions. Additionally, the thicker nature of a blunt wrap contributes to a slower burn, akin to that of a traditional cigar.
