Advantages of Smoking Blunts
1. Blunts are disposable,
resemble an ordinary object and are manufactured from ordinary objects
not necessarily known as paraphernalia.
2. Thanks to their tobacco wrapper, blunts burn more slowly than joints and can be shared with less detail than pipes, bongs.
3. Nicotine, a stimulant, creates a synergistic effect with the marijuana, as reported by a majority of blunt smokers.
4. The rigid sides of the blunt channel large amounts of smoke directly to the user without depositing any resin on non-consumable surfaces, such as the insides of a pipe.
You need steady hands, a wet
tongue, and some basic ingredients.
The first major task of this exercise is to slit the cigar lengthwise while clamping it tightly to a surface with a free hand so as not to tear skin surrounding the wound when the blade goes through the outer layer and contents of the cigar. On a double-layered cigar like the Optimo or Garciay Vega, allowing too much gravitational pressure on the cigar will cause it to lose an outer skin, so it should be held level and its innards scraped from it with gentle proddings of the knife. At this point the inside of the cigar should be cleansed
Once the cigar is free from residual
tobacco substitute, the user must assess its condition. Is it as dry as
paper normally feels? If so, it will need the intervention of tongue
along its length with gentle touch, being careful not to drench the
leaf wrapper, getting it moist enough to be flexible. Excess moisture
will cause the paper to tear and thus introduce repair problems later.
When cigar is ready, insert marijuana evenly along the length of the
Holding the cigar so that its conical end rests over the base of the thumb, gently compress marijuana using the end of the leaf facing toward the user. There is now a core of marijuana enclosed in half of the wrapper, under the thumb of the user, while the second half is unsecured and hangs over the core, facing the user with its cut edge. The bottom leaf then slides under the other side of the cut leaf and can be sealed. To close your blunt, lubricate each edge of the wrapper with saliva and, while pressing down on the lower portion of the blunt containing marijuana, firmly clamp the top edge of the wrapper onto the lower in order to fasten the sides of the blunt.
Some users prefer to use honey to seal or line the blunt before insertion of marijuana, claiming a sweeter taste and longer burn time. While this is true, one alert editor noted that the smoke is correspondingly harsher.
Unsteady or slow burn.
Either the marijuana in the blunt is
too losely packed, or there is a break in the skin somewhere. Seal skin
and if necessary, further break down large chunks of marijuana.
Most likely, the wrapper is either too
moist or not moist enough. If it is moist, give it time to fully dry
and then apply 2/3 of the moisture originally used. If wrapper is dry,
moisten and follow sealing procedure again.
If your cigar has an external leaf
wrapper as well as a tobacco leaf foundation, tear pieces of the
external leaf to fit holes in skin, and, wetting them thoroughly place
them over holes. Follow heat-sealing procedure on each instance.
Will not light
Probably your marijuana is dense, in
too large sizes of fragments, or your blunt has obstructed airflow and
flame cannot be sucked down tobacco tube. Most common solution is to
wet seam and carefully unfasten it, then to granularize the marijuana
contents further while removing extra woody or leafy plant matter.
