How to Roll a Blunt/Joint
It’s no secret that pretty much everyone has either tried or regularly smokes marijuana. However there are some people out there who can’t roll their own stuff. Don’t fret, this will teach you how. There are millions of guides on this subject but everyone has their own way to roll up, which is the beauty of it. This process is best enjoyed while listening to “How to Roll a Blunt” by Redman
Cop them at your local gas station. West Coast smokers use swishers East Coast smokers use dutchmasters. If you can’t manage to get those, you can buy other ones like Phillies and White Owls but the first two are the most reliable. Games burn slow too. Whatever flavor you like. Hopefully buy this time your blend has already been broken up. If not take a second to do that (no seeds or stems though).
Lick it straight up and down (not like a woman’ s leg, but one or two good licks). Take a razor or straight edged knife and cut it along where you licked. It should split with no problem.? Over a trashcan, scrape out all the nasty tobacco.
Not sure if this is the correct term for it, but it is a little dark brown leaf under the outer leaf. Some people just rip it off, outer leaf and all. Other folk remove the out leaves altogether. For the sake of preference we’re going to continue as if we’ve removed the the outer leaves altogether. Now you’re left with The inner leaf.
Take your mixture and spread it evenly in the middle of your leaf. If you see seeds pick them out. Same goes for stems. If you’re too lazy to do this then prepare to be ridiculed by vet. smokers. We can tell when you’ve rolled up a seed or stem. Stems are crucial to remove, because they can puncture the leaf when you follow the next step.
Now comes the rolling part. You’ll have to bear with me, for this is the hardest part. Make sure your mixture is in the middle, then take the leaf edge closest to you and double it over, mix and all. It may take a couple tries for you to get this down, but practice makes perfect. You should now have a little lip of a further edge. Using all eight of your fingers, squish the blunt down into itself. Not too hard, but enough to keep it nice and compact.
Gingerly pick up your newborn blunt, lick across the lip and close it. My own way uses two index fingers, but do what makes you feel comfortable. This is in essence, a “naked” blunt; there’s no outer leaf on it but we’ll get to that.
If your outer leaf is in pieces, lick a piece, roll it on, repeat. If it is still one outer leaf, lick the entire thing, and put the blunt on the closer edge (that is, closest to you) and roll it up using all your fingers and thumbs. Once again it sounds difficult and most likely will be your first couple of times.
Flick your bic and run the lighter’s flame quickly up and down your finished product, which dries it out quicker.
