Last week we shared June pot picks from staff member Thomas – now it’s time to roll something up with that flower. Backwoods cigar wraps are difficult to unravel and roll; when done right they have a rich flavor and heavily bodied smoke with a slow burn. In these five quick steps, learn how to roll a Backwoods blunt with ease!
What you will need:
- Backwoods Cigar (“Honey Berry” is popular for its smooth sweet flavor)
- Optional: Tips or Filter
- Optional: Hempwick
Step One: Grind the weed you have selected. When selecting a strain, remember that the blunt wrap is made of tobacco and will have naturally energizing properties. Try an Indica or Indica-dominant hybrid for well-balanced effects.
Step Two: Unravel the Backwoods cigar. Each wrap will always have a side that has been sealed tighter. Start from the tightly rolled end and work your way toward the other end, slowly creating a divide.
Step Three: Carefully remove the tobacco from the wrap. Set it aside for trash or compost. If any tobacco is catching to the wrap make sure you peel softly, otherwise a small tear can cause a run in the finished product while it is burning.
Step Four: Sprinkle the ground cannabis into the Backwoods blunt wrap. To mimic a crutch, hold the wrap with a forefinger slightly inserted in the wrap during the process to ensure that the product is distributed evenly. This will also prevent extra cannabis from falling out either end when rolling.
Step Five: Lightly flatten the cannabis onto the wrap for an efficient rolling process. This is where the texture of the flower comes into play – when rolling, the stickier the better. With attention, begin to press and roll into an even cylinder. When there is about a quarter of an inch left to roll, simply lick or wet the top edge with water and seal the blunt.
Ta-da! The finished product is a neat, slow-burning Backwoods blunt. Now that you are done with those five simple steps, there is only one thing left to do: smoke it!
