That’s right, joints, blunts and spliffs aren’t the same thing! So, it’s time to educate those who are unaware what-is-what, and we’re looking right at the older crowd here.
As we’re sure the TikTok generation is clutching their dry herb vapes thinking,
I don’t want to be exposed to unwanted chemicals…Gen Z Stoner
Anyway! For those old schoolers, there’s a real art to rolling. It takes years to perfect. But before we light it up – let’s define the differences between the holy cannabis trinity.
Differences between joints, blunts, and spliffs
So, you can define the differences between joint, blunts, and spliffs, by their contents. This is cannabis-tobacco ratio, as well as the rolling material, tobacco, hemp, and more.
Let’s get into the definitions:
The humble joint is the iconic method for cannabis lovers to enjoy their herb. It’s small, light, and portable. Just stick it in your pocket and light it up when you’ve reached your destination.
A joint consist of cannabis rolled up inside a thin rolling paper. These papers can vary in colour and materials, but you should just buy ours…
Then there’s bound to be a crutch, or filter, which is added for stability to the roll, and allows you to smoke it without burning your fingers.
When you wrap your precious cannabis within the body of cigar – you’ve just created a blunt. The cigar’s tobacco gives off unique flavours and buzz of energy with your high.
As a generalisation, blunts are bigger than joints and spliffs. Right! What’s a spliff?
This is fairly similar to a joint, but it has tobacco and marijuana mixed together inside the rolling paper. A spliff normally has more tobacco than a blunt.
Also, a spliff has a crutches. Experienced rollers will know exactly the ratio they like, and what alternative mixtures they like to add.
But at the end of the day, when rolling it’s all about the paper you use!
What paper you select will directly affect your smoking experience. It’ll also dictate how much cannabis you can fit in, the flavour, and the burn.
For flavours, you need to watch out if it is tobacco papers as it will be sweeter in taste, compared to an organic hemp paper. The thickness of the paper will determine the speed of the burn, if you want a slow burn use thicker paper.
While you can get flavoured papers, why would you? Like cannabis is tasty!
And finally, the ease of shaping the paper is important. Paper that doesn’t tear is a winner, as well as sealing properly, handles well between the fingers, and burns uniformly.
Now, you know the differences between joints, blunts, and spliffs.
