There are many ways to consume cannabis, and two of the most popular methods are blunts and joints. But what’s the difference between them? How should someone choose the right one for their needs?
Today we are putting blunts vs joints to the test to help you learn more about the differences between them and how to pick one that’s best suited for your needs.
What is a Joint?
A joint is cannabis or hemp flower rolled into a cigarette-style paper. Rolling papers are made from a variety of materials, including rice, hemp, and flax. They come in different sizes, but the most common size is about 75 mm (about three inches) long by 35 mm (about one and a half inches) wide.
Joints can be rolled with or without a filter, which is often made from cardboard. Some people believe that filters make joints easier to smoke, while others believe they don’t do much to improve the experience.
In general, joints are best suited for someone looking to smoke flower by themselves. Because they are smaller and burn more quickly, it can be difficult to share them with others.
What is a Blunt?
A blunt is cannabis or hemp flower rolled into a cigar paper. The most common type of blunt paper is made from tobacco leaves, but there are also blunt wraps made from hemp or other materials. Blunt papers are usually between 100 mm (about four inches) and 150 mm (about six inches) long.
Blunts are generally larger than joints, which means they can be shared with more people. They also burn more slowly, so they tend to last longer.
Because of the material blunts are made from, the wraps themselves may have their own flavor. This can sometimes alter the taste of the flower itself.
Prerolled Blunts and Joints
Prerolled cannabinoid blunts and joints are available for purchase at most dispensaries. These are ready-to-smoke products that come in a variety of sizes and strains.
Some people prefer prerolled joints because they’re easy to use and don’t require any special rolling skills. Others prefer pre-rolled blunts because they’re often more potent and created by people who are experienced rollers.
Tips for Deciding Between Smoking a Blunt or a Joint
Are You Smoking By Yourself or with Others?
If you’re smoking by yourself, a joint is probably your best bet. If you’re smoking with others, a blunt might be a better option since it can be shared more easily due to its slower burning time.
Do You Want to Taste the Flower or the Wrap?
If you want to taste the flower more than the wrap, go for a joint. The paper often does not have a distinct flavor and will not alter the taste of your cannabinoid flower.
On the other hand, if you’re more interested in the flavor of the wrap, go for a blunt. The tobacco leaves (or hemp/alternative blunt wrap) will often impart a subtle taste that can enhance your smoking experience.
How Much Time Do You Want to Spend Smoking?
If you want a quick smoking session, go for a joint. Joints generally burn more quickly than blunts due to their smaller size.
Blunts, on the other hand, will last longer since they’re rolled with more flower. This is ideal if you’re looking for a relaxing smoking experience that will last for an extended period of time.
Do You Have Any Allergies or Sensitivities?
Depending on the material the joint or blunt is rolled with, you may want to opt for an alternative that you are not allergic to or sensitive to. For example, if you are allergic or sensitive to tobacco, you will want to find an alternative wrapping for a blunt.
How Skilled of a Roller Are You?
If you’re not very skilled at rolling, prerolled joints and blunts are probably your best bet. These products are made by people who have a lot of experience rolling and can ensure that the joint or blunt is rolled correctly.
On the other hand, if you’re looking to start rolling your own, consider starting with joints. They are generally smaller and easier to roll than blunts. Once you’ve become more comfortable in your rolling abilities, you can start trying to create your own blunt.
