What Should I Use to Roll a Blunt With?
There are many suitable options to roll up a blunt with. Below I will define the difference between a blunt and a cigarillo, which can both be used to gut and roll cannabis blunts with, and take a look at different and the best brands to use. Happy smoking!
A blunt is a cigar which is wider than a cigarillo and not quite as wide as a Corona. Blunt cigars typically consist of two main parts; the inner leaf, which is similar to a cigarette rolling paper, except it is made of tobacco, and a thicker outer leaf which is rolled around the inner leaf in a spiral.
A blunt may also refer to a slang term for a cannabis cigar where the wrapping is a tobacco product. The leaf of a spiral wrapped cigar is moistened and removed. The cigar is then cut and the tobacco is removed and discarded. The cannabis fills the tobacco wrapping and is rolled back up to be smoked.
A cigarillo is a short, narrow cigar. In Spanish “cigarillo” literally translates to ‘little cigar’. Unlike cigarettes, cigarillos are wrapped not in white paper but in tobacco leaves or brown tobacco based paper.

They also feature a variety of flavours: Peach, Menthol, Chocolate, Grape, Double Barrel Rum and others.
