If you’re new to hemp, there are three broad categories that rolls fall under: joints, blunts, and spliffs. Each can be defined by their content (hemp-tobacco ratio) as well as the rolling material, tobacco, hemp, etc. The popularity of vaporization has left little time for conversation on the art of rolling. However, this minimalist, easily accessible, tried-and-true consumption method still reigns supreme globally. The creative potential and skill required to craft a functional roll is celebrated among many hemp enthusiasts.
"puff, puff, pass"
What is a blunt?
A blunt is a roll with hemp inside a cigar or blunt wrap. These wraps are made out of tobacco, which adds a buzz and energy to your hemp high.
Typically, they’re bigger than joints and last a lot longer.
What is a joint?
Joints are arguably the most iconic way to consume hemp. Small and portable, you can take them anywhere and spark up where you please.
They consist of hemp rolled up inside a thin rolling paper that is usually white, but novelty papers come in all colors and flavors. Papers can be big, small, made out of hemp, rice, paper, etc. There are all kinds of variants.
Joints often have a crutch, or filter, which adds stability to the roll and allows you to smoke your joint to the end without burning your fingertips.
What is a spliff?
A spliff is like a joint, but it has tobacco and hemp mixed together in a rolling paper. They usually have more tobacco than a blunt, so will have even more of the energetic, buzzy effects of tobacco. Spliffs usually have crutches too.
Spliff smokers can alter the ratio of hemp and tobacco to their preference—lots of hemp with a little tobacco, lots of tobacco with a little hemp, or somewhere in between.
