Nothing beats the feeling of chilling solo or with a group of friends and a finely rolled blunt in hand. What makes the sesh even better, though, is the type of wrap that you choose. Do you really want to be gutting cheap gas station cigars just to get a tobacco leaf to roll with?
Probably not, especially with the wide variety of quality alternatives available today. If this is your first time exploring a better standard for blunt wraps, this is for you. Today we’ll discuss what makes a good blunt wrap, and how you can choose the best one for your next rolling and smoking sesh.
What Makes a Quality Blunt Wrap?
There are a few characteristics that define a good blunt wrap. The first is the quality of the tobacco (or non-tobacco alternative). You want your wraps to be made of high-quality material for the best smoking experience. You also want your wraps to burn evenly so that you don’t get the dreaded “canoe”, which is when the blunt burns unevenly and starts to fall apart.
Choosing a good flavor is also important when it comes to a quality wrap. You’ll want a flavor that tastes appealing to you while also complementing the natural taste of the flower. Finally, you should look for wraps with easy rollability so that you can save time during the rolling process and avoid wasting any weed that you’ve spent your money on.
Types of Blunt Wraps
Traditional Tobacco Wraps
Traditional wraps are made from tobacco leaf and offer a variety of flavors. These wraps are known for their slow burn and the extra nicotine hit they provide. Most of the time, tobacco wraps are taken from gutting a cheap cigar and rolling flower into the leaf. This process can be time-consuming and any wrong move could potentially derail the entire sesh.
Let’s also not leave out the health implications involved in consuming tobacco. Beyond nicotine being an addictive chemical, there are other health implications with tobacco products that could create issues over time. Instead, you can find plenty of tobacco-free alternatives made specifically for enjoying cannabis with.
Non-tobacco wraps replicate the style and function of tobacco wraps without all of the unwanted side effects. You can find plenty of them crafted with safer materials like Twisted Hemp’s hemp paper wraps. These come prepackaged to stay as fresh as possible before you’re ready to start your sesh.
Flavored wraps come in a variety of flavors to complement or contrast with the flavor of the cannabis. While some people like to gut flavored cigars to add a flavor to their blunt, you can also use a flavored non-tobacco option like Skunk Brand’s terpy hemp wraps or Twisted Hemp’s Twisted Palm line with enhanced features for an even richer experience with a bolder taste.
What to Consider When Choosing a Blunt Wrap
Personal Health Considerations
Tobacco blunt wraps contain nicotine which can be harmful to health over time. If you’re avoiding tobacco, non-tobacco alternatives made of hemp or eco-friendly paper would be a better choice.
If you are looking for some extra taste in your blunts, you might prefer a flavored wrap. However, while many people enjoy the additional flavor, some purists believe that flavored wraps mask the true taste of the cannabis and prefer unflavored options.
Rolling Skill Level
Blunt rolling is a skill that can take a while to master. If you’re a rolling novice, look for wraps that are easier to roll. Typically leaf wraps are more difficult for beginners, while processed wraps are easier for people who do not roll frequently.
Pairing Cannabis with Wraps
Understanding Your Cannabis
There are 3 major categories that all strains fall into: Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. Sativa provides more energy and creativity, while Indica gives you a mellow and relaxed high, and hybrids are a combination of the two.
Typically, Sativa strains are recommended for morning and midday seshes while Indicas are perfect for unwinding after a long day or for relaxing before bed. Hybrids offer the best of both worlds and are great for someone that wants a consistent experience at any hour.
Pairing Your Cannabis with Blunt Wraps
For the perfect smoking experience, try to match the flavor and characteristics of a wrap with the strain of weed you’re using. For instance, strong-flavored wraps might pair better with potent strains, while milder wraps could complement more delicate and less terpy strains. Look at the terpene profile of your strain for more insight into your flavor pairings. For example, one that is limonene-rich will have a brighter and more citrusy taste. Pair this with a minty flavor for a mojito-type taste or with mango to add a deeper, smoother sweetness underneath.
Trying New Things and Personal Preference
There’s no exact science when it comes to finding the best blunt wrap and cannabis pairings. What one person finds enjoyable might not be the same for another, so you should try different combinations to discover your personal preferences. Since blunt wraps are pretty affordable, you could buy multiple flavors at one time to see which ones taste best with your favorite strains.
Storing Your Blunt Wraps
Properly storing blunt wraps will help maintain freshness and flavor over time. Humidity-controlled containers or simple zip-lock bags can help keep wraps fresh for longer periods. Do not keep them in a place where they could be exposed to consistent moisture humidity, such as in a bathroom or in a room without air conditioning.
Where to Buy Blunt Wraps
Blunt wraps can be found anywhere from local dispensaries to online headshops. Wherever you decide to buy yours, make sure it’s from a reputable retailer that provides safe, high-quality products from brands that have a credible presence in the industry.
As we mentioned before, a quality blunt wrap is already pretty affordable and readily available. Don’t cut corners on your wraps and go for the quickest and cheapest option like a low-quality cigar from a corner store if you want the best experience during your sesh.
