A Backwoods Blunt is a blunt that’s rolled in an all-natural tobacco leaf. Backwoods wraps come in a variety of flavors, including honeyberry and even limited-edition dark stout, and as such are some of the most expensive wraps on the market right now. One notable difference in rolling technique is that instead of having to cut a slit all the way down the entire blunt wrap, with a Backwoods wrap you can simply unroll it for easier repacking.
To roll a Backwoods Blunt you will need:
- Your Backwoods wrap
- The herb blend or weed strain that you want to fill the blunt up with
- A big grinder
- The Nuggy (optional)
- A rolling tray or mat
- Grind some up! Take the flower you prefer, break it up into smaller pieces, and grind it all the way up in your big grinder.
- Gently open up the wrap. It’s easiest to do this by using the Nuggy. Using the knife attachment, or any other sharp tool that you can cut with, make a small incision about an inch long down one end of the wrap.
- Peel the leaf off- Your goal during this step is to fully peel the wrap apart so that you can remove its insides. Starting by gently lifting up one of the edges you created by cutting the wrap at one end. Hold tight as you slowly spin and rotate the wrap to cause it to come unstuck and unfold.
- After the leaf part of the wrap is fully peeled off, discard the innards or the tobacco guts that you don’t want to smoke.
- Next, fill the leaf up with your favorite herb. Spread it out lengthwise and pack it in so that it’s already sitting in the right shape when you go to roll it. This ensures even burning of your Backwoods Blunt.
- Roll it up. Fold one side under the other and begin spinning to roll it all the way up. Make sure it’s not too tight, or too loose- it has to be just right. You don’t want to get no smoke at all, or keep having your Backwoods Blunt go out on you.
- Lick underneath the still-exposed edge and press down to seal the blunt.
- Trim it up. Using your Nuggy’s scissor attachment, cut off any excess leaf so that your wrap has an even edge at the end of the blunt, and at the mouthpiece.
- Admire your fat Backwoods Blunt and all your hard work that went into rolling it, then light it up & smoke it down!
Smoking Hot Toking Tips
- A few hits in to a Backwoods Blunt and you’ll already notice it’s harsher than a traditionally rolled blunt. Non-tobacco smokers may cough more than usual and/or begin to feel lightheaded from the effects of the tobacco in the leaf.
- Be super careful during the peeling step to not rip your wrap up while trying to unroll it! Backwoods Blunts can be harder to roll also- be sure to prevent any unwanted rips or tearing by taking your time and being patient.
