Many prefer the added buzz created by the mix of cannabis and its tobacco wrap, while others appreciate the variety of flavors available in a lot of cigarillos and blunt wraps.
Now that you’ve got your blunt rolled, all that’s left is to light the end and enjoy with some friends!
Fill the empty tobacco wrapping with ground cannabis. For a standard size cigarillo one to two grams is plenty, though if you’re sharing your blunt, are an experienced roller, or are using a blunt wrap, you should be able to fit a fair amount more.
Common cigarillos you can find at most corner stores are:
- Swisher Sweets
- Black & Mild
- Dutch Masters
- White Owl

To roll your blunt you’ll need a tobacco wrap. Traditionally, connoisseurs will empty a cigarillo (like Swisher Sweets, Phillies, or Backwoods), but these days you can find empty wraps at the corner store.

Rolling a blunt comes wit its own nuances that maintain function and tradition, so use our step-by-step guide to learn how to roll your own.
