Stoners Like Blunts. Yep, if there’s one thing we took away from our Blunt vs. Joint TWITTER POLL…it was that a whole fuckin’ lot of our followers dig them blunts. Blunts are “heaven in the shape of a cigar,” said one. Or two. Or 50. Shit…all of ‘em said some shit like that. It wasn’t even close. So, what’s a blunt you ask? No, it’s not a hollowed-out cigar…it’s one that’s been gutted, filled with weed, then re-rolled.
In the early days of blunt-crafting, tobacco was mixed with the herb, but nowadays blunts are almost exclusively WEED-ONLY. All, “Pimps”, “Playas”, “Macks”, and true “OG’s” will testify that the blunt is the only real way to smoke weed…in public.
Lotsa blunt-lovin’ stoners say that compared to plain ol’ rollin’ papers, blunts last longer, taste better, are easier to roll, give bigger hits, don’t go out as much as papers, they’re thicker, don’t run as much, they look tastier and they can contain much more herb than you can fit into a joint.
Read some poetic shit this stoner said on Urban Dictionary, “If you’re a fan of joints but have never smoked a nice blunt, do yourself a favor and go to your nearest gas station and pick up some blunt wraps. They come in all different flavors; Mango, Peach, Strawberry, Grape, etc. Lay down your finest herb in the wrap and don’t be afraid to get that bitch as wet as it needs to be…keeping it moist during the smokage makes it last even longer. Once it’s ready to go, stick it in your mouth, apply some flame, and damn now you’re smoking like a real OG”
But, not all OG’s smoke blunts. In fact some of ‘em are all anti-blunt and stuff. In fact Wiz Khalifa, who allegedly smokes $10,000 worth of weed a month, hates blunts nowadays. “I don’t smoke any blunts,” he told Complex mag. “I used to smoke blunts, but when you smoke the quality of weed that we smoke, you want to taste all that weed. You don’t want the blunt to get in the way. Plus blunts are real bad for you. They make your body ache, you be coughing up brown shit. I need my voice. I don’t want to have blunt damage.”
You think that’s harsh, Curren$y—who has sorta inspired this new-age blunt backlash, says FUCK BLUNTS! “Blunts make your back hurt and everything. Don’t shave years off your life with them blunts,” he has said.
That “takin’ years off your life” is pro’lly due to the tobacco content in blunt wrappers, which obviously carry with ‘em all the nastiness associated with tobacco and nicotine. But that doesn’t stop Million-Swisher-Blunt-Smokin’, local Oakland girl and MTV darlin’ Kreayshawn from smokin’ them blunts.
Anyhow, though…all this talk about blunts being STUFF STONERS LIKE and shit, has got us thinkin’ that we need to hold a contest about blunts…and uhm, smoke a few ourselves right now…stay tuned.
