One of the fun things about the cannabis world is that there are always new trends that make fairly standard activities more fun (or different, at the very least). We would like to introduce and/or acquaint you with one of these quirks in the world of blunts. Meet the blunt vortex; a hollow bleezy that might remind you of a long, thin donut. Why do this? Vortex blunts are known to have a smoother draw and deliver bigger hits.

However, first of all: a blunt is different from a cut in that it’s rolled in cigar paper, not your typical rolling paper. To roll your own blunt, buy a cigar, empty the tobacco and reroll it with cannabis instead. Many consumers like blunts because they tend to last longer than your standard joint, and wraps often come in different shapes, sizes, and flavors.

Please note: blunts contain tobacco, so if you prefer to keep your weed nicotine-free, blunts aren’t for you. There are, of course, tobacco-free options (more on that below), but we wanted to note that the traditional blunt wrap will indeed contain nicotine.

Let’s say you’re ready to launch a vortex blunt. How do you do? Let’s dig.

Choose your blunt wrap, rod and grinder

You could buy a cigar, bother to slice it and discard the tobacco, and roll your vortex blunt from there. As we mentioned before, blunt wraps usually contain tobacco, but we’re always happy to suggest healthier alternative rolls up like Palm Leaves Blunts Where High hemp herbal wraps.

Or make it easy for yourself and buy a Vortex Natural Blunt Wrapwhose wrappers include a wrapper and the round stick you’ll need to create the hollow and achieve the donut effect.

But let’s say you’re a handyman. The most important tool you’ll need – other than the blunt casings – is a long rod thin enough to work inside the casing. We think a thin, round wand will do. To make your rolling experience even easier, we suggest using a rolling tray if you have one. Now that you have your tools, you are ready to roll.

How to Roll a Vortex Blunt

  1. Grind your weed: The most efficient way to break cannabis into small pieces is to use a grinder. Additionally, when using a grinder and not your fingers, these cannabinoid-laden trichomes stay on your flower and don’t get lost on your fingers
  2. Prepare your wrap: If you purchased blunt paper, simply lay it out. If you are emptying a cigar, use a razor blade to cut the cigar lengthwise and empty the tobacco. If you wish, you can keep some of the tobacco for a seal later, or just throw
  3. Place the stick in the middle of the wrapping paper (if using the Vortex natural blunt wrap, the stick will be pre-placed)
  4. Fill the wrap with grass, making sure to place it around and under the stem. Make sure the rod is centered.
  5. Roll the wrap between your fingers until it forms a cylinder. You can use the rod as a support. Roll it tight, trying to keep the rod centered
  6. Lick and seal the wrap.
  7. Let it dry. Do not skip this step!
  8. Once dry, carefully remove the stick from the packaging

So ! You should have a nice donut shape in your hollow blunt. But fear not if you didn’t succeed the first time. Blunts are a little easier to roll than joints, but as they say, practice makes perfect.

Finally, light it up and enjoy.
