Blunt is a type of cigarette paper and a word used to describe large joints. A Blunt paper is a natural tobacco leaf layer, which can be aromatized to bring flavors to our weed.

It was the rappers and hip-hop singers from the United States who first used this rolling paper to roll their joints. It was a good way to go unnoticed, since it looked more like a cohiba cigar of the kind produced in Cuba.



⚠️ Blunt definition



The origin of the concept has to do with a company in Philadelphia called Philies Blunt, which became famous for marketing cigarettes rolled in tobacco leaves and with a size above the standard. The fact that some American artists of reference in the 80’s chose this type of paper to mask their weed joint caused its fast popularization among cannabis users.

At that time, some companies saw a good market opportunity and began to manufacture Blunt-style cannabis rolling papers of the same size and material, and new brands began to emerge already focused on supplying pot smokers.

It means something like “dullingor filling, and the word basically describes how it is used. Sometimes it comes with the word “Wraps” which means covering or casing, so the meaning of Blunt Wraps would be something like “casing to fill“, which in this case would be cannabis.


Blunt Vs regular smoking paper Joint

The differences between Blunt paper and regular paper are several: taste, consistency, combustion and also toxicity. From our point of view, Blunt paper is not as harmful as rice paper, even though the latter does not contain chlorine. As for the taste, it is quite different from one to the other, you can check that by making a joint of the same weed with each one.
