When you think about it, what is a blunt or a hemp wrap really?
Back when I first started smoking weed my favorite blunts were Garcia Vegas’ because you could actually see the veins of the tobacco leaf:
And they are easy to roll but now I’ve turned over a new leaf (pun intended) and switched to a healthier alternative with hemp wraps. My favorite being Juicy Jays which clearly states on the package are “made from natural toasted hemp.”
Making it become clearer and clearer that really a blunt or hemp wrap is really just a leaf! So if you’re like me and have gotten sick of dealing with the “plugs”and went on to grow your own cannabis:
With Croptober right around the corner, then you should have plenty of cannabis leaves (fan leaves) laying around right?
So why not use them to roll!?!?!
To be honest I was surprised that it actually worked but it did!
And here’s how I did it:
- Set your oven to broil.
- Grind the herb that your going to use to fill your DIY blunt with and set it to the side.
- Grab your cannabis leaf that your going to roll. Put your fan leaf (you only need one of the 5-7 points) in the oven for 15 seconds. You want to dry it out some but not completely.
- Now go ahead and fill with your herb and roll as normal. It’s kind of thin but totally doable.
- Once rolled place your rolled blunt back in the oven for another 15 seconds to set.
- Now light it up and enjoy!
It smokes just like a regular roll and naturally contains CBD! I will say that it turns off a lot but I had the same compliant about Vegas’ so it’s not really that big of a deal and that’s what’s up! Stay lit fam!
The question isn’t will my kids smoke weed, it’s when and how? Because we all know it’s inevitable. My hope however is that the new generation strictly vapes. Because vaping is healthier. And we want the best for our kids don’t we?
These are the facts, cannabis isn’t bad for you, it’s actually great and has lots of benefits. But the act of smoking is. When one smokes harsh toxins are released that can damage your lungs and cause cancer. Haven’t you ever felt like a blunt was harsh on you?
I’ve smoked a lot of blunts, and still do. But I’ve switched to hemp wraps instead of tobacco blunts because all those Phillies, Swishers and Garcia Vegas were getting too harsh on my throat. Though I do see a significant difference with hemp wraps, there are motivating reasons for the new generation to want to vape instead of smoke:
- The cannabis oils and concentrates, which is what you’d vape, are stronger and more potent. Giving you that high feeling faster and more efficiently.
- There’s barely any odor which means vaping weed makes it less likely you’ll get caught.
- You don’t need a lighter meaning no risk of breathing in any butane or noxious gases from your lighter, starting a fire or worse yet someone stealing your lighter. (joking on that last part)
- Vape pens deliver clean vapor packed with THC eliminating the smoking risks.
- And you save money because vapes last much longer.
Vaping is the way to go for sure. But this how I see things going down with my kids. They are going to want to try smoking. Their mother is Smokette after all and they’ll probably try to smoke my stash.
My plan? To have plenty of hemp wraps to roll, hemp wick to light and vape pens to “smoke” right there along side my stash that definitely includes cannabis oils. Because we can’t control other people, not even our own kids, but we can lead by example, preach and share healthier pothead habits. And most importantly, love them no matter what.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the stoner mommies out there and as always stay lit!
The cleanest and safest blunt on the market with no toxic additives or tobacco and it just happens to test positive for CBD! I explain it to my friends as a blunt made out of weed, just to geek them up, but then I explain further that it’s a hemp wrap that naturally contains CBD. And the number one question that I get is what’s CBD….
So: “There’s a lot more to Weed than just Smoking it”
Cannabiniol (CBD) is the second highest compound to make up cannabis plants, at roughly 40%. While CBD is similar to THC, it’s composition lacks any psychoactive effects typically associated with THC and is purely medicinal. CBD stands out because it is both non-psychoactive and displays a broad range of potential medical applications. These properties make it especially attractive as a therapeutic agent. CBD can actually cure cancer! For more on CBD I recommend reading this article on : Leafly where you can find several different therapeutic benefits to CBD.
But I’m not here to talk about CBD, the subject here is definitely Hemp Wraps. Blunt wraps that contain CBD. Yep, but don’t get too excited. During the process of smoking you are exposing yourself to carbon monoxide, which is known to increase your chances of cancer. However if your going to smoke a blunt Juicy Jays or High Hemp Wraps are your best choice because they have eliminated the increased risks of cancer from inhalation of excess chemicals commonly found in tobacco based blunts. And they are so smooth.
Their method of farming hemp is organic from the seed up. And they pride themselves in not using any formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides. Please keep in mind that these hemp wraps are NOT infused with CBD. They are naturally occurring. Below you can see the tested composition a single Hemp wrap:
It rolls like a blunt, looks like a blunt and burns like a blunt. And though neither regulated or tested under the FDA these blunts just taste better and there’s got to be a reason for that! Definitely you should try out hemp wraps.
