As the marijuana industry booms and new products make their way onto the waiting shelves of dispensaries statewide, several hallowed weed traditions find themselves fallen by the wayside. Today, you can walk into almost any recreational dispensary and purchase a pre-rolled joint. You can purchase a freshly baked pot brownie or a weed-spiked beverage. We’ve all come a long way from shady dealings and unsatisfying purchases, but also a long way from doing our own preparations for weed consumption — and for this, we are all both infinitely thankful and a bit nostalgic. With all the new products available to us, have we become less ingenuitive?
For instance, when was the last time you broke open a Swisher, emptied out its rich fragrant tobacco and re-rolled it full of plush, sticky, buds? We’re not talking blunt wrappers here, we’re talking about a classic blunt. If it’s been a while, hopefully, this blog has gotten your fingers twitching to twist another one up for old time’s sake, and if you’re new to this, just know that rolling a perfect blunt is a lifetime skill that will almost always garner you a modicum of respect.
Despite the considerable appreciation we have for the classic blunt, we recognize the convenience and ease of using a blunt wrapper or blunt paper. But it’s important to remember the classics.
