Blunts or Joints? Which one should you pick?
When it comes to consuming cannabis, there are several different methods to choose from, including smoking a prerolled blunt or a regular joint. While both methods involve smoking cannabis, there are some key differences in the experience and effects. In this blog post, we will explore the difference between smoking a blunt vs a regular cannabis joint, and why someone would pick one over the other.
A blunt is a type of cigar that has been emptied of its tobacco and refilled with cannabis or cannabis rolled into a hemp wrap. Blunts are typically larger than regular cannabis joints and can hold more cannabis, making them a popular choice for those who want a longer-lasting, more potent smoking experience. Blunts are also known for their distinct flavour, which comes from the cigar wrapper and can enhance the flavour of the cannabis. Infused blunts are another popular way to consume as they can be infused with live resin, hash or even oils.
On the other hand, a regular cannabis joint is simply a paper rolled with cannabis, without any additional tobacco or flavouring. Joints are typically smaller than blunts and hold less cannabis, making them a popular choice for those who want a quick and easy smoking experience. Joints are also a great option for those who want to enjoy the flavour and aroma of the cannabis without any additional flavours or aromas. Hemp papers can be thicker and alter the taste of the cannabis you are consuming.
One of the main differences between smoking a blunt vs a regular cannabis joint is the potency and duration of the effects. Blunts tend to be more potent due to the larger amount of cannabis they can hold, and the addition of tobacco may enhance the effects of the cannabis (not something we recommend if you want to get the full flavour from your cannabis). Additionally, blunts tend to burn slower than regular joints, resulting in a longer-lasting smoking experience. Ask staff at anyone of our Affinity Cannabis Stores for assistance finding a blunt or preroll that works best for you.
Another difference between smoking a blunt vs a regular cannabis joint is the flavour and aroma. Blunts have a distinct flavour that comes from the cigar wrapper, which can enhance the flavour of the cannabis. Regular cannabis joints, on the other hand, offer a more pure and natural flavour and aroma, allowing you to fully experience the unique qualities of the cannabis strain.
Ultimately, the choice between smoking a blunt vs a regular cannabis joint comes down to personal preference and desired effects. If you are looking for a longer-lasting, more potent smoking experience with a unique flavour, a blunt may be the way to go. If you want a quick and easy smoking experience that allows you to fully experience the natural flavours and aromas of the cannabis, a regular joint may be the better option.
In conclusion, smoking a blunt vs a regular cannabis joint offers different experiences and effects. By understanding the differences between the two, you can make an informed decision and choose the method that best suits your needs and preferences. As always, consume responsibly and consult with a healthcare professional before using cannabis for medicinal purposes.
