In the classic 1995 song by the rapper Redman, “How to Roll a Blunt”, from the album “How High”, his instructions on how to do that are as follows:
“Spread the ism around until the ism reach each end Take your finger and your thumb from tip to tip Roll it in a motion then the top piece you lick, seal it, dry it wit ya lighter if ya gotta. The results, mmm, proper. That’s how you roll a blunt…”
The “ism” is the weed for anyone reading who didn’t know. And these instructions are perfectly fine if you are using an actual tobacco cigar but these days a whole lot of people, myself included, are trying to abstain completely from tobacco and nicotine. So if you’re one of those folks, what can you do when you want to smoke a blunt? Blunts are basically just cannabis wrapped in a big dry tobacco leaf. Is a nicotine free blunt experience even possible? Miraculously the answer is finally – yes. Royal Blunts Hemparillo Tobacco Free Cones are an incredibly simple, useful, and nice tasting solution to this modern problem that faces the cannabis aficionado. Organic, slow burning, and all natural Tobacco and Nicotine Free, Royal Blunts uses only the finest European Hemp for a smooth and slow toke. Each package comes with two pre rolled hemp cones and a small ramrod. In case you’re wondering, a ramrod, also called a scouring stick, is a device used with muzzleloading firearms to push the projectile up against the propellant and was used with weapons such as muskets. With these cones there’s no splitting or licking or resealing like on a cigar paper. You break up or grind the cannabis, and then load the cone like you’re loading a musket and push the weed down with the ramrod. They burn very patiently, are delicious, and so easy and clean to use.
