Have you ever heard of or wanted to try a rose blunt? If so, here is your chance! I was perusing instagram a few days ago and someone was filling a cone that had rose petals on it already. Seeing this got me curious and after a few minutes of google, I found a couple of videos and some posts. They all basically outlined the same process of drying the petals and overlapping them to make a large enough wrap. So with mild confidence, I decided to take on the task give it a shot (they made it look easy!).
So after the first try, which failed horrendously, here are some tips from my experience. First I will say, it can be tricky and the petals can be hard to work with if they’re not dry enough or too dry. Arm yourself with patience! After my first disastrous try I stopped and had a bong (maybe have a bowl before rolling 😏). Second, I would cut the end of the petals (the white part where they attach), because it helps the petals be flat which makes rolling WAY easier. Lastly, make sure to use the heat to your advantage, but let it rest. If the petals are not dry enough the blunt will be soggy, but they have to rest a bit after coming out of the oven.
Honestly, I was not sure how it would taste or burn or if it would be enjoyable at all but, I was so pleasantly surprised! I should say that I don’t smoke joints/blunts that often. I either dry herb vaporize my weeds or I bong it. The main reason is the bad aftertaste you get from regular papers. The first thing I noticed is how that gross taste was not present. It actually smoked quite smoothly and slowly; you even need to relight sometimes. It also smells nice and floral with a hint of sweetness. I cannot believe it took me this long to try a rose blunt! There will definitely be more of these in my future. I actually saved a lot of the petals in a book for pressing and future rolling. I hope you guys enjoy the tutorial and try it out! 🌹
