Joint vs Blunt – The Ultimate Guide

Blunts vs Joints, what’s the difference and what do you need to know about each one of them? In this article, we are going to take a look at the ins and outs of blunts vs joints and help you find the perfect choice for you. In addition to giving you the breakdowns you need to understand the lingo better, we are also goings to take a look at some of the specific products and categories and how they can enhance your experience.

What are joint and blunt? And whats the difference?

Even if you’re new to smoking, likely, you’ve probably heard both of these phrases before, let’s look at the difference between the two.
The paper is the main difference. Blunts tend to be rolled using tobacco paper, which is usually brown and quite thick. A joint uses a thinner rolling paper that is generally made from non-wood fibres and is a lot thinner.  Joints also tend to use a filter, so you can smoke it right down to the end without burning yourself. Blunts, on the other hand, do not usually have a filter, so keep an eye on your fingertips!

Are blunts or joints more wasteful?

In this day and age, we are all trying to do our bit for the environment, so this all depends on what you’re wanting to get from your cannabis and how strong you want your smoke to be.
Blunt paper is a lot bigger, therefore you can add a lot more cannabis into this; when compared to its counterpart. Typically, a blunt can hold the amount of cannabis required for 4-6 joints, depending on how big you roll them. If you’re looking at saving paper – blunts are the way to go. Remember to take into consideration that blunt papers are made from tobacco, so look out for tobacco-free blunt papers if you’re wanting to steer clear of the nicotine buzz. It is also worth mentioning that there are some fantastically sustainable joint papers available on the market such as the King Palm Oil Organic Pre-Rolled Leaf which are made mainly from palm leaf rolls and with corn husk filters meaning they can be produced without cutting down trees!








Are joints easier to roll than blunts?

Rolling papers come with a lot fewer complications than blunt papers do as there are not as many factors to pay attention to. Rolling papers have a longer lifespan too, whereas, with blunt papers, you need to make sure your paper is fresh. If they’re exposed to nature for too long, they can get dry or mouldy. You can also run into issues when removing cigar tobacco to replace with cannabis. If you tear the wrap or it gets accidentally perforated – it becomes near impossible to smoke.

Blunts vs joints pros and cons?

This all comes down to personal preference. Blunts burn a lot slower, therefore, prolonging your smoking experience, this makes them ideal for larger groups as you’ve got more to ‘puff puff pass around’, but they also require more cannabis. Joints burn quicker due to the paper, so they tend to be an ideal option for smoking solo or in a small group, as they are smaller in size and can’t hold as much cannabis.

Is a spliff a joint or blunt?

Spliff’s are slightly different to blunts and joints, purely because they also contain tobacco. A spliff is rolled with regular rolling papers but instead of it containing pure cannabis; there is a mixture of both cannabis and tobacco within the wrap. By doing this you’re adding in a nicotine buzz as well as slightly masking the smell too. You can also add tobacco into a blunt or a joint – it’s more down to personal choice.

Why do people call joints, blunts?

There can be a lot of confusion around the correct terminology to match the wrap. The reason for the confusion between joints and blunts is purely down to branding and slang from cities such as New York and Philadelphia, to name a few. Blunts get their name from Phillies blunt brand cigars, although you can use any brand or type of cigar paper. Depending on where you are in the world, the meaning of a joint and a spliff can be reversed, so the confusion will likely forever continue.

Whats a doobie? And what are Backwoods/Swisher blunts?

There are lots of different slang words for cigarettes containing marijuana, it just depends on your location. You may have heard the word ‘doobie’ in this context. A doobie is just another slang word referring to a joint. Backwoods and Swishers are the same as a regular blunt, the reason for the name refers to the brand of cigars used to roll the blunt, that being Backwoods Cigars and Swisher Sweet Cigars, both of which come in a large variety of flavours ranging from Honey all way down to Russian Cream! You’ll still get a dose of nicotine, too as they’re still made from tobacco leaves.








Just like with a regular blunt, these can dry out! So, keep your blunts stored in optimal conditions. Considering a pack of 5 cigars range from £15-20, it can be a costly mistake! Due to these cigars being imported, you’ll have a hard time buying them in singles. A pack of 5 is the minimum quantity you’ll most likely be able to get your hands on. You may also have a hard time finding some of the less popular flavours. Blunt papers are also an option if you want to save time unrolling and rerolling cigar papers. Blunt papers also come in wide varieties of flavours, depending on the brand.

Are hemp wraps healthier than blunts?

If you aren’t a tobacco smoker, it can be understandable that blunts may be off-putting due to the usage of the tobacco leaf. You may also be wanting to avoid the nicotine rush that comes with blunt papers. If that’s the case, then maybe hemp is for you. Hemp wraps are a lot harder to roll in comparison to blunts, so you may be spending a bit more time on your first few tries when using this type of paper. Hemp wraps also don’t always come with the glue strip like tobacco leaf blunts, so you may find it a bit more difficult to seal. A small price to pay if you want to stay away from tobacco and some fantastic products to choose from such as Jay’s Terpene Enhanced Hemp Blunt Wraps.

Are pre rolls joints or blunts?

A pre roll refers to either a joint, blunt or spliff that has been rolled in advance; so, you don’t have to spend time preparing the wrap before smoking. Pre rolls can be purchased either filled with marijuana and ready to smoke, or an empty casing ready for you to pack yourself. Both of which are purely intended to save you time and get you high quicker. Brands like Futurola offer pre rolled cones ready to pack. These wraps are also tobacco and nicotine-free, so a nice alternative to hemp if you’re still wanting the feel of a blunt. Their papers are refined without any chemical additives as well as using organic Arabic gum and FSC certified paper tips.

What does terpene mean?

As time has passed; different strains of marijuana have emerged and we have lots of different names referring to different strains of weed. We also have a huge variety of smoking apparatus in comparison to years ago. Terpene infused wraps are now increasing in popularity too.  Terpenes are the aromatic compounds found in plants that give them their distinct smell, this is why we have characteristic scents for many different varieties of plants and why cannabis has such a potent smell.
You can buy a wide variety of terpene infused rolling papers; Futurola teamed up with Mike Tysons brand, Tyson Ranch, to bring us the Toad Terpene Blunt Wrap. The unusual name derives from Tyson’s favourite cannabis strain – The Toad. This is a strain that was derived from two different strains, those being chemdawg og and girl scout cookies.









Does CBD Isolate contain terpenes?

Cannabidiol oil, also known as CBD oil, has become increasingly popular in recent years and with that, comes many different varieties. CBD can contain small traces of the compound THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol – this is the compound that gets you high. CBD has been used for many reasons; it can be used to reduce anxiety, relieve unmanageable pain, reduce PTSD symptoms, the list goes on. CBD Isolate is one of the cheapest entries into trying out these oils, although as suggested in the name – this is the isolated compound. CBD isolate is made by pulling CBD from the plant and removing everything else. It doesn’t contain any THC so it won’t get you high, it also lacks the beneficial terpenes to provide unique tastes and smells.

With the everchanging laws and overall acceptance of marijuana becoming more of the norm, expect to see a lot more variation in types of weed and smoking accessories to hit the shelves soon, as well as an influx of new slang to go along with it.

Is the Volcano still the best Vaporizer?

There are plenty of quality vaporizers on the market. A quick Google or Amazon search will reveal many options, from cheaper versions made from lower grade materials to the more expensive, investment pieces. 

However, the Volcano Vaporizer offers a unique technology that is now patented. The valve takes the aromatic air and transfers it into a balloon. This air is then separated from the device and inhaled. In terms of functionality, you won’t find it better on the market. 

Volcano Hybrid Vaporizer

The Volcano HYBRID vaporizer is the third-generation version of Storz & Bickel’s seminal desktop vaporizer.



Which Vaporizer is the healthiest?

When you vape, you inhale steam – or vapour – rather than the tar and other unhealthy byproducts that are present when you smoke. 

If you’re health-conscious – and let’s face it, who isn’t nowadays – vaping is going to be a better option as it’s better for your lungs when compared with smoking.  

The Volcano vaporizer is not harmful to anyone in the same room as you, and you can be assured that any damaging effects are also minimal to you, the user. 

Does a volcano vaporizer smell?

We are always being asked this question! And the short answer is that you will be much more discreet in terms of smell with any vaporizer you buy than smoking. This is because vaporizers don’t actually produce smoke! They create – wait for it – VAPOR! It’s a small but hugely significant difference. 

As a general rule, you can be assured that the smell produced by vaping is – on average – only 20% of the scent produced by smoking

As the world becomes more health-conscious, many people who vape are aware of the impact of their smoke on those around them. We understand that the last thing you want is for everyone around you to be bothered by the smell of your Vaporizer.

How long can you leave a volcano Vaporizer on?

The great news is that you can leave your Volcano Vaporizer on for long periods without having to worry. This is because when you heat up your Volcano, the internal parts come to a stable temperature that remains that way. What’s more, the Vaporizer is naturally cooled by the air that is circulating around. 

The key to ensuring no issues or damage is to sit your Volcano on a hard surface. You’ll want to make sure that the cooling vents are clear or not covered. If all of this is in place, then you can leave your Volcano on indefinitely. However, please don’t leave it unattended and be sure to turn it off if you leave the room for a period or leave the house. 

Which company Vaporizer is best?

Storz and Bickel are some of the most widely known vaporizer companies in the world. They are renowned for their iconic Volcano, which offers the perfect blend of functionality and features, retro design and world-class German engineering.

Which company Vaporizer is best storz and bickel

This lightweight, handheld unit is both powerful and robust in its design ensuring that you get what you pay for.

How much is the Volcano Vaporizer?

The Classic Volcano Vaporizer costs £289.99. It is currently on sale, with £9 off. Volcano Vaporizers can cost anywhere between £50 and £500, depending upon the features you are looking for, and the accessories you choose, meaning the Classic Volcano Vaporizer is a great mid-range price for a high-quality piece of kit. 

Is the PAX 3 a good Vaporizer?

The PAX 3 has now been on the market for many years and remains one of – if not the – most reliable portable vaporizers out there. 

The reason for this is the quick heat-up time, as well as the options to tailor your sessions using the Smartphone App. 

And, with its long battery life, it’s literally the perfect everyday vape! 

Pax 3 Vaporizer

One of the new features of the Pax 3 is its compatibility with both loose leaf herbs and oily concentrates with the addition of a new concentrate insert.

How long can you use a Volcano bag? 

This is going to depend on how often you use your Volcano. However, it’s probably a safe bet to say every two weeks is about right for the average user. If you’re a light user, you could go to a month and if you’re a heavy user, then use a fresh one every week. Try this out as a general guide but just amend it according to your personal preference and changing usage levels.

Made from the highest quality materials, the huge leaf bag will make your Vaporizer stand out among the rest.

How to clean your Volcano?

This really depends on your personal preference and, of course, the frequency with which you use your Volcano. It’s also worth noting that not all of the parts of your Volcano will need cleaning at the same time. Some need a regular top-up, whereas others can be left for up to a month. It’s worth keeping an eye on this and scheduling your clean up regime accordingly. 

Cleaning is not only vital for a good vaporizing experience; it’s essential to ensure that your parts maintain their longevity and don’t need replacing unnecessarily. 

Here is a general rule of thumb for the average user. 

Around once a week, it’s vital that you clean out the top screen of the filling chamber. If this is left any longer, you will notice it harms your herbal extraction. 

About every fortnight, you need to take a look at the solid valve. If you leave this any longer you’ll start to notice that it requires much more effort to get a decent hit. Give it a good clean and be sure to replace the bag every two weeks. 

Around every three to four weeks, you will want to check and remove the bottom of the filling chamber. 

Be sure to clean each area thoroughly and then allow everything to air dry completely before re-assembling. 

Some vapers also like to take their vacuum cleaner and vacuum the screen where the air comes out of the base. This can really help to clear out any fine dust and particles that are ordinarily hard to reach. 

What are the benefits of using a vaporizer?

We’ve already mentioned the health risks associated with smoking and how the Volcanic Vaporizer can help to minimize – but of course not entirely eliminate – the risks associated with herb taking. However, it may interest you that this isn’t the only benefit of choosing the Volcano, as there are efficiency and economic gains too. The entire balloon and value system has been designed to ensure that nothing is wasted between inhalations. 

Where can I buy a Volcano?

Click here and head on to the Shiva Online shop, where you can read more about the Volcano Classic Vaporizer and purchase your very own device.

What temperature should a Volcano vaporizer be set at?

This depends on whether your preference is for a ‘smokier’ experience. If so, we would recommend that you start off at around 6.5. You’ll want to leave the heat on at this temperature for approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Then, after each bag filling, you’ll want to turn up the heat just one notch. 

Doing Shisha Pipe the Right Way

New to shisha pipe smoking? Seasoned expert? Have questions? 

Worry not. We at Shiva have you covered! There is a myriad of hookah pipes, accessories, shisha tobacco flavours and sizes to choose from. Not only that, you’ve probably got a host of questions about how to get the best out of your shisha pipe, such as ‘which hookah produces the best smoke’ or ‘which hookah flavour is best?’

In this article, we’ve put together this comprehensive guide to help you make those all-important hookah pipe buying decisions and answer any questions you might have.

So let’s get started.

What is the best shisha pipe brand? 

We are always being asked this question.

Whether you are looking to buy your first hookah pipe, or perhaps you are a seasoned smoker and would like to upgrade your current one… Knowing which hookah will give you the best smoking experience with so much choice online can be tricky. There are modern and traditional shisha pipes to consider, as well as size, materials used and cost.

We’ll wager you’re likely looking for a blend of durability, a smooth smoking experience and an attractive design. When considering which shisha pipe brands to stock, we have explored these key factors, so that when you are buying your shisha hookah, you will get all of this and more!

Rest assured, has everything you’ll need to get started! 

For example, our Mini Shisha Pipe is a portable hookah with an incredible design. It comes with many great features to make it easy for storage and transportation, and its sophisticated but straightforward glass base will look awesome in your home! All parts are made from the highest quality materials and is super-easy to assemble and use.

If, on the other hand, you are looking for more of a statement or taller shisha pipe, then check out the Shisha Sensations AK47 Junior Hookah, which comes in your choice of Gold, Black or Silver and which comes supplied with a single hose and clay hookah bowl. This makes the perfect gift for even the most discerning hookah fan!

Available in Gold, Black & Silver this piece would make an eye catching addition to your lounge, restaurant or shisha bar.

As with any purchase, you will want to do your research and look at hookas that will offer you durability. A quick Amazon search will reveal plenty of hookah brands that might be cheaper but will compromise on quality in terms of the materials used and the manufacturing process. 

Go on recommendation or find a brand that you trust. Because, if you make a good choice in the first instance, there is no reason why your hookah pipe can’t last you a lifetime.

 Are taller hookas better? 

Does a tall hookah really smoke better than a smaller hookah? 

There has been so much debate, disagreement and analysis into whether taller hookahs offer a better smoking experience. 

And here were are to set the record straight once and for all: the idea that taller shisha pipes either cool the smoke better or deliver a better smoking experience is a complete MYTH! 

One common misconception is that taller shisha pipes cool the smoke more than their smaller counterparts. Anyone who has touched a hookah bowl while smoking will know that it can get quite warm once the smoke has left the bowl and entered the shaft. As the smoke travels and is cooled by the air, it will cool somewhat, but the main factor in terms of the temperature of the smoke is the water. In reality, this renders the temperature of the water in the shaft irrelevant, as when it enters the water, it will always adjust, meaning the water is the most influential factor, not whether your hookah is tall or short. 

This means, whichever hookah pipe you ultimately go for, trust your personal preference. However, some people like to display their shisha pipes or have them as ornaments, so if you’re looking for a statement piece, taller may make more of an impression on your guests then check out Galaxy 2 hose shisha 



taller hookas galaxy 2 hose shisha

Measuring 55cm tall, the Galaxy comes included with two hoses, making it ideal for two people to smoke together.


Which hookah produces the most smoke? 

Looking to blow thicker smoke clouds from your hookah??

If – like us – you’re a serious hookah smoker – then it’s likely you’re a fan of the thick smoke cloud, and you want to see the biggest smoke cloud possible! 

It’s true that much of your smoke cloud will come from your preparation and set-up and how you manage the heat (which all comes with time and experience). However, the shisha product you choose is definitely a factor. When selecting your shisha, it’s good to know that a higher glycerin content will help you achieve a thicker smoke. 

Why is my shisha smoke not thick?

So, you’ve chosen a shisha product that has a high glycerin content, and you’ve spent time setting up your shisha pipe to ensure you can control the heat… But you’re still not satisfied with the thickness of your smoke. 

The next thing to look at is the size/thickness of your pipe. Some of the smaller/thinner hoses may be responsible for you not getting the thickness of smoke you’re after and so you might want to try using a wider hose to create more of an open draw from your shisha pipe. 

Which hookah flavour is best? 

If you’re like us, then you love to experiment with your shisha pipe flavours, and with so many to choose from, why not? 

Many popular flavours top the rankings year on year, but our advice would always be to try a few until you settle on the one you like the best. This is really going to depend on your tastebuds and the sort of flavours you enjoy in other areas of your life. Some people like to use fruiter flavours such as Mango, Raspberry and Strawberry and so if this is your bag then check out our product page where you can find these options. 

Similarly, if you’re a fan of a more refreshing smoke, there are plenty of mint-based options that are super-popular and popular with many of our customers. 

Does milk make hookah smoke thicker? 

One of the most common questions we get asked by our customers is, “can I use something other than water in my hookah base?’ And quite often, people will ask whether milk will help to deliver a thicker smoke. 

The answer to the first question is yes. You can use pretty much any liquid in your shisha pipe to enhance the flavour, and like everything, this is down to personal preference. 

However, it won’t necessarily increase the thickness of your smoke. What’s more, while varying your liquid may enhance the flavour profile and, therefore your enjoyment, they can also make it a little more difficult to get a good draw, especially if you are using a slightly thicker liquid, such as milk. 

Does hookah bowl size matter? 

In this situation, size definitely matters! The hookah bowl has a significant influence – along with other factors mentioned below – on how long your smoking session will last. You can get hookah bowls in all sizes and styles. However, the bigger the bowl will determine how long you can smoke for. This is because a smaller bowl will hold less of your tobacco, whereas a larger bowl will naturally offer more space. 

So, if you are looking for a longer smoking session, we would absolutely recommend that you get yourself kitted out with a larger bowl. 

Some of our customers like to vary the length of their smoking sessions and so have decided to get both a smaller and larger bowl for each occasion. This can be a great way to mix up and vary your shisha pipe smoking and is ideal if you invite friends over to enjoy the fun. Check out our new Hubble shisha

Does hookah bowl size matter

The Hubble Shisha is a fantastic single hose shisha pipe, perfect for both first-time users and seasoned smokers alike. Measuring just under 45cm in height.

How long does a small hookah last? 

We reckon this question has been debated since hookahs were invented! And it’s a question we are asked with relative consistency. 

The reason is that there is such a long debate is that the answer is not straightforward, and it will always depend on a number of factors, including the shisha tobacco you are using, how you manage the heat, the hookah bowl you select and of course, your own preference. 

Can you put vodka in a hookah?

Yes! As we’ve previously mentioned, you can use any liquid base in your hookah pipe, but if more cloud is what you are looking for, then switching the liquid isn’t going to make much of a difference. 


Hopefully, having read this article, you have been able to find out the answers to any hookah-related questions you may have. If not, please do give us a shout and contact our customer services team, who are always on hand and happy to help.

From all of us at Shiva, we wish you Happy Smoking!! 

Thee Sherlock Holmes Traditional Pipe

Without in any way detracting from some of the modern eye catching designs to be seen today in pipes, many would argue that the traditional Sherlock Holmes pipe is the only true pipe that a serious smoker would wish to be seen with.

Sherlock PipeWe can all interpret what we consider to be the “true” Sherlock, but there are several variations on the one seen in picture books and on film and television. What never varies in the models which can be seen at our web pages is that in the six pipes shown practically all have the traditional bent stem, which is made in easy clean hygienic plastic, and the “business” end is crafted from traditional highly polished wood.

Pipe smoking has been a tradition in this and many other countries since The Spanish first introduced the pleasures associated with it from around 1559, although British School history would have us believe that it was Sir Walter Raleigh, he did in fact smoke a pipe and for certain introduce potatoes! However we know that tobacco had long been in use in Mexico and the Americas going back in time.

Looking through our web pages you can see the six styles of Sherlock Pipes all of which are priced at £19.99, but if you cannot decide which style you prefer, you can take advantage of our special of a “mix and match” selection of two pipes of your choice for £29.99, a saving to you of just a shade over £10.00, grab a couple and enjoy a relaxing smoke with this traditional and comfortable to use pipe.

Cleaning after use is easy as the Sherlock Pipe disassembles ensuring easy access providing a continued pleasing smoke.

A great feature of this bong is the beautiful honeycomb diffuser, this is not for show, this addition helps in the cooling and important filtration of the smoke which is does by producing tiny bubbles increasing the area to allow for the cooling of the smoke. Ice can be added to the bong through the ice twists which cools the smoke further by a huge amount.

The Chongz Diffuser Bong is now being offered by us in either a choice of Black or Green and it is sized at 11 cm (w) 33 cm (h) 12 cm (d) which we consider makes it an attractive piece to display too.

Each of the two options are being offered at our web pages for £44.99 and we can say that as Chongz has long been associated with high quality borosilicate glass products, this bong certainly lives up to the company’s high reputation and represent excellent value for money.

Smoking Brown Thinnest Paper Rolls

We can offer a huge range of rolling papers all to be found on our web pages. However, we are happy to announce a new selection of unbleached, thinner papers which we believe will give a far more enjoyable un-tainted smoke using either your favourite tobacco or herbal mixture.

Smoking Papers is a brand that has been enjoyed by smoking connoisseurs for over a hundred and forty years, so they certainly know more than most about what makes a good rolling paper that continues to be enjoyed by many. When you are rolling a smoke the last thing that you want is your favourite mixture to be contaminated by the paper, which is why it is so important to have the thinnest paper to hold the tobacco or herbal mix. It should also not taint the smoke by using bleach.









Smoking Brown Papers are 20% thinner than average papers on the market; we know you will immediately notice that when using them. Of course, if you have not used this brand previously, it would make sense to be able to try a sample before bulk buying. We offer this choice with a single packet containing a 4-metre roll for the modest price of just £1.50 when you want to move on to a more competitive bulk buy and we feel sure that you will, we can offer a box of 24 at £28.99 or just £1.20 for a similar 4-metre length.

Why not join the many others that enjoy a cool; untainted smoke by changing to Smoking Brown Papers.

Herbal Tobacco

There can be no doubt that Herbal Tobacco has taken off in a big way it is believed to be a safer way to enjoy a cool smoke and from reports that we have had back from some of our customers they tell us they would not consider going back the standard tobacco products.

Greengo is a very popular product from our friends in the Netherlands perfect on its own, but it does mix well with other smoking products which many have found enhances their smoking experience. The Herbal Tobacco has a great rich and spicy taste and is blended using a mix of papaya, hazel leaf, mint and eucalyptus, how cool is that? The Greengo Herbal Mixture is a really good choice for those smokers who wish to enjoy a smoke, but want to cut out completely their nicotine habit.

An old, but the much-loved favourite in the Herbal Tobacco market is Real Leaf, who have been supplying their smoking products since 2012, during which time they have become the undisputed leader in the field. Real Leaf also works really well if you wish to combine it with other smoking products. The nicotine-free favourite includes a subtle blending of % red raspberry leaves, marshmallow root, and mullein. The feedback we have from user indicates that it provides the smoker with a very delicate texture along with a very pleasant aroma.

As an alternative to the standard Rael Leaf Herbal Tobacco, we offer a Real Leaf with added Wild Damiana, giving the smoker that little bit of added extra. All of the products are offered on our web pages in 30g packs at £19.99.
