You may have heard of blunts and blunt wraps before and wondered exactly what they are. A blunt is generally a cigar that has two main parts: the inner leaf that resembles a rolling paper for a cigarette but it is actually tobacco and the outer leaf which is thicker and is spiralled around the inner leaf. In some brands, the leaves may be made from a paper-like tobacco pulp rather than tobacco leaves.
Which Type Of Blunt
The name comes from their tip, which is usually broad or rounded. They were given the name to make sure that they can be differentiated from other cigars that have a pointed tip. With plenty of different brands to choose from, finding one that is right for you should be easy. There are some brands that have been around for a long time but plenty that are new to the market.
You need to note that blunts will burn as quickly as cigarettes and last on average for about five minutes. This is in contrast to a premium cigar that can take up to an hour to burn. Unlike cigars though, you will not have to cut the end as they are either already cut or they have a hole at the end. You will also notice a substantial difference in price, with blunts making less of a dent on your bank balance!
Over the years the word "blunt" has been used to describe any cigar that has been wrapped using a single leaf, but back in the 1970s the spiral binding came into production and although this did not affect the shape, the way the blunt burns is definitely different. The cheaper production method has been beneficial for all concerned, however, and offers a better seal so the smoking experience is a little different.
