When you want to tell someone you love them, you get them a dozen roses — when you want to tell someone you really, really love them, you roll them a rose petal blunt.
It might sound crazy, but as tobacco-laden blunt wraps continue to fade into obscurity, stoners are finding creative ways to continue enjoying their favorite method of smoking without any potentially harmful chemicals. In fact, many cannabis lovers are making the switch from wraps to rose petals for a special occasion or that extra special someone.
So whether you’re showing yourself some TLC, treating a friend for a birthday, or showing off for Valentine’s Day, read on to discover everything you need to know about how to roll a rose petal blunt.
What You Need
If you want to roll a blunt with rose petals, it does take a few tools and little finesse. So let’s start by gathering everything you need to set you up for success.
It’s not every day you roll up with rose petals so make sure to fill that bad boy with only the best of the best. Ask any of our budtenders, and they’ll know exactly what will fit the bill.
The grind of your herb plays an important role in how the finished product smokes. For a smooth smoking experience, finely ground weed is the key so spare your fingers this time around.
Organic Rose Petals
Organic is the keyword here. You definitely want to invest in pesticide-free flowers to make sure that you’re not inadvertently ingesting any potentially hazardous chemicals. Go the extra mile and rinse the petals once you get them anyway, just to ensure that there isn’t any mystery debris lurking on the surface.
In order to make the flower petals rollable, they’ll need to be slightly dried out in the oven. Grab a small baking sheet that you can lay the petals on as you dry them out for just a few minutes.
There are a lot of moving parts in this process, so a rolling tray will help keep things nice and organized.
When rolling a traditional blunt, most people use their saliva or water to seal it. Rolling a rose petal joint is slightly more complicated, so although it is not entirely necessary, a sticky concentrate like sauce or live resin can act as the glue for your blunt. Just keep in mind that cannabis concentrates are incredibly potent and should be approached with caution.
How to Roll a Rose Petal Blunt
Now that you have everything you need, follow this step-by-step guide and you’ll have a rose blunt in no time.
- Preheat your oven to 250°F.
- Grind up your weed. Roughly a gram should do the trick but it’ll vary from person to person.
- Arrange three rose petals in an overlapping row on your baking sheet. Usually, three is enough for a blunt but you are free to toast an extra one or two just in case.
- Once the oven is ready, toast your rose petals. As we mentioned above, rose petals need a light toasting to convert their silky texture to a slightly dried medium for weed. When they’re ready, they’ll appear slightly wilted and you can see the moisture collect under the petals when you lift them off the tray. Remove them from the oven immediately
- Line up some ground flower down the center of your row of petals.
- Gently roll up your petals as you would a normal blunt by tucking one edge of your rose wrap under the other and licking the edges to form a seal. If you’re choosing to go the concentrate route, heat it up a little until it’s sticky and carefully line the sealable edge with it.
- If the blunt feels a little soggy, place your rose blunt back in the oven for a few seconds to dry it out. A few seconds should do it so be careful not to cook it.
- Then, take your rose blunt out and let it cool for at least two minutes.
- All that’s left is to spark up and feel the love.
No matter what you’re celebrating, nothing will set the mood quite like a rose petal blunt.
