How to roll a rose blunt

Now that you are all caught up on what a rose blunt is, it is time that you learn how to make one yourself. While they may not be popular yet, their fame is expected to skyrocket as the benefits of choosing a flower blunt over any average rolling papers. Rolling a rose petal blunt is a bit tricky to learn but with a little time and patience rolling with rose petals is a skill that anyone can master.

Step 1- Selecting a rose

The most challenging part of rolling a rose joint is, of course, selecting the ideal rose petals. Which one you choose should depend on a few things. Every single rose if grown organically is safe to smoke. The kind itself is irrelevant. Buying fresh roses is the easiest way to buy them if you are looking for a specific aroma but buying petals by the box is more economically friendly and doesn’t require the time and every spent harvesting them. Regardless of which way you go a few things to watch out for are brittle petals, holes, or a generally unhealthy appearance. Avoid anything that looks like it isn’t fresh or preserved correctly.

Step 2- Drying

Preparing rose petals for your rose blunt will always require baking to dry them. The length of time this will take will depend on the overall moisture content in the petals. There is no way to predict exactly how long drying your petals will take to dry, so the best way to learn is to bake 2-4 petals at a time. Set either a conventional or convection oven to broil and place the petals on a small baking sheet. Bake them for ten to fifteen seconds at a time until you reach a dryness that makes the petals stick together with a small amount of moisture from the edges.

Step 3- Preparing the paper

To roll a rose petal joint, you will need enough flower petals that once connected will cover the same amount of space as the paper you would normally use. A bit larger if you want to stay on the safe side. You can always trim the excess off after. Begin by laying all your petals overlapping until you have the size and shape you want. Then pick each one up and lick the edges of it to stick it to the surrounding petals. This may take a bit of time, but once you get the hang of it can be done relatively quickly. If you don’t want to lick them, you can use a q-tip and drops of water or any cannabis concentrate or tincture. Once finished bake for an additional five to ten seconds.

Step 4- Rolling a rose blunt

Rolling is the easiest part. Cut up your weed just as you would to prepare for any kind of smoking cannabis and fill the rose petal paper. The biggest difference to expect when using rose petals is that they aren’t a solid piece regardless of how well they stick so you must be gentle. Tuck the one side of the paper underneath the other and roll it snugly. Now a small lick or dab of liquid to keep the paper in place and you are ready to enjoy homemade rose blunt like a true marijuana enthusiast.

What is a rose blunt? –A rose blunt, AKA flower blunt or rose petal blunt, isn’t much different than any average blunt or joint you might roll. The difference being it is rolled using rose petals instead of traditional marijuana rolling papers.

Benefits/Side effects of smoking rose petals- While many new fads often come with adverse side effects when used in the process of smoking cannabis, smoking rose petals is quite a healthy alternative to the regular papers and blunt tobacco leaves that are most commonly used.

It was just another September day in 2017 when Twitter legend @Simple_Sasha posted a wildly popular tutorial on rolling a not-so-common blunt made out of rose petals. People immediately began testing their own, and the rose blunt became an iconic part of weed culture practically overnight.

If regular blunts are great, then rose blunts are even better. Rose petal extractions are used in candles, essential oil blends, body products, and more because it is inherently soothing. Cannabis (in case you hadn’t heard) also has calming properties, making the combination of the two irresistible.

In fact, rose and cannabis share chemicals, like floral-smelling nerolidol and other aromatic terpenes that give both weed and rose blooms their intoxicating smells. So it makes perfect sense to get intoxicated with both. This is also why the video resonated so much — not only are colorful petals more aesthetically pleasing than a plain blunt wrap, they smell worlds better.

What you’ll need

Before rolling anything, you’ll want to make sure you have:

  • High-quality flower
  • Pesticide-free rose petals
  • Grinder
  • Small baking sheet

If you’re looking for rosy-feeling cannabis to put into your rose blunt, there is no shortage of options. Classics like Jack Herer and Chemdawg are hugely popular, and they deserve a luxurious petal wrapping.

How to roll a rose blunt

Step 1: Grind up your bud. About a gram of flower should be enough to roll one rose blunt.

Step 2: Arrange three rose petals in an overlapping row on a baking sheet.

Step 3: Toast your rose petals. Rose petals need a light toasting to convert their silky-soft selves to a slightly dried (and rollable) medium for weed, so gently bake them at 250°F for a few minutes.

Step 4: Once the petals are done toasting, line up some ground flower down the center of your row of petals.

Step 5: 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.

Step 6: Once you’re done rolling, place your rose blunt back in the oven for roughly 10 seconds.

Step 7: After the briefest of stints in the oven, take your rose blunt out and let it rest for at least two minutes.

Step 8: Light up and enjoy.

Final tips

Again, make sure you use organic rose petals or rose petals from a garden you know hasn’t come in contact with pesticides. You don’t want to be smoking any potentially hazardous chemicals.

If you’re struggling to get a tidy wrap, try wrapping heated petals around a cannagar tube. Purple Rose Supply makes a convenient model, including tutorials for various types of wraps. Intrepid and experienced consumers may even feel inspired to add concentrates or kief.

If your rose petals simply refuse to roll up, fear not. Just crush up a few petals and add them to your usual joint or blunt. Now you can stop and smell the roses while you puff.
