Rolling papers are yesterday's news and glass blunts are quickly taking over as a healthier, cheaper, all-around better alternative to regular wraps and cones. They’re just about everywhere, produced by dozens of different companies whom all put their own spin on the device, but they all share something in common, and it’s that their purpose is to make it so that users can smoke weed without having to learn how to, or be bothered with the time-consuming process of rolling.                                                                                                                                                 Here we are going to show you how to use a glass blunt, and we’ve covered every one money can buy.

One-hitters a glass blunt

One-hitters don’t technically deliver quite the same amount of magic as full-sized glass blunts, but they work perfectly when you aren’t up for finishing a whole roll yourself. Most don’t hold any more flower than it takes to get a hit or two, so it’s easy to use and care for this style.

Step 1 – Grind the flower, not too fine though or it might just clog up the device or end up in your mouth. However, you also want to avoid large chunks as that might hinder an even burn.

Step 2 – Grasp the blunt by the mouthpiece and press the tip of it into the freshly ground herb while it’s still in the grinder. Keep pressing it into the loose grind until the end is nice, full, and well-packed.

Step 3 – Spark up the herb and enjoy a good few inhales.

Step 4 – Gently tap the ash-filled tip into an ashtray to empty it.

Step 5 – Pack it and go in for round 2 or give it a rinse with bong solution before storing it away for later use.

Glass blunt tubes

These aren’t the best blunts on the market, because they can be tricky to fill and empty, but they are often a more affordable option when compared to twisty glass blunts, and they typically hold the same amount of weed as a regular blunt wrap.

Step 1 – Use a grinder to bust up enough flower to fill the whole tube.

Step 2 – Packing these devices is tricky and dependent on the tools provided. Some come with a packing stick much like cones, to work the grind downwards through the tunnel. Others may be filled like one-hitters, with small pinches of cannabis and a few taps to drop it all down, or by pressing the end into the grind repeatedly until it’s full.

Step 3 – Light the herb and smoke it just like you would with a regular blunt.


Step 4 – It may take several times of relighting the blunt to get all of the cannabis to burn. This is an unfortunate downside of these tubes, as there isn’t much room for a healthy amount of airflow, especially once the coal reaches deep.

Step 5 – Once you’re done, it’s time to give the tube a few taps on an ashtray which should help to remove most of the ashes. In some cases, a long, narrow wire brush may be needed to get it all out.

Step 6 – Repack the blunt to restart or give the whole thing a good wash before putting it in storage.

Twisty glass blunts

These are generally the best glass blunts on the market, especially if you’re one to share with a group of friends. They come equipped with a twisted center that makes it easier to feed and keep the coal to the tip of the device, while helping to keep it burning, and it automatically empties as you go. It really doesn’t get much more convenient than this!

Step 1 – Unscrew the twisted center to remove it from the glass blunt.

Step 2 – Grind your flower to an even and fluffy powder.

Step 3 – Pack the device in whatever way you find most comfortable.

Step 4 – Once the glass blunt is full, it’s time to reinsert that twisted metal piece you took out earlier, by gently and slowly turning it back into place. If it gets stuck, that’s a good indicator that your grind is packed a little too well, and in that case, it’s best to empty the whole thing and start again. Push things too far, and that metal piece could break, so be careful!

Step 5 – When the blunt is packed, it’s time to spark things up, and take a few puffs. From this point forward, it’s important to pay attention to how far the coal has burned. Once it moves more than ½ inch from the opening, it’s time to give the twisted middle a turn, which should feed it outwards, so now it’s easier to handle with a quick flick of the wrist.

Step 6 – If you’re done, once the herb is gone, then it’s time to take the whole thing apart for a good cleaning. Otherwise, you can repack the tube and keep on going.
