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.
