Cannabis enthusiasts have long sought-after smoking devices that can help to enhance the experience of smoking pot, and while the vast market is filled with some pretty impressive options, there is nothing that can compare to the simplicity of the glass blunt. Here, we will start with the basics for beginners, and end with a few of the latest and greatest twisty options that are available to consumers today.

What is a blunt?

A blunt is a common cannabis roll that consists of a tobacco leaf or wrapper that is packed tightly with dry herb to be smoked.

The benefits of choosing a glass blunt

Glass blunts AKA twistys are quickly gaining popularity as consumers look for options that exclude the addition of paper or other potentially harmful ingredients that can significantly alter the flavor and effects of the cannabis, but that isn’t the only reason that so many people are choosing to make the switch. Below are a few other reasons:

  • Easy to use
  • Compact and perfect for travel
  • Durable
  • Saves time
  • Chemical-free
  • Paper-free
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Affordable
  • Convenient
  • Flavorless
  • Scent-free

How to use a glass blunt

A glass blunt is the perfect alternative for rolling papers, but twisty function a bit differently than your average roll. Luckily, once you master how to pack one, the rest of the process is a breeze.

  1. Start by grinding enough weed to fill the glass blunt, ensuring to remove any seeds or stems that might clog up the device.

  2. Unscrew the centerpiece until it is entirely removed from the glass chamber, (or as close as possible).

  3. Gently pack the ground herb into the middle of the glass tube until it is around half full.

  4. Use your finger to press down on the bud to pack it in, then finish filling the tube.

  5. Place the cap on the end of the glass blunt, and slowly turn the spiral back into the chamber until it is all the way back inside.

  6. Remove the cap and top off any empty space if necessary, before replacing the cap. The glass blunt is now ready to be smoked.


How to smoke weed through a glass blunt

  1. When you are ready to smoke your freshly packed glass blunt, be sure to remove the cap first.

  2. Use a lighter to ignite the exposed bud, just like you would with any regular blunt.

  3. Inhale from the mouthpiece and enjoy the full flavor of the weed held within.

  4. Once you have smoked enough where there is now ash built-up to be removed from the glass blunt, use the handle to slightly turn the spiral, which will feed the herb through. Keep going until all the ash is out of the tube, then gently knock it off into an ashtray or some other container.
