“Blunt” cigar defined

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Q. What exactly is a “blunt” cigar?
– Vinnie M. in Florida
A. A “Blunt” in the traditional sense is essentially a Corona-size cigar, which is rolled to around 5″ x 42 on average. The ever-popular Phillies Blunts are actually 415/16″ x 41. But the kind of “blunt” I believe you’re referring to is a “cigar” rolled with marijuana.

A “blunt” is made by taking something like a Phillies Blunt (any machine-made convenience store cigar will do), unrolling or splitting it open, removing the tobacco, replacing it with marijuana, and rolling it up again in the wrapper leaf which is often a “homogenized wrapper” made from bits of tobacco leaf and rolled into big sheets like paper bolts. (Note that I do not write from personal experience. ;^)

Today, the term “Blunt” is generally associated with the Hip-Hop subculture. There are also some tobacco shops and websites that sell “blunt” papers for rolling your own cigars, or blunts, depending on your “weed” of choice.
