The “Marijuana language” is a real goldmine of wacky verbiage. From dabs, and airplane, to sticky icky and swag, these are, literally, slang phrases for every situation. A good number of these phrases can be used interchangeably; however, some have very specific and precise meanings. Perhaps the most popular words in the cannabis world are “joint” and “blunt.” So, what are these?
What is a pre-roll joint?
First, let us try to understand the construction of the pre-roll blunt and the pre-roll-joint so that it’s easier to identify the differences and the similarities and what makes each one unique.
Pre-roll joint interior
The interior of a joint solely contains marijuana. And just to get rid of confusion, a joint does not mean the same thing as a spliff. A spliff usually contains both tobacco and marijuana, which is not the case for a joint.
Pre-roll joint exterior
A joint is rolled in some type of rolling or cigarette paper. Normally, these papers can be made of different materials such as wood-pulp, hemp, flax, or rice. Each type of paper has different features including, flavor, “roll-ability,” thickness, size, and burn length.
Pre-roll joint size
Most rolling papers for pre-roll joints are approximately three inches long. When rolled, they normally look a lot like a cigarette. That said, pre-roll joints can be thicker or thinner depending on the rolling paper used and how much weed you pack inside.
Pre-roll Joint flavor
The flavor of joints will result from the paper used to roll them. The majority of the papers are flavorless, though some flavored brands are available on the market.
What is a pre-roll blunt?
Pre-roll blunt interior
The interior of a pre-roll blunt, just like a pre-roll joint, is strictly marijuana. A blunt mixed with anything else is certainly not a blunt and should be called a different name.
Pre-roll blunt exterior
A blunt is made by filling a piece of tobacco with marijuana. Alternatively, a blunt can be made from a cleaned out cigar wrap. Actually, cigar wraps are usually made from compressed tobacco leaf.
Pre-roll blunt size
Since blunts use papers intended for cigars, they are normally thicker and longer than the typical pre-roll joint. The thickness, though, can vary depending on the amount of weed packed inside. Some people prefer their pre-roll blunts filled to the max so that they can look like a commercial cigar, while others prefer them less packed to give a resemblance of a drinking straw.
Regardless of the thickness or length, it is what’s on the outside – cigar wrap or tobacco paper – that makes a blunt a blunt.
Pre-roll blunt flavor
The flavor of the blunt heavily relies on the type of rolling material used. For instance, a blunt rolled with a tobacco paper will obviously carry a tobacco flavor with it.
Blunt vs. Joint
To smoke a pre-roll joint or pre-roll blunt is just a matter of personal preference. The good thing about this discussion, is that it gives you the chance to try each one of them and decide for yourself.
