If you’re not already an expert at rolling weed, smoking a backwood can seem daunting. The trick to rolling a backwood is ensuring that everything stays together and doesn’t fall apart in your hands, and this takes some practice. For this reason, many smokers opt to buy a backwood blunt roller, which makes the entire process much easier and more foolproof.
The first step is to prepare your ingredients. The cannabis should be ground to a fine consistency and the tobacco leaf should be removed from the cigar. If you want to add a little extra flavor, you can use flavored rolling papers instead of the plain ones that come in the pack.
Next, you need to unwrap the cigar and this can be tricky since the tobacco leaf is quite delicate. If you tear it, you can ruin the whole blunt. To avoid this, it’s best to start from one end and slowly unravel it. You can also cut the cigar down the middle, but this isn’t ideal because it spoils the tobacco leaf and part of the appeal of a backwood.
Before you move on to the next step, we recommend that you give the Backwoods wrapper a lick. This will make it a little easier for you to work with, but don’t soak it because the tobacco leaves can be very delicate. If it’s too wet, it can cause holes or even tears in places where it shouldn’t.
