How To Roll A Blunt
You will need:
Around 5 grams of herb
Time: around 1 hour
Ok, so here we are ready to roll the epic sniper blunt. Before attempting such a breath taking roll you should already be familiar with how to roll a blunt. Now lets begin the tutorial, unpack four blunts and allow them to dry.
You should use extra long roaches here, we will need 6 of them. I have used one piece from a roach book to make two roaches. Fold the piece of roach in half, cut down the fold and then score the half pieces to curl them long ways.
We are going to roll a nice fatty blunt. It should be about as big as you can get it using one blunt wrap.
A good tip to rolling a fat blunt is to compact the herb using your thumb and fingers, then after a pre-compact use the pre-shape technique that I showed you in how to roll a joint.
Now take two more blunts, we are going to stick these together.
Use plenty of saliva to stick the blunts together, we don't want to find our blunts are falling apart later on. After you stick any blunts together you always need to leave them to fully dry before operating on them. For some strange reason one of my wraps is larger than the other, If this ever happens just use scissors to level them off.
Now that the two blunts are stuck together and have dried place the first rolled blunt inside and place a large amount of herb (around 2 grams) underneath. Do not place herb above the first rolled blunt, only underneath.
Now make a nice tight wrap keeping the inside blunt at the top, your wrap really needs to be nicely compacted as we will be making 3 holes inside it. You can compact both ends using an object that will fit inside, and also the tap technique mentioned in the joint rolling guide.
Here is a quick picture of where we are at now, make sure your blunts are nicely compact and full.
Now we are going to wrap a skinnier blunt, this will be used as the stands. You can cut 1/4 off the width of this blunt if you wish, that way you will only use 5 blunts overall instead of 6. I use platinum blunts which come with two blunts in each pack so using six was ideal for me.
We want this blunt to be an equal width throughout, so don't make a cone. When you stick down the paper it should stick level all the way down. Again, leave your new blunt to dry after sticking it.
Measure half way down your blunt and then cut it in half with sharp scissors. If your scissors are not sharp you might end up crushing the blunt out of shape into an oval, obviously if this happens reshape it by hand.
Now we will make two small holes underneath the blunt on either side. Just make a small nip to start with.
Important Note: Remember, if the holes end up being too big you will not get an airtight seal which means your sniper blunt is not going to smoke correctly. When we push the stands in we want it to be as tight as possible.
As you can see the small holes are parallel to each other. We start off with a smaller hole than we need because you cant make a large hole smaller - at least without a major boj-job anyway.
Now we will start to make these holes larger, the stands off this sniper roll are going to go about 3/4 into the main blunt and you want to aim them either side of the blunt inside the main blunt. Carefully and gently start to burrow out the holes .
After you have done some burrowing with a roach you can use an object that is just slightly smaller than the width of the sniper stands that you rolled. With platinum blunts you get a plastic tube which is a perfect tool for this work. This is why they are always my blunt of choice.
After you have finished enlarging the holes you are ready to push the sniper stands in, you should of seen the important note a few steps back. Hopefully your stands will be inserting tightly and requiring a slight twist clockwise and anti clockwise to get them to push all the way in. If you needed to twist them to insert them then well done, you are on the way to a nicely smokable sniper blunt.
Now we are going to start making the roaches, take your fifth blunt and cut it vertically in half.
Stick these blunts together as seen to the left, use plenty of saliva because this needs to be really strong, it will need to endure a bend later on. It is important to let these blunts fully dry... I cannot stress that enough...If your blunts aren't dry then your going to have a bad time.
Place your dry joined blunt wrap under the end of sniper roll.
Add your six roaches (I used six as that made the perfect width to be level with the end of the sniper blunt, add more or less roaches to your requirements). Also look closely at the picture, I have left a small gap of around 2-3mm between the roaches and herb, this is important because we need a little room to help it bend. Make sure that the roaches are level with the end of the blunt and are not going to be hanging out. Using a lot of saliva, stick your blunt to the sniper roll. I licked both the blunt and the sniper roll. Give it all a good time to dry, I left mine for 15 minutes here, this area needs to withstand violence and abuse and if it is even slightly damp from the saliva it is going to rip.
WHAT!!! A TRIANGLE!! what kind of illuminati blunt is this?! finish your trip and start to roll the blunt around the roaches. Turn the sniper roll while guiding the blunt around the roaches. Because the roaches blunt piece is connected to the sniper roll it makes this step very easy.
Here I am wrapping my masterpiece.
Seal the blunt nice and tightly.
And here we are, I left my blunt to dry for another 15 minutes here as the next step will rip and tear if the blunt is even a tiny bit damp.
Don't rush this step and ruin all your hard work, make sure your blunt is dry. Then we will carefully bend the roaches down at an angle, if you left the 2-3 mm gap between the roaches and the herb the bend should stay in place. If you didn't then find a way to pull the roaches out a few mm's and snip off the excess roach with scissors.
Now we are going to add the trigger - and yes its smokable and has herb inside! First we will cut the gap into the underneath of the sniper blunt and make the trigger after, you can go forwards a few step and make the trigger first if you wish, it makes no difference.
Taking it slow and being very careful snip away the blunt paper from the small cut you made and then push the blade of the scissors down and compact the herb inside by pushing it out the way. I went about 8mm into mine.
Now we are going to make the trigger, You should have one full blunt left or if you wanted to use five blunts you should have 1/4 of a blunt left. If you have 1/4 left then read on and make sure you make the trigger,scope and scope sticker to the right size. If you have a full blunt left then you will be fine.
Add a small amount of herb.
Now compact the herb down with the blade of the scissors until it will fold up nicely.
We wont bother trying to roll this trigger as it is a bit too small for that, instead we will fold it two to three times leaving us with both long sides sealed and two open ends, now fold this in half so that both open ends are on the same side.
Push the two open ends into the hole we made for the trigger.
We are so close to finishing now, All we have to do is roll the scope and stick it on. Cut off a small bit of blunt paper and roll yourself a scope to the size you like.
Take another piece of blunt paper, we will use this to stick down the scope to the blunt, use plenty of saliva.
Here is a cool angled picture of the final project.
If your sniper blunt looks like mine then go find someone to shake hands or high five with.
