Joint vs. Blunt: What Are the Differences?
by Kyle Hall on Jan 26, 2023
A joint is a marijuana cigarette that is rolled with thin rolling paper. The rolling paper is usually made from a variety of materials, such as rice, hemp, and flax. They are typically filled with ground marijuana, and they can be smoked just like a regular cigarette. Joints provide a milder smoking experience since the paper can burn quickly, and they have a smaller size than blunts, making them easier to transport and store.
A blunt is a larger marijuana cigarette that is rolled with thicker, cigar paper. This type of paper is usually made from a variety of tobacco leaves and sometimes even hemp or flax. Blunts are usually filled with a combination of ground marijuana and tobacco, although you can also find blunts filled with all marijuana. They provide a stronger smoking experience than joints, as the thicker paper burns slower. They also tend to be larger than joints, so they can provide more of an intense smoking experience.
When it comes to health risks, joints are generally considered to be the safer option. Since the paper is thinner, it tends to burn more quickly, so the smoke is not as intense. This means that users can enjoy the effects of marijuana without putting their lungs at risk from inhaling too much smoke. Blunts are more likely to cause respiratory issues due to the thicker paper and the combination of marijuana and tobacco.
When it comes to cost, joints are usually the more affordable option. Since they are smaller, they require less material to make and can be purchased in bulk for a lower price. Blunts are more expensive since they require more material to make and they often contain a combination of marijuana and tobacco.
In conclusion, joints and blunts both offer different smoking experiences and come with different health risks. Joints are generally considered to be the safer option and are more affordable, while blunts are more intense and come with a higher health risk. Ultimately, it’s important to understand the differences between the two so you can make the best decision for your smoking needs.
