The Best Blunt Wraps for Every Stoner

After a long day, there’s nothing like rolling up a blunt and blowing down. Rolling papers, glass, and vapes are cool, but blunt wraps will forever be the OG vehicle for weed. They burn slow, come in tons of flavors and are ideal for passing around a smoke circle.

Looking for the perfect wrap for your next smoke sesh? From the classics to the obscure, here are 10 of the best blunt wraps on the market.

Dutch Masters

As the great Missy Elliott once said, “pass that dutch.” Made with natural tobacco-leaf wrappers, Dutch Masters cigars are famously filled with bud for a mellow smoking experience. It’s Palma Dutches, often called vanilla dutches despite being unflavored, are always a solid option when choosing a blunt wrap that everyone will like. Dutch Masters also makes great cigarillos in tasty flavors like Honey Fusion, Berry Fusion, and Rum Fusion.

Game

Game cigarillos are another popular favorite for flavored cigarillos. They’re a little harsher than a Swisher because they have an added exterior leaf, but less harsh than a Backwood. Additionally, they fall somewhere in the middle in terms of difficulty to roll. Basically, Games are the goldilocks of blunt wraps, and I highly recommend the green flavor (I know green is generally a color, but trust me on this one).

High Hemp

High Hemp’s organic wraps are made with domestically sourced hemp and contain naturally occurring CBD . They’re also pesticide-free, GMO-free, and vegan. The wrap itself is a bit thicker than a typical blunt and comes with a filter tip to make rolling (and smoking) easier. I’ve tried several flavors including the original, Maui Mango, Grape Ape, and Honeypot Swirl. These are now my favorite non-tobacco wraps ever.

Minty’s

For the blunt-lover who is looking for a tobacco-free alternative, Minty’s are a great option. These herbal wraps are made from 100% organically grown, additive-free mint leaves. While some people enjoy the harshness of tobacco, Minty’s offers a smooth, fresh hit that won’t leave you coughing.

Backwoods

Nothing screams “I’m a blunt aficionado” like rolling a Backwood . They’re made from raw tobacco leaves so it takes a little bit of finesse to unroll the entire leaf then carefully roll it around your flower . The end product, however, is worth the effort. They come in mild flavors like Sweet Aromatic and Honey Bourbon which allow the flavor of your bud to shine ⁠— plus they burn so slow that you’ll be passing the blunt all night long.

Phillies

Similar to dutches, Phillies are an old-school favorite for several reasons. They’re easy to slice open and roll, and they’re less harsh than wraps containing actual tobacco leaf. The original flavor is neutral and pleasant, but they’re also available in fun flavors like strawberry and chocolate (in some states). Phillies are the no-BS wrap for stoners who want a straightforward smoking experience.

Swisher Sweets

I learned how to roll blunts using Swisher Sweets because, above all else, they are really easy to roll. I fondly remember cracking open a Tropical Fusion cigarillo, filling it with a laughably small amount of bud, and sealing it up with a feeling of accomplishment. They have an insane amount of flavor options, or you can always stick to the unflavored red Swishers if you’re not interested in lighting up a Boozy Mango or Banana Smash blunt.

Juicy Jay’s

Widely known for their delicious rolling papers, Juicy Jay’s also makes wraps designed for the full blunt experience without the tobacco. They roll and burn similarly to your average cigarillo, but they taste exactly like the flavor on the label. Their flavors include Black N’ Blueberry, Mango Papaya, and Strawberry Fields, all of which will add a nice fruity kick to your favorite bud.

King Palm

Lazy blunt-lovers, rejoice! King Palm makes pre-rolled wraps made from slow-burning palm leaves. They’re chemical-free, glue-free, and come with a corn husk filter which helps prevent plant matter from getting in your mouth. They taste mild and natural thanks to the lack of artificial flavoring, plus they don’t harm the environment. According to their website, the leaves cut from the tree for King Palms grow back quickly and the corn husk filter is completely biodegradable.

Entourage

If you love that nicotine head rush after smoking a blunt, Entourage has got you covered. Each pack contains two wraps that are made of a homogenized binder like a standard cigarillo, plus an attached natural leaf that adds a second layer to your blunt. This wrap is very wide and fits a ton of bud, making it a fantastic choice for a big smoke sesh. They also burn slowly and come in smooth, creamy flavors like Pink Vanilla.

Hemp Wraps vs. Blunt Wraps – Which is Better?

Hemp wraps and hemp cones hit the US market in 2017 with a bang! This product quickly became a favorite of smokers, and it expanding into the world of blunt smokers! As of February 2017, there are several major manufacturers of hemp wraps including Juicy Jay’s, Cyclones, Twisted, Kingpin, Skunk, High Hemp, Kush, and Kong Wraps. These wraps are occasionally called “Organic Hemp Blunt Wraps”, but that’s not really an accurate description of the product.

The Deal with Blunt Wraps

Blunt wraps have been around for decades and are a favorite of many cannabis smokers. They offer the unique combination of an even, slow burn with a variety of flavors. There are many brands and flavors of blunt wraps on the market today with prices ranging from $0.75 to $3 each. California has banned flavored tobacco including blunt wraps and one should expect blunt wraps to be banned nationwide in the near future. Please refer to the update on blunt wrap bans at the bottom of this page.

Honestly, there’s not much difference between hemp wraps and blunt wraps when it comes to rolling and smoking. Even the flavors are similar. They both have a nice burn and are easy to roll. You might consider hemp wraps to be a “tobacco free blunt wrap” because they’re very similar in how they taste, roll, and burn.

The Big Difference is Nicotine

The main difference in blunt wraps and hemp wraps is the lack of nicotine in hemp wraps. If you love the “buzz” of nicotine, you will probably prefer blunt wraps over hemp wraps. Obviously, nicotine is addictive and unhealthy and many people struggle with nicotine addiction. In fact, Nicotine is actually used as an effective pesticide and for that reason alone should not be ingested. It’s extremely bad for you. It’s a natural poison.

Hemp wraps might be a solid alternative to blunt wraps because they feel, roll, and smoke very similarly to blunt wraps. If you don’t like the euphoric “buzz” of nicotine, you will find that hemp wraps offer the same slow-burning wrap and great flavor without the nicotine “high”. Hemp wraps offer medical marijuana patients an alternative to blunt wraps because most medical patients aren’t interested in nicotine. Some hemp wraps are advertised to contain CBD, which won’t get you “high”, but offers a vast array of other medicinal benefits that scientists are still studying. CBD is non-addictive and non-psychoactive so you don’t have to worry about struggling to give up smoking hemp wraps if the need arises. However, that doesn’t mean hemp wraps are good for you.

So Are Hemp Wraps Healthier than Blunt Wraps?

Not usually. Hemp wraps are primarily a nicotine-free alternative, but that doesn’t make them inherently healthier. Are hemp wraps are bad for you? We talk about it more in our next article.

Legislation Alert for 2018!

California and Massachusetts are both banning flavored tobacco products — and that includes blunt wraps. This is a good sign that in the future blunt wraps won’t even be legal in your state. There is a good chance people will make the switch from blunt wraps to hemp wraps once flavored blunt wraps are banned. These regulations are supposed to take effect in early 2018.

Super informative article! Thanks guys. That’s super interesting that regulations are going into effect in 2018 banning flavored tobacco products. I actually use the hemp wraps for herbal blends so that’s good news those are here to stay! A lot of the hemp rolling paper and hemp wrap companies make different types of herbal blends themselves as well.

Since they are banning tobacco wraps it won’t be long before we can actually BAN tobacco since it’s dangerous. I can forsee tobacco industry crippling and banned.

I believe that wraps are good actually great because you don’t taste the tobacco as much with there select flavors . I grew up only using swisher sweet or white owl white grape those are the only flavors we had going into 2008 to 2011 that’s when I graduated hs but now they have all these new things . I say get it right and use a wrap don’t be stupid and smoke poison

Its not even really the nicotine in tobbacco wraps thats unhealthy. Its the radioactive isotopes from tobbacco fertilizer, and the other toxi chemicals like flame retardants.yeah nicotine is addictive but inherently is more similiar to caffeine when taken purley.
