What does “Blunt” mean?

Along with joints, blunts are one of the more traditional preparations for smoking cannabis. A blunt is a hollowed-out cigar filled with ground weed. The name derives from Phillies Blunt, a brand of cigars and the practice itself was invented by creative stoners in New York City who wanted a more discreet way of getting high. Because cigars tend to be much larger than cigarettes, they can hold more product as a blunt while also burning slower and more evenly. However, cigars are wrapped with tobacco leaves, meaning that they do hold the potential for nicotine addiction so always smoke responsibly!

Example usage:

“It's a little lame, but I only learned how to roll a blunt from a YouTube video.”
