How To Roll a 50 /50 Herbal Spliff
April 20th, our favorite time of the year to enjoy weed with friends old and new, and invite the spontaneity, silliness, and delight that comes from when you smoke a joint together in the middle of the day. If you’re looking to partake in the 4/20
festivities, and want to make sure your celebrations don’t derail your Wednesday responsibilities, we suggest rolling a 50/50 herbal spliff (50% botanicals and 50% cannabis) to set the perfect height of your high.
As professional spliff rollers, we’ve got you covered on how to perfect the art of the mild high using botanicals and outlined a step-by-step guide to creating your perfect preroll.
How To Roll an Herbal Spliff
What you’ll need: A grinder, rolling papers, an elongated stick (chopsticks are great), matches or a lighter, weed, and botanicals of your choice.
Step 1: Take pinches of your weed and pinches of your herbal blend and place them in the grinder. Grind until the weed and herbals are well ground. You may need to use the stick to get any remaining flower out of the teeth of your grinder.
Step 5: Now twist and close the top, light up and smoke!
Why Smoke Herbal Blends with Weed?
The terpenes in different herbs provide an added effect, allowing you to customize your high. For example, the linalool found in lavender (found in our Airplane Mode Blend) invites calm, cool, and collectedness.
The second is that it makes your weed stash last longer. Feel like you’re constantly running out of weed when you JUST contacted your dealer last week? We get it. Mixing your spliff with some herbs will help your stash survive longer than that plant you promised to keep alive (RIP poor fiddle leaf fig).
And lastly, when you have midday work that needs to get done, sometimes you just can’t get *too* high. Maybe you’ve got a meeting, or have 20 chores to complete. You want the benefits of cannabis without flying out the roof. That’s when microdosing cannabis will keep you grounded, yet productive.
