According to a 2017 survey, 52% of of US respondents prefer smoking cannabis in a blunt or joint. In Canada, the number is even higher with 68% of respondents preferring cannabis joints to other consumption methods.
There are a lot of reasons to keep smoking jays, but here are four of our favourites:
Semi-Discrete and Ultra Portable
Unlike other methods of smoking, such as a bong or pipe, joints are portable and considered to be more discreet than other methods. While joints do still have that distinct marijuana smell (unlike vape pens), they are much easier to carry around and light up than other methods. Plus, joints work instantly where edibles are extremely discreet but often take 60 to 90 minutes to take affect and are harder to control. Another benefit of joints is that you can purchase pre-rolled joints or prep a few at home so you’re always ready for your next adventure!
Artistic and Creative Freedom
One of the more fun aspects of smoking cannabis through joints is that they offer users a creative outlet. Considered to be mini works of art, joints are an expressive way to enjoy medical marijuana. Most individuals who can roll a basic joint will be able to nail these fun designs on their first try by following a step-by-step guide or video! As you get better, you can go on to produce more intricate designs and impress your friends!
Experience the Full Flavour of Cannabis
Another key aspect of smoking cannabis in joints as opposed to bongs, vape pens or edibles is that you are more likely to experience the unique flavors of each strain. Especially if you roll with all-natural rolling papers, which better preserve the qualities of the flower within. While some users enjoy flavored rollies or cigar wraps, most individuals prefer to enjoy their cannabis as naturally as possible.
Smoking blunts are not ideal, given the tobacco content, but joints are considered to be very safe. In fact, according to a 2015 study, cannabis users maintained the same lung function as non-users – if not better. This is slightly different from the blunt users as tobacco is well known to reduce lung function.
The Social Aspect
Another great aspect of smoking joints is that they are a very sociable way to consume weed! Almost everyone has encountered someone at a party who pulls out a joint and lights it up, only to have a gathering of individuals come over for a puff, puff, pass session! Cannabis also helps reduce social anxiety, making users who would otherwise avoid social contact feel more comfortable in social situations and more open to new experiences and meeting new people.
