How to Smoke a Blunt Correctly

To smoke blunts with ease and finesse, there are certain steps you’ll have to follow. Here’s the low-down.

1. Rolling a Blunt Comes First

The trickiest part about learning how to smoke a blunt doesn’t have anything to do with the actual act of smoking. Rather, learning how to efficiently put weed in a blunt is the most complicated part of the process.

If you purchase a pre-roll, you won’t have to worry about any of this. But if you’re DIY-ing it, the best way to roll a blunt is:

  • Use a grinder to break up weed into finer pieces. 
  • Place the ground weed evenly across a blunt paper or wrap.
  • Lick the edge of the blunt paper and twist it over, using your thumb to tuck one side of the wrapper over the weed.

Lightly wave the flame from a lighter back and forth across the blunt to dry the paper so that it burns evenly. Learn more on the best way to smoke marijuana.

2. Inserting a Filter Onto the Tip of the Blunt

After rolling your blunt up nice and tight, you’ll insert some sort of filter. Trust me on this: unless you want a mouthful of nasty weed bits and tar-filled lungs, you need a good filter — I learned the hard way.

When choosing a filter, it’s best to opt for one that fulfills multiple purposes, such as:

  • Creating a smoother and cleaner taste
  • Filtering out dangerous contaminants
  • Preventing loose leaves from getting into your mouth
  • Reducing the scent of weed from your fingers and mouth
  • Stopping unwanted pull-through

Fortunately, the MouthPeace Mini by Moose Labs checks every one of these boxes. It uses triple layer activated carbon to filter out tar and resin, creating cleaner and better-tasting smoke. Plus, the device comes in an array of funky color combos—like Unicorn and Blue Dream or Rasta and Panama Red.

Because the MouthPeace Mini is expertly designed to fit standard pre-rolls on one side and larger home-rolled blunts on the other, all you have to do is insert a filter into the center of the product and then choose a side to fit around your blunt.

3. Sparking up the Lighter and Smoking the Blunt

Hold a flame up to the end of your blunt opposite the MouthPeace Mini, and roll the blunt to achieve an even burn. If you want to avoid inhaling any excess paper, don’t put the blunt in your mouth while you light it. As cool as it may look, you should also avoid inhaling while you light up, as it can result in an uneven burn.

Once it’s evenly and properly lit, bring the blunt to your lips and take a few short puffs. When you’re ready for a full hit, all you have to do is slowly draw in your desired amount of blunt smoke, and then breathe in deeper through your diaphragm. There’s no need to hold your breath for longer than two seconds, so feel free to exhale right away.

How to Hit a Blunt with MouthPeace Mini

When you have a MouthPeace Mini in place, smoking a blunt is an overall safer and more pleasurable experience.

Keep in mind that you want to slowly and smoothly pull through the MouthPeace Mini to allow the blunt to burn evenly. The main issue with pulling too hard on a blunt is that you can cause one side to run quicker than the other, which in turn creates an uneven burning of the blunt.

Smoking a Blunt Without Coughing

Whether you’re a blunt-newbie, don’t smoke blunts often, or are a veteran smoker, coughing fits are bound to happen. If you go about it the wrong way, that is.

The number one cough-culprit is leaving out a filter. Without one in place, you’ll breathe in small particles of ash that irritate your throat and the tissue in your lungs.

But when you smoke a blunt with a MouthPeace Mini, you prevent this damage from occurring. Several users have stated that they can now smoke weed cough-free.

But don’t just take their word for it. If you’re nervous about coughing attacks, try out a MouthPeace Mini for yourself and find out how it reduces the number of fits you experience.

Filtering Blunt Smoke: The Best Way to Do It

When it comes to filters for smoking weed with paper, there are a few different types to choose from. These include:

  • Handmade raw tips filters
  • Glass filter tips
  • Pre-rolled tips

While these options do an okay job at keeping loose leaves out of your mouth, they can also filter out smaller particles, such as THC. In contrast, the MouthPeace Mini filters out the bad stuff with its triple-layer activated carbon filter while allowing the good stuff to pass on through.

Being Germ-Free and Safe Blunt Smokers

Sharing blunts between a group of people has its pros and cons. On the one hand, social smoking is an enjoyable and communal experience. But on the other hand, it can cause germs to spread like lightning.

An easy way to limit the spread of germs is for everyone to bring their own portable MouthPeace Mini to the smoking sesh. Even though it’s still in our best interest to practice social distancing, we can still enjoy smoking blunts together as long as we use our Mini’s.


Now you not only know how to smoke a blunt, but you also know to properly inhale and safely share the magic. One thing is obvious: a MouthPeace Mini is the best way to smoke a blunt in 2021!
