The world of cannabis has been evolving and consumers of different cultures have created what seems like neverending ways to consume this miracle plant. From smoking, vaporizing (dabbing), to eating or drinking it in the form of edibles. Now a new trend in smoking cannabis has popped up that people are obsessing over.
If you’re updated in everything social media, then you’ve probably heard about Rose Blunts. If not, here’s what it is and how it’s made.
Based on @simple_sasha’s video tweet, Rose Blunts are basically weed rolled in organic rose petals instead of the traditional tobacco paper wrap. According to the video, you’ll need:
- An organic rose
- An oven friendly pan
- An oven
- Some cannabis
The first step is to peel off three petals from your organic rose and put it in a pan then inside the oven that’s set to broil for about 10 seconds. The petals will get darker in color.
Next is you stick these three petals from end to end by getting the edges wet and then putting them back in the pan and in the oven (still set to broil) for, again, about 10 seconds. The end product will resemble a rose petal boat.
Lastly, fill up the boat-like rose petal wrap with loose cannabis and roll it up tight making sure to tuck in the edges and close it up. To make sure it sticks, put it back in the pan and in the oven (that’s still set to broil), placing it in the layer where the heat goes through first (In @simple_sasha’s case, it’s the bottom of the oven) for 10 seconds.
Once that’s done, take out the pan and there you have it, a rose blunt. But according to @simple_sasha, you need to let the blunt rest for about 2 minutes before smoking it, or else “it won’t smoke right”.
Is it safe?
Since @simple_sasha’s tweet became a trend, a lot of reactions have been shared through the comments and some of these are concerns whether the effects are that of a regular blunt or if it’s safe.
Tackling the question of its safety, people are trying it out for themselves and as of now are still hyped up about it and apparently are still waiting for side effects (if there are any negative ones).
So is it safe? Honestly, we’re not sure yet. But comparing it to the traditional wrap made out of tobacco (adding nicotine in the mix), rose petals couldn’t be much worse. Besides, rose petals are already present in other smoking products and has reported benefits as well.
Some of the benefits of consuming rose petals include clearing the toxins from the body and improves your metabolism, thus aiding in weight loss; it’s a natural aphrodisiac; can treat your acne, and is a stress and depression reliever by producing a sedative effect.
