Joints vs Spliffs vs Blunts [The Picture Guide]
Thursday, Jul 27, 2017

While most websites may use the terms, “joint,”“spliff” and “blunts” generally, in sentences meaning the same thing, these terms describe completely different types of marijuana cigarettes.

What is a Joint?

A joint is a rolled up cigarette that contains only marijuana. It can be whatever strain you want, but it only contains weed. A joint is rolled from rolling or cigarette paper that is usually composed of different materials such as classic wood-pulp to exotic rice. Oh and hemp paper. A joint is typically 3 inches long.

What is a Blunt?

Similar to a joint, a blunt is made out of marijuana only, but instead of rolling it with standard rolling paper such as zig-zag or some other brand, this time it is rolled from tobacco paper. Blunts are often also created from cigar wraps made from tobacco leaf. Unlike a pure joint, when smoking a blunt, you will taste a tobacco flavor.

What is a Spliff?

A spliff is a kind of like a hybrid between the two. They are usually rolled in the same papers as joints, but these time the spliff is filled with a mix of tobacco and marijuana.
