You’ve probably seen films like Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, Harold & Kumar, and American Ultra. All of these movies have one thing in common: marijuana. Marijuana used to be frowned upon, but it’s a good thing that many countries are now opening up and making it legal. Over the years, cannabis has gone by many names such as ‘pot’, ‘weed’, ‘reefer’, ‘Mary Jane’, and so on. Many of these terms are used interchangeably, but they all refer to the same thing.

However, this practice should be avoided because they don’t mean the same thing at all. The best example of this is the debate between blunts, joints, and spliffs. They’re all used in the same way: by smoking and inhaling the smoke—the difference lies in the amount of high they give and the purity of the smoking mixture.

In this article, we settle the debate between blunts, joints, and spliffs once and for all. Read on below to learn more.

The General Idea

Blunts, joints, and spliffs are similar in that they’re considered “old-school” methods of using marijuana. Each variant is also popular in different parts of the world.

More about the Blunt

If you know what cigars look like, then you’ll know what blunts look like. With that in mind, blunts are ground cannabis buds wrapped in thick tobacco paper, also used in cigars. For blunt smokers, the easiest way to get them is from any gas station. Well-known examples are Backwoods, Swisher Sheets, and White Owls.  In fact, cashiers know that these cigars will most likely be used for smoking marijuana whenever someone buys them.

A common practice among blunt smokers is buying a cigar and emptying the tobacco inside while keeping the wrapper. They then get the buds, wrap them in, and light it up. This is also the ideal way to smoke marijuana for purist stoners because their product won’t be tainted.

More about the Joint

The joint is seen as the symbol of marijuana smoking. Whenever the act of smoking marijuana is depicted, chances are a joint is used.

The main selling point of a joint is that it contains nothing but pure, highest-quality marijuana. Even more good news, it’s relatively easy to get one because it’s available in legal states. You can try rolling one for yourself, and you’ll only need rolling papers, weed, and a lot of patience.

First, you must grind up your weed before putting it in the paper, rolling it, and lighting it up. If you want to avoid these steps, you can purchase pre-made joints that come in different colours. Aside from that, you can also try extra-large joints or the ‘tulip’—a joint with a prominent bulb of weed placed on the other end of the joint.

More about the Spliff

A spliff is very similar to a joint in terms of physical appearance. However, a spliff contains tobacco content. The mix is generally 50 per cent weed and 50 per cent tobacco, which many smokers prefer simply because of the extra nicotine buzz obtained from it. This is a popular method in England 


Hopefully, this article has cleared up any confusion or misconceptions regarding these three methods of marijuana consumption. Whatever option you choose, it’s a personal matter, and no one will judge you for it. Just remember to be a responsible weed smoker and don't break the law if in a country not yet legalized.
