What is a Backwoods Blunt?
A Backwoods blunt is an all natural tobacco leaf that is used for rolling and smoking marijuana. They come in a variety of pack sizes and flavors. Backwoods flavors include sweet aromatic, original, honey, honey berry, honey bourbon, and more. There are even limited edition flavors like the dark stout and banana.
Backwoods are one of the most expensive blunt wraps on the market. Mac Dre once said, “I smoke them cause they the most expensive.”
Very different from the swisher sweets or even Dutchmaster experience. One hit into a Backwoods blunt, and you’ll notice the difference from your typical Swisher sweet blunt. The hit will be a bit harsher and if you’re not a tobacco smoker you might start to feel a bit light headed.
Backwoods are a step between a cigarillo and fronto leaf. Not as much of a tobacco feel as fronto leaf but way more than a standard cigar or cigarillo. Backwoods are rolled differently than most cigars. They don’t need to be cut down the middle like cigars and ‘rillos. You just unravel the backwood until the neatly rolled up guts fall out at once.
Despite the easy gutting process, many people find backwoods harder to roll than standard cigars and ‘rillos. This is because backwoods tend to be fragile so to prevent unwanted holes or tearing you must gently unravel all backwood cigars.
Backwoods are heavy tobacco leaf blunt wraps. People who spliff their blunts/joints with tobacco will probably be unphased by the nicotine in them. However, non-smokers may find themselves dizzy and sick to their stomach. Those sensitive to nicotine should avoid taking big pulls. The harshness of them cause some to go into coughing fits, if this happens to you try smaller hits.
Popularity of the Backwoods Blunt

Marijuana is becoming more popular and legalized in certain parts of the United States. This is being illustrated in hip-hop, marijuana is now a common topic that rappers like Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg speak openly on.
