How to roll a Grabba blunt
How to roll a Grabba leaf blunt
Starting with your whole leaf Grabba, carefully tear along the veins of the leaf into small rectangle strips. Tear to your preferred size. You now have a leaf wrapper for rolling a blunt.
Place your wrapper lengthwise in the palm of your hand and evenly spread your herb into the wrapper. Using both hands, carefully place the loaded strip in a position to begin rolling with your fingers and thumb.
Slightly squeeze and fold up both sides of the leaf while gently tapping down on the herb in the center making sure it is evenly spread and tightly layered.
Now get the first fold in tightly with your thumb while overlapping the second side as you start rolling. Tuck tightly each time as you continue to roll. Moisten or lick with saliva to help make it stick. Just lick and tuck until you have a tightly and fully rolled blunt. Some smokers will seal it with a full top to bottom lick. Pinch the ends, do the cosmetics and you are ready to go.
How can I keep grabba tobacco leaf fresh?
Smokers who prefer “roll-your-own” (RYO) tobacco often ask “how can I keep my tobacco leaf fresh”? Exposure to air naturally dries out tobacco leaf so you store it in a sealed bag. A good start is to purchase only premium quality grabba or fronto leaf. We recommend using only the best products such as Original Grabba whole leaf and wraps from Vale Republic. The eco-friendly packaging comes with built in zip lock to maintain product freshness. The packages are reusable and scent-proof with airtight closure to help ensures the freshness of your tobacco. If your fronto leaf becomes dry, simply use a spray bottle to spray the leaf on both sides or pat it down with a damp paper towel. After that, let sit for a few minute to bring it back to its flexible, soft state.
Mold on your tobacco leaf
A small amount of mold on leaf stems is not unusual and can be expected on tobacco leaves especially on the stems. However, if you find mold it is recommended that you simply washed off or cut around the affected area. Moisten and let it dry and it will be ready for smoking.
Drying leaf for crushing
Many users prefer to quickly dry out leaf and make their grabba “hot” by tearing preferred size and running the flame from a lighter in a back-and-forth motion. This will quickly fire-dry the leaf which many users prefer.
Cut preferred amount of leaf and let naturally air dry for approximately 5 minutes. The leaf will naturally dry out and easily be crushed between fingers using a rolling motion.
Zip Lock Pouch
Always make sure to tightly fold the leaf and make sure the zip lock on the pouch is fully sealed. All Original Grabba whole-leaf and wraps come in resealable zip lock pouches to preserve freshness.
Green spots on leaf
If there are ever any green spots on leaf they are harmless. For example, during the curing process of the leaf natural discoloration can occur and it is a sign for farmers that the leaf is fully mature.
Our leaves are naturally soft so as a result, you can cut to size and roll the cigar to your preferred size, seal and enjoy
