Why You Should Know How to Roll a Rose Petal Blunt

Sometimes a little ingenuity is all that it takes to skyrocket into Twitter stardom. Such is the case for Twitter user  @simple_sasha who, before two months ago was just a bright-eyed young lass with a penchant for pot. But this young lady had apparently traveled down to the crossroads at the stroke of midnight, struck a deal with some high-ass devil and learned how to roll a rose petal blunt. 

The idea sounded preposterous let alone feasible to the feeble stoner mind. People responded with all kinds of questions ranging from “is it safe”?” to “what does it taste like?” Naturally, these blunts are going to taste like flowers, as @simple_sasha so poetically clarified:

Using her own Twitter theater Sasha brilliantly showed us how to roll a rose petal blunt using just 3 rose petals, her oven and a healthy amount of lip grease:


Once the initial awe subsided, people began to post pics on social media of their own rose petal creations. Before folks got carried away, Sasha made sure to point out that organic roses (meaning roses that weren’t treated with pesticides and chemicals i.e bought at your local gas station) worked best and would likely prevent you from dying. Duly noted.



So why is this whole rose petal blunt thing catching on, besides the fact that stoners like new shiny things they can smoke? Well, the biggest factor is health. While smoking on anything has its health detriments, smoking tobacco is a given health hazard. Years of chronic blunt smoking can lead to the same respiratory issues as smoking cigarettes, so a rose petal just might be the alternative folks are looking for.

Not only that, you’re going to look cool. Think about it. Who among your friends is going to show up to a smoke session with a bouquet of rose petal blunts? You are, dammit, because you’re the coolest person you know.
