How Much Does a Joint Cost?

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 24 November 2021 in Canna Blog

I’ve got yet another scenario for you today. 


So, as you're driving home from work, you think to yourself, I want a dispensary treat. You’re thinking about rolling up a joint or two when you get home. 

As you start to think about the rolling process, you decide you want to be lazy. 

After all, you worked all day. You don’t want to add work to smoking too. 

So, you decide you’ll grab a joint or two instead, but how much do joints cost? 

How much weed goes in a joint?

Never worry, as always, we will be your guide on joints and what joints cost near you.

What is a Joint?

As Cheech once said, “That’s not a joint, that’s a quarter pounder!”.  

Joints are as iconic for cannabis culture as Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. 

Whoa, man!

Joints (pre-roll, spliff, doobie, fatty, etc.) are delightful portable little cannabis utensils that allow you to have a smoke sesh at your convenience. 

Joints are made up of ground-up marijuana buds, rolled thinly with special rolling papers

When provided by a dispensary, oftentimes joints will come with a filter which is also known as a crutch. This keeps the joint stable and keeps your lips/fingers from getting burnt. 

But are they worth it? 

Our opinion: YES.

How Much Weed Is In a Joint?

An average joint has between .32 grams to a full 1 gram depending on how they were rolled. 

If someone rolls a joint by hand, this can vary widely. 

If your joint was rolled by a dispensary, likely it's either a half gram (.5) or 1 gram in weight. Though some specialty joints do exist, products vary. 

Why Smoke a Joint?

There are plenty of reasons to choose to smoke a joint compared to other weed products that are out there. 

Here are a few reasons:

A Full Flavor Experience

Joints allow you to taste and feel your flower’s terpenes

This not only busts your overall high but can taste great while doing so. 

Rolling papers are known to be non-toxic and some are even made from rice.


Joints are a discreet and easy-to-transport kind of marijuana product. 

They allow you to carry nothing else but a lighter. Just throw the crutch away when you're finished!


The absolute best way to enjoy marijuana is with some people. 

Rounds of joints are good for opening up all kinds of wacky conversations with people you’d maybe not have talked to. 

If you pull out a joint at a gathering, you’re sure to meet someone.

So, How Much Does a Joint Cost?

Joints are going to vary based on weight, size, and whether those joints have special ingredients (moon rocks, kief, hash, etc.).

In Colorado, joints cost between $5-$10 dollars based on the tier of the shelf the flower came from. For a full gram joint, prices get between $10-$18 dollars once again depending on the sales tier.

Joints, along with all the marijuana products in Colorado, do have a state tax attached so just bring a couple of dollars extra. 

For pre-rolls, this doesn’t make it cost too much higher.

Hope this helps you with everything joint-related.

Now you know how much a joint should cost in Colorado.

How to roll a blunt in 5 steps

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 28 November 2020 in Canna Blog

Many cannabis consumers that know how to roll a joint agree – knowing how to roll a blunt is a different game. Knowing how to roll a blunt is something that takes more know-how and experience. This is not only because a blunt is much longer and fatter than an average joint, the paper is also much more coarse and grainy, which makes it a bit more difficult to roll and to get to stick together.

If you're a first-timer or a beginner, we built this step-by-step guide for you. We created this guide on how to roll a blunt beginner friendly.. 

We will cover: 

  • Why choose a blunt, to begin with

  • Which type of blunt wrap to choose

  • How to prepare your marijuana for a blunt

  • Tips to roll consistent blunts

  • A 5-step guide to rolling expert blunts

Let’s begin! 

Rolling Your First Blunt: Why Do It? 

Blunts are a popular method of smoking weed. A blunt is commonly thought of as a larger, fatter joint that is wrapped in a tobacco or cigar wrap. They last longer, hold more, and carry with them aroma and effects that marijuana on its own does not.

If you are interested in learning about how to roll a blunt, you are likely interested in what these additional effects are - both in paper and in practice. 

Blunts commonly are rolled using hollowed tobacco wraps. These tobacco wraps impart flavors and a small amount of nicotine into the experience of smoking the blunt. Much like spliffs, which mix cannabis and tobacco before being rolled into a paper, blunts are known to provide a small headrush and physical energy right after smoking. 

This is an effect purely linked to tobacco, and it’s among the main reasons blunts are popular. Second, blunts are popular because they can add flavor through the cigarillo wrap used to roll them. That flavor both adds to smoking the blunt and helps to obscure the aroma of cannabis. 

How To Roll A Blunt for Beginners in Five Steps

We understand that many of us have never rolled our joints or blunts. It is a skill that can be learned and perfected, but not without practice and someone to show you the way. Since there is no “How to Roll A Blunt for Dummies”, we created a step-by-step ourselves. You’ll have to go buy some marijuana or have some around to move forward - at least if you want a hands-on learning experience.

Take advantage of the best ounce deals in Denver with Cannasaver. 

If you choose to get weed legally, you'll need a valid government-issued photo ID proving you're 21 years old or older to shop at any of the local recreational marijuana dispensaries. You'll need a med card if you want to shop at the medical dispensaries or take advantage of medical pricing which is often lower.

Let’s get roiling. 

Step 1: Break Up Your Buds

You'll need to break up your weed into small pieces to roll it in a blunt. You can use any flower strain you want at this point. To save some money, you can go for discount buds, shake, and trim rather than the premium top-shelf flower. If you want this smoking experience to be as luxurious as possible, go for premium flower and luxury wraps or cigarillos. 

Blunts, by design, last longer - so a good strain is a good plan, but not necessary to learn how to roll a blunt. 

Step 2: Buy a blunt or a blunt wrap

A traditional blunt wrap uses an actual cigar with the tobacco hollowed out of it. Many people opt for a cigarillo such as Swisher Sweets, which are both cost-effective and available in numerous flavors, rather than an actual cigar when learning to roll a blunt. 

If you don’t feel that you want to start by ripping the guts out of a cigar and then licking the paper back together, commercially-made blunt wraps are available as well. 

Both cigarillos and wraps are usually sold in packs of two and are available at most convenience stores. 

If you're a beginner at blunt rolling, your best bet is to choose a commercially made blunt wrap as these are much easier to work with. Zig Zag has a good variety of flavored blunt wraps if you like your blunts on the sweeter side. If you want to go the more old-school route and start with a cigar, a Phillies is the classic full-flavor blunt experience.

Step 3: Prepare your blunt wrap

If you've opted to start your first blunt with a traditional cigar, you'll need to empty the tobacco first. Slit the cigar down the middle vertically and empty the tobacco, or gently twist until you get all the tobacco out. 

If you've chosen a blunt wrap, simply bend it in half as you would with a rolling paper when rolling a joint. 

If you have never rolled a joint, not to worry - we’ve got a tip: Wrap the blunt wrap around a pen, lick the paper, and seal it around the pen just loose enough to slide off once dry enough. Most wraps come with a plastic tube in the center which can be used to pack the blunt. 

Step 4: Prepare your weed

When learning how to roll a blunt, you'll want to make sure your weed is broken up evenly and without any thick chunks, stems, or seeds. The more consistent the weed is broken up, the easier it is to roll or pack. But be careful, if it's ground too fine, the smoker may not be able to hit very well.

Step 5: Roll the Blunt

If you're using a blunt wrap or a cigar that's been split down the middle, simply roll it as you would roll a joint. Add your weed down the middle and spread it out so that it's nice and even. Once it’s evenly distributed, hold it with your thumbs in the middle while you use your index fingers to keep everything in place as you roll it up as tightly as possible. 

Lick the wrapper along the upper edge, seal it up, and it's ready to smoke. If you've chosen to empty the tobacco of your blunt without cutting it, you'll need to carefully fill it with weed, packing it down as you go. A small funnel made out of construction paper and a straw or other thin object will come in handy here and make your job a lot easier. 

Once you have your weed in and it's filled up completely so that it's nice and fat, simply light it up and get to toking.
