When marijuana is compared to cigarettes, there is rarely an argument: everyone claims that smoking marijuana is way more dangerous than being into cigarettes. It is medically verified and officially announced that weed is more likely to cause uncontrolled cell division—only three doses of cannabis equal to the identical twenty doses of tobacco; these are the critical doses that may trigger cancer, damage our throats, pumps, gullets, lungs, and even hearts.
Apart from these serious illnesses, marijuana also may cause a number of mental disabilities similar to the influence of heroin and cocaine: anxiety, paranoia, depression, distorted sense of time, forgetfulness, and random thoughts. Taking all these facts into consideration, we may conclude that weed can be rather hazardous. However, it is still widely consumed—in the form of spliffs, joints, and blunts. That is why it is useful to know how to tell them apart.
Spliff, Blunt, and Joint: What Is Hidden Inside?
No one would be surprised by the fact that there are several ways of consuming cannabis: you can smoke, ingest, or even chew it. The last one is the simplest. However, it is the least popular one as not everybody can stand the bare taste of these dry leaves in their mouths. Most people tend to like the first mentioned method and are fond of smoking pot. You can put it in a joint, a blunt, or a spliff. But what is the main difference between them? First of all, those who start smoking pot are supposed to master the art of rolling because all three of them are rolls. But there is still a distinctive trait in each of them that deals with the way they are made. Blunts and joints consist of cannabis only while any spliff is a hybrid, containing some parts of tobacco.
One of the paramount facets of rolls is the kind of paper used when making them. Blunts mainly use tobacco paper of a wide spectrum of varieties, but it is simply recognizable—it is thick, heavy, and colored in brown. Joints are made of translucent paper—it is much more tender and lighter. Finally, the combined type—spliff—is wrapped into the same kind of paper as a joint is, and is often accompanied by a filter called crutch. The filter makes it stable and protects the smoker from burning their fingers.1 comment
