What Is A Spliff?

What Is A Spliff?

As marijuana is legalized and more widely available worldwide, more and more people are interested in learning about cannabis culture. The National Survey on Drug Use shows that every day 6,000 Americans try marijuana for the first time. Even Shakespeare is known to have put some pot in his pipe! So, if you’re new to the culture and want to learn more, you’re not alone, and you’re in the right place.

There are countless ways to consume cannabis, but the three most common methods of smoking the flower are in a joint, blunt, or spliff. This article will explore the differences between them, why you should and shouldn’t smoke spliffs, and some handy spliff tips and etiquette. 

Joint, Blunt, or Spliff? Which One is Right for You?

These three terms are used to differentiate between the paper used when rolling up your weed and any other substances included. 

First up, the joint. A joint is the purest and arguably most popular way to smoke marijuana. A joint consists of crushed marijuana flower hand-rolled into a marijuana cigarette using thin rolling paper. Rolling papers can come in various colours and flavours, but the most commonly used are plain, thin, white papers.

Next, the blunt. A blunt is also filled with crushed marijuana flowers, but the paper used to roll a blunt is different. Blunts use cigar paper or blunt wraps, which contain tobacco, meaning that you’ll get an extra little tobacco buzz.

Finally, the spliff. Spliffs are made with the same rolling papers as joints, but you roll your weed up with some tobacco in a spliff. This gives the roller control over the ratio of weed to tobacco and results in a bit of a head rush before the effects of the cannabis sink in.

An additional factor to note here is that in Europe, the terms “joint” and “spliff” are reversed. So, the next time you’re in Amsterdam, make sure to order a joint if you want that hit of tobacco.

Why you Should Smoke Spliffs

Spliffs are Easier to Roll

The texture and stickiness of cannabis are unpredictable due to several factors, including how it was cured, stored, which strain you’re smoking, how old the weed is, and how it’s been ground up. This means that the joints you’re rolling could be pretty inconsistent in their shape and how well they smoke. Adding a little tobacco in your joint could add some springiness to dry weed or give some structure to weed that is very sticky and tricky to handle.

Spliffs Smoke Smoother

Two of the significant downfalls of joints are: if the weed in your joint is too sticky, it won’t stay lit long enough for you to finish smoking it, and sometimes joints can have a tendency to “canoe” (i.e. one side of the joint burns faster than the other). Adding a bit of tobacco to your joint can solve both of these problems. Rolling tobacco is quite fine and not very sticky, so it ensures a smooth and even burns throughout your spliff, and it won’t go out.

Spliffs are not as Potent as Joints

Because the weed in a spliff is diluted with tobacco, you will not consume as much marijuana as you would in a joint of the same size. If you are still new to smoking weed, this could be a good entryway for you and help you learn your intake limit. 

Spliffs are Cheaper than Joints

In countries where recreational marijuana smoking is legal, a gram of weed will, on average, cost about $12. On the other hand, a gram of rolling tobacco works out to about 30c. So, if you want a bit more bang-for-your-buck, subbing out some of your weed for tobacco can save you a lot of money. And it will help your weed to last longer!

Spliffs are more Discreet than Joints

Marijuana has a strong and distinctive smell, both when it is in flower form and smoked. So, when you are smoking a joint, it is pretty evident to anyone around you. However, the tobacco in a spliff can be somewhat overpowering, and it will help disguise that weed smell. So, if you are hoping to keep your weed smoking under wraps, then a spliff might be the solution for you.

Why you Shouldn’t Smoke Spliffs

Spliffs Contain Tobacco

Tobacco comes with its host of disadvantages, including its links to causing cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases, diabetes, headaches, emphysema etc. Smoking tobacco will also leave you reeking of it. So, rolling tobacco into your spliffs means that you take on these additional risks of smoking. Use at your own risk!

Tobacco Masks the Taste of Weed 

Weed is super fragrant and flavorful, and each different strain of weed comes with its unique flavour profile. Unfortunately, when you add tobacco to your marijuana, the taste and smell of tobacco can be overpowering, so you miss out on the nuances of the weed.

Helpful tips and tricks

When rolling your spliff, a few factors could enhance the experience for you and some etiquette guidelines that will improve the experience for the people you are sharing your spliff with.


First off, don’t use tobacco out of a cigarette, but instead, go to a tobacconist and ask for rolling tobacco. Tobacco from a cigarette tends to be dry and crunchy, compared to rolling tobacco which is more sticky and malleable. Rolling tobacco will ensure a more effortless rolling experience and a better smoking experience.

Next, don’t twist up the paper at the end of your spliff. While this is a good technique if you don’t want any flower to spill while travelling, it can lead to uneven burning or “canoeing.”

Finally, ensure that you use a good filter at the tip of your spliff. If you do not have filters on hand, you can roll your own “crutch” out of thin cardboard. This will ensure that you don’t burn your fingers or lips when you are smoking.


When you share your spliff with others, make sure to let everyone know that there is tobacco. Not everyone wants to smoke tobacco. It can be quite a nasty shock to take a full hit of it unknowingly! It’s also a good practice to let other smokers know the ratio of weed to tobacco. Each to their own! But make sure you let others make an informed decision before they smoke any of your beautiful green.

While joints can still produce effects similar to pure smoking marijuana, the results of cannabis are likely to be milder than smoking a joint or joint. In addition, since tobacco is added to cannabis, the cerebral effects of smoking a joint become less severe. Tobacco also burns slightly more evenly than cannabis, making any joint burn more slowly (and objectively better) than a joint.

The taste of joints will be very different from the taste of joints but very similar to raw meat. 

Another point to consider is the effectiveness of the cannabis selected for joining in a joint, joint, or dead end.

The advantage of smoking joints is that you don’t expose yourself to tobacco or nicotine. You might argue that the joints are better for you because they are tobacco-free but have minimal benefits.

One way to get around these disadvantages is to limit the amount of tobacco curling into the joint. It depends on the amount of herb and tobacco you mix, but you will get less high because there is less cannabis.

Joints contain significantly higher levels of cannabis, often a whole gram of marijuana, than half that in a joint. However, the amount of cannabis in a joint is usually higher than in a joint. The ratio of cannabis to marijuana in a joint can vary depending on how it is made and where the joint comes from. Most joints – store-bought or DIY – contain no more than 50 percent tobacco because, if you want more tobacco than weed, buy a cigarette.
