A Dutch Master blunt

A blunt is a cigar or (L) which is wider than a cigarillo and not quite as wide as a traditional cigar. These cigars typically consist of two main parts; the inner leaf, which is similar to a cigarette rolling paper, except it is made of tobacco, and a thicker outer leaf which is rolled around the inner leaf in a spiral. In many commercially available blunts, the "leaves" are not actual tobacco leaves but rather paper made from tobacco pulp. The term blunt generally does not refer to more expensive, hand-rolled cigars.

Blunts get their name from their 'broad or rounded tip', and were named as such in the 1800s to differentiate them from other cigars with a tapered, pointed tip. [1] Later, as specialized tools were created and machines gradually replaced humans in the rolling process, blunts began to be characterized by a tapered, yet still open, smoking end, pre-clipped during manufacturing. The word blunt is also sometimes used as street slang in certain areas for cigar or cigarillo which has had its tobacco filling removed by the consumer in order to replace it with marijuana, Damiana or other smoking herbs.
