A spliff was, originally, a Jamaican term for a large cone-shaped smoking device carved of wood and packed full of cannabis (possibly mixed with tobacco leaf (fronta) or pieces, as per one's taste). Eventually rolling papers replaced the solid cone. Outside of Jamaica, the word has diverse meanings.

Spliff is slang for a cigarette rolled with cannabis, sometimes including tobacco or other substances. Spliffs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and have plenty of slang synonyms, including joints, zoots, doobies, and reefers to name a few. In the United Kingdom, the phrase "skinning up" is commonly used to describe the creation of a cannabis or cannabis/tobacco combination cigarette, whereas the term "rolling" or "rolling up" is commonly used in the United States. Occasionally psychotropic agents apart from cannabis or tobacco are consumed in a spliff. This includes i.e. Methamphetamine, Opium, PCP, etc. Slang is the use of highly informal words and expressions that are not considered standard in the speakers dialect or language. ...

Variations

There are many variations on the way a spliff can be made.


European variations include the "Spanish Crutch" where a ΒΌ inch (6 mm) of a cigarette is used as the roach/crutch, and the "Flaming Backflip" where the paper is folded inside out before rolling, and carefully rolled with the gum being licked then tucked in first to ensure only one layer of paper is used. Hashish is more common in Europe than in the States, and it is extremely impractical to roll or smoke a hashish spliff without another substance (ie tobacco), so this too can affect the way it is consumed. In the United Kingdom and in many parts of Europe, the spliff comprises a cannabis/tobacco mix and is made from a king sized paper, and most smokers take particular pride in their rolling abillites, so much so it is often a point of contention.

In the U.S., where flowered marijuana is most common, spliffs are generally made without tobacco or crutches/roach and usually with small rolling papers.


There is a growing contingent of enthusiasts interested in preparing spliffs of different shapes and sizes, from the famed Camberwell carrot to more esoteric constructions that have a degree of engineering to them, such as the Dutch Tulip.

In the United Kingdom, high potency marijuana when mixed with hashish into a spliff is known as a Jesusstick.


Tobacco debate

Many anti-tobacco smokers see tobacco as unnecessary and harmful to smoke. People who use tobacco claim it helps the spliff burn, when loose tobacco acts as "kindling" to ignite the moister and denser cannabis. Tobacco significantly reduces the temperature at which a spliff burns, the most harmful factor in smoking-related illness.[citation needed] Tobacco can also be used to provide a buffer between the roach and cannabis, as it is otherwise difficult to smoke all the cannabis without it either becoming too hot or smoking some of the roach. on tobacco usage see Tobacco smoking Species Nicotiana acuminata Nicotiana alata Nicotiana attenuata Nicotiana benthamiana Nicotiana clevelandii Nicotiana excelsior Nicotiana forgetiana Nicotiana glauca Nicotiana glutinosa Nicotiana langsdorffii Nicotiana longiflora Nicotiana obtusifolia Nicotiana paniculata Nicotiana plumbagifolia Nicotiana quadrivalvis Nicotiana repanda Nicotiana rustica Nicotianasuaveolens Nicotiana sylvestris Nicotiana tabacum Nicotiana tomentosa Ref: ITIS... Kindling is material for starting a fire. ...


"Roach"

The most distinct product of the spliff is the roach, or unburnt unconsumed butt end. Roaches are either consumed much in the same way as the rest of the spliff, sometimes with the aid of a roach clip, or are saved, usually to be combined with other roaches and rerolled into a composite spliff. Sometimes the roaches of these "roach spliffs" will be saved, in order to make what is called a second generation roach joint. This procedure can continue on and on to get 3rd, 4th, and even higher generation roach joints. A popular style of roach clips are medical stats. ...


Roaches are often seen as unpleasant and it is considered an arduous task to possess and transport a roach, therefore many users simply throw them out. The surefire method to avoid handling roaches is to create a buffer of tobacco at the butt end to ensure all the psychoactive material is combusted. A psychoactive drug or psychotropic substance is a chemical that alters brain function, resulting in temporary changes in perception, mood, consciousness, or behaviour. ...
