What is the Twisty Glass Blunt?
The Twisty Glass Blunt comes in all shapes and colors, designed to look like a traditional glass cone. It has a similar feel to smoking a blunt but doesn’t make your lungs hurt as much. The kit comes with a glass tube, brass screw, and two black rubber caps. This tube is made of heat-resistant Pyrex glass, so you won’t burn your hands while holding it. The brass screw is an essential component of this piece. It acts as the mouthpiece and helps pack the weed together throughout the smoking process. The rubber caps are to make sure weed doesn’t get wasted and fall out the other side of the glass tube while you are packing it.
The Twisty Glass Blunt comes in five different sizes:
- Glass Mini – 0.5 grams
- Glass Blunt – 2 grams
- Glass Slim – 1.3 grams
- Twisty XL – 4 grams
- Super Twisty – 2 ounces
They have a size for every type of smoker. If you smoke by yourself, the Glass Mini is a great option. If you are looking for a larger size then the Glass Blunt and Glass Slim have great options.
While an interesting experiment, a Super Twisty is not necessary to smoke 2 ounces of blunt.
The two most popular sizes are the Glass Blunt (2 grams) and the Glass Slim (1.3 grams). This could be because they are both similar in size to an actual blunt and/or because it’s the cheapest option priced at $49.99.
At first, $50 may seem like an expensive price for a blunt compared to wraps that typically cost $2 each. But if you calculate the total money you have wasted on those wraps over time, it can add up to more than $50.
The Twisty XL is priced at $89.99 because it can pack 4 grams of weed in its large size, weighing more and requiring more material to manufacture.
There are many designs to choose from based on the price you’re looking for, as well as your style.
How Does the Twisty Glass Blunt Work?
The Twisty Glass Blunt comes with a glass tube, a screw attached to the mouthpiece, and 2 black rubber covers for the tube. TThis glass and screw are made from high-quality materials, which give it a little more weight than you may expect. The Twisty Glass Blunt can be used in 4 simple steps:
Remove the screw from the glass tube. Put the tube on its side, then put a black rubber cap on the open end of the tube.
Fill the tube with dried herb. You can fill it completely or halfway. The glass blunt is a great choice because you can choose how much tobacco you want to put in.
Twist and push the screw into the tube. When twisting make sure you rotate it counter-clockwise to pack herb into the tube properly. Once the screw has been completely screwed in and the mouthpiece is attached, remove the black rubber cap on the opposite side from where it was first. For best packing, the herb should be packed tightest at this end.
To use the Twisty Glass Blunt is as easy as lighting it up. Just like every other blunt once the glass blunt is lit you will have to ash it. This can be done by turning the stick clockwise, which depletes all of the herbs at the forwards and empties the ash into a container. The ash can be removed with a lighter if it extends past the joint, or some fingers if there is still enough to hold onto. Twisting the screw clockwise will result in a cleaner hit since more greens are near the tip of the glass tube. With Twisty’s Glass Blunt, picking up where you left off can be as easy as grabbing your lighter and hitting the bowl.
Pros and Cons of the Twisty Glass Blunt
This table compares the pros and cons of a Twisty Glass Blunt. Pros are shown in green, cons are shown in red.
There are many reasons to choose a Twisty Glass Blunt over using a regular blunt.
1. No Tobacco
Twisty’s Glass Blunt is typically healthier than tobacco leaf wraps. Blunts are great for any smoking circle but the health complications are just not worth it. Wiz Khalifa, one of the most popular pot smokers and joint enthusiasts, has come to this realization. Rick Ross has also claimed to share the same change in his smoking style even though he used to smoke multiple blunts in one sitting. We get it, blunts are awesome because they are easy to pass, hold a lot of herbs, and usually only need to be lit once. This is what makes Twisty’s Glass Blunt so great. It can hold the same amount if not more than any blunt, it is intended to be passed like a blunt, and it produces an extremely clean hit every time.
2. Cleaner Hits
The Twisty Glass Blunt is designed with Cool Pull technology. This technology is what provides you with such a smooth hit every time. A screw slows down the smoke by double the length of how much it needs to travel through. This gives the auger enough time to absorb the heat which results in a 30% cooler hit. Not only does the smoke get hot from a blunt but the blunt itself gets hot as well. The Twisty Glass Blunt is made by rolling tobacco or other herbs inside a glass tube, and then heating the tube until it becomes soft. Blunts are known to get hot towards the end once they are almost finished but the glass blunt does not get smaller. The Twisty Glass Blunt prevents the herb from burning closer to your face.
3. No Roach
As the herb starts to burn down, all you have to do is push it forward by turning the screw clockwise.
This allows you to use all of the weed instead of being leftover with a roach. The hits are a lot more fresh than a regular blunt because the burnt weed is pushed out and not flushed through the entire piece as a blunt does.
4. Doesn’t Fall Apart
Passing a blunt around also loosens it. The more hands the joint is passed between, the looser and more fragile it becomes. The Twisty Glass Blunt is made out of glass and will not easily fall apart because, as a blunt, it can’t be destroyed. The phone is very sturdy and could easily be passed from hand to hand.
5. No Scooby Snacks
When we say ‘Scooby Snacks’, we’re not talking about that delicious gummy everyone loves. We are talking about the little pieces of herb that shoot out of the blunt into your mouth while you are hitting it. The little pieces of herb taste nothing like the scooby snack gummies and are not enjoyable to eat while you are hitting a blunt. The Twisty mouthpiece and screw prevent vapor from escaping, preventing waste.
6. Saves Money
One of the great advantages of using a Twisty Glass Blunt is that you won’t need to buy wraps anymore! No more wanting to smoke a blunt with no wrapper. You no longer have to visit a store and pay $2 every day for wraps. Twisty Glass Blunt is a one-time payment and will never need to buy wraps again. If you spend an average of $10 per week on wraps, in a year, that adds up to $520. It’s equivalent to buying wraps at a rate of twice per month for a whole year. Long-term it makes financial sense if you are spending a lot of money on wraps.
As great as the glass blunt is every piece has its pros and cons. No product is perfect, and even the best needs a little improvement.
Although it’s cheaper than buying wraps all the time, $50 is still a fairly steep price. Joint papers are also very inexpensive, so switching from using blunts to smoking joints would negate that cost. Although this blunt may go for $50, it surprisingly does deliver a silky smooth hit.
One downside to this packaging is that it doesn’t burn as well or stay lit the entire time as a blunt wrap might. If you don’t hit your cigarette rapidly, it will go out; however, if you keep hitting it, the chances of it staying lit are greater. Smoking a twisty glass blunt can last for a short while before needing to be relit. Constantly lighting the blunt can be a hassle and make it feel like more of a smoking piece than a glass blunt.
Several articles have compared Twisty’s Glass Blunt to a glorified one-hitter. This is not always a bad thing, but this means that it’s less appealing to blunt smokers. In the end, it’s a blunt without much of a pinch. It’s shaped like a traditional cigarette but has the qualities of something you would smoke out of a bong or pipe.
A one-gram pack can be ready to go with a couple of hits, but the best way to smoke this weed is to relight it after two or three drags. Twisty’s Glass Blunt needs to be cranked throughout the smoking process to push the weed to the front of the tube, stalling the smoking process again.
This can deter stoners from trying such a product because of these comparisons but the reason this product is better is the quality of the hits you are getting.
The technology that is used cools the smoke down and produces a cleaner hit compared to any blunt you will smoke.
