Glass blunts are conquering the market, as plenty of smokers have started to embrace this relatively new way of enjoying their favorite herbs.
Glass blunts are easy to use, they require minimal maintenance, and have high functionality and longevity. However, if you’ve never tried glass blunts before, you probably have a lot of questions.
When you order our complete glass blunt kit, there will be a lot of parts inside and you probably won’t know much about what each part does. But don’t worry — we are here to teach you how to use a glass blunt like an expert.
This article will guide you through all the necessary steps you need to take in order to start enjoying your herbs like a boss. You can also take a look at the video on our YouTube channel that shows how to set up our glass blunt in less than two minutes.
A glass blunt is a relatively simple contraption that lets you enjoy smoking in a more practical way. Once you see the device, you will surely figure out how to set it up by yourself. However, if you want to make sure you’re doing everything correctly, follow these simple steps:
Remove the twisty screw so that you can put the herbs inside the tube. You don’t have to unscrew it; just pull it out. Make sure that you have a silicone cap on the other end of the tube firmly in place so nothing spills out.
Fill the tube with herbs. Make sure not to put too little or too much inside so the smoke can travel freely. Around one gram (1g) is considered an optimal amount. Of course, you don’t have to smoke it all at once. If there’s something left after your smoking session, put the silicon cap back on and store the herbs for later.
Once you are done filling the tube, put the screw back inside. Twist the screw in a counterclockwise direction until the contents are evenly distributed throughout the glass tube. Push the screw in until it clicks to make sure that it’s locked firmly in place.
Remove the silicone cap at the other end of the tube and light up. To dispose of the ash, twist the screw in a clockwise direction.
Congratulations! You have now learned how to use a glass blunt. Enjoy!
Once you light up, make sure to take a strong hit so that the blunt stays lit. Nevertheless, the blunt might get extinguished after a while, but that’s normal after every couple of minutes of smoking.
You should grind your herbs before putting them in the tube. You can also put in some ground tobacco. Even though the tube can hold around one gram, you can only fill it halfway through. Once you put in the twisty part, the contents will get evenly distributed throughout the tube.
You don’t have to worry about burning your fingers or lips. The glass is designed in a way to withstand high temperatures. It’s completely burn-proof, unlike paper blunts and joints. The smoke cools down while traveling through the tube, providing you with more pleasant hits.

Each glass blunt box consists of two glass tubes. One tube will only contain the twisty part, while the other will have the cleaning kit together with some spare parts. The box itself is very practical for carrying around, and it opens and closes using a magnetic button.
You will get a total of three silicone caps in the box. These caps are rather small and you can easily lose them, so it’s wise to always have a few extra ones, just in case. Silicone caps are used on one end of the glass tube to prevent the herbs from spilling out while you’re inserting them in the blunt. You can also put silicone caps on both sides and use the tube for storing the weed.
The other glass tube you get is identical to the original one. Apart from storing the cleaning kit, you can use it for smoking if the other tube breaks.
You will notice that there is also a small O ring in the box. This ring is placed between the glass blunt and the spiral, making sure that everything is air-tight and that there’s no smoke coming out while you’re using the blunt.
The box also contains a brush and a picker tool. These two items are used for cleaning the blunts, which is exactly what we will talk about next.
Apart from knowing how to use a glass blunt, you should also know how to properly clean it. As we mentioned at the beginning, our glass blunts are low maintenance, but you should still take care of them if you want to have the best possible smoking experience.
All you need in order to clean the glass blunt is the brush and the picker tool. The brush is used for cleaning the debris inside the tube and around the spiral. You can also use warm water to wash the parts but make sure that they dry completely before you use the blunt again.
On the other hand, a picker tool is a small nano brush used for cleaning the smoking holes. These holes can get clogged up with residue after you’ve used the blunt for a while, so make sure to clean them regularly so you can allow the free flow of smoke.

Although using the glass blunt is pretty simple, you will have instructions drawn at the bottom of the box to help you out with each step. These instructions can also come in handy if you’re buying the blunt as a gift, so you don’t have to explain to the other person how to use a glass blunt.
