Rolling Blunts With Rose Petals Is The Latest Cannabis Trend

There was a time, way back when, that smoking cannabis was pretty much the preserve of the long-haired hippy and the 1960s freak.

And if they could go to San Francisco with a flower in their hair, then they could probably combine that with their other interest.

Certainly, one Twitter user has managed the trick. Twitter user @simple_sasha posted a video last week entitled: "HOW TO ROLL A ROSE BLUNT," that has gone viral, garnering 93,000 retweets and an astonishing 256,000 likes.

The video, which runs for just over two minutes, shows Sasha explaining in detail how to make a blunt cannabis cigarette with rose petals as opposed to long rolling papers.

Of course, when a video goes as viral as Sasha's did, it is sure to generate as many questions as it provides answers. Everything from: "What did it taste like?" - the answer, according to Sasha herself being: "It's almost sweet and a little earthy," to: "Is it safe?" - the answer to which is probably dependent on how safe you think marijuana is in the first place.

The Texas-based Twitter sensation hasn't yet offered any insight into how it was that she came across this novel method, but that hasn't stopped other social media users from copying her style and indeed, experimenting with their own creations.

Plenty of users have now posted their own photographs of the so-called 'rose blunt' with the message posting site Reddit registering hundreds of thousands of comments.

According to the video, it takes around two minutes to turn rose petals into rolling papers and involves nothing more than a normal domestic oven.

Others have warned about the potential dangers of chemicals being sprayed the petals, however.

Style advice runs from: "Don't do this with purchased flowers'," which is pinned to the top of the message board, presumably because of the increased safety risks, and: "As a licensed pest control adviser, please do not ever do this with flowers you bought.

"There are very, very dangerous chemicals that are legally and liberally applied to ornamental flowers which are absolutely unsafe to consume - particularly by combustion."

Another user does question what part of the blunt is the most dangerous, writing: "I have not read anything indicating that roses naturally produce chemicals more toxic to burn than cannabis," while another brings into question the price, stating: "Roses are much more expensive than tobacco."
