Much like the finest fabrics, aged whiskeys and architectural feats, the fanciest art of blunt rolling originated way before our time. In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, Thailand and Vietnam became the birthplace of the OG Thai Stick, better known as Cannacigars.

When Thai Sticks were sold in ‘Nam and Thailand, U.S. soldiers would buy them for easy smoking on the go. They’re wrapped in a hemp line for easy transport, which then sparked the idea of shipping them back to the U.S. – but government officials got hip to this and cracked down.

They might have also cracked down on drug trafficking because they were also dipped in opiates at the time.

Why Canna Thai Sticks?

The differences between your regular old Backwoods and these sticks are pretty obvious. First, they are visually more appealing and that pure green is easier on the lungs. Second, they require days to prepare and some fine motor skills. And third, a Canna Thai Stick is guaranteed to knock you on your ass.

Don’t get me wrong. A nice Backwoods rolled blunt is my post-work cocktail. But this Canna Thai Stick is the crème de la crème of blunts if I’ve ever seen one.

How are they made?

Canna Thai Sticks are pure cannabis flowers in nug form, tied to a stick with hemp, and then they are kept vacuum sealed for days. This helps the cannabis form to the shape of the stick without drying out. After 2-3 days in the seal, the weed forms a perfect tube-like shape, which can then be dipped in concentrates like a sealant. Then it is wrapped in raw marijuana leaves, which adhere easily to the concentrates, or left without the wrap.

After removing the stick, your weed will be a perfect cigar shape, just without a wrap. Some smokers even top it with vape and hash.

The nugs (approx. 3-4 nugs), wax (approx. 1-2 grams of concentrate) and whatever else you use to make this thing look like a piece of art, will burn about 1 inch per minute and leave you space high.

It’s a real investment of time and money, but if vaping isn’t your style and blunts/joints are a little too harsh for you, Canna Thai Sticks are an awesome way to smoke up and pay your respects to true artistry.
