Secrets To A Rose Petal Blunt: Sourcing Your Petals
Sure, you can run out to your neighbor’s backyard and start pillaging, but there are better ways to get your rose petals. For instance, your local florist won’t think you’re too weird if you ask to buy some rose petals. After all, romantics have been doing it for years.
If you do want to forage your own petals, consider common external factors you want to avoid. These include local dog urine, pesticides, and even fertilizers. Basically, you want to know as much as you can about how this plant was treated before you plucked it.
To be super safe, give the petals a wash and a good rinse before you pop them in the oven. We’re getting to that part.
Secrets To A Rose Petal Blunt: Processing Your Petals
Now you’ve got your petals and you’ve washed them. You have to dry them out a bit before you can start rolling.
You need an oven and a cookie sheet or a food dehydrator for this step. If you use a dehydrator, you’ll have to check your petals as drying time will vary. You don’t want them to become crumbly dry. Conversely, they have to remain pliable enough to roll. The consistency and texture you’re going for is pliant but slightly wilted.
For the oven method, pop your petals onto a baking sheet and under a broiler for about 10 seconds. As someone who has burned a lot of garlic bread that way, I caution you to pay close attention to this step.
Now, select three or so petals, lick them and stick them together. There is some trial and error here, but aim for a space that will let you roll something decent inside. It should look like a rose petal bowl. Back into the oven for a couple of minutes to help them seal to each other.

First of all, you can do this with any flower petal that’s safe to consume so roses aren’t the only candidate. Hibiscus are next on my personal list!
Anyway back to the point, put some nice stash into your petals and roll like you would a blunt. After you’ve rolled it up, pop it back under the broiler for another 10 seconds. This video should help.
Now you’re ready to get in on this trend with very little effort. Remember this one on Valentine’s Day, guys! Your S.O. will thank you.
