Definition of 'SPLIFF'
A Spliff is generally a hand rolled marijuana cigarette, made out of rolling paper and ground cannabis. A spliff can also be rolled in a dried cannabis leaf – this is less common. Some Spliffs include home made filters such as a piece of folded business card or cigarette packet.
In some countries such as Australia and a lot of European countries spliffs are known as joints and they also contain ground tobacco, which can be added to the marijuana and ground up together or it can be ground up separately and added to the joint by sprinkling it over the ground marijuana before rolling up the joint.
Options for making a Spliff
Empty cigarette. This is made by holding a cigarette with the end facing down and gently rolling the cigarette between 2 fingers. This forces the cigarette tobacco to fall out. Once all the tobacco has fallen out of the cigarette you can fill it up with ground cannabis making a spliff.
It is not recommended that you use newspaper, napkins or tissue paper, these make a very unpleasant tasting spliffs as they usually have chemical additives such as ink, colors and perfumes in them.
Some people like to have a filter in their spliff, they place a filter in their hand rolled spliffs when making them or when making a spliff using a cigarette they replace the existing cigarette filter that comes in the cigarette with a home made filter. A lot of people replace the filters from cigarettes with their own filters as they believe the filters on cigarettes filter out to much, but some people do use them when rolling their own using rolling papers. Common filters used are ones taken from the cigarette, filters that are used for making your own cigarettes or rolling up a torn off piece of paper or cardboard and placed it into the end of the rolling paper. Another option that people use for a filter in a spliff is cotton wool or a make up cotton wool bud.
A commonly asked question is should you use tobacco or no tobacco in your spliff. This is personal preference, some people add tobacco to make the spliff/joint last longer and to save money, others enjoy the tobacco taste. Adding tobacco is more popular in some countries than others so it is up to you.
