It was mesmerizing. Twitter user @Simple_Sasha made the process look so effortless, like she had been rolling these romantic rippers from the first day she started smoking. But it couldn’t be as easy as Sasha made it look in the short clip, for we’d have been smoking these beautiful blunts from the jump. I set out to investigate.

Though Sasha secured what appeared to be a fully intact rose for her demonstration, I couldn’t be so sure I’d nail these blunts on the first few tries. A dozen roses are expensive, to say the least — I’m just lucky we weren’t trying these out in early February.
