What are the benefits of smoking rose petals?

Rolling your rose petal blunt
Rolling a rose petal blunt can be relatively simple. And although it may require more effort and time than rolling with regular paper, it's totally worth it!
- You will need to pull at least three rose petals from your organic rose. Note that larger blunts may require more petals.
- Carefully place the petals on an oven-safe pan. Put them in a preheated oven (185 degrees) and heat for a couple of seconds (10 seconds are ideal).
- Once your petals are cooled, you'll notice that they have changed color and may appear slightly darker.
- Now, you lick the bottom of your petal in the area where it was attached to the stem; to make it sticky so that you'll stick them together end-to-end so they overlap.
- Put the now overlapping petals back into the oven for another 10 seconds until they are firmly stuck together.
- Once the petals cool down, they will be drier and more sturdy, and it's now time to roll your cannabis the same way you do with paper.
- Once this is done, your magical rose petal blunt will be ready. Isn't that amazing?
- Finally, light that lady up and smoke the flavorsome hits out of her!
Note that rose petals have a floral and pleasing aroma. Therefore, you're better off using weed strains that will complement its flavor.

After rolling your rose petal joint, and perhaps it's not very firm, you can put it back in the oven for another 10 seconds. Don't let the petals exceed 10 seconds in the oven, as they might burn and ruin the whole process!
Once out of the oven, do not smoke the blunt immediately, even if its smell is so tantalizing. You must always give it some time to cool down, say 2 minutes. Smoking the blunt immediately may not give you the aroma and experience that you seek.
