What are Backwoods?
Backwoods are the result of changing tobacco laws in the ‘70s that made it difficult to advertise tobacco as people became aware of its health hazards. To get around this, Backwoods created and branded little cigars that could still be advertised on television, avoiding the new laws and still hitting a target audience.
Backwood cigars consist of a tobacco leaf wrapper filled with aged tobacco. They come in several flavors which can make for slightly different experiences smoking, from Honey Berry to Black‘n Sweet and Wild‘n Mild. Their leaf wrapper makes for a perfect opportunity to rip them open and fill them with weed without even having to slice down the middle like you would to make a blunt with other cigars. Here’s what you’re going to need if you want to learn how to roll a backwoods:
