Crafting the Perfect Cannabis Cigar: A Comprehensive Guide to Cannagars


In recent years, cannabis enthusiasts have been exploring new ways to elevate their smoking experience, leading to the rising popularity of cannagars. These luxurious cannabis cigars offer a unique and flavorful alternative to traditional joints and blunts. Crafted with care and precision, cannagars have become a symbol of sophistication and creativity within the cannabis community.

Purple Rose Supply is at the forefront of this movement, offering innovative products designed to help enthusiasts craft cannagars at home. With their high-quality molds and kits, Purple Rose Supply has made it easier than ever to enjoy the art of cannagar rolling.

What is a Cannagar?

A cannagar, short for cannabis cigar, is a hand-rolled cigar-like smokeable made entirely of cannabis. Unlike traditional joints or blunts, which are typically rolled using rolling papers or cigar wraps, cannagars are crafted using cannabis flower and concentrates. This results in a slow-burning, potent smoking experience that is perfect for special occasions or leisurely enjoyment.

The concept of the cannagar, or cannabis cigar, has its origins in Thailand, where it was traditionally known as the "Thai Stick." This term referred to a method of preparing cannabis by skewering buds onto a stick or stem, creating a compact and potent form of consumption. Today, cannagars have become popular and sought-after products, with enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike appreciating their unique characteristics and rich flavors.

Understanding Cannagar Molds and Kits

To craft the perfect cannagar, one must first understand the importance of using high-quality molds and kits. Purple Rose Supply offers various molds and kits specially designed to help shape and compress the cannabis into a dense, cigar-like shape. 

A typical Purple Rose Supply cannagar kit includes the mold, skewers for airflow, a packing tool, and wooden tips. These components work together to help you quickly create a perfectly rolled cannagar. Using a kit not only streamlines the rolling process but also ensures consistency in size and density, resulting in a better smoking experience.

Essential Tools and Materials

To craft a cannagar using Purple Rose Supply's products, you will need the following tools and materials:

  1. High-quality cannabis flower: Choose a strain that complements your taste preferences and desired effects.
  2. Cannabis concentrates: Optional, but can enhance the potency and flavor of your cannagar.
  3. Cannagar mold: Essential for shaping and compressing the cannabis into a cigar-like shape.
  4. Skewers: These are used to create perfect airflow in the cannagar.
  5. Packing tool: Helps pack the cannabis tightly into the mold.

When sourcing your cannabis and concentrates, it's essential to choose high-quality products from reputable sources. This will ensure a smooth and enjoyable smoking experience.

Step-by-Step Guide to Crafting Cannagars

Step 1: Prepare your materials

  • Grind your cannabis flower to a medium-fine consistency. 
  • Prepare your rolling paper.

Step 2: Load the mold 

  • Insert the skewer through the bottom of the Purple Rose Supply Cannagar Mold. 
  • Then, drop the flower in the mold and pack it down with the packing tool.

Step 3: Remove the packed core from the mold

  • You can roll the packed core in your favorite concentrate for an enhanced experience. (This is optional)

Step 4: Finish your cannagar

  • To make your cannagar, you can pack the core in Purple Rose Supply's paper hemp shells. They are ready to use straight out of the box, so you’ll get a perfect fit every time. 
  • If you are using other wraps, you can use Cannagar Rolling Glue to seal the rolling paper. 
  • Once you've wrapped the core, remove the wooden skewer and attach the wooden mouthpiece to one end of your cannagar.

Step 5: Enjoy Your Cannagar

  • When you light your cannagar, ensure the cherry is fully lit before puffing. 
  • While smoking it, take slow and steady puffs. 
  • Make sure to puff on it like a cigar, rather than a joint, so it doesn’t get too hot. 

Tips and Tricks for Success

  • Experiment with different strains and concentrates to create unique flavor profiles.
  • Depending on the size, use a torch lighter to ensure an even burn.
  • Store your cannagars in a cool, dry place to preserve freshness and flavor.  When on the go, use Purple Rose Supply’s portable humidor.


Crafting the perfect cannagar is an art form that requires patience, skill, and attention to detail. With Purple Rose Supply's high-quality, food-grade molds, kits, and accessories, you can create a cannagar that will impress even the pickiest cannabis connoisseur.

So, gather your supplies, roll up your sleeves, and get ready to enjoy the luxurious experience of smoking your very own cannabis cigar.
