You don't need to be many miles away from civilization to enjoy a good Backwoods blunt. So named for the Backwoods Smokes, developed in the 1970s and heavily marketed towards outdoorsy type smokers, a Backwoods product was one of the first cigarillos, small cigars, to hit the market. Unlike other tobacco products at the time, Backwoods weren't wrapped in cheap paper. Instead, they were decked out in a tobacco leaf itself, without any additives. Unlike other blunt wraps, they also had more complex flavors; some vintage flavors are collectors' items today since they are no longer in circulation.
At the time, many predicted that Backwoods wouldn't make it, mainly because the tobacco leaves were much more delicate than paper and had a tendency to fall apart. However, the brand was eagerly adopted not only by regular tobacco smokers but also by the cannabis culture itself because there's a first time for everything.
