How To Use Fronto Leaf For Wraps or Grabba? Here Are Some Guidelines To Follow:
- The process will be the same whether you have purchased a pre-packaged Fronto Leaf or you took advantage of wholesale pricing by purchasing Fronto Leaf by the pound. You begin by opening the bag.
- Before you go much further, make sure your Fronto Leaf has a good moisture level. If your leaf is dry and brittle (not easily pliable), you risk damage if you handle it in this state. To bring a dry leaf back to life, just mist it with water and seal it back up in the package until it absorbs enough moisture to regain pliability. If the leaf ends up getting overly moist just leave it out to dry in the open air until it is just right.
- You can cut wraps out of the leaf alongside the veins. Some people like to leave the veins in one side of the wrap to add an element of rigidity.
- If you are using Fronto Leaf as Grabba Leaf, let the leaf air dry and then crush it up to smoke as needed.
