The History of Lomboy Leaves
The common practice here in the Philippines is to use Brown Lomboy Leaves to roll tobacco cigarettes. This practice goes back at least 200 years and is most commonly seen now in the southern region of the Visayas and Mindanao. The picture below is what I found at the local markets when I first came here in 2012 and it’s also what inspired Jungle Blunts.
Below is a full illustration of how to roll a Lomboy leaf. It took me a few tries to get it perfect but the key is using a lighter under the wrap once you complete rolling it. This makes the leaf curl up and tighten. I learned that from an old-timer in the jungle.
