An individual woodtip Swisher Sweets cigar.
|Produced by||Swisher International Group|
Jacksonville, Florida, U.S.
A cigar company was given to David Swisher in 1856. Swisher Sweets were introduced in 1957.
Use in cannabis culture
Although Swisher Sweets are a tobacco product, it is estimated that as many as three-fourths of all Swisher Sweets bought are not used as intended. Instead, many people buy them as "blunt wraps". Emptying a Swisher Sweet or other cigar of tobacco and refilling it with cannabis is known as rolling a "blunt". The explosion of the cannabis industry in the United States since the mid-2000s has more than likely contributed to Swisher Sweets being the top-selling cigar in America.
This was highlighted in an episode of the TV show Atlanta "Atlanta (TV Series)" with a parody of a Swisher Sweets commercial where several customers are seen purchasing the cigarillos for use in rolling blunts.
