A joint is one of the most popular and best-enjoyed ways of taking weed. Joints are convenient and discreet. However, not all joints come pre-rolled. Unlike Delta-8 vapes or pre-rolls, rolling a joint is a skill you may want to have.
Rolling your own joint allows you to control the amount and quality of the cannabis you use, as well as the size and shape of the joint. It can also be a fun and social activity to share with friends. Rolling a joint can be a bit tricky at first, but with some practice, you can develop your own style and technique.
When rolling a joint, it’s important to use high-quality rolling papers and to evenly distribute the cannabis to ensure a smooth and consistent burn. Using a filter or crutch can also help prevent bits of cannabis from getting into your mouth while smoking.
How To Roll A Joint
Knowing how to roll a joint may take some practice and some wonky-looking joints, but it pays off. However, first, you must know a good joint is only as solid as its contents. Using high-quality cannabis and evenly distributing it is crucial to rolling a good joint. Don’t be discouraged if your first few attempts don’t turn out perfectly – practice makes perfect!
What You need:
- Rolling tray
- Rolling paper
- Crutch or filter
- A packer (maybe a pen or chopstick)
- Your choice of flower
What Are Rolling Papers
Rolling papers are thin, lightweight sheets of paper that are used to roll cannabis into a joint. They come in various sizes and materials, including wood pulp, rice, and hemp. Rolling papers are typically sold in small booklets and are available in different flavors and designs. They can be used by both beginner, and experienced smokers to roll their own joints and have become a popular way of consuming cannabis. Some rolling paper brands also offer other accessories, such as filters, tips, and rolling machines, to make the process easier and more enjoyable.
Steps To Rolling A Joint
Rolling a joint is a skill that takes practice, but with some patience and persistence, it can be a fun and rewarding experience. Here are some general steps to follow when rolling a joint.
Grind The Flower
Use a grinder to break the flower into fine, even pieces. Alternatively, use your hands or scissors. With your hands, pull the flowers apart carefully to avoid damaging them.
Using a grinder is a great way to break down your cannabis into evenly-sized pieces, but you can also use your hands or scissors if you prefer. Just be sure to handle the flower gently to avoid damaging the delicate trichomes.
Make A Crutch/Filter
A crutch acts like a stopper, protecting your hands and lips from getting burnt. Fold a small cardboard like an accordion and place it at the end of the rolling paper.
Using a crutch, also known as a filter, can help prevent bits of cannabis from getting into your mouth while smoking and also provide a stable base for your joint. You can easily make one by folding a small piece of cardboard into an accordion shape and placing it at one end of the rolling paper.
Fill The Joint
Next, load the joint with the flower, and line it to the crutch evenly but don’t overstuff it.
When loading the joint, it’s important to evenly distribute the cannabis and avoid overstuffing it, which can cause the joint to burn unevenly or be difficult to draw from. Take your time to carefully fill the joint, leaving some space at the end to allow for a proper seal.
Roll The Joint
After loading the joint, carefully tuck the flowers and roll the non-adhesive end of the flap over it. Then, roll the adhesive part and wet or lick it to glue it down. Using a packer, gently push the flowers toward the mouthpiece and replace any that may have fallen off during the rolling process.
Twist off the other end of the paper, light it up, and enjoy your joint.
