How to roll the perfect cannabis joint in 7 easy steps (Full Guide)

Seven simple methods to rolling a joint The joint is among the most well-known cannabis consumption methods, and it’s a terrific way to experience the flavor of flower. Every cannabis user need to be able to roll a joint.

Whatever you do, make sure your product burns smoothly and evenly. There are innumerable perspectives on the various ways to roll one up.

A joint contains how much cannabis?

To get started, we advise using a half gram of marijuana and 114 size rolling papers. This is a sufficient amount of marijuana for a couple, and starting out small will make rolling the joint easier.

For comparison, the majority of pre-rolls found in shops are one full gram in size, however some are available in 2-packs of half-grams.

When you master the art of rolling, you can expand your smoking horizons by switching to king-sized papers and full-gram joints.

The best way to choose rolling paper

Rolling papers are available in a huge variety of sizes, textures, and even tastes.

Due to their ease of rolling and ability to accommodate a crutch or filter, size 114 sheets are the industry standard for rolling joints. They measure 3 inches long and 114 inches wide. Orange Zig-Zags are typical 114 sheets.

Single wides, which are 1 inch wide and somewhat smaller than 114’s, are frequently used as standard cigarette rolling papers. White Zig-Zag papers are typical single-wide papers.

Since 112 papers are a little wider than 114 papers, bigger joints are possible.

Additionally common, and often bigger and longer than all of the above, are king size papers. They work well if you want a sizable smoking circle.

You can also get rolls of paper that are up to 16 feet long and come in any of the above lengths; simply pull off a piece from the roll for however long you want a joint to be.

All of the aforementioned sizes are available in both ordinary and slim (or thin) variations; the slims are more delicate and rip-prone but have a milder paper flavor.

How to roll a joint – Let’s GO!

Here is our straightforward, seven-step tutorial on how to roll a traditional cone joint quickly and easily, even for novices.

Gather your rolling equipment first:

  • Cannabis strain of your choice
  • Rolling papers
  • Crutch (for the joint tip)
  • Cannabis grinder
  • Optional: A pen or other thin object to help pack the joint

1. First, grind good cannabis

Grind your cannabis into shake using a grinder. The consistency of the filling, ease of rolling, and even burn of the joint are all benefits of grinding the weed. Additionally, a grinder prevents your hands from becoming oily and clinging to the rolling paper.

Cannabis that has been properly dried should be simple to break down. You can cut herb into smaller pieces with scissors or your hands if you don’t have a grinder.

2. Create a crutch or filter

Create a crutch, sometimes referred to as a tip or filter. Start by folding the crutch in a few “accordion” fashion, then roll it until the joint’s required thickness is reached.
You can create a crutch out of almost anything, but we advise using filter tips, which are paper pieces that are both thin and strong. Additionally reliable options are business cards, rolling paper packs, and other thin pieces of cardboard.

Although it’s not necessary, a crutch gives the joint more stability and makes it possible to smoke the entire joint without risking finger burns. As you smoke, it also makes it less likely that the shake will spill out the end or into your mouth.

3. Put the cannabis in the rolling paper

Roll the paper up, place the crutch at one end, and add the shake. When the paper has the appropriate quantity—usually between a half and a full gram—you may start forming and shaping the joint with your fingertips.

A brief word about papers: There are numerous varieties and flavors of rolling papers available. There are different papers for each smoker, but many people choose hemp papers because they tend to be light but sturdy and burn consistently without changing the flavor of your pot.

4. Roll the paper now

Roll the paper after you’ve loaded and molded your joint. To pack the cannabis into its final cone shape, pinch the paper in your hands and roll it back and forth.

5. Sealing the junction

This stage has the power to improve or degrade your joint’s quality. Roll the paper up from the unglued side inward, then use a small amount of moisture to lick the edge of the glued side to tack down one end.

Start with the crutch side to help the paper roll around itself while providing guidance.

Once one end of the paper has been tacked down, you can continue working your way along the seam by tucking and sealing the junction.

6. Pack the joint

To help ensure an equal burn, pack the joint’s open end. Although a pen is ideal, you may use just about any thin object.

The end of your shoelace, the drawstring on your sweater, or a little stick are all suitable alternatives if you’re on the move. Twist the tip to seal it up if you don’t want to ignite your joint right immediately.

7. Enjoy it!
