Making of a Filterless Joint
Step 1: Grind the Herbs
Start with removing any stems or seeds from the buds. Then grind the herb but make sure to not form a complete powder out of it. If you need a good pull-on inhaling, just don’t grind it into a fine powder. You can also roll a spliff here which is a joint made by mixing cannabis and tobacco.
In this case you will need lesser amount of cannabis to fill the joint.
You can either grind the herb using your fingers or a pair of scissors or simply by using a grinder. Personally, I like to user grinder for my stuff. It grinds even the sticky buds very well. Also, the sticky herbs might require a little more grinding than the dry herbs. Once you are done grinding, move to the next step.

Step 2: Fill in the Joint
Now take a rolling paper and keep the sticky part on the upper side. Turn the sticky part on your side and put the grinded herbs in the paper. You can take half a gram of weed on a normal 11/4 sized rolling paper. Spread the stuff all over the paper. Evenly if you want a long and even joint like a cigarette.
But if you wish to make it conical or in the shape of a baseball, then put more weed on the one side and less on the other.
Once you are done placing the herbs, pinch the non-sticky bottom of the paper with the upper side. Once you have both the ends in your hand, proceed to the next step to roll it!
Step 3: Give it the Shape
Between your thumb and index finger, move the filled paper back and forth. At the same time, press the weed down gently. Just keep in mind to hold it at both the ends. Now rub your fingers up and down and then take the bottom part of the paper downwards. When you do so, it is the time to roll the joint!
Step 4: Roll the Joint
First off, tuck in the bottom side of the paper and then roll it. Move the thumbs upward as you roll. Now lick the upper sticky part of the paper slowly while rolling the joint till it is sealed. You are not totally done yet. Follow the below important step next.

Step 5: Pack the Joint
Many people skip this part of packing the joint, but this one is actually very important. The herbs filled in the joint can be very hard to smoke if they are too tight and if they are loosely packed, then they will burn too fast and not evenly. Hence, it is important that you properly pack the roll.
You can make use of a pencil, bobby pin or a Q-Tip to pack the roll. By using any of these items, push the herbs back. Do so for both the sides and once you are done, chose one end of your joint to close it. Fold the paper inwards using your fingers. If you are making a conical joint, you will have to close the thinner side.
While you are doing all of this closing, do not forget to give some attention to the open side as some stuff might drop from that side of the joint. If you have dropped some, then grab it with your fingers and put it back in. Lastly, twist that open part to make it look like a wick of a candle.
