This step by step guide explores various basic but essential tips necessary to make a perfect joint. So without further due, let’s get started!
Learning to roll, first, let’s understand the factors that can affect the joint quality.
A joint is made with a thin, translucent joint paper, filter, and grinded weed. Choose a good quality of the joint paper. The quality of the paper depends on its burn rate. If you use any ordinary paper, the rate of burning will be affected. The paper should be thin so that a large amount of air could pass through it.
Secondly, the bud should have little moisture. It should not be dry as it will burn at a high rate. There should be around 10% moisture level in the bud. When weed is harvested, they are subjected to the curing process which allows the water content to evaporate. If the weed is completely dry as a dry leaf, it will burn too rapidly leaving ashes.
Therefore, the quality of weed grains and joint paper should be checked before making a joint. So let’s start the tutorial.
How To Roll a Joint: First, let’s take a walk through the process; understand the concept and parts to focus while making a joint.
- Grind the weed
- Make a filter
- Even distribution of weed in the joint
- Tuck the paper
- At last lick, roll, seal, and smoke
With just these five steps you are going to master the joint-rolling course. Joints are rolls containing cannabis that are rolled with light, partially translucent paper with a filter. The filter provides stability to the joint and prevents your fingers from a burn.
So let’s get started with the first step in making a weed joint.
#1. Grind the Weed
The first step is making a weed joint is grinding the weed into small particles. For a perfect joint, we recommend ground up weed.
Some people simply break the weed with fingers or sometimes rub it between their fingers and palm. But this is not the right way to do it. We recommend grinding the weed in a grinder to get an evenly shattered weed. The reason behind this is that the paper used in making the weed joint is very thin and burns very quickly.
If the weed is not grinded properly then the paper will burn faster than weed. At this rate, the weed will split out and all you can enjoy is baking paper. If the weed is properly grinded, then every grain of weed will burn along with the paper. With completely burnt weed you can ensure maximum pleasure.
That’s it in this step. Now put this aside and let’s began with making a filter for your joint.
#2. Make a filter
The filter plays a vital role in elevating your experience while smoking. The filter also known as the crutch provides stability to the joint. It maintains the shape of the joint. You can select a pre-made filter or make a custom filter as per your requirement.
A filter lets you smoke your joint completely without burning your fingers. It not only increases the airflow to burn joint more efficiently but also maximizes joint smoke ability.
Making a filter is easy but if you still don’t like to make filters every time then you can purchase a pre-rolled filter. The benefit of using this filter is that they are perfectly round and easy to use.
But if you still like to go conventional way then let’s began. Take the filter paper and fold it like an accordion. This should be an equal and alternate fold. Make a few folds, if you find some extra paper then roll it around the fold and wrap it. This will make a nice filter tip with great airflow. Now, it’s time to get your joint paper.
Grab your joint paper from glue side up opposite from you and place the filter at the end of the paper. The glue side is a shiny strip at the corner.
Hold the filter and joint paper between your thumb and two fingers. If you are a right-handed person then hold the filter and joint between your left hand’s thumb and fingers.
It is important to keep your filter tip flushed with a joint edge. If it is not flushed then it will cause problems while inhaling.
Note: the filter edge should line properly with joint paper.
#3. Even Distribution Of Weed in the Joint
With this, you are now ready to put your weed on a joint paper. Holding joint paper and filter in one hand use the other hand to spread the grinded weed on paper.
If you like to roll joint using inside out technique, then you can also use an ultra-thin joint paper like rice paper. This paper makes the weed to lay flat and allows the maker to roll precisely.
Spread the weed starting from filter to the other end of the paper. Remember it should start from filter end with less weed and then gradually increasing the amount of weed to the opposite end. This is done to make a cone shape while we roll. Rolling a joint is different than rolling a blunt as it has an uneven distribution of grains.
Remember sometimes the weed gets stick to fingers. Poker is also great to move weed around. You can also use a pencil to move it.
Using a long pencil will easily press weed down in the joint and thus makes it easier to tuck the paper before rolling it.
You can also roll the joint back and forth between your fingers to make weed lay flat in the joint but we prefer using a pencil. It’s totally up to you.
If the weed is not laid properly in the joint then you are going to screw yourself in tucking the paper. Tuck is the secret to a great joint.
Now, when you weed is lying flat in the joint and filter is flushed with the edge, you are ready to roll the joint.
#4. Tuck the paper
Now comes the toughest part in rolling a joint. Check this step properly and do it with full concentration otherwise you are going to get fucked up.
This is the most important and most hard step which, if not done correctly, can mess you whole joint.
With one hand holding the filter, start tucking the joint paper tightly against the filter. You can roll the joint while tucking paper underneath the filter. Move it back and forth and tightly roll the paper until you get paper tucked incorrectly.
Move it slowly while pressing your thumb against you first, or pointer finger. This motion is similar to the motion of the hand when you count a note bundle.
Make sure that paper is tuck tight against the filter. This will not only make it easy to roll and also prevents the filter from coming out while smoking.
By this time, the grinded weed is finely shaped in the joint and ready to seal.
Since the weed was distributed in a cone shape and lays flat on paper, it will get properly arranged and easy to roll. Leave only the glue strip exposed.
Now, finally, let’s get the last step done.
#5. Lick, Roll, Seal, and Smoke
A journey to roll a joint comes to end with finally sticking the exposed glue portion of the joint paper. Just lick the exposed glue strip area and stick the end tightly.
Remember to keep the joint steady and tight. Don’t lose the pressure between the thumb and pointer finger as this could lead to loosening the tuck and spoiling the joint.
Don’t slobber the strip as if the paper gets wet, it will tear out ruining your joint. You just need to moisturize the exposed glue area with your tongue. A little saliva is all you need to stick it.
Remember the paper is thin and more saliva can tear it. Just moisturize it lightly and roll the joint as you did before.
You can also remove the excess paper by tearing it or burning it to ashes. But before doing this keep in mind that tearing the excess paper is easy whereas burning it can sometimes become a disaster.
Remember, the end opposite to filter is still open. If any weed grain fell out then gently put it back in from this end. You any also put any extra weed from this end until there is a bit space left.
Finally, pinch and roll the end to make a hat.
TADA!!! Your joint is ready. Sit back and relax the puff of weed joint.
Relish the excellent joint made by you. Now you have graduated to the course of rolling a joint. The best remedy to relax and enjoy with friends.
How To Roll a Joint: Things to Remember
There are various physical factors on which the quality of the joint depends.
- Grinding: Since we already discussed that weed leaves should be grinded in a grinder rather than breaking with the finger. Ensure that the weed is properly grinded to increase the burning ratio of weed. If there is a big piece, the weed particles will not burn completely leaving un-burnt particles.
- Tight Packing: The airflow passing through the array of condensed joint determines the rate at which weed burns. If the joint is packed loosely, then, it has a tendency to burn rapidly and even material could fall out. Therefore, before rolling the joint remember to grab it tightly, tuck the paper properly underneath the filter and then roll the joint tightly.
- Inhale intensity: While smoking, if you inhale the joint heavily, it will increase airflow and joint will burn fast. Therefore, inhale the joint slowly to burn the joint at a slower rate.
Now you know the key to make a perfect joint. Invite your friends and make a joint for them. If you just used to smoke joints rolled by your friends then it is a good time to show them your talent and give them a perfect joint.
