Getting high or stoned is nice, but have you ever gotten too high or too stoned ? We got some very useful tips and tricks for whenever this happens. There comes a time in every smoker’s life that they get caught with nothing to smoke with and nothing to roll with. When this happens, you can either go full on engineer and try to make a homemade bong or find something creative to roll a joint with.
But a word from the wise, don’t use anything other than real joint papers to roll up. True, you can use a gum wrapper with the aluminum peeled off or corn husk or even printer paper. Be patient, make a gas station run and enjoy cannabis the way it was meant to be enjoyed. If you came here to simply learn how to roll a joint, this section is all you’re going to need. This will break down step by step how to roll a joint. No tricks or fancy equipment, just the tried and true, old school way. You can either watch this video or, if you prefer, you can read how to roll a joint step by step. As mentioned earlier, you can use a grinder or a rough finger grind to prepare your cannabis.
You can also use scissors or any other homemade grinders. I recommend you play around with different methods to see which you like the best because they do not all smoke the same. Now, take your paper and fill it with the shake you got from grinding your cannabis. If you’re using a filter, place it at one end of the joint. Usually, a good amount of cannabis for a joint is around a half gram (you can weigh it out with a scale if you want). With one hand holding the paper, use your free hand to shape the joint by moving the cannabis around to where it’s evenly distributed across the paper. A lot of beginners tend to roll joints with fat bellies. Step 3: Pack the Joint and Distributed the Cannabis. So you’ve got the joint loaded and shaped, now is the time to roll it up. Do so by pinching the paper between your fingertips and slowly roll it back and forth to pack the cannabis down. Once you see it taking the shape of a joint, it’s time to go to the next step. Now is the time that the great joint rollers separate themselves from the beginners. Start by tucking the unglued side of your paper into the roll. Lick the glued edge of the paper and roll one end down to hold it into place. If you’re using a filter, roll this end into place first . It makes it easier and helps guide the paper as it rolls around itself. Slowly, work your way down the rest of the joint, tucking and sealing the joint as you go. Now that you have a rolled joint, you should pack it to ensure an even burn. You can pack it by either using something like a pen to pack the cannabis down through the top of the joint, or you can pinch the top of the joint and lightly flick the joint back and forth till it packs down. The idea behind them is they allow you to smoke more of your bud instead of being left with an unsmokeable roach. You also can smoke a joint a little bit better because it helps fight the resin clogging that usually happens at towards the end of the joint. To make one, it’s best to use a thin cardboard like a business card. Some papers even come with crutches built in, or you can just use an empty paper box. RAW also makes some packs of just filter papers that, of course, work perfectly. Just make a couple of accordion folds on one end of the cardboard (basically, fold the end into a W) and then roll it up thick enough to match the width of the joint you plan on rolling. Again, it’s not required to use a filter for your joints, but they do prevent scooby snacks (swallowing cannabis), make the joint more stable and make it easier to smoke. Now, rolling a two paper joint is exactly like rolling a single paper joint.
The only thing you need to learn is how to attach the two joint papers. There are two different ways you can go about doing it. The first way is the preferred method that is easier to roll, and that’s to take the second paper and attach it by shaping the two papers into an L shape. The other way to roll a two paper joint is by attaching the papers slightly overlapping each other. While this one sounds cooler since it will be a bigger joint, it tends to be pretty unstable and clog up from massive resin build up.
Using a joint roller is one of the easiest ways for beginners to learn how to roll joints. The concept is pretty much the same as rolling one free hand, except the machine does the work of holding the paper in the right place for you. Take the joint roller and make sure it’s not locked into its tightest position, push the apron down and fill the chamber with your bud. Make sure that the bud is evenly distributed in the joint roller machine . If you’re using a filter, you can place it on either end of the joint roller.
