how to roll an l
Arrange the ground buds in the trough of the paper as you would with any other joint. It’s important to note that because you are using a longer paper, the shape of the joint will be more pronounced; meaning a tapered cone will appear more conical and only the truest pinner will look like a straight joint.
Then lick the lower portion of the glue strip of the second paper and attach the two together. You should now have a single rolling paper that looks like an L.
Once the joint has been formed, lick and seal the rolling paper. This will require licking two separate glue strips. Both parts of the paper will be sealed normally, the rotated portion of the paper will simply spiral around the tip of the joint until fully sealed.
An L is a really long joint that gets its name from the paper orientation prior to rolling. Knowing how to roll an L is especially useful when smoking in large groups or with those who have high tolerances. The beauty of an L is that you can instantly increase the size of your joint simply by adding an additional rolling paper leaf. This means that you can turn two regular size papers into a king size joint in a pinch!
Still struggling? Not to worry, we also offer personalized one-on-one joint rolling sessions – you’ll be rolling picture perfect joints in no time.
If you are looking to smoke less paper, you can cut off the far corner of the rotated paper as indicated in the photo above. Note that, in our experience, it helps to let the glue dry out a bit before moving to the next step, otherwise it is easy to rip apart the papers.
This technique can be used with any size rolling paper to increase the volume of your joint.

Everyone loves a classic cannabis joint, but did you know you can also roll a jay with organic hemp flower? Hemp is naturally high in CBD and can provide fast-acting, full-spectrum symptom relief when smoked.

From my experience, if you just tear off pieces of hash and throw them in the joint it smokes unevenly and causes the joint to run once you get to a chunk of hash. These methods distribute the hash evenly creating a better smoke.
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. Don’t do this. Take the time to shape the joint properly.
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.
After all, joints are healthier than bongs.
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. But don’t. They suck. Be patient, make a gas station run and enjoy cannabis the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
Usually, when I’m asked to teach a beginner how to roll a joint, using a dollar bill is the first method I go to. It’s like joint rolling with training wheels, and it helps you perfect the motions.
Here’s how to do it:
First, you need a paper, some weed and a dollar bill. Fold the dollar in half and place some ground up bud in the middle of the dollar. Spread the cannabis out evenly.
Fold the dollar bill back in half keeping the cannabis at the crease in the bill. Using your thumbs, work the bud towards the bottom of the crease by slowly rolling the dollar back and forth.
Roll the dollar bill down to where the end of the dollar is just covering the weed. Holding the dollar in place with one hand, place the joint paper in the opening with the adhesive facing you (just like a joint roller) and lick the adhesive.
Then, roll the dollar bill slowly back up. Make sure not to roll it too tight, or the joint will not be smokeable. Roll the dollar up until you can’t anymore, and the doobie will be done.
Before you can roll, you need to prep everything.
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.
Filters are also called crutches or tips. 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.
They’re pretty easy to make. 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.
Using a joint roller is one of the easiest ways for beginners to learn how to roll joints.
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.
No. You’re not going to be smoking a dollar bill! Instead, you’re using the dollar bill as a makeshift joint roller to roll perfect joints quickly and effortlessly every time.
Learning how to roll a joint is an essential stoner skill. Think about it. Glass breaks, is expensive and is hard to travel with.
