The cannabis industry in the US is worth millions of dollars.
It’s hard to go a single day without hearing about someone smoking cannabis, making ‘special’ brownies, or taking a hit of their dab pen. You may have even seen your own friends roll a joint.
But have you ever wanted to learn to roll your own joint? Learning how to roll a joint is like riding a bike. Once you learn, you’ll never forget.
Check out our guide to joint rolling below. You’ll be an expert in no time.
Grab Your Materials
Some people have incredible joint rolling machine industrial technology. However, most people stick to grabbing their own materials and rolling a joint the old-fashioned way.
Start the process by grabbing your cannabis, rolling papers, a grinder, something to pack the joint, and a lighter. If you want to keep it clean, invest in a rolling tray.
Grind and Fill
When you start grinding your weed, keep the consistency of finely-ground oregano in your head. Aim for a kitchen spice consistency.
Every smoker knows a good grinder is a necessity, but you can also use scissors if you’re in a stoner emergency. Grinders allow for a much more even burn.
Once you’ve ground your flower, it’s time to fill up the joint. The best joint is typically a 1/2 of a gram to each 1 1/4 size rolling paper. (This is the most common size of rolling paper.)
Time to Roll
You’re close to smoking your perfect joint. It’s time to roll!
Make sure the sticky side of the paper is facing you. Pinch the paper between your index fingers and thumbs. Start to carefully roll the paper back and forth to push your cannabis into a cone shape.
Slowly and firmly tuck the non-sticky side under the weed. Roll it towards the adhesive side, much like you roll up a yoga mat.
To seal the joint, use your tongue to wet the sticky end of the joint. Once it’s sealed on one end, use a small stick or pen to pack in the weed from the other end.
Twist the excess paper. Some people then use a lighter to create a tighter seal on the joint.
