“Puff, Puff, Pass” is a universal language. Rolling and passing joints is the social aspect of cannabis that makes it popular around the world. A joint is one of the major ways of consuming cannabis.
Rolling a perfect joint is an art very few can master. But with the proper technique and a lot of practice, one can roll a majestically perfect joint. Just make sure you have all the necessary things for rolling a joint. You can get everything on any online head shop. Here are five practical steps to roll a perfect joint.
Before you start rolling the joint, make sure you have the following things:
- Rolling paper
- Crutch or filter
- Rolling tray
- A pen, straw, or anything with a similar shape
- Grind the Green
Nobody likes stems and seeds in their weed. So it is better to separate it before you roll a joint. Use a grinder to grind the cannabis and separate the seeds and stems evenly. A grinder helps to produce even size and texture. If you don’t have a grinder, remove the stems and seed with your fingers. Your weed may not be as refined as when you use a grinder, but it will get the work done.
- Make the Crutch
Any online head shop sells crutches that work as a mouthpiece or a filter for your joint. If you don’t have that, you can take a thick paper. Fold it into an accordion shape and wrap the repairing paper around that folded part. They are also called filters or tips.
- Load it With Green
Lay the rolling paper on a table or rolling tray. Keep the adhesive side on the opposite side from you. Place the crutch on the paper and sprinkle the cannabis onto the paper. Evenly spread it on the paper inline with the crutch. Don’t worry if some of the cannabis falls back in the tray; you can add it to the joint later.
- Roll It Up
Now comes the tricky part. Carefully pick up the cannabis-filled paper. Use your index fingers and thumbs and pinch the paper to distribute the cannabis evenly.
Work the weed not so loose that it falls off or burns unevenly and not too tight to stop the airflow. Tuck the non-glue side of the paper to the adhesive side. Lick and wet the sticky side and slowly seal the joint. Now that you have closed it, get a pen or something to pack down the stuff in the joint. You can also add the leftover cannabis.
- Close The Joint
Twist the extra rolling paper at the tip of the joint and seal the joint perfectly.
This guide is quite straightforward to learn how to roll a perfect joint as a newbie. There are many other cannabis products available online such as flavored rolling papers, pre-rolled roll cones, pre-rolled crutches, and so many others. But you want to keep it old school; it is better to learn how to roll it from scratch.
