The joint is probably the oldest method of smoking cannabis. Joints come in all shapes and sizes, but are typically made from a rolling paper that has been folded into a tubular form. They can also be called “papers” or “blunts”, although these names may also indicate other materials such as cigars or tobacco wraps.
Rolling joint is done with either a tobacco leaf or special joint paper. They are usually made from tobacco, cannabis or both. It is believed that joint rolling originated in Europe, where cannabis was banned in many countries. This lead to people using their tobacco papers as improvised joint papers!
Joints consist of two layers: the inner tube and the outer wrap. The joint is rolled so that the tobacco leaf or joint paper is wrapped around it to hold the joint together.
How to Roll a Joint Instructions
To roll a joint, you will need:
– Rolling papers
– Rolling machine
– Filter tips (optional)
– Grinder (optional)
If you don’t have a joint rolling machine, make sure to break down the cannabis to ensure that it can be evenly distributed in your joint. When using joints at parties or festivals, use filters tips to prevent spillage if you are passing your joint around. Finally, if you’re looking for an extra high (and smoother toke), try using a joint grinder.
1. First, break down your cannabis by hand or with a joint rolling machine into evenly sized pieces that will fit into the joint.
2. Next, prepare your joint paper so it is ready to roll! This involves making an accordion-style fold in the joint paper to form the tube shape of the joint.
3. Next, place the joint paper tube on a flat surface with the open end facing down and apply some saliva or water to the joint paper along the line where it folds. This will help seal in your joint when you roll it up!
4. Place one of your pre-rolled pieces of cannabis into the joint paper tube and begin to roll it up by using your thumb and forefingers. Continue rolling until you reach the top of joint paper tube, making sure that you keep a tight grip on your joint throughout the process.
5. If you are rolling with tobacco instead of joint paper, use a filter tip at this point before continuing with step 6!
6. Now, use your joint rolling machine or fingers to roll the joint paper around your joint, using small circular motions to ensure that it is rolled evenly and tightly. If you’re having trouble rolling a joint by hand, we recommend checking out our guide on how to roll a joint with a joint roller
7. Pack some more cannabis into the joint. You can use a joint grinder to grind your cannabis more finely to make this step easier.
8. After packing in some more cannabis, continue rolling your joint until it is tightly wrapped in joint paper again. If you are using tobacco instead of joint paper, apply saliva or water along the line where you made the joint paper fold.
9. This step is optional but if you’re smoking with friends, it’s a good idea to use joint tips! Apply saliva or water along the joint tip before applying it to your joint and then seal the joint together by rolling it up. If you don’t have joint tips, use a toothpick instead!
10. Light up and enjoy! Don’t forget to share with friends!
