- Shape the joint filter, by folding it back and forth until it forms a shape that resembles the letter M. Once you see it, wrap the paper around the M once or twice, and then Cut the remaining portion off. Pre-roll cone papers will generally come equipped with one already installed, but regular papers will not.
- Use a weed grinder to bust apart the cannabis buds, and remove any stems and seeds from the mixture that may puncture the paper, or explode when lit.
- Fill the rolling paper with bud grind and place the filter appropriately.
- Pack the bud grind down, by rolling the paper between your thumbs and forefingers, but slowly readjust the paper on an angle as you go. If you have a pre-shaped cone, then you only must fill it with weed grind and pack it down using a packing stick.
- For those using standard papers, once the opening is wider than the base, a lot of it will be empty, but this can be filled later. Lick and stick the paper and press it into place.
- Fill the hollow tip with as much cannabis as you can, by gently packing it into the tube.
- Once complete, you can fold at the end of the paper, to keep all the buds from falling out in transit.
To burn a cone joint, all that you need are some matches or a lighter. Spark the tip, take a drag off the filtered end, and inhale. It’s that easy.
Moon rocks are all the rage right now, and you can recreate this effect yourself using cannabis oil, and kief. Evenly spread some liquid concentrate onto the outside of the joint, and then roll it in a sprinkling of freshly harvested kief. Kief can also be added alongside just dry cannabis to increase the strength without dealing with any of the mess.
CBO, wax, and hash all make excellent additions to any cannabis roll. They will improve the potency and offer a variation of terpenes that you won’t get from smoking one strain alone. These can be added to the inside of a joint along with dry herb or applied to the outside of the rolling paper.

Recall how we left a little crutch hanging out the back of the rolling paper. Now that you’re fully rolled, you can push the crutch in towards the rolled bud, effectively tightening the connection between the crutch and the cannabis. After pushing the crutch in to seal the gap, you can give it a quick lick to adhere to the rolling paper to the crutch. This reduces the likelihood of the crutch slipping out of the joint.
There are a few final touches that will help put the finishing touches on your hard work. Now that you have a rolled joint, its time to pack it and twist it off. The concept behind packing your joint is similar to packing a cigarette – the goal being a slower, even-burning smoke. Packing joints also reduce the likelihood of the cherry falling out of the lit joint as the result of a loose roll. There are a variety of methods used to pack joints, we will outline the most common. Note: it is possible to pack a joint too tight! When this happens, it’s nearly impossible to get a proper draw due to lack of airflow.
Truly slow burning, perfect joints are rolled inside out! Learn how to roll a perfect joint with the paper inside out. Many people find that all the same techniques apply, and it soon feels easier than rolling the regular way. Did you know that the type of rolling papers you use will affect how your joint rolls, smokes, and tastes? As a rule of thumb; the thinner the paper, the slower the burn. If you have never tried an ultra-thin rice paper, now is the time.
If you are attempting to roll a pinner, the ground bud should be set in the paper as shown in the top of the photo. Alternatively, if you prefer cone joints, arrange in a manner consistent with the lower image.
A joint rolling kit is ideal for managing your smoking essentials because you need a few different items!
If you have successfully tucked the first portion of the papers but are struggling to complete the tuck (because the paper is crinkling), try using one hand to pull the end of the paper as shown above. This will help eliminate crinkles in the paper, resulting in a tighter, more even roll. Once the entire flap is tucked, keep rolling. At this point, the joint should be mostly rolled and it’s time to lick glue strip and stick it down. Some find it easier to lick the glue on the first half of the paper (closest to the crutch) and stick it down prior to licking and sticking the second half.
Whether you prefer a straight, cigarette-style joint or the classic cone, we all strive to roll the perfectly shaped joint. Not only do pearled joints look good, but they also smoke more evenly than their elbowed counterparts. This step-by-step visual guide will show you how to roll a cone joint (or pinner), making it easy to roll a photo-worthy joint.
Pro Tip: You can lick through the paper and still activate the glue strip to seal the second half of the joint.
Time to actually roll the bud. This step can be the most challenging, as it requires a gentle touch that only comes with practice. The goal is to move the paper back and forth between your fingers, shaping the bud into either a straight cylinder (pinner joint) or a cone joint.
