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.
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.

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.
So you’ve got the joint loaded and shaped, now is the time to roll it up. Do so by pinching the paper between your fingertips and slowly roll it back and forth to pack the cannabis down.
Once you see it taking the shape of a joint, it’s time to go to the next step.
Everything up to this point has been easy. Now is the time that the great joint rollers separate themselves from the beginners. Start by tucking the unglued side of your paper into the roll.
Lick the glued edge of the paper and roll one end down to hold it into place. If you’re using a filter, roll this end into place first. It makes it easier and helps guide the paper as it rolls around itself.
Slowly, work your way down the rest of the joint, tucking and sealing the joint as you go.
Using a joint roller is one of the easiest ways for beginners to learn how to roll joints.
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.

First, you will want to break up your dried cannabis flower. This can be done with your fingers, with scissors, or with a grinder. Using a grinder more evenly breaks up your marijuana, which will help your joint burn more evenly and consistently. For many cannabis consumers who smoke joints, grinders are considered a straightforward yet crucial tool.
What is a crutch? Also known as a filter, a crutch is essentially a mouthpiece for your joint.
Many rolling papers feature a sticky substance on one edge that when moistened helps provide a seal. After you’ve rolled your joint, you’ll want to lick the adhesive strip and seal your joint by pressing the glue side onto the joint. Starting with the crutch or mouthpiece end, begin sealing the joint with even pressure.
Once you have your crutch and ground marijuana in place, with your thumbs and index fingers pinching the rolling paper, roll the joint up and down to evenly compact the marijuana into a rolled shape. Don’t worry if some falls out as you roll your joint. It can be added back in or saved for later.
- Break up your marijuana flower with a grinder or by using your fingers.
- Make a crutch (filter or tip) for your joint from a piece of thin card stock paper.
- Place your freshly ground marijuana flower in the joint paper.
- Roll your joint with your fingers.
- Lick and seal your joint closed.
- Light the tip of your joint, turning it over in the flame.
Be sure not to overfill it since adding too much can make your joint difficult to close. If you find yourself with excess paper, you can trim it off the side without adhesive before rolling your joint to ensure you aren’t smoking extra paper.
