Ways to roll a joint

Now, rolling a two paper joint is exactly like rolling a single paper joint. The only thing you need to learn is how to attach the two joint papers. There are two different ways you can go about doing it.
The first way is the preferred method that is easier to roll, and that’s to take the second paper and attach it by shaping the two papers into an L shape.
You can see how it’s done in the video below.

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.
Before you learn who to roll, you need to think about how you need to get your cannabis ready to be rolled. What do you need? Just a paper and some weed! (How cool is that?)

There isn’t much that goes into the preparation of a joint, but I wanted to talk a little bit about how to prepare the cannabis for one.
Some smokers like to use grinders, and you really can’t go wrong with that. If you grind up your bud to finely for a joint, however, it can lead to a joint that ends up being hard to hit and gets bogged down with resin. When rolling up a joint, it’s always best to go with a somewhat rougher grind.
Aside from that, make sure you have some good joint papers and maybe a rolling tray.
Getting high or stoned is nice, but have you ever gotten too high or too stoned? We got some very useful tips and tricks for whenever this happens. Read it here.

Using a joint roller is one of the easiest ways for beginners to learn how to roll joints.
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.
Rolling a joint with hash isn’t any different than rolling a normal joint. You can use any of the joint rolling techniques mentioned above to do it. The whole idea behind it is just putting hash in your joint. There are right and wrong ways to put hash in your joints, though.

If your hash is very dry, like compacted kief hash is, use a knife to scrape off some of it into the cannabis you have prepped for your joint. If the hash has a more play-dough consistency, then take a little bit of it and roll the hash until it’s a long and very skinny line of hash.
It needs to be roughly the same size of the joint. Place the hash on top of the weed and roll it up.
There comes a time in every smoker’s life that they get caught with nothing to smoke with and nothing to roll with. When this happens, you can either go full on engineer and try to make a homemade bong or find something creative to roll a joint with.
After all, joints are healthier than bongs.
But a word from the wise, don’t use anything other than real joint papers to roll up. True, you can use a gum wrapper with the aluminum peeled off or corn husk or even printer paper. But don’t. They suck. Be patient, make a gas station run and enjoy cannabis the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

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.

The concept is pretty much the same as rolling one free hand, except the machine does the work of holding the paper in the right place for you.
First, grind up your bud with a couple of twists. Take the joint roller and make sure it’s not locked into its tightest position, push the apron down and fill the chamber with your bud. Make sure that the bud is evenly distributed in the joint roller machine. If you’re using a filter, you can place it on either end of the joint roller.
Now, you need to close the joint roller. You may have to push the bud into place with your finger to close it. Word of caution, though. Don’t put too much cannabis in the roller. If you have to cram the stuff in there forcefully, the joint will be too tight to smoke. Give the roller a couple of rolls without the paper to get the bud settled into place.
Next, grab a paper, making sure the adhesive is facing you, place the joint paper in the opening of the roller. Once in place, roll down. It’s important to roll down, or the adhesive will be on the wrong side. The key here is to just lightly roll it up. Rolling machines can easily roll joints way too tight, ruining the entire experience.
Roll it until just the adhesive is sticking out of the top and lick the glue before giving the roller a final roll finishing the joint.

Learning how to roll a joint is an essential stoner skill. Think about it. Glass breaks, is expensive and is hard to travel with.

Inside-out joints, also known as dutch joints, are very similar in size and shape to regular cone joints. However, there is one small difference in the way the joint is rolled.

Stick a cigarette filter (or something of similar shape and weight) into the top of the joint and tap the filter against a hard surface a few times in order to pack your joint better.
L joints get their name from the shape they are in before you roll them up. This is achieved by taping two pieces of paper together.

Most people prefer smoking joints with a crutch, otherwise known as a joint filter. They are usually made of thin cardboard sheets or thicker paper.
After you’ve connected these two parts, twist the edges of the tulip part around the joint, and use the tiny rolling-paper rope you made to secure the tulip to the joint.
Joints, J’s, doobies, spliffs, Dutch cigs, reefers, whatever you call them — they’ve been around for quite some time.
Once you’ve got that handled, make a small rope from one or two papers by rubbing them together between your hands.
Once you roll it up all the way to the top, give it a minute to dry and stick, and feel free to rip off the excess paper.

Pinners are quite easy to roll, but you have know the basics of rolling a standard joint to make a pinner.
