Rolling Better Joints

Tips For Rolling Better Joints

When it comes to joint rolling, “practice makes perfect” can be a fun
 process. Grab some paper and improve your rolling technique.
Here are our tips for rolling better joints.


Stay Organized By Having A Tray

One of the best ways to have better joints is to have everything organized. If your flower is spread around or you are leaving your leftovers on your dinner table, you might want to consider getting a tray like Matriarch’s Jay Mill.
Not only it has a classy, timeless design with its 100% Black Walnut wood, but it is also great to keep your paper, flower, and other accessories around.
It has several compartments, so everything stays at your reach while rolling. Even if some ground goodies slip it out, its tray will keep them so you can have some leftover joints later.
These compartments also help keep your paper flat and not squished in a drawer, and you can even keep glass or acrylic jars for your flower or wax within reach.
Having a dedicated tray to roll can help you improve your joints by having everything ready and organized.
Sometimes rolling on a table or your lap in a pinch might be the reason they open and get everywhere, so think about the organization as a critical factor when rolling.

Choose The Right Papers

The paper you choose might be the most critical decision you ever make.
There are many different rolling papers available on the market, made from other materials. Higher quality or eco papers will have fewer contaminants.
You can also buy papers with flavor added if you like some extra taste, but those may have artificial dyes, bleaches, or other toxins (if you are worried about health risks or the environment).
Choose a rolling paper that does not add a bad taste to the joint, as some papers leave an aftertaste that not everyone likes.
Papers that are thin and burn evenly and slowly are best. Some people prefer hemp rolling papers because they do not burn between puffs.
For a superior rolling paper try FLY or GREENGO original papers.


Grind It Good

Although it’s not necessary to have a grinder, it’s helpful to have one. They save time in the rolling process and provide a please to store your weed if you’re transporting it.
It also makes it easier to grind the herb evenly. Fine grinding ensures that you won’t use as much marijuana, saving you money.
Plus, you can get a grinder to show off your personality.
Do not rush the grinding. Take your time breaking down the weed, so you can be sure it rolls more evenly.
Remove all stems and make sure the buds are broken into smaller pieces. This protects your paper from tearing.

The Roach

A roach (sometimes called a crutch or a tip) is a piece of tightly rolled cardboard placed at the end of the joint when rolling to prevent it from closing.
A joint with a closed end is harder and more frustrating to smoke, so a roach keeps the smoking process pleasant. The roach also helps direct the flow of smoke and prevents weed from falling into your mouth (unless you are into that sort of thing). LOL
Even better, it prevents your lips and fingers from getting burned.

Master Your Method

We are not judging, but your rolling expertise can have a massive effect on how good your smoking experience is.
Roll it too tight, and there will not be enough airflow. Roll it too loose, and the joint will taste bad.
Aim for just right. Easy, no?
If you’ve never rolled a joint before or want to be sure you’re using the optimal method, peruse the guide on how to roll a joint.


How to Roll a Joint By Hand

Hand-rolling is what people start out with, but it is the hardest method of rolling. There are plenty of tips and tricks to it using a filter properly, rolling in a cone shape instead of a cylindrical one, making the perfectly twisted tip to avoid canoeing but when it comes down to rolling you just want to get the basics down before branching out into making ridiculous joints.
The trick is finding the right size paper single wide, the smallest size can be a little tough to get the hang of, but so too can the large king size papers. It’s best to start out with papers that are around 1 ¼, giving you enough space to maneuver but not so much paper that it gets in the way.
Fold your rolling paper in half and grind up a bunch of stem-free weed to put in the center.  Roll the ends of the paper against one another to pack the weed, then slip in the properly sized filter of your choice (an accordion fold or simple roll are the easiest, but there are plenty of crutch choices available).
For a straight roll be sure to keep the edges of the paper even as you roll the front edge into the back of the sheet and down behind your weed. Lick the glue strip and close the paper up. For a conical roll, start rolling the paper at the filter side of the joint, making sure that the open end’s paper is held slightly higher as it’s rolled into the back side of the sheet. Lick it closed; you might need to put some more weed into the end and then shake it to pack like you would with the pre-rolled cone.
With these three techniques under your belt, you will be the center of attention at the next smoke session.


How to Pack Pre-rolled Cones

With the proliferation of ready made cones, pre-rolls have become the most convenient method of making a joint by far. All you need to do is grind up some bud (stem free!) and stuff it in the paper. You can mix in kief or a bit of hash, just make sure, that it’s incorporated into the flower and not in its own layer or the joint will have trouble staying lit evenly.
Be sure to pack the bud down into the cone when you roll. You can do this in two ways, either push it into the paper with something like the back of a pen or just hold the open end of the joint and flick the joint loosely against your palm a couple of times to get the weed to settle down. The latter method tends to be better, not just because it eliminates the likelihood of accidentally poking through the paper, but also because it is harder to over-pack a joint this way (which can also make it hard to keep the joint lit).

One Last Quality Check

When rolling, avoid placing all your ground herb in the center of the paper, too much weed here can cause it to roll unevenly.
Instead, spread it out to both sides, with less in the middle. As you roll, it’ll even out.
While you roll the joint, give the last feel for seeds, stems, or uneven pieces and remove any that you find.
It takes a few extra moments at this stage, but it makes for a better smoking experience overall.
