If the joint is not rolled correctly it impacts the flavor of your joints. For few rolling a weed joint is no less than a rocket science and they really can’t roll a weed joint even after trying several times. Well, let me tell you that it’s not that tough to do. If you think you also need to improve your rolling weed joint technique then here is a step by step guide for your reference.
First thing first, here is a list of all the necessary items for your rolling stash box:
- Weed (Metal) Grinder
- Rolling Papers
Step-by-step procedure to roll a weed joint:
1. Use the Best Rolling Paper
Rolling paper comes in three types such as paper made of wood pulp, paper made of rice and paper made of hemp. Each one is unique in its own way and also affect how your joint smokes. For beginners it is recommended to use paper made of hemp as it is easy to roll. However, expert rollers go for rice papers as they are flavorless and burn slow.
2. Select the Right Size Rolling Paper
The size of the rolling paper will depend on how many people are there to smoke you with? How high are their tolerances? And, how many joints do you intend to roll?
However, the standard and the most popular sizes are 1 ¼” size and King Slims.
1 ¼” is considered good for 1-3 people with moderate to low tolerances. Whereas, King Slims are considered best for moderate-tolerance groups of 2-5 people or high-tolerance groups of 1-3 people. So, accordingly depending on the number of people and their tolerances you can select the size of the rolling paper.
3. Grind Your Weed
Since you have a grinder, now the first thing which you need to do before rolling your joint is to grind your weed evenly. Because, if your weed is not properly grounded then the whole lot of exercise of rolling a joint will be a waste. Most preferred weed grinder is metal one.
4. Use a Crutch
Use a crutch for rolling your joints. A crutch also called a filter or tip, is essentially a mouthpiece made of glass or wood pulp used for holding or passing the joints to others.
5. Arrange in a Shape
More often than not, pinners, straight, cigarette-shaped joints are rolled for smaller groups and are very efficient, whereas for a powerful hit and maximizing the size of the rolling paper, cones, fluted joints that flare at the end are rolled.
6. Roll Patiently
Last but not the least, roll your joint patiently. Arrange your cannabis neatly within the paper and roll the joint. But, before that arrange the bud and roll the paper back and forth between your fingers. Then, set the whole thing down on the table and check how your roll behaves. If the roll is not taking up the cylindrical shape, getting a tight tuck will be tough. So, create paper tension using the tip, create enough tension in the paper to smooth it out, but don’t pull it hard that you tear it. Rearrange things, seal your joint with minimum paper otherwise you will get more taste of paper than your joint.
Now, your joint is ready to lit, make sure you light it correctly. Also, do not inhale while you ignite your weed joint. Step it up and make sure you smoke less paper.
