This is how to roll a joint

Never rolled a joint before or are you wondering how to roll your joints in a better way? Rolling a joint (and not just as a beginner) is certainly intimidating, but with the right knowledge and skills anyone can become a pro! Weed has been used for thousands of years[1], and for good reason. We’ll explain how to spin the perfect joint in a handy step-by-step guide.

Basic supplies and steps for rolling a joint

Before you start rolling a joint, there are a few essential supplies you’ll need: rolling paper, a filter or tip, weed or hash and tobacco (optional), you can also use herbs. The first step is to finely grind your weed or hash. Make sure it is crushed evenly for better smoking. A grinder can be useful for this.

After that, place your rolling paper in the proper shape, this can be a straight joint or a cone-shaped joint. Place the tip or filter on the left or right side. The filter or tip is the most important thing. Whereas you often do not use a filter when rolling a shag cigarette, it is recommended for a joint. This will prevent pieces of weed from ending up in your mouth while smoking. It also keeps the joint firmer and makes it easier to roll the joint.

How do you know whether you are left-handed or right-handed when rolling a joint?

It is sometimes said that left-handed people roll their joint with the tip or filter on the left and right-handed people roll a joint with the filter on the right… but this doesn’t have to be the case, it all depends on what you like best. There are people who have been rolling their joint for years with the filter or tip on the right, and try it once to put the tip on the left, and find that much nicer. This is a matter of trial and error; you will find out for yourself what you like best.

With your tip to the left or right, spread the weed evenly along the length of the blotting paper. Make sure you don’t use too much or the joint will be harder to roll. Also make sure you distribute your ground weed evenly throughout the joint. This will ensure an even burn and a better smoking experience.

The real thing, rolling the joint

This is where the real work begins, and this is where we can give you tips, but this is mostly about practice, practice and practice again[2] “Practice makes perfect” as with all skills. In rolling a perfect joint it is no different. The more often you do it, the better you get. So keep practicing and you will soon become a pro.

Start at the filter and roll the tissue paper tightly around the weed. Make sure you roll firmly, but not too firmly or too tightly. And especially for beginners, this tip is one of the most important. A joint that is too loose can quickly fall apart. By the way, it should be done very subtly, because a joint that is too tight is hard to light! Ready for the next step? That’s turning a joint inside out[3]!
