How to Roll A Joint: Things to Roll it With
There are times that a smoker is caught up with nothing to smoking. And there is nothing that can be rolled with it. If this ever happens to you, try making a homemade bong. Look for something that you can creatively roll your joint with. In the first place, a joint is a healthier option than a bong.
But then, never use anything than just a real joint paper. You may use a gum wrapper with a peeled corn husk, printer paper, and aluminum. Better to make use of a gas station. Enjoy the cannabis as you want it.
Grinding the Cannabis
Prepare everything as mentioned. This is before you ultimately do the rolling. You must make use of a rough finger or a grinder. This will be useful in preparing for cannabis. Make use of a homemade grinder or a scissor. Experiment on different methods. This way, you will see what is best.
Fill the Joint Using Cannabis
Take the paper. Fill it with a shake outsourced from ground cannabis. Use a filter and place it at the end of the joint. Prepare for half a gram of cannabis for a joint. Weigh it out using a scale.
Your one hand should hold the paper. Use your free hand in shaping up the joint. Move the cannabis around as it is evenly distributed to the paper. Shape up the joint as this is the right thing to do.
Pack the Distributed Cannabis and the Joint
You may have loaded and shaped the joint already. It finally is the time to roll it up. Pinch the paper between the fingertips. Roll it back slowly. Do it back and forth so that the cannabis is packed down. When it takes the shape of a joint, follow the next step.
Roll the Joint
At this point, everything seems so easy. The joint roller already separates itself from the beginners. Tuck the unglued side of the paper into a roll. Lick the glued part of the paper. Roll one on an end down. This is to securely hold it in place. Roll the end first if you will use a filter. It is done easier and it helps guide the paper while it rolls itself. Work your way through the joint. Tuck and seal the joint.
Finishing the Touches

A filter is also called as the tip or the crutch. This allows you of smoking more than just the bud. This is then being left with the unsmokable roach. Smoke a joint a bit better. This helps clog the resin that happens at the end of the joint. Make use of thin size cardboard the same as the business card. Other papers also come with built-in crutches. Better yet, make use of an empty box.
Prepare an accordion folding on another end of the cardboard. Roll it up just thick enough matching the width of the joint. Never make use of a filter for the joints. It does only avoid Scooby snacks. Better yet, prepare for the joint. Make it more stable and easier when smoked.

The first one is a lot easier when rolled. Just take the second paper. Attach it as you shape the 2 papers into such an L shape. The second one is rolling a 2 paper joint. The papers will be attached slightly as they overlap each other. This sounds cooler having a bigger joint. It is unstable and it clogs up from a huge resin build-up.
Rolling a Joint with a Roller
It is easy to be rolling a joint with a roller. This is the same as you roll using your free hand. This exempts the machine that holds the paper for you. Grind up the bud with a few twists. Get the joint roller. It should not be locked to its tight position. Push down the apron. Fill the chamber using a bud. Distribute the bud evenly through the joint roller machine. Place a filter onto the other end of the joint roller. Close the roller. Push more of the bud into the right place. Do not put more cannabis through the roller. Cram it there forcefully. It’s when the joint is too tight when you smoke it. Give your roller rolls without using the paper. This is also to get the cannabis bud settled.
Grab some paper. Make sure that the adhesive faces you. Put the joint paper through the roller’s opening. Roll it down when it is set in place. Roll it down. Lightly roll it up. The rolling machine can roll the joint too tight. It might ruin the experience you ever wanted. Then, roll it until then the adhesive sticks out on top. Lick the glue before you give the roll a finishing roll.
