Joints

 

STEP 1: GRIND THE CANNABIS

  • Grind up the desired amount of bud you would like to roll with. A grinder keeps your hand from getting sticky and thus sticking to the joint paper.

STEP 2: CREATE JOINT CRUTCH/FILTER

  • Make a crutch, also called a tip or filter. You can make a crutch out of just about anything, but thin cardboard or business cards are solid go-tos. A lot of joint papers also include crutch material with their packaging. Start with a few “accordion” folds at the end of the cardboard, then roll the material to the desired thickness of your joint. The crutch isn’t absolutely necessary, but it does help keep the bud from falling out of the end or into your mouth as you smoke. It also adds some stability to the joint and allows you to enjoy every bit of cannabis without burning your fingertips.

STEP 3: FILL JOINT WITH CANNABIS

  • Fill the paper with the bud and the crutch (if you’ve made one). Once the paper has the right amount of bud (a half gram to a gram usually does the trick), you can begin to form and shape the joint with your fingers. 

STEP 4: PACK THE JOINT

  • Once you’ve loaded and shaped your joint, it’s time to roll it. Pinch the paper between your fingertips and roll it back and forth between them to pack the cannabis down into its final shape.

STEP 5: ROLL THE JOINT

  • This step can make or break the quality of your joint. Tuck the unglued side of the paper into the roll and use the glued edge to tack down one end of the paper, using just a little bit of moisture. (Pro tip: Start with the crutch side because it can help guide the paper as it rolls around itself.) Once the paper is tacked on one end, you can work your way down the rest of the seam by tucking and sealing the joint from end to end.

STEP 6: FINISH YOUR JOINT

  • Finally, pack the end of the joint to help ensure an even burn. A pen is great, but you can use just about anything. Some good options if you’re on the go: the tip of your shoelace, the drawstring on your hoodie, or a small stick. If you’re not planning on sparking your joint right away, you may want to close the tip with a twist.

Blunts

 

Step 1: Grind Your Cannabis

  • Grind up the desired amount of bud you would like to roll with. A grinder keeps your hand from getting sticky and thus sticking to the joint paper.

Step 2: Prep the Blunt Wrap

  • To roll your blunt you’ll need a tobacco wrap. Traditionally, connoisseurs will empty a cigarillo (like Swisher Sweets, Phillies, or Backwoods). Use a blade to cut the blunt lengthwise, or if you’ve got the right touch you can “crack” the blunt using your fingers. Once you’ve split the blunt, empty the tobacco from the middle and discard

Step 3: Wet the Wrap

  • Using just a little bit of moisture will make your blunt wrap easier to work with, shape, and help seal up any small tears that might occur while you’re emptying its tobacco innards. This is easily done with some saliva, but if you’re rolling this blunt for someone else, you might consider using the tip of your finger and some tap water

Step 4: Fill It Up

  • Fill the empty tobacco wrapping with ground cannabis. For a standard size cigarillo one to two grams is plenty, though if you’re sharing your blunt, are an experienced roller, or are using a blunt wrap, you should be able to fit a fair amount more.

Step 5: Roll the Blunt Wrap

  • Roll the cannabis between your fingers to pack the blunt evenly. Be careful: if you didn’t moisten the wrap enough, it may crack. Once you’ve packed and shaped your blunt, tuck the wrap under itself and wet the inside of the exposed edge from end to end. Use your fingers to smooth out any wrinkles. (Tip: if you poke a hole or if the blunt cracks at all while you’re working with it, you can use the gummy adhesive from rolling papers to repair it.)

Step 6: Bake the Blunt

  • Now that your blunt is rolled, you’ll want to “bake” or dry it to help seal it together and encourage an even burn. Bake your blunt by running a lighter lengthwise under the seam and around the outside. Be careful not to hold the lighter too close — you only want the heat, not the flame.
