Rolling a joint is a time-honored ritual for many people who enjoy smoking cannabis. It’s a simple process that allows you to enjoy your favorite strains of cannabis in a convenient way. If you’re new to rolling joints, it can seem like a daunting task at first, but with a little practice and patience, you’ll be able to roll a perfect joint in no time!
The first step in rolling a joint is to gather your materials. You’ll need some ground cannabis, rolling papers, and a crutch (also known as a filter or tip). You can find all of these items at Mary Modern- our associates can help you find the perfect products!
Next, you’ll need to grind your cannabis. This can be done using a grinder or by hand. If you’re using a grinder, simply put your buds in the top chamber and twist it back and forth until the cannabis is evenly ground. If you’re doing it by hand, you’ll need to use a pair of scissors to chop your buds into small pieces.
Once your flower is ground, it’s time to start rolling. Take a rolling paper and place it on a flat surface with the gummed side facing up. Place a small amount of ground cannabis in the center of the paper. It’s important not to overfill the joint, as this will make it difficult to roll and smoke.
The next step is to take the crutch and place it at one end of where the cannabis is laid. If you’re using a pre-made crutch, simply slide it into place. If you’re making your own crutch, you can use a piece of cardboard or paper rolled into a cylinder shape. This step is optional, but will serve as a filter and protect your lips from getting too hot.
Now it’s time to roll the joint. Take the side of the rolling paper with the cannabis and fold it over the crutch. Use your fingers to shape the cannabis into a cylindrical shape as you roll. Once you have the joint rolled to your desired thickness, wet the gummed edge of the paper and press it down to seal the joint.
Then light your joint and enjoy. You can use a lighter or a hemp wick to ignite the end of the joint. Take slow, steady puffs and try to inhale the smoke into your lungs rather than just in your mouth. As you smoke, you may notice the end of the joint burning faster than the rest of the joint. This is normal and just means that you need to rotate the joint as you smoke to ensure an even burn.
