Roll, Roll, Roll Your Joint

Joints are arguably the most iconic way to consume cannabis. Small and portable, you can take them anywhere and spark up where you please. And they’re the best way to get even closer to your friends, there is nothing like a little puff, puff pass! To help you and your friends create an undeniable bond this summer, we’re going to teach you how to roll a joint!

Step 1: Prepare Cannabis

Break down your buds into shake. If your weed is dried well, it should break down easily. A grinder keeps your hand from getting sticky and thus sticking to the joint paper. If you don’t have a grinder, you can break the flower down by hand, using scissors, or any number of other methods. For great quality and an awesome high, pick up some Sugar Tree cannabis from your local Chalice dispensary! Specializing in sun-grown flower from the Rogue River Valley, Sugar Tree embraces their landscape, allowing the natural elements to come together to create premier cannabis. 

Step 2: Crutch

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 card-board, then roll the material to the desired thickness of your joint. The crutch isn’t absolutely necessary, but it does help keep the shake 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 bud without burning your fingertips. 

Step 3: Pack the Joint

Fill the paper with the shake and the crutch (if you’ve made one).Once the paper has the right amount of shake (a half gram to a gram usually does the trick), you can begin to form and shape the joint with your fingers. There are a lot of different types and flavors of joint papers available. Many people prefer hemp papers because they tend to be thin but strong, and burn evenly without affecting the flavor of your weed.

Step 4: Roll the Joint

This step can make or break the quality of your joint. Tuck the unglued side of the paper into the roll, roll it up, and use the glued edge to tack down one end of the paper, using just a little bit of moisture.

Step 5: Seal the Deal

Finally, pack the end of the joint to help ensure an even burn. A penis 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
