Seal the open end by twisting the extra paper so it resembles a candle wick. This way, there is no possibility for any weed to fall out. You can keep your joint stored away like this if you are not going to smoke it right away. Once you are ready to smoke, the twisted end will be your lighting point.
• assures the end of the joint remains open
• prevents you from burning your fingers or lips while smoking
• prevents anything from falling out of the joint
• keeps the shape of the joint sturdy
• makes smoking easier by increasing airflow through the joint
There are many types of rolling papers—have your pick. We recommend our organic hemp papers because they’re thin yet sturdy, assuring your joint burns evenly and the aroma of your strain is unaffected. Moreover, they come with filter papers as well.
STEP 8: LIGHT AND ENJOY
At this point, you are ready to indulge in your smoke. Now there is nothing between you and the sweet cannabis you just rolled. All you have to do is light it and enjoy. Your joint tastes the best the first time it’s lit. Therefore, try to smoke it all at once and not relight it. Relighting is bad for the taste, and we want you to enjoy every single puff so you get the most from your buds.
To ensure a smooth and even burn, you should now pack the joint. Use the pen (or any other object that will do the trick) to carefully press down the cannabis through the open end. You can also put back in anything that fell out earlier, or simply save it for another time. While holding the joint upright from the filtered end, gently tap it on a flat surface to compact the cannabis and push the crutch in for reinforcement.
For maximum enjoyment of a prime strain of cannabis, knowing how to roll the perfect joint is key. For a smooth smoke, it should have a shape that allows it to burn evenly. Rolling a good one takes skill, but we will gladly show you how to get the hang of it. Additionally, we have some useful recommendations for rolling papers and tools to make it easier. By following our step-by-step guide below, you will master the art of rolling joints in no time.
Make sure you do the tucking and sealing along the length of the joint slowly and gently. To prevent smoking too much paper, you can burn off the excess after sealing it. You don’t want to seal it up too tight, as it will be very hard to draw in smoke and take a hit. If it’s rolled too loose, though, it will burn unevenly or too quickly.
Having a crutch in place also allows you to smoke your joint all the way to the very tip. This little piece can act as a stopper, giving you the signal that the joint has been consumed to its end. Gone are the days of burning the tips of your fingers and lips, and you can be assured that no gram of herb will go to waste.
But the use of a crutch can make the process easier, as the hard and thick piece of cardboard can help give the joint structure and keep its contents in place.
Apart from aesthetic and smokability, a crutch in your joint can help improve the airflow. Essentially, it burns better and improves the smoke flow, which in turn gives you a more enjoyable smoking experience overall. Not to mention, it gets you higher.
YOU CAN MAKE THE MOST OUT OF EVERY JOINT
Many people take their joint rolling very seriously. While it is simply a means of preparing cannabis to be consumed, to some, it is considered an art form in and of itself.
While it can be as natural as breathing for some, for most people, rolling a joint is not as easy as a snapping one’s fingers. It can take some time, patience, and trial and error before you roll a joint that you and a group of friends can enjoy.
Constructing your own joint crutch, also called a filter or a tip, is all about preference and creativity. There are a number of different methods and shapes to choose from, such as the normal tip, a heart, a star, or even a cannabis leaf.
But one way to make your smoking experience a lot better is to use a filter. It not only is the more hygienic option by keeping that unwanted ash out of your lips and mouth, it also helps the joint burn more efficiently. But there are other advantages to using a crutch in your joint. Here are some of the most important ones.
