How to roll a joint

Step 1: Grind the Cannabis

Break down your cannabis into shake. If your cannabis 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 grind the herb down by hand, using scissors, or any number of other breakdown methods.

I use a Coffee Grinder and find this super fast and easy.  (take out any stalk) 
Do not grind it too much as you don’t want to make powder, just test it out a few seconds at a time. 

Step 2: Create Joint Filter

Make a filter, also called a tip. You can make a filter out of just about anything, but thin cardboard or business cards are solid go-tos.

A lot of joint papers also include filter 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 filter 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 cannabis without burning your fingertips.

Step 3: Fill Joint with Cannabis

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.

A quick note on papers: There are a lot of different types and flavors of joint papers available.

Many people prefer hemp papers (see below) because they tend to be thin but strong, and burn evenly without affecting the flavor of the cannabis.)

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 filter 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.

If you’re not planning on sparking your joint right away, you may want to close the tip with a twist.
