How To Roll A Joint Step-By-Step
What Is a Joint?
Before we get into the different steps that you need to take so you can roll a joint it’s important that you know exactly what a joint is. We appreciate that not everyone is familiar with what a joint is or how it works so we have covered this below.
While there are different types of joints, generally, a joint is simply a hemp-rolled cigarette. Joints are different from other cigarettes because they contain hemp-derived flower or cannabis, and sometimes small amounts of tobacco.
Tobacco cigarettes also often come pre-packaged and pre-rolled, however, joints generally don’t come pre-rolled. However, it is possible to get Delta 8 pre-rolls.
How to Roll a Joint
Now that we have covered what a joint is, we can take a closer look at how to roll a joint. It is worth noting that there are a few different steps that you will want to follow which we have outlined below.
You should also have a few resources to roll your joint including:
– Hemp-Derived Flower (i.e. Hemp CBD Flower, Delta 8 THC Flower, THCO Flower, HHC Flower)
– A grinder
– Filter tip/Crutch
– Rolling papers
You can also learn how to roll a joint without a filter.
How To Roll A Joint Step 1: Grind the Flower
Before we get into all of the steps for actually rolling the joint it’s important that you prepare your hemp-derived flower so that it is ready to be used. You should not overlook this step because if you don’t have your hemp-derived flower ground down properly then it won’t fit in the filter paper.
Not only this, but it may also not taste great and be overly strong in certain areas.
To grind your flower all you need is a grinder. Simply put your cannabis in the grinder and twist the grinder until your flower becomes an oregano-like consistency.
This will get your hemp into perfect condition so that it is ready for you to use.
How To Roll A Joint Step 2: Get Your Filter Tip Ready
If you want to roll a good joint so that you can really enjoy your experience of getting high, then you need a good filter tip. This plays a key role in preventing your joint from being too strong.
Without a filter tip or crutch, you won’t get the right amount of smoke out of it and the end that you are smoking can also become wet.
Instead, you’ll want to use a good filter tip or crutch to make sure that your joint is rolled perfectly. One of the things that you can use for a crutch is a sturdy piece of paper or cardboard.
Alternatively, you can get proper crutches from a store that specializes in hemp.
If you are using a piece of cardboard then you should break a piece off that is two to three inches. Then simply roll it up so it is small enough to go inside your joint and have it ready.
How To Roll A Joint Step 3: Sprinkle In Your Flower
The next step is to add your hemp shake to the joint. This step is pretty straightforward, all you have to do is grab a piece of rolling paper and sprinkle in some of your delta 8 THC shake.
It is important to note that the stronger you want your joint to be, the more hemp you can use. However, if you want a joint that isn’t too strong then you can add less hemp and add in some tobacco too.
This will also help the joint taste a bit smoother as you are inhaling it.
How To Roll A Joint Step 4: Roll and Enjoy
Once you have sprinkled in some hemp shake, then it’s time to roll. There are two ways to do this, one is to get a rolling machine, and the other is to roll it yourself.
If you roll it yourself then you should start by holding the paper with your thumb and index finger then roll them back and forth. This should create a cone-like shape and your hemp should be sitting right in the middle of it.
From here, you need to tuck your paper’s unglued part into the roll. Then lick the seal edge and roll it one more time and finally seal it.
After all of these steps, you should have a perfectly rolled joint.
