How Much Weed Is in a Joint?

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Roll the Perfect Joint

Follow these seven simple steps to roll a classic cone joint, even for beginners. Gather your rolling supplies: Cannabis or CBD Strain, Rolling papers, Crutch (filter tip), Herb grinder, and optional rolling packer.

  • Grind the cannabis: Use a grinder to break down the cannabis into shake. If you don’t have a grinder, use other methods like hand or scissors. Herb grinder
  • Create a joint crutch: Make a crutch, also called a tip or filter. Start with a few "accordion" folds at the end of the cardboard, then roll the material to the desired thickness of your joint.
  • Fill your joint with cannabis: Place the shake and the crutch into the rolling paper and begin to shape the joint.
  • Pack the joint: Roll the paper back and forth to pack the cannabis down into its final cone shape.
  • Roll the 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.
  • Finish your joint: Pack the end of the joint to help ensure an even burn. You can use a pen or other small items to pack the cannabis tightly.
