HOW TO: ROLL A JOINT – FREESTYLE
STEP 1: LOAD IT
Start with the rolling paper “sticky side up.” Keep in mind that loading too little marijuana will result in a “pinner,” while loading too much will prevent the joint from closing properly.
STEP 2: SHAPE IT
Carefully shape the joint by rolling it back and forth until the weed in the rolling paper is evenly dispersed and cylindrical in shape.
STEP 3: ROLL IT
Roll the bottom end of the paper up and tuck it over the top of the weed while pulling end to end (to ensure tightness). Continue to roll the paper from the bottom up until only the sticky strip is showing.
STEP 4: LICK IT
Lick the sticky strip of the paper and seal the joint. Lightly twist both ends of the joint to keep the weed from falling out.
STEP 5: SPARK IT
Hold the joint in your mouth (or in your hand as shown) and spark it up. If the joint has trouble igniting, give it a few puffs and suck the flame toward the joint.
BUD SAYS: About Rolling a Joint – This technique is a MUST for every pot smoker to have in their “bag of tricks.” You don’t always need to smoke joints, but it’s great to always have the option.
