Joint 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Rolling A Joint

The joint is one of the most common smoking methods. Ideal for special events and casual get-togethers, joints are portable, easy to use and share with a group of smokers. 

The practice of grinding down your favorite herbs and rolling them up in a paper is can be an incredibly enjoyable, therapeutic experience. But, to ensure your smoking experience is as enjoyable as possible, you want to make sure that you use a well-constructed joint. 

Rolling a joint requires a bit of practice and patience. If you’re new to joint rolling, here are some tips to improve your technique:

Rolling paper

The paper you pick can make or break your smoking experience. There are different rolling papers available on the market. Available in different materials, each paper has its own characteristics.

As a general rule of thumb, you should opt for high quality, unbleached papers with fewer contaminants. Hemp paper is a great choice for amateur smokers. It’s thin, easy to roll and burns evenly.

Rolling papers come in many flavors and sizes. The size of a paper typically depends on the number of smokers, a person’s tolerance level, etc. That said, 1 ¼ is a popular size option for a few smokers with   low tolerances. 

Purchase a good quality rolling paper protector if you carry papers with you. It will prevent papers from tearing. 


Grinding is a very important step. But, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you get a pricey grinder. Metal grinders are perfect because of their durability. When you’re grinding weed, do not rush. This will ensure smooth, even grinding. 


Mastering the rolling technique takes time. Many people mix other substances with their herbs. This obviously alters the burn time and flavor. 

Placing too much weed in the middle of a paper will cause it to roll unevenly. Instead, spread out the weed on both sides of the paper. You need to make a tube. 

Once you start rolling, the weed will spread out, taking your smoking experience to the next level.
