To prevent the joint from unrolling, wet the adhesive strip of the paper. Compressing the weed inside is also a must to assure an even burn. Once both steps are done, twist to secure the open end.
Two short rolling papers are required to roll an L joint. Most people use 1-1/4 joint sheets, but some also go with 1-1/2s or singles. More than preference, one reason for making L joints could also be due to the lack of long papers. Materials needed: 2 short rolling papers (1-1/4, 1-1/2, or single) Cannabis bud Herb grinder Cardboard or pre-made crutch. Grind the cannabis bud into a coarse grain using an herb grinder. Do not overdo it as a pulverized weed is not ideal for a joint. Create an L-shaped rolling paper using 2 small sheets.
The first paper should have its adhesive side up and facing self. The second one should then be glued to the first sheet while in a 90° counterclockwise position. To lessen the smoke from the paper, cutting the rotated wrap diagonally, with the longer side by the first sheet, will do. To make a roach, roll a 5.5 x 1.7 cm cardboard tightly. As an option and for convenience, pre-made filters could also be purchased from dispensaries or online. It also does not take long to get used to rolling it into a conical form. Either way, arrange the ground weed and the paper for the shape intended. Because two papers were used, there will also be two adhesive strips. Wet the paper holding the roach and most of the weed first, and roll in as usual. Do the same with the tip paper and spiral it around. Then, compress the ground cannabis inside before twisting and securing the open tip. Rolling a double-roached shotgun joint is creative and adds to the experience. Instead of one, it uses two crutches to make it look like a firearm. It may seem complicated to create, but even beginners can easily do it. Materials needed: Rolling Paper (king or king slim) Cannabis bud Herb grinder Cardboard or pre-made crutches. Use the herb grinder to grind the cannabis into coarse grains. Do not overdo as powdery-fine weed cannot be appropriately rolled. As an option, it could also be made at home by tightly rolling two 5.5 x 1.7 cm cardboards separately. Add the ground cannabis bud and put both roaches at the tip of the paper. For this style, users can only roll a straight joint; a cone is most definitely a no go. Use the forefingers to support the paper with the mix while the thumbs do most of the rolling. Once the weed feels compressed, fold the wrap down and roll it towards self. Moisten the adhesive strip and seal the paper by wrapping it around, then twist the top to close.
Rolling a joint rather than using pre-made ones come with plenty of advantages.
From the cannabis strain to the roach and the kind of paper used, every component can be customized to preference. It can also be as expensive or as cheap as one wants. Moreover, it assures the freshness of the weed in every session.
