How to Roll a Marijuana Cigarette (Joint)

As much as the legalization and decriminalization of cannabis began within recent years, there is a wide range of strains available. Each strain has a unique euphoric effect on its user. For instance, ‘pineapple express’ and ‘lemon haze weed’ will not offer the same psychoactive experience due to the difference in cannabinoids concentration levels. Once you pick the right buds, you can either smoke them using a bong or roll a marijuana cigarette. The information in this article aims to help you learn how to roll a joint, especially if it’s your first time.

Do you have all your rolling essentials? These include cannabis buds or flowers, a rolling tray, rolling papers, grinder, filter tips, lighter, and ashtray. If you are yet to have all these, consider visiting an online smoke shop and making purchases. When going on a smoking session, it’s advisable to have a bottle of water to stay hydrating.


Begin by placing your grinder, buds, a sleeve of rolling paper, and filter tip on the tray. Break up the buds into small bits and put them in the top layer of your grinder. Once you have the size you desire, proceed with the grinding process. Pour out the final product and take out any seeds or stems that may be present.

Take the sleeve of rolling paper and place a filter tip on one end of it. Fill the hollow part of the paper with the ground product until it’s enough. Using the filter tips as a guide, gradually mold the weed between your fingers to take a cylindrical shape. Starting from where your tip is, tuck in the rolling paper, and tightly roll up to the other end. Once done rolling the weed, lick the sticky end, and tap your joint on the filter end to keep things intact.


If you have no experience rolling a joint, consider trying with and without a filter tip to determine which method is easy. It’s advisable to consider rolling regular-size joints since kingsize ones are more complicated to roll, especially for beginners. Always have an ashtray to avoid burning stuff or dirtying your living space.

Don’t worry if your first attempt doesn’t turn out a success. To avoid this technical process, you can consider buying a rolling machine. They are straightforward to use and affordable. To get better at rolling marijuana cigarettes, you will have to practice extensively. I hope this information comes in handy. Have a pleasant 420!
