Angle the Perfect Roll

Even if you’ve got the most high-quality weed around, if you’re not rolling it the right way, it’s all for nothing. The first step to getting the perfect roll is to angle your paper correctly, and this all relies on where you place the paper on the table.

The best way to start is to hold your paper at a diagonal angle because the paper needs to be measured in proportion to the amount of weed you want to use. Once you’ve decided on the amount of weed, you should start folding the paper into a “W” shape by pinching the corners of the paper in two places. This will help you lay out your weed in a more manageable fashion.

Setting Yourself Up for Success

The next step is to strategically place the weed on the papers. The best way to do this is to keep the amount of weed spread out and not overwhelmed by one area. Once the weed has been spread out, it’s time to roll the weed. Use your thumbs to keep the papers taut as you begin to roll the weed.

Make sure to keep a steady hand as you roll and remember to keep the weed in the center of the paper. This is a step that can take time to perfect so be sure to review the previous steps if you run into any hiccups.

Pack the Perfect Joint

After you’ve rolled the weed and attached the paper, it’s time to pack the joint. This is when you should use a pencil or the palms of your hand to secure the papers together. Remember to start at the base of the papers and roll your way up the joint. This will help keep the weed in place and ensure that it doesn’t spill out when you go to smoke it.

Get Creative

Just like any art form, the perfect joint is not complete without a creative twist. One way to spruce up your roll is to try a “twist.” To achieve this unique look, first lay the paper over the “W” paper-fold shape so that the ends of the paper are pointing toward you.

Then, use your thumb to gently guide the paper back and forth, this will help form the “twist”. Once you’ve got the desired amount of twist, roll it into a joint and secure it with a piece of tape for a unique look. There are an endless number of other creative rolls you can try, such as the classic “prayer roll” if you’re feeling extra adventurous.
