Cannabis Flower Rolling Tips for Beginners: Joints 101

All Natural Rolling Papers - Marijuana Joint Rolling

Hey there, welcome back to the Capeway Cannabis Dispensary blog series! Are you just stepping into the intriguing world of cannabis? Or perhaps you’ve been here a while, but rolling your own joints feels like a daunting skill to conquer? No worries! Keep reading for some simple cannabis flower rolling tips for beginners. 

After all, we’re here to make the natural wellness experience enjoyable, empowering, and inviting for you.

Step 1 – Gather the Necessities

Before we start diving into the how, let’s talk about the what. Here’s a basic checklist of supplies you’d need:

  • Cannabis Flower: This is the star of the show! Whether you choose the bud for its flavor, therapeutic benefits, or because it’s a Capeway Cannabis staff recommendation, the choice is all yours!
  • Rolling Papers: Available in varied materials and sizes, from hemp to rice to wood pulp. Experiment and find what works best for you!
  • Grinder: This tool turns your chosen bud into the fluffy, evenly ground cannabis ideal for rolling. It’s like a tiny mill for your flower!
  • Crutch (For the joint filter): A helpful little addition, rolled from thin cardboard or stiff paper.

Step 2 – Prepare Your Cannabis

Your experience begins here. Take your time appreciating the complexities and beauty of your cannabis flower before you break it apart. Use a grinder to crumble your cannabis into a fluffy consistency. 

But remember, friends, the grind must strike a balance: it should neither be too coarse nor too fine. If too coarse, you risk an uneven burn. If it’s too fine, the joint could get clogged. Aim for a fluffy and even consistency, perfectly balanced for a smooth, enjoyable smoke.

Step 3 – Create Your Filter or Crutch

At Capeway, premier Massachusetts cannabis dispensary, we always encourage questions and exploration. So, you might ask, “What makes crutches so essential?” Well, dear friend, not only do they provide improved airflow, but they also offer much-needed support to your joint. This way, you can appreciate every puff down to the very last, without burning your fingers or wasting precious bud.

Are you ready to create that crutch? Don’t worry; we’re with you every step of the way. Start by selecting a sturdy yet flexible material — most people use thin cardboard or a rolling paper booklet’s flap. 

Now, fold a small piece of your chosen material into an accordion-like shape, and then carefully roll it into a tight cylinder. Voila! You’ve just crafted the perfect crutch that will serve as a reliable filter and holder for your joint.

Step 4 – Fill the Rolling Paper

With all the preparations done, it’s time to bring everything together – the paper, the crutch, and that beautifully ground cannabis.

First, let’s lay out your chosen rolling paper on a flat surface. Make sure the glue-side is facing up, so it’ll be easy to seal your masterpiece once it’s ready. Feel free to pause here, absorb this moment, and know that you’re about to embark on a genuinely delightful part of your cannabis journey.

Now, gently place the crutch you crafted earlier at one end of the paper. It’ll serve as both the foundation and the supportive pillar for your joint.

Next, it’s time to shower your rolling paper with love – that is, the finely ground cannabis you prepared earlier. Gently sprinkle it across the paper, ensuring a balanced distribution so your joint will burn evenly and smoothly. Remember, this is your moment to explore, play, and get creative. There’s no rush – enjoy every bit of this meditative process.

Step 5 – Roll It Up

And here we are, at the most artful phase of our journey. Rolling your joint. Start by lightly pinching the paper between your fingers and rolling it back and forth to pack the cannabis down. Carefully fold in the unglued side, roll the joint up, and lick the glue side to seal it.
