Joints are the most commonly known way to smoke marijuana because of how quickly you are able to roll a joint.

There are a couple of things you have to keep in mind when attempting to roll a joint of any kind. First thing to remember is that the way you break down the marijuana is the most important part of the entire process and will determine the outcome of the joint. If you do not break the buds into small enough pieces the joint will not be able to take on the classic tube shape and come out looking disfigured and could possibly even lead to holes in the paper. The second most important part of learning how to roll a joint is understanding how tight the joint needs to be. If you roll the joint to tight it will be extremely hard to pull because of the lack of airflow, while if you roll the joint to loose it will cause for it to burn fast and taste harsh. Loose joints are also known for burning inconsistently and allowing pieces of bud to escape the roach and get into your mouth when smoking them.

What Are Rolling Papers Made Of?
Rolling papers are most commonly made with some sort of a hemp, wood pulp, flax, or rice as a base material. They are normally made in a rectangular shape with a strip of glue running along the one side. Rice papers are usually longer then normal papers and are used for the highest quality joints.

What Is A Roach?
A roach is a piece of index card that is inserted into the end of a joint to stop it from clogging up and to stop pieces of marijuana from falling out. Roaches do not act like a filter but simply open the end of your joint so the smoke can flow freely. Roaches are rolled in a cone shape so that they condense the smoke, making all the hit smoother on your throat.
How Do I Make A Roach?
When making a roach the size and the width should depend on the size of the joint. Wide roaches allow for a lot of smoke to pass through which can cause the smoke to be rough, whereas thin roaches cool the smoke but tend to clog. Tear thin strip from a index card about a centimeter wide and roll it at a slight angle, this should look like a cone.
How Do I Use A Roach?
To use your roach you simply need to roll your joint with the roach already placed at the end of it(small part of the cone facing outward). Rolling your joint with the roach already inside makes for quick and easy roll. Attempting to insert the roach after rolling can make the joint flimsy.
Frequently Asked Joint Questions
Are Joints Safe?
Joints are not completely healthy because you are inhaling smoke, and smoke entering your lungs in any way shape or form is bad for you, but they are far better for you then a tobacco cigarette. The only safe way for someone to consume marijuana is by eating it. Bongs are safer for the smoker then joints because of the way they filter the smoke through water.
Do Joints Conserve Weed?
People like to think that joints waste marijuana more then a bong or pipe because joints burn consistently, even when someone is not smoking them. This is true, but when smoking a joint the users should not be standing around letting the joint burn in there hand. When smoking a joint the smoker should take his hits and pass the joint, this way when the smoker is enjoying his hit the next person it taking theirs so no weed is wasted.
Should I Use A Joint Or A Bong?
Bongs are a lot easier for beginner smokers to use because all you need to do is pack the bowl and light it while you inhale. Joints take time and skill to roll so one will need to practice before he/she is able to roll a satisfying joint. Besides that the number of people smoking is a major factor when it comes to choosing a smoking method. Joints are small and should not be used when sharing with more then 4 people, I prefer 2 max. Bongs are easier to refill and keep the session going smoothly so are great for larger groups or smokers or when planing on smoking a lot of weed.
How Much Marijuana Should A Joint Contain?
One of the most important things you need to know when you first attempt to learn how to roll a joint is the amount of marijuana you need to use. The amount of weed used in each joint will differ depending on whether you are using pure herb or a mixture of weed and tobacco. Typical joints contain anywhere from 0.4 to 1.5 grams of marijuana, depending on the quality of the marijuana.
