How to roll a Joint, Manually Roll a Joint and Lighting Tip
Joint Rolling information: Most people reading this will be well practiced the art of rolling a decent, smokeable joint. However, for those with more thumbs than fingers and a zero rating on the Kudos scale, here are few basic tips.
The mix is perhaps the most important part of the joint. Make sure the consistency is even and break-up or remove any lumps or woody bits.
The shape of the finished joint is decided by how you distribute the mix over the papers. Many of the numbers here are cone-shape. Cones tend to smoke more smoothly than straight joints, but are slightly harder to roll.
Putting the roach in before rolling is recommended and saves time and hassle. You're also more likely to get a perfect fit.
Now for the 'tricky' bit. Pick everything up and start in the middle, rolling outwards. Let your thumbs do most of the work and give support and pressure with your forefingers. You should start to feel the mix firming inside the paper.
When you have an even consistency tuck down the facing paper edge with tips of your thumbs, wrap the excess paper around the joint, wet the and seal that baby!
The best joints are firm but so tight you have to bust a lung drawing smoke. Loose joints taste rough, burn too fast and have a nasty habit of setting light to clothing and furniture.
Remember that even though some folks do roll Legal Buds in paper and smoke it, a water-pipe, bong or vaporizer is best to smoke alternative smoke blends for maximum effects. Alternatives Smokes should not be smoked in cigarette form because the leaves need to undergo combustion by means of a much hotter flame than an ordinary cigarette lighter. So if you must roll it like a joint , we have found that an electrically charged, butane "torch" type lighter works the best for any method you decide to smoke it. To smoke it correctly, hold the flame directly over the herbs, igniting them for the entire duration of the inhalation. The smoke must be inhaled quickly and held deeply.
The Roach: How to Make a Roach to Filter Your Joint
Roaches are not made to filter the smoke but they do allow it to flow, and the smoke condenses in cyclinders. A good roach also stops the joint from dissolving in your mouth or burning your lips when you chase that last toke. Here's how easy way to make a good one. The size and shape of roach is something of personal taste. Wider roaches can make smoke rough whereas tighter ones tend to clog, so somewhere in the middle is most likely the best.
Using plain, unprinted card is healthier as some printing inks can emit poisonous fumes when burnt. An excellent roach can be made from a 2cm by 7cm strip of thin card. Tightly roll the card at a slight angel so that the end of the roach is conical. Roll your joint with the roach already inside with the conical end facing outward and let the card spring out a little to allow the smoke to flow through. You can to insert the roach after rolling the joint or you can put the roach in before rolling making it a neater fit and a speedier roll. Go with what toots your horn.
