How To Roll A Basic Joint Without A Filter

Starting off, you should roll a basic joint without a filter. For a basic joint, you need your supply of cannabis, a 78 or 79mm joint rolling machine, and standard rolling papers with gummed edges.

Grinding Your Marijuana

Your marijuana should be ground into a medium/coarse consistency.

Add Your Cannabis To The Machine

Place the machine in a lowered position and fill the chamber approximately two-thirds full with your weed then use your fingertips to even it out.

Start The Rolling Process

Close the machine by moving the bottom roller to the top position then roll forward toward yourself, doing this with only a couple of twists.

Apply The Paper

Add the paper by feeding it from the bottom edge of the paper into the machine and make sure the gummed edge is at the top facing you.

Operate The Joint Rolling Machine

Move the joint-rolling machine forward, slowly and evenly rolling the paper approximately halfway into the machine.

Lick The Gum Strip

At this point, lick the gummed edge at the top of the paper and continue to roll it the rest of the way which will probably go around a few times.
Remove the rolled joint very carefully and admire your fine work! Now, just enjoy it!

How To Roll An Advanced Joint With A Filter

Your Supplies

You will need your marijuana, a standard joint rolling machine, gummed edged rolling papers, and pre-made filter tips.

Grinding Your Weed

Your weed should be grounded into a medium/coarse consistency.

Fold And Roll Your Tip

Fold one end over with 3 or 4 small folds back and forth forming an “M” or “W” shape. Using something with a hard edge, scrape the rest of the length of the tip at a steep angle, forcing the paper to curl upward. Now roll the paper around the folded inner end into a tight little ring. If done correctly, it will expand just a bit when you let go.

Placing The Filter And Adding Your Weed

Place the filter on one end of the rolling machine and fill it evenly with your weed at the same height or just a bit more than the filter tip.

Close & Roll

The same instructions used for Basic, close the machine by move the bottom roller to the top position then roll forward toward yourself, doing this with only a couple of twists.

Add The Paper & Roll

Position the paper and roll it approximately halfway but leave enough room so you can easily lick the gummed edge.

Lick The Paper

Lick the gummed edge then roll it until the paper pulls all the way into the joint rolling machine. Apply a couple of twists to even it out then smooth it off.

Remove Your Advanced Joint

Remove your newly created advanced joint and admire fine work! Now just enjoy it!

Grinding The Cannabis

The same as Basic and Advanced, your cannabis should be grounded into a medium/coarse consistency.

Add Your Filter & Cannabis

Apply Your Paper

Very carefully, feed your paper into the machine, keeping it as even as possible. Then, roll it approximately halfway down.
