If you’re looking to learn how to roll a flower joint, you’ve come to the right place. Life is unpredictable, and there will be times that you do not have a pipe or other accessories to smoke from. That is why knowing how to make a proper joint is a handy skill to have. Learning how to roll a joint does not have to be complicated. If you have tried and failed or have never rolled a joint, this is the perfect step-by-step guide for you. We will break down how to roll a joint while showing you the top products to give you the easiest experience possible!

What You Need to Roll A Flower Joint

Before we begin rolling a joint, you must gather a few items. You will need:
  • Cannabis Flower
  • Grinder
  • Rolling paper
  • Filter Tips
  • Lighter

These few items are all you need to make the perfect flower joint. What brand you choose for your grinder, paper, and filter tips is all based on preference. However, choosing a high-quality flower to go in your joint is critical if you want the best flower joint.

Flower Quality

If you can, try using a high-quality flower in your joint. Using premium flower in your joint will not only taste better but will offer you the experience you want. If you do not have access to high-quality hemp near you, don’t worry, we got your back!

If Delta 8 is legal in your state, Hometown Hero offers high-quality products that can be delivered discreetly and safely to your door!

Steps to Roll the Perfect Joint

Now that you have all your tools let’s make the perfect flower joint!

Step 1: Grind the Flower

Use any grinder you have on hand and break it down as small as possible. Once the flower has been ground, it should be crumbly and free of stems, allowing the joint to burn evenly. If you don’t have a grinder, you can break the flower up by using your hand. We do not recommend using your hand unless you have to. If the flower is not broken into small enough pieces, it won’t light as easily and could potentially not light evenly, resulting in your joint canoeing. A canoed joint is when one side of the joint is burning, while the other remains untouched. This leaves one side open, like a canoe.

Step 2: Place Your Filter Tip

Grab the joint filter and fold it in a few accordion folds. Once this is completed, lay the rolling paper on a flat surface, then place the filter on one end of the paper. It should be perfectly aligned with the edge of the rolling paper. Having a filter is not needed, but it does make the experience much better! When you use a filter, it will increase airflow in your joint and prevent any flower from entering your mouth. If you do not have a filter, you can make one from thin cardboard. Creating a filter is easy to make, but it is not as convenient as having a filter ready to go.

Step 3: Fill the Paper with Cannabis

Fill the paper with cannabis. Depending on the size of joint you are making, you may alter how much cannabis you use. We recommend using a half gram to make an average-sized joint. As you fill the paper with cannabis, you will begin to see the joint form.

Step 4: Roll the Joint

Once you have placed your filter and ground flower in the paper, we will begin the process of rolling. Grab the paper by both ends. Using your index fingers and thumbs, begin to roll the piece back and forth to push the flower into a tight log. Continue this motion until the joint is tightly closed.

TIP - If you are having trouble rolling your joint because it keeps getting loose, we recommend you restart and begin with a tighter pinch around the filter.

Step 5: The Final Touch

After your joint is almost fully rolled, there is a glue inseam on the end of the rolling paper. You will then lick the glue inseam to bind to the paper. After completing the joint, you can save it for later or use it now!

They might make you the designated roller! Before we go, we wanted to tell you that practice makes perfect. The more you roll, the better the joint will look and perform. Don’t worry if it takes you a few times to make the joint that meets your standards. Just don’t give up, and before you know it, you will be an expert at rolling flower joints!


Why can't I roll a joint?

Learning how to roll a joint can be difficult, but it doesn't have to be when you follow the correct steps! Follow our guide, and you will know how to roll a joint correctly.

When to roll a joint?

You should roll a joint when it best fits your schedule and needs!

Can you roll a joint tight or loose?

Neither! If you roll a joint too loose, it will either fall apart or burn too quickly. If you roll a joint too tight, you will not be able to inhale from it. It is best to roll a joint tight enough to securely hold the cannabis in place while loose enough to allow airflow.
