One of the most popular and oldest ways of smoking cannabis is the well-known joint. A joint is a rolled cannabis cigarette, often made of rice or hemp paper, cradling a compact bunch of ground flowers inside it. You can build it yourself by hand or use the help of rolling devices. Doing it yourself has some advantages: you can roll slim toothpick joints or fat blunts, choose your filter option, and give them straight or coned shapes. You can also mix your ground weed with tobacco, sprinkle it with kief, or add to it a few drops of CBD extract. Lighting up a joint is not the same as with a tobacco cigarette, given that tobacco and weed have different ways of burning. Inhaling too fast during the lighting process will burn the joint unevenly and cause it to “canoe.” You have to be extra careful if your joint is lightly packed or too thick, so avoid canoeing by rolling its tip slowly near the flame to start it evenly. Here we have some additional clues about how to light a joint that will help you. Why not try one of these techniques with one of our pre-rolls?
