Now, rolling a two paper joint is exactly like rolling a single paper joint. The only thing you need to learn is how to attach the two joint papers. There are two different ways you can go about doing it.
The first way is the preferred method that is easier to roll, and that’s to take the second paper and attach it by shaping the two papers into an L shape.
You can see how it’s done in the video below.
Everything up to this point has been easy. Now is the time that the great joint rollers separate themselves from the beginners. Start by tucking the unglued side of your paper into the roll.
Lick the glued edge of the paper and roll one end down to hold it into place. If you’re using a filter, roll this end into place first. It makes it easier and helps guide the paper as it rolls around itself.
Slowly, work your way down the rest of the joint, tucking and sealing the joint as you go.
Filters are also called crutches or tips. The idea behind them is they allow you to smoke more of your bud instead of being left with an unsmokeable roach.
You also can smoke a joint a little bit better because it helps fight the resin clogging that usually happens at towards the end of the joint. To make one, it’s best to use a thin cardboard like a business card. Some papers even come with crutches built in, or you can just use an empty paper box.
RAW also makes some packs of just filter papers that, of course, work perfectly.
They’re pretty easy to make. Just make a couple of accordion folds on one end of the cardboard (basically, fold the end into a W) and then roll it up thick enough to match the width of the joint you plan on rolling.
Again, it’s not required to use a filter for your joints, but they do prevent scooby snacks (swallowing cannabis), make the joint more stable and make it easier to smoke.
The other way to roll a two paper joint is by attaching the papers slightly overlapping each other.
While this one sounds cooler since it will be a bigger joint, it tends to be pretty unstable and clog up from massive resin build up. You’re better off rolling up a blunt.
Using a joint roller is one of the easiest ways for beginners to learn how to roll joints.
Before you learn who to roll, you need to think about how you need to get your cannabis ready to be rolled. What do you need? Just a paper and some weed! (How cool is that?)
There isn’t much that goes into the preparation of a joint, but I wanted to talk a little bit about how to prepare the cannabis for one.
Some smokers like to use grinders, and you really can’t go wrong with that. If you grind up your bud to finely for a joint, however, it can lead to a joint that ends up being hard to hit and gets bogged down with resin. When rolling up a joint, it’s always best to go with a somewhat rougher grind.
Aside from that, make sure you have some good joint papers and maybe a rolling tray.
Getting high or stoned is nice, but have you ever gotten too high or too stoned? We got some very useful tips and tricks for whenever this happens. Read it here.
Before you can roll, you need to prep everything.
As mentioned earlier, you can use a grinder or a rough finger grind to prepare your cannabis. You can also use scissors or any other homemade grinders. I recommend you play around with different methods to see which you like the best because they do not all smoke the same.
Usually, when I’m asked to teach a beginner how to roll a joint, using a dollar bill is the first method I go to. It’s like joint rolling with training wheels, and it helps you perfect the motions.
Here’s how to do it:
First, you need a paper, some weed and a dollar bill. Fold the dollar in half and place some ground up bud in the middle of the dollar. Spread the cannabis out evenly.
Fold the dollar bill back in half keeping the cannabis at the crease in the bill. Using your thumbs, work the bud towards the bottom of the crease by slowly rolling the dollar back and forth.
Roll the dollar bill down to where the end of the dollar is just covering the weed. Holding the dollar in place with one hand, place the joint paper in the opening with the adhesive facing you (just like a joint roller) and lick the adhesive.
Then, roll the dollar bill slowly back up. Make sure not to roll it too tight, or the joint will not be smokeable. Roll the dollar up until you can’t anymore, and the doobie will be done.
So you’ve got the joint loaded and shaped, now is the time to roll it up. Do so by pinching the paper between your fingertips and slowly roll it back and forth to pack the cannabis down.
Once you see it taking the shape of a joint, it’s time to go to the next step.
Learning how to roll a joint is an essential stoner skill. Think about it. Glass breaks, is expensive and is hard to travel with.
Many consumers prefer to do this by rolling their own cannabis cigarettes, known as joints. With this comprehensive step-by-step guide on how to roll a joint and a just little practice, you can roll perfect joints every time.
Many rolling papers feature a sticky substance on one edge that when moistened helps provide a seal. After you’ve rolled your joint, you’ll want to lick the adhesive strip and seal your joint by pressing the glue side onto the joint. Starting with the crutch or mouthpiece end, begin sealing the joint with even pressure.
Here is the simple six-step process for the easiest way how to roll a joint:
Be sure not to overfill it since adding too much can make your joint difficult to close. If you find yourself with excess paper, you can trim it off the side without adhesive before rolling your joint to ensure you aren’t smoking extra paper.
Why use a crutch when rolling a joint? While a crutch isn’t necessarily essential, it reinforces a joint’s mouthpiece and makes it easier to hold. Crutches increase airflow in your joint, allowing an easier draw when taking a hit. You also won’t burn your lips as easily, you can smoke the entire joint, and you won’t get bits of marijuana in your mouth when drawing during a hit. While a crutch is commonly called a joint filter, it doesn’t actually effectively filter the smoke.

A study published in 2016 concluded that the average joint is 0.32 grams . This number has been contested by some in the cannabis community, and it may not mean much to you personally. When deciding how much marijuana to add to your joint, take into consideration your own tolerance for cannabis and the level of effects you are looking to achieve. Joint rolling papers come in a variety of sizes, giving you the freedom to roll the joint size you prefer.
Put your rolling paper on a flat surface in front of you with the adhesive strip facing up on the side furthest from you. Place your crutch where your joint’s mouthpiece will be, and then use your fingers to fill the rest of the rolling paper with your pre-ground cannabis.
