by MATCHBOX BROS Jul 24 2023

Whether you're a seasoned smoker or just starting out, knowing how to roll papers is a skill that will elevate your smoking experience. It might seem daunting at first, but with a little practice and guidance, you'll master the technique in no time. So, let's embark on this journey to perfect your rolling technique.

Choosing the Right Rolling Paper

Before you even start rolling, you need to choose the right paper. Rolling papers come in various types, sizes, and flavors. For a beginner, it's recommended to start with a larger size, like Elements King Size Ultra Thin Rice Papers, which provides more room for error and easier handling.

Gathering Your Materials

Once you have your rolling paper, you'll need a grinder to break down your herb into a rollable consistency. You'll also need a filter or crutch to place at the end of your joint. A rolling tray can be helpful to contain any spills and keep your rolling area clean.

Step 1: Grinding Your Herb

The first step in the rolling process is to properly grind your herb. You want to achieve a consistency that is neither too fine nor too coarse. A uniformly ground herb will ensure an even burn and prevent any potential runs.

Step 2: Making Your Filter or Crutch

Next, make your filter or crutch. You can use specially made filter tips, or you can make one out of thin cardboard. Fold the end of the material a few times, then roll the rest around the folded part to create a cylindrical shape.

Step 3: Filling and Shaping Your Joint

Now, take your rolling paper and hold it with the glue strip facing up and at the top. Place the filter at one end of the paper and fill the rest with your ground herb. Use your fingers to shape the herb into a cylindrical form, packing it down lightly.

Step 4: Rolling Your Joint

Roll the paper back and forth between your fingers to further shape the herb. Once you have a nice cylindrical shape, tuck the non-glue side of the paper into the roll, then roll it up until just the adhesive strip is left. Lick or wet the glue strip, then finish rolling. Use your fingers to press and seal the joint.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Lastly, you'll want to pack the end of the joint to ensure an even burn. You can use a pen or the end of a matchstick to lightly pack the herb down. Then twist the end of the joint to seal it off, and voila, you've rolled your joint!

In conclusion, learning how to roll papers is a valuable skill that enhances the ritual and experience of smoking. It may take a few tries to perfect, but the end result is certainly worth it. Ready to roll? Check out the wide variety of rolling papers available on today!
