by MATCHBOX BROS Jun 20 2023

Rolling a cone is an essential skill herb lovers should master. Whether medicinal or recreational, a well-rolled cone can make all the difference in the smoking experience. But the task of learning how to roll a cone can seem daunting for those who have never tried rolling. This guide has all the tips and tricks you need to learn how to roll a cone and start smoking like a pro.

Rolling a Cone by Hand

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you start rolling a cone, gather all the supplies you need. This includes rolling papers, a crutch, a grinder, and your choice of herb.

Rolling papers come in different sizes, so choose one that suits your preference. Your crutch or filter tip will keep the cone sturdy and ensure you don't inhale any loose herbs while smoking. Grinders are essential for a fine consistency when it comes to herbs.

Step 2: Grind Your Herb

The next step is to grind your herb until it is a fine consistency. This will help the herb burn evenly while smoking and make it easier to roll into the cone shape. You can always break up your herb with your fingers or scissors if you don't have a grinder.

Step 3: Roll the Paper

Place your herb in the center of the paper and make sure there's enough to create a cone shape. To start rolling a cone, gently press the mixture down with your fingertips and gradually develop a cone as you roll. Remember, do not overstuff the paper because it will make rolling difficult.

Step 4: Secure the Cone

To avoid a mess and conserve herbs, pinch and twist the top as you finish rolling the cone. Once rolled up, firmly lick and press down the glue strip on the back of the paper. Hold the cone shape for a few seconds to ensure a tight seal.

Step 5: Enjoy!

You have now successfully learned how to roll a cone by hand! Light it up and enjoy the smooth smoking experience with your friends.

Open the roller and pack your herbal blend between the rollers. Insert the tip into the roller. Make sure the thinner side of the cone tip is closest to the left side. Gently move the front roller back to its position.

Step 4: Insert the paper.

With the rollers still closed, insert your paper from the top of the roller with the gum line facing toward you. Turn the front roller towards you and moisten the gum line once the paper is halfway in. Spin the roller a few more times to complete the roll.
