How to Roll a Joint with a Filter Step by Step

You'll notice any steps on how to roll the perfect joint always includes a weed filter. The handmade filter creates a structured, easy way to roll a joint. The filter tip allows for a thick, round foundation for rolling papers that tend to be a little flimsy.

The most common rolled joint you may have heard of is a zig zag, like, you know, Colt 45 and 2 zig zags? If you weren't that lucky to be raised in such a prime era, we're here to help!

So, let's break down how to roll a joint with a filter step by step:

Step 1. Create Joint Filter

Roll your zig zag rectangle or raw filter back and forth, accordion-style, into the shape of a W. With the remaining tip paper, roll around the W to finish off a circle.

Step 2. Fill Up Joint Paper

Get your rolling paper and lay it flat on your rolling tray. Place the weed filter tip at one end of the rolling paper. Grab your ground weed from the grinder. Use your best judgment for how much weed you wish to use. Generally, you will be using about a half to a full gram of weed. A full gram of weed will aid in the joint's sturdiness. The less weed you use, the flimsier the joint, the more difficult to roll. If this is your first time, 1 gram will make this easier.

Spread weed evenly throughout the crease of the rolling paper. Leave a little bit of space at the other end, opposite the joint tip, so you can twist the paper to light once you're ready.

Step 3. Rolling the Joint with Filter

Once the cannabis and joint filter tip are in place, you're going to begin rolling. This part can seem a little tricky at first and may take a few tries. Don't get frustrated. You'll get it! Tuck the paper with your thumb nail as you use your pointer finger as a base. Roll the paper over your thumb nail, around the weed, closing the joint off from pointer finger side to thumb side. You will lick the rolling paper to seal the joint as you go.

Step 4. Pack & Twist Joint

Once you've conquered rolling a joint, you should have an opening big enough to poke and pack the joint in. Use a pen, pencil, qtip, toothpick, paperclip, anything that will fit into the joint's end; gently push the weed down towards the joint filter. Not too hard, just enough to give you some room to twist the joint.

Now for the fun part! Light that beautiful, perfectly rolled joint up and get lit!
