How to Roll a Joint Like a Pro

Hey there, friend! Ever dreamed of becoming the Michael Jordan of joint rolling? The life of the party? Or the person that all your pals look at with a mix of envy and admiration?

Well, buckle up, because we’re about to show you how to turn your dream into reality!


A rolling tray with everything needed to roll a joint.
Before you create art, you have to prepare your canvas!

First, your trusty travel companions:

  • Your T&T Easy Toke pack (or your favorite T&T whole flower!)
  • Rolling papers – We suggest Paper + Ink rolling papers if you’re feeling funky or something “au natural” like OCB
  • A crutch or filter
  • A grinder (only if you chose the road less traveled with unground T&T flower)
  • A rolling tray – like a placemat, but for weed.

Don’t settle for shake or trim, get the good stuff – premium ground flower.

Step 1a: Flower Arrangement

Grab a half-gram of pre-ground flower from your Easy Toke pack (about the size of a small/medium bud) and break apart your pre-ground flower until it’s soft and loose.

Grind it fine – but not too fine!

Step 1b: Grind It!

If you’re rolling with un-ground flower, grind it until it’s fluffy – but not too fine. We’re rolling joints, not baking a cake!

Step 2: Paperwork, But the Fun Kind

Take a single rolling paper and fold it in half down the center. Spread it out on your tray.

*Pro tip: Crumple your rolling paper into a ball before you crease it. Trust us, it’s a game-changer for beginners!

Be sure to leave room at the end for your crutch and to make sure your joint is fat and happy.

Step 3: Ready, Set, Fill!

Pour your ground flower onto the creased rolling paper. Spread it from end to end like a little green carpet. Remember to leave some breathing room at the ends – nobody likes spillage.

Place your crutch and form your J.

Step 4: Form your J

Place your crutch on one end and gently lift your soon-to-be joint with the glued side furthest away from you. Roll the paper between your fingers, gently pressing it into that iconic shape.

And remember, practice makes perfect, so don’t be afraid to give it another shot if it doesn’t work out the first time.

Tuck it carefully and use even pressure.

Step 5: Tuck it, Lick it, Close it

Tuck the unglued side of the paper into the crease between the ground flower and the paper with your thumbs and roll the paper around it, like wrapping a burrito. Lick the glued edge lightly – too much kissing juice, and it’s not a joint, it’s a swamp!

Gently press it closed.

Step 6: Twist, Snip, and Celebrate!

If you’ve got some extra space, stuff a little more flower into the tip and use a packing tool to press it down. You can also give the crutch a little nudge to pack it down a bit.

Twist the end closed and snip off any excess paper. Now, for the moment we’ve all been waiting for…

*Pro tip: Don’t stuff the flower like a Thanksgiving turkey! Overpacking your joint is a no-go, otherwise, it won’t burn properly, or even worse – it won’t light at all!

Sharing is caring!

Step 7: Puff, Puff, Pass

Now that you know how to roll a joint, remember: weed is always more fun when you share the love. So go ahead, pass around your masterpiece, and become the legend you were born to be!

Stay high, friends, and happy rolling!

General Cannabis FAQ

Cannabis, often referred to as marijuana, is a plant that has been used for thousands of years for various purposes, including medicine, textiles, and recreation. The plant contains compounds known as cannabinoids, with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) being the most well-known. THC is primarily responsible for the plant’s psychoactive effects, while CBD is recognized for its potential therapeutic benefits without causing a “high.”

Many countries and U.S. states have decriminalized or legalized the use of marijuana for medical use, recreational, or both. The legal status changes frequently as legislation evolves.

In the U.S., states vote to regulate marijuana use on an individual basis. While it remains illegal at the federal level, numerous states have legalized it for medicinal and/or recreational use.

The following states have legalized medical, recreational, or both:

  • Alaska – Medical
  • Arizona – Legal
  • Arkansas – Medical

Outside of the U.S., countries like The Netherlands, Canada, and, more recently, Thailand have legalized cannabis on a national level.

Always check local laws and regulations in your specific location.

In states where marijuana has been legalized, you can purchase products at licensed dispensaries. Revolution products are available at Enlightened, Revolution, and partner dispensaries in Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, and Maryland. Find a dispensary near you.

Keep in mind that dispensaries may cater to medical patients, recreational consumers, or both, depending on local laws.

Always ensure that you are buying from a reputable and licensed establishment to guarantee product quality and safety.

The effects of cannabis vary widely depending on the strain, dosage, method of consumption, an individual’s endocannabinoid system, and more.

Some commonly reported effects include:

Psychoactive Effects: Euphoria, mood elevation, cerebral stimulation, stress relief, calming effects, and relaxation.

Physical Effects: Pain relief, body buzz, anti-inflammation, anti-nausea, energy boost or sedation, and appetite stimulation

*Medical Benefits: Cannabis is believed to have a range of therapeutic effects and alleviation of symptoms related to conditions like epilepsy, PTSD, and more.

*Marijuana is not approved by the FDA to treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

The primary difference lies in their intended use:

Medical Cannabis: Used as a treatment and alleviation of symptoms for specific health conditions. Medical strains might be cultivated and processed to have higher CBD content or other therapeutic compounds. Medical cannabis requires a physician who usually prescribes or recommends it as a treatment option.

Recreational Cannabis: Used without a medical justification but for personal enjoyment and fulfillment.

The process varies from state to state but typically involves the following steps:

Doctor’s Recommendation: Schedule an appointment with a physician who is authorized to recommend medical marijuana. Discuss your health conditions and reasons for seeking cannabis as a treatment.

Application: Once you have a doctor’s recommendation, you’ll usually need to apply for a medical marijuana card through a designated state or country agency.

Proof & Identification: Provide necessary identification and proof of residency as required by your jurisdiction.

Fee Payment: Most jurisdictions require a fee for the application and issuance of a medical marijuana card.

Card Issuance: Once approved, you will receive your medical marijuana card, allowing you to purchase cannabis at designated medical dispensaries.
