There are many ways to roll a joint, but the most common method is to start with a marijuana cigarette or “joint.” These days, you can also buy pre-rolled joints, which make the process much easier. But if you’re going to roll your own joint, here’s what you need to know:

Time needed: 2 minutes

Rolling instructions

  1. Procure your pot

    First, you’ll need some marijuana. You can either grow your own cannabis or buy it from a dispensary. If you’re buying it, be sure to get the right strain for your needs. Indica strains are better for relaxation, while Sativa strains are more uplifting and energizing

  2. Grind

    Once you have your marijuana, grind it up into small pieces using a grinder or your fingers. The finer the marijuana is ground, the better it will burn

  3. Setup

    Next, take a rolling paper and place a small amount of marijuana in the center. Start rolling the paper back and forth between your fingers until it forms a tight cylinder

  4. Wet gummed edge

    Once the joint is rolled, lick the adhesive strip on the edge of the paper and seal it shut. Then, twist the ends of the joint to make sure it’s tightly sealed

  5. Toke it

    Now you’re ready to enjoy your joint! Light it up and take a few puffs. You can inhale as deeply as you like, but be careful not to overdo it—marijuana can be potent stuff. Enjoy your high and relax!

I have been a pot smoker for 44 years, and have some experience with growing. I love marijuana and feel blessed to live in a state where it is legal (Illinois). It is also legal to grow here as long as you have a medical card
