Back to Basics: 3 Tips for Rolling the Best Joint Ever
While you can buy a joint from your local dispensary, there is nothing better than making your own one. Here’s what you need for a basic spliff:
- Dried cannabis
- A roach or filter
- Paper and glue
Making a basic blunt is fairly straightforward. You simply need to glue two pieces of paper together, place your dried marijuana, place the filter at the bottom part, then roll.
However, if you want to make the best joint you have ever smoked, then make sure to follow these tips:
- Pick the Right Cannabis Strainsn
The most important ingredient of a spliff is your dried cannabis. The type of strain you choose can dictate how much cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) you will be consuming. It can also greatly affect your experience as different cannabis strains have different aromas and tastes.
So, make sure that you pick the right strain for your needs and preferences. If you are looking for a brain high with a funky flavour, then go for Skunk Haze. Those wanting a fruity taste and smell can use Lemon OG for a body high.
- Incorporate Other Herbs
While cannabis by itself is good enough, you might want to enhance your experience using other herbs. Damiana is known for its aphrodisiac effect while holy basil or tulsi is a great way to add more medical benefits to your blunt. For improved flavour, you can add peppermint, chamomile and other tea leaves. Just mix in these herbs into your ground cannabis leaves and you are good to go.
- Do Not Roll Too Tight or Loose
If you think that you can roll your joint however you want, then you are wrong. The tightness or looseness of your roll can greatly affect your experience. Overly tight rolls can give you a difficult time inhaling the blunt, while overly loose ones can give you less smoke and more air. It can also cause the dried herbs to burn out more quickly. To make sure that you get the right air to smoke ratio, then make sure to give the joint the right heft, without packing it too tight.
Nothing beats having the first-hand experience when it comes to something you love and rolling a joint is no exception. By making your own one, you can customize it to your heart’s desire, ensuring that you have the best experience ever.
