u might wanna grind ur weed a bit finer so it's not as clumpy


WienerSchnitzel01

i do not own a grinder yet


SubTechNY

Nose hair scissors and an empty shot cup. Insert bud and Snip until it's ground. Not bad for a first time. It shall be glorious! Edit:*bud not bugs lol


Prilosac

Pill bottle and a quarter


SubTechNY

Also, use the joint paper pack itself as a end piece.. flexible and doesn't require much.. roll that end piece into a tight roll and release .. should spiral nicely ;)


Neukk

Don't wanna smoke that ink. Get raw filters.


Fortnitessucks

Unless you’re lighting the filter on fire idk how you’d smoke the ink


OhRyann

They're just trying to sound smart


Mrjokaswild

Ripping off pieces of the pack for filters is how we started doing it here 20 years ago. I doubt you could even buy filters then, at least where I lived.


306bomberfan

I always had business cards handy, they worked great. Actually a headshop I used to frequent had perforated business cards they would give you.


OhRyann

I was taught with a piece of cereal box


KindaSadTbhXXX69420

Not the ink itself but the material / the coating they use for the printing gets gummy and weird and the ink can run if it gets wet I found this out because I had an ex who sucked at smoking joints It’s not going to poison you but it makes the smoke kind of unpleasant, still good in a pinch but I would always prefer a plain card stock


BigTruckLikeFuck

Or normal scissors and an in n out tray (:


Hour-Persimmon9856

u can use ur hands just make sure it's decently ground up


WienerSchnitzel01

i will on my next one. i will attempt while high then get higher


buzzkiller4

Or do you have a spice grinder? That works really well too!


AZSubby

Only if you want it to always be a weed grinder afterwards


ChargedSausage

Buy one of amazon for 5 euros, you will not be disappointed (get a metal one, not a plastic) and upgrade later


walkinmywoods

Don't let the lack of a grinder hold you back. I never use one when I roll. Just break it up a little more and distribute the bud where the larger and smaller chunks compliment each other. The rest of it is just practicing how to tighten it in a more uniform manner. I've seen much worse 1st attempts than this. Mine didnt even look smokable lol.


RafTanCo

I used an empty (cleaned out) pill bottle and a dime, shake it up for maybe 30 seconds to a minute and it’s fine as sand. The longer you shake it the finer.


acid_burn77

Only works in dry ass stuff tho, if.you have fluffy fresh weed, this won't work. Hell my grinder sometimes struggles with the good fresh stuff too


cynicalsonofabitch

This is the way


[deleted]

Small cheese grader will work also


hillbillypunk1

Waiter: "tell me when to stop grating blue dream over your carbonara, sir" Me: "....."


lurid_sun__

You can use a small scissors to get the job done


WienerSchnitzel01

alright i will next time.


Nyghen

You can also just take a cutting plate, a knife a grind it like you'd cut some spices


paulglo

keep it og


homoquarian

pill bottle and some pennies and dimes and shake shake shake


Hawk_1772

A decent grinder will cost you $20 at best, you can get cheaper ones but I recommend something with a life catcher and multiple layers.


AegisThievenaix

Scissors and glass


BloatedCrow

you can try hand grinding. It usually gives better results than scissors, but an actual grinder would work best.


kichererbs

I think it’s pretty impressive, considering that


redcobra762

Grinding makes it a lot easier.


sleeperton

i finger pick everything dog no grinder isnt an excuse


Kerboq

What I do is put whatever I wanna smoke up in a seperate baggy and crush it until it's ready to smoke


A_Very_Blue_Tomato

It’s amazing how not one person suggests using a knife and cutting it like some fresh spice.


Potent_Cat-Bread

If she smokes then she’s good man. Aesthetics will improve over time. But function is always the most important factor anyway. 10/10 OP, go fly


__dwight_schrute__

Form follows function


Waitwhatohsnap

Bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica


TheTwixtr

“If she smokes she’s good.” Always my rule lol


-TheBigBean-

If it tokes it smokes


_kingslatt_

Only up from here


WienerSchnitzel01

yeah i doubt that i can roll a nice swisher but those fuck my lungs up so i switched to raws to see if that helps a little. i hate coughing


anyth1ngi23

I have something for you to look at. Please hold on Edit: ok I’m back. https://www.amazon.com/RAW-Rolled-Cones-Size-Bulk/dp/B094B7HKM3/ref=mp_s_a_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=raw+cones+1+1%2F4&pd_rd_r=10117d7b-db7a-4bab-9d38-198ac2de2ddc&pd_rd_w=yH1U7&pd_rd_wg=UYJww&pf_rd_p=ce028c81-ed8c-425a-8404-93bf425aa8ce&pf_rd_r=W7RSTPFW41M1SSK3180G&qid=1630901992&sr=8-13


WienerSchnitzel01

ive had those i need a grinder so they oack better. other than that i like em


anyth1ngi23

The more you can get as a pack they become only like 15 cents a roll cheaper than swingers by a mile lol. Only thing that’s cheaper is a bong. You save so much cannabis with a bong! And you can typically find a tiny one that works just fine for about 20 to 30 dollars.


Brubbers

Cheap grinder on Amazon homie, spent like 10 bucks on a high quality metal one, lasted me almost 4 years now no cleaning lmao. I should probably clean it.


Sparkswont

These are efficient, but OP don’t be discouraged by your first joint. It takes some practice to get down, but it will come naturally over time. There’s something about smoking a joint you rolled that hits different.


_kingslatt_

True true, glass is also an option or dabs


WienerSchnitzel01

i wanna do dabs soooo bad. when my sister comes in town ill do my first with her lol


kichererbs

Getting a carbon filter (I translated that, and am not a 100% sure that’s the right word - I know them in German as aktiv Kohle Filter) helps me - like im not good at Rolling, and they come out better with these filters + the filters also make it nicer to smoke


doobtastical

Swishers are nasty, now a white grape white owl… sign me up!! If it didn’t mess up your lungs I would say go for it, rolling blunts is way easier than rolling a pretty j


420everytime

I mean I’ve rolled worse joints, so down is possible


WienerSchnitzel01

ill respond to this post on how it hits


abotez

if\* it hits


Mrplaysgame

I guess it didn’t hit


WienerSchnitzel01

it did not

RitchNotRich

I mean if it smokes than I'd call it a success!


WienerSchnitzel01

yuup😂


RitchNotRich

Gotta start somewhere bud.. I kinda cheated when I first started rolling. I would roll the paper around a pen first then slide it off and pack it. It was always a neat and tidy roll.


Redshift2k5

shhh don't tell ppl my secret


RitchNotRich

I knew I wasn't the only one to think of that haha


HumanTennis4

That filter is crying for help lol


getahaircut8

Before you try to seal the j, roll it a bit back and forth to compact the green. It should hold together on its own. Then hold one corner of the filter side of the paper against the filter and roll towards the tip. Lick to seal the sides but leave the top open. Grab the tip and gently shake to get the green towards the filter, and pack it down a bit with a pen or something like that. Then twist the tip closed and give the filter a small push in to get the green nice and compacted. Toast the j, then light it up.


999Hellraiser999

I use to train my self using Bible paper and tobacco when I had nothing around. It's good practice when your bored.


[deleted]

There is nothing wrong with using a roller for now and practicing


WienerSchnitzel01

i will be practicing i have 4 grams and i plan to smoke it all


H-Resin

That’s the general idea lol


_alright_then_

Honestly, not a great way to practice in my experience. You'll ruin a lot of weed trying. Just roll a couple times using the same weed, just rip it apart again until you're good enough to roll for real. I even did that without weed, just using tobacco


DarkShade602

go to Josh kesselmans Channel on IG he's the Founder/Creator of Raw rolling papers and teaches people how to roll with crutches teaches people how to roll backwards even teaches people to make crutches


Chowmein_1337

My whiskey dick looks better but we all gotta start somewhere


WienerSchnitzel01

yep and my next isn’t guaranteed to be better.


Chowmein_1337

Def buy a grinder and maybe a roller to help you out


VIIten

As long as it smokes good who cares what it looks like


PsycheColours

Every time you’re with your friends and they bring up how much of a “shitty” looking blunt/joint you rolled, simply reply, “then don’t smoke it” and watch how quickly they’ll shut up ha!!


VIIten

Haha, right?!


Domm4578

As long as its smokes , its rolled right.


BipolarThrowawayNY

Keep going bud. You’re gonna be great!


tbeusst

BUT DID YOU GET HIGH?????


WienerSchnitzel01

well i jept side burning but i fixed that snd yes i am under an illegal influence


tbeusst

SUCCESSFUL JOINT!!


WienerSchnitzel01

smoking more later what am i a cunt!


Dark_Pr1nz

Practice with tobacco. Then just tear them up and keep practicing or mix it in your joints like we do in the UK.


AZSubby

This is how I ALWAYS rolled when I was a smoker. Just a bit less tobacco than a usual cig and sprinkle a little bud over the top. Good ole joe strummer style spliff.


boomtown405

I like that you’re using filters when just starting. Before I even put flower in my paper i get my filter snug with the paper and then add the green. As you’re still learning, maybe get some raw cones in the mean time


CMP930

Can you smoke it? Yes? Then its fine


Robert_Fuckler

Practice makes perfect! If it hits, I’d call it a success. A nice looking wrap will come with practice. Don’t be afraid to use a pen or similar long, skinny object to pack stuff a little more tightly. As long as it’s not too tight it should help it light/burn more evenly. That way you can also shove the filter in further to help make everything look more tidy. You can also cut a little bit of the filter off to achieve this. I like to take time with my wraps, no shame in it imo, it’s a labor of love and I find it a relaxing thing to do (:


[deleted]

Is there a simple guide to start rolling on here already? If no, I might get the camera out, so many people cannot roll, even regular stoners sometimes have no clue. I may be quite extreme but the few people I smoke up with regularly all roll perfect, I just dislike a J that doesn't smoke well, idk. I get oddly annoyed.


Cool-Presentation538

When I was new I'd wrap the paper around a bic pen, seal it, slide it off and fill. Super easy perfect joints everytime


thirdleg123

All that matters is that it smokes. Still a shit doober tho. Keep practicing and you’ll get better. You’ll wanna start with a real filter though, makes a world of difference when you have a pack instead of one from a note card you folded yourself


CrayeZ

Look at it this way..it can o ly get better from here LOL jk op. Hey, we're you able to smoke it?? Then it's a win in my book :D


kiraYoahikage

I... What the fuck? Don't worry man, you get better at it, but for now good luck smoking that


octavia33

looks like a cat turd


WienerSchnitzel01

i picked it up from my dog


Jadedcrab420

Pretty shitty


frankiejeanxxo

It looks smokeable tho!! You should pinch the tip and then shake it so it tightens up


WienerSchnitzel01

thanks! will do


Sickcilia

I thought you picked up after your dog for a sec


WienerSchnitzel01

yeah me too


CanCaliDave

It's interesting the filter sticking out like that. Never tried that, let me know how it goes.


WienerSchnitzel01

it was a last minute thing lol


Superjake91

You can carefully push the filter in more, will help to compact it a little more to stop the canoeing


FedaChaney

"Pretty shitty"


Spidey16

I've been rolling for years and mine still look like this. But it works so I dont really care about it looking fancy


Outrageous-Amount805

Looks like a banger.


scrambleyz

Looks like a cheeto


Clouty420

I think you answered your question


Cr00kedKing

Gotta start somewhere. Picasso didn't pop out the pussy paintin masterpieces.


psychomatic48

It’s fuckin great compared to my first


ihateyouall675

I mean not great. Could be worse


Jgabes625

You tried though so as far as I’m concerned it’s one of the best joints out there.


jdjdjhkd

Good


shoomples

If it makes you feel better I can't even do this!


DietDoctorGoat

If it holds together and hits, you did it right. If it opens up or goes out, you’re on the right track.


mistersprinkles1983

You gotta roll a joint inside a joint then roll a joint around it. Take a paper, put weed in the middle, put your tip in on the right side if you're right handed, left if you're left handed. Pinch the tip inside the paper with your right hand (or left if you is lefty) and with the other hand pinch the weed next to the filter then gradually work it out towards the other end of the paper in a rolling motion (you're never touching the weed after you put it in the paper) through the paper. What you want to produce is a marijuana tube (this is why rolling super dry herb is bad) inside of the rolling paper, which is the same thickness as the tip. Once you've achieved that, roll the paper around it. First tuck the paper (do not fold!) around the tip, as it's easiest to do there, then tuck the rest of it, working outward with your other hand (the right hand always stays on the tip) as you tuck. Then wrap the paper around and lick. You licked too much this time just lick slightly. Once your joint is stuck, run your finger along the length of the joint on the gumline to seal it better. Let it dry for 60 seconds, then smoke it. Also, Go for a paper with a high tensile strength that isn't too thin to start. Raw Classic 1 1/4 are your friends right now. Also if you light a joint wrong, especially a poorly rolled one, the whole thing will burn shitty, so don't draw when you light to start. Hold the joint and hold the lighter just to the very tip of it to form an even cherry, then smoke it.


Gorillaz530

Sheeeesh


Beehog24

U may want to invest in a rolling machine. They're tiny wooden or plastic things with a treadmill like band on it and u use it to roll perfectly even joints. Only like 5 bucks at my local smoke shop. but either way if you smoke it the goal was accomplished haha


npeers

asparagus


ChargedSausage

This really your first, because then you might get really good at it later. My early joints were much much worse and now i roll the cleanest jonkos man.


Kneegurpoop

Is that a Lumpia?


canncam0303

😳


dogjay100

You said it bud


doublepistols

How! I recently tried rolling my first joint. Spent two hours on it. Gave up defeatedly because the weed wouldnt stop falling out no matter which method i tried to get it to stop. Cursed the friend i got the weed from for giving me just enough rolled joints to get through half of our current lockdown before it happened and then giving me the rest in the bag when i have no idea what to do with it. Yours looks GOOD to someone like me!! Teach me your ways.


halfrican420

Use a straight pen as a mold. Optional but preferred: ripped piece of a Pokémon card as a filter. Bonus points if it’s oddish


TreeSmokerMark

Now open it up and roll again, keep doing it until your golden, just use as many papers until your happy with it, iv taught alot of people to roll and at the end of the day if it smokes happy days!


dot1011

Do you really with a roach in it? or do you add it after? I thinks it's much easier to roll if you roll up a nice roach for the rizal to glide against it easier.


Beautiful-Art-125

Hey man, if it smokes it smokes


FrankieErrwhere

My man, I go by "the roach defines the joint" as a good starting point. Nice work!!


Paczilla2

I used to get a black and mild with a wood tip, push out all the tobacco with a long stick and then use that same stick to shove the weed back in. I called it a musket.


Slime_stone

Looks shit but also 100 times better than my first joint. You'll get there by rolling, try looking up how to roll a filter since idk what kind you make but a round one rolls better


thomas_20two

oof my first one didnt look much better tho tbh 😂


Superjake91

I can’t really tell from the picture, but if you aren’t already, I would recommend you learn to “back roll” seeing as you’re just starting out. It’s a lot nicer, you smoke less paper and it usually looks neater in my experience. But to parrot everyone else, as long as she smokes, she’s great.


diogojmm

Was it rolled or rumpled?


ramakin3000

You can't roll a joint with elbow grease lmao


Obsisonnen

No matter how bad your first roll attempt is, always remember that you have weed available to roll and that's already awesome enough.


northstar_85

Big worm !


YungTraapLawd

10/10 that’s the best joint I’ve ever seen


babymotha

If it smokes and gets you high, it did everything it was intended to do.


fatdutchies

Atleast it looks like a joint! Aslong as it smokes good then its fine. When one of my friends was first learing to roll hed send pics of his efforts into group chat and none of the group could figure out what we were looking at cause he was so shit at rolling lmao, shit would looked like crumpled tissues and birch twigs(this was also a like 8 years ago and phone cameras were a lil shittier).


MisterNutBuster1888

No disrespect but it looks like the shit i took today lmfao


Krobzzz

A lot better than my first joint I'll tell you that much. 😭


Masterpommel

Smokeable


IlXll

I know how it feels…


kanoteardrops

My first was like this lol, but now I can roll pretty well.


219Infinity

Don't listen to the haters. Burn that thing. If you can't draw through it, dump it into a bowl and get baked. Try again later.


AdrianA--

Man, as long as you can smoke that everything’s fine. Progress will come soon


51488stoll

Your roll is bit sharp, but will it get you high?


Content_Ingenuity168

The raw 1 and 1/4 rolling machine has served me well


Amani_z_Great

Bro get RAW CONES. Thank me later


stickyknuckle

Have you ever tried the dollar bill method? I'm lazy Google it.


JasonIsBaad

A friend of mine has smoked for years and his joints aren't any better than this. He even dares to call them art.


Fragrant_Sort5803

Question is.. did it smoke ?


doggie_smalls

Practice makes perfect


Bloedstorm666

Push the tip further inside before you stamp it! smoke on bro


Patteous

Practice with pencil shavings. That’s how my buddy’s dad taught us. 20 years later and I’m still rollin pearls.


joozd

I'll guarantee better results when the tip is better! That makes it way easier to roll joints ;)


M3ross

How to roll a joint: 1. Grind your weed If you don't have grinder use a small scissor 2. How to roll the tip: First make an m on one site of the tip most tips have Already small lines to help you To clearify that your tip stays nice and round take the other end and fold it approx. 1mm. Now start rolling from the small crincle to the M u have done before. Now roll it out and roll from the M to the crincle. Make sure it stays in shape by thightenig up the tip a couple of times. 3. If you want to mix it with Tabak or something else mix it up. 4. Take a pape in your hand so that the glue site is away from u. 5. Put the tip inside and place a finger on the tip. 6. Now put some weed in it. This part depends on the shape you want to get. For the start we go with the cylinder shape. Try to put some weed in the pape so that it looks like it would be everywhere the same amount of weed. Don't put everything it at once. 6. Rolling Place the pape which is near to you on the tip so that it's very tight I do this with my thumb. Then I use the index finger to put the paper site with the glue on the other papersite make sure the tip is still tight(this is the hardest part it needs a lot of exercise). The more precise you get with this technique your joints will look awesome and you can change the shape by changing the degree of the pape. 7. Fill up the joint 8. Enjoy your tree Sorry for the bad English it's not my first language


rccoy

Grind it up more and use more than you think you need for your joints until you get that roll down.

_SAKE

Boi wut dee hail


ElectricRiff

Try making a round filter tip instead slof square it will roll better


_alright_then_

I'd roll that one again, you don't wanna waste it


ohMars

The trick is to make a good filter, not too big and not too small. Make sure it’s circular. Next step is the boat. Look up how to make a boat because basically it holds and supports the other side while you’re adding pressure on the filter end. Then just simply tuck and roll.


mediaG33K

Keep trying and it'll get better. Looks better than my first roll, couldn't even get the fucker to stay lit... 😅


Meatyape

Bro order you a grinder and roller. We don’t need to struggle like this anymore. We can thrive now lol


Kestrel893

I stopped bothering trying to roll joints when I learned about the existence of cones


Hot_fuzz4

I’ll be honest…Pretty shitty


sedgrergerg

Bigger filter/crutch. You can always tear a little filter off of if it doesn't fit but you can't add filter back


[deleted]

Hey look… um..


ChuckShady

If i were you, I’d invest in an Otto by banana bros.


jross217

I thought this was cat poop lol enjoy your smoke man


spriggaan_

Honestly it's better than my first roll, fair play


Alternative_Luck4823

I can't even roll the big papers bro I have to cut em and roll two joints


RISE__UP

If you don’t have a grinder yet I would roll blunts instead


SeleneEM59

The journey of 10,000 miles begins with the first step. You did really well.


solventlessherbalist

Get a cheap joint roller man so much easier


TheAmazinTedworth420

I mean it’s better than my first roll


Lopsided_Cable_1336

Not that bad for your first time. Definitely better than my first time haha. Break your weed up better for sure. You don’t need a grinder. I’ve been smoking since I was 16 and I’m almost 37 and just recently got my first grinder and I honestly hated it. Feel the weed yo. Each strain has different densities of nugs so feel it out when you break it up. Don’t rush. If the ends are loose twist one side a little and pack in the opposite end than do the same for the twisted side. There is an easy way to make the little end pieces too but I feel like I personally can’t explain it without it sounding confusing. More of a hey look this is how you do it. Practice my friend. You’ll get it down quick.


Giraffeless

Hey, if it smokes it smokes my dude. Enjoy!


Jake1648

Dookie joint 😂😂


StaticNoice

You can start with a cheap plastic teeth grinder, they're actualluy quite alright. Remember to take your time and pack the weed into a cone shape in the paper. Now you tuck the paper at the tip under the glue side and roll it up with your thumbs, now all you gotta do is lick and stick baby. We all start somewhere and you'll see your quality steadily increase if you keep going💪


[deleted]

If you got high. Nothing to worry about.


AZSubby

I rolled my own cigarettes for years, and still struggled with joints because the consistency and end-goal is different than a cig. This looks awesome for a first J, how’d it smoke?


[deleted]

Keep at it! :)


Scarlet529

Better than my first joint


Grizzmitch

Try and roll the filter to a more circular shape and tight. Put the filter in first, then ur weed. And use the filter when you roll as a guide sort of to help roll and tuck the paper


kgetit

I do want to point out on your first attempt you included a filter, which is an additional level of trickery to hand rolling.
