How to roll a cross joint
Discover the art of rolling a cross joint with our step-by-step guide, perfecting this iconic cannabis rolling technique.
Step 1: Gather your materials
Before learning how to roll a cross joint, you will need a few essential materials:
- two regular rolling papers;
- one longer rolling paper (such as a king-size or extended rolling paper);
- a weed grinder;
- a cannabis strain of your choice, and;
- a thin, cylindrical object like a pen or a chopstick.
Ensure that your rolling papers are in good condition and your cannabis is finely ground for optimal rolling.
Step 2: Roll the base joint
To begin, roll the base joint, which will serve as the foundation for the cross joint. Take one of the regular rolling papers and place it on a flat surface, holding it with the adhesive side facing up. From your weed stash box, distribute a generous amount of ground cannabis along the length of the paper, ensuring an even distribution. Gently shape the cannabis into a cylindrical form and begin rolling the joint, tucking in the bottom edge and carefully rolling it upwards. Lick the adhesive strip, seal the joint, and set it aside.
Step 3: Create the crosspiece
Using the longer rolling paper, form the crosspiece that will intersect with the base joint. Take the paper and fold it in half lengthwise, creating a crease. Open the paper and place your thin, cylindrical object (pen or chopstick) along the crease. Roll the paper around the object, creating a hollow tube shape. Remove the object, leaving the hollow tube intact. This will be the crosspiece that connects the two joints.
Step 4: Attach the crosspiece
Take the crosspiece and slide one end into the base joint, making sure it fits snugly. Carefully align the other end of the crosspiece with the base joint, creating a perpendicular angle. The crosspiece should rest in the center of the base joint, forming a “T” shape. Ensure that the connection between the crosspiece and the base joint is secure but not too tight to impede airflow.
Step 5: Roll the top joint
Now it’s time to roll the top joint, which will complete the cross joint structure. Place the remaining regular rolling paper on a flat surface, with the adhesive side facing up. Distribute ground cannabis along the length of the paper and shape it into a cylindrical form. Position the top joint over the crosspiece, making sure it aligns with the base joint and rests securely. Carefully roll the top joint, tucking in the bottom edge and sealing it with a lick on the adhesive strip. At this point, you are ready to light up your joint.
