As we already mentioned your joint may be hard to light depending on your weed and how you roll. You must take into consideration if your weed is too wet or too dry. Also if you roll a joint too tight or too loose. After gathering your supplies and grinding you must prepare your rolling paper, and you are ready to roll. ¿What is the easiest way to roll? Take your rolling paper and place it between your fingers, the gummed edge should be facing up, away from you. Insert your filter into one end of the rolling paper before proceeding.
Then, fill the paper, place the cannabis in the center of the rolling paper, and make sure not to overfill the paper. Once you have done this, use your fingers to gently roll the cannabis into a cylindrical shape, with the paper on the bottom and the gummed edge on the top.
Then, tuck the paper, using your thumbs and index fingers, and tuck the bottom edge of the paper up and over the cannabis, while at the same time rolling the paper between your fingers. Once the paper has been tucked, lick the gummed edge of the paper and stick it to the rest of the paper. Twist the excess paper at the end of the joint.
Now you can light your joint. Take the tip of the joint with your teeth, bite it, twist the tip, and take it away. You can also burn the edge and remove the tip. Now, lighting a joint evenly is what we are looking forward to. You should avoid butane lighters, hemp wick is healthier. Before inhaling, you should just fire the edge and then inhale as you light.
