Different Styles of Joints Guide

Published April 19, 2022

Hello fellow enthusiasts!

Once someone becomes a master at rolling joints, the same old same old gets, well…old.

Not anymore.

Keep reading to learn different styles of joint rolling to switch up your hemp game today.

We will be focusing on these techniques:

  • The shotgun joint
  • The cross joint
  • The braided joint
  • Final thoughts

Gather your joint supplies, because it’s time to get rolling! 

Shotgun Joint

If you are fortunate enough to have a surplus of Delta-8 flower, a shotgun joint will be adventurous to say the least. 

Before rolling, make sure you have extra rolling paper, filter papers, and an eighth of hemp flower. 

Step 1: Stick two papers together

This joint style requires a large amount of Delta-8 flower, so you’re going to combine two pieces of rolling paper.

Lick the sticky side on one of the rolling papers and attach it to the other paper.

Step 2: Fill It and Roll

The rest of this tutorial is the same as rolling any joint. Fill the paper and roll it as tight as you can. Don’t worry if it isn’t as perfect as your normal rolls. Just do your best, and restart if needed.  

The Cross Joint

The Cross Joint

A true enthusiast would know this joint just by the name. And if you’re willing to put in the work, everyone around you will know too!

Some supplies you will need:

  • Grinder hemp flower
  • Large rolling paper
  • Small rolling paper
  • Filter
  • Needle or pin
  • Scissors

Step 1: Roll the joints

First thing you need to do is roll a large, thick joint with a filter.

Keep in mind—the thicker, the better. Although it’s a joint, it should resemble the shape of a blunt. Once you have that rolled, roll a small, narrow joint. 

Step 2: Poke A Hole

Take the large joint and use the needle to gently make a hole large enough to fit the small joint.

Then make another hole in the middle of the small joint. This hole will allow the air to pass through the large joint, so it’s important not to forget this part.

NOTE: Be careful while poking the holes. If you rush it, it could risk making too large of an incision, causing you to have to roll another large joint.

Step 3: Insert the Small Joint Through the Large Joint

After the joints are made, it’s time to assemble it. Carefully move the small joint through the large joint.

Do not force it. If it doesn’t seem to fit, make a large hole.

Step 4: The Final Touch

Take leftover rolling paper and cut off the sticky part. Lick the pieces and wrap them around the two joints to prevent air from passing through.

The Braided Joint

Before you skip over this joint style, we swear, you don’t need to have the skill of braiding.

For this roll, you’ll need:

  • Ground Delta-8 flower
  • Rolling paper
  • Filter
  • Scissors

Step 1: Roll Three Joints

Roll three individual joints as you usually do. But this time, make it double in length by using two rolling papers in each joint. This will make it long enough to braid.

NOTE: Leave half-inch of paper at the end of each one, so we can tie it together at the end of the braid.

Step 2: Cut the Paper and Wrap

Take the rolling paper and cut the sticky strip from it.

Take the joints with two facing up and one underneath it (like a triangle), and wrap it with the sticky strip of cut-up rolling paper. 

Step 3: Time to Braid

If you know how to braid, this next step could be done with your eyes closed.

But if you don’t, we got you covered.

With the joints in your hand, mentally note that the farthest one to the right is the #1 joint. The middle joint is #2. And the left joint is #3.

Follow this pattern:

  • Cross joint #1 over joint #2
  • Cross joint #3 over joint #1
  • Cross joint #2 over joint #3

Repeat this sequence until your joint is braided.

Step 3: Combine the Ends

The hard part is done.

Now, all you need to do is bind the end of the joints.

Once it has been braided, take the three joints' tips and twist it until it’s sealed.

Final Thoughts

This guide will become a way to impress all of your friends as rolling-savvy individuals. And although it may take a fail or two until you get it down, it will easily be the best-looking joint in the room. So next time you have a gathering, or if you’re looking to elevate your rolling skills, use these techniques to bring you to the next level.
