You probably came here wondering how to roll a plumber’s joint and why you should bother. If you were looking for something to hold two pipes together, you came to the wrong place. We’re here to teach you a new way to roll your weed.
This technique isn’t too complex. If you already know how to roll a joint you’ve got all the preparation and experience you need to roll a plumber’s joint.
Why Roll A Plumber’s Joint?
Why roll a plumber’s joint you ask? The benefit is there is much more airflow, and it leaves no gaps between the weed and the paper. As a result, you get a smooth even smoke with every pull. No canoeing unless you’re smoking it in a wind tunnel.
Before You Get Rolling
Before we get into how to roll a plumber’s joint, there are a few things to gather. You need cannabis and a bamboo skewer. You will use this for the airflow hole. Papers, tips, and a grinder are the remaining materials you will need.
Step 1: Grind Your Weed
The first step is to grind your weed. Breaking it up by hand won’t do for a plumber’s joint. You want a nice even consistency that will easily mold around a bamboo stick.
The best way to get the consistency you’re looking for is to use a grinder. Otherwise, you won’t get the even burn plumber’s joints are known for.
Step 2: Skewer Your Filter Tip
Roll a filter tip and put the wooden skewer through it like it’s shrimp on the barbie. You can then place the filter tip the same way you would in a normal joint. The skewer should be going all the way through the joint and out the end.
Step 3: Insert Weed And Roll
Make like Salt Bae and sprinkle weed on top of the skewer you’ve got going through your joint. Ground buds should be under the skewer and around it as you roll.
Roll your joint around the skewer. It should make it easier to get the weed tightly up against the paper, so there are no gaps that will cause uneven burning. Tuck, roll, and seal it like any other joint.
Step 4: Remove The Skewer
You’re almost done. Remove the stick but don’t pull it out the front of your joint because sticky weed may come falling out with it.
Pull it out of the end with the filter. This will keep things neat. You should be able to see through the entire joint if you look through the small hole. If you can, your joint is ready to smoke.
Final Hit: How To Roll A Plumber’s Joint
If you followed the above steps, you now know how to roll a plumber’s joint. It may look hard to accomplish, but this is one of the easiest ways to roll a joint.
Once you see how smooth they smoke, you’ll be hooked. In fact, you may love it so much that a bamboo skewer may become a regular part of your smoking gear.
