How to roll a cross joint in 5 easy steps

Below is how to roll a cross joint step by step. To make a cross blunt just substitute blunt wraps for the rolling papers. You’re welcome.

Step 1:

Start out by getting stoned. Then roll two joints. If you’re stoned you’ll probably have more patience. You’re gonna need that to roll a good joint if you’re just starting out. One of the joints should be larger than the other because you’re basically going to thread the smaller joint through the big one just like threading a needle. You might want to use a king size rolling paper and a 11/4 size rolling paper. Either way, we recommend using a rolling tip. Rolling tips add a bit of structural integrity to your cross joint and eliminate the need for a roach clip by allowing you to smoke your joint ’till it’s all gone.

Step 2:

Now take that paper clip or pointy object and jam a hole through the larger joint. Remember you’re making a cross not an addition symbol so aim for about one third of the way down from the top. Be gentle. You’re not impaling a vampire you’re crafting a joint. Now wiggle the paper clip around a bit to expand the hole and create a tunnel. The diameter of the tunnel needs to be about the same size as that smaller joint so it’ll fit snugly. If it’s too tight you’ll tear shit.

Step 3:

Before you thread the smaller joint through the larger one, you’ll need to make a hole in it to allow for airflow in the smaller joint. This is an important step so don’t forget. Without creating this airway your cross joint won’t burn very well at all. Don’t waste your time and your weed by forgetting.

Step 4:

Use the paper clip, nail, razor or whatever to cut a hole in the smaller joint. This is to allow air to flow when you smoke the cross joint. Now insert the smaller joint into the hole in the larger joint. Make sure the holes in the smaller joint are in line with the larger joint.

Step 5:

You’ll want to make an air-tight seal to ensure your cross joint smokes good. Grab that third rolling paper and tear of the gum strip. Moisten the strip and use it to lash around the center of the cross joint. If you can, have it overlap a bit to ensure a tight seal. Without a tight seal your cross joint won’t very well. So take your time and test the joint a bit by inhaling a few times before you light it.

Good job, dude. If you followed the directions above you now have a cross joint to fire up. Keep on reading form some tips on how to light and enjoy that shit.

Lighting a cross joint
