Buying a Joint Roller
There’s definitely a skill to rolling a good joint but that ultimately comes with many years of experience and smoking in most cases. Which is why these joint rolling machines have become so popular over the years. Add in medical patients that consume cannabis and may have trouble rolling a joint and you can see why the market is flourishing at the minute.
Joint Roller Build
When in the market for a new joint roller one of the most important things to look at is build quality and ease of use.
The most expensive or the joint roller with the most add-ons are not always the best in category. Sometimes this title falls to the most basic design that delivers on functionality and ease of use.
If you’re not a medical cannabis user that suffers with, as example, Osteoarthritis. Then the RAW Joint Rolling Kit may be the ideal solution. As you’ll have no problem with the manual joint roller design.
If of course, you do have the aforementioned ailment then something like an electric grinder and joint roller may be the best option, or something like the Mamba Electric Grinder/cone machine.
Joint Roller Portability
Portability should be high on the list of things to look for when purchasing a joint roller. Why you may ask? Well, put simply, the average Joe probably isn’t looking for a big electronic joint roller like the Powermatic 3 rolling machine.
They want something compact and small they can carry on the go and when the need strikes, they can whip out and roll a joint quickly without any fuss.
Big, electric, table top joint roller machines are a nice idea, and great for rolling many joints at a time but for the average user the extra expense probably puts many off the idea.
The Joint Test
Ultimately, and probably the most obvious thing you want from your joint roller is, can it roll a nice joint? Does your roller pass the joint test?
User error aside, if at the end your final joint is not at the very least “good”, or “acceptable”, then unfortunately, it’s failed the test.
If every paper gets ripped or your joint is as baggy and floppy as a wizards sleeve then again, I’d say it’s probably failed the test and you need to look elsewhere.
Types of Joint Rollers
There are different types of joint rollers available in the market, and each one has its own unique features. Some of the common types of joint rollers are:
1. Hand rollers – hand rollers are the most basic type of joint rollers and are suitable for beginners. They are small, portable, and easy to use.
2. Cone rollers – cone rollers are designed to make cone-shaped joints. They come in different sizes depending on the size of the cone you want.
3. Electric rollers – electric rollers are the most convenient type of joint rollers. They are fast and can roll joints in seconds.
4. Automatic rollers – automatic rollers are similar to electric rollers but are hand-cranked. They are portable and do not require electricity.
Benefits of Joint Rollers
1. Convenience – joint rollers make rolling joints quick and easy and save time.
2. Consistency – joint rollers ensure that each joint is of the same size and quality.
3. Efficiency – joint rollers can roll multiple joints at once, which is useful for events and parties.
4. Cost-effective – joint rollers are affordable and can save money in the long run.
How to Use a Joint Roller
Using a joint roller is easy and straightforward. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use a joint roller:
1. Grind your cannabis – use a grinder to grind your cannabis to a fine consistency.
2. Prepare the roller – open your joint roller and place your rolling paper inside.
3. Add cannabis – add your ground cannabis to the roller.
4. Roll the joint – close the roller and roll it back and forth with your fingers.
5. Seal the joint – lick the adhesive on the rolling paper and seal the joint.
There’s many options out there that fall under the joint roller category. Everything from your simple tried and tested manual joint rollers, to your newly released electric joint rollers and cone machines. As well as your multi use grinder joint rollers or all in one joint rollers.
With this in mind, it’s sometimes hard to know what to go for with so many options and so many places to buy from. Hopefully in reading today’s article we’ve given you some ideas of what to go for, and what, if anything to ultimately avoid when making that purchase.
