Safer Cannabis Use Pt2
While MDs and other health pros deride the dangers of smoking, its true that almost 50% of cannabis users use it as their preferred admin route. With that in mind there are techniques that make smoking safer, to wit: natural materials, filters and humidity control.
- Natural materials like Raw organic hemp paper with natural glue put fewer toxins in the smoking mix.
- Filter Tips also reduce particulate mater and temperature.
- Boveda humidity control keeps herb fresh so that it smolders correctly at lower temperatures
In my 50+ years a cannabis user I’ve rolled at least 50 joints (3/day X 20k days). I’ve mainly smoked hand rolled joints. Below please find my current methods
Some years back a Cannabis tech writer with limited real world experience asked “Teach me how to roll”. Realizing this task was not a simple one to master, I politely declined. Rolling is a smoker’s handicraft that not everyone takes the time to perfect
As young stoners with plenty of ego, my friends and I took pride when our Js burned evenly and held together during a group seesh
So now I’ve decided to share my experiences with the #CannabisCommunity
At the right we see our primary tools
- Rolling tray
- Papers (We prefer Raw 1.25)
- Herb in baggie w Boveda humidity control
This post will have a companion video to be viewed as a workshop for practice
- Weigh a standard size for joint
.4 gm = mini
.5 gm = reg
.6 gm = lg
Glue 2 sheets 1.25 papers end to end
Fold bottom paper 1/3
Trim twigs (optional)
Grind buds until smooth
Add ground herb to papers
Even out the load
Insert tip 3/4 into left end
Begin 1st roll carefully
(If paper slips lick finger tips)
Continue rolling up while keeping paper straight
Lick top end and press to glue
Twist the lower (right) end to finish.
The next post will cover additional technuiques for safer cannabis use. Stay tuned
