HELP I cant light my joints right

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by Cannabis_Cactus, Jan 22, 2014.

  1. Hey guys so just recently I began rolling my own joints (about two weeks ago) and I do okay..
    But whenever I go to light them I have the hardest damn time.
    I watched a video where the guy uses the base of the flame on the lighter and slowly rotates the joint to get an even burn... I tried that but it just doesn't stay lit for long! I have to light my joint 6-7 times before it's done!

    What am I doing wrong? Is it my rolling? My papers? (DLX 1 1/4) --- help please!
  2. most likely your rolling just loosen up your joints a little bit and turn the end while burning it and hit it at this same time, lights right up
  3. its n da roll bro
  4. All in the rolling eh?
    Alright, thanks you two I'll give it a shot tonight haha!
  5. your joints are too tight
    fire needs some air to live
  6. get yoself a blunt wrap
  7. Either the roll is too loose or too tight. I'm not familiar with your papers but in my experience thin paper doesn't hold a flame so well. My rolls are consistent and I've found the burn depends on the paper used. Seeing you just started rolling, keep trying. Practice makes perfect.
  9. i WILL BE GLAD TO HELP You.   I AM an EXPERT JOINT ROLLER  :smoking:   :smoking:
  10. I'll post some pics of a new one tonight

    I just did take 2! Grinded extra fine and (what I thought) was a little bit looser that I usually pack it.
    Was hard to light and start at first, but once it got to the middle, it hit all the way down! I think I made progress :hello:
  11. Another possibility is the weed being really moist or something? Although I'd imagine you would know if it was wet.
    Practice rolling with some cheap ass tobacco or something as you don't want to keep fighting with the joint wasting weed, don't have to smoke the baccy just get it lit don't inhale the smoke and roll another till you get it mastered.
  12. roll blunts, problems all solved.
    still a paper noobie - why are blunts preferred?
  14. probably rolling too tight, throw up a picture
  15. I'll post a pic in about 2 hours when I get back home!

    awesome thanks for the help much appreciated..
  17. Make sure the bud is tightly packed together the air spaces is what make it go out and not give you that nice even burn Sent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum
  18. Try rolling the bud in a grinder...then pack it in a paper, much easier...problem solved. Weed burning when you ain't toking is weed wasting with no one smoking.....just saying…

    Okay I think this is my 6th one rolled overall and I think it is also my best.. but yeah tell me what you think.
    Again it was hard to light until about halfway down but once it was there it hit for the rest.
    (this was before I tied up the end and put the crutch/filter in.
