No please don't laugh at the subject! I have never learn't the technique of how to skin up. Instead i have this rizla rolling machine (cop out i know) but it works. What i would like thought is advice how to roll up a simple joint. I have tried a few times but with dire results!
Cheers, Dan

    Ok. First of all, do you know how to roll fags? 'Cause if you do then skinning up is nowhere near as difficult. If you don't, get yourself some rolling baccie and get started learning, it's gonna be a lot cheaper than learning with puff.

    I still (being the wimp I am) only skin up using rolling baccie, as I find that fags don't move anywhere near as easily, not to mention I prefer the taste combination.
    There are loads of ways of doing it, but this is the way that works for me:

    Once I've got it set up (pot & baccie on paper), I put in my roach, making sure that the first 2cm(ish) is only baccie ('cause you never smoke it right down to the roach & who wants to waste good gear). I then pick it up and spread the mix along the paper by rolling it between my fingers (the same thing that your rolling machine is doing).

    Once it's even, I tuck one side of the paper behind the mix and begin the process of actually rolling it. The whole time that I do that I try to use one of my pinkies to even it out. This is the trickiest bit. Once it's nearly in place, I run my tongue along the glue and get it into place. I then take the end and shake it GENTLY to make sure that all the baccie is easily distributed. Then twist the top, bite off the spare paper & enjoy.

    If you go to Yahoo! and search for "cannabis rolling" you will find a whole host of sites with piccies that probably make a lot more sense than me.

    trial and error is the way everyone learns i'm affraid, practice before you actually use any pot. depending on the skins, size, and design of the joint, there are a variety of techniques. box standard way(for me) is with small papers, if your learning use greens as they have the corners cut off. other advice is don't overload it with tobacoo, when rolling do it between you thumbs and index finger, don't try and roll to tightly, you can always poke it down after it's rolled. i don't put my roach in till the end.

    Simple as this:
    Try it. Try it over and over and OVER again..
    Just watch friends when they skin up for you and if you are really desperate just invest a packet of Rizzla and skin up with pure tobacco, tear it up and try again.

    My spliffs are vertically challenged, but I am getting better..

    It's not really a matter of rolling the joint, more tucking and folding.

    Get some Golden V. and some King size Reds and practice over and over again.

    It's easier to grin up with rolling baci and in my view it tastes better, it's not so bad for you're health and a joint with rolling baci will last longer.

    ok dan the man
    what you do is break up your weed and take all seed, stems etc.. out and place the weed on top and spread it out evenly then take the roller and push it up i quess youd say and roll the rollers tword you. keep it closed. if you look through the side you will see your weed rolled in a circle for then place the paper into the top where the slit is and roll it tword you a little bit , the paper willroll itself around the weed but dont forget to lick the paper.
    walla you have a perfectly rolled joint.

    sorry if i didnt explail it to well but if you practice youll get it

    Does anyone have the slightest clue what those cut off corners are for???

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i find it just makes it that little bit easier to skin up with, when i started my corners used to bend and crinkle, making it hard to put my roach in or poke down the end.

    i find itjust makes it easier to smoke to the end without burning your fingers.also if your doing a nice big doobie, it stops tar clogging up the end and easier to pull.

    I noticed that bizarre fact when I was in Florida during the summer. These guys we met thought it was wierd when we showed them how 2 roll by putting a roach in! Wonder why it is that most Americans don't put in a roach? Anyone any ideas?

    Oooh..and if despite years of practise u still cant roll dont worry, just make cakes with it!! Its great cos you feel fine 2 start with then it just hits you at once!
