6 Simple Steps on How to Roll a Cross Joint
Ever stop by a party and see guys taking hits off a cross joint and wonder how the heck they made such an amazing smoking device. Maybe you saw Seth Rogen and James Franco in the Pineapple Express and want to replicate how they created their own cross joint. Although it might appear to be complex in design, this wickedly cool joint is much easier to make than you might imagine. Just follow along with these six simple steps on how to roll a cross joint and you will be blasting off in no time.
Before we get started with the six simple steps on how to roll a cross joint, you need to gather up your supplies while you are still somewhat focused. Gather up three rolling papers, a sewing needle or big metal paper clip, scissors, your grinder, a small section of cardboard, and most importantly your weed.
Let’s get this show on the road!
Start by grinding your stash to a fine blend, then start rolling two separate joints. Be sure that as you are rolling the joints that one is average size and one is very fat. One thing to consider when making the thicker joint, it needs to be wide enough that you can slide a smaller joint right through the middle of it without it falling apart.
Using the sharp end of the needle or an unfolded metal paper clip, puncture a hole right through the center of the larger joint. The hole needs to be approximately 3/4 of the way down from the top. Once you pierce the joint, wiggle the tool around so that you create a clear hole in which you can slide the smaller joint through without any real effort.
Now that you have created the hole in the large joint, use the needle or paper clip to make a tiny hole in the smaller joint about dead center. This hole is necessary so that the air can easily flow through the cross consistently when you are smoking from it.
Now take the larger joint and hold it firmly in your hand, grab the smaller joint with your other hand and begin to gently push it through that hole in the larger joint. The key here is that you need to line up both holes so the air can flow easily through the cross. Once the holes are lined up, stop pushing the smaller joint through the hole.
Use the scissors and cut away the strip of gum off the remaining piece of rolling paper. Moisten that little strip of paper, then take this gummy strip and wrap it around the center of the cross to make the piece a
ir tight. Once the strip is in place, the air should not be able to escape.
Grab your lighter and spark up your new cross joint and enjoy all that hard work! If you lined up the holes correctly, then you should be enjoying a vortex of goodness from your exceptional joint engineering.
