How To Roll A Coss Joint

Table of Contents

Rolling a cross joint is a creative and visually impressive way to enjoy your cannabis. This joint involves combining two joints, one as the main stem and the other as a crossbar. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to roll a cross joint:


Materials You Will Need:

  1. Cannabis: Make sure you have enough high-quality cannabis flower.
  2. Rolling papers: You will need three rolling papers. Two regular-sized papers for the main joint and one longer paper for the crossbar.
  3. Grinder: Use a grinder to break down your cannabis into a fine consistency.
  4. Filter or crutch: Prepare one filter or crutch for the main joint.
  5. Lighter or matches: You’ll need a source of fire to light your cross joint.


Step-by-Step Guide:

1. Roll the Main Joint:

  • Take one of the regular-sized rolling papers and roll it into a standard joint, just as you would for a single joint. Make sure to include the filter or crutch at one end.
  • Leave a small gap near the filter end to insert the crossbar later. This gap will act as the connecting point for the cross joint.


2. Roll the Crossbar:

  • Take the longer rolling paper, which will serve as the crossbar. This paper should be longer than the main joint.
  • Roll it into a second joint, ensuring that it’s relatively thin and even.
  • Once you have the crossbar joint rolled, twist one end of it tightly to close it.


3. Insert the Crossbar:

  • Carefully insert the twisted end of the crossbar joint into the gap you left in the main joint, creating a “T” shape. Ensure that the crossbar is perpendicular to the main joint and that it fits snugly inside.


4. Seal and Secure:

  • Use an additional small piece of rolling paper to wrap around the intersection point of the main joint and the crossbar. This will help seal and secure the two joints together.


5. Pack and Adjust:

  • Gently tap the main joint to pack the cannabis down evenly. You may need to adjust the crossbar to ensure it’s firmly attached.
  • Trim any excess paper at the ends of both the main joint and the crossbar.


6. Light and Enjoy:

  • Finally, use your lighter or matches to ignite the ends of both the main joint and the crossbar. Be careful while lighting, as you will need to light multiple points.
  • Inhale from one end of the main joint, and enjoy your cross joint!


  • Rolling a cross joint can be tricky, so practice with regular joints first to improve your rolling skills.
  • Ensure both joints are tightly packed to avoid any air gaps.
  • Be patient while constructing the cross joint, as it may take some time to get it right.
  • Use a poker or a pen to adjust the cannabis inside the joints for an even burn.


Rolling a cross joint may take some practice to perfect, but once you’ve mastered it, you’ll have a unique and impressive way to enjoy your cannabis with friends or for special occasions. Always consume responsibly and in accordance with the laws and regulations in your area.


Why using rolling tray?

Using a rolling tray offers several advantages and benefits when rolling and enjoying cannabis. Here are some key reasons why people use rolling trays:

✤ Organization: Rolling trays provide a dedicated and organized space for all your rolling essentials, helping you keep everything in one place. This can include your cannabis flower, grinder, rolling papers, filter tips, and any other accessories you might need. It prevents the materials from scattering and makes the rolling process more efficient.

✤ Cleanliness: Rolling trays help maintain a clean and tidy environment. When you roll your cannabis on a tray, any small pieces, kief, or residue stay contained on the tray’s surface rather than spreading on your table, lap, or other surfaces. This makes cleanup easier and reduces waste.

✤ Convenience: Having all your rolling tools in one place on a rolling tray simplifies the process and saves you from constantly searching for your materials. It ensures that everything you need is within arm’s reach, making the rolling process smoother and more enjoyable.
