The hassle of practicing rolling, tucking, and twisting thin joint papers to their desired shape is a thing of the past- pre-rolled cones offer both new and long-time cannabis smokers a simple, quick and easy way to smoke your weed.
Pre-rolled cones are a growing favorite of smokers everywhere- you simply cannot beat the simplicity and ease that comes with. These cones come with stems, as seen in the video with the commonly used RAW Pre-rolled cones, enabling the smoker to spend less time fumbling with the positioning of the filter and more time smoking their finished product. There are a few things you should know when picking a pre-rolled joint, so grab your weed and a pre-rolled cone and follow along.
Step 1: Ensure your weed is ground up finely enough to fit into the cone. Also, be sure you have enough weed to fill the entire cone. If you do not fill the whole thing, your joint will be too loose and therefore inefficient.
Step 2: Once you are ready, use a small spoon (a hot chocolate mixing spoon works great), a chopstick, or the helpful packing tool that comes in the packaging with your cone to add your ground cannabis to the cone slowly. Pro tip: Get a cone loader.
Step 3: Continue to pack your cone until you have approximately a quarter-inch left, then you are ready to seal it off.
*There are two things to keep in mind while packing your cone-
First, gentle pressure should be applied frequently to the inside of the cone to “pack” the weed in. This is especially important at the beginning of the pre-roll, as if you forget to pack the weed, your joint will be weak at the base and could cause it to break during smoking. Packing your weed throughout the creation of the joint will reduce the likelihood of any gaps, which could cause your joint to burn or smoke irregularly.
The second thing to remember contrasts the first tip but is equally as important- be careful not to pack your weed too tightly. Joints that are packed too tight will not allow enough air to pass through during smoking. You can test this by using your thumb and pointer finger to pinch the joint lightly. If it feels too stiff or full, simply using your packing tool to loosen the weed. If it feels too loose, use your tool to apply light pressure to the weed, packing it in further.
Step 4: To seal your cone, press and fold each side of the remaining paper down, creating a folded circle OR twist the end between your thumb and pointer finger in one direction until you have made a small wick (similar to a candle).
Step 5: Sit back, relax and enjoy your pre-rolled cone!
