5 Tips on How To Make Your Joint Burn Slower

Contents:

Rolling a joint can be much of an art, it's a skill that requires lots of practice and patience. Don't you remember how awful those first few joints you've rolled were? Rather than joints, those things resembled more a wrapped candy probably. Oh if only there was a "how to roll a joint" school, sigh.

Just kidding, no one likes school and why would we get it involved with such a pleasurable thing as smoking marijuana. Besides, learning how to roll a joint isn't all that bad, it's a process of constant improvement, the more you try the better you get at it. And I guess we'll have to smoke all those joints too, whoops

 

However, being able to roll a joint is slightly more complicated than we thought. Being good at rolling means that your joint not only looks well rolled but also burns evenly, without having to grab the lighter every few puffs. Once you get the hang of it, the next step is rolling in a way that you extend the life of a joint as much as possible. 

 

Learn all the tricks to make your joints burn slower and last longer.

Learn all the tricks to make your joints burn slower and last longer.
 

There are several methods that you can use to make a joint burn slower and last longer, these include:

  • Grinding your marijuana;
  • Using slow-burn rolling papers;
  • Making a joint rolled in wax, or the classic shatter joint;
  • Rolling a kief joint, and more.

Let's go through each of these methods and more to make joints burn slower.

1. Always Grind Your Marijuana, Using a Grinder If Possible

The number one rule about almost every method of marijuana consumption is: grind your buds! Seriously, don't underestimate the power of the grinder. Skipping the grinding part of rolling a joint is almost as bad as not putting on sunscreen before heading to the beach.

Grinding weed isn't just great for comfort as you roll, making the bits smaller and easier to handle, but for ensuring that your joint burns evenly and bigger bits don't block it, making your joint disappear in smoke. This is why choosing the right grinder is essential.

Lastly, make sure that you don't over grind your buds since powderish weed will end up blocking your joint and preventing an even burn as well. If you find yourself without a grinder, check out the following article on ways to grind cannabis without a grinder:

2. Check That Your Buds Are Well Dried And Cured

Drying and curing your cannabis buds are the most essential and final parts of the growing process of marijuana plants. Again with the analogies, it's like planning out the perfect party and forgetting about the music. 

When you dry and cure your buds, not only you're allowing them to reach their maximum potency, but you are also making sure that, when you're ready for the moment of consumption, these guys burn evenly. 

 

Time For Drying BudsTime For Curing Buds
Hang your buds from 5 to 15 days after harvest.Let the buds cure in airtight containers for 2-3 weeks, ventilating the jar for some minutes every day. 

 

Most likely you know what we're talking about, chances are that you have at least once smoked buds that were yet too wet to be consumed, and you surely remember how much of a nightmare that was. When you smoke buds that aren't well dried or cured, this results in a joint that requires a lighter for every puff, if it hasn't blocked completely. 

On the other hand, sometimes weed buds are way too dry for their consumption, which in turn, causes your joint to burn way too fast. Ideally, you should dry your buds for two weeks to 20 days, and store them in an air-tight jar in a dark and cool place to preserve their optimal state.

When you use well-dried and cured buds, for sure you'll notice how your joints burn evenly and at a controlled pace. 

3. Use The Right Rolling Papers To Make Joints Last Longer

Another crucial aspect concerning the speed at which your joint burns is involving the type of rolling papers you're using. Yes, something as simple as the rolling paper can completely change your joint's game. 

 

Using the right rolling papers will help your joint burn slowly.

Using the right rolling papers will help your joint burn slowly.
 

The first rule about rolling papers is never, ever, use tobacco papers. Tobacco papers are specially made for cigars never to stop burning, so if you don't want your joint to consume itself while you wait in between puffs, skip these guys. 

Bleached rolling papers are also quite bad, being full of chemicals and so on, so opt for organic options made of hemp, rice, or any other organic source. The color says it all: if it's white then it's a no-go. 

As a general rule, the thicker the paper, the faster it will burn, so search for the thinnest rolling papers you can find if you're looking for your joint to burn slower and last longer. 

Lastly, the slowest burning rolling papers we've ever tried are those made of cellulose, the ones that are transparent. Clear rolling papers not only are made of natural resources, but they also ensure a notoriously slower burn, ideal to make your joints last longer.

4. Add Concentrates To Make Joints Last Longer

If you're looking to make your joints burn slower, one good way of doing this is by adding wax, shatter or hash oil to the mix. Besides, not only will they burn at a slower rate but they will also get you oh so much higher. 

The thick and sticky consistency of cannabis concentrates is great for making fire fight a little to burn your joint. You can add the wax or oil all along the inside or outside of your joint, whichever way you prefer, making sure you've spread it evenly. 

 

Adding a sticky concentrate will make your joints burn slower and get you higher!

Now, keeping in mind that you've just added a stronger concentration of cannabis into your shatter joint, this means you'll also need to smoke less to get as high. So, take it slow as you smoke, checking that you don't smoke too much that you end up feeling not too well. 

Use Honey To Make Your Joints Burn Slower, And Taste Sweeter!

Using honey to make your joints burn at a slower rate is almost like using concentrates to do so, only you skip the potency that these guys come along with.

However, honey is another wonder that nature has given us, and it's great for many things, from healing a cold, to even dying our hair, or making joints last longer! Coat your joints in honey and enjoy the sweet blend for prolonged periods of time. 

 

Not only honey will sweeten things up but also make your joints last longer!

Honey's sticky and thicker consistency will also make the paper consume at a slower speed. But don't soak your paper completely wet, a thin line of honey inside or outside will do. Some people even use it as glue to roll a kief joint, add pollen, or more grinded weed on the outside for a stronger effect and flavor. 

Don't put honey near the crutch though or you'll end up with sticky hands and fingers, but hey at least it tastes good.

5. Tighten Up Your Joints As You Roll For A Slower Burn

One last way of making your joints last longer and burn slower resides in the way you roll, again. Remember when we said that being a master at the art of rolling joints involved more than just making it look nice? This is one of the reasons why. 

A well-rolled joint is one that burns evenly and doesn't smoke itself. At the same time, your joint should be rolled in the perfect mid-level of loose but not too loose, and the same goes for tightness, tight but not too tight that you can't smoke. 

 

Roll your joints tightly for a slower burn.

Air-flow is essential when rolling and smoking a joint. Therefore, learn how to roll one in the precise and ideal tightness for an even and slow burn. If your joint is too airy, then it will burn off fast and uneven, with some sides burning further up to the crutch than the other. 

So, apply some pressure as you roll and make sure there are no stems or chunks of weed making the filling uneven, which will translate into an uneven burn. And never ever forget about the final touch of the poking object: push the weed in a little once you have finished rolling your candle. 

6. The Bottom Line

Never underestimate the importance of rolling a joint properly. Whether you roll a joint with love, and some technique too, will make or break your smoking experience. Let's aim for the make part and leave the break behind.

It's important that you learn from your mistakes as you roll your weed ciggies, so pay special attention to identify where it all went wrong so that the next time you roll you totally nail it. The best advice we can give you as you roll is be patient and take your time, don't stress, and if it gets too hard you can always undo it and start all over again until you're pleased.
