How to roll a
no spill "pocket joint" in 5 easy steps:
1) Secure your things
for rolling. A paper of your choice, the herb of your
choice and something that can be your "tray" (preferably
with a crease for a clean and easy transfer from
breaking up to the paper. (I use magazine reply inserts)
2) Take your paper, fold the bottom third up
and crease it lightly.
3) This is the important step; the one
that brings it all together. Wet the crease of the paper
lightly with your tongue. The object isn't to
soak the paper so much as create the adhesive properties
you're looking for. Too wet, the paper rips.
on the other edge. Wet your fingers, then quickly rub
them mostly dry. This helps in the friction of the next
4) Place your fingers at the ends,
overlapping the wet spots and roll inwards gently. You
should begin to see the "pocket" seals coming together.
At this point you have a place to dump your herb - even
in the bouncing car. Fill the pocket.
5) Fold the pocket over into the crease of
the paper, closing off the pocket. Roll with your thumbs
up, tightening the roll as you go. It takes some time to
get it right the first time, but it will roll nicely.
Lick, seal and twist the ends. Done and....
..Ready to enjoy
The best part about this
is you can roll this anywhere, anytime in seconds. If
you're on a road trip, the pockets you created and the
twist at the end will hold the contents of that joint
until you're ready to smoke with no loose bits of herb
Bite off an end to smoke, or if you're more
civilized, use a scissors and snip it clean. Enjoy.
