not sure where the knowledge came from, but me and my
buddy (JaySpliff) used to roll these whilst we were at
university. They make for an outstanding smoke and
you?ll sure to impress everyone with your spliff rolling
I?m well aware that this joint isn?t for
the first time roller, so for the basics on how to roll
the standard UK style joint please see
My How to
skin up, the UK way
First you?ll need the
full set of resources including; Papers, Roach, MJ
Begin by taking 3 strips of roach card
approximately 3cm in length and proceed to making 3
small tubes (photo 2).
You now need 6 king size
papers, as you will be using 2 papers per joint. Join
the 2 papers as shown in the photo, (photo 3). Next you
can remove a triangle of paper from the top of the L
shape by folding on the angle, here you can lick the
paper and tare or cut. Removing paper helps with the
formation of the cone. You should now be left with the
classic L shaped paper with the glue lines as shown.
Now you have the paper
and the roach tube you can go on to assemble the joint.
Note: by making sure the joint is slim and firm but not
tight, the formation of the weave can be made more
manageable in later stages. (photo 4)
When all 3 joints have
been rolled to similar dimensions you can now continue
by grouping all joints together by the roach end of the
spliff (photo 5).
hold all 3 joints together to make the forming of the
weave easier you can wrap another piece of roach card,
approximately 3cm in length, around the tips of the
joints. Fasten this with a little sticky tape: (photo
This is the tricky section of the roll and must
be approached with firm but gentle hands. It is here
where the slim firm cone shaped characteristics of the 3
joints will come into play. As you can see from the
photos, I have rolled with 2 white joints and 1 green
joint so you may see how the structure forms.
The green spliff will be identified as the
MIDDLE spliff. The 2 white spliffs as LEFT and RIGHT.
Hold the joint up right whilst rolling:
by over lapping the LEFT white joint over the MIDDLE
green joint. Next, fold the RIGHT joint over the MIDDLE
joint. Continue to press down the folds into place with
a little adjusting and firming of the structure, but be
very careful not to tighten the joints too much or they
wont smoke well. Now repeat the process of LEFT over
MIDDLE, RIGHT over MIDDLE, until the top of the joints
has been reached. Once complete you can twist the ends
together to hold the form and straighten up the overall
weave of the Joints. This ?should? leave you with a
fantastic looking spliff that is sure to amaze most.
This spliff looks gorgeous and smokes
surprisingly well, you?ll be shocked at how high you?ll
get - 3 nice joints in one!
