    SWIM's been smoking MJ for about a year and only recently has he noticed that about one in three of his joints sideburn quite badly, resulting in wastage.


    I don't notice that he's rolling differently, so anyone have any ideas what the problem is or preferably have any ideas how to stop it from happening in the future?

    Put some saliva on your finger and then make the side with the run wet. This is new to you? [​IMG]

    Are you rolling a loose joint?

    What I do is either have enough weed to fill the paper to the max and just have enough for the glue to stick to the edge of the bottom side...or get smaller papers to where it will....practice is the key though...takes time...it took awhile before I could roll a good doobie....it's an art really....


    And for those of you that use a bill to tighten your shit up...Stop...it makes it run for the hills quicker than anything.....if you can't get it right the first time, do it over....

    This sideburning effect is also called canoeing. I think thats to many vowels lol. Anyway, creeping deaths method is correct and u can also 'bless' your doob before hand by putting it in your mouth and pulling it out through your pursed lips making sure it is damp all around.


    cheers

    The joints are fine on the tightness front, but I will remember the saliva thing for the future. Thanks.

    It's hard to roll aJ as good as acancer stick. I've only known a few people that can do it, but if you get that good your J's won't run at all. I'm not that goodat rolling so I use Joker 1 1/2. It's hard to roll a bad one with those. I would just roll an L though.

    I used to find that I had that problem when I was rolling with hash, it was because I had just burned the brown on top of the tobacco and then rolled up without giving the joint a roll in my palms or shaking it up a bit (hold it at theempty end and shake)and the hash would just burn up one side faster than the tobacco side. This sometimes happened with skunk as well but not as much.

    Catch that run man. Spittin on ur finger is always the easiest way to fix this, everybody's j/blunt will run every once in a while.

    LOL! [​IMG]Yeah, when I see someone do that it makes me want to puke! [​IMG]One time I was with a personthat had rolled a severely mangled and impregnatedblunt. Then they attempted to make it look proper by covering it in copious amounts oftheir saliva. I just got up and left. [​IMG] Edited by: DrugPhreak

    There's always way's around something like that, for instance my friend
    always "(*nigger lip's) anything when he smoke's, even a cig, when i
    smoke after him i always put my fingers right at the end of the blunt
    and put my lip's on my finger's and hit it like that.





    * NO OFFENCE TO NIGGER'S[​IMG]

    naw that was a my lil joke, but everybody call's it that when someone slobber's all over a j/blunt.

    If you LIGHT, not roll, the joint right (although rolling method is obviously
    important), it shouldn't canoe. If it still does, I just tip it upside down
    (burning side facing floor), and light the end this way. If you do this
    right, only the paper on the side that's messin' up should burn, evening
    the sides out and fixing your problem...just blow it out after it lights up,
    and you're good... [​IMG]

    - I would take offence to that if anyonesaid that to me, in the UK (North East)we call it duckie-ing (duckeed) the joint. Frankly im appalled that someone who smokes weed (usually an open minded person) would use a racist comment todescribe anything.......unless your racist[​IMG]

    Tip One.. MIX your hash/green with the tobacco first, this makes sure its evenly distributed and helps to stop it canoeing/sideburning


    tip two. when you've rolled the J, find a hard surface, like a table, or work surface and holding the J lightly between your thumb and first two fingers, tap it on the surface for a while,


    extra tip,make more mix than you think you'l;l need for the J, once youve tapped it, scoop some more mix into the end of teh J giving you a bigger J and more time before you need to roll another!

    i usually don't smoke joints unless i roll them, becuz i have seen too many people who stick the entire joints in the mouths and suck on it just to make it stick, and i hate smoking with people who take a couple tokes and when they pass it to u, and there is saliva dripping off of it, that shit makes me want to puke


    but if u need help rolling joints, just order a rolling machine off of a website, usually u can get them pretty cheap

    Soaking a blunt in a little saliva isn't that big a deal, at least with
    me, because I run a lighter all over it to dry it, before I start to
    smoke. That way it gets super hard and toasted on the outside,
    and is disinfected.



    Anyone ever smoke a weed cigar? I've always wanted to, but I
    don't grow and am not super rich, so I got no access to the supplies to
    make one or buy one.
