So it’s come to this. A joint-shaped joint just isn’t doing it for you anymore and you’ve decided it’s time to level up. Well get your grinders handy and your lighters ready, with one simple addition to your joint you will be ready to regally take on the town. The joint pipe can be a festive addition to any party or a solo contemplative cannon to the face.
Step 1: Supplies
- 1 pack of King-Sized papers of your choice (with filters)
- 2-3 Grams of Cannabis
- Don’t forget your lungs
Step 2: Roll a Joint
First roll a joint, to some this will be a simple task but for those who need some guidance please see this tutorial for help. I like to roll a joint that has a slight taper towards the filter like the cone in the linked tutorial, but cylindrical joints work just as well.
Step 3: Cut the Joint
When the joint is finished, use the scissors to cut the tip of the joint at about a 45 degree angle. The angle of this cut also helps to ensure an even burn when the joint pipe is complete.
Step 4: Form the “Bowl” of the Joint Pipe
Now that you have a nice joint it’s time to kick it up a notch. Set it to the side and grab your lighter and another rolling paper. I wrap the rolling paper around the lighter to create the smashed cylindrical shape of the bell of the pipe. When wrapping the paper around the lighter I keep the glue facing inwards, and I lightly wet it to keep it in place. I try to overhang the glue strip off of the lighter so that it doesn’t seal to the lighter when dry.
Step 5: Seal the Pipe
I then grab my pair of scissors and another paper. I take my scissors and I remove the glue strip from my remaining rolling paper. I then seal the connection of the paper bell, being careful not to over wet it. Once sealed, it should easily slide off of the lighter, then we are ready to put it onto our joint.
Step 6: Attach the Pipe to the Joint
I put the bell on first hollow and fill it afterwards. I use the inward facing glue strip top help seal the bell to the joint, it should easily slide over the joint covering it completely on all sides. I use another glue strip if needed to seal the remaining holes after filling, but this is often not needed.
Step 7: Pack it up
When filling the pipe part of the joint pipe, make sure to pack the bell evenly with no air pockets to ensure an even burn.
Step 8: Light it up!
Now your joint pipe is ready to enjoy, or you could continue to add more bends to make more intricate pipe designs. I make sure to build up a good ember before inhaling on these to prevent runs. You can also ‘twax‘ the joint pipe, like the one pictured above. Twaxing means to apply hash/concentrates to the inside, outside, or tip of your rolls/bowls in any way shape or form. It makes the apparatus burn more slowly and evenly.
I find that a butane torch on its lowest setting works well to get the party started, and the joint pipe does a good job at ending it. Hope you all have found this tutorial useful, thank you for looking! Please leave any questions or comments in the comment section below.
