Rolling A Joint Is An Art Form, So Is Smoking It

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – As tough as it may be, rolling the perfect joint and then smoking it requires concentration.

Pot enthusiast Chris Stone has just penned Spliffigami: Roll the 35 Greatest Joints of All Time (Ten Speed Press), which features intricate, origami-inspired spliffs for the dedicated stoner.

The elaborate joints include “The Jumbo,” a doobie shaped like an airplane that leaves tokers flyin’ high, and the “Reefer Roulette,” an implement big enough for six potheads to puff at once.

Stone says rolling jays requires technique, including mastering the “tuck and twist” maneuver, which assures your weed stays packed.

He suggests not smoking while you roll, because an artful joint requires full concentration and pre-puffing may cause distraction.

Once your marijuana masterpiece is sparked, Stone says it’s important to pace yourself because passing out during a smoke session is “poor form.”

He says it’s smart to smoke in intervals, taking breaks, and follow the “puff-puff-pass” rule.

He suggests putting out the doobie for a bit and raiding the fridge or watching cartoons, and then hitting it again for round two.
