Crafty Cannabis: How to Smoke Out of an Apple and Roll a Cross Joint

Mar 25

Ever found yourself wanting to enjoy some cannabis but lacked the traditional tools? Maybe you're just looking for a fun, creative way to spice up your session. Whatever the case, learning how to smoke out of an apple and how to roll a cross joint can turn an ordinary experience into an extraordinary one. Let’s break down these two crafty methods into simple, easy-to-follow steps.

How to Smoke Out of an Apple

Yes, you heard that right. An apple. This method not only serves as a handy solution when you're in a pinch but also adds a hint of fruity flavor to your smoke. Here’s how you can turn a regular apple into your new favorite smoking device:

  • Gather Your Supplies: You'll need an apple, a pen or a similar tool to create holes, and your cannabis.
  • Make the Bowl: Start by removing the apple stem. This spot will serve as the bowl where you'll place your cannabis. Use your pen to create a hollow about halfway through the apple. Be careful not to poke all the way through.
  • Create the Mouthpiece: Now, take your pen and make another hole on the side of the apple. This should connect with the first hole you made, creating a pathway for the smoke. This side hole is where you'll draw the smoke from.
  • Add an Optional Carb: For a smoother experience, you can create a carb—a small hole that allows you to clear the smoke from the apple chamber. Just poke another hole on the opposite side of the mouthpiece that connects to the central chamber.
  • Pack and Smoke: Place your cannabis in the top hole, light it up, and inhale from the side hole. Voila, you’ve just turned an apple into a smoking apparatus!

How to Roll a Cross Joint

Now, for those who want to elevate their joint-rolling skills, the cross joint might look complex, but it’s surprisingly doable with a bit of practice. This iconic joint is not just for show; it allows for an even burn from two joints at once. Here’s how to craft this conversation starter:

  1. What You’ll Need: Two rolling papers, a needle or a thin object to create a hole, your cannabis, and a grinder.
  2. Roll the Base Joint: Roll a standard joint but with a bit more cannabis than usual, as this will form the base of your cross joint. Make sure it's packed firmly and has a twist at one end.
  3. Roll a Smaller Joint: Now, roll a second, thinner joint that will act as the crosspiece. This one doesn’t need a filter but ensure it's sealed well.
  4. Prepare the Crosspiece: Take the thinner joint and use your needle to poke a hole through its center. Wiggle the needle around to widen the hole slightly, ensuring the smoke can pass through.
  5. Puncture the Base Joint: Carefully create a hole in the base joint where you want the crosspiece to intersect. This hole should be slightly smaller than the diameter of your thinner joint.
  6. Assemble the Cross: Insert the thinner joint through the hole in the base joint. It should fit snugly, ensuring smoke can pass from one end to the other.
  7. Seal the Intersection: Take a small strip from another rolling paper, lick it, and wrap it around the intersection of the two joints. This will seal any gaps and ensure a smooth smoke flow.
  8. Light It Up: To smoke your cross joint, light the three ends simultaneously (you might need a friend’s help). Inhale from the base joint’s filter, and enjoy the double burn.
