A cross joint is an eye-popping marijuana joint laced across the middle by a long strip of rolling paper. The cross joint is a fun way to impress your friends with your rolling skills and makes for a great party trick. Now, we understand that rolling a cross joint may seem tricky. To help you out, we thought it would be useful to put together a brief article on this subject. If this is something that you want to learn more about, follow these steps to learn how to roll a cross joint in about one minute. 

What Do You Need to Roll a Cross Joint?

You'll need to assemble the following materials to construct a cross joint:

How Do You Roll a Cross Joint?

First, make a joint using regular-sized rolling paper. Grind up your favourite strain of cannabis, but have more than you would to smoke a typical joint of that strain. The more cannabis in your joint, the easier it will be to make the cross-joint on top of it. When finished, leave a little bit of an empty twist on the end of your joint to make it easier to light when it comes time to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Set aside the first joint for now. Grab your shorter joint and use your needle to make a couple of small holes, one straight through the middle of the joint and another in the opposite direction. No wider than the needle you are using, these holes should be about twice as thick as that needle. These holes allow the smoke from the smaller joint to flow up through the larger joint and into your mouth. Take the time to avoid mistakes; get this wrong and you'll end up ruining two joints.

Cross joints are hard to make because you have to insert one end of the thin joint through the hole of the larger joint in order to transform it into a cross. Once you’ve inserted the thin joint, you have to twist and pull the joint until it slides through the hole. The closer you can get the other end of the thin joint to your fingers, without breaking either joint, the easier it will be. If you move too quickly or too roughly, you might break one or both joints, which ruins your cross joint.

It's time to put the final touches on your joint. Assemble your supplies: two more rolling papers and some scissors. Cut a small strip of glue from the larger sheet of paper and place it criss-cross over the joint, reinforcing the gap where the joint passes through. This extra step makes for a sturdier joint that remains completely airtight.


We hope this article proves to be useful when it comes to helping you put together a cross joint. While it may seem too complicated, it’s not actually that difficult as long as you know what you’re doing. Be sure to keep everything you’ve learned here in mind the next time you decide to roll a cross joint.
