Some sources are particular about the paper they use. Zig Zag is popular, but RAW organic hemp papers are well-regarded.

Grind your bud and remove any sharp pieces. Pour it into a paper (we added an extra fold so it's more of a trough) with the adhesive strip facing you. Don't overfill, and if product drops out the side, just let it fall.

Make a little indentation in the pile in the middle, and then start rolling the trough back and forth with your fingers and thumbs, applying some pressure and moving the weed about so it becomes an even cylinder.

Try to cover the full surface of the J with your fingers, so it's getting even pressure throughout.

Now the tricky part: Getting the first tuck. Again, thinking of it as folding and not rolling, we got ours to stay, ever so carefully. In another test we tried tucking from the center outward, and that worked well, too.

Roll up, keeping the tension you established. Lick the adhesive (go easy) to seal.

Voila. Johnson advises sucking on both ends before lighting, to see which has the best airflow. Even the most uniform joint will have product lying in a certain direction, so take advantage of that.
