Joints seem to be a polarizing topic amongst tokers: either you love them or hate them. Today we are taking a closer look at the pros and cons of joints. So sit back, spark up, and learn something. Don’t forget to let us know in the comments sections if we forgot anything.
- Taste – Joint paper detracts from the natural flavor of the weed less than a blunt but more than a bong or vaporizer.
- Longevity – a properly rolled joint should be long-lasting and make its way around the cypher at LEAST three times, maybe even more.
- Passing a joint around a cypher can be a very social experience, likely to include some good conversations.
- Customizability – You can roll a big old fat spliff or a tiny little personal joint.
- You only have to spark the lighter/match once.
- Discreet – A joint is a great mobile smoking option & disposable incase of an emergency. Also, it is easily disguisable as a home-rolled cigarette.
- Flexibility – Whereas you definitely need a cigar to roll a blunt, if you do not have rolling papers you can MacGuyver rolling paper out of many household items…just be careful of harmful chemicals.
- Health – Joints are amongst the worst for your health of any of the major smoking options.
- Learning Curve – It’s fairly easy to roll a rudimentary joint, but don’t be surprised if its full of air pockets and burns really quickly. It takes some practice and patience to master rolling tight, fat joints.
- Stank – Your fingers are going to stank of weed for the rest of the day. Purell is your friend.
- Smoking Paper – Fact of the matter is that you are smoking paper along with your weed, and any time you add non-cannabis elements you are detracting from the natural effervescence of the weed.
- Weed Consumption – Some people believe joints and blunts are a waste of weed.
