Rolling joints is easy enough when you have the proper supplies. But all too often we find ourselves in situations where we have one piece of the joint rolling puzzle but not the other.

In a moment of desperation, put your MacGyver hat on and make do with what you’ve got by following this very simple method.

Step 1: Add Heat

Take the empty gum wrapper, heat up the colored side with a lighter—but be sure to keep the flame a few inches away from the wrapper so you don’t burn it and mess up the process.

Step 2: Start Peeling

Once you have heated the wrapper, you can begin to easily peel away the colored coating on the paper. You can also peel the paper apart without heating, but it will take ages.

Make sure to do this properly and leave no piece of aluminum in there. It can be dangerous if you end up smoking it. If it turns out to be impossible to do, maybe just go to the nearest gas station and some proper rolling papers or get an apple and make an apple pipe.

Step 3: Roll & Spark Up

Once you have peeled the papers, you can fill the white paper with your favorite weed. The only problem is that the paper doesn’t have adhesive.

You can use honey to create the seal. Another option is to use a THC tincture to add even more potency to the j. Seal it up and get on your way to smoking a gum wrapper joint.
