If you’re a self-proclaimed pro-roller, we have quite the test for you.
Did you know that cannabis consumers roll different joint
We encourage you to broaden your horizons and try rolling a different kind of joint, one that’s new to you but tried and true to someone else.
Without further ado, here are eight different joints created by cannabis consumers worldwide.

It looks like a beautiful, dank tulip. It was likely invented in Holland, given the name. Rolling a dutch tulip is a bit complex; it calls for about 5-8 papers that will stick together to form a large cone shape. Then, fill the cone with herb to get that iconic Dutch Tulip shape.

Who knows where this idea originated. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was an Italian rolling a tobacco cigarette. Using a single fusilli pasta as the filter is beneficial for two reasons. One, because the airflow is unmatched. Two, the pasta cooks as you smoke, giving off a comforting starchy taste.
Legend has it that Amsterdam founded the renowned L Joint. It’s similar to the cross joint, but instead of placing the top joint in the middle, you shift it over to make an L shape. You can often find them being sold at Amsterdam coffee shops and cafes.

And that brings us to our next joint, the Cross Joint. You’ve definitely seen this roll in movies like Seth Rogen and James Franco’s Pineapple Express. It’s not clear where it originated from, but in the words of James Franco’s character, “Rumor has it, M.M. O’Shaughnessy designed the first one, the guy who designed the golden gate bridge.”

We’re not entirely sure where the Shotgun Joint came from. I would guess a couple of stoned American college students looking for ways to get even higher. The result is simply two joints wrapped in one, either held together by another rolling paper or hash.
Maximum airflow is the name of the game for the Plumber’s Joint. It’s nothing more than your average joint with a small tunnel in the center that allows air to flow easier. This can be made by rolling a regular joint but with a skewer inside, then removing the skewer when you’re ready to spark up.
I can only imagine that the Windmill Joint originates from a country with a lot of windmills. Perhaps South Africa or maybe even the Netherlands. It consists of one thick joint and four smaller joints jabbed into the sides to form a windmill.

The origins of the Braided Twist Joint are unknown, making it a mysterious enigma. Rolling it is quite simple, however. All you need is to roll three relatively thin and loose joints and stick them together at the base with another rolling paper. Then, put your braiding skills to the test and braid the joints from base to tip.
