This Is How You Can Easily Stop Your Joints From Canoeing

If you like to smoke joints, you’ve probably had a joint canoe before. If not, you are either very lucky or have no idea what I’m talking about.

If you like to smoke joints, you’ve probably had a joint canoe before. If not, you are either very lucky or have no idea what I’m talking about. Despite your particular circumstances, let’s solve this problem once and for all.

What is a canoeing joint?

Ever smoking a joint, and it starts to burn unevenly? Well, it kind of resembles a canoe. Nothing is worse than rolling a joint for you and your friends, and having it burn like the joint above… I mean, seriously, it does look like a canoe.

Quick fixes for canoeing joints

If you don’t care why this happens, the only things left to do is find an immediate solution to the problem. They’re basic, but they work on the fly. You can fix a canoeing joint  by:

  1. Turning the joint upside down to even out the heat distribution
  2. Put some saliva on the faster burning end to slow it down (gross. Don’t do this in front of someone you want to impress)
  3. Use a lighter to burn the end that is a bit behind

All of these options are unfortunate. Who wants to worry about an uneven joint when you’re just trying to have a good time?

How to prevent your joints from canoeing

Joints canoe for a few reasons. Unfortunately for you, they are all your fault. One of the biggest reasons that joints burn unevenly is because they are are not rolled tight enough.

When there is space between the bud and paper, it makes for an uneven toke. Another common cause of canoeing joints is that you are not lighting your joint evenly. Spin the joint while you light it to ensure that all sides are catching fire.

Sometimes, joints can canoe simply because of the wind. The best way to avoid this is to smoke in a more enclosed area – a gazebo, parked car, or in a garage are all fantastic options. Don’t be a dummy and try to enjoy all that a joint as to offer in a windstorm.

Additionally, while some users love using joint rollers, many report that their joints canoe more often. Therefore, trust yourself. Grind the bud, and roll it tight in order to insure that your joints will not burn unevenly.

If you can’t find a solution

If you try all of these tips and maintain the fact that you can roll an above average joint, there is only one solution. Start using a vape.

Friends, you deserve to enjoy your joints in peace, and without the heartache of your joint canoeing. Learn to spot the warning signs, and know the quick-fixes if you are ever in a pinch. No matter what, happy smoking!

Why It's Important to Grind Your Weed

To be quite honest, I even feel there’s a nasty undertone in that question. Why wouldn’t you grind your flower? The question is actually why do you keep on breaking up herb with your fingers. Heck! Why are you still using that one-piece grinder from back in high school?

Good joints necessarily need well-milled flowers! You cannot create a smoker’s treasure by simply destroying weed and rolling it up so it later carburates badly. Canoeing occurs when you can’t pack weed tightly enough, and to prevent that Flower Mill has well-engineered pieces that are a functional bliss.

To fully enjoy the power and flavor of weed, you must use a quality mill. Delicate, fluffy, and well-preserved ground weed can outwork any improperly processed piece of junk you try to throw into a bowl. Treat weed with care, man!

Why Do You Need A Quality Grinder?

Whether you dig the 3-piece or the 4-piece grinder, you know how much your rolling game improves with a quality mill. You can quickly review the five reasons why you need a good, premium-built grinder, or stick to the basics.

First and foremost, time is money baby! The less time you spend on grinding the product, the more time you’ll have to sit back and chill after rolling the J. With less time spent on destroying the product, and actually using a good grinder, you will get a fluffy, resinous ground flower that will be easier to roll up.

A quality grinder is also a clean and well-maintained one, not just a fancy and expensive piece you let fill up with grime. A well-maintained piece of equipment will last longer, perform more efficiently, and produce cleaner results than a device that cannot be cleaned properly.

With an even grind, a clean tool, and good technique you can achieve a joint that does not canoe! Take one of Flower Mill’s grinders out for a spin, the danger is you might never want to grind with a traditional grinder anymore.

How Will All This Prevent Help Prevent Canoeing

Canoeing is one of the most annoying things that can happen to a joint, and even if there might be a fix, it’s best to prevent it from ever happening. Whenever you roll, try to keep your ground herb well lined up and packed, so the rolling paper is in contact with the produce.

Once there’s a gap of air inside the roll, you will get a part of the paper that burns quicker. Even if Raw’s founder recommends their paper because of even burning, this shit can happen to anyone. The best thing you can do to prevent this from happening is to give your weed an even grind and later roll with care.

After you’ve licked and sealed that joint, give it some taps on the filter end to further compact and tighten that roll. If you take care of all these steps you might prevent canoeing, but the first step is to improve your grinding.

Premium Edition Flower Mill

When looking for a good grinder, we want one with a nice rotor, a solid catch, and preferably one made of metal for easier cleaning and increased durability. We came upon the Premium Edition Flower Mill with Catch, constructed of stainless steel and etched with a gorgeous flower while scouring the market for something practical, beautiful, and durable.

Everything about this mill is manufactured with precision and attention to detail; the chamber has no metal-on-metal contact, and the outside shell is made of aircraft-grade aluminum to make it light. This stainless steel piece features a unique rotor design that gradually crumbles herb rather than breaking it by force, resulting in more fluffy joint material.

This four-piece grinder is attractive and spacious, allowing you to grind and store your flower on the move or in your crib. These grinders, like the 3-piece grinder, excel at their primary job while also keeping your kief separate in case you wish to use it. It has an additional chamber in the middle with a tiny mesh screen that separates your ground herb from pollen or kief from the flower.
