Spliffigami: How To Roll A Dutch Tulip
You may have caught a glimpse, or sniff, of one of these on the streets of Amsterdam. Here’s a lesson on how to roll a Dutch Tulip spliff.
Welcome back! It’s time for another Spliffigami creation. Last week we showed you how to roll a scorpion joint. This week we’re showing you how to roll a Dutch Tulip, courtesy of Daily Smoker. This spliff is one for the non-purists as it typically has a mixture of cannabis and tobacco. But of course, by all means feel free to make it with just cannabis. We always encourage people do try their own take on anything we post here.
So let’s see how we roll that baby. I am going to skip over the part where you cut up the weed into an even mixture because everyone can cut weed. I will break this up into a bunch of small steps to help with creating this beauty.
You’ll need: rolling papers, cannabis, cardboard (roach), and a little bit of time
Step 1: The beginning
Make a square shape out of your rolling papers. Depending on the paper, you can cut them down, or put 2 or 3 together, you can do it if you think creatively.
Step 2: The cone
Fold the paper diagonally, but leave the gum exposed. You’ll need it to fold over the edges of the paper and make a seal. Then lick the gum and fold it over to make the cone.
Step 3: Fill the cone
Fill the cone up with weed and pack it down nicely. You’ll need to leave some space to that you can wrap the tube with some paper and seal it. Start filling the cone with very fine pieces of bud, that way the cone is completely and evenly full.
Step 4: Making the roach
Most people prefer to use a longer roach, usually making half of the paper length the roach. A longer roach can do three things.
- Add structural stability to your joint.
- Make it easier to smoke the whole way.
- Cools the smoke down a bit. Licking the roach will help it stay rolled up tightly. Some like to heat it a bit with the lighter, it’s all a matter of preference.
Step 5: Fill the tube
Fill the paper with the roach and an even mixture of marijuana, or tobacco. Now roll it up. I used the backflip method because it uses less paper, but you could roll up a traditional fatty if you wanted to. Remember to make sure the tube-like joint is fat enough to support the weight of the tulip, I can’t stress this enough. Otherwise, this thing will fold over like a broken penis. And a broken penis does nobody any good now does it?
Step 6: Connect the tube and the cone
Insert the weed end of the tube-like joint into the end of the cone, then try to wrap the paper tightly (as possible without slaughtering the joint) with the gummed strip from another paper. Remember, your tube should be fat enough to support the weight of the tulip. You could use string or an elastic to secure the cone to the tube, but you’d be smoking rubber or wool.
Step 7: Finish and Enjoy
Slice off a tiny bit at the top so there is a tiny hole, spark it up, inhale, exhale, and prepare to get lifted.
