Can You Use Tissue Paper To Roll A Joint?

If you are into cannabis you most likely have a kit of everything you need. But even hard-core stoners run out of smoking papers.

So, what can you use in this situation? You may only have tissue paper on hand, but can you use them to roll a joint?  In this article, we are going to explore this possibility. 

So, let’s get started!

This Is How You Can Use Tissue Paper To Roll A Joint

Tissue paper is quite easy to tear and is a lot thinner than regular rolling paper. It is by no means ideal to use for rolling joints. But, in a pinch, it can be used and this is how you can do it: 

Step 1 

First, you need to make sure that you have tissue paper. Any kind will work but it would be best if you used tissue paper that does not have any dye in it. 

Step 2 

Now, take your rolling paper and cut it to size. You will need to make sure that the tissue paper is about the size of an average piece of rolling paper. Typically, they are between thirty-four millimeters wide and sixty-eight millimeters in length. 

Step 3 

Get your weed and grind it up. You can use a grinder or your hands if you do not have one handy. 

Step 4 

Once your weed is ground up, put it on the tissue paper along with your shake. At this point, if you are using a crunch you should add it too. 

Step 5 

Make sure that your joint is shaped before you roll it up. 

Step 6 

Now all you need to do is pack the end of the joint with tissue paper. Be cautious because tissue paper is quite fragile and thin which makes it a bit tougher to manipulate. 

What Else Can You Use?

On the topic of using things that are not rolling paper for a joint. Let us explore some of the other things you can use in a pinch. 

Aluminum Cans

You can also use aluminum cans as a way to hold your rolled joint. The trick here is to make sure that you seal off the top of the can so that air cannot escape while you roll your joint. This will keep it from getting soggy.

Gum Wrapper

Gum wrappers are great for wrapping around your joint when you are ready to smoke it. They are very similar to regular rolling paper, although they are usually much thicker.

Gum wrappers can be found at most convenience stores. If you find yourself running low on gum wrappers then you can always buy more online.

Rose Petals

Rose petals are another thing that you can use for rolling joints. They are fairly inexpensive and come in many different colors. When buying rose petals be careful to purchase those that are fresh because the older ones tend to dry out quickly.

Corn Husks

Another option is corn husks. These are pretty similar to the rose petals since they both come in many different colors and sizes. Corn husks are a little harder to come across than rose petals, however.

Apple Pipes

Apple pipes are a fun alternative to using something like a bong or a water pipe. Apple pipes are basically just apple cores cut up and placed inside a glass tube. You can find these online or at specialty shops.

Tin Foil

This may seem a little weird, but tin foil works well for making joints. All you need to do is wrap the foil around the outside of your joint and then place it between two pieces of wax paper.

To get started, simply fold down a section of the foil and then unfold it back over itself. Then, fold the second half of the foil down and repeat until you have completely covered the joint.

Finally, fold the ends of the foil up over themselves and place them on top of your joint.


The last item we will discuss is the vaporizer. A vaporizer is a device used by smokers to heat their herb to the point where it becomes a gas rather than a solid.

There are many types of vapes available today ranging from small portable units to large desktop models. Vaporizers work best when combined with a good quality blunt.

They are typically made of stainless steel and have an atomizing chamber located at one end of the unit.

How Much Weed Do You Put In A Joint? 

In order to determine how much weed you should put into a joint, you first need to know how much weed you ultimately plan on smoking before you begin rolling it.

Once this amount has been determined, you can start putting as much weed into the joint as you want without worrying about whether you’ve gone overboard.

The easiest way to figure out how much weed you should put inside your joint is to take the length of the joint and divide it by the number of times you are going to smoke it. 

For example, if you are planning on smoking a joint that is approximately 6 inches long, you would multiply 6 inches by the number of times that you plan on smoking it.

In this case, you would say that you should put 3-4 grams of weed into the joint. This method only works if you are not planning on smoking your entire joint all at once.

How Much Weed Can You Consume? 

If you are concerned about how much weed you are consuming while you are smoking, there are several things that you can do. First, you can always go smaller.

If you don’t feel comfortable smoking more than the recommended amount, just keep the size of the joint small. Second, you could also try having less frequent smokes. 

Instead of smoking every 20 minutes, you could wait 30 minutes between each hit. The goal here is to make sure that you aren’t getting too high too fast.

You can also try different methods. For example, some people choose to roll their weed in tobacco instead of bud. Others prefer to use hash oil instead of cannabis flower.

Still, others like to mix both together. Regardless of what method you decide to use, the idea is to find something that allows you to consume less weed while still being able to enjoy yourself.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to smoking weed, there really isn’t any right or wrong way to do it. As long as you learn to control your THC levels, you should be fine. 

Remember, the key is moderation!
