It is widely used by many cannabis enthusiasts because it has a great influence on the entire growing experience. A backward joint is rolled using one piece of rolling paper to wrap the weed.

While trying to roll a backward joint, there are a couple of things to note specially and avoid. The major difference between a backward joint and a normal joint is the way you hold the paper. The rolling paper has a fold with a glue strip in the middle which helps with rolling. For this joint, you turn the paper face down before filling it with weed. This means the side of the paper which is usually outside is the one to be filled with the weed hence the name.
While filling, ensure that the glue strip is at the edge facing you. Try your best to get the cone or cylinder shape while rolling your jay. After rolling, use the glue strip to tuck it in. You can easily lick it from the outside to ensure it’s properly tucked in. Afterward, go on the enjoy a soothing smoking experience.

Next, you bring one of the bottom corners to the opposite top corner to form a triangle. Wet the strip and use it to seal the new triangle shape together. Open the sealed triangle to give a cone shape and fill it to the brim with your weed.
Roll another jay and pack it with your weed. Cut odd the excess paper ad trim the terminal edges of the jay. Insert the end of this jay in your cone and use another paper to seal the cone and jay together. Cut off the excess paper and use the last glue strip to attach the cone to the straight jay. Light it up and enjoy a crazy smoking experience.

This can be done through different methods but the common method of to roll a paper tube, seal it at one end and pack it with weed. Another way to make the bottle joint is to roll the paper packed with weed the normal way. Afterward, you cut off the excess paper and stuff it at the open end of the normal joint.
