How to Roll a Cigarette with a Hand Roller (Thumb Roller)?
One of the traditional ways to make a cigarette is to use a so-called hand roller. This device requires using papers instead of tubes and you can carry it just in your pocket. Since this process may seem to be more complicated, especially for beginners, we will provide mode detailed explanations on how to do this.
The following are the materials that you will need to use:
- Rolling papers;
It is worth saying a few words about the rolling paper. It comes in different sizes, and it is essential to make sure that it fits well into your device.
Also, you may also want to buy filters for your cigarettes because this is how you can decrease the risks for your health. However, those are not necessary materials for making your cigarette. Finally, you need to get a cigarette roller.
Step 1: Prepare for Rolling
First, you need to place your filter with some amount of tobacco into the machine. It is important to choose the right amount of filling. Usually, it takes a few times to make a cigarette using the same materials and machine to understand how much you need to add to roll a perfect cigarette.
Step 2: Pack the Roller
Now you need to make sure that tobacco is filled evenly. You need to push it down with your fingers so that it gets a cylindrical form. It is also possible to use other stuff for this purpose, such as tampers. Now you need to close the roller, making sure that there is no loose tobacco sticking up. To make sure that the tobacco has the right form, roll the roller that is closer to you for one time.
Step 3: Insert the Paper
Now, you can insert the paper into the machine. Make sure that the edge of the paper is located parallel to the table. Also, remember that one edge of the paper has the adhesive and you need to insert in the rolling device the one that does not have it.
Start rolling the roller that is closest to you until the rolling paper is nearly fully into the machine. There should a small piece of paper remain outside of the device, the one that comes with adhesive. Using your tongue, wet the edge of the rolling paper that comes with adhesive and keep rolling the roller for a few more times. Now, you can just open the rollers and remove your cigarette from there.
