Ever wondered how to roll cross joint? Perhaps you watched Pineapple Express and want to relive that experience. Although the cross joint looks wicked cool and complex, it’s easier than you might have imagined. All you need is 3 rolling papers, a paper clip, scissors (optional), and your favorite smoking blend.
Roll two joints. One joint should be significantly larger than the other. If you plan to use a filter make sure you only use it on the larger joint. You will be lighting both ends of the small joint.
Use a paper clip to create a hole in the larger joint.
Maneuver the paper clip around so that you create a large hole all the way through the large joint. The hole should be as big as the small joint. The smaller your joint is, the easier this part becomes.
Use the paper clip to make a hole in the smaller joint. This is to allow air to flow when you smoke it.
Insert the smaller joint into the hole you made in the larger joint. Make sure the holes you poked in the smaller joint are in line with the large joint.
Cut or tear the gum strip off a joint paper. Use this strip to wrap around the center, and make it air tight.
Enjoy the fruits of your labor!

So going to try this
Awesome! I would love to hear how it works out for you.
Tip: make sure the hole is in the middle of the thicker joint (excluding the filter), otherwise the ends won’t have the same size and you won’t be able to light it all up at the same time. Make a “+”, not a “†”.
good luck and have a nice time 😉
Great tip! Thanks for sharing.
Whats the advantage of smoking this way? Do you think it wastes too much?
I think the only advantage to smoking a cross joint is that it looks neat. Is it wasteful? Yeah probably, but they’re still a lot of fun to break out at parties.
The advantage is actually one that most people miss out on, because they don’t actually understand the purpose of a cross joint. It’s so you can smoke two or three kinds of weed at the same time without mixing them. So the taste is the smoke coming from two superset purely rolled strains. You can actually do three if you split two between the smaller joint. Just make sure you don’t mix the weed in the smaller joint.
Ima try it today
Awesome! I would love to know how it works out for you.
if you’re smoking it, it’s never a waste. Also, you can never put a price on an experience. Just my thoughts, bros.
It’s certainly a right of passage – we’ve all been there. Thanks for sharing!
It’s a “rite”* of passage- think “ritual”. A “right” of passage would imply we all have a right to it.
Argh! Wince. Sometimes I can’t stop the Pedantic Demon from getting through!
* It’s fine to blame autocorrect.
lol. No autocorrect. Sometimes I have a lot of comments to go through so my grammar isn’t always on point :/ Good catch. Hope you’re having an awesome day 🙂
We be smoking trifactors since the early 90’s wat is the fus try it mind blowing
I think all the fuss started after it was shown in Pineapple Express.
I read this while watching Pineapple Express lmao
Been wondering how to do this for some time now. Thanks for this really helpful.
Awesome! I so glad you found it useful. Thanks for checking out the blog! 🙂
Can you do it with hash?
You can mix hash into the joints, but just rolling straight hash isn’t going to work.
SWEET!! been searching on how to roll this joint for a long time. Thank you the instructions were very simple and understandable.
So glad you enjoyed the article. 🙂
wont the fatter joint burn pass the small one?
Usually they meet in the middle. The fatter joint takes a little longer to burn than the small ones. You may have to experiment a little to find the best place to connect them.
Any tips on how thick the small joint should be compared to the thick one and with that ratio, where to make the hole on the big one? I saw someone say make a + not a t, but doesn’t that all depend on how thick they are for how fast they smoke? Thanks for the easy instructions btw 🙂
I usually make the small joint about half the size of the larger one. You want to place it so that the three top arms of the cross meet at the same time. If you use regular papers for both then you would get a +. If you want a cross I suggest using a king size for the larger one. Great questions. Thanks for sharing and checking out the blog.
Well thanks a lot for that great article and the details you gave answering questions! I’m enjoying my first try here not perfect yet but good trip!
