How to Pack a Cone 

Whether you’re a long-time cannabis smoker or a novice, a joint is one of the most enjoyable smoking options. The only downside to smoking joints is that they require much more effort to procure than do pipes and other smoking accessories. If you want to cut the hassle out of rolling your next joint, you might consider a pre-rolled cone. 

Pre-rolled cones simplify the process of smoking cannabis. They come pre-rolled with stems, so you only need to worry about packing your cone with your favorite type of cannabis and twisting the end of the joint when you’re finished. 

If you've never used a pre-rolled cone in the past, you might be wondering how to pack a cone. While pre-rolled cones make the process easier, it's a good idea to know what you're doing before you start packing. 

We've developed this simple guide to help our readers better understand the top techniques for packing cones. By following the steps in this easy-to-read guide, you'll have all the tools you need to roll the perfect joint. Let's get started!

Step 1: Grind Your Cannabis

The first step involves grinding your cannabis. If you're going to use a pre-rolled joint, it's essential to have a grinder to break down the cannabis flower into tiny pieces. The smaller the cannabis pieces are, the easier they will be to pack into your cone. 

Make sure to grind enough cannabis to fill your joint entirely. If you don't have enough cannabis, your joint will be too loose, which will create an unpleasant smoking experience. 

Step 2: Fill Your Cone

Once you've finished grinding your cannabis, it's time to start filling your cone. In most cases, this is as simple as picking up pieces of cannabis and dropping them into your cone. Make sure to firmly hold the stem of your cone as you fill it, but don't grip the cone too hard – you might end up ruining the filter. 

If you don't like the idea of using your fingers to load your cone, several other options are available. Using tweezers or cone packing accessories can help speed up the process if you don't want to use your hands. 

Step 3: Pack Your Cone

Once you fill your cone, it's time to start packing. We recommend using a cone packer, chopstick, or any other slim accessory to pack the cone down. 

As you pack the cone, be sure to add more cannabis as necessary to keep the joint from becoming too short. 

It is best if you alternate between filling your cone and packing it – this will provide the optimal results. 

Step 4: Twist Your Cone

Now that your cone is firmly packed, it's time to twist the top of the joint. Make sure that the joint is the correct length before you twist the rolling paper. If you don't, it will be hard to refill the cone after you've twisted the rolling paper. 

Once your joint is tightly twisted, it's ready to smoke!

Additional Tips to Roll a Cone

Now that you know how to pack the perfect cone, it's time to consider some additional tricks and tips that can help you improve your joints. We've put together three extra tips that will ensure your next cone packing attempt is successful. 

Pack Your Cone Tight

One of the biggest mistakes people make when they first use pre-rolled cones is packing the cone too loosely. If you want to enjoy your next joint, it's essential to pack the cone firmly to make sure the cannabis is compact inside the cone. 

Not only does this mean that your joint will smoke much more smoothly, but tight packing will also ensure that you get enough cannabis inside the joint. 

While it's essential to pack your cone well, be sure not to overdo it. If you're too persistent at filling your cone, you may bend the joint's stem and tear the rolling paper, so keep your packing at a reasonable pressure. 

Another consideration: if you pack the cone too tightly, you might restrict airflow, which can make it hard to smoke. 

Consider Accessories 

If you're worried that you won't be able to pack your cone well, you might want to consider some accessories. As cannabis use becomes more commonplace in North America, you’ll find a range of companies making products aimed to simplify the process of rolling joints and packing cones. 

One of the most useful tools you can find is a cone packer. These are long sticks that make it easy to pack your cone. While you can use a chopstick or other kitchen utensils to the same effect, cone packers are much more convenient. 

In some cases, a cone packer will come included with your rolling papers or cone. Make sure to check your cone's packaging for a cone packer before you buy one independently. 

Keep Things Even

Lastly, it's essential to keep your joint as even as possible when you're packing it. If you don't pay close attention to what you're doing, you can easily bend your joint or place too much pressure on the joint paper, which can reduce your chances of having an "even smoke" when you light up your joint. 

As always, be sure to pay close attention throughout the packing process. If you don't want to ruin your cone by placing too much pressure on the rolling paper, be sure to stay focused.
