Here at Cannabis Wiki, we have covered all different types of joint rolls from the plumber’s joint to the windmill, and of course, the ever-popular rainbow blunt that had consumer raving all of last year, but until now we had not touched one of the cannabis plants most wildly popular products on the market which is hash.

Hash is a delightful marijuana concentrate that can contain anywhere from 40%-80% THC, making it one of the most potent and pure cannabis products out there, but a lot of consumers who don’t rely on a vaporizer have no idea how to use it. Luckily, we’ve got you covered, as with several years of experience, we have learned more than a few things about this incredibly popular product, including all the best ways that you can roll it up to smoke with regular everyday rolling papers.

Can you roll a joint with pure hash?

To answer this question, technically, you could, but the end result would be a roll that wouldn’t burn very well, leaving hot falling coals and ashes in its wake, wasting most of the product and placing anything within an arm’s reach at risk of getting burnt. Instead, it is highly recommended that you combine the hash with some other slow-burning alternative that can help the hash to slowly smolder away without harming you or any of your surroundings and avoiding any unnecessary waste.

How to roll a joint with hash

If you want to enjoy a potent hash joint, then there are a few things that you should know before you start.

  1. Putting a giant tube of a chunk of hash into a rolling paper, even with a mixing material, is a recipe for disaster. Instead, you should break the hash into tiny chunks, as small as they can get, which will help to ensure a smooth and even burn, which do not require constant lighting.

  2. Cone rolling papers are not very compatible with hash, which tends to weigh more than the dry leaves it gets mixed with, so it’s a good idea to use regular flat rolling papers for a hash joint.

  3. The ratio of hash to dry plant materials is important, and the thick marijuana concentrate should never make up more than 50% of a joint filling. The ideal amount is closer to 30-40%, which leaves a cushy barrier of safety when using softer hashes that burn slowly compared to dry products.

There are several options available on the market today, but only a few that are recommended for use with cannabis, as the aroma and flavor of the joint will be significantly influenced by whatever you put inside it. Below, you will find the top 3 options to mix with hash and the pros and cons of each one.

1. Cannabis buds

Hash is a concentrated product made from the oils and plant materials from a marijuana plant, so it makes sense that this is the most preferred option out there, but it is also the most expensive. So, if you can afford it, the flavor and smooth smoke from this mixture are by far one of the best mixing agents for a hash joint.

2. Cannabis leaves

The leaves of a marijuana plant don’t contain much for the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, so they don’t pack the same powerful punch as pure buds, but they do mimic the taste quite well. Pot leaves can help to stretch out hash for anyone on a tight budget, and they also offer a smooth hit that is only slightly harsher than cannabis flowers.

3. Tobacco

It is not uncommon to find cannabis products that include tobacco, and blunt rolls are a perfect example of that, but this mixing option is mostly accepted by cigarette smokers who enjoy the flavor of a filter-less smoke, but some consumers like the combination as it can help to enhance the effects, and get rid of any cigarette cravings at the same time. Tobacco is the cheapest mix for a hash joint, but the taste is one that is overruled by the tobacco leaves, so it isn’t ideal for everyone.
