There are some symbols that manage to withstand the test of time, and Nike’s success has led to their logo being one that millions of people all over the world recognize. Nike shoes made it big in the ’90s and remains a staple household brand still today. Some people see the Nike logo as one of pride and endurance, while others think of comfort and durability, but no matter how you feel about the company itself, it’s a ton of fun learning how to roll a joint in their image.

What is the Nike logo?

If you were wondering how we planned to spell out the word Nike with nothing more than rolling papers and cannabis, then you are probably one of the few that is unfamiliar with the Nike logo. Nike most definitely made a massive fortune from their name made out in a hard to miss bold font, but their logo is much simpler. The Nike logo is a check mark that is thicker towards the bottom but still comes to a peak at the tip like any other.

The more you analyze the shape, the more you will see that this is the perfect design for a joint. It has a really nice thick bottom that can be challenging to recreate, but it’s relatively simple, and it all comes to the perfect point for a mouthpiece. It’s literally the exact shape as most weed pipes, which is why it fits comfortably into the palm of your hand and is really slow-burning as it smolders away for your enjoyment.

The problem is that even if you know how to roll a joint like a pro, you are probably still going to take a few tries with this one. Luckily, you have us to guide you along the way with easy step by step instructions that are simple, straightforward, and descriptive, which should help to make the whole process a whole lot easier.

You will need:

  • 3 king-sized rolling papers
  • 2-3 grams of cannabis
  • Weed grinder
  • Scissors


  1. First things first, you will need to grind up your weed so that it’s ready to roll. This is best done with a weed grinder or scissors, and it’s a good idea to remove any remaining bits that are sharp like stems or seeds, as they might puncture the paper, forcing you to start all over.

  2. The next step in the process calls for a cone joint that is a bit flat in the end. Now, it’s going to be impossible to roll that, so what you’ll need to do is roll a fair-sized cone that tapers down towards the mouthpiece, and then use your fingers to press the broader end so that it’s a bit flatter than your average roll.

  • Once you’ve got that down, the next part is a bit harder, as you will need to guess how long this second partial joint should be. The goal here is to roll half of a joint or less so that it can be pressed into the wide checkmark bottom that we all know and love from the Nike logo. You can do this in one of two ways. The first is to roll a second cone joint like you did the first so that you can slowly trim it down to a size that fits. The second is to gauge how big you’ll need it to be and toll roll, just a short and fat blunt that can be shaped into the tip. When you figure out which one you want to do, get it rolled and then move onto the next step.

  • Now you should have one perfectly rolled joint and a fat, little blunt, now it’s time to make the two pieces come together. Take one end of the short blunt and gently feed the open end of the cone joint into it. This is where things can get a little bit tricky, as you will have to work the weed and paper with our fingers until it bends into shape. You can do this by rolling the joint back and forth between your fingers to loosen the cannabis grind and then apply a small amount of pressure where the two joints meet to the shorter one upwards.

  • So now you should have a cone joint that has a pudgy tip stick up just a little, so we need to work on the point for the checkmark. Sometimes this is as easy as pinching the still open tip, but since there is no glue strip to hold the two pieces together as yet, you will need to do this carefully. If the small blunt is too filled to do this, then you can carefully let some out by rolling it in between your fingers until it’s the ideal size and shape for the Nike logo tip.

  • Next up is sealing the deal, and after a couple of tries, it shouldn’t take any more than one glue strip to do this, but it’s a good idea to keep a few extra rolling papers on hand in case the first one doesn’t make your joint airtight. Use a pair of scissors to remove the glue strip from the remaining rolling paper carefully, then add a small amount of moisture and use it to wrap around the bend of the roll, where the two joints meet. This should close any holes that might lead to a leak when you try to smoke your masterpiece.

  • Perform a draw test. As we mentioned, a few holes can cause the smoke leaking out and make it nearly impossible to truly enjoy your cannabis roll. So, the last and final step before sparking up this beauty should be to take a deep inhale through the mouthpiece and then a long and gentle exhale while feeling around the seams with your fingertips. If you feel any air escaping from small holes, then you will need to patch those leaks using additional glue strips before proceeding.

    Now that you’ve figured out how to roll this fantastic joint, it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the spoils from all that hard work. Luckily, though it might look confusing, there is a right way to do this, and it’s by lighting the thick lower tip of the checkmark. Once it’s ignited, you will be greeted by a slow and long-burning roll that is perfect to enjoy alone or among a group of your closest friends.
