There’s nothing worse than lighting up a joint only to have it totally canoe on you. Canoeing happens when part of your joint burns faster than another, causing it to burn down unevenly. When you get a bad canoeing effect, half your joint can burn itself down before the other half even gets a chance to get charred.
Here are some common causes of a canoeing joint and what you can do to prevent it:
Joints that haven’t had the flower dispersed evenly throughout a roll may leave some parts of the joint apt to canoe. Similarly, a joint that isn’t rolled tight enough will leave spaces between the paper and the weed that will have the paper burn too fast in some parts.
When rolling, ensure your weed is properly and evenly busted up, evenly spread out across your paper, and rolled tight enough that the paper makes contact with the weed, but not so tight it can’t be smoked.
Lighting It Up
Sometimes a canoeing joint has to do with how it’s been lit up. It’s easy to light only one-half of the joint and forget to roll the joint around a bit during the light to ensure that all sides of the lighting end get fire.
If you find that you’ve lit only half your joint’s tip and you’re seeing a canoe, the best fix is to lick your finger and place a tiny dab of saliva on the canoeing part to help slow the burn and let the burning part of the joint catch up.
Sometimes you can have the perfect roll, but you’ve lit your joint up in a super windy place, causing some major canoeing. To avoid this, make sure you shelter yourself while lighting your joint, and if you have some canoeing, the saliva trick could help.
No one likes a canoeing joint, but if you follow these steps of rolling evenly, lighting up your joint carefully, and smoking in a sheltered space, you can ensure you’ll enjoy a smooth smoke.

Hey bro no offense but if that joint pictured is how you roll, you shouldnt teach people to roll. Honestly for beginners, the best way to roll ur joint is to crumple the paper in a ball first and make sure ur tree is broken down fine with no big chunks. The paper will be easier to roll if crumpled up. Double wrap if you dont like the crumpled paper look and no crutches, or “filters” those are for chumps. If anything order some Organitips and put them on your joint. Never put anything bsides weed inside of your joint paper.
No way I’m double rolling anything. Don’t take advice from this guy
Never double roll anything. Don’t take advice from this guy
Place spit from your tongue on the faster burning part to stifle the quicker burning side. If it’s that too much work, crush the lame J in a pipe. Because, I know you have one. Or, if you can’t figure it out, qhy you indulging on a simple task?
Harley your an opinionated douche. Your not an expert in anything. Take your advice and shove it.
Well a trick I’ve seen is to wet your finger and thumb and lightly do a wet ring at the bottom of the canoe and it will give time for it to even out a lot of people just use spit but that depends who’s partaking with you
Jesus Christ dude. Are you the one smoking the shit doob? Cuz you’re complaining like this guy rolled it for you. We get it, you ego boost yourself off how people consume their drugs.
If you put too much crumble or wax etc… it will canoe as well. Best way to get around that is to make sure it is a very small amount and has flower all around it.
So..best technique I EVER learned..took me years and my joints are perfect flawless cylinders everhtime….bust up weed..(properly cured and dried) in grinder….place evenly distributed in the paper….don’t fill it 2 full that you don’t have any extra paper..roll the paper back in fourth with your thumbs starting in the middle to ensure your not pushing weed towards the middle causing it to get prego..roll it a few times back and fourth until the weed inside is an even cylinder..put the paper/weed in between your thumb and pointer and fold the paper over the weed..tuck it in nicely..takes some practice..keep the paper taught between your figures and proceed to roll up like normal..sometimes after I fold and tuck the first seem in ill hold the joint with my left hand and take my right hand grab the top of the paper with my figures and tug it up gently just to make sure the seem is tight before I roll it up….when you go to seal it its important not lick and lay the gum straight across the paper..make sure the ends down tent to curve inwards..the gum should be xompelty straight across the paper..like a ciggerette….hard to understand in text..super easy to understand in person..ANYONE can roll PERFECT JOINTS this way….once you lock and seal pinch the ends to make sure nothing falls out..I’ll usually roll the end I light into a fuse and fold the other end in forna mouth piece..ALWAYS MASSAGE FIRST..gently massage yournfingires all around thenjoint making sure the weed is evenly spaced out inside and there arnt any areas of tight clumps/chunks..EVERY NOW AMD THEN you’ll miss a little tiny ass stem and this process will poke a hole in the paper which is super frustrating but thats the most crucial step..ALWAYS MASSAGE!!
Lol nah man here in NL we roll hasj with tabaco so no not only flower in my paper
That other reply kinda cringe tho. You can use filters, they exist for a reason and improve your smoke. Preferably don’t crumple your paper, it can weaken it and rolling fresh is a faster way to learn, you can always keep practicing with the same weed! But most importantly, smoke how you want to smoke and do what you find comfortable or efficient. People are pretentious know it alls l and will say you’re not doing it right regardless, but they’re stinky and don’t know how to enjoy things.
Kid.s I can roll a joint going down the road hanging out the window while it’s raining
Conoeing wtf is that. Running is more like it.
@ Harley that is horrible advice. The paper should be stiff for one, never double wrap. That’s the worst advice ever. Idk who thought you to roll but that’s not the way. Best way to learn is how I did. My brother gave me an oz and a bunch of papers and said don’t stop til you get it right. Break it down fine spread evenly. Use thumbs and pointer finger as guides and dominant fingers. Fold paper 2 3rds of the way when spreading out weed then use the four fingers mentioned previoulsy to create a up and down motion. If need be get a rolling machine and it helps just to understand the concept.
nice name :))
I call it both so it really doesn’t matter both make sense
