Rolling Machine Instructions:

And now we present rolling machine instructions in text form. These apply to the Raw Rolling Machine, the Zig Zag Joint Rolling Machine, Juicy Jay’s Jumbo Blunt Rolling Machine, or any other cigarette or joint roller of similar design.

There are just a few easy steps to follow and you’ll be rolling your own, lickity split…


  • Open up the rollers.
  • Put in a filter and slide it to one side.
  • Put in a big pinch of whatever you’re smoking. You might want to do this over a sheet of paper or a magazine, there could be some spilage.


  • Close it back up again.
  • Pick it up and turn both rollers toward you, using your fingers to keep the plastic taut around the inside so that the guts get nice and tight. 


  • Insert a sheet of rolling paper between the rollers, gummed side toward you. It might require a little shimmying. Don’t be scared.


  • Roll the paper in by continuing to roll towards you.
  • Stop before rolling it all the way in – you’ll want to leave a little sticking out so that you can lick it.
  • Now roll it in the rest of the way, giving it a few more rolls.
  • Open er up, and BOOM! You just rolled yourself a joint! Er, cigarette. 


  • Now smoke dat.
