How to Roll a Hash Hole Joint Beautifully

What is a Hash Hole?

Hash Holes have burst onto the cannabis scene as the next level in joint-smoking experiences. You may have also heard them referred to as donut holes, snake holes, or worm holes. Basically, they are concentrate-infused joints. By combining high quality flower with hash or hash rosin, you can take your joint smoking to the next level. The term ‘hash hole’ comes from the resemblance of a hole in the middle of the joint that occurs when smoked.

The smoke from a hash hole is thick and filled with flavor. The high is intense and they last longer than a standard joint because the hash inside takes longer to combust than a joint with just flower. Rolling a hash hole is not much different than rolling a standard joint. It takes just a little bit more patience and ability, but anyone can do it!

Many agree that hash holes were first made popular by Fidel’s cannabis company in California. In this article we are going to cover the materials you need to roll a hash hole and provide you with a step-by-step guide that you can easily follow along with. Let’s get rolling!

What You’ll Need

  • Cannabis flower (about 1.5 grams)
  • Hash (rosin or bubble) (about 0.3 grams)
  • Rolling paper (preferably king size)
  • Crutch / joint tip / filter tip
  • Rolling tray (optional)
  • Cigar glue (optional)

Choose Your Cannabis Flower

The first step in rolling a hash hole is choosing your flower. While it is important to choose a strain that you love, it is more important to use properly hydrated flower. This usually means fresh flower. If your flower is dry, you can try rehydrating it with hydration stones or some spinach leaves placed in a bag with your flower. Dry flower burns quicker than fresh flower. This could mean your flower burns quicker than your hash and makes the joint smoke unevenly.

Choose Your Hash

Next up is choosing the hash you will use. Strain choice is entirely up to your personal preferences. Maybe you use the same strain as the flower you chose or you use something you think will compliment the chosen flower. There are certain consistencies which will work better in a hash hole than others. Budder or badder can easily be formed into a snake which is ideal for hash hole rolling. If you choose to use other consistencies and rolling a snake proves difficult, you can also break the hash into tiny bits and line them up down the middle of your joint.

Roll It

Grind up your flower and lay most of it (about ¾) on the joint paper. Position your filter tip at the end of the joint paper like pictured above in the “Choose your hash” section. Now, take your hash and roll it into a snake that extends the length of the joint paper from the filter tip to the other edge. Lay this snake down the center of the joint. Finish the preparation by laying the rest of your flower over the hash snake so it is fully covered. 

To roll the joint, place the filter tip on the side of the joint that matches your dominant hand (i.e. right handed people place the filter tip on the right side). Take the joint between your thumbs and pointer fingers, lightly press the long sides of the paper together, and begin to slowly roll back and forth. This helps to shape the flower into a cylinder with the hash snake neatly placed in the center. Take your time with this. And remember, practice makes perfect, so do not get discouraged if it takes a bit of doing.

Once you have a firm cylinder, begin to tuck the long edge of the joint paper which is closest to you in so it tucks behind the cylinder of flower. Then begin to roll up towards the top. Work your way from the filter end to the open end. Again, this may take some practice. When it is fully rolled up either lick the gum strip to seal it or use your cigar glue (you may consider cigar glue if these joints are for others than yourself). 

This can take some practice to do properly, especially if you are not used to rolling king size papers. Don’t beat yourself up, it’s not the easiest thing in the world!

Smoke It

Now the joint is rolled and you’re ready to smoke that puppy! Although you may be very excited, remember to take your time. Smoking the joint too quickly will most likely result in the flower burning quicker than the hash snake. Take slow and deep inhales. We hope you enjoy your hash hole! Now, go and impress your friends by rolling a joint unlike anything they have smoked before.
