Just use a small part ripped off of an index card. Roll it up so smoke can get through, but no weed does.

i find that business cards are too thick most of the time to roll a smooth cylindrical roach, so i went out and bought some filter paper from any headshop, its like 50 cents for a pack of 50.

around here, everyone just rips a bit of the zigzag pack off and that becomes your roach. thats why if you ever come to toronto and ask someone if they have papes, theres never a cover on the pack or a badly mutilated one :lol:

cut off a strip of index card and roll it into whatever size filter you want. works wonders for hitting the very last bud.

A roach is a bit of card used to give a joint some stability and is the most crucial part of making a half decent spliff. . No one like smoking a minging spliff when the end is wet and soggy so use a roach. A good roach allows the smoke to pass through it with no bits of tobacco or herb flying into your mouth, cause we all hate that horrible taste. A roach should be approx 1cm by 1.5, but a larger one may be required with a massive spliff.

Roll the bit of card up tightly

Good roaches include the packet from the rolling papers, a pack of cigs, a business card or anything that rolls easily and doesn’t end up in a square/triangle

Image

The finished roach is ready to drop into your joint
