    i rolled like the 3rd joint i've ever rolled with KB and for some reason, i can't get it to keep burning, like it always goes out and i don't know why, because i've rolled a million joints the same with with schwag and it burns smooth every time. i use a rolling machine because i don't know how to do it by hand. it looks perfect but never stays lit. i don't know what the deal is. the weed and the papers are plenty dry. anyone ever had this problem and know how to curtail it?

    It might be fresh weed I had it happen once. The next day it burned fine. I think it might have been because the weed sat for a while.

    Just roll it, and if it won't burn put it in a tin for 4-14+ Hours and you should be all set to burn'.

    huh is right, when using rolling machines they generally roll blunts/joints too tight, to fix this problem, just roll the joint in between your fingers to loosen it up, if weed falls out the ends you know its working, if it doesnt it is probably still working, before you light it see how easy it is to breathe through, because the easier it is to breathe, the easier it will be to get a hit.:thumbsup:

    maybe there isnt enough weed in it? prolly that or ya it's to tight, jus roll it by hand and make it kinda loose and see how it burns...

    you sure you're not rolling it too tightly? i've caught myself doing that lots of times

    yeah i roll it with a nice consistency every time, never too loose or too tight, it just won't stay lit. i have left weed in my grinder overnight and rolled with it the next day and it still doesn't stay lit. it must just be the kind of weed. weird.

    It must have been wet, so thats why it had time to dry and burn correctly.

    A lot of shady dealers wet it to weigh it down more.

    Anyway, the machine is probably messed up. Do it by hand and distribute the weed evenly throughout the entire joint/blunt always.

    Never happens to me. Try to burn it and suck out of it at the same time. I dunno, usually gets more smoke in my mouth and does a better job with joints that wont stay lit. This worked the first couple of times I rolled J's unsuccessfully but luckly that never happens to me now :D.

    put the weed directly under your desklight and dry it out for 30 mins.
    if not, mix it with a little tobacco, which burns easily and helps keep the joint lit.

    i know its not wet weed, because i got it from one of my long time friends that i went to high school with and i know he wouldn't sell me shit. he only smokes and sells the chronic, except for the rare occasion he sells mids, but he never smokes anything but the chronic. i am goin to roll it in a blunt paper and leave it under my desk light to dry for a while and see what happens. thanks for all the help guys.

    Just wave your lighter over the whole thing for awhile before you spark it, but be careful not to burn the paper.

    I have to agree, rolling tobaco like TOPS or whatever else, not pipe tobacco. It burns evenly, and Ive never had one go out on me. You could use a pinch to keep it burning or use a lot as a filler for cones or bigger joints. Thats how I saw it done alot in Europe, but not in the US as much. :thumbsup:

    well i let it sit under my desk lamp for about 30 minutes and then took a long nap, around 5 hours or so. i woke up, let it sit another 30 under the light and then a couple hours without light. then i took it on the roof to smoke it, waved it through the lighter flame a few times and it STILL didn't stay lit. i give up. looks like i'll just have to smoke bowls.

    well personally i think the only weed you should ever roll with is schwagg anyways. i dont know if dank is harder to burn, but i know its more saved when smoked in bowls

    well yeah, obviously, but smoking a bowl on my roof at night in a residential area looks somewhat conspicuous, where as a joint just looks like a cig in the night
