Roaches don't filter the smoke but they do allow it to flow. A good roach stops the joint from dissolving in your mouth or burning your lips when you chase that last elusive toke. Here's how to make a good one.

The shape and size of the roach is down to personal taste. Wide roaches can make the smoke rough where as tight ones tend to clog, so somewhere in the middle is probably best. Plain, unprinted card is healthier as some printing inks emit poisonous fumes when burnt. An excellent variation on the simple tube roach can be made from a 2cm by 7cm strip of thin card. Tightly roll the card at a slight angle so that the end of the roach is conical. Roll your joint with the roach already inside (conical end facing outward) and let the card spring out a little to give the smoke room to flow. A cone roach stops any meteor-like tarballs from singeing your gullit.


Some smokers prefer to insert the roach after making the joint. Others find that putting the roach in before rolling is less fiddly and makes for a neater fit and a speedier roll. Go with what suits you (but the last way's best)
