3. Closing The Roller

Put the filter on the left hand side and then add tobacco.

Make sure all your tobacco is inside the roller without any stands hanging out.  Look at it from the top and also on the sides.

Now for rolling. While you are rolling, you should make sure you are feeling the pressure on the roll while you see the tobacco on top moving into space. The hinged side of the roller should face you as you place your thumbs to support the roller with your palms.

Be very careful as you pull the roller towards you as you feel the pressure. If you think there is a lot of weight you have overfilled the roller; therefore, it needs to be opened, and the tobacco on top removed leaving the remaining tobacco compact. The hinged side should rotate towards you.

4. Prepare The Rolling Paper

Identify the adhesive side; this will help you to insert the opposite side into the closed roller.

Adjust until the sticky side faces you while the hinged roller also faces you. This process is essential and challenging for many therefore ensures you perform it skillfully.

Start to remove the paper from the roller carefully, but it requires some skill to grab the paper on the roller.

This part requires patience and a lot of trying. When you finally remove the paper from the roller ensure you lick the adhesive and roll the paper carefully into the roller with the part that does not have gum going in first.

It is advisable before placing the paper into your roller to make sure it is straight to make it roll evenly in the cigarette roller. Ensure it is efficient by using many even rotations to enhance more safety.

Take a few seconds as you wait for the gum to dry, if you are satisfied with the whole process you can open the roller, and you will have a nicely packed cigarette.

Never leave the place you use to roll the cigarette dirty, ensure you dust and clean to causing any health problems.
