The best joint rollers in 2022

Table of contents

Rolling a joint isn’t an especially complex science, but it can still be pretty tricky, especially if it’s your first time and you’re rolling freehand without any outside assistance. 

Also, until you really get a lot of joints on your resume, they probably won’t have the greatest shape or airflow.

Here’s a closer look at the best joint rollers around:

Best for ease of use – Raw ¼ hemp plastic cigarette rolling machine

  • Roller type: manual
  • Price: $3.49
  • Joint size: 79mm long, fits a 1 ¼ rolling paper
  • Material: plastic

If joint roller was a word, you’d probably find a picture of the Raw ¼ hemp plastic cigarette rolling machine next to the entry in the dictionary. This old school classic is the archetype, the device you probably think of when you picture joint rollers, and the most tried and true design. How did it become an icon and how has it stood the test of time? Easy –  it’s cheap, dependable, and extremely easy to use. 


Best overall – The Otto electric joint roller 

  • Roller type: automatic 
  • Price: $149
  • Joint size: short, king, and “Cal King” cones  
  • Material: mix of plastic, silicone, and metal

If you were to picture a joint roller that was the polar opposite of the previous entry, it would probably be the Otto. The Otto is to joint rollers what the smartphone is to rotary phones, a total reimagining of the capabilities and expectations for the technology. Retailing for a rather hefty $149.99, the Otto is not only an automatic, motorized joint roller, it also grinds your weed for you – automatically adjusting the speed and strength according to the texture and consistency of the cannabis flower in question. And then it twists it into a perfectly rolled cone. It’s the closest thing to having your own personal joint roller, and it will never take a day off. 


Best for cannagars – G2 CannaMold 

  • Roller type: manual
  • Price range: $49.99
  • Joint size: mold fits “small” (3.5 gram) and larger (7 gram) cannagars 
  • Material: plastic 

“Cannagars” may not be an everyday sort of option, but they are either a nice change of pace from smoking joints or a party favor that will have people puzzled or horrified – and lining up to take a hit. The Purple Rose Supply Cannagar Mold is an all-in-one kit for packing cannagars, complete with the mold, packing tool, skewers, and a wooden tip to protect your lips. You probably won’t break it out every day, but it can make any function one to remember.  


Best for speed – The Powermatic joint rolling machine

  • Roller type: manual
  • Price: $38.39
  • Joint size: regular, king size, and 100s 
  • Material: mix of metal and plastic 

Everybody had that friend (or were that friend) who could crank out joints one after the other. But literally speaking, you could easily do the same with no coordination whatsoever, thanks to the Powermatic elite manual cigarette injector. With a titanium plated compressor, high precision stainless steel parts and a one year warranty, this is a joint rolling machine that can really put in work. 


Best for beginners – The EZ Roller

  • Roller type: manual
  • Price: $24.99
  • Joint size: regular and king size 
  • Material: plastic 

Rolling a perfect joint with the EZ Roller is about as easy (EZ?) as it gets. Just pop it open, dump the herb into the trough, place a crutch in one end, close it and roll the pins. Then insert a paper, twist it, lick it, and repeat until you have your own little in-house pre-rolls factory up and running. IUt is also available in multiple sizes. 


Best integrated stash box – The Raw Automatic Rolling Box

  • Roller type: manual
  • Price: $22.99
  • Joint size: regular (1 ¼ papers)  
  • Material: metal 

Like the spork, the Raw automatic rolling box combines two essential tools – a stash box and a joint roller – in one handy square carrying case. Think of it as multitasking at its best – simply crumble up some herb inside the box and then twist it up right there on the plastic, toss the papers back inside and close it up.  


Best value – the Raw Natural Cone Shooter

  • Roller type: manual
  • Price: from $11.99
  • Joint size: King size cones (can also roll smaller joints) 
  • Material: plastic

The right to bear cone shooters might not be in the Constitution, but regardless, for less than $10 you can have your own extremely easy cone roller. Made by Raw, it vaguely resembles a stapler and is remarkably easy to use, helping even the least skilled joint roller fire out small, medium, and king sized cones in no time. 


Why use a joint roller?

The expert, one-handed joint rollers among us may turn their nose up, but there are plenty of reasons that you may want to get a joint rolling machine. 

  • People who are physically incapable of rolling joints

People who have disabilities, dexterity issues, or joint pain may have trouble rolling a joint on their own, and no access to pre-rolls or a friend who will roll for them. A joint machine means they don’t need to miss out. 

  • People who are throwing a party

If you’re throwing a function where you expect to have a lot of cannabis friendly guests then you may want to leave out a little box of joints for them to enjoy smoking in a sanitary way without passing them from lip to lip. But really, anytime you need to roll a lot of joints in a short period of time, a joint roller is a perfect solution. 

  • People who never learned how to roll and don’t have time for all that 

Rolling a joint isn’t the most complicated thing to learn, but if all your prior attempts ended in misshapen, pregnant joints that were either too tight or too loose, then why force it?

  • When you want to make a good first (joint) impression

At the end of the day, function is more important than form when it comes to joints. But why choose? A joint machine can help you roll joints and cones that not only hit great but also look good. And really, manifesting a joint from your pocket is nice, but if it looks like it comes directly out of a machine, then you’ll truly look like a professional. 

No joint rolling machine, no problem 

If you don’t want to invest $5 in a simple joint roller, you can still sort things out on your own. Rolling a joint freehand is a bit iffy the first time, but it gets easier very quickly and by the third or fourth time you should be more or less a pro.
