Rolling a Joint Has Never Been Easier

The OG OTTO by Banana Bros rolls perfect joints in seconds, making it the ideal appliance for the stoner on the go.

When the average stoner hears the words joint rolling machine, they imagine themselves having to grind weed and manually operate an uninspired piece of plastic with a cone stuck on the end. And who can blame them? Over time we have seen a massive amount of these hit the market, but nonetheless, many lack features that set them apart from the crowd… until the first-of-its-kind OG OTTO rolled up on the scene with an automatic process unlike anything we’ve seen before. 

There’s a wondrous simplicity to the OTTO, which requires you to do nothing more than put unground flower in the top, place a cone in the bottom, press a button and watch it work its magic. You’ll be presented with a perfectly stuffed cone in approximately 10 seconds. 

The list of people this device could work weed wonders for is endless: joint smokers who live their lives on the go, people that can’t roll joints or have yet to learn, people with disabilities that prevent them from rolling comfortably or with ease, people who simply love smoking cones, all the way to those who want to impress their friends with badass technology. I have read numerous stories and reviews online about this product changing the lives of people who cannot physically roll joints without discomfort, and without this device there would not be many viable options on the market.

It’s recommended to start with a little less Cannabis than you think you may need. You can always add more to the top of the device, but if you overfill, you may see some spillage around the base. For that reason, I would still place the OTTO on top of a rolling tray during use.

One of the more impressive aspects of the OTTO is the uniformity of the joints produced. The top of the device is an expandable grinding chamber, which slowly grinds your buds into a uniform consistency. This is key to a smoothly burning joint. After the flower is ground up in the top chamber, the OTTO evenly spits out Cannabis in short bursts into the cone sitting underneath. Say goodbye to the days of joints that can canoe and need to be re-lit 10 times.

Of course, rolling your own joint can be rewarding sometimes – but don’t we all have enough going on these days that we could use a little break? I know for myself, after one week using the OTTO I could never envision myself going back to the old days of an archaic device made of plastic.
