- Otherwise known as a filter or tip, the crutch is a small bit of stiff paper that acts as a mouthpiece for a joint. When done correctly, a crutch prevents burnt plant matter from reaching your lips, mouth, and lungs by providing a buffer between the burning part of the joint. Some rolling paper companies provide premade crutches for ease of use, while other manufacturers sell reusable ones made of glass to reduce paper waste.
